[Review] With this Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

  Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling 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 the 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 sixteen 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.

Why is it in any other book I read or in real life for that matter feel like if a man is overbearing, possesive, demanding and basically being mentally abusive in some way or fashion; that it's disgusting and should be reported to authorities.
Yet, when it's Jesse Ward... it's completely okay. It makes your heart swoon! Damn it!
I fell in love with This Man, way back when it first came out. When I saw there was another installment it was instantly up for pre-order.
Anywho, back to the book.
Jesse Ward. Lord of the Manor. Possesive and gets crazy mad over things (Ava) not doing as he wants. From any description of him, he's a caveman. But a caveman with a heart that beats solely for his wife.
They've been married for twelve years, have eleven year old twins and Jesse is still rocking his gorgeous looks at fifty. But it all comes crashing down when Ava can't remember a damn thing about the past sixteen years after an accident.
I couldn't put the book down as not only Ava fell back in love with Jesse, but so did I as  reader. Going through Every. Single. F##k that he offers. Reliving the countdown.. It's perfect.
It's also hard to feel the pain of them both at the loss of their lives and the turmoil of trying to remember while making new memories.
So many ups and downs in this book. Regardless though of how it goes, trouble is never far behind and it's scary, a huge twist and downright heartbreaking in the end.
Even though I felt like I was reading a condensed version of the previous books... I love it and would read the whole damn series all over again if I could.
Another, perfect ending to the series.
