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
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 Star Review by Ashley
I am still on a high after finishing Drew's story. All I Am may have been short but it was jam packed with steam and angst and just a pinch of humor. Mini spoiler alert...there is more than one Jesse and Sam sighting! Getting to catch up with them was the cherry on top of this sexy sundae.
I tore through Drew's story. I felt for him. I wanted more for him than what he set himself up for. He has so much to give and all it took was the right person to make him realize it. Enter Raya. Fiery. Bold. Guarded. The match to Drew's spark.
Despite not wanting the closeness, these two couldn't stop the force pulling them together.
I LOVED seeing alpha Drew come out in all his glory, both in and out of the club. But what I loved more were the small moments with Georgia. That sweet girl stole the show with her innocence and joy and it showed a different side to Drew; his capacity to love.
Jodi Ellen Malpas has this way about her writing that just sucks me in and makes me a part of that world. It's a place that's very real and I easily find myself lost to it, and not wanting to leave. And I always want more of her words and her incredibly complex and wonderfully flawed characters. So, if you're a fan of The Lord of the Manor then you do not want to miss this addition to the series.
About the Author
Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.
Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi. The third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time.
With so much love, enthusiasm and a thirst for her words from her readers, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR, released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.
All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world.
Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a mojito addict, is famous for her obsession with Converse, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.
