*This review is completely spoiler free. I truly believe that you have to enjoy this series without any preconceptions or hints as to what will occur. You need to experience Jesse and Ava in all their crazy glory for yourself.*

Jodi Ellen Malpas first appeared on our horizons in October 2012 with a fairly quiet release for This Man which began, rapidly, to snowball as readers, reviewers and bloggers all started to rave about this wonderful, bossy, demanding and a little bit crazy new hero – Jesse Ward, Lord of the Sex Manor. By the time January came around anticipation for the release of the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man, had reached fever pitch and it’s no different this time as we’

I finally got my hands on 'This man confessed' and i'm still riding on central Jesse cloud nine. I have never been more excited about a release of a book, the story of Jesse and Ava and there unrelenting relationship wraps up in this epic finale and I worshipped every page.

Jodi ellen Malpas goes on my list of favourite authors she has two hugely redeeming qualities, number one: she is gorgeously British and proud of it, delivering (and not apologising for) her wonderful Britis

"‘You’ve taken me completely, baby. You’ve swallowed me up and drowned me in your beauty and spirit. You know I can’t function without you. You’ve made my life as beautiful as you are. You’ve made me want to live a worthy existence—a life with you. All I need is you—to look at you; to listen to you; to feel you.’ He drops my hands and smoothes his palms over my thighs. ‘To love you.’"


What more can I say, about a series
I just. Why. Why did I read this. Why. Why did I keep going. Why don't any of my friends like me enough to take me aside and tell me to stop hating myself and take some time to love me enough to stop punishing myself with terrible books that I know are only going to cause me agony? WHY DON'T YOU LIKE ME, FRIENDS? YOU COULD SEE ME OVER HERE WITH THE BOOK. WHY, FRIENDS? WHY? I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS, FRIENDS.

So it’s Monday night at midnight... what am I doing? Thats right, I am awake clicking the refresh screen on amazon to see if ‘This Man Confessed’ is live so I can stay up half the night and read it! I was THAT EXCITED! And let me tell you all- it did not disappoint. The best book in the trilogy by far!

Before I get into my review, let me introduce you to my favorite crazy man JESSE WARD, and all his fabulous qualities that make me love him so!

This review is likely to contain spoilers, by which I mean they’re everywhere.

If I could give this book zero stars, I would.

I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided it’d be a good idea to read this. I mean, after all, I wasn’t exactly a fan of the first two books. Can I plead temporary insanity? I’m going to chalk it up to it being one of those cases where it was so bad I couldn’t stop reading—and that goes for the trilogy as a whole. Apparently, it would seem, I’m an even bigger glutton

Maybe I should let myself cool off a tad before writing this review.. Nah, I'll dive in while it's HOT. Yes, this book is HOT. If you loved Jesse Ward in This Man or Beneath This Man, I will be astounded if you don't fall fan-crazy in love with him more in This Man Confessed. He's still got his uber controlling (even more-so in ways) attitude and his "Ava, watch your fucking mouth" hang up but in this book, he's absolutely swoonworthy. He'

Well that is that... I can't believe it's over.

Things I will miss about this trilogy:

Jesse & his HUGE ... oh, c'mon! get your mind out of a gutter ... I was going to say "variety of f*cks"

The conclusion was everything I hoped it would be. We finally got to the bottom of Jesse Ward. I was so much happier with Ava the second half of the book. The first half I was ready to reach

God, this was a hell of a ride.
If you thought they couldn’t be worse than in the previous books, well, you are thoroughly mistaken.


This book starts two weeks after the end of Beneath This Man, so if you've read the series you know what’s happening. And yes, it is a pretty beautiful part of this book.
Unfortunately, it lasts very little time and soon the psychoses of both characters return

The third, and sadly last book in this series picks up right after Beneath This Man ends. Ava has agreed to marry her Lord, and Jesse being his neurotic self he needs this to happen sooner rather than later. So everything is put

”You keep my heart beating, baby, but you can also make it fucking stop.”


My rating for this book ranges from rating the story itself and a rating for the epilogue.

3 Stars for the story

5 Stars for the epilogue

The story starts with the couple’s wedding day and then drops you off the love roller coaster as soon as you board. For the first half of the story Ava drove me insane but Jesse Ward FINALLY won my affections in this final installment, he was adorable and sexy the whole book!

This is it...the end of the series and Wow...what a ride!


The story starts off only two weeks after Beneath This Man and if you've read that, you know what is happening. It is wonderful and...sooo beautiful. And then we get some Jesse confessions but we all knew it was coming. Even though Ava had a good idea, she still comes unglued and rightfully so.

Gitte: What an absolutely bloody perfect end to the crazy, emotional and passionate ride that was the ‘This Man’ trilogy. We’ve had so many theories and questions, and finally we’re let into some pretty heart breaking and tragic secrets. Secrets that answer every single question, and leaves us with an aching heart and a complete understanding of The Lord, The God, The Sexy and Cocky Man that is Mr Jesse Ward.

No spoilers from us as per usual, but you will

Jesse-- "Tell me what you want, baby."
Ava-- "Just you. However you come."
Jesse-- "I come with uncontrollable love for you. Is that good enough?"
Ava-- "It's good enough."

Things seem to be going smoothly for Jesse and Ava. She knows she will never be able to completely tone down the control freak in him, but she knows he his trying to be better for her. Soon, Ava finds out more about Jesse involving his past. Can she accept Jesse and all of his secrets?

He flattens my palms on his chest and holds them there firmly. ‘It was made to love you, Ava. For too long it was useless, redundant, not required. Now it’s gone into overdrive. It swells with happiness when I look at you. It splinters with pain when we fight. And it beats wildly when I make love to you. Maybe I go overboard with my love, but that’s never going to change. I’ll love you this fiercely until the day I die, baby.'

What a fantastic ending to the end of this wonderful series!!!!
Ill be first to admit that this, Jesse and Eva frustrated me at times during this series but now knowing what I do... Everything makes perfect sense and all his actions were somewhat Justified-ish

There have been some many wonderful reviews that I just thought I would highlight my thoughts on this truly fantastic love story!! I also don't want to give anything away so my suggestion is to hurry up and read this book, this entire series. It will definitely be one of those series that I will reread over and over again.

((Lots of swearing is involved in this review; all spoilers clearly marked))
I actually found the final book more enjoyable than the first two despite the whole (view spoiler)

This is still an absurd over-the-top version of the "Billionaire corrupts a young girl" trope...
I still wanted Eva to run away.
I still find the whole set up ridiculous.
...But it was a wild ride, and I had fun.

Jesse and Ava’s love is…


Pure, unapologetic, powerful love. It’s potent. It overpowers us both.


Who wouldn’t want to be loved so powerfully, so passionately?


Nothing can break us.


I never want to be without your fierce love.

And then my mind moseys through all things Jesse-ish-the lace, the calla lilies, the peanut butter, the scorns for swearing – and I mentally smile. All of the various degrees of Jesse style fuck

I cannot believe it's over!!! After I was done crying and convincing myself that it was truly the end... I sat down to contemplate the review I would write. First off, I absolutely, hands down give Confessed 5+ Stars. Yes folks, this is another book that I need more stars for.

With the "end of" this book comes the end of the countdown, the sense fuckings, all of the -ish's, always in lace, Johns gold tooth smile, Sam's where's the love, making friends, the mansion, all the women we love to ha
