Release Day! All I Am: Drew's Story (A This Man Novella). Stacy's Review, and #Giveaway @JodiEllenMalpas @ForeverRomance
"No commitment. No complications. Just raw, carnal fucking."
It's been years since I read the This Man series, and to be honest, there's no need to read those books before you read this novella. But, there are character connections so if that's something that bothers you, maybe read that series first, It's one of my favorites! But other than that, if you want a fun, quick, sexy-as-hell read, look no further! Jesse Ward makes some appearances too! Which, was so nice, but this book is ALL DREW.
“This isn’t a date, Raya. The only expectation I have is a wet pussy.”
Drew Davies is a hot single dad with a kinky habit that leads him to some spectacular night-time extracurricular activities. He doesn't date, and he's perfectly content living life his way. Hux is a sex club and he's found comfort in releasing himself there, pun intended.
"this isn’t a date. All you need to know is that I have a cock and I have ability, and with them I can blow your mind.”
Raya Rivers specifically requested Drew at Hux because he came highly recommended. She wanted someone cold, and emotionless, and that's exactly who Drew could be for her. She had needs and omg did Drew fulfill them!
"I think I just made love to a woman. I don’t make love to women. I don’t gaze into their eyes. I don’t sink my nose into their skin and try to store their scent. Shit,"
The chemistry is great, the sex is HOT, the romance levels are just perfect. It's a little insta-love-ish but, I think for this book and its length, combined with how quickly you get to know the characters- it's great! Drew is the perfect mix of hot alpha male and swoon worthy book boyfriend, and in typical JEM fashion, he falls at the knees of a woman in a way that we can all appreciate and fantasize about. If you need a quick read that will tickle you in all the right places, this little novella is packed with all the sexiness you need!
“I was at Hux to avoid the complications of feelings. To get lost for a while without worrying about trust. I had planned on being just as cold and emotionless as I requested, but I couldn’t. Not with you. You weren’t supposed to be so amazing.”
Read An Excerpt
‘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.
