Release Blitz: Confessions: Julien (Confessions Series, Book #2) by Ella Frank

SBPRBANNER-Julien-RBConfessions: Julien, book two in the steamy contemporary MMM Confessions Series from Ella Frank, is LIVE! 

Confessions JULIEN AMAZON copy

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.

4.5 Stars!

Confessions: Julien is book 2 in the series and it needs to be read after Confessions: Robbie, and if you're waiting for the series to be done before picking it up, it hopefully won't be too long now until we get Priest's story. *waits (im)patiently*

Julien is the character we knew less about going into the series. We met Robbie in Try and Priest in the PresLocke series and again in the Temptation series. Julien was a bit of a shock, since I, for one, couldn't have figured Priest would end up being married. Especially not with the way sparks flew every time he and Robbie were anywhere near, at least. As I mentioned in my review for Robbie, I was wary because menage can be tricky for me and adding a third person when there's a marriage, is even trickier. However, now after reading book 2, I can safely say Robbie is just perfect for both Julien and Priest and I am 100% on board.

But I digress, back to Julien, while he was dubbed as "The Prick", we finally saw the reason why that was. It was sad and I could see why he felt guilty about it, finding it difficult to get over it until Robbie helped him see it in some other way. My heart broke at Julien's pain and the way his parents' pushed him away from their lives.

Robbie was fabulous, as always. I loved that we're seeing that he's more than just that, though. He's deeper and more caring than I anticipated and while there was a moment in which I wanted to shake some sense into him, I have faith he'd have the chance to make up for the way he reacted. Although, really, in retrospect, his reaction was understandable.

And Priest, well, he remains my favorite and I'm very intrigued, especially with what we learned of his past in this installment. I have the feeling that his story will be the hardest to read.

The chemistry between them is undeniable and scorching and I loved how well they fit together. Fair warning, there's a scene after the halfway mark after which you might need a cold shower. Because, damn!

Overall, Confessions: Julien was an emotional, sexy, angsty and fun read. I am loving this journey Ella Frank is taking us on and can't wait to read more!
