    Warning spoilers abound.Apparently, I m a glutton for punishment Me and this book trilogy are not friends Not at all It s like a train wreck I don t want to look, but can t stop myself.Only five short days have passed since Ava left Jesse, and her entire world has ended She s depressed and having a meltdown, reminiscing about her epic love you know, her month long relationship with Jesse Of course, this being only the second book, it stands to reason that their separation won t last long, Warning spoilers abound.Apparently, I m a glutton for punishment Me and this book trilogy are not friends Not at all It s like a train wreck I don t want to look, but can t stop myself.Only five short days have passed since Ava left Jesse, and her entire world has ended She s depressed and having a meltdown, reminiscing about her epic love you know, her month long relationship with Jesse Of course, this being only the second book, it stands to reason that their separation won t last long, and, just like that, they re back together Shocked Yeah, neither am I.Not much has changed Jesse is still a domineering, overly possessive, control freak times infinity He s a stage five clinger He continually wants all of Ava s time and attention, wanting her to spend every second with him all day, every day She s a possession, a toy that he refuses to share Nothing about this behavior is sexy It s scary Jesse is a psychoWatch your fucking mouth he yells. Pot, meet kettle Kettle, meet pot Jesse treats Ava as if she were a misbehaving child Ava is a grown woman She doesn t need this man child correcting her language As usual, however, Jesse has absolutely no regard for Ava s feelings He does want he wants, when he wants On the other hand, Ava has the backbone of a spineless chicken, so it s no wonder Jesse tramples all over her.Oh, and don t worry Jesse s not an alcoholic.Except that he is.Alcoholism, or any addiction, really, is a life long recovery, and something a person has to work hard at every day It doesn t just simply go away on its own The narrative would have readers believe that Jesse doesn t need alcohol, ignoring the fact that it was made clear, onthan one occasion, that he can t stop once he starts That s a problem, one made evenapparent when he drinks himself into a coma.Unfortunately, everyone in this book is in denial.1He s not an alcoholic in the classic sense of the word He s not obsessed with alcohol, Ava He drank to lighten his foul mood, to fill a gap Once he starts, he can t stop2I m not a raving alcoholic, Ava I admit I get carried away once I do have a drink and I find it hard to stop, but I can take it or leave it I was in a bad place after you left me I just wanted to numb the pain3I am not a fucking alcoholic If I drink now, it will be because you make me crazy mad He shouts the last bit in my face. And then, of course, Ava puts the blame on herself.1I glance at the bottle and notice it s sealed and full, but it s still there and something made him put it there me I m the reason for his screwed up mind, his ridiculously ambitious objectives and his meltdowns This is my entire fault I ve made him into a neurotic control freak. 2How can you need me if I make you do this to yourself I ask tiredly You reself destructible now than you were before me I ve made you need alcohol, not want it I ve made you into an unreasonable, crazy man, and I m certainly not stable any Don t you see what we re doing to each other3I blank my mind of everything except that, the music fades and I brace myself for my own punishment my punishment for reducing Jesse to a fraught mess of a man, for making him need alcohol, not just want it, for turning him into an uptight, neurotic freak for making him do this to himself. That last quote was from a scene that made me rage In an idiotic bid to get Jesse see her point of view, Ava has some random man at the Manor whip her back raw you know, the same way that Jesse had Sarah whip his Why would he go to Sarah with such a request, you might ask The answer is simple to stop himself from drinking But, wait, he doesn t have a problem, rememberNothing will ever hurt me as much as seeing you doing that to yourself That will kill me, nothing else If you punish yourself again, then I will tooThese two idiots deserve each other Truly As if we didn t already know, Jesse is secretly trying to knock Ava up against her wishes, no less to trap her into staying with him He makes her tell him repeatedly that she won t leave him, not that he d ever let her, but her word isn t assurance enough for him Because Jesse is an insecure lunatic, his solution is to bring a baby into their dysfunctional and extremely unhealthy relationship Brining a baby into an environment like that is outrageous Even after Ava finally puts the pieces together, she lets it slide, just like everything else I didn t think it was possible, but I stand corrected Ava is an even bigger pushover than she was in the last book Arguing with Jesse is a complete waste of time She gives in as soon as he gets his hands on her Jesse is a bully and tramples all over her She knows this, and still, unbelievably, allows it to happen I just can t with her She s a moron Jesse is also guilty of the following, none of which are even remotely okay hiding Ava s birth control pills, using sex as a weapon to get what he wants, and invading and taking control of Ava s personal and professional life This doesn t even begin to cover all the lying and manipulation, both in and out of the bedroom Oh, and we can add cheating to the list, as well.And then there s Kate Who needs enemies when you have a friend like her I m sorry, but she s a terrible friend She s secretive, willing to hide things from her so called best friend on Jesse s behalf information that pertains to Jesse and his private life not because she knows that Jesse is a good guy, but because he bought her a new work van to keep her quiet about what she knows about the kind of business he operates I wans t a fan of the writing It was pedestrian and bland The book could also use a good editor Almost all the dialogue tags were punctuated incorrectly, with periods at the end of the dialogue where commas should ve been used instead I m of the opinion that if one is going to put their book out on the market for people to buy, then it should be properly edited His eyes turn black Don t say things like that, AvaWhen did this turn into a paranormal romance Human eyes do not turn black when one is angry Just saying.Sex, fighting, andsex That s about all this book had to offer We did eventually learn how old Jesse was Not that it mattered, because he sure as hell didn t act his age He was prone to acting like an adolescent We also learned some things about his past sexual encountersDrink and sex go hand in hand for meSo, as you can see, alcohol wasn t his only problem As far as any real plot progression went, that was the extent of it In between the excessive amount of sex scenes, there wasn t much of a story at all

Wow Before you read my review, please just open Massive Attack s Angel in a new window and play it in the background as you read This song features frequently during the book and is Jesse s song for Ava Play it LOUD This has to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 After the last desperate and devastating few chapters of This Man, we ve all been waiting with bated breath forJesse Ava The second book of a trilogy is traditionally the weakest, it s neither a beginning or an end and can often be just filler but that is NOT the case here This book just blew me away, I DEVOURED it and I am now bereft that it is over and can t wait for the third book to be able to finally conclude this intense and overwhelming romance.We left Jesse Ava in the depths of despair at the end of This Man Both of them are broken by what has happened and their relationship is seemingly in ruins They re both in pieces and wrecked and, Jesse especially, hell bent on self destruction This was done so very well their broken hearts and intense overwhelming sadness leap vividly to life right off the page and their despair is palpable They re just lost without each other.As they move beyond these events and attempt to get their relationship back on track I couldn t help feel that their connection was one of the most intense and most emotional that I think I ve ever read in romantic fiction I so wanted them to sort out their differences, to be open and honest with each other and to find that Happy Ever After that s constantly drifting ever so slightly out of reach I read with a big grin, loving every minute that they were together and then again always with that ever present worry that Jodi Ellen Malpas was going to rip the rug out from under us with some unforeseen complication and plummet them back down into the darkness It s a story of unbelievably wonderful highs followed by despondent lows Jesse is back in all his arrogant, alpha, dominant controlling glory with sleepy sex, sense fucks, reminder fucks and now even retribution fucks The steam factor in this book is off the charts HAWT The normally strong dominant playboy has been reduced to a frightened desperate soul by the intensity and depth of his feelings for Ava He s lived a hedonistic lifestyle until the moment he met her, he s never cared for the multitude of women that he s had physical relationships with and was fairly self destructive not caring whether he lived or died Now Ava has burst onto his horizon and he can hardly see straight, he loves her so much He s terrified that he s going to lose her, that someone will take her from him and she brings out all his extremely over protective instincts He s a troublesome, neurotic rogue and there were times that I wanted to scream at him, bang his head against a brick wall to knock some sense into him he made me crazy Ava too I was just rooting for them to find a happy balance an equilibrium that would ultimately ease their troubled souls but they re so deeply connected to one another, body and soul, they have the power to absolutely destroy one other Ava continues to be a wonderful heroine that you can truly believe in She s as overwhelmed as Jesse by her feelings and is completely bowled over by him She s a feisty soul and despite Jesse s dominant presence manages to win some of their battles She s strong and independent and doesn t take well to Jesse trying to micro manage her life to the nth degree and it makes for a tortuous path as they argue and dispute every little aspect of their life together only to make up with seriously hot off the charts steamy bedroom action Ava feels a connection to Jesse that she has never felt with anyone ever before and he makes her ecstatically happy and allows her to feel safe at the same time as driving her totally barking mad Beneath This Man is a beautiful, captivating, conflicting, tortuous romance that had me completely consumed by their story I was totally absorbed by the words on the page, everything else just faded into the background as I lost myself absolutely in their fictional world, fallingandin love with Jesse with every chapter There s just something so open and engaging about what is passing between them It s also funny as we get to see the little quirks of character from This Man building and growing giving you the reader a feeling that you re getting to know this central duo so very well They feel like friends There s also a great host of secondary characters with poor Clive, the much abused concierge at Lusso, John an absolute pillar of strength at The Manor and Kate and Sam and all of Ava s riotous friends and colleagues As I was lucky enough to be one of the earliest to read this, I got asked over and over the same questions how old is Jesse, how did he get that scar, did he sleep with Sarah, andAll I can say is you re just going to have to read the book I know you re all desperate to know but you don t really want me to tell you You ll want to experience it for yourself just the way the author intended.So, this was my first 5 star read of 2013 and an absolutely stunning continuation of the This Man trilogy and I can t wait to get my hands on book 3 If you liked This Man, you re going to absolutely love Beneath This Man If you enjoy your romance on the angsty, emotional and intense side then this book is most definitely for you 5 stars

    I don t know if there was a deep hidden message in this book, you know, some kind of deep meaning that I didn t get But if there were, I could only come to the conclusion that my brain isn t developed enough to comprehend the value of it.Let me tell you what I do know I now know why the author chose the name Beneath this man, and it s because this story is about a man walking all over a girl s life, self esteem and dignity and ripping every ounce of rational thought out of her head and I do I don t know if there was a deep hidden message in this book, you know, some kind of deep meaning that I didn t get But if there were, I could only come to the conclusion that my brain isn t developed enough to comprehend the value of it.Let me tell you what I do know I now know why the author chose the name Beneath this man, and it s because this story is about a man walking all over a girl s life, self esteem and dignity and ripping every ounce of rational thought out of her head and I don t mean it in the good way This woman has literally put her lifebeneathher feelings for this man, a man that deserves nothing else but to be left to rot in a pile of flesh eating bugs.Even though this book is completely plotless and filled with crappy dialogues, there is a great variety when it comes to humiliation and abuse At the very beginning of the series we have this girl who is portrayed to be relatively normal you know, she is young, she is fairly successful in what she does Yes, she is out of a bad relationship, but haven t we all been like that at some point Then this guy comes along and smashes everything for her He literally takes her life away from her by dickmatizing her he makes her a slave to the cock, girls, and you know it.But it gets even better in Beneath this man He is literally telling her how she is supposed to live her life He wants her around him all the time, so that he can fucking control every damn second of her life And if he were reading this, he would simply sayWatch your fucking mouth Now, probably every girl on this planet loves the alpha male and or the bad boy Women just feel the need to be protected, you know it s pretty natural and I accept it What I cannot accept, however, is how on earth is it possible for women to like this book altogether This is a book about a woman being ordered around, told and forced what to do, not about a woman who is loved And if you still think that you are about to read a love story, you should simply get it out of your heads This is not love this is all about a girl becoming obsessed with a guy s dick And even though a lot of Jesse s actions are explained through his supposed love to Ava, I cannot feel the love in the air What I feel is a woman s desperation to be with a person who is manipulating her with sex To be honest, I was very happy when she somehow grasped it at one point, but unfortunately this insight didn t last long I think that I could best describe this book by using the author s own wordsMy sanity is certainly questionable, but I m sane enough to admit that I was a normal, sound minded girl I definitely don t qualify for that any To sum it up no self respecting woman that is sane, not under chemically induced coma or drugged should like this book Because liking this book automatically means that you would enjoy going through all of the shit described in this book Oh yeah, and then rate it 5 stars

He disregards my opinions and wishes at every turn, with his neurotic, challenging ways, and now I fear I m becoming neurotic and challenging as well He brings out the worst in me, and I know damn well I bring out the worst in him And just as fast as I canforget those thoughtsratherI just love sex with Jesse..so think I will just give in to him.Pleeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzz hell, this woman, Ava, drove me absolutely bonkers I wanted to jump into the book and give her a piece of my mind..like something like this I like well written sex scenes that form part of the story..but how much is enough sex scenes Well, Mr Ward Given how much sex we have, I d say you re the majority shareholder of power in this relationship And for heaven s sake..what about carpet burn.but no, this does not happen in fiction darlings..and no, Jesse Ward does not need Viagra for those hundreds and hundreds andhundreds of sex times with sweet little Ava This book could have been cut in half..there was so much repetition that I found myself skimming a lot of pages.Truthfully..I m become a bit enthusiastic about this series, so I probably will read book 3much to my dismay

    Warning spoilers abound.Apparently, I m a glutton for punishment Me and this book trilogy are not friends Not at all It s like a train wreck I don t want to look, but can t stop myself.Only five short days have passed since Ava left Jesse, and her entire world has ended She s depressed and having a meltdown, reminiscing about her epic love you know, her month long relationship with Jesse Of course, this being only the second book, it stands to reason that their separation won t last long, Warning spoilers abound.Apparently, I m a glutton for punishment Me and this book trilogy are not friends Not at all It s like a train wreck I don t want to look, but can t stop myself.Only five short days have passed since Ava left Jesse, and her entire world has ended She s depressed and having a meltdown, reminiscing about her epic love you know, her month long relationship with Jesse Of course, this being only the second book, it stands to reason that their separation won t last long, and, just like that, they re back together Shocked Yeah, neither am I.Not much has changed Jesse is still a domineering, overly possessive, control freak times infinity He s a stage five clinger He continually wants all of Ava s time and attention, wanting her to spend every second with him all day, every day She s a possession, a toy that he refuses to share Nothing about this behavior is sexy It s scary Jesse is a psychoWatch your fucking mouth he yells. Pot, meet kettle Kettle, meet pot Jesse treats Ava as if she were a misbehaving child Ava is a grown woman She doesn t need this man child correcting her language As usual, however, Jesse has absolutely no regard for Ava s feelings He does want he wants, when he wants On the other hand, Ava has the backbone of a spineless chicken, so it s no wonder Jesse tramples all over her.Oh, and don t worry Jesse s not an alcoholic.Except that he is.Alcoholism, or any addiction, really, is a life long recovery, and something a person has to work hard at every day It doesn t just simply go away on its own The narrative would have readers believe that Jesse doesn t need alcohol, ignoring the fact that it was made clear, onthan one occasion, that he can t stop once he starts That s a problem, one made evenapparent when he drinks himself into a coma.Unfortunately, everyone in this book is in denial.1He s not an alcoholic in the classic sense of the word He s not obsessed with alcohol, Ava He drank to lighten his foul mood, to fill a gap Once he starts, he can t stop2I m not a raving alcoholic, Ava I admit I get carried away once I do have a drink and I find it hard to stop, but I can take it or leave it I was in a bad place after you left me I just wanted to numb the pain3I am not a fucking alcoholic If I drink now, it will be because you make me crazy mad He shouts the last bit in my face. And then, of course, Ava puts the blame on herself.1I glance at the bottle and notice it s sealed and full, but it s still there and something made him put it there me I m the reason for his screwed up mind, his ridiculously ambitious objectives and his meltdowns This is my entire fault I ve made him into a neurotic control freak. 2How can you need me if I make you do this to yourself I ask tiredly You reself destructible now than you were before me I ve made you need alcohol, not want it I ve made you into an unreasonable, crazy man, and I m certainly not stable any Don t you see what we re doing to each other3I blank my mind of everything except that, the music fades and I brace myself for my own punishment my punishment for reducing Jesse to a fraught mess of a man, for making him need alcohol, not just want it, for turning him into an uptight, neurotic freak for making him do this to himself. That last quote was from a scene that made me rage In an idiotic bid to get Jesse see her point of view, Ava has some random man at the Manor whip her back raw you know, the same way that Jesse had Sarah whip his Why would he go to Sarah with such a request, you might ask The answer is simple to stop himself from drinking But, wait, he doesn t have a problem, rememberNothing will ever hurt me as much as seeing you doing that to yourself That will kill me, nothing else If you punish yourself again, then I will tooThese two idiots deserve each other Truly As if we didn t already know, Jesse is secretly trying to knock Ava up against her wishes, no less to trap her into staying with him He makes her tell him repeatedly that she won t leave him, not that he d ever let her, but her word isn t assurance enough for him Because Jesse is an insecure lunatic, his solution is to bring a baby into their dysfunctional and extremely unhealthy relationship Brining a baby into an environment like that is outrageous Even after Ava finally puts the pieces together, she lets it slide, just like everything else I didn t think it was possible, but I stand corrected Ava is an even bigger pushover than she was in the last book Arguing with Jesse is a complete waste of time She gives in as soon as he gets his hands on her Jesse is a bully and tramples all over her She knows this, and still, unbelievably, allows it to happen I just can t with her She s a moron Jesse is also guilty of the following, none of which are even remotely okay hiding Ava s birth control pills, using sex as a weapon to get what he wants, and invading and taking control of Ava s personal and professional life This doesn t even begin to cover all the lying and manipulation, both in and out of the bedroom Oh, and we can add cheating to the list, as well.And then there s Kate Who needs enemies when you have a friend like her I m sorry, but she s a terrible friend She s secretive, willing to hide things from her so called best friend on Jesse s behalf information that pertains to Jesse and his private life not because she knows that Jesse is a good guy, but because he bought her a new work van to keep her quiet about what she knows about the kind of business he operates I wans t a fan of the writing It was pedestrian and bland The book could also use a good editor Almost all the dialogue tags were punctuated incorrectly, with periods at the end of the dialogue where commas should ve been used instead I m of the opinion that if one is going to put their book out on the market for people to buy, then it should be properly edited His eyes turn black Don t say things like that, AvaWhen did this turn into a paranormal romance Human eyes do not turn black when one is angry Just saying.Sex, fighting, andsex That s about all this book had to offer We did eventually learn how old Jesse was Not that it mattered, because he sure as hell didn t act his age He was prone to acting like an adolescent We also learned some things about his past sexual encountersDrink and sex go hand in hand for meSo, as you can see, alcohol wasn t his only problem As far as any real plot progression went, that was the extent of it In between the excessive amount of sex scenes, there wasn t much of a story at all

Wow Before you read my review, please just open Massive Attack s Angel in a new window and play it in the background as you read This song features frequently during the book and is Jesse s song for Ava Play it LOUD This has to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 After the last desperate and devastating few chapters of This Man, we ve all been waiting with bated breath forJesse Ava The second book of a trilogy is traditionally the weakest, it s neither a beginning or an end and can often be just filler but that is NOT the case here This book just blew me away, I DEVOURED it and I am now bereft that it is over and can t wait for the third book to be able to finally conclude this intense and overwhelming romance.We left Jesse Ava in the depths of despair at the end of This Man Both of them are broken by what has happened and their relationship is seemingly in ruins They re both in pieces and wrecked and, Jesse especially, hell bent on self destruction This was done so very well their broken hearts and intense overwhelming sadness leap vividly to life right off the page and their despair is palpable They re just lost without each other.As they move beyond these events and attempt to get their relationship back on track I couldn t help feel that their connection was one of the most intense and most emotional that I think I ve ever read in romantic fiction I so wanted them to sort out their differences, to be open and honest with each other and to find that Happy Ever After that s constantly drifting ever so slightly out of reach I read with a big grin, loving every minute that they were together and then again always with that ever present worry that Jodi Ellen Malpas was going to rip the rug out from under us with some unforeseen complication and plummet them back down into the darkness It s a story of unbelievably wonderful highs followed by despondent lows Jesse is back in all his arrogant, alpha, dominant controlling glory with sleepy sex, sense fucks, reminder fucks and now even retribution fucks The steam factor in this book is off the charts HAWT The normally strong dominant playboy has been reduced to a frightened desperate soul by the intensity and depth of his feelings for Ava He s lived a hedonistic lifestyle until the moment he met her, he s never cared for the multitude of women that he s had physical relationships with and was fairly self destructive not caring whether he lived or died Now Ava has burst onto his horizon and he can hardly see straight, he loves her so much He s terrified that he s going to lose her, that someone will take her from him and she brings out all his extremely over protective instincts He s a troublesome, neurotic rogue and there were times that I wanted to scream at him, bang his head against a brick wall to knock some sense into him he made me crazy Ava too I was just rooting for them to find a happy balance an equilibrium that would ultimately ease their troubled souls but they re so deeply connected to one another, body and soul, they have the power to absolutely destroy one other Ava continues to be a wonderful heroine that you can truly believe in She s as overwhelmed as Jesse by her feelings and is completely bowled over by him She s a feisty soul and despite Jesse s dominant presence manages to win some of their battles She s strong and independent and doesn t take well to Jesse trying to micro manage her life to the nth degree and it makes for a tortuous path as they argue and dispute every little aspect of their life together only to make up with seriously hot off the charts steamy bedroom action Ava feels a connection to Jesse that she has never felt with anyone ever before and he makes her ecstatically happy and allows her to feel safe at the same time as driving her totally barking mad Beneath This Man is a beautiful, captivating, conflicting, tortuous romance that had me completely consumed by their story I was totally absorbed by the words on the page, everything else just faded into the background as I lost myself absolutely in their fictional world, fallingandin love with Jesse with every chapter There s just something so open and engaging about what is passing between them It s also funny as we get to see the little quirks of character from This Man building and growing giving you the reader a feeling that you re getting to know this central duo so very well They feel like friends There s also a great host of secondary characters with poor Clive, the much abused concierge at Lusso, John an absolute pillar of strength at The Manor and Kate and Sam and all of Ava s riotous friends and colleagues As I was lucky enough to be one of the earliest to read this, I got asked over and over the same questions how old is Jesse, how did he get that scar, did he sleep with Sarah, andAll I can say is you re just going to have to read the book I know you re all desperate to know but you don t really want me to tell you You ll want to experience it for yourself just the way the author intended.So, this was my first 5 star read of 2013 and an absolutely stunning continuation of the This Man trilogy and I can t wait to get my hands on book 3 If you liked This Man, you re going to absolutely love Beneath This Man If you enjoy your romance on the angsty, emotional and intense side then this book is most definitely for you 5 stars super steamy and very special erotic romance ARC courtesy of Jodi Ellen Malpas with thanksForreviews, please visit Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews or visit us on Facebook.

    I don t know if there was a deep hidden message in this book, you know, some kind of deep meaning that I didn t get But if there were, I could only come to the conclusion that my brain isn t developed enough to comprehend the value of it.Let me tell you what I do know I now know why the author chose the name Beneath this man, and it s because this story is about a man walking all over a girl s life, self esteem and dignity and ripping every ounce of rational thought out of her head and I do I don t know if there was a deep hidden message in this book, you know, some kind of deep meaning that I didn t get But if there were, I could only come to the conclusion that my brain isn t developed enough to comprehend the value of it.Let me tell you what I do know I now know why the author chose the name Beneath this man, and it s because this story is about a man walking all over a girl s life, self esteem and dignity and ripping every ounce of rational thought out of her head and I don t mean it in the good way This woman has literally put her lifebeneathher feelings for this man, a man that deserves nothing else but to be left to rot in a pile of flesh eating bugs.Even though this book is completely plotless and filled with crappy dialogues, there is a great variety when it comes to humiliation and abuse At the very beginning of the series we have this girl who is portrayed to be relatively normal you know, she is young, she is fairly successful in what she does Yes, she is out of a bad relationship, but haven t we all been like that at some point Then this guy comes along and smashes everything for her He literally takes her life away from her by dickmatizing her he makes her a slave to the cock, girls, and you know it.But it gets even better in Beneath this man He is literally telling her how she is supposed to live her life He wants her around him all the time, so that he can fucking control every damn second of her life And if he were reading this, he would simply sayWatch your fucking mouth Now, probably every girl on this planet loves the alpha male and or the bad boy Women just feel the need to be protected, you know it s pretty natural and I accept it What I cannot accept, however, is how on earth is it possible for women to like this book altogether This is a book about a woman being ordered around, told and forced what to do, not about a woman who is loved And if you still think that you are about to read a love story, you should simply get it out of your heads This is not love this is all about a girl becoming obsessed with a guy s dick And even though a lot of Jesse s actions are explained through his supposed love to Ava, I cannot feel the love in the air What I feel is a woman s desperation to be with a person who is manipulating her with sex To be honest, I was very happy when she somehow grasped it at one point, but unfortunately this insight didn t last long I think that I could best describe this book by using the author s own wordsMy sanity is certainly questionable, but I m sane enough to admit that I was a normal, sound minded girl I definitely don t qualify for that any To sum it up no self respecting woman that is sane, not under chemically induced coma or drugged should like this book Because liking this book automatically means that you would enjoy going through all of the shit described in this book Oh yeah, and then rate it 5 stars

He disregards my opinions and wishes at every turn, with his neurotic, challenging ways, and now I fear I m becoming neurotic and challenging as well He brings out the worst in me, and I know damn well I bring out the worst in him And just as fast as I canforget those thoughtsratherI just love sex with Jesse..so think I will just give in to him.Pleeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzz hell, this woman, Ava, drove me absolutely bonkers I wanted to jump into the book and give her a piece of my mind..like something like this I like well written sex scenes that form part of the story..but how much is enough sex scenes Well, Mr Ward Given how much sex we have, I d say you re the majority shareholder of power in this relationship And for heaven s sake..what about carpet burn.but no, this does not happen in fiction darlings..and no, Jesse Ward does not need Viagra for those hundreds and hundreds andhundreds of sex times with sweet little Ava This book could have been cut in half..there was so much repetition that I found myself skimming a lot of pages.Truthfully..I m become a bit enthusiastic about this series, so I probably will read book 3much to my dismay

    I don t know why for the life of me I keep reading these books, I must be sick in the head Reading these two books is like exploring the mind of a certified nut job, how can any woman think this shit is romantic or better yet sexy Jesse, oh Jesse, here s a tip, just cause you deny you re an alcoholic doesn t make it true Guess what YOU RE A FUCKING ALCOHOLIC I don t care how you dress it up, you have a problem and blaming other people for your actions is just stupid No one forced that bott I don t know why for the life of me I keep reading these books, I must be sick in the head Reading these two books is like exploring the mind of a certified nut job, how can any woman think this shit is romantic or better yet sexy Jesse, oh Jesse, here s a tip, just cause you deny you re an alcoholic doesn t make it true Guess what YOU RE A FUCKING ALCOHOLIC I don t care how you dress it up, you have a problem and blaming other people for your actions is just stupid No one forced that bottle of booze in your hand, that was all you I honestly don t understand how Ava can go back to someone who is nothingthan a brash, overbearing, emotionally unstable, sex addict, and all around asshole, of a man I kept waiting for him to install a GPS chip on her ass, he didn t even give her privacy in the toilet for peets sake Yes, he loves her, that s nice, so whatsevenromantic than a declaration of love, ah yes a proposal mid fuck What girl wouldn t swoon over that move, here s what I have to say to that What sannoying than Jesse is Ava, she just lets him continuously push her around Not only him but his friends too, after being wrangled into checking on Jesse she stays to take care of him Uh, let his fucking friends do that shit, you don t owe him anything Ava eventually relents and continues her relationship with the psycho but its anything but healthy He forces her into situations she is clearly uncomfortable with and its painful to read Every time she stands her ground she ends up relenting in a hot minute, and is on her back in less time than that She finally wises up to his motives regarding her birth control pills but it wasof a slap on the wrist than anything Ava, please for the love of God, run for the hills and don t look back.I don t know how the rest of the trilogy will play out, but I know that it will most likely end with me being frustrated and ready to punch someone I can only hope that if anyone meets a real life Jesse Ward they turn around and walk the other way, no sex is worth all the shit that goes along with a crazy
