This Man (This Man, #1) - Jodi Ellen Malpas **Buddy re-read with one lovely pink lady, Deanna ♥

Loving this book so much more this time round (maybe I was sucking a lemon the first time, lol) I had to up my star rating, it was bugging me.

*This is my original review*

This book was ok. I liked the characters but found Ava a little over dramatic. I will read the next book because I want to find out what happens. Loved the character of Jesse!


I completely see why I thought this and only rated it 3 stars the first time....nothing really happens in the first part of the book, it's mainly character building and sex, beautifully written sex, I might add!! Then at around 90% the penny drops with Ava; she is faced with the reality of Jessie's world. At that point the book and the series really takes off for me.....then it's WOW. WOW. WOW.


I love the way the story unfolds and how Ava and Jessie's worlds come together. It's fabulous in its Britishness...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!

The author writes such beautifully descriptive scenes; how they touch, how they feel, she tells the details, however small which makes it delicious and fabulously erotic. Thank you Miss Malpas!!

The additional characters are all really engaging too.

Here are some of my favourite quotes which show the feeling and tone of this wonderful world created by Miss Malpas.......♥

'Boom...boom...boom,' he breathes. 'I can feel it, Ava.'

'This man's an arrogant arse.'
'This man is absolutely stunning.'

'...confident and wealthy, possessive and gentle, controlling and dominant.'

'This man is a magnet.'
'How loud do you think you'll scream when I fcuk you?'

'Ava, you should know that once I've had you, you're mine.'

'I melt all over the vanity unit.'


'I need to have all of you, Ava. Say I can have all of you.'


'Watch your fcuking mouth!'

♥Me too♥

.....later ...ish, baby
