Book 2 of the #1New York Timesbestselling This Man trilogy

Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape--and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved! As with every "erotic romance" novel, the reader is either going to love it or hate it. I understand the controversy and arguments about emotional/verbal/physical abuse that could be seen in this novel. Those are all valid opinions because I believe the actions are what the reader perceives as either right or wrong. With that being said, I did enjoy this novel. It's over 500 pages but it's a fast page turner. It's hot, steamy, and I enjoy the characters as well as the chemistry between them. Jesse Ward is controlling but man, is he protective and HOT. Additionally, I enjoy how this novel doesn't necessarily follow the typical dominant/submissive roles. Yes, it could be said there is a division on who is the more "controlling" one one in the couple. But you know what, sometimes I find there's a more vocal/controlling person in a couple in everyday life. Also, there is no equipment or intention to cause pain in this romance which is a nice deviation from the current trend of this genre of novels. Overall, I would recommend this novel (and this series) to others who enjoy the erotic romance genre. It's not world class literature in any form but it succeeds in its intention of being entertaining and enjoyable to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the story moves in this part... Now this is good. I didn't really like the book 1 "This Man" though... as it was filled with senseless sex but in "Beneath this Man", the story moves forward and we see Jesse progressing more in "being friend" as he opens up his darkest secrets to Ava. We see love in them as Jesse realizes that he is the one who's at Ava's mercy and can't live without her. Despite being neurotic, control freak, Ava still loves him with all his dark side and their chemistry shows more spark. It was a good read. Note: too much swearing though -- literary too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After reading 'This Man', I rushed to purchase the next as I wasn't near done getting my full of Jesse and Ava. These two enthralled me with their connection to each other and the lengths that they would go to prove they were to belong together. Definitely my favorite series out there! Looking forward to more from this author
