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…
To the reader: Confessed is a standalone featuring Lucy, who readers met as the best friend in Professed. Both are stand alones and do not need to be read together. Be advised, things get super dirty in this book. The sex is explicit, and the language is rude. It’s an erotic love story with fury. Other tasters’ notes: Bobby pins. Peculiar motels. Horses. Motorcycles. Aiding and abetting. Great Smoky Mountains. New Mexico.
Nicola Rendell writes dirty, funny, erotic romance. She likes a stiff drink and a well-frosted cake. She is at an unnamed Ivy and prefers to remain mostly anonymous for professional reasons. She has a PhD in English and an MFA in Creative Writing from schools that shall not be named here. She loves to cook, sew, and play the piano. She realizes that her hobbies might make her sound like an old lady and she’s totally okay with that. She lives with her husband and her dogs. She is from Taos, New Mexico.
This story had so many elements that made it into such an incredible book. Crazy, Beautiful, emotional, passionate , heartbreaking, intense, life changing and mind blowing are just a few words I can think of when I think of “Confessed” By Nicola Rendell.
Lucy and Vince are just an opposites attract type of couple who are together due to circumstances that bring them together. They are both on the run- each for reasons that are separate and decided to hit the road together . Their lives mesh and their story begins when they go on the run and oh my god, did it get hot. He pushes her as she pushes him. They end up changing everything and all. I literally felt myself falling in love with them and when they cried, I cried and when they got mad, I was mad. Get what I mean? It was a roller coaster of emotions as many twists and turns hit them and wow the ending of the story will take you on a journey. Lucy is a sassy lady while Vince is a rough and ready alpha male. I was so in love with them as a couple and with this author after reading this book, I have immediately pre ordered her next book Prof essed . If it is as hot and heavy as this book, I cannot wait. Vince and Lucy will forever be #Con fessed
