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 woman could be my downfall. Could make me forget who I am. All I am.”
I am a HUGE fan of all things Jesse Ward and his This Man series, so when I heard a novella of one of his good pal’s Drew was coming out, I read it straight away. I only remembered a bit of Drew from Jesse’s books, but I loved getting to know him. And of course, seeing more of my Lord of the Manor!
Drew is pushing forty and the only guy in his group of friends who’s still single. He doesn’t do relationships. He has many reasons, but the most important is his daughter. Drew gets all he needs from Hux (a club similar to the Manor). One night at the club, he meets Raya. Raya is younger than him, and she’s looking for something particular. Someone cold, emotionless, and filthy. Drew can be all those things during sex.
The problem, when these two have sex, there is a spark. And it’s hard to be unfeeling when a spark is there. Raya is mysterious and Drew doesn’t know much about her life. Raya has no clue Drew is a father. I just sat there… waiting for all this to unfold and see how it would turn out. I wanted these two together despite all the odds. You could truly feel their connection, and after all Drew has been through, he deserves to fall in love with someone worthy.
I really did enjoy Drew and Raya’s story, but nothing made me quite as happy as seeing my very own Jesse Ward. He had a many of scenes throughout this novella and it made my heart so happy. Jesse is still… well, Jesse. And I couldn’t love him more.
“You’re pushing fifty, and the only reason you got out was because, by some miracle, you found a woman who could deal with your unreasonable arse.”
“I’m forty-six and I’m not unreasonable.” He nods, as if agreeing with himself. “I don’t know why everyone keeps harping on me like I’m some crazy ape man who has no reason.”
His bottle pauses midway to his lips when he clocks me and Sam staring at him with slightly agape mouths.
“I’m perfectly reasonable.”
All I Am was a short read, but it had a lot of story within such few pages. It was hella sexy and even a tad emotional. I adored Drew, Raya, and little Georgia. Highly recommend this one to all fans of JEM’s This Man series. You won’t be disappointed!
