ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA) by Jodi Ellen Malpas (June 18, 2017; Forever Yours ebook; $2.99)

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas comes a new novella in the This Man series. You don't need to read the series to enjoy this story, but if you're already a Jesse Ward fan, just wait till you see the advice he gives Drew about falling in love.

I thought I had control.  I was so, so wrong...

I don't need a relationship.  I have Hux, a decadent club where I quench whatever raw desire I choose.  I take pleasure and I give it - no strings attached.  So when Raya Rivers comes in asking for someone cold, emotionless, and filthy... well, no man ever takes his wicked pleasure quite the way I do.
  Only Raya is different. Vulnerable. And carrying some deep sorrow that gets past all my carefully constructed walls and inexplicably makes me care.  Now craving controls me.  Ice has given way to red-hot need.
  But Raya has no idea about my other life - my real life.  That I'm daddy to an adorable little girl.  My two worlds are about to collide with the force of a supernova.  Once Raya knows the truth, will she be able to accept all I am?

This novella completely took me by surprise and I found myself trying to read at a snails pace just so I could savor all of this hot goodness! I’m seriously kicking myself for not having read the previous books in the series but rest assured, I will be rectifying that situation ASAP. 

“Jesus Christ. This woman could be my downfall. Could make me forget who I am. All I am.” 

Being a father to a little girl who he would do anything for, is the most important thing to Drew Davies. He loves his daughter unconditionally and being able to spend time with her and raise her the right way, is what has Drew going above and beyond to make sure she has the best life possible. Being around her mother on the hand, gives him a constant heartburn that no antacids can cure but he tolerates her.

When he’s not being a good guy four days a week, Drew likes to be tangled up in all sorts of sexual encounters at the Hux sex club where he gets a no strings attached arrangement with any woman that he wants. When he’s introduced to a woman who wants that very same arrangement, Drew is more than willing to be of assistance. But what happens when their one night of sexual bliss turns out to be something more?

Will Drew finally open himself up to the possibility of love? 

“I can see nothing, feel nothing, sense nothing, except her. Rules vanish. Sense abandon me. Questions vanish. Craving controls me. And Raya’s is with me one hundred percent. 

I really liked the fact that Drew and Raya’s connection to each other felt genuine, and when those two were in a room together? IT WAS HOT!! These two were passionate in everything they did but that wasn’t my favorite thing about this story. Seeing Drew interact with his daughter and feeling that bond between them, was the highlight for me. Although I haven’t read the previous books in the series, I still enjoyed this one and I think if you’re a fan of the series, you definitely can’t afford to miss out on this. 

‘What do you want, Raya?’
She steps toward me tentatively, as if she’s questioning what she’s doing. And when she reaches me, her chest pressed to mine, she gazes up at me. ‘I don’t know.’ Her eyes are wild and unsure. ‘But I know that every time we’re close, something powerful takes over. And you’re trying hard to fight it. You’re warm and cold. What are you scared of?’ 
 ‘You.’ My mouth is on her before I can think better of it, and I’ve lifted her from her feet before my tongue breaches the seam on her lips. We should talk, but this is the only thing I know what to say right now, and when her arms circle my shoulders, her mouth opening up, inviting me in, I know she’s okay with it. I know she gets it. 
With one arm around her waist holding her to me and one secured on the nape of her neck, I walk to my office, my kiss deep, my blood racing, my heart bouncing off my ribcage. I set her on her feet and take the hem of her dress, pulling it up over her head, losing her lips for just a second in the process. She wrenches my shirt open, scattering buttons in the process, her hands immediately finding my skin beneath. My forward steps encourages her backwards, our kiss deepening as she unfastens my trousers and I push her knickers down her thighs. 
We’re all over the place, desperation getting the better of us, a mess of tongues, hands and bodies. I pull some strength from nowhere, seize her hands and break our kiss, breathing heavily. Her unsure brown eyes soon prompts me to start ridding myself of the rest of my clothes, all under her watchful gaze. Until I’m naked. 
 ‘This wasn’t supposed to happen,’ she whispers.
