My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, (This Man #3.5)
Subject: Taming the beast.

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

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?

Fast paced story where we get to see Drew fall head first into love clutches. 

He was one of my favourite characters from the series and even though it's been a while since I read the other books I still remembered him like it was yesterday.

He was dark and detached from any type of emotions while he was in his element at the club and he is happy just the way he is. He has never once questioned his lifestyle or his choices, that's why it was so sweet to see him fall hard at Raya's feet.

She blindsided him so hard he couldn't think or work, she, her demons and secrets consumed him. 

Breaking all of his rules would seem crazy but there's no way to escape his attraction and feelings towards her. He went all caveman on her and we love every minute of it.

How can he claim something that's not even his to begin with? Seeing him battle his demons and breaking down all of his walls was a pleasure to say the least.

Raya was a peculiar character, after finishing the book I realised the author didn't tell us all that much about her, we know she has been hurt and is now seeking for a way to escape, but other than the fact that she finds drew hot, we don't know much about her feelings till the end of the book.

I loved every minute of this story!
