Do you remember in This Man when he got fed up and just left her for 4 days without any word? It was sometime during those 4 days that he slept with Coral. I'm not sure if they were technically in a relationship at the time though, because even Ava wasn't sure what their status was at the time.(less)

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 a

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.

Just don't read any farther than this if you don't want to know anything about these books, okay?

"‘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.’"

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 for punishment.

Anyway, I

★★★★★! This Man Confessed, book 3 of 3. The conclusion of the in-control yet so out-of-control, Jesse Ward’s intense & imperious romance of Ava O’Shea. A whirlwind tale filled with secrets, lies, villains & suspense plus their captivating love!

“Everything that happens between us is a result of the potent, sometimes poisonous, love we share. It pushes us to behave erratically and unreasonably— both of us.”

This Man Series is the intense, epic saga about Jesse Ward in his relentless pursuilove!

“You keep my heart beating, baby. And it will only ever beat for you.”

Third book, third strike and I solemnly declare that I am totally addicted to Jesse Ward!

Another crazy, heartbreaking, intense book with a few twists and turns. An unexpected villain, who was working secretly behind scenes, will try to destroy their happiness. Jesse has one last confession to tell Ava.

Jesse and Ava’s story will come full circle and there will an epic conclusion to their story.

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's done a lot of

I’m so glad I reread this series in preparation for the new book that is now out! I can’t wait to see what Jesse and Ava have been up to in the last 16 years!!!

I was surprised at how many details I forgot since I’ve read this four years ago! One thing I do remember is the devotion that Jesse and Ava have for each other! Ava finally gets to prove her love several times in this instalment, and I am glad! It always seemed like Jesse cared more

So the crazy saga of Jesse Ward, aka Lord of the Manor, has finally come to an end ...

What can I say? It was a wild ride but it was a ride worth taking!



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"

John (S'all good, girl!)

Sam & Kate (who NEED their own novella [at least]!!!)

Drew and his ... *ahem* ... male member ...



Things I am happy to leave behind:

Ava ... (or at least the way she is for 2 and 3/4 of this trilogy)



Things I won't miss AT ALL:

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.

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.

They separate ~again~ and that leads to more drama ~again~ but now we have someone who is after Ava.

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!

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.

Re-read April 2018.

It's not until you re-read with a more unbiased mind that you realize just how fucking cray-cray this pair are together. Still loved it though. Still not sure that I want to risk the latest installment as this ended pretty well where it was.
