Publisher's summary

People are complex. Love a double-edged sword. And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time....

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about.  

To the outside world, he has it all. A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life. But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It's a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.  

But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn't know what he's helping Julien to fight. He doesn't know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister's death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out.  

And thus the question: Will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did? Only time will tell.

Like the Tumblers of a Lock Falling Into Place

Robbie..Julien..Priest.. (i.e. Ella) Do Not Disappoint. I thought Tate and Logan were the Only Couple.
and they certainly are at the top of my list..but this series is very intriguing...poignant and sensuous.. Ella has proven to be a master dreamweaver..she has set a standard that only a few achieve in MM Romance..insightful..sophisticated...intelligent..heart wrenching..and warming..glorious.. I am a voracious reader..I appreciate Ella's unique characters and how she effortlessly gets you involved..her style is anything but formulaic!! I can see that just like Logan and Tate..Robbie..Julian and Priest are going to be reread..relistened to Again and Again..because these stories are just that good!! ps Go Charlie David!!! excellent character interpretation!!!

Hold onto your heart!

Oh what a ride of emotions Ms. Frank takes us on, as we delve deeper into just who Mr. Julien Thornton is and what/who it is that molded him into the person he is today. There’s a lot of pain and guilt that he’s been holding onto.
Not only do we discover the cause of Julien’s heartache, we’re starting to get a better understanding of Mr. Joel Priestly as well.

Confessions: Julien is more complex, more emotional than Robbie’s book, as the bond between Robbie, Julien, and Priest deepens. They’re really beginning to learn how to navigate this new relationship, especially Robbie, and the part each one of them plays in it becomes more apparent.

I love how comfortable Robbie has become- he’s truly found exactly where he’s supposed to be. Julien and Priest just make my heart melt when it comes to their feelings for Robbie. They are so caring and patient with him, I cannot even handle it. The way they show him, and not just tell him, how important he is to them is so touching.

Not to say there aren’t any bumps in the road, because there definitely are. There’s still a lot that these men have to handle, have to deal with, still so much to discover about themselves and each other. This book definitely brought the feels. As anxious as I am for Priest’s book I’m already sad thinking about having to say good-bye the these three.

Charlie David did another wonderful job bringing these 3 incredible characters to life! He really brought out all the emotions in this book, and it was a bit of an emotional overload at times. Really well done.

Totally loving this series!

Confession-I already read the book before the audio was available. I didn't think it could be better, but Charlie David brought this book to life! He does a phenomenal job in voicing Robbie, Julien, and Priest. You feel the emotion! Ella is a great writer to make you feel her written word, but the audio takes it to a whole other level. I will read next book Confessions: Priest first, but there is absolutely no doubt that I will also be purchasing the audio!

Amazing story. Perfect narration

I’ve read this book twice and have finished listening to the audiobook. It’s an amazing story with strong characters which only get better with the vocal skills from the incredibly talented, Charlie David.

Loved it but I want more!!!

I didn’t want it to end!!! Ella, I know you will keep these characters going in your next book. Confession: Priest...perhaps!!
I am totally in love with Robbie! I fell in love when you first introduced him with Logan and Tate. Charlie David has absolutely mastered this character. I want Robbie to be my next boyfriend but I know his heart belongs to Julien and Priest! Thank you for bringing so much joy to my life!!

Au Revoir,

Cecil

comfort read

I am not sure how many times I have listened to this series. As the narrator, Charlie David grows on me every time I listen to the book. Julian’s past is always brutal, but knowing that Robbie helps him through it makes it worth it. Confessions is one series that I will listen to all three books back-to-back when I need something to read.

Julien

This is the second book in the Confessions series. I just love the development between Robbie, Julien, and Priest. I love the depth to Julien and Priest back story. This book ends on kind of a heavy note. Things are getting serious between the three men. Just when they overcame one thing now Priest’s horrific past gets thrown their way. I have listened to this series at least three times and the emotions hit me just as hard as the first time. Charlie David did a fantastic job narrating this book.

❤️❤️❤️ But…

Ella Frank is amazing. Her men are amazing. Her narrators are not amazing. They are not the worst I’ve heard, but these men deserve the best. The Temptation and Confessions series deserve a redo by none other than the incomparable Greg Boudreaux. Yes, there are others on the Best Of list, but Greg Boudreaux/Tremblay does THE BEST foreign language accents in the MM genre.
I’d buy these all over again to hear him read these books to me.
