Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the sensual world of This Man...
Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries.
Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

The man is crazy

First off, it must be said that the writing is above average and the narration is excellent. The romance is strong and the sex scenes are hot. Those who like the dominant man mold will like the Ava / Jesse dynamic.

BUT. Jesse goes beyond dominant. The man is a control freak! If Ava was my friend or daughter, I would tell her to leave at a run and get a restraining order. He tries to control every aspect of her life - what she wears (he chops up a dress he considers too short), won't let her see friends, tries to make her stop working and, unforgivably, steals her birth control pills to get her pregnant to tie her to him. He throws a tantrum whenever she tries to stand up to him - he counts to 3, for heaven's sake - like you do with a toddler! When she discovers that his hotel is actually a sex club and leaves him, he drinks himself into a stupor and blames her for it.

Ava is an interior designer, living and working in London.She's completely swept off her feet by him and seems to lack the maturity to deal with it. Her complete surrender comes across as less uncontrollable love and lust and more as too young to stand up to him. He throws tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants and as for the 'watch your f***ing mouth' when she swears... like she's a badly behaved teenager.
