Robbie (Confessions #1) by Ella Frank
Relationships are complex.
And when it comes to rules of the heart,
they were made to be broken…
That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.
Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.
No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.
But trouble was nothing new.
Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:
If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.
And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.
We were introduced to Robbie Bianchi in Ella’s Temptation series as the flamboyant coffee barista and Logan’s one time bed mate. Robbie danced and sassed his way through the series and grew to become a beloved character.
Now that I have read Robbie’s book, I am flummoxed. I'm stuck with wanting to tell you every feeling and thought I had while reading, yet I don’t want to spoil all this yumminess. I hate spoilers, so I’m going to make this short and sweet.
Robbie embodies his nickname, The Princess. Head to toe, his personality shines as bright as the sun and he radiates light and warmth. It is no wonder he drew the eyes of the Prick and the Priest.
And this is where I was caught off guard. I originally saw this as a typical MMM book, all sex and no substance. Remembering this is an Ella Frank book, the substance completely outweighed the sex. While the sexiness is off the charts, it was their developing relationship that lured me in and kept me reading. These men are so completely different, yet when they are together, everything falls into place. It was an intriguing dynamic.
No one teases like Ella and it comes out in her writing, which makes her characters come to life. I am always finding myself wanting more of her storytelling and characters.
The Princess made it shine. The Prick made it delicious.
The Priest made it unholy.
As always, Ella, I want more. Coming May 2018, Confessions: Julien.
