REVIEW – ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (This Man #3.5) by Jodi Ellen Malpas


A new novella featuring Drew from the #1 New York Times bestselling This Man trilogy!

I’ve been revisiting a few old friends. You remember Drew? The dark, mysterious pal of Jesse’s? The cool guy, who kept himself to himself? Yes, him! It’s time for Drew to shine in a brand-spanking-new THIS MAN Novella coming June 18th! I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had going back to my roots, and I just know you’re gonna LOVE Mr Davies. I hope a little something while you’re waiting for THE FORBIDDEN (Aug 8th) will put a smile on your face as wide as mine

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 a daddy to an adorable little girl.
My two worlds are about to collide with the force of a supernova. And once Raya knows the truth, will she be able to accept all I am?

4.5 Stars!

-You made me feel like the world began and ended with me.



Drew Davies is a 39 yr. old gorgeous single man living in London. He’s built one of the most competitive estate agencies in the city & had a passion for his work. He doesn’t have much free time outside of the office & spending time with his daughter. He doesn’t date, & since his best friend Jesse sold the Manor, he’s been forced to find a new place to play & let off some steam. He now frequents the Hux sex club to fulfill his needs. This lifestyle suits him. He’s all about decadent fantasy with no strings pleasure. He likes easy with no commitments, expectations, or drama. Just raw, carnal sexual experiences. Hux is relaxing & it’s what he likes. He was burned in the past, & as a result, isn’t trusting of women. The only female he’s ever committed to is his 7 yr. old daughter. Georgia is his world, & he reserves all his emotions for her.


One evening Drew is introduced to a woman named Raya who has certain requests at the club. She specifically asks for someone cold, emotionless & filthy, & you can’t get any more emotionless & detached than Drew. She’s told about Drew but is shocked by how good looking he is when she meets him. She’s extremely attracted to him but wants a night to forget with no risk of feelings. He’s come highly recommended, & she’s ready to see all her deepest desires come to life.

When Drew lays eyes on the stunning Raya he’s intrigued by the newbie. He quickly realizes he’s going to thoroughly enjoy fulfilling her requests. Once he touches her, he soon figures out there is something different about her. It’s electric between them. He’s so lost in the moment with her & he finds himself wanting to know her story. She’s beautiful, but there’s a sadness about her. She’s a mystery he wants to solve.


-“I can blow your mind.”

-“You ready to get completely lost?”

-Raya radiates a soft, almost innocent sexiness that I’ve never encountered before. It’s a powerful quality she holds, and it’s even sexier because she doesn’t realize she has it.

-She is just effortlessly sexy, and that’s just one of the things I find so attractive about her. As well as her brutal beauty and the fact that she’s found feelings in me that I never knew existed.


Suddenly Drew’s having feelings of possession that are unsettling. Raya’s become a complication he doesn’t need, but he can’t control how badly he wants her. He was content with his life until this incredible woman. They both feel a strong connection they can’t deny.

Raya was t supposed to get attached to Drew. It was sex and nothing more. Now she is falling for Drew & wondering if they could be more.

This was a sexy fun novella that takes us back to the This Man series. It’s about Jesse’s friend Drew, but we also get some scenes with all the gang. It was a super sexy fabulous read!

*****FOUR STARS*****

The burning ache within me amplifies, and my head swims with the memory of every second I had her restrained and at my mercy. But somehow, now I realize that it was entirely me at her mercy. Just like now. This woman is stirring something in me.



THIS MAN is one of my all-time favorite series and Jesse Ward will always top the charts as one of my most beloved book boyfriends. I was more than thrilled when I got to spend a little more time with The Lord of the Manor in ALL I AM: DREW’s STORY. I don’t think Drew ever really had a chance to shine before but now in his own book he comes across as extremely sexy and dominant. He’s the last of his friends to remain single and Drew has no plans of ever changing his status. Sometimes plans don’t always work out the way people want them to.

Drew still frequents a sex club at least once a week to get his physical needs satiated. A woman asks to be set up with him because she heard he was the best and that he’s cold and emotionless, which is exactly what she needs. The moment Drew and Raya meet, they both feel something intense stirring between them. Their first time together is better than anything they’ve ever experienced, but they go their separate ways because it was only meant to be a one-time thing. By happy coincidence, Raya ends up being one of Drew’s potential clients. He owns a real estate firm and Raya is looking to sell her home and she’ll be leaving the country once it is sold. There’s something about the look in Raya’s eyes that has Drew wanting to learn more. He’s unexplainably drawn to her and can’t seem to get her out of his mind. This tickles his friends because they know a thing or two about falling hopelessly in love and are both thrilled to see that cupid’s arrow has finally got a hold of Drew.



Will Drew get his head on straight and fight for his chance at love? Or will it all slip through his fingertips when secrets are revealed?
