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?

Book Review: 5 “chained” Stars
I love Jodi Ellen Malpas (JEM) THIS MAN trilogy, so when I knew we will have Drew’s story I was BEYOND excited! It’s always gratifying to read JEM’s books, her lovely and flawless writing makes her a MUST READ author for me. Even though this was just a novella, it has all the ingredients necessary in a romance: hotness, sexiness and of course LOVE <3. In ALL I AM (THIS MAN #3.5), we have glimpses of our “Lord of the Manor”, Jesse, Ava, Sam and also Kate, but what I really love is that as happy as I was for seeing more of them, JEM gives the chance to meet this amazing, caring, sexy DILF named Drew Davies. #swoon
This book starts 8 years after the last book, THIS MAN CONFESSED (This Man, #3). Drew Davies is still single and almost 40 years old, he doesn’t date, neither does he do relationships. He doesn’t trust women, well I take that back, he only trusts his 7 years old daughter, Georgia. When he has needs, he goes to HUX (a sex club similar to “The Manor”). He has filthy and emotionless sex. So when a mystery woman asks for someone cold, filthy and emotionless, he knew he was the right guy for the job.
After all that has happened to Raya Rivers, she wants to forget, at least for a moment, she wants to not think and HUX was the solution for her, but she didn’t expect to find this gorgeous man who make her FEEL again, yes he also made her forget all as her wish but now she can’t stop thinking about him. He makes her want to feel alive again.
Drew can’t believe this woman makes him question himself. The reactions he has with her aren’t normal, not for him. He can’t stop feeling things and he doesn’t like them either. He has just one thing to focus on in his life, his daughter Georgia. And that can’t change, but Raya makes him want something he hasn’t wanted for a long time.
Drew and Raya had a strong connection that first night at HUX, both can’t deny it, but both are afraid to feel all these feelings, both are hurt and it’s hard for them to trust again. They will have to work things out if they want to have something together.
I REALLY LOVED to read this story! Drew and of course his daughter, Georgia stole my heart. #DILF. And while reading, I didn’t realize how much I missed Jesse and Ava (THIS MAN series) until I got more of their story. If you are a JEM’S fan, you will LOVE this book, it’s like going back to a place you love so much, being back with characters you cherish the most. If you are a fan of THIS MAN trilogy you MUST read this, you won’t be disappointed.
