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.

I would have given five stars if it wasn't for the bad job of editing that was done which really detracted from the story for me. Most of the time with indie authors, you expect some editing issues, which there were some in the first two books. When an author signs with a publishing house and release dates get pushed back, you expect that the editing will improve. Unfortunately that was not the case here. I felt the editing was actually the worst in this book out of all three of them and as a result I couldn't give it the five stars the story truly warrants.
...but, gawd I loved this story...this third installation of THIS MAN TRILOGY.
Jesse Ward..confident, arrogant, and sensual, and he knows it. He's fierce in his direct approach and uses all of his seductive traits to get what he wants...He can also be attentive, tender, soft and loving. And he loves Ava O'Shea more than life. He's never been in love before. He's never needed anyone before, and he has an extremely difficult time coping with this new, foreign emotion. But the longer these two main characters are together, the more Jesse learns proper behavior in a relationship. He learns how to give, and not just demand.
Even though Jesse's self-absorbed, arrogant character is intense and his approach is forceful, I've got to admit I love how this Author flawlessly developed his character... Jesse has come such a long way since books 1 & 2.. He's a domineering, controlling arse, but he's also gentle, caring, loving and charming. I liked that he knew what he wanted and desperately goes after it (albeit not always in the wisest way). He's laid claim to Ava O'Shea. No matter what she says, no matter how she feels...she is HIS....End of!
In this story, it was so refreshing to see Jesse being so open and honest. He finally speaks of his damaged past. He confesses how confused he was upon meeting Ava, as the feeling of wanting someone so passionately has never happened to him before. The feeling of NEEDING her was foreign. All of these harbored, confused thoughts and feelings are confessed...and so much more. He faces his vulnerabilities that Ava places on him and he sacrifices so much for her. My heart ached for Jesse. I adored him. He absolutely NEEDS Ava to survive. But he finally wins her...completely. They're determined to be unbreakable.
There were many references to the first and second installment of this trilogy (THIS MAN)This Man (This Man Trilogy). Again, I highly recommend reading This Man (This Man Trilogy) before beginning this final book due to all the many event references from that first two books... just to avoid confusion or being lost.
The only downside (if you wanna call it that) for me was.....for how possessive, controlling and careful Jesse is of Ava in her "condition"....I couldn't figure out WHY he still drives like a psycho maniac with her in the car- - it just seems like he'd be more like a Sunday driver with her in his car.....or WHY he never took her to the Dr. for her monthly baby check-ups.. - - he's the type that would want her having DAILY Dr. visits, lol. I dunno...this just seemed out of character for his domineering, controlling yet loving self.
After finishing this book, I began the first book all over again. <sigh> Just can't let Jesse and Ava go yet...
Book 2. Ava relented and went to see him - resolved her stubbornness and realized there was an emotional bond as well and they started towards his dominance - Jesse claims she has the power BUT NOT REALLY....so the book ends with the proposal. There was never really any substance in this book. Her delving into being dominated by him and another was just not necessary - Jesse should be the one making some kind of changes at this point - he was too far off center.
Book 3 - The wedding, what woman has no input into her own wedding??? Not one bit. And the whole control thing starts all over. GOODNESS, I can't READ this anymore at 7% I BOUGHT IT and can't finish it - WHY go this route with her giving up herself totally???...I have read all kinds of books and none of them have me not liking the vibe so much that I cannot finish the book. How do you take a strong woman and make her soo weak for a man. Ava did not have any issues that his presence should be needed to calm - Jesse was her issue...I feel it's past the stage of alpha males and romance to pure dominance and not in a good way - YESSSSS, dominance is good sometimes, really good.
I am very confused by this author. She TRAMPLED my senses - OFF to recovery......and bring sexy back......Most Marvelous anyone?????

I purchased all three audiobooks in the series and while they were captivating at times I really did not like Jesse, the "alpha male" at all.Read more
