CONFESSED by NICOLA RENDELL :: REVIEW

A super hot standalone

SYNOPSIS

Lucy Burchett is the heiress to a notoriously disastrous family, and she’s left home for good. But when she runs a big, black pickup off the road, totaling it, she finds herself stuck in the middle of nowhere with the driver. He’s got a body to die for and a hair-trigger temper. Vince Russo looks like a felon, but he’s also pretty funny. He’s on the lam from the cops… and a psychopathic, Russian mob boss who wants to put his balls on a barbeque. Literally.

After a night of ill-advised cocktails and bathroom-wrecking sex, Vince just can’t get Lucy off his mind. But he’s got plans to rob her. And Lucy’s life is about to get a little bit criminal too.

But can a bad boy and a good girl really escape from their troubles together? Can they trust each other at all?

In the steady march of disasters that follow them west, they fight and they laugh. They tease and they’re tender. They’re either oil and water, or chocolate and peanut butter.

Except, they can’t run from the real world forever. And there’s a hell of a surprise in store for both of them…

***

To the reader: Confessed is a standalone featuring Lucy, who readers met as the best friend in Professed. Both are standalones and do not need to be read together. Be advised, things get super dirty in this book. The sex is explicit, and the language is rude. It’s an erotic love story with fury. Other tasters’ notes: Bobby pins. Peculiar motels. Horses. Motorcycles. Aiding and abetting. Great Smoky Mountains. New Mexico.

So in Confessed we spent a – hot flush – ride with Lucy, who is Naomi’s best friend from Professed which we read and enjoyed too. Both books can be read as standalones so if this one tickles your fancy first then read it and be swept up in one passionately intense Bonnie and Clyde style ride that’ll burn the tips of your fingers and steal your heart in the same breath.

“We’ve got a problem.”

“Do we?”

“Yeah. I had this whole plan for today. Until you ran me off the road”

“I said I was sorry.”

“Fuck sorry. There’s a new plan. I want to make some bad fucking decisions with you…”

Having read Professed then moving straight onto Confessed we definitely noticed a difference in the second book by Nicola Rendell. It had more depth and polish and she’s certainly got a knack for hot and sexy alpha males with a vulnerable side. Once again Confessed is another easy and highly entertaining read which hits the target for readers who love their erotica and feel like indulging for a couple of hours. It had us riveted that’s for sure for those very delicious reasons.

‘There’s that phrase, an awakening. I never understood that until now, but that’s what’s happening to me. I know it. I love it. I need it. That trust, no inhibitions. No shame. That’s the thing that brings tears to my eyes. In front of him, I have no shame. I can be whatever I want. Whatever I am.’

Lucy on first impression is quite the spoilt airy fairy rich girl who needs her driving licence revoked because wow…stand back! However, when circumstances change and she becomes the daughter of a wanted man up for fraud who quite frankly drops her right in it, we see a different side of her. A very very different side once she literally bangs into Vince Russo.  She’s a flighty yet adorable and sassy girl.

“Peaches, we don’t choose where we come from. We only choose where we go.”

Vince Russo…hang on while we pick ourselves up off the floor where we’ve just spent a considerable amount of time in a hot puddle. This man is the definition of tattooed bad-arse alpha male. He was LUSH! Not only that, he had real heart and was creatively talented and gifted in many many things and ways.

‘Deep in my chest I feel this rush, this need, this fucking burning desire to protect her. Even from herself, even from her bad dreams.’

We loved the characters, the story development and as far as erotica is concerned this is definitely one of those that pack a punch as it was well written, flawless in characterisation and story. Erotica with an emotional beating heart.

Now excuse us while we go look for our bobby pins…..

At a secret masked ball at Yale, Naomi Costa is literally swept off her stiletto-blistered feet by a man with a killer jawline, a perfect body, and an even-better kiss. They bust out of an emergency exit and have axis-shaking sex. He pours whiskey in her belly button and after they run out of condoms, they have to get creative. That kind of sex.
The next day, she learns that he is none other than Dr. Benjamin Beck, a brand new member of the Yale faculty and the hottest thing to happen to academia since… well, ever. She has to take his damned junior seminar to graduate, but it gets worse. He’s also her College Master: her boss, her advisor, her everything. And he’s just moved in, right downstairs.
They can’t stay away from each other. They’re either fusion or fission or both. They’re making out in libraries, hiding notes between stones, and sneaking off to nautically themed AirBnbs. Hear that sound? It’s the academic code of ethics going up in flames.
If they’re found out, he’ll lose his job and his reputation. She’ll lose her scholarship and be forced to return to the life of lobster fishing that she thought she’d escaped.
And they will be found out, yes they will.
So what the hell are they going to do?
