“Don’t do that,” Henri said, as he looked at him from beneath those thick lashes. “If you want to scream, shout, or curse my name at the top of your fucking lungs…do it. Don’t you know, that’s what I’m aiming for.”
~ Confessions: Henri by Ella Frank
Good and bad. Right and wrong.
Life would be easy if things were always that simple.
That’s never been the case for Henri Boudreaux.
Son of a criminal. Ex-boyfriend to a Priest.
Henri’s made a career out of getting in trouble and avoiding the law.
So when he winds up in bed with it, he knows that things are about to get…complicated.
But what’s life without taking a few risks?
And what’s a risk without the threat of being caught?
No one’s ever accused Henri of being good man.
And Officer Craig Bailey is about to find out just how bad he can be.

Ella’s done it again! Intrigue, steam, and heart and that is only the start!!!
Henri stole my heart! I’ve loved the Confessions Series so far and I found Henri so much more mysterious, genuine and compassionate than I expected. I felt for Henri throughout the story and my heart broke for him, his past and his unrequited love for Priest. Even though Henri doesn’t come up much in the previous Confessions books I do feel you need to read the previous books to fully understand Henri’s history and his connections to Priest, Julien, and Robbie.
Henri’s background is just as sad, dangerous and messy as Preist’s and my heart broke for Henri, his missed opportunities and the life he was dealt. He was forced into a life he didn’t want or understand at such a young age. He lived in fear and when his best and only friend disappeared he had no choice but to ‘toughen up’ and carry on. He always loved Preist/Joel and having Ella write that side of Henri and his love and care for the boy he knew and the only man he loved was a wonderful but saddening thing to read. Most of the story seemed to focus on Henri’s past and his connection to Priest. I kind of wish Priest knew the extent of Henri’s love and all that he’d wanted to do for him just so Henri could have that clarity and be able to move on.
I loved the connection between Henri and Bailey and really enjoyed how Bailey challenged Henri and made him want more than he did before. I found their connection healing and really look forward to more in Bailey’s book. I hope Bailey continues to be as level headed, strong, and fair person that Henri will need as the truth comes to light and I feel they are well-matched and will help heal each other and find what they didn’t even know they were looking for.
Their connection is off the charts and while the book mainly focused on Henri’s past and their lust-filled connections, I feel there is so much more depth to be discovered. I can’t wait to see where Ella will take us next and can’t wait for more of Henri and Bailey! The cop and the bad boy with the good heart, a well-made match that’ll set the pages on fire and make you fall for the bad boy and his cop with humor and heart! I loved it!
