Jesse and Ava Ward are living a perfect life. Both are in great shape with twins and just in as much love as when they met…if not more. But after an accident, Jesse’s world is falling apart and he finds that he’s the only one that can put Ava back together. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to help her fall in love with him all over again.
“This woman has me captivated every day of our lives together. Not just when I have her in my arms, or when I’m buried deep inside her. But with everything she does. Every time she looks at me, speaks to me, touches me. I’m the luckiest man alive, and I thank the Fates every minute of every day. I love her with a fierceness that gets stronger by the second.”
All I can say is Jesse Ward is back with a vengeance. He’s his controlling, bossy, mega trampling, passionate self and he makes no apologies for it. At the beginning of this story, you can really feel the love Ava and Jesse have for each other, their family and friends. Jesse is completely devoted to Ava and she is completely devoted to him. But with a life changing twist, our favorite couple is thrown off course. I never even saw this coming and both Ava and Jesse pushed me to even my limits. It’s funny where certain emotions come flying back and I could feel myself feeling the same exact way as when I read the This Man trilogy. But I have to say that nothing was more apparent in this story than Jesse’s total adoration for his wife Ava and what he was willing to do to keep their family together. This Man is protective, loving and a little overbearing but he knows what he wants and what he needs. This was definitely a worthy sequel to Jesse and Ava’s story and full of surprises any way you look at it. Ava definitely hasn’t lost her spunk after all of her years with Jesse and for all of his countdowns, Ava was willing to still push the envelope. If you loved Jesse and Ava, you MUST read more With This Man.
If you haven’t met Jesse Ward yet, what are you waiting for? He’s the ultimate alpha male that does whatever it takes to protect the people he cares about. With his woman Ava being first in line.

eKindle Review by Jen
With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas is a breathtaking, emotional love story that will forever be branded in my heart and ingrained in my soul. My gosh, I couldn’t put it down and I didn’t want it to end. I kept looking at my location and hoping against all hope that this would be a never ending book. I loved every single book in this series but this book blew me away! I found myself highlighting so many parts of the book and rereading it as it just squeezed my heart and made me fall even more in love with the all alpha man that Jesse is, has been and always will be. His love for his Ava knows no bounds and even if it did he would break through them.
As soon as I started to read the first chapter of this book, I immediately was transported back into the world of Jesse and Ava. Their love for one another is as strong as ever and if possible perhaps even stronger. Their banter and chemistry is beyond charming and off the charts. I soon realized how long it has been since I visited their world and I missed both Jesse and Ava terribly. In With This Man, Jesse and Ava’s world is turned on its head when Ava is in a car accident and is left with a horrific head injury. This head injury leaves her without any memories for the past 16 years of her life. No memories of Jesse, their love, their journey, and their children. This devastating news leaves Ava unsure and Jesse at a complete loss. After everything these two have been through to have the memories wiped is earth shattering and heart breaking. But in true Jesse fashion he refuses to give up on the one person who never gave up on him, Ava. He will do everything in his power to help her get those memories back or create new ones so she has no other option but to fall back in love with him. In order not to give any of the story away, as no one should be cheated out of this love story, Jesse goes to great lengths to prove his love to his one and only. My heart broke for Ava on many occasions as I couldn’t possibly fathom what it would be like to all memories wiped away and have to trust what people are telling you. Even though the memories were gone there were internal instincts that made her “have a feeling” about something even though she didn’t know or understand why. It’s those moments where hopes would begin to rise and you couldn’t help but cheer her on. I loved how Jesse, the man who would move the moon if Ava requested, had to learn new ways/tricks to help navigate this unknown territory. As it is in real life once you get comfortable with what could become the new norm, the past sometimes rears its ugly head and sends you on path you didn’t expect. Will Jesse be able to make Ava fall in love with him once again or will the head trauma and the love story of Jesse and Ava conclude?
I devoured each word that Jodi magically created in this story and fell in love with these characters all over again. I plan, very soon, to go back to the first book and read it all over again. I want every single person on this planet to read this story! This story, well the entire series, is without a doubt a 10++star read! With This Man takes us on a beautiful emotional epic love story that we will not forget anytime soon.
