I am complex.
My love is all-encompassing.
And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule:
Don’t mess with what’s mine.

Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy. The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear the very ground he walked on. Including me, the day I realized that ground ran red with blood.

At age eighteen, I became Priest.

I really love this series, but this is the book I have been looking foward to reading most. I have been intrigued by Priest, ever since he made an appearance in the "Temptation"  series. I am happy to say that it did not disappoint ;) I am also happy to say that...this wasn't the last book in the series, like I expected it to be...there will be one more !!

This was good but I'm disappointed in the ending that we have to wait until the next book for their HEA. Although it wasn't a cliffhanger, I wanted a book done in this.

This will be a spoiler free review. Suffice it to say, this book is all I expected and then a bit more.

It's only not a total five star read for me because I wanted more of the three of them together but there is a final epilogue entry to come which will round out this series in Book Four.

In this one we get a few flashbacks which help fill in the life of Joel Priestley and what brought him to the point in his life which this series has focused on - a lawyer married to a hot and successful French

I was eagerly awaiting Priest's book. Probably a bit too much, as I didn't love this one as much as I wanted to. But I still liked it. Quite a bit.

I'd say the romance takes a tad bit of back seat in this one. Yet at the same time, Robbie, Julien and Priest do move forward quite a bit as partners.

I wasn't super surprised about how things played out with Priest's dad, etc.

And I'll be honest and say I'm a tad disappointed we still don't have their HEA. Yes, we're close and things ende

In Confessions: Priest shit gets real. Priest's past catches up with him and he has his hands full protecting the two men he loves so much. But first he has to settle things with Robbie, who we left at the end of Julien's book feeling upset and confused. I thought the way Julien and Joel brought him around was so endearingly awkward and funny that I fell in love with them all over again.

I think we all secretly want a Priest in our life. Somebody who loves so fe

We're back in the world of our darlings Robbie, Julien & Priest.

You need to read the first 2 books before reading this one. And while you're at it - please read the whole Temptation series too - because we already met these 3 in Logan & Tate's series - especially Robbie!


The last book ended with a TV report about Priest's father. An infamous mega psycho criminal who is supposed to get out of prison on parole. Robbie didn't know that THE Jimmy Donovan was Priest's dad - Pries

Ahhh Priest - so much grit and persistence holding his spirit together. This is Priests story and as expected was every bit as enticing as I thought it would be. His love for Julien & Robbie was beyond strong and the three of them finally cemented their triad. No spoilers here so you need to read the trials and tribulations of Priest and his loves. Of course nothing in life is easy and poor Priest really was a reflection of that. My only hope is the final book is one long honeymoon of sorts ...more

"The name that goes with this face," Robbie said. "It doesn't matter to me half as much as the person this face belongs to." It wasn't often Priest was caught off guard, but he felt as though the breath has been knocked right out of him.

I freaking loved almost everything about this book. I can definitely say Priest's book was my favorite out of the three! The book opened up right where we left off in Julien's book with that ridiculous cliffhanger. Robbie just found out Priest is the son of thi

Priest! Robbie! Julien! Quite possibly the best threesome I have ever read about? Possibly! The passion, love, commitment between these three is like none other, they are equals and when things come up they are determined to talk it out and make things work. These three are total End Game and UGH so delicious to read about!

I’d been looking forward to Priest’s story so much and it had a lot to live up to after Julien and Robbie’s books. It didn’t disappoint.

I knew this one would hit me right where it hurts because Joel Priestley is the caregiver in this relationship, but one with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He’s the nurturer; hell, he hardly ever sleeps, he just sits in that chair and watches over Julien and Robbie with a steady supply of emotional support and an all-consuming devotion. God help anyon

I was a little bored with this one, Fam. I found it predictable and I skimmed stuff. Robbie has a job at home and I really wanted to see some of that. I think the author remembered that part about 3/4 of the way through and it was nothing. I had expectations and maybe that’s my fault. I’ll still read the next one.

Priest, the third book of the series brought us back to the threesome Robbie, Julien and Priest. In this instalment, the focus in on Priest's story arc, his background and the drama that surround them when his past came back to haunt him.

The focal point of the series is always the relationship between the three of them and there isn't any lack of passion and emotion here. With the continuation from previous book, Robbie was shocked to find out about Priest's secret and it throw a little kink in

Hmm, how to review this without spoilers . . .

This book is sort of in two parts. The first wraps up the way things were left at the end of Julien, and is more focused on the intricacies and complications of making a relationship work between three people, about trust and letting down walls and giving and accepting love. We get to see several flashbacks that help us understand more about Priest, as well as several fun moments from his relationship with Julien.

The second part is more action-driven

Okay, well it is official...Priest is still my favorite character. Sorry Robbie, Julien, Logan, and even my sweet Tate. I am fascinated by this complex, compelling man that we have seen change from stoic, antagonistic, and mysterious to vulnerable and loving. He is intense and haunted by demons. But he is a protector, strong, and devoted. And underneath that serious exterior, he also has a witty sense of humor.

His past was tragic. His burdens have been heavy. He struggled with feeling

You will need to have read both Robbie and Julien before diving in to Priest - and you wouldn't want to miss any of their hotness anyways!

Priest continues right where Julien left off (I did go back and read the last couple of chapters of Julien to refresh my bookzheimerish brain) and things.

This is the story of the trio that I have been waiting on forever!!! I have been intrigued by Joel Priestley since we first met him back in the Temptation series, and Ms Frank

Note: An ARC was provided by the author. The full review can be read on Dog-Eared Daydreams.

Priest picks up immediately where Julien left off, and as far as Joel Priestley is concerned, he knows he made a mistake holding off on telling Robbie Bianchi the truth behind his identity and his past. Priest's husband believes all Robbie needs is time to wrap his head around what he just found out, but maybe it's wishful thinking on Julien's part. Robbie's fallen for his two boyfriends, but he can't hel

Priest, the man, is the shit. But this book was a little short and underwhelming compared to the buildup. I still like these 3 men together spoilers. So I'll just say that while I skimmed a lot of the sex scenes (Gasp! Shock, horror!!!) I did have my pulse racing during the ending.

And there's going to be another book. *half-hearted woohoo* So all the stuff that was "off-page" or gently steered away from in this one is likely going to be dragged out for a final HEA.

I have been a fan of Ella Frank's writing ever since I read Try. I feel in love with Logan and Tate and when I hear that the Confessions Series was going to be released I was just as excited. I absolutely loved Robbie and then Priest and Julien entered the mix and made all the more better. Ella has a way with words and grabbing the readers attention in just a few short paragraphs and sucking you in until the very end. Every story is a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride, one filled with plen ...more

After I finished Priest by Ella Frank, I was rendered speechless. Ella gave me more then I could ever have asked for within this book and this series. I am overwhelmed with the amount of love I feel for The Princess, The Prick and The Priest... They are truly magical. The perfect trifecta.

I was absolutely thrilled to read book three, Confessions Series. I’m so excited to enjoy this next most fabulous sexual tale. This story of the man called the Priest!

His name was originally Joel Alexander Donovan. He has the nicest sports car ever and has a husband named, Julian. Priest is a strong forceful man who often suffers with persecution from his past which can cause jealousy in his organised life with work and play. Although he still dreams of a time of

I knew Priest’s story was going to shred me, and it did. What he went through as a child tore me up. Jimmy was just an evil piece of shit and deserved a slow death. So this book picks up where Julien’s ended and I think that Robbie’s reaction was way OTT. He acted like Joel was the evil one and not the innocent son of one. And when did Joel even have time to tell him his backstory? They just came off of Juliens. But I’m glad that it didn’t get too drawn out and he came to his senses, though he d ...more

Priest. His name deserves to be a one word sentence. He's the stoic one in the relationship but secretly may be the most vulnerable one. However, I'm getting a head of myself.

Priest is the third installment in the Confessions Series and it delivers one heck of a punch. When Priest's past brings danger, Priest is forced to fight for those he loves. His relationship with Julian and Robbie is often mentioned as non traditional but I couldn't have imaged it play out any different that it has. Every
