A brand new dirty, sexy, funny standalone romance…
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…
5 ‘can you feel it in the air tonight’ STARS!!!
“Holy bear collection, Batman!”
After reading Professed, I was chomping at the bit for this book! I fell in love with Nicola’s writing, her characters, and the way that she delivered one hell of a story! Confessed is no different! This book is everything a romance novel reader could ever need in one little package! I must CONFESS – see what I did there? – I floved this book!! I could not put it down! It was laugh-out-loud funny. It was dirty and steamy. It had perfectly flawed characters that I just couldn’t get enough of! It was practically perfect!!
We have Lucy and Vince. Lucy, an heiress, is having some family troubles and decides that instead of facing them… she ‘runs’ away. Vince, a tattooed convict, is having some problems of his own and is also on the run. There truly could not have been two completely different characters! I could see it from a mile away! When they were together there were ignitions of hilariously witty banter, sparks of chemistry coming off the pages, and one amazing explosion of need for each other!
“Where’d you get the cuffs,” I ask. Her breathing quivers on the inhale. But then she says, “Your parole officer.” I almost choke on that one. “You’re pretty nasty, you know that?” “And you’re Mr. Manners.” I have to kiss her. I can’t stand it. So I chance it.”
Reading Lucy and Vince as they bring out the best of each other was amazing! She’s lived a ‘rich’ life and when by starting over, she matures. Blossoms page after page. Really finding out who she wants to be and what her dreams are. While Vince… meeting Lucy and being ultimately intimate with her shows us his hidden vulnerability. It was quite beautiful to read of this man on the run from the Russian mafia and watch Lucy soften him, ever so slightly with every turn of the pages.
“I need you.”
“You don’t know what you need, beautiful.”
“So show me, teach me.”
This book is full of scenes that are realistic and unforgettable! Wait until she tries to use a bobby pin, unconventionally!! The energy of this book never wans and the erotic words and actions between Lucy and Vince are orgasmic!! I can’t get enough of this author! You must read this book and when you’re done, read Professed, too! You will not be disappointed!!
Again, hats off to Nicola Rendell! You’ve got an exquisite talent and I can’t wait for more!!
