About the Author

Jodi Ellen Malpas was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, UK, where she lives with her family. Working for the family construction business fulltime and with the prospect of taking it over once her father retired, she tried to ignore the lingering idea of writing a novel until it became impossible. She finally found the time and courage to release her creative streak and in October 2012 self-published This Man as an e-book. She took a chance on a story with some intense characters, notably Mr. Jesse Ward, the Lord of the Manor, and sparked incredible reactions from women all over the world. Two months later, Jodi made the decision to give up her day job to concentrate on her new and very unexpected career in writing.

Wow, this was bad. I enjoy the whole male dominance, caveman attitude of protecting and possessing a woman as much as the next person (50 Shades), but this was horrifying! This Jesse guy isn't sexy or attractive in any sort of way. He was just a plain old psycho stalker! There was no conflicting feeling...no confusion on his part for why is suddenly wants Ava. It's just BAM! I want to have sex all the time and I want you. There wasn't a whole lot of dialogue between the two other than Jesse telling Ava what to wear, what to drink, what she can't say (his weird obsession with her cursing is just odd). I mean, he cut up her dress with scissors because it was too short! Her birth control keeps going missing suggesting that Jesse is trying to trick her into pregnancy. He finally lets her have a night off from his psycho-ness, but with clear instructions NOT to drink or wear a too short dress and what happens? He has someone spying on her and when she misbehaves Jesse comes in and drags her back home! Ava was on the brink of standing up for herself so many times and I wanted her to tell him to F-off and get a restraining order so many times, but as soon as she showed signs of leaving or getting a sense of respect for herself, he would screw her and all would be forgotten and she loved him. Seriously?? He punched his glass out on his car when she tried to end it! That is not the sign of a stable man. Spoiler~the real kicker is at the end when she finds out about his weird sex house "business" she finally grows a pair and leaves him. That's when he punches his car window out and completely loses it. She actually goes to him to forgive him (I know!!) and he holds up his hand and says "you caused this by leaving me". He tells her he fell off the wagon and it's her fault for leaving.Read more ›

I don't think I've ever written a bad review about a book before. I am including a few minor spoilers so I can be as specific as possible.

I'm honestly confused at the volume of positive reviews. This book seemed like the introduction to a domestic violence series, and I can only assume book 2 will feature Ava being slapped around a bit. I don't want to be pigeonholed as someone who hates Alpha-male Romance stories, in fact those are typically my favorites. But this crossed so many lines I was physically uncomfortable from around 50 pages in to the very end. The male lead (Jesse) makes Christian Grey look like an easygoing, unattached goofball .

First off Jesse is a domineering, obsessive control freak. And there are really no other positives; except maybe his wealth and good looks. Oh and the "instant attraction" they both felt. He takes zero consideration for Ava's feelings or wants, she repeatedly tells him "NO" while fooling around (which he ignores), and he is a total and complete stalker. And trust me, none of this is in "a good way". He even admits somewhere near the end that he doesn't care about her feelings at all his only priority is the obsession he has with her.

She very clearly says she isn't interested in a relationship or sex, and it doesn't stop him at all. And I don't care that her inner dialog was "conflicted" and she was too confused or nervous to voice her "real" feelings. If a guy doesn't at least slow his roll at this point and reevaluate the situation; I'm concerned.

I'm willing to accept a few quirks in characters; things they are knowingly weird about. Like the cursing thing. Jesse freaks out whenever Ava curses, but really for no real reason and for no real result. She keeps doing it, and he keeps yelling at her.

I am honestly shocked at the high review for this book. I'm mad that I paid for it. I read a LOT and love this genre. But these characters where just awful. Jessie is abusive, controlling and manipulative. You know basically nothing about him. He takes what he wants, when he wants it with bascially no regard to what Ava wants or feels. I couldn't understand why he possibly thinks he loves her. He won't even tell her something as basic as his age. Seriously, all they do is fight and have sex. And they just met! Ava is the weakest female character I have ever read about. She is a doormat who lets this man walk all over her. Why? Oh because he is good in bed. Is that seriously the only thing that would matter to a women? She is suppose to be a smart, successful women but none of that comes across other than people stating it. She basically puts all her other jobs on hold to have sex with Jesse. And whenver she gets mad about something all he had to do is give her a "reminder" screw and she doesn't care anymore. At one point she is telling him to not touch her and stay away from her, he of course doesn't listen and instead sticks his hand down her pants, even while she continues to tell him to stop touching her. But hey, then he just keeps having his way with her so she decides thats ok. That is NOT ok. That is assult! She just got out of a four year relationship with another man that constantly cheated on her and she isn't even mad about it. Jesse never once shows any real love for her and I can't imagine why she thinks she would be in love with him. I'm saddened that so many people seem to think this is a good relationship. I couldn't even begin to think of letting someone treat me so poorly. He controls what she says, who she can go out with, what she can wear.Read more ›
