You don't need to read 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

“This woman could be my downfall. Could make me forget who I am. All I am.”

I am a HUGE fan of all things Jesse Ward and his This Man series, so when I heard a novella of one of his good pal’s Drew was coming out, I read it straight away. I only remembered a bit of Drew from Jesse’s books, but I loved getting to know him. And of course, seeing more of my Lord of the Manor!

Drew is pushing forty and the only guy in his group of friends who’s still single. He doesn’t do rel

Not sure on this one, it has been a few years since I read the 'This Man' series and fell head over heels for Jesse. It was one of the series that got me hooked on reading erotic romance. So when I saw this was out I maybe got a lot little excited and set my expectations to high.

I don't know about Drew, but I really miss Jesse...

That was what I was thinking before I started Drew's book.

So, well, hmmm. Drew. He was basically background white noise in This Man. He was there and he was not there at the same time. A good friend of Jesse that if he didn't exist in the world of The Manor, nobody would really miss him. He was not like Sam. He definetely wasn't like Jesse.

So, why would I really want to know anything about him? If he had a story to tell, it had to be spectacula

I fell in love with Jesse Ward along with hundreds of other romance readers. For me it turned into an epic series and so when I discovered a character from that series was going to have their very own novella, I waited with eager anticipation until I could dive back into the THIS MAN world.

It's a while since I read the series and hand on heart Drew's character is not one that I distinctly remember which perfectly illustrates that this sexy novella can be read as a standalone. The fact that Jess

It's been a while since I read JEM's This Man series, years in fact so I think I can be a little bit forgiven for my more senior moment when I spied this, racking my brain muttering, Drew? Drew who? And then penny dropped. Jesse's buddy with the daughter. Yes please.


If you enjoyed the series you're likely to love this little return because not only do we get to see Drew fall, but we get to see him do it surrounded by some very well-known faces. I kid you not the humour Drew, Jesse and Sam bring

"You always find something when you're not looking for it."

To be honest, I wasn't sure how I would feel about Drew's book. I didn't find him too interesting in Jesse's books so I was hoping that JEM would work her magic and she certainly did.

Drew's doing the same ol' same ol' just obviously at another club while the other boys are happy and thriving in their long term relationships. (Jesse is a hoot btw!)

Well this was a sexy morsel of a treat from Jodi. We all remember Drew from the This Man trilogy right? He was just there in the background with his mates Sam and Jesse but we didn't really get to know him as much as them. You may also remember that he enjoyed spending a lot of time at the Manor indulging in his sexual proclivities. And how can we forget that moment he found out he was going to be a father? It is a shame the mother of his child is bat shit crazy though...

This is I'd say more of a short story than a novella cause frankly there was quite a good plot in this read. It wasn't short and sweet and too sexy I really enjoyed it cause it had a good balance of everything.

Drew Davis is a 39 yo, sexy dominant who has everything he wants in life, he has a great job, a beautiful daughter and the sex club called Hux where he can quench his desire for sexual control with chains, he takes pleasure from women he beds but he also gives it back with no strings attached and that's the way he likes it, until he meets a beautiful but mysterious woman who wants his dominance for the night.

Oh, What a delightful little gem of a novella this was, I enjoyed All I Am: Drew's Story so much.
This lovely little tale by Jodi Ellen Malpas was a pleasure to indulge in.
I haven't read the rest of the series this is attached to but this really didn't matter at all.

So this is about thirty-nine-year-old Drew and Reya who is much younger and the relationship that develops between these two after connecting through HUX.

All I Am is a quick and sexy little spin off of Jodi Ellen Malpas’s wildly successful This Man series. The plot centers around Drew in this story. It’s been so long since I’ve read the trilogy that I completely forgot who Drew was at first, but there’s enough exposition that your memory will be easily refreshed. Drew is one of Jesse’s two best mates.

The novella is a bit of a thank-you gift to fans of the series. The story takes place seven years after This Man Confessed, and I must say it’s an

I have loved every single book in this series so I got a special kind of tingle when the author announced she was releasing Drew's story. Not only do I got to see more about Drew, but also a little more about JESSE & Sam.


Emotionless sex suits Drew Davis down to the ground. He doesn't have time for the complications of a relationship. It's not only that he doesn't trust women, is that his personal life has no room for anyone except Georgia, his little daught

Whatever you write Jodi is Gold!

And also what an exciting ride. Worth the wait!

And we had more than 1 snippets of Jesse!

"I’m forty-six and I’m not unreasonable.” He nods, as if agreeing with himself. “I don’t know why everyone keeps harping on like I’m some crazy ape man who has no reason.” His bottle pauses midway to his lips when he clocks me and Sam staring at him with slightly agape mouths. “I’m perfectly reasonable."

I met Drew, when he was a friend of Jesse . The #LordOfTheManor. His suave and style won me over. And now we meet him again here . He's every bit dreamy sexy now, as he was 8 years ago. What a fantastic story and what sizzling sexual chemistry between Drew and Raya. They can't be in the same room without kissing passionately or having soul stirring sex.....bound by chains and blindfolded too.

This book was completely insta-love with a quickness. Lol But I loved Drew, Raya and of course little Georgia.

I also read the teaser for The Forbidden and can't wait for it to release in August!!
