Book: This Man
Series: This Man #1
Author: Jodi Ellen Malpas
This Man is the first in Jodi Ellen Malpas's Erotica romance trilogy. I have to start with saying this series is highly addictive. I couldn't stop reading it. After reading books by EL James and Sylvia Day this year I wanted another fix of a troubled hot man with insecurities and issues but who look's strong and together on the outside and a strong woman with a lot of hot sex and I found that in This Man.
This Man involves Ava a young successful interior designer who is called to the manor to do some work for as she thinks an old stuffy pipe smoking gentleman but that isn't who she meets. She meets the owner steaming hot and sexy Jesse and the sexual tension that radiates from both of them is off the scale but Ava is having none of it. She just came out of a terrible relationship and doesn't have time for men...or does she?
This Man has so many twists and turns I swear I couldn't keep up. The reveal of things had me gobsmacked, the sex had me blushing and Jessie had me wanting to hit him one minute and had my pulse pounding the next.
Ava was a little whiney but she did start to grow toward the end, Jessie was a complex, hot interesting man who was a perfect blend of Christian from 50 Shades of Grey and Gideon from the Cross fire Series by Sylvia Day. Ava's friend gave the intense story a bit of humorous relief as well as Ava's own crazy antics.
Overall This Man had me turning the pages and being invested in the story so much I went and ordered the rest of the trilogy straight away. This is perfect for fans of Erotica in general and anyone who likes EL James and Sylvia Day.
