Author: Cara McKenna
Series: Curio #5

Released: November 21, 2012
Genres: Erotic Romance
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!

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!
