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.Read more ›
Even though This Man is your typical contemporary erotic romance novel (one of the many knockoff-softcore-housewife-porns following Fifty Shades) where we are supposed to fall in love with the flawed hero - it is far from a romance novel. This is a straight up example of a very abusive relationship unfolding right before the reader's eyes, and I'm shocked that anyone would find the relationship between these two people appropriate by any means. Jesse, the "flawed hero," is instantly sold to us as an aggressive, self-centered bastard who constantly harrasses, pressures and abuses his love interest, Ava, by stalking her; yelling at her, telling her what she can and cannot do; and doing everything possible to make her life miserable.Read more ›
