Title: This Man
Series: This Man, #1
Author: Jodi Ellen Malpas
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has an appointment for a first consultation at The Manor with the owner, Mr Jesse Ward. She is expecting nothing more than an overweight, cravat wearing, well-to-do countryman, and on arrival, nothing would suggest otherwise. How wrong could she be? This Man is devastatingly handsome, charming and confident. He is also a conceited, hedonistic playboy, who knows no boundaries. Ava desperately does not want to be attracted to him, but she can’t control the overwhelming affect he has on her. Every instinct is telling her to run, so she does, but Jesse Ward is not so willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her. She knows she is heading for heartbreak, but how can she run when he won’t let her?

This Man is about a women named Ava who does design for a living. She's going to a place called The Manor to talk to a client about redecorating. But when she gets there she is in for a major surprise. 
The "Lord" of The Manor is the most handsome man she has ever seen. She knows instantly that she can not work for him because of her attraction. 

But what the "Lord" wants the "Lord" gets. He goes after Ava. And they start a relationship. I really liked Jesse, The Lord, but sometimes I thought he was a little bit crazy, and not the good kind of crazy. 
And Ava got on my nerves through the whole freaking book. Seriously at the end was the worst, she's suppose to love him yet she leaves him hanging. I thought that was a load of crap. 

Overall the book was okay. I think it was only okay, because I just didn't like Ava. I hated how she pretty much whined through most of the book. Then when she should have shown Jesse that she really loved him she bails. I do look forward to reading the next book though.
