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 until 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?
Includes a special preview of THE FORBIDDEN, a standalone novel coming in August.
All I Am is a quick and sexy little spin off of Jodi Ellen Malpas’s wildly successful This Man series. The plot centers around Drew in this story. It’s been so long since I’ve read the trilogy that I completely forgot who Drew was at first, but there’s enough exposition that your memory will be easily refreshed. FYI, Drew is one of Jesse’s two best mates.
The novella is a bit of a thank-you gift to fans of the series. The story takes place seven years after This Man Confessed, and I must say it’s an awfully fun reunion with Jesse and crew. Drew is the only one who is still happily single and involved in the BSDM sex club scene. He’s a model single father to his young daughter, but he has a reputation for being cold and detached towards women. Raya Rivers is new to the club and she gets paired up with Drew one night. He immediately gets stars in his eyes, and so the story begins.
Raya has an air of mystery around her that makes her more interesting. Drew’s relationship with his daughter is delightful, especially as it contrasts to his dark sexual activities. Raya and Drew’s love affair is hot, fast, and rather predictable. While there may be some illogical events in the story, it’s an enjoyable romance—especially for a novella—and a special treat for those who want to take a trip back to the This Man world.
All I Am does contain some spoilers from the series so I recommend that you read all three previous books first.
