Publisher's Summary

Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling This Man series!

Life is good for Jesse 'The Lord' Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he's in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He's in full control, just how he likes it. But Jesse's perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman's love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn't end there. It's only just begun. Because his wife can't remember the last 16 years of her life.

That's all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her. Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories...and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.

J❤️ss❤️ F❤️cking W❤️rd

What a great series. Jesse Ward is the most hilarious, loveable, possessive alpha male I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know! His adorable potty mouthed wife Ava is equally as fabulous.

I really enjoyed the ‘this man’ series and can’t wait to check out more of Jodi’s books.

Wow

Gotta love Jesse. This was just as awesome as the first three. The highs and lows, the crazy in love. Finding their way back to each other with kids now was great. Just loved it. Narration was awesome too.

Jesse Cloud Nine!!!

I don’t think I can ever get enough of being on Jesse Cloud Nine!!!! WITH THIS MAN was absolute PERFECTION!! I ADORED Jesse and his OTT possessiveness of Ava and his children! The love he has for them is beyond words. They ARE his whole world. I loved this story because we are treated to classic Jesse and Ava! It’s like the first three books times a million! I was laughing, I was crying and I was swooning! There was however one incident that happens towards the end of the book (the death of a character) which I thought was unnecessary. That just made me end the book on a very somber note and I wish the author had not done that!

10 Plus Star Review With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas
I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the latest book in one of my favourite series ever since it was announced. With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas was everything I hoped for and so much more.
Jesse and Ava have always held a special place in my heart, but now I have to say that Jesse Ward is now one of my top book boyfriends of all time. Until I read and listened to this book I had no idea just how much I have missed these characters and his wonderful Jesse-isms.
With This Man had me laughing out loud so many times and sobbing too. Jodie wove together a true masterpiece that absolutely did justice only to the Ward family but also their extended family of friends.
Not only did I read this one but I immediately also purchased the audible version to listen to it as well. The audible addition was great to listen to. It brought across the angst, worry , frustration, humour and fear so much that my heart was palpitating at times.
For fear of saying too much and to be honest I do not think any words I write will do this book justice, I am not going to say any more, other than to state that if you are a fan of this author and her series, then this is a must read.

A fantastic walk down memory lane

Well this was a fantastic walk down memory lane. Jesse Ward can be a very divisive lead character among readers, you either love him or loathe him, there is no grey area where the Lord of the Manor is concerned. I am definitely a lover.

The book blurb tells you the premise of this story so I’m giving nothing away that isn’t already mentioned there. We pick up a few years after This Man Confessed left off and the kids are now 11 years old.

Life is wonderful for the Ward family and Jesse is about to turn 50 years old. It’s been smooth sailing really and their friends Kate & Sam and Drew are having their own life changing moments too.

When Ava is involved in a terrible accident she loses her memory, she can’t remember anything from the last 16 years, which means she has no memory of Jesse or their children. This is Jesse’s worst nightmare. Jesse sets out to help Ava remember their epic love story so he goes back to the beginning, right where they first met – The Manor.

This wasn’t just a reminder of their love and the rocky road the travelled to where they are now. There is also Kate & Sam’s life, Drew’s, John and a few other new characters. There were several unexpected moments that completely shocked me and one poignant moment had me in tears.

More than anything though was the intensity of Jesse & Ava’s love. Despite what she was going through the strength of her love for Jesse broke through as quickly as it did when they first met. He may have been a stranger to her but she felt him and knew deep inside that she was meant to be with him.

This was a fantastic conclusion to Jesse and Ava’s story. I really enjoyed the narration of this too ☺

‘I’m human. I’m a dad. A husband. My family is both my biggest weakness and my greatest strength. I live and breathe for them, and that will never change. Until the day I die, it will always be about them.’

not to bad. just a bit to much screening

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, i read it twice and enjoyed it both times

Any additional comments?

They should make a movie out of this book. Jodi deserve more credits for this book. I have read the series 4 times and enjoyed it all every time.

THE END, LEFT YEARNING FOR MORE!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the romance that is Jesse and Ava. It is refreshing to follow The Happily Ever After, with the continuous love and exploits of family life. Edita Brychta is great as usual. But Jack George's comedy timing and overall charm truly captured my attention. He made me both laugh and cry in turn. and I am heartbroken that the story has ended.
Please Please Please...... use Jack George in future books

Wow

I've read all the books but I just needed to hear this one in audio, as I have always imagined what Jessie would sound like, and I wasn't disappointed, he was as sexy as I'd imagined he would be, as vulgar as I thought he would be, vulnerable, when you read a book you don't get the true emotion 's, but I did when listening in audio, I laughed, and cried my eye's out, well worth a listen, I will be doing it again 👍👍👍👍👍

Simply amazing!

Well what can I say? She’s done it again - what a beautiful ending to a fantastic series, rounded off perfectly and although I’m sad to now finally say goodbye to Jesse and Ava I’m so happy the finale to their story was executed so well. 10/10!

I have never laughed or cried so much, Well worth the credit. With this man takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Could not put the book down. And finishes the series off.

Just Wonderful

Had been a little nervous about this book as the first three had ended so well. Wished I hadn’t kept putting it off-should have trusted this author to write beautifully as always. Liked the male voice. I know I will listen again and again just love this author’s books. I

Damn…

I love the character, the books and the world of This Man.

I didn’t think I could love it more but … than I heard it be bought to life by this man… damn he’s got a fab voice and just how I’d imagined Jesse to sound ❤️
