With the date for there nuptials decided it's just a matter of time before Jennifer walks down the Isle. Blake's family mostly his mother decides to make a spectacle of Jennifer's big day and sadly jen's idea of having a simple wedding in her parents backyard is thrown in the hatchet.

I loved the first three books in this series. This book I just wanted to slap the hell out of everyone! Jen for not sticking up for herself and her wants, Blake for not standing up to his mother and for not dealing with Kat. The mother needed a slap, the wedding planner needed a slap, they all needed a slap!! Because I loved the first three books so much I muddled through this book and will of course read the fi

The That Man Series just keeps getting better and better, funnier and sexier. Nelle has really found herself as an author at the top of her game with this humorous erotic romance.

Blake is just wonderful. Lovable, funny, and sometimes, downright outrageous. In this book we are introduced to some hilarious characters; namely the wedding planners, and we find out more about Blake's very high maintenance mother. Everyone knows how stressful weddings can be, and Nelle nails it in That Man 4. Poor Jen

I was excited to read this book after the first three books. I absolutely could not stand anyone that was involved with the wedding planning. She needs to just move on and understand that he is not going to ever marry her daughter. Ugh I could not get over how rude and bossy they were. I did like the trust that we see more and more between Blake and Jennifer. My biggest issue with this book is that I feel as though they could have just had one larger book for the wedding story instead of splitti ...more

It's been a while since I read the initial That Man trilogy, but I remembered them being humorous and steamy, two of my hot buttons. So it was great to pick up book four and dive straight back into Blake Burns and Jennifer McCoy's story. Now a couple, they have a wedding to plan, but when Blake's mother and wedding planner take over, it starts snowballing into something so far from Jen's dream. Throw in crazy Kitty Kat, Blake's obsessed ex-girlfriend, and you just know she's going to shake thing ...more
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I have been a fan of this series from the first book and this installment in the series is just as well-written as the first three. There are a few laugh out loud moments, but for the most part, this book is more emotional. Not in a bad way, but it's easy to feel the apprehension and anxiety that Jennifer is experiencing, both with the success of the television show for the network, in addition to the wedding planning, that apparently she has no say

Man is one of the best series I have read in a long time. Nelle L'Amour is outstanding with the twists and turns and the storyline is so unpredictable which is what I love most. That Man 4 was so good I could not put it down till I was done, and cannot wait to That Man 5. I guarantee you will love it.. I don't write spoilers and you can find out basically what the story is about by clicking on the book, but what I love is That Man's gramma. She reminds me of myself lol,,,, Y

Blake and Jen have set a date for the wedding, but what they would like to be an intimate wedding is quickly taken out of their hands by Blake's mother and handed off to a wedding planner who is ready to make this the event of the century. The daughter of the wedding planner who is "assisting" with the event is a delusional ex of Blake's who is trying desperately to ruin their relationship and get Blake back.

This book was a pleasant surprise as I thought the series was over. I'm glad to be able

Everything is finally lining up for Jennifer; she has that man, a great job, and a wedding on its way. When they finally pick a date everything begins crashing down. The wedding planner is a nightmare and the wedding planners daughter is one of Blakes ex flings. She can't help the doubt that fills her mind, especially when she barely had time to talk to Blake.

Blake has everything he never knew he wanted and he is never letting it go. He needs Jennifer and wants her with him always, but Kat wants

Thank you Nelle for the ARC!
What can I say, without spoiling the read for the others.
The EPIC wedding of century. What is Blake really hiding? What will be Jen's reaction be when Blake really tells her? Will they get married on December 20, with all these curve balls getting in the way. Let me begin with this, when I got the ARC yesterday, I couldn't begin reading until after work 5pm. I couldn't put it down. Sadly to say no work got done today because I HAD to continue reading. I've waited for

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

I loved the first three books and gave them all rave reviews - but somehow this didn't quite hit the mark. I still want to know what happens next, without a doubt, but the writing just wasn't as smooth. After everything they had been through, it seemed like Blake regressed about 10 years, and had lost his backbone. Jen's chatter was somehow less slick. Hopefully the final book will bring it all back together again.

so Kitty Kat and DickWick come back... and I still totally hate them.. this is the wedding planning for the wedding of the century ... and I am not that into it. Don't get me wrong the writing is fine but again I feel like its being forced into the second book. We get a little cliffhanger at the end which is why I own book 5 already :P

good story; the way the last few pages were like the author just threw it in there to make it more suspenseful for the reader but, yeah it was like she was so into the story then remembered it was supposed to end shortly, so she axed it and put in a "suspenseful" ending; but good story all in all though, it again made my stomach roll.

Readers have definitely heard about bridezilla, but what do you call an over the top future mother-in-law and an outlandish set of wedding planners who seem to have ulterior motives besides making Blake and Jen’s wedding the event of the year? I call it a recipe for disaster but also a great way to see how Blake and Jen handle the pressure of making their hectic lives work amidst the glitz and make believe of Hollywood where no one is truly who they seem to be and secrets and hidden truths have ...more

Blake Burns how I’ve missed your witty charm and overpowering arrogance. I didn’teven know how much until I read That Man 4. Blake and Jennifer serve a whirlwind of emotion in this installment. I was happy to get to spend time with some of the other characters I fell in love with in the previous books. Blake’s sex appeal is off the charts in this one, and all because of Jennifer. These two make being in love easy, but the hurdles they have to cross are a plenty. Nelle certainly gives you a story ...more

This is a new author to me and let mete tell you, I will be reading more books by her in the future! I am really digging serial series right now. Something about how they build up suspense to an epic finale gets my blood pumping. And this series fit that bill.

This is the fourth book in a brand new erotic series that is sure to light a fire. This book was sweet, sexy, suspenseful, and highly entertaining. The banter was funny! The chemistry was sizzling. This book pulled all emotions out

Yep! THAT MAN!!! Blake is going to be my perdition. But isn't he gorgeous? And, yes, he knows he can charm the pants off any woman. It is a good thing that Jennifer loves him so dearly. But his past keeps raising its ugly head and he has not come clean, so to speak, with Jennifer. His ex is always sticking herself in the middle, and I wish Jennifer were not such a lady would just deck her once and for all.

This wedding is doomed! Jewish Mom taking over all preparations for her ONLY

4 out of 5 stars

This story is the continuation of Blake and Jennifer's story. Now if you haven't read this series don't read this review because it will contain a spoiler or not. So I suggest that you read up on the first 3 books. This story is also not for those who are more conservative as far as reading about sex. I on the other hand don't mind it one bit lol.

I love Nelle and her style of writing (yes she's an amazing writer), I love the bluntness of it. She uses the word pussy and cock! And as a woman I love reading that rawness! But most importantly she also share the work of other authors in her books (I salute you always)

When the series ‘ended’ with That Man 3, like many other readers I was sobbing into my glass at not reading about Blake, Mr Burns, and their Tiger (if you’ve read the series you’ll understand the reference to a certain part of Blake’s anatomy). So like many other readers I was cracking open a bottle when the news came that not only was there going to be a That Man 4 but also a That Man 5 (due in December). We were going to be with them on their journey after the proposal to

I have no idea where to start with this so be warned, I may ramble!

We see more of Blake's grandma in this part & I have to say I LOVE THAT WOMAN!!! She is HILARIOUS! I hope I have even half her spit & fire in my old age as she has. She takes Jen under her wing & teaches her some Jewish traditions.

Jen has shown herself to be so much stronger than anyone would have expected of the shy & quiet girl we first met. She has worked wonders at MY SIN TV part of the network Blake runs SIN TV all her ideas
