Oh I am sooo disappointed.
This started out with such great potential.....The sex was hot, the power exchange seemed eminent...and then....splat. Before I could saw "Hold the fish & chips!!" I was spiraling into the depths of a grown woman's whiney mostly internal dialogue and a man's brooding non-communicative obsessive love that we generally only see in books featuring sparkly vampires.
By the second half of the book I was so tired of listening to the indecision that I caught myself just tuning the book out......I would snap back into it with a "OOOHHHH that's hot" and within minutes I was trying to figure out what happened in the last 5 minutes of Supernatural that my DVR cut off.
Maybe I liked it, maybe I didn't....maybe I need it and that's really what the problem is...I'm putting it down, no I'm finishing it right now no, I'm throwing it out...no.... Ya, you get the idea.

Ava, an interior decorator, is hired to decorate the new rooms built during at expansion project at The Manor. During her consultation for the project, she meets the owner Jesse Ward. As soon as they lay eyes on each other, Jesse decides that he must have Ava for his own, Ava apparently is doing her best to fight the attraction. The story of Ava & Jesse basically consists of them getting together, then they have some huge argument (mostly whenever Ava doesn't follow instructions exactly the way Jesse wanted her to), she tries to run away from him, he chases after her (resulting in a lot of door banging and an endless amount of phone text/calls), they get back together. And the cycle repeats itself... over and over and over! I realize its all a bit predictable and admittedly, at times I thought it was just that until the last 25% of the story changes my opinion. Things started to get much more interesting and there were some surprising revelations that make me anxious to find out how the story will continue. So be prepared for very frustrating confrontations and for the intensity that is Jesse Ward... Overall, I ended up really enjoying This Man regardless of the cliffhanger. I definitely will continue with the second part of this series Beneath This Man as soon as Audible releases it.
