ARC REVIEW : Robbie (Confessions, #1) by Ella Frank

Relationships are complex.
Love ever-changing.
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.

Robbie (Confessions, #1)Robbie by Ella Frank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Adele is always right.
Sometimes love last and sometimes it just fucking hurts

This quote is quite the most memorable one in this book, and you'll find it on chapter twenty-seven. It was, in fact one of the most memorable and best scenes in this book, because, let's just be honest, Logan is quite a heart-breaker.
I started with Logan, why? Because Logan is the one who started this story, and there's no Robbie without Logan.
I never realized until later, how much Robbie wanted Logan and loved him, heartbroken by him. Damn Logan and his charm.

Robbie gave Logan his five cents was the one made me added more star for this book.

 But I was shocked to realized that after all this time, after all this years of knowing you were with him, I'd still been walking around with this misguided fantasy that one day, somehow, you would end up being mine.

Regrets only happen when you aren't brave enough to try something that scares you. I know that because I regret not feeling like I was enough for you, Because God, Logan...I loved you"

Then came Julien and Joel Priestley, and Robbie's world had change into something unbelievably beautiful. Julien and Priest were just what Robbie's need in his life, not Logan, not anyone else.

I loved how Julien and Priest put some effort to woe Robbie and made him felt respected, not just like some cheap third wheel in their marriage.
I liked the dynamic among the three of them, and how they completed each other, because after I read this, I'm pretty much sure, without Robbie, Julien and Priest won't be having a happy marriage life. Sure they love each other, there's no doubt about that, but there's one thing that only Robbie could fulfill, just what Julien told him...

"For me, it's your warmth , your smile, the happiness that radiates off you in waves. You're so passionate about things whether you're angry or excited, and that joy you have for life? It's contagious."

This book felt like a slow burn at least for me, but it wasn't. Robbie decided that he wanted Julien and Priest quite fast, considering he's already 'interested' for months with Julien and Priest.
They're all came with baggage, and I liked that Ella peeled the baggage one by one. This time Robbie's baggage, I believe, in the second book, we'll see what's really made Priest so uptight and guarded.
Actually, I felt a little deja vu about Priest, he reminds me of Tristan from Riley Hart's Broken Pieces.

I enjoyed this book, I enjoyed Robbie, Julien and Priest journey finding their happiness. It's still a long process, but I believe that they'll find it someday.
And as for the sexy times, this is Ella Frank everyone, in case you need a reminder!
