Confessions: Julien by Ella Frank

New Release Date: June 4th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary MMM Romance

Cover Design: Hang Le

Cover Photographer: Jules Godfrey Photography

Cover Model: Jack Dutton

 

Synopsis:

 

People are complex.

Love a double-edged sword.

And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time…

 

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about.

 

To the outside world, he has it all.

A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life.

 

But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It’s a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

 

But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn’t know what he’s helping Julien to fight. He doesn’t know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister’s death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out.

 

And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did?

 

Only time will tell.

The Angry Chef - Anthony Warner

He made me cry. Honestly when I read the quote from page 245 "'A hospice patient admitted for end-of-life care said that one thing she really wanted before the end was to eat a few slices of French baguette with butter, but refused the ofer from the hospice chef as she was fearful of taking carbs that would "feed her cancer cells"' Catherine Collins RD, fellow of the British Dietetic Association." any diet that demands a terminally ill person is wrong to have something they really want to have is evil. 

Now I'm not in that situation, but I am someone who has to deal with dietary restrictions day in and day out, I'm technically gluten sensitive because I had to give up gluten before a formal diagnosis (gastroenterologist: there's healing damage there, whatever you're doing, keep at it), but I respond quickly and upsettingly to gluten present in my foodstuffs (and this has been verified but an accident or two), so on one level I'm quite happy with the fashion for gluten-free but dammit I would love good French bread, or even one dinner out where I had freedom to explore the menu more. 

Another quote that hit more for truth is "Cancer is a complex, shapeshifting disease that has staggered and confounded the best researchers for a hundred years. (p.247) and I would love to shake it in the face of the people who tell me that I asked for, ate for, lived for, the Hodgkins Lymphoma science threw into remission 15 years ago. 

This book is a mildly sweary, angry with bad science, rant about how our diets seem to have become the latest battleground for morality, how what we eat has become a heavily charged moral issue with some claiming that only by following their creed will we be purfied from this "too, too solid flesh" and achieve some sort of living purity or sainthood, freed from illness and pain, having learned the lessons of purity and wellness from the chosen few.

Yes it's a bit more sweary than some people are comfortable with but I'd say it's no more sweary than I would be if I was talking to people on the topic. There are some citations and it could do with a suggested reading list but overall I found it one of the best books on eating that I've read in a long time.

Hope
After Hours - Emjay Haze

Nick meets Alex when he comes in to the club where he is working.  He cannot help but feel the good looking guy seems sweet.  Then he finds out he is everything.

 

Alex has found himself living a good life without any happiness.  He has a lot to be grateful for, but not what he has always wanted.  When he meets a man who is following his own dreams, he second guesses where he is and where he is going.

 

This book was like a chapter out of a persons life.  I felt like I was watching it take place.  I loved the sexy times since they were full of heat.  The banter was cute, and the pace of the story was good.  These characters give us a good solid read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Yes Chef!
Yes, Chef: A Memoir - Marcus Samuelsson,Veronica Chambers

I enjoyed this a lot. I think some readers got turned off by Chef Marcus Samuelsson because he makes a lot of personal choices they would not have. But I get it, I had a lot of hard choices to make while I pushed myself forward in my career. I didn't find him heartless, I felt empathy throughout this book. 

 

What's funny is that my parents would get it. A few days after my father died, my mother looked me in the face and said so you're going back to school (I was in my senior year of college). When my father passed away I graduated from grad school, I started my first federal job three weeks later. I didn't get a chance to mourn in probably the appropriate way according to other people, but I know my parents would have understood.

 

I loved reading this memoir that's shows Samuelsson from Sweden, to Austria, France, and the United States. We don't get recipes in this book, but you get a personal look at Chef Samuelsson's personal life and his views on food and other chefs. FYI Gordon Ramsey sounds like an ass.
