Publisher's Summary

A new novella in the This Man Series!

You don't need to experience 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?

Drew Davies & Raya Rivers

*****Review contains Spoilers*****

Audible review. Single POV (Drew's). Book 4 of 5 in the This Man series (this is a novella). The narrator fit the character, I did misunderstand a few of his words. The intro & finale music is unnecessary. Age gap, single father. Trigger warnings: blindfold, bondage (handcuffed to a bondage horse/feet cuffed to a spreader bar), anal play, Drew takes over from Kirk without Raya's consent.

7 years after 'This Man Confessed.' Drew (39) is a former member of The Manor (Jesse's sex club) and one of Jesse's closest friends. Drew is a current member of Hux (a seedier sex club), an estate agency owner, has a 7 year old daughter named Georgia with Coral, and a Prince Albert piercing. Drew is given Raya's info from the owner of Hux. Raya (24) goes to Hux to have sex without strings because she just wants to forget the death of her grandfather and her cheating ex-boyfriend. Raya is a sports therapist, is selling her home, was raised by her grandfather after her mom died giving birth to her and her father committed suicide afterward. Drew's daughter is the result of a drunken night with Coral who was obsessed with Jesse. Drew quickly realizes he wants more from Raya after his real estate agency is hired to sell her home. Raya plans to sell the house, travel to the places her grandfather took her, and then spread his ashes in his favorite place, Australia. Drew was keeping Georgia a secret because he doesn't have relationships. Coral's scheming reaches a new low and Raya runs. Sam & Jesse take Drew to her home where he beats Dean up. Then Sam & Jesse tane him to the airport where they steal passports and tickets for Drew & Georgia to get through security. Sadly they arrive as the flight is leaving. Drew goes home to drown his broken heart when Raya shows up, he tells her he loves her.

Epilogue: Drew, Raya & Georgia are about to take the trip Raya had planned.

Side characters: Cole Hux (owner of Hux); Sam (Drew's friend; dating Kate); Jesse (46; former owner of The Manor; 2 kids with Ava); Maddie (7; Jesse & Ava's daughter); Georgia (aka pidge; Drew & Coral's daughter); Coral (obsessed with Jesse, got pregnant trying to get him; Georgia's mom); Kate (Sam's girlfriend of 8 years); Ava (Jesse's wife); Henry & Andrea (Drew's employees); Shelby (Hux employee); Karen (member of Hux); Jacob (Jesse & Ava's son); Kirk (member of Hux; whipped Raya); Dean (Raya's ex; cheated on Raya the day after her grandfather died); Raya's grandfather (unnamed; died of a stroke); Mr Watts & Annie Ryan (real estate clients)

Phrases/quotes: "retribution fuck" (Jesse); "Their love is as potent and rich today as it was eight years ago. It was both pure and devastatingly toxic, raided by challenges, but here they are as strong as ever." JP

A good start but way too short

It's too bad that Drew's relationship didn't get even half the detail that Sam and Jessie ' s did. It could have been a whole new trilogy or at least a full length novel. There were so many important details that weren't address, for example, how Drew handled the interference and deceit of Coral. I would have liked to have be privy to the explanation Drew gave his girlfriend, about the situation. Honesty, I am rarely satisfied with any novella, they are always too short and don't allow the reader /listener to really get in to the story.

Truly A JEM!!!

Jodi does not disappoint. I love Drew's story!!! I laughed, I cried, I hated, I swooned. This is a must read or listen. It is a stand alone and can be read even if you haven't heard or read This Man Trilogy. The narration by Anthony Mark Barrow was fantastic. I hadn't heard him before but this was a great audio book if I could have gave 10 stars I would have!!!! have

Short and much needed of what happened to Drew

I LOVE ‘This Man’ series by Jodi and I bought this book because of the narrator, Anthony Mark Barrow….He did an excellent job narrating Drew and great to see Jesse and Sam involved in getting what Drew deserved. Sweet, hot and Drew and his chains and piercing…5 stars hot!!
