Launch Day Blitz for ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA) by Jodi Ellen Malpas.

ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA) by Jodi Ellen Malpas (June 18, 2017; Forever Yours ebook; $2.99)

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?

Blog 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.

Words can't tell you how excited I was to be back with the This Man gang, I was jumping up and down. This Novella was just perfect and this is Drew's story .......
Drew is almost 40 years old and the love of his life is his 7 year old daughter, he has never had time for love or relationships, for him his one night stands with women with no names at the Hux Club is all he wants that is until he meets Raya. The attraction is instant and the chemistry is intense and one night will never be enough. Has the man who has never been in love finally fallen ........
Im so pleased that we got Drew's story I think it was a story we needed, I loved getting to know what made this sexy mysterious man tick and what finally made him realise he was capable of loving someone other than his daughter and did I mention this book is HOT!!!  Jodi Ellen Malpas gives us just a few snippets of what Jessie & Ava, Sam & Kate are doing without them taking over Drew's story, this is brilliant addition to the This Man Trilogy. Jodi Ellen Malpas has once again given us another 5 star read.

OMG I literally cannot tell you how excited I was for this book. All That I am is a novella about Drew.
And what a story it is. Fast forward 7 years after the This Man series ended…Drew is still visiting certain clubs and getting his fill of women…or is he?? Is he on the search for someone? Especially since Coral did a number on him all those years ago, hes not exactly trusting.

Enter Raya, they meet at the sex club for a cold and unattached pleasurable experience, little did they both know how things would turn out. There may be some really HOT moments, some difficult times too as Drew comes to terms with his feelings, but he has a certain someone to also take into consideration. Lets just say when the proverbial poo hits the fan….things can become rocky…but how will things between them end up??? You will have to read it to find out!!
Hot, steamy and downright enjoyable…especially seeing also how Jesse, Ava, Kate and Sam are doing too. I need MORE…I want Sam and Kate’s story now….pretty please????????!!!!!

Although an extremely quick read, I must say it was great to be back in the This Man arena. Throw in the fact that Jesse and Ava along with Sam make an appearance and I felt like I was coming home. 

Loved this book from start t finish, and if you are a fan of the This Man series, you will love it too. My only disappointment was that it was not longer, I just wanted to immerse myself in this world and sadly as this is a novella, it was over too fast for me.

As was to be expected when Jesse makes an appearance there is laughter, tension, hilarious banter between the men as well as Jesse and Ave; who would have thought that a daughter would bring Jesse to his knees. 

Drew too has a daughter and having this in common with Jesse is a good thing, although at times it felt as though is was the blind leading the blind. I really liked Drew and Raya, you could feel the chemistry between these two no matter how hard they fought it initially.

At times this felt like a roller-coaster with tension and miss communicating abounding, however after an emotional confrontation Drew and Ava, got their happily ever after which they so deserved.

Hopefully this is not the last we here from the This Man world. I received an ARC through the publisher via Netgalley
