* spoiler free review
I received an ARC of This Man Confessed through Net Galley and Forever(Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for my honest review.
5 Central Jesse Cloud Nine Stars!
You've taken me completely, baby. You've swallowed me up and drowned me in your beauty and spirit. You know I can't function without you. You've made me want to live a worthy existence--a life with you. All I need is you--to look at you; to listen to you; to feel you. To love you."
Jesse Ward, Lord of the Sex Manor, just melts my heart. This series was wonderful and I feel like Jodi Ellen Malpas has ended it perfectly.
Throughout the entire book I was screaming at Jesse and Ava and their challenging ways. It seems that whatever bad stuff could happen, did happen. We are met with so many of the previous characters from Jesse and Ava's past so you can easily imagine how bad things get. And then there is the new people we meet and find out some very interesting things about Mr. Jesse Ward that will shock you and break your fucking heart!
So many people complain of Jesse and his controlling ways, well read this book and you will find out why he truly is the way he is. It's heart-wrenching the things this man has endured in his life. But yet, he still manages to love Ava unconditionally. "Do you feel that?" He flattens my palms on his chest and holds them there firmly. "It was made to love you, Ava. For too long it was useless, redundant, not required. Now it's gone into overdrive. It swells with happiness when I look at you. It splinters with pain when we fight. And it beats wildly when I make love to you. Maybe I go overboard with my love, but that's never going to change. I'll love you this fiercely until the day I die, baby."
After I started reading this book, I had to stop to go to work and I sat at my desk thinking about what was going to happen and chill bumps would rise on my arms because I was that enthralled by the story. My emotions were all over the place, I wanted to scream at them one minute and then my heart was bursting with joy at how easily they could overcome that obstacle.
I don't know why but for some reason I absolutely loved when Jesse referred to Ava as lady. "Sarcasm doesn't suit you, lady" I would smile every time he said something like that and it was often!
The epilogue.....holy smokes we get some of Jesse's POV and its brilliant! The love this man has in him is breathtakingly beautiful. There is so much more I want to say, but I can't talk about anything without giving away the story and trust me this is one of those books you need to read without knowing much about it because when the story unfolds you want to experience it with them.
