My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Full review tomorrow when my Kindle isn’t in danger of exploding from the heat!
When Robbie Bianchi appeared in Ella Frank Temptations series he was one of those side characters who caught my attention and when Joel Priestley, aka Priest came onto the scene a few books later, the sparks were electric.
The UST in this book is palpable, it oozes off each page as Robbie aka the Princess, Priest and his husband Julien aka The Prick, dance around each other and deal with the obvious elephant in the room – their attraction to each other and the desire the married couple have to invite Robbie into their bed.
That the first full blown sexual encounter (there’s other equally explosive minor incidents 😉 before it) doesn’t occur until nearly 70% into the book demonstrates perfectly how much Ella has put into developing the emotional connections between these three men as well as the lust-driven ones.
I’m not going to reveal any spoilers, this book needs to be read blind to fully appreciate the level at which each man needs something from the other. It’s not just a hot menage with three sexy blokes getting their rocks off, there is deep, painful traumas at the heart of the actions of two of them.
Robbie is glorious, Julien switches between French joie de vivre but also deep depressions but Priest is the one who has my heart, he holds so many secrets close inside that his control is kept so tight he vibrates with it.
When things finally let go, the emotional outpourings made my heart pound and the sex, well, let’s just say that did it for me too *insert hot flush gif of your choice here* as the temperature rocketed.
The cover is stunning and I can’t wait now to see what delights are on the front of Confessions: Julien when it releases in May and discover just what drives this talented and tortured Frenchman.
