THE LORD IS BACK!

You may scream. There is no shame.


Jodi had a very witty idea and had created an attention-grabbing game with the series’ fans. She made Ava forget.
Ava has a horrible accident and she forgets the last 12-13 years of her life. The most important years of her life. She forgets about Jesse and about their children.
So, while Ava tries to remember and Jesse tries to help her, we basically revisit all the important moments of their life together. All the

‘I once told you that I wanted to look after you for ever.’ I hold her eyes, never wavering. ‘I meant it, baby. For ever isn’t over yet. Never will be, not for us. I love you. You are the best part of me, Ava. The greatest part. That can’t be forgotten.’"

5 BILLION ‘ Ain’t no man on this planet like Jesse Ward’ Stars


Talk about the mother of ALL Jesse’s tramples! The EPIC, unforgettable kind that is!

‘With This Man’ is an heart-wrenching, soul touching, mind-blowingly beautiful, deep and unparalleled emotional rollercoaster that took Jesse and Ava’s already epic love story to a whole new, and unthinkable height of brilliance.

What am I going to do? How do I fix this? The only thing in this world that keeps my heart beating doesn’t know who I am.

“That smell ... It’s my favorite smell.”

For us Jesse fans, there was no better news than hearing there was going to be another Jesse book. To be honest with you, it could be all about Jesse eating his peanut butter and I would lap that puppy up!

Seriously though, what a great concept for another book. The only thing better would have been Jesse losing his memories...OMG, could you imagine all the angst? Be still my heart since that ain't happenin'!

So, as the blurb states, Ava's in an

After all... Jesse and Ava are one of my favorite mf couples and I didn't want their HEA to be fucked with...

I should have had more faith though. That doesn't mean that the author doesn't put them through the wringer...but I should have had more faith in Jesse. He wouldn't ever let anything fuck up his HEA with Ava !!

First off I gotta say I am so glad I reread the series before reading this book! It made it much more enjoyable for the fourth book with my mind refreshed

I actually was surprised at how many memories I had forgotten! I’m going to sleep and will come back to do a review!!

I Love Jesse Ward.......End Of!!!
For lovers of the This Man series, being back with Jesse and Ava is wonderful. The circumstances are a bit daunting. Ava losing 16 years in her mind. Can Jesse bring the memories back, can he make her love him again, will she remember the children?? Their love is unconventional and off the charts crazy at times but it’s them and if she can’t remember then can he make her love him all over again? Ava is his world and without her,

With This Man is book 4 in the This Man series, and is a must read if you have read the previous books. Jesse and Ava are better than ever and we get to see a softer side to the “Lord of the Manor”.

It has been 12 years since Jesse and Ava were married, and life has sure changed for Jesse. He is a father of twins and his love for Ava is as strong as ever. When Ava wakes up after an accident, she thinks she is 28 and has no recollection of Jesse or their children. Jesse is devastated that Ava can’

The Lord is Back !!!. There's a reason he's still the number 1 alpha Hero of all time ! He's passionate, he's drool worthy, he tramples resistance, but his heart is a bottomless pool full of immense love for Ava. Only her. No other woman dead or alive will turn his head or his heart. And his little peanuts- Maddie and Jacob.

4 “nostalgic” stars



First I have to say that I fell head over heels in love with obsessive and possessive Jesse Ward years ago.

Is he egomaniac? Yes!

Is he possessive? Yes but only with Ava and the twins!

Is he unreasonable? When it comes to his loved ones yes!

Would I run away from him in real life? Yes because I would not have Ava’s patience and allow him to control me like that. Only Ava was made for Jesse truly.



Did I love the book? Yes but honestly less than what I expected due to the hype.

With This Man

I was going to keep this review short and simple......something along the lines of 'Best JEM book ever....10 stars' but then decided I had waaaaaaaaaay more to say! But how can my words ever possibly do this book justice?

First things first. Most importantly, this book is NOT a re-telling; it's a complete continuation. It's also a standalone....this story has a conclusion. Set 13 years after the end of This Man Confessed (or 7 years after the epilogue) Jesse is nearing 50 years old

“I meant it, baby. Forever isn’t over yet. Never will be, not for us. I love you. You are the best part of me, Ava. The greatest part. That can’t be forgotten.”

We’re not going to lie, we were very hesitant when we heard Jesse and Ava were getting another book; one in which Ava would suffer a memory loss that meant losing their tumultuous, passionate, intense and obsessive history. Losing their magnificent love story. We’ll admit we went back and forth on whether to read it or not but of course

When I first heard Jodi Ellen Malpas was releasing a fourth book in the This Man series, I was a bit nervous. I was nervous that it wouldn't feel like a cohesive part of the journey between Jesse and Ava Ward, nervous that time might have changed my affection for this couple, nervous that With This Man might feel like an unnecessary addition to a perfectly complete series. Boy, was I wrong. Yes, there should definitely be nerves as you enter this book, but not the kind I anticipated. I should've ...more

Since Jesse and Ava are one of my all time favorite couples, I'm not sure I want to risk reading this. Lucky for Ava, she has three books about her life to jog her memory, bwahhh!!

Listening Length: more than 16 hours! And I enjoyed every second of it. The narrators did a great job, so if you're going to give this one a try, the audiobook is worth a try. :D

My initial review:

‘I once told you that I wanted to look after you for ever.’ I hold her eyes, never wavering. ‘I meant it, baby. For ever isn’t over yet. Never will be, not for us. I love you. You are the best part of me, Ava. The greatest part. That can’t be forgotten.’"

I was excited to start With This Man as this series was one of my favourites I read in my early days (over five years ago, how scary) when I got hooked on reading after Fifty Shades.


As I started this and getting to know Jesse and Ava again I was loving the story and thinking 5* but after reading for a few days and reaching 60ish% I was fed up with ALL THE SEX to the point I was saying "oh my god not again" and Jesse was getting on my nerves with his possessiveness and being

♡ Jeri's Book Attic ♡ the Romance Bibiliophile ♡




Rewriting an already written romance novel from a different kind of perspective is one thing. But leave it to Jodi Ellen Malpas to do something totally different with that concept.


“With this Man” follows the “This Man” series and actually, when you look at it closely (and believe me I DID) it is the Love story of Ava and Jesse told from a different perspective. Not like in other novels when simply the other lead retells the already existing story from his PoV. No … something that simple would
