Review: All I Am: Drew’s Story
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?
I may just be in the minority on this one, but… I didn’t really love All I Am as much as I had hoped. Don’t get me wrong, the story was hot as fire, but it was the brisk pace from meeting to be mine that really took be back a bit. I knew going into this story it was going to be an insta-love connection, but Drew went from happy, playboy, spinster to sappy love puppy in just a few chapters. Not exactly what I would expect to see after getting to know him a bit in the This Man main series. The saving grace for this novella for me was getting more time with Jesse (swoon). His overprotective antics have now migrated to his own children and seeing that side of him was refreshing to say the least. He’s still the deeply controlling man we all know and fell in love with, but this time, it’s different. All in All, this was just an okay read for me.
