Synopsis

Addictive, dangerous, your guiltiest pleasure yet: the thrilling climax to the trilogy.

The very place where their passionate love affair began, The Manor, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse’s lives. She has accepted that she’ll never tame the fierceness in Jesse, and she doesn’t want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she’s finally got beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise which lead Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is. He knows too well how to take her to a place beyond ecstasy…but will he also drive her to the brink of despair? It’s time for this man to confess.

Review

I started reading this ages ago and put it down to read everything else in the middle and now I am wondering why did I ever do that?
This Man Confessed is just the best. The Lord of the Manor is pure bliss and I totally did not see the end coming. Everything really was confessed and I mean everything. Even things that were only hinted at along the way were explained in full. Everything makes so much sense now.
To top off an excellent series, we get an end treat of the story being in Jesse’s POV.
If you want to know anymore you will just have to read the series for yourself.

Review

Jesse’s POV on the age reveal really makes a difference. It was interesting to know what he was thinking when he didn’t have the power for a little bit.
As always, if only it went a bit longer.

Synopsis

Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O’Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape–and now he’s back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man’s steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more. And it’s exactly where Jesse wants her–within touching distance…

Review

Jesse and Ava’s story continues in ‘beneath this man’. Everything I liked about the first book in the ‘this man’ series applies to the second book in the series.
Their relationship is getting more intense and at some points a little suffocating. Ava is unsure as to whether she should stay and break her heart even further. How much heart ache can one person really suffer?
Jesse starts to show his true colours and we get to learn more about his colourful past. However is may be his past that becomes the ultimate undoing with his relationship with Ava.

Reading Jesse’s POV at the end of the novel is always something exciting to look forward to. If only they were a bit longer.

Jesse’s point of view just keeps getting better and better the more short stories I read. I really wish there was a book in his point of view now.

Synopsis

Welcome to the sensual world of This Man…

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 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

This Man is Jesse Ward and he is one smoking hot Lord of the Manor. He also needs the extension to the manor redecorated.

Enter Ava, a young interior designer who thinks that the manor is not really her thing and thinks it would be better for one of the more traditional designers from the company she works for. However she has been specially requested. Thinking she is off to meet some stuck-up old country gentlemen, she is surprised instead to find a handsome, no boundaries playboy running the ‘hotel’.
Their attraction is undeniable. But what starts as a bit of fun, so becomes something much more. Ava is way in over her hand, and must escape to save her mind and her heart. Yet this becomes harder and harder as Jesse is determined to have her and will stop at nothing to pose her.

Loved Ava so much, but loved Jesse even who. They just seems to click really well. The other characters in the book are a delight too.

Also liked reading the bonus scene from Jesse’s point of view. Very enlightening. Wasn’t sure if I would at first, but glad I did. I love reading into the mind of the leading men. It good to know what they are thinking for a change
