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…
Holy hotness. There are not enough words to describe how very much I enjoyed this book. I had read (and loved) Professed by this author before reading this book, but it is not necessary to do so.
Confessed follows the story of Lucy and Vince, characters who from a first glance are a spoiled princess and a stereotypical bad boy. However, there is nothing cliched about these two or their journey. The second these two meet you can feel the explosive sparks between them; they're a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode, and DAMN when they do?? Have a fire extinguisher at the ready because these two are on fire.
I fell hard for Vince from the second he opened his mouth. He's raw and real and hotter than hell. I'll never look at a bobby pin, or peaches, in quite the same fashion after meeting Vince.
I had met Lucy in Professed, but as I said that isn’t necessary to reading this book. I was anxious for her story and to see how she handled herself-and I was definitely not disappointed in the least. Lucy’s as determined as Vince to leave her past behind her and forge a new path, meeting Vince throws a whole wrench into her plans. Once they crash into each other, literally, I just buckled up and went along for the ride.
This book just grabbed me. There’s no other way to describe it. This story made me laugh, groan, moan and ache along with Vince and Lucy. I loved it and have gifted several copies. Highly recommend.
