5+ StarsTHE STUNNING CONCLUSION TO THE THIS MAN TRILOGY!
The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse-and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is. He knows too well how to take her to a place beyond ecstasy . . . but will he also drive her to the brink of despair? It's time for this man to confess.
Selena's Thoughts: Wow, what can I say? I don't think I can even express how I feel about this book with out reliving the full series so bare with me.....
When I read book one I was left so devastated at the end that I literally could not cope. I would find myself thinking about it while I doing mundane things like making dinner or folding laundry. I would daydream about Jesse while I was reading other books. I was a hopeless wreck. And needless to say 100% smitten. Cut to me cramming This Man down everyone's throat. I would have threatened bodily harm if I could have gotten people to read that way. I was hungover from book one all the way until book two.
When I started reading book two all the feelings I was left with at the end of the first book were quickly brought to the surface. My love for Jesse Ward was rekindled into a raging inferno. Suddenly my Mom and Sister (which had read This Man as well) decided that they wanted to love Jesse too. Yes, this should make me happy. I should be over-joyed that other people were reading and loving as much as I did. BUT, I am not wired that way. I have been trampling ever since. THIS MAN IS MINE PEOPLE! You may admire him, you may appreciate his godliness, you may oogle him at you own peril. You have been WARNED. Who knew that a book character could incite so much real life territorial instincts??? When I finished with Beneath This Man I was in a good place. It ended so sweetly that I could have almost been satisfied.... almost. I wanted more, I will always want more Jesse. I waited patiently for This Man Confessed to release. Patiently? Really? I was insane with want, I needed this book like oxygen, I stalked Jodi's FB page. And then the day came This Man Confessed was delivered to my kindle.
I am trying so hard how to talk about TMC without giving to much away. I hate spoilers. HATE THEM. And this was a book that every single minute was something important.
First, Ava _____ and then Jesse ____ and the I GASPED, and then I said OH NO SHE DIDN'T and then I was like AAAAAAHHHHHHH I cant handle the truth!!!!
^_^ But seriously, as much as I hate that this series had to end, I am more in love now that I was in the beginning. I will be in book hangover mode for quite sometime, but I will always be able to go back and do it all over again..... Now to wait for paperback release in 2014, let the countdown begin!!!!
Happy Reading!! :)
