Book 2 of the #1 New York Times bestselling This Man trilogy
Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape--and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more. And it's exactly where Jesse wants her--within touching distance...
Wow. She continues to be spineless in this sequel and he continues to trample all over her. I was so frustrated, I couldn't even finish it. Again I am mystified by all the good reviews! There is nothing cute or charming about his overly controlling ways! In real life, she's the type of woman who ends up missing and or dead. Ridiculous!
Abusive novel...NOT romance!
I bought both the first and second books. After suffering trough the first I refuse to read this one. Jesse is manipulative and abusive. He rapes Ava on numerous occasions but she accepts it because it shows he loves her?!?! I am dumber for having read this book.
How can you find such an abusive relation so enticing??? He treats her like crap, he never tells her anything about himself, he's always avoiding all things important and she says she's in love with him?.. I don't get it, I couldn't finish it.
