 McKenna possesses a unique talent of inviting readers in and painting a hazy picture that reflects the romantic backdrop of Paris. The intimate setting, the lush surroundings and the bare emotions of these two individuals feel achingly sweet and private, yet I’m entranced, not able to look away. ~ Under the Covers

In CONFESSION, we are back to Caroly’s POV and although I much prefer Didier’s, I thought McKenna picked the most suitable POV for what happens in this book. Readers finally get what they have been anticipating – Didier professes his love for Caroly and it is perfection! The rising anticipation and Caroly’s uncertainty all makes for a wonderful experience and Didier’s words are simply to die for. Achingly sweet and vulnerable, Didier bares his entire heart and the fact that Caroly is stunned and giddy makes me smile every time. I love that neither of them feels worthy of one another or that they can’t understand what the other sees desirable because that to me means there’s still so much they can learn about each other and it’s only the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

As I read this story and all the vignettes previous to this, I felt like a voyeur, a stranger looking into someone’s most intimate and private moments. McKenna possesses a unique talent of inviting readers in and painting a hazy picture that reflects the romantic backdrop of Paris. The intimate setting, the lush surroundings and the bare emotions of these two individuals feel achingly sweet and private, yet I’m entranced, not able to look away. This entire series has a certain allure that is unique and inexplicable. Caroly and Didier’s relationship is the ultimate love story and it’s not even close to being done.

CONFESSION is searing love story that is both sweet and sexy. It is Romance in all its glory. With stellar writing, well-developed characters and a very, very strong romance, this is not a series to be missed!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

    Thanks for the review! See this drives me crazy. Novellas that are more chapter books. I think that I’m going to have to wait until they are are done and read in one fell swoop.

    • Normally, I hate ones that are like that too. But with this series its different. You feel satisfied at the end of each vignette. It doesn’t end with cliffhangers or anything like that which is why this works for me well. I’m happy with it at the end of each part.

  3. Ann, you are killing me here, woman. I keep reading your reviews and keep adding to my TBR pile. I am heading over now to Amazon and clicking that button, thanks to you and your review.
    Great post!
