First up though, we bring you………………………


When Jesse met Ava.


I reach up and yank my tie loose. Shit, I need a drink. Glancing down at my Rolex, I grudgingly note it’s only mid-day. Another hour, I can wait another hour. My office door knocks and the big guy strides in.

‘Jesse. Miss O’Shea, Rococo Union.’

‘Perfect. Thanks John.’ My voice is hoarse. I’ll get this meeting out of the way, and then I’m having a drink. I should’ve got Sarah to deal with this.

I look up and watch as John slowly shifts. Then I nearly choke. What the fuck? I slowly rise from my chair, fully aware that her gaze is rising with me. Is this her? Is this the woman who’s filled my new pad with Italian shit?  Italian shit that inflated the place by another million quid? She’s young.

I start walking around my desk, her eyes still firmly set on me. Oh yes, she’s affected, but fuck me, so am I. My legs are moving, my fucking legs are moving, but I can’t feel the damn things. I should’ve shaved. Do I look older with stubble?

Jesus, she’s getting more beautiful the closer I get, her dark hair pinned up, her perfect little figure screaming for me to run my hands all over it. Shit, I want to remove those pins and plunge my fingers into those shiny locks. Her eyes. Holy shit, those fucking chocolate eyes.

Jesus, Ward, pull it together! I wonder how old she is – mid-twenties, perhaps. Too young for me? I look good for my age – I know damn well I look good for my age. Will she think I look good? Every fucking woman on the planet thinks I look good, so why would she be any different? She’s drinking me in, assessing every part of me, those eyes running up and down my body. She’s mentally undressing me. I should take my shirt off and confirm what she’s thinking. John said Miss O’Shea, didn’t he?  She isn’t married then, not that it matters.

What the hell should I do? I know what I want to do – I want to spread her on my desk and take my sweet time peeling that dress off, watch as those eyes smoke out and listen as her breathing falters.

Smile at her. I should smile at her. I can’t smile at her. My trusty smile is ignoring me. I’m being failed by all of my magnet assets when I want them to work the most.

I finally convince my arm to lift, offering my hand. I’m giving her three seconds to take it before I’m moving in.




Zero, baby.

I slowly lean forward and grasp her shoulders, my face going straight to the smooth, olive skin of her cheek. Good Lord, she smells as good as she looks. I feel her tensing under my touch, and I laugh to myself. I’ve got her. Thank the fucking Lord, I’ve got her.

‘It’s a pleasure.’ I whisper. It really fucking is, and I smile as I hear her moan. I ease up on my grip and lower myself so I’m at her eye level. ‘Are you okay?’ I can feel my lips curving into a smile as she lifts those stunning chocolate eyes to mine. She is so so affected.

She suddenly seems to snap out of her trance, and she steps back, my hands dropping to my side. Shit, I need to hold her again. ‘Hi.’ She virtually coughs it out. ‘Ava, my name is Ava.’ She holds her hand out to me.

I’ve broken out in a sweat and I’m shaking like a sad twat. I really need to stop drinking. I take her hand and squeeze, but pull away when I’m attacked by a shocked buzz that flies up my arm and stabs at my heart, making it suddenly buck wildly in my chest. What the fuck was that? Fuck! I have a fucking heart.

‘Ava.’ I repeat her name, it falling naturally from my lips. Oh Jesus, I need to be shouting that when I’m hammering into her. I want to make her scream, claw at me, hold on to me.

She’s just staring at me – this painfully beautiful woman is staring at me, and damn, I think I actually want this one more than once.

I smile on the inside. Oh yes. You are so mine, lady.

This man was a fantastic read, literally could not put it down (yes i turned antisocial for under a day as i read it) can’t wait to read beneath this man as i just know it will be as addictive and as well written as this man. well done Jodi Ellen Malpas… You rock!!

  175. Lariza

    OMG loved it!! Oh Jesse Ward!!!

  176. Stefanie

    OMG! I.seriously cannot wait for this book to come out! It’s driving me crazy!

  177. Ashley Haywood

  179. Sonja Chilcote

  180. Mallory

  181. Niki Ferguson

    I LOVED this book and would love Jodi to write a book based on Jesse’s POV (hint, hint)… I cannot wait until Friday! woo hoo….

  182. Sola

    So looking forward to reading more about Jesse and Ava !!

  183. Becky

    Sounds yummy 🙂 Can’t wait to read this book 😉

  184. Nancy P

    Dear Lord! I am in love with this Jesse! I love his POV!!!

  185. Jennifer Long

    This just makes me love Jesse more. As much as we can sense his insecurities in This Man, seeing how they affect his thoughts and behavior is so much fun. I agree that a whole book from his POV would be fantastic. Beginning This Man again this evening with utterly antagonizing impatience for Friday! Simply cannot wait!

  186. Amy

    Cannot wait for Friday!!!

  187. Lori

    Loved Jesse’s POV! Can’t wait for book 2! Only 1 more day!!!!

  188. Jennifer Noe

    So excited for tomorrow! After reading the review of the ARC, my excitement has grown! Then adding Jesse’s POV in the mix, I can’t wipe the smile on my face. Squeeee!!!!!! Bring on the 18th!!

  189. Janet W.

    I can’t wait to read this!

  190. Lena

    Amazing! I can’t wait one more day!

  191. Melissa

  192. Christina B

    Whew! Oh my! *fans self*. I need to move this series up on my TBR list.

  193. cin lopez

    I can’t wait for this book!!!! Mr ward is an amazing character and a complete book from his POV would be awsome. MR WARD IS THE LORD OF MY MANOR

  194. Ashley Louis

    Its always great to hear the point of view of the other character. Jesse is an interesting man. Cant wait for his secrets to unfold. Especially his age.

  195. Brandy R.

    have heard that this one is a great read! 🙂

  196. Roxanne

    Loved this man, cannot wait to read Beneath this Man!

  197. Summer

  198. Sophia P


  199. Amanda

    I skipped over This Man and did not have it onmy TBR list. After this review of Beneath This Man, I will be starting This Man tomorrow and moving on to book two in the series right after.


  200. amy thomas

    Good Lord, can he please be real-ish!

  201. katie long

    Sweet baby jesus! Please someone tell me there is more where that came from!!!

  202. Lindy Hankins

    Crazy loved Jesse’s POV!

  203. Karen Berkeley

    When I started reading ‘this man’, my first thoughts were about what went through Jesse’s mind when he first set eyes on Ava and the subsequent encounters with her….especially the bit when she went to the restroom to regroup and he was left with his thoughts…or rather, wth her mobile phone, which turned out to become quite an obsession with him!
    It would be a glorious treat to Jodi’s loyal readers if she was to write a whole book on Jesse’s point of view and well, his entire life story! As women, we like to know the more profound details of the alpha-charachters!

  204. Debbie L

    Its Friday night, snow is thick on the ground, a glass of rum by my elbow. I am now back in possession of my Kindle after Ian hid it and rereading This Man. Hopefully I will get to start Book 2 tomorrow sometime. It totally depends on how much armchair time I get!

  205. Debra D

    Would love to win these, haven’t read them yet!

  206. Clarise

    Brilliant! Reading this, makes me want to read ”This Man” for a 3rd time! I’m convinced ”Beneath This Man” won’t dissapoint! Can’t wait!

  207. Daphne W

    I have read both books three times….I am not a patient person to wait for book 3…when can we have a teaser????

  208. Lola Fox

    OMG! OMG! Have read them both and Ah-Mah-Zing! I am totally on Central Jesse Cloud Nine!

  209. Michelle Henderson

    Amazing as always and now we want to read more into Jesse!!!!! Hot Photo!!! Almost what I was imagining

  210. Kylie Nagel

    Christian who?……Thank you so much to Jodi for introducing me to The Lord of the Manor, Central Jesse Cloud Nine never ever wanna come down.

  211. Grace Inglese

    Just started ‘Beneath’, book II. Great story…..loved the Jesse’s point of view teaser and photo. He’s how I pictured Jesse to be……bring on the rest of Jesse’s point of view……please!

  212. Janet Watts

    Reading This Man now…..WOW!

  213. Enid

    Oh my cant wait to read them…..

  214. Diane Fogg

    Loved This Man, which was my favourite book. I’m now reading Beneath This Man, which is also now my favourite book!

  215. Franca

    The best 2 books ever ,can’t wait for the last one ,hope she keep on writing similar books .

  216. Sheraka

    I love, love, love Jesse. I so wish there was more than just three books, I can’t wait for This Man Confessed. Crushing on Jesse and a little something for Sam 🙂

  217. Michelle

    Can’t wait to read!

  218. Tess

    YUM!!!!! GREAT BOOKS!!! Can wait for next one!!!

  219. Gayle Fulawka

    OMG that was great!

  220. Andrea Ehrhardt

    Love this perspective from Jessie. Would love to read more! I love these books!!! I couldn’t put them down…Read them both in 3 days. I cannot wait for book 3!!!

  221. M. Kay

    Loved it! Haha, I’m glad he realized he had a heart. I would love to read more from Jesse’s POV. Please think about writing a 4th book entirely from his POV, Ms. Malpas.

  222. connie

    Love the books! Especially the antics of Kate and Ava in This Man. Reminds me of my friends. I really appreciate all the music references too. I downloaded quite a lot from.itunes.. I am enjoying Sam Sparro he is a true find.

  223. Kathy

    Yes!!! I that man is totally Jesse! Yes, thank you David Kimmerle!

  224. Lisa

    A friend recommended this series to me. Bought the first book and would love to win the second!

  225. Deb Andrews

    This one scene from his POV changed my mind about Jesse. I know lots of women fell in love with him, but there were too many incidents made me doubt he’d be good for Ava. But I now see his potential…he needs Ava as much as she needs him. An entire book from his POV would probably be eye opening for those who have read both books!

  226. Mary Mooney

    More please. Love Jesse and Ava!

  227. Melody Lopez

    Can’t get enough 🙂

  228. krista

    Ohhh I am soo excited for more! That was a great tease!

  229. Samantha

    As an aspiring writer….I was hooked from…… ‘I reach up and yank my tie loose’
    Im not only just hooked, I am seriously addicted………x

    Thankyou for inspiring me to find the courage to finally let my thoughts fall to paper..x

  230. Carla Cook

    LOVE IT!!! OMG!!!!!

  246. Nona Hove

    Great Series!! Can’t wait to read more!!

  247. Deborah

    OK….I loved these books! The ending in “Beneath This Man” was so tantalizing and touching that I immediately read it again with the same intensity. I can’t wait to read “This Man Confessed”! I hope it share’s some of Jesse’s POV….I already have a few thoughts floating through my head about Ruth Quinn and the code to the building!

  248. Dee

    Thank you for sharing all of your talent with us!! You are a phenomenal writer and we look forward to all that you have to share!! The future story line and your future works of art!!
