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

I absolutely loved the "Temptation" series and I have been a big fan of Robbie, since he was introduced in "Try". I loved how he loved Logan, and I enjoyed his teasing ways ,when it came to Tate. But what I really wanted for him, was to find someone to call his own.... and boy did he !!

He didn't just find someone though....he found two someones ;)

He brought the characters to life. I loved Priest's deep commanding voice 😊, Julien's French and Robbie's sassiness.

This is the best MMM Erotica romance ever.

Confession (nope, no pun): I have never read MMM. Heck I don't read MMF or MFM all that much. It's the idea of one person usually being added to an established relationship. It makes it difficult for me to believe that all partners in a three-way relationship are equally well loved and there is no imbalance and one of them is left behind, emotionally.

I haven't read Ella Frank in awhile. And while I really loved the first two books of the Temptation series, by the third I was kind of over it. The fact that it ended up being 6 books....#overkill

So, with that being said I didn't know who Robbie was. Truth be told I found him a bit bratty throughout the first 40% or so of this one. He was mouthy and ev

I doubted it would ever happen, yet here I am, shocked stupid by how much I found myself enjoying a romance that revolved around three men forming a committed polyamorous relationship.

Trust Ella Frank to be the one to knock me on my ass and win me over with a theme that previously (and repeatedly) just hasn’t proved to be “my thing.”

She made me root for Robbie, Julien and Priest, and the burgeoning relationship they were tentatively building together here – a relationship full of open

It seems like it has been a long time since I devoured a book... this book written by Ella Frank... captured my attention and then some! I couldn’t put it down if my life depended on it! It also has been ages since I have read a m/m romance!!! “Robbie” is a m/m story and it involves three men and an unconventional situation!

Most people who know me know that I like my romance pretty staid. That doesn’t mean boring. I like it just as sexy and explicit as the next person but when it comes to a dynamic that involves more than 2 people, that doesn’t automatically float my boat. At all.

Whelp. I’m eating my own words because Ella Frank is pretty much a freaking genius. She made me accept a married couple who is very much in love with one another, made me understand why such a

This is my first Ella Frank and it sent me into the reading bat cave. There's not a much higher compliment I can give than that.

However, if you are like me and have not read the Temptation series, be prepared to be a little off kilter. Priest, Julien and Robbie seemingly were all introduced in that series and have history, which made me feel at a disadvantage. I was able to glean some but I now feel I need to backtrack and read that series to fully grasp their backstories.

Don't read this in public, guys. LOL

I've been waiting for Robbie to get his book for the longest time, since I met him in the Temptation Series. You also meet Julien and Priest in those books as well. If you've read those books you also know that this is a M/M/M series.

And I couldn't have loved this book more if I tried.

This was the unsexiest sexy book I've read in a long while.
It was trying so hard for build-up but it just felt sterile (no pun intended.)

Man 2: "Now you take off your shirt."

I loved it - loved everything about it. Robbie, Julian & Priest. This was a beautiful transition from Tate & Logan’s books and seamlessly moved into the continuing story of their lives. Robbie finally found the courage to contact Julian and both he and Priest came to collect the extremely drunk Robbie from a club. The story unfolds and the relationship develops. The chemistry was off the charts and while tame ( more often than not ) there was an edge to it which kept me reading all day. I couldn ...more

This handsome new lawyer, so arrogant but so fun and also attaching. When I saw him with Robbie: all fire and all flames I was becoming impatient to see them together! But you know if you’ve read Tate and Logan’s story that it would be so hard to “beat” them (in my heart) or to be as good as them. These two are just TOO perfect.

Full review tomorrow when my Kindle isn't in danger of exploding from the heat!

When Robbie Bianchi appeared in Ella Frank's Temptation Series he was one of those side characters who caught my attention and when Joel Priestley, aka Priest came onto the scene a few books later, the sparks were electric.

The UST in this book is palpable, it oozes off each page as Robbie aka the Princess, Priest and his husband Julien aka The Prick, dance around each other and deal with the obvious elephant in the r
**3.5 stars**

Spin-off of the Temptation series from Ella Frank, this new series is about Robbie and his lust for Julian, a cook who appeared on a TV show and that Robbie met a couple weeks ago at a party but didn’t originally pursued when he realized Julian is married to Priest, a lawyer Robbie knows but doesn’t get along with so well (although me protest too much !!).
However, Julian and Priest didn’t hide the fact that they are looking for a threesome and Robbie is intrigued.

The first book in the Confessions series was extremely HOT!!! 🔥🔥🔥

I've been super curious about Robbie's story ever since I've read the Temptation series. And this one didn't dissappoint! Joel and Julien are a perfect couple, but they needed Robbie and well they finally got him. Julien was so sexy with his French accent and easy going personality, but I was more curious about Joel Priest. He's so hard to read... I was dying for him to warm up on Robbie, and HE SO DID.

It was really hard to read this spin-off of the Temptation series without craving Logan and Tate. Maybe it would have earned more stars without that unfair comparison. As it was, the extra .5 Star I gave the book was simply because it was connected to my favorite MM couple of all time (although, Ty and Zane give them a run for the money).

As the title states, this one focuses on Robbie, who we met in Try as the saucy, flirty barista who couldn’t leave Logan alone. Now he’s grown up, g

EWWW I HATED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! which is a shame because all my GR friends seemed to love it.

I started this book 5 months ago and had to stop at chapter 10. I decided to try and get back into but it was a no go. Robbie was annoying me because he obviously liked Julien more. That’s why I have trouble with ménage because I feel like someone is always left out. I liked Priest so it just bothered me how Robbie treated him. Also I haven’t read any of the temptation series so some things confused me

OMG how cute are these three :)

When I started this book I was not sure if I will like it because I normally don't like threesomes that much. But as a lot of my GR friends reviewed Robbie this good I had to give it a try.

I am a sucker for the bad tempered guys which you not get from the beginning so Priest is it for me in this book but also Julien and Robbie himself are loveable and greatly written. You can see them in front of you while reading which for me doesn't happen often while reading.

i really fucking loved this. 9 times out of 10 i'm more excited for the side characters' relationships than i am in the main story. i guess i'm fickle like that. but when the side characters get their own series!!!! i get EXCITED. and this really didn't disappoint.

in the end of the temptation series, we get introduced to the possibility of some sort of relationship between the sweet and sassy Robbie and Julien or Joel. in the start of this

Ella Frank the creator of my fave M&M (yeah, i did it on purpose😂) couple , Logan & Tate brought another hawt sexy drama between Priest ( aka hardass lawyer Priestly), The Princess (aka Robbie) and The Prick (aka Julien Thorton), a married couple who wanted/needed a person to fulfill each of their inner missing parts, and they found it in Robert 'Robbie' Bianchi.

After reading the Temptation series, multiple times, I was definitely interested to see where Robbie, Priest and Julien would go. I wasn't a fan of Robbie in the beginning of that series but he grew on me. I began to really want him to be happy and get his HEA. I'm definitely a fan now. He's coming into his own.

I have to say, I was a little disappointed though. I know I shouldn't have even thought to compare this to Logan and Tate who are at the top of my all time favorite MM couple list, but I
