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

Jodi:
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?



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars****

I ADORED Jesse lord of the manor, This Man series was one of my top favourite series back when I first started to read romance. So when I saw that Jodi has written Drew's story how can I not grab it with both hands?


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.

So what's it about?
Drew is one of Jesses best friends and while This man series you can remember him as being the lonesome character but one whom loved the pleasure and all that's involved in the club. That no longer exists but he still delves into that lifestyle and that's how he lets off steam. He is a successful owner of his business and has a family that occupy his mind except for obviously someone to love. Well that's what he thinks. He just wants the pleasure. Yet he meets someone who wants cold just whom he is, yet sometimes you just meet the right person at the right time and everything just falls into place.

I'm not going to delve much more into the plot but let's say this was a HAWTTTT and sexyyy read. Drew is Alpha as ever just the way I like it. Raya is strong, but guarded and also a very sensual character, just perfect for Drew and I loved getting to know her. I loved how bit by bit those chains became loose and they found themselves as much as each other. And lastly Jodi's writing just kept me hooked to the characters, hooked to the storyline and hooked to the sex. It was an all round perfect weekend read for me. I devoured it in hours and it was also great to be back with theses characters that I just love so much.

Enjoy Xoxo

‘What do you want, Raya?’ She steps toward me tentatively, as if she’s questioning what she’s doing. And when she reaches me, her chest pressed to mine, she gazes up at me. ‘I don’t know.’ Her eyes are wild and unsure. ‘But I know that every time we’re close, something powerful takes over. And you’re trying hard to fight it. You’re warm and cold. What are you scared of?’ ‘You.’ My mouth is on her before I can think better of it, and I’ve lifted her from her feet before my tongue breaches the seam on her lips. We should talk, but this is the only thing I know what to say right now, and when her arms circle my shoulders, her mouth opening up, inviting me in, I know she’s okay with it. I know she gets it. With one arm around her waist holding her to me and one secured on the nape of her neck, I walk to my office, my kiss deep, my blood racing, my heart bouncing off my ribcage. I set her on her feet and take the hem of her dress, pulling it up over her head, losing her lips for just a second in the process. She wrenches my shirt open, scattering buttons in the process, her hands immediately finding my skin beneath. My forward steps encourages her backwards, our kiss deepening as she unfastens my trousers and I push her knickers down her thighs. We’re all over the place, desperation getting the better of us, a mess of tongues, hands and bodies. I pull some strength from nowhere, seize her hands and break our kiss, breathing heavily. Her unsure brown eyes soon prompts me to start ridding myself of the rest of my clothes, all under her watchful gaze. Until I’m naked. ‘This wasn’t supposed to happen,’ she whispers.

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.

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.
