Confessions: Julien by Ella Frank

Confessions JULIEN AMAZON copy.jpeg

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.

My Review
Confessions: Julien, book two in the steamy contemporary MMM Confessions Series from Ella Frank.  Starting right where we left off with Robbie, Julien & Priest in Robbie, book one of this Confessions series.  Riddled with flashbacks to Julien’s past, this story is full of mystery, angst & steamy hot sexy times.  A new level of ‘tissues required’ emotion will have your heart reeling for these characters, broken & tortured on the inside “…not all demons were the same.”.  Connections intensify, secrets are revealed, honesty is given & trust is built, only to be threatened before it’s all said & done.  “This was it, their final piece of baggage—and it was heavy.”  Be prepared to leave yourself wide open to double the intensity that only this threesome can offer. “…there were a whole lot of “never befores” going on.” 
“There is strength in numbers. Those on the outside protecting the one within. That is us. One. Two. Three.”
My adoration for Julien- the man with “A broken heart of gold…” only increases as we learn about all he’s had to endure over the years.  While my addiction to Priest – the protector continues to intensify & I simply can’t shake the stupid smile I wear while reading Robbie – who makes everything sparkle.  I love that Ella continues to give us what we want with a few cameos from our guys from whom this series was spun.  
Looking forward to the third book in the Confessions series:
~Confessions: Priest~
“I used to be scared of storms. Until I realized with a storm you have warning. Now it’s the calm I fear.”
