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.REVIEW: I read book 1 & 2 of the This Man series by Jodi Elles Malpas and I though I didn’t finish reading the trilogy I found myself enjoying some of the characters. Having said that, I was nicely surprised by Drew story.
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?
While short Drew’s story gives us an insight into the man’s emotions and feelings. Drew as the other characters in the series felt detachment towards women and felt compelled to enjoy the pleasures of the flesh without much consequences. Sex & pleasure devout of feelings and emotion, sex without attachment and pleasure without the intimacy.
All that changed the night he met Raya, a young woman who awakens his heart. I enjoyed this short story because it gave us a great glimpse into these characters emotions. Raya like Drew only wanted pleasure without the emotion and attachment. But once these two had a taste of each other the flames and chemistry between them could not be placate.
The author did a good job showing how these characters fought to overcome pain and betrayal. While the story doesn’t go into details about how each of them was hurt and how it all happen we do learn that both Raya and Drew were hurt and that pain brought consequences.
The story is short but it comes with a punch, it has angst and detailed sex scenes that can melt your heart.
