ARC REVIEW : Julien (Confessions #2) by Ella Frank


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

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.

  Julien (Confessions, #2)Julien by Ella Frank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We were introduced to a three-way relationship Robbie, Julien, Priest involved earlier in Robbie. Robbie entered the relationship with the two married men with a hope that he could finally found what he's looking for, men who can fulfilled what he craved of being 'needed'.

What he didn't know and anticipated was, he also entered to a relationship with two men that keeping secrets from him even after they're involved intimately and after Robbie moved in with them.
The impulsive decision to moved in, from Robbie's side, granted him a more complicated relationship with two complicated men.

Sure the sex was guaranteed hot and what he's dreaming of. But finding out that Julien and Priest keeping secrets, is not what he's looking for. It's like, they didn't really 'serious' with him, and Robbie keep waiting on the edge, that someday, he wouldn't be needed anymore.
Was it? Or both Julien and Priest were so afraid of losing Robbie, that make them keeping it from him?
What's Robbie found out with Julien and later with Priest were sad on Julien's side, and scary on Priest side.
Could he take it and strong for the two men he started to love? Or, was it too heavy for him to take?

I had 'the slow' vibes from Julien, and how the story a little dragging from the start until 70 percent mark. Julien kept what he's afraid for for himself for too long without telling Robbie. And Priest didn't really helped here. Most part of the book still talking about their sex life and how Robbie adjusted his life with Julien and Priest and Julien's memories of his past.
The interesting part started when right around after 75 percent mark. It was the most sad and the most best part of Robbie's showed.
I liked the first book better than this one, this book of Julien felt a little slow in pace, better near the ending, and the abruptly ended with cliffhanger.
Hoping Priest's book would be more interesting, since it's going to be the ending (?) of the series, and everything reveal for Robbie to see the men he's with.

What will happen next is not a secret anymore, the mystery is, how Robbie and the two men handling what will obviously coming to them.
A little scary, but hopefully more interesting to see how Priest deal with his past and his future with Julien and Robbie.
