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?
If you haven’t read the THIS MAN series by Jodi Ellen Malpas, don’t worry it’s not really necessary. However, you won’t be disappointed if you DO happen to read This Man before diving in to this book.
When I heard that she was releasing a novella for This Man, I GOT SO EXCITED. I just loved Jesse and Ava so much! I really wanted to get to know Drew a bit more too after reading This Man, so I am so glad that JEM released this book!
This book takes place after the epilogue of the This Man series. Drew is pushing Forty and he’s the only one still single among their group. He has his daughter, Georgia, and that’s all he needs. Hux, a club similar to The Manor, takes care of his other needs. He’s pretty much come to terms with the way his life is and will always be….until he meets Raya.
I’ll be honest, I did enjoy the book but it left me wanting more. By more, I mean more Jesse, the parts of the book where he makes an appearance are the best! I’m sorry, Drew! Although, I did quite enjoy Drew’s daughter, Georgia, too. She was adorable! I don’t know, maybe if Drew and Raya had gotten a bit more to their story, a novel instead of a novella, I might have enjoyed it more. Oh well, it was still a good read and I’m glad I did get to see what’s happening in their world again. SPOILER ALERT! View Spoiler »
Anyways, yeah definitely read this novella if you want to see what Jesse, Ava, Sam, Kate, and Drew are up to. Maybe you’d like to know what that bitch Coral is up to, she makes an appearance or two… I’m going back to listening to the This Man audiobook now. 😉 The Lord <3
