Book Review: Robbie by Ella Frank


Relationships are complex.
Love ever-changing.
And when it comes to rules of the heart,
they were made to be broken…

That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.
Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.

No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.

But trouble was nothing new.

Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:
If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.

And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

I tumbled down the rabbit hole with Robbie's confessions. I adored the Temptation Series and couldn't wait to get my hands on Robbie. I was immediately sucked in and I found myself taking a breath every couple of chapter. I did not want the story to end. There's enough electricity in this book to power a city.  

Yes, the story develops into a polyamous relationship however the three involved are so much more. 

While drowning away his loneliness, Robert Antonio Bianchi, Robbie, makes a fateful decision to go forward with the Worst Idea Ever and call Julien Thornton. Why is the worst idea ever? Well, Julien Thornton, the Prick from Chef Master, is married to the ever-so-serious Joel Priestley, the priest (FYI just a nickname).  Robbie doesn't even like the priest, he's his worst enemy. However, in his lonely, drunken haze he calls anyway. 

Julien and Joel had hoped that Robbie would call. They believe that Robbie could be their light to their dark. Julien and Joel are seeking someone to join them and balance them out. They both have baggage that weighs them down and Robbie has a way of lifting their spirits. 

There's a power exchange element to the story that is well developed.  It brings a different feel to the relationship. I loved it. Not many author's can nail the concept but Ella Frank hit the nail on the head. 

Encore! Encore! I shout at the top of my lungs. And at last, yes there will be an encore. Robbie is book 1 of 3. The story does end in a cliffhanger but it is very worth the read! 5 stars!
