Blog Tour: Jodi Ellen Malpas's "All I am (This Man #3.5)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Jodi Ellen Malpas's "All I Am (This Man #3.5)."


Synopsis: 

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?

Review-Jo 

The "This Man" series is one of my all time favourites, so when Jodi announced Drew's novella, I was thrilled. I couldn't wait to get started and Jodi did not disappoint. "All I Am" was a deliciously sexy read and Drew was another alpha to fall head over heels for. I have yet to find a book boyfriend from this author that I can resist. 

Drew was truly gorgeous. I just loved everything about him, especially how lost he became when Raya entered his life. Raya turned his life upside down and poor Drew was left utterly helpless, unable to work out what to do for the best and always messing things up. I couldn't help but chuckle at his actions. I also loved Drew's sweet daughter, Georgia. Their scenes together melted my heart scoring Drew another tick in the box for me. 

Another treat from this book was catching up with Jesse, Ava and the gang. It made me realise how much I have missed this series and another reread just might be required. Don't worry if you have yet to read the "This Man" series, this novella can easily be read as a standalone and also as an introduction to the characters. In my opinion, it's a must read series so I would highly recommend making some time to become acquainted with the beautiful Jesse Ward. Trust me, you won't regret it. 

Jodi has managed to pack in a brilliant story along with a whole lot of hotness into this quick read. It is well worth the one-click. 

"All I Am" gets 4 hearts from me.



Excerpt:

‘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.

About Jodi:

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.

THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.
