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.

ARC recevied for an honest review

Mon Dieu! I am back with the three P's and I don't ever want to leave!

You will need to have read Robbie before picking up Julien, because the story follows right from the end of the first book.  Plus, you don't want to miss any of the UST between Robbie, Julien and Priest.

I really liked that this is more of the "getting to know you" stage of their relationship.  We have gone through the attraction and lust, now this is the falling in love part.

Le sigh.

There is so much more to my guys than we ever thought, therefore Julien delves more into the pasts of our tempting trio than Robbie did.

I really, really loved seeing Robbie come out of his shell - well, more than His Fabulousness already was.  We see behind the guyliner and the amazing clothes to the man to the real guy.  I never though I could love Monsiuer Bianchi anymore than I already did.

We also have some great set up for Priest's story too.

Priest... forgive me Father for I have sinned.  I have had lustful thought over you, your husband and your boyfriend!

I am really looking forward to Priest's book - please dont' make me wait too long!

We're back in the world of our darlings Logan & Tate! Well, not really - this is a spin-off thingy, but we all met and fell for Robbie & Priest & Julien in the Temptation series ....
If you haven't read TRY & TAKE & TRUST & TEASE & TATE  & TRUE you should definitely do it!!
And obviously you should have read CONFESSIONS: ROBBIE - because this is a trilogy which began with Robbie's book!



Book #1 ended with Robbie ringing the doorbell, ready to move in with his two boyfriends Julien and Priest.

Tonight he'd come to these men - his men - and as he fell asleep beside them, he knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be. Robbie Bianchi was finally home.

But he couldn't have come at a worse time. Priest just got a call about his past. And Julien is also preoccupied with something in his past. But our darling Robbie is just the right person those two need to calm down a bit and not go crazy in these hard times.




Finally book #2!

I really enjoyed reading this book.
Those 3 boys are just sooo adorable! All three completely different but so perfect for each other!
And this time Robbie has his hands full with Priest and Julien. More Julien though. He's in a bad, sad, sorrowful, grieving, gulity mood at the moment because his sister's death's 'anniversary' is coming closer. And he's not dealing well. Just like every year since she died eight years ago. But Robbie is an immense help for Priest. Robbie knows just what to do and say and not ask in those situations. Adorable!

Julien cooks, you worry about the important stuff, and I make everything sparkle.

And next to Julien's problems, Priest's problems - which were already mentioned at the end of book 1 - they're almost here now. We'll learn more about it in book #3. And to say Robbie is a bit shocked about it all, is a huge understatement!
CAN'T WAIT to read that last book!!!!

OK, what can I say to wrap this review up?
JULIEN was a VERRRY EROTIC and adorable and funny and moving story.
But our three boys will have a LOT more to deal with in the next book!

The tiny little things that still bother me - but that's just me. The fact that the book is not written in the first person POV! With all those male I's HE's HIM's HIS's - it's so complicated sometimes to understand who is saying or thinking something!

Also - still not a fan of Priest's hair color!!! And he's my favorite of those 3 guys. But the hair!!! Ugh!


Book #1

if you haven't read Ella's TEMPTATION series yet - DO IT NOW!! Preferably before reading this one☺ We'll meet Robbie there for the first time! (free on kindle unlimited!)
