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.

Ang~Dirty Laundry Review
Good news, Peaches. Professed wasn’t a fluke! Nicola Rendell is the real deal as evidenced by her stellar second novel, Confessed. I loved Professed so much that I couldn’t wait to dig into Confessed, but I was a bit nervous too. What if Confessed wasn’t as great? So you can imagine my utter delight when my love for Confessed actually surpassed my love for Professed! I know! I can’t believe it either! Nicola Rendell is a seriously gifted wordsmith and storyteller. Confessed is so perfect, so del ...more

Confessed by Nicola Rendell is a captivating, consuming read that grabs you by the heart and doesn't let go.

So before I go any further I must address a huge point. One I feel you need to know before you read.. You ready?

This book is F’ING HOT! So hot, you're gonna need an ice bath. Literally, just sit in one while reading BELIEVE ME. Sheesh, some of the scenes in Confessed were ON FIY-AH! Honestly Vince and Lucy…. Hot mother effers!

Okay so, Confessed is Nicola's second release and from this d

I read these out of order, I actually read this one before I read Professed. And, let me say...I ran right out and read Professed right away. This one is THAT GOOD. Vince is amazing. I want my own Vince. But it isn't just the characters, it is the whole package of this one.

Nicola Rendell is an wonderful writer. She takes you on quite a ride with Vince and Lucy. She tosses in the Russian Mafia, horses, bobby pins, being stranded, restroom destruc

One of the best books I've read this year!! Honored to be blurbing this title!! I CAN'T wait for romance readers to get their hands on this gorgeous story!

Confessed by Nicola Rendell is that book. Romantic beyond your wildest

3.5 Stars. Vince and Lucy make sparks fly... quite literally... when they meet. While the plot is quite the stretch, it takes you on a sweet and funny ride. I'm more of a sarcastic humor type of gal, but I did find myself smiling. It's interesting how the book goes from animosity to an almost insta love pretty fast. Vince and Lucy together were seriously sexy. They complimented one another. Individually, they were very much lost and trying to find their way. The contrast adds value to the story. ...more

I saw that this book was getting A LOT of hype about it, so of course I was super intrigued and I just had to have it! And I am so glad that I got my greedy hands on it because I absolutely loved it!

We meet Lucy and Vince. Talk about opposites attract. And they certainly meet with a bang!

The two are both on the run—though for entirely different reasons. And they decide to run together. The two of them together are hot, hot, h

What an absolutely wild ride this book was! I loved it.

Hotels, restaurants and bars of America - please make sure that the sinks in your bathrooms are solid and securely attached to the walls and your beds are tightly screwed together because Vince and Lucy are gonna shake 'em.

I hate luncheon meat, I think it is the very thing that made me become a vegetarian all those years ago. Mr Burchett, you are not going to be poisoning me my dear.

I thought this book was absolutely brilliant!

Having to bite your own hand in bed as you're reading, due to shaking so much with (best you can force down) silent, hysterical laughter over and over again, as you're trying desperately not to wake your other half is probably ridiculous - but if you can't put a book down because, well, even at gone 2am, it's THAT good - then what else can you do?!!!

Fleeing the scandal of tainted meat from her family’s empire, Lucy Burchett, 23 (or 22, both ages are given), hits the road and literally another vehicle in her rush to leave her old life behind. Vince Russo, 34, is running too. A former convict with a Russian mobster on his tail, he wants to start over as well. What ensues is a road trip of adventure, hot sex, finding love, and new identities.

This is the 2nd book that I've read by Nicola Rendell. I wouldn't exactly call it a series. Each book can be read on it's own. Lucy, the h in Confessed, is the h's (Naomi) college friend from Professed. No characters(other than Lucy) from Professed were in Confessed.

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.

Confessed by Nicola Rendell

This book was really very good. I enjoyed the authors writing style and found myself utterly entranced by the characters. I could never have imagined from the beginning of the book how perfectly they would complement each other and I'm so pleased that they did while staying true to themselves!

Vince and Lucy meet when Lucy is on the run from her pampered princess life where her notorious family is facing scandal upon scandal. As a result of her phenomenal driving skill

3 “Bonnie and Clyde Style” Stars

Confessed is a sexy rom com style romance in which two people find each other when they least expect it and end up with much more than they bargained for. Lucy and Vince have a pretty cute meet-cute and then end up on a road trip together. After getting to know each other along with a few hi-jinks along the way, these two very different people find more in common than they expected. But as their pasts start to encroach on the little bubble they’ve been living in,

I received an arc of this lovely and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I got it! I read Professed and loved it so much and I knew this one would be just as good! Was I right with that assumption? Absolutely!

This book in one sentence: Well I’ll be, motherbitch is a new and glorious thing.

In a nutshell, Lucy, who is the heiress to a notoriously disastrous family, meets Vince
So once again, Nicola has created a story that you can lose yourself in. Confessed, like Professed, is written in witty
I'm swooning HARD over here...

This book was just what I needed! Nicola Rendell, watch out, you just made yourself a big FAN my friend! Vince and Lucy were just EVERYTHING! I loved how different they were and yet they gravitated to one another so quickly and so often. The con and the heiress? I mean, you just KNOW this is going to be interesting. I've never read a storyline like this and yet, I don't want to read any other kind ever again! Sexy, intense, sweet, and snarky! I LOVED everything abou

This. Book. Nicola has simply blew this book out of the water! I never knew I could love a bad boy as bad as Vince Russo. I also never knew after meeting Lucy in Rendell's debut novel "Professed", that after reading Confessed, I'd easily deem her as my new best friend and one of my all time favorite heroines!
Ah but Vince... Vince isn't just any bad boy...
He is THE Bad Boy.

That moment you realise you were so completely engrossed in the book, you forgot to update your gr status.

That never happens. Apart from when I'm devouring my new fave author's back catalogue.

This was a fantastic read. This was a standalone story about Naomi from Professed 's bestie, Lucy. It works perfectly as a standalone, but do not deprive yourself of the brilliance that is Professed, read both, immediately.

I feel quite conflicted about this book. On the one hand, I connected with both the characters Vince and Lucy. On the other hand I struggled with the relationship development direction at times.

This is the kind of book that grabs you immediately with a consuming story that's fast-paced. Lucy's life is crumbling at a exponential rate and Vince just happens to 'mark' her. Vince is described so that he draws you in. He is also a scammer but Lucy makes him think twice about his lifestyle.

Things don't start out well for Lucy Burchett. The family business is going down the toilet in a big way, she decides its time to start out alone, only to ram into a SUV and it is a ride-off. The driver, Vincent Russo, enters Lucy's life in a big way. For the next two weeks, these two go on an adventure that will have your toes curling!

There is a warning in the synopsis of this book, that it is an erotic novel, so there is plenty of sex in it, but its not repetitive like some books and the stor

This book started with a bang and ended with a bang! It was really captivating to see both Lucy and Vince deal with each other. Every chapter was thrilling. I mean you can't sit still while these characters are on run! It did take me time to get into it to know what is going on and what's happening but I am sure after two chapters I knew what is happening. I was happy, swooning and getting angry! OMG!

Nicola Rendell may be a new author but her first two books are so amazingly intense you can't hep but guzzle them both down in a single gulp! "Confessed" is one hell of a rollercoaster ride which touches the point of insanity... an adventure you'll want to follow through till the very end at the speed of light. The attraction between Vince and Lucy is carnal, primal, loving and ruthless in the very short and condensed time they have been together. You

I loved this book! I enjoyed Professed and knew I would enjoy this one, but it was better than expected. Vince is the bad boy we all dream of, tattooed, hot, & a criminal. But that all changed when Lucy crashes into him (literally). Vince was a dream boat, he gave me those gut punches

On the lam was never like this! He is running toward a new start away from crazy Russian mafia characters and a relentless detective; she is running toward starting her life over away from her father's criminal activities. From the moment they meet, after Lucy's bad driving caused Vince to crash, there is chemistry between them that is undeniable. The flirtation begins and their banter is erotic.

Unforgettable scenes fill this book. Look for the scene in the bathroom of a bar ( hilarious!), the b

It was a light comedy without any heavy complications. thats what I like in my books. too much drama is over rated but at least I know at the end of the book there would always be a cliché happy ending lol. Id love to date a Vince Russo, not to mention run away with one. He is the perfect embodiment of my dream older guy boyfriend from another dimention living in a different soul. I fell in love with him, HARD. And I cant keep thinking if there was a man like that, oh God, knock me up and never ...more
