If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

 

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

 

Her anger is...arousing.

 

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me...well, you know.

 

If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.

I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.

 

I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”

 

They say even rich men don't always get what they want,

but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

 

Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?

 

 

She doesn't even know how to play.

 

 

BANNER

 

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

 

One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.

 

I've moved on.

 

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

 

 

Anything they can do, I have done better.

 

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

 

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

 

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

 

I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

 

Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.

 

But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

Blog Tour w/Review - Julien

SBPRBANNER-Julien-bT.jpg

 

Confessions: Julien, book two in the steamy contemporary MMM Confessions Series from Ella Frank, is available NOW!

 

 

Confessions JULIEN AMAZON copy.jpeg

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

Chapter One

 

CONFESSION

 

 

Those who are meant to be yours will always find you. “WE MEET again, Mr. Thornton.” A shiver of awareness raced up Julien Thornton’s spine as he stood in the jail cell of a downtown L.A. police station where he’d been thrown around an hour ago for public intoxication. He didn’t need to turn to know who was on the opposite side of those steel bars. That voice was the one he’d been hoping to hear when he’d made his “one call” and left a message after a generic voicemail. That voice? It had been on his mind since the last time he’d heard it, nearly two weeks earlier when he’d met—and attempted to steal the car of—a man who called himself Priest.

 

Julien pivoted on his heels, and when he did, he realized that he’d grossly underestimated the impact that Joel Priestley had had on him the first time around. Oui, he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about him, that was true, and oui, he might’ve purposely provoked the police officer tonight hoping he’d end up needing a lawyer. But Dieu, he’d forgotten the way Priest made his body respond. Like an inferno was licking through his veins. With auburn hair, stormy eyes, and a presence that Julien gravitated toward like a magnetic force, he didn’t think anything could prepare a person for the powerful energy Priest exuded. Not to mention that cool, judgmental stare of his. But Julien had no one to blame for that judgment but himself. Maybe if they didn’t always meet at the end of one of his week-long benders, he could have the upper hand with this man for once. And wouldn’t that be délicieux, he thought, as he looked at the lawyer who’d dropped him home two weeks before, instead of at the police station like he’d originally threatened. Priest was as put together now, at three in the morning, as he had been that afternoon in the alley. Suited up in a tailored navy number that framed his broad shoulders and emphasized the rich color of his hair, he looked sharp, controlled, and dangerous to Julien’s already unstable state of mind as he stood there sizing him up with an unreadable expression.

 

“I’m curious,” Priest finally said, as he clasped his hands behind his back and took a step closer to the cell where Julien had spent most of the night sobering up. “Did you not understand me the last time we spoke?”

 

Julien clenched his jaw and wondered if Priest realized how condescending he sounded when he spoke—or just how much it turned Julien on. “Non. I understood just fine.”

 

“Then what part of ‘I won’t be so lenient next time’ made you think that calling me to bail you out of here was a good idea?” Julien was still trying to work that out himself, but thought it might have something to do with the fact that he was drawn to this man. There was something about Priest that made him feel alive, when all he’d felt for months now was dead inside.

 

When Julien didn’t respond, Priest cocked his head, studying him closely, the disapproval rolling off him in waves. “Are you that hard up for a date that this was the only way you could think to get one?”

 

Putain, the man was arrogant. But for reasons Julien couldn’t explain, that seemed to make him all the more appealing. “You’re the one who gave me your card the last time we met. Perhaps it’s you who are hard up for a date, monsieur. Giving your number out to—”

 

“Criminals?” Priest frowned. “No. That’s called smart business acumen, considering I’m a criminal attorney.”

 

Julien scoffed. “I’m hardly a criminal.”

 

“Really?” Priest said, and took his time examining the six-by-eight space Julien currently stood in. He then leaned forward and said in a lowered voice, “Your current situation tells a different kind of story.”

 

Despite his “current situation,” and the reason he’d gotten himself into it, Julien felt his lips curve, and he realized exactly why he was drawn to Priest. He possessed the one thing that Julien had been looking for—the ability to take his mind off the black hole his life had become. “Maybe it’s le destin.”

 

“And what does that mean? Destiny?” Priest straightened and brought his arm around to check the time. “I doubt destiny has anything to do with it. A more likely scenario is that I was your only option.”

 

“Even if that’s true,” Julien said as he wrapped his fingers around the bars, “you came anyway.”

 

“As I said before, it’s my job.”

 

“At three in the morning?”

 

“At any hour of the morning,” Priest said, and then looked down the hallway that was devoid of anything other than dreary off-white tiles and horribly bright fluorescent lighting. “I’m going to go and see if I can get you out, and then you and I are going to have a talk.”

 

Something about the way Priest said you and I made Julien’s pulse race, and as Priest went to walk away, Julien whispered, “J’ai vraiment hâte,” and the ever-so-serious lawyer stopped in his tracks and looked back. This time when those eyes roamed over Julien, his breath caught. There was nothing cool about that stare now. There was heat, interest, and an intensity that made Julien’s fingers tighten around the bars before Priest cut the connection and walked away.

 

Julien watched him go until he disappeared around the end of the hall, and then he released his breath on a rush. Merde. He’d never been so attracted to someone in all his life, and as he stood there waiting for Priest to save him yet again, Julien knew he needed to stop what he was thinking. There was no way in hell he deserved someone like that. Non, no way at all. That didn’t, however, stop him from counting down the minutes until Priest returned to him…

Julien (Confessions #2)Julien by Ella Frank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Confessions series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Julien has past that still haunts him. The family parts, the career decisions, and more. Now, with his relationships with Priest & Robbie this year may have a silver lining in it. Now, if only he can find it before he loses all that he has gained.

This book moves quickly. The story is so compelling, both with the relationships and the pain from before that must be overcome. I love watching these characters come together and learn to be in sync. I cannot wait to see the next installment about Priest!

This Time Around

by Stacey Lynn

A Love in the Heartland Novel

Release Date: April 10th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

ThisTimeAround-StaceyLynn-Amazon_1

 

Cooper Hawke was everything I didn’t need. Rich and famous, and a high-profile actor, he lived a life of luxury while my life had always been much more simple.

 

Yet when he showed up at my cattle ranch in Kansas, he gave me everything I didn’t think I wanted again.

 

His marriage was over and he was lost.

 

I was still barely surviving in my grief after my husband’s sudden death.

 

As hard as I tried to keep him out, he slipped past my defenses, and slowly, a connection grew between us I could no longer deny.

 

But this time around, we were on borrowed time. Because Cooper still had his real life waiting for him back in Hollywood.

“What are you doing here?” I wrapped the robe around my waist, tightened the knot.
Goddamn it! He wasn’t supposed to see this.

 

“Couldn’t sleep?”

 

That was what he asked. The urge to scream at him, to unleash holy terror for putting the idea into my head and making me feel, clawed at my throat. “No. Why are you in my room?”

 

“Because I couldn’t sleep on the couch thinking of you and then I started hearing all this racket like the ceiling was going to cave in on my head and thought I should come check on you.”

 

My brain must have malfunctioned. I must have skipped some words, rearranged them in the wrong order. He didn’t say what it sounded like.

 

“What?”

 

He pinned me with a look. It stole the breath from my lungs. “You heard me.”

 

Shit.

 

“Yeah, shit.”

 

I slammed my mouth closed. If words were slipping out, when I didn’t mean them to, it was best to be quiet.

 

“Come out of the closet, Rebecca.”

 

He held out his hand. I ignored it.

 

I couldn’t breathe or move or focus.

 

He was standing outside my closet, and he was naked.

 

Not naked, naked. Mostly naked. He’d taken off the pants and shirt I’d given him and all he had on was a pair of black boxer briefs.

 

Skin-tight boxer briefs.

 

That showed every outline of him. And there was a lot of him to see.

 

My eyes darted to the side of the closet I’d swiped clean. Tomorrow, I’d bleach my eyes to erase that visual.

 

“Rebecca.”

 

“I’m fine here.”

 

He laughed low and slow, beautiful and over too quickly. I was not moving.

 

“You don’t come out, I’m coming in there to get you.”

 

No way in hell was he touching me. Not dressed like that.

 

I stepped over the bucket of shoes at my feet and stepped into the room. He moved back, giving me space and crossed his arms over his chest.

 

It hid nothing. I couldn’t find a place to focus on.

 

I was losing my mind. It had to be sleep deprivation. I looked to my bed and ruffled covers which made me think of…

 

Nope. Not going there. I stared at the wall. It was cream and void of any decorations or photos. It was safe.

 

Finally, I breathed. He stood there, watching me, I felt it like I felt my skin crawling from his inspection.

 

“Want to talk about this?” he asked.

 

Nope. I didn’t. I didn’t want to say a single word to Cooper Hawke. The man in underwear in my bedroom.

 

I crossed my arms over my stomach. Uncrossed them. “No.” My hands went to my hair and I untangled my hair tie, shoving my hands back into my hair and re-fixing the messy knot. “I don’t want to talk about it.”

 

“I might be able to help, you know. It’s not like I haven’t stood in a closet, wanting to do the exact same thing you’ve just done.”

 

“You can’t help me.”

 

He stepped closer. I shuffled back. He moved again. I retreated. He was getting closer when he needed to move back.

 

“Cooper,” I said, “Please. I need to be alone.”

 

“I thought we were friends.”

 

“What?” My gaze jumped to him, fell. Tight, tanned skin and black boxer briefs. A trail of hair from his bellybutton that disappeared beneath those briefs burned into my retinas. I squeezed my eyes closed. A futile attempt to erase that pretty, pretty sight.

 

“I thought we were friends,” he repeated.

 

I forced my eyes open and choked out, “We are.”

 

His full lips quirked into a grin. I knew that look. He had it downstairs. I did not like that look. Not one little bit. “Friends help each other, don’t they?”

 

“Friends respect what the other person wants and needs.”

 

I scooted away from him again and bumped into the wall next to my closet.

 

He took one more step toward me. Slowly. Like he’d done downstairs, allowing me time to move away, allowing me time to see his intention. My head screamed to move out of the way while my body shouted stay right where you are.

 

My body sucked.

 

He was in front of me, not touching me. Far enough away where he was in no danger of touching me.

 

I still wanted him to touch me.

 

His hand raised and he settled it on the wall above my shoulder. And I could smell him.

 

“Cooper. Why are you here?”

 

He didn’t even blink. “Because I want to help you.”


“You can’t.”


“I can try.”
