OH MY GAWD – JESSE WARD IS BACK!!!!
I was soooo excited to read this – The This Man Trilogy is one of my all time favourite reads, I just couldn’t get enough of Jesse and Ava and their unique relationship. But I was a little nervous, could Jodi pull off the massively difficult task of making Book 4 just as good as the other 3??
The Wards are now owners of an elite gym, the twins Maddie and Jacob are now 12 yrs old and are quite used to their Mum and Dad’s unique style of relationship. Jesse is about to hit the big 5-0 birthday, and he’s less than impressed by this!! But in general life itself couldn’t get any better, Jesse and Ava have everything they have ever wanted and are still blissfully happy.
But tragedy strikes out of the blue, sending their world into a complete spiral. Ava is involved in a car accident and suffers from a horrible head injury. Jesse and his children are devastated and their world hangs in the balance as they wait and see if Ava recovers.
She regains consciousness and Jesse heaves a massive sigh of relief, only to be plunged into the depths of despair as it becomes apparent that Ava has amnesia, and cannot remember the last 16 yrs of her life – to Ava, Jesse and their twins don’t exist, she has no memories at all, and Jesse has the fight of his life on his hands to get Ava to fall in love with him all over again, after everything they have been through!!!
Oh my goodness, within the first few pages of starting this I blissfully back on Central Jesse Cloud Nine and loving it!! The family of the Wards was just as I imagined it would be – Jesse still is domineering, possessive, dirty and beautiful self and Ava is still as sassy as ever, loving Jesse with everything she is, pushing all his buttons, bringing light to his world. Their twins Maddie and Jacob and like mini me’s of their parents – Maddie is just like Ava – sassy, fiery, mouthy, knows how to push Dad’s buttons and knows how to wrap him round her finger. Jacob is just like Jesse in looks, but is very laid back in his temperament, very supportive and loving. They are used to Mum and Dad’s spontaneous showings of affection, in keeping with Jesse’s saying to Ava of “Wherever, whenever”. I loved it!! I was laughing out loud at their antics and had a permanent smile on my face.
Until I didn’t.
Until Ava has her accident. Then I was heartbroken. Jesse was heartbroken, completely lost, vulnerable. And then you find out she has no memories of their life together – I was floored, I could only imagine how Jesse felt!!!
Jesse has the battle of all battles, trying to making Ava fall back in love with him, when he was always of the opinion he didn’t deserve her love in the first place, how the hell was he supposed to get her to love him and his ways a second time!!!
What an emotional read this is!!! I went through a massive range of emotions reading this, being brought back into Jesse’s world, but under such heartbreaking circumstances – you get ALL THE FEELS HERE – love, laughter, passion, angst, heartbreak, anger, frustration, hope – I was a wreck!!!
Saying that, this was an utter pleasure to read, to be back full circle in Jesse’s world. The writing is phenomenal, the story immersive, completely captivating, and the characters are an absolute joy. I couldn’t put it down and was utterly invested in their story. If you’ve read any of JEM’s books, particularly This Man Series, you will love this. Told mainly from Jesse’s POV, which is a bloody treat in itself, the story direct from The Lord himself!!! And the ending, wow, just perfect in my mind, brings everything to a fabulous close!!
I can’t recommend this enough!!! Utterly brilliant!!! 5 stars come nowhere near close enough for this one. Paradise for me will always be wherever Jesse Ward is!!
