Rating: 5 Stars
Official Blurb: 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.
Review: Oh I was so excited to find out there would be a novella to the This Man series. I adored the series so much I couldn’t wait to read Drew’s story. And let me tell you… it’s HOT and AMAZING! It also helped a lot we got a taste of Jesse again… and Drew and Jesse together (totally swooning).
Drew doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t trust women, and he has his little girl to worry about. Drew is involved in a club called Hux where he meets Raya. At first, Drew knows Raya will be just another one of many, but then suddenly everything changes. Drew starts to have feelings for Raya and believe me they both fight it along the way.
I love older men and younger women and Drew and Raya fit together perfectly. Yes, it took me a minute to warm up to Drew, but once I did I fell pretty hard. I liked Raya as well. She has a lot of emotional issues like Drew so they fit perfectly together. I also adored Drew’s daughter Georgia. I wish this story would have been a bit longer, but Jodi Ellen definitely did not disappoint!
