Confessions: Robbie (Volume 1) by Ella Frank # Audio #MMM #Review #LGBT #Contemporary #Series

Erryn reviews ‘Confessions: Robbie (Volume 1)’ by Ella Frank (Published by Ella Frank LLC., March 8, 2018 and is 296 pages).  The audiobook, narrated by Charlie David, was released May 3, 2018 and is 9 hours and 12 minutes long.

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.

My audio review:

When I read this book, I quickly fell in love with the princesse, the prick, and the priest.  As the release of Book 2 – Julien’s story – approached, the audio was released and I snapped it up.

I’ll start with what I loved about the audio – the narrator.  Charlie David always provides an enjoyable listening experience by performing solidly and reliably.  Being fluent in French and having endured some audios with truly horrific attempts at the language, I was concerned.

I needn’t have been.

His French is clear, correct and, most importantly – comprehensible.  My only wish is that when Julien was speaking English, Charlie would give him a French accent.  Given the character grew up in France, I would have hoped for it, all the while knowing it would have been an almost impossible feat.

Confession: cucumbers should only ever be eaten.

Julien and Joel are very different men.  Joel Priestly is referred to as ‘the priest’ while Julien is ‘the prick’.  The first is self-evident while I was more confused about the second.  I found Julien more playful, but sexy as fuck while he does his yoga.  Hello, hot tight ass anyone?

When Robbie’s life is thrown into a crisis, however, the prick is the one who steps up and puts his own demons aside to support and protect their princesse.  Then the priest supports Julien and he reaches his breaking point.  As Robbie can see, Julien and Joel’s marriage is very strong and he worries about just being an add-on.  That being said, when the men offer Robbie the opportunity to become closer to them – to bond to them – he leaps at the chance.

I loved the book.  I loved the audio.  I loved Julien’s book.  I am waiting with bated breath for Julien’s audio and Joel’s book.

My rating:

10/10 Points of Gold (100% Recommended) – Compares to 5/5 Stars
