Synopsis from Goodreads:
Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has an appointment for a first consultation at The Manor with the owner, Mr Jesse Ward. She is expecting nothing more than an overweight, cravat wearing, well-to-do countryman, and on arrival, nothing would suggest otherwise. How wrong could she be? This Man is devastatingly handsome, charming and confident. He is also a conceited, hedonistic playboy, who knows no boundaries. Ava desperately does not want to be attracted to him, but she can’t control the overwhelming affect he has on her. Every instinct is telling her to run, so she does, but Jesse Ward is not so willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her. She knows she is heading for heartbreak, but how can she run when he won’t let her?
So, I literally just finished reading this book just a little while ago and I'm having a hard time recovering from what I just read!!! All that keeps coming to mind is OH.MY.GOD!!!!!!!
I am feeling soooo many feelings...major lust, anger and complete shock!!! I have heard many times that Jesse Ward is a major book hottie so I finally had to read this series! There are only 2 books that have given me a book boyfriend that I literally fantasize about, and there is no doubt about it that Jesse Ward has now upped that list to 3!
When I first started this book I immediately fell in love with Jesse, but then by the middle I started thinking "Oh great, here we go again! Another book with a controlling man and a woman who doesn't stand up for herself" (which really, really irks me) and I thought that was going to be the whole story. I've read too many books with that storyline where the author never gives you the chance to fall in love with the character because there is not much more to them then controlling. Yes, Jesse is controlling, but he is so much more than that. And this story kept me wanting more and more...thankfully I still have two more books full of Mr. Jesse Ward to read!!!
"Do you always take what you want? He watches me across the table, his face completely straight as he leans forward. 'I can't answer that, Ava, because I've never wanted anything enough to pursue it so relentlessly. Not like I wanted you."
Ava, an interior designer, is specifically requested for a job at the beautiful hotel, The Manor. When she arrives there she meets the Lord of The Manor and he is not what she expected, he is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! There is immediate chemistry between them but Ava knows she needs to stay away from him. But Jesse is determined to make her his.
" 'Just tell me one thing before you leave, Ava." His voice prickles at my senses, and I find my eyes travelling up the leanness of his body until our stares meet. His face is serious, but still stunning. 'How loud do you think you'll scream when I fuck you?"
