This Man Book Review

jeThis Man – Jodi Ellen Malpass

Blurb: Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward–a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn’t want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can’t control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

Review: The cover and blurb attracted me to this novel. I read it in one sitting as I wanted to know what happened. One of the main characters Jesse was a little too controlling – stalking Ava, telling her what to wear, pulling her out on her swearing etc, but he was intriguing. And who doesn’t love a man in a suit? I wanted to learn more of why he is the way he is. I did wish Ava would have stood up for herself more though, however she is a likeable character. She can’t deny the attraction  she feels for Jesse, and she wants him. Lucky for her, he will stop at nothing to get her. Jodi’s writing is extremely descriptive, well-written and engaging. The characters are realistic, especially Ava’s mother. This book is great for fans of E.L James.
