Bailey by Ella Frank Blog Tour


Black and white. Right and wrong.
That’s how Craig Bailey has always lived his life.
The son of a fallen, decorated police officer,
he’s had no choice but to follow the rules.
Until he met the ultimate bad boy
and decided to follow him instead.

Henri Boudreaux is everything Bailey never knew he wanted.
Mysterious, sexy, and hiding more secrets than friends.
He’s exactly the kind of man Bailey knows could break his heart.

But there’s a vulnerability to Henri that calls to Bailey.
A longing for a connection that Bailey is unable to resist.
And while Bailey has always lived his life on the straight and narrow, he is now beginning to understand that falling in love is never so black and white.

Bailey is the sixth installment in the Confessions series. You should read the books in order to completely understand the storyline.

Bailey is a continuation of Henri and Bailey's story. They met at the wedding of Henri's ex, had instant chemistry, but Henri made a hasty exit. They ran into each other again in the most unexpected way when Bailey pulled Henri over. Knowing he wouldn't get another chance even though Henri knew he probably shouldn't be interested in the cop, he couldn't help himself.

I couldn't get enough of this couple, especially the stair scene... holy HOT! I think Bailey and Henri are the perfect versions of themselves when they are together and it makes for a hot, steamy read!

This is the sixth Confessions book, but really also that series follows on from the Temptation series – which I cannot recommend highly enough. So if you have never read any of these, then you have just found a dozen wonderful books to read – what a result! This story is based on knowledge in earlier books, which I am assuming you have read.

Bailey and Henri could not resist each other after the wedding reception, but Bailey is a man who screams commitment, stability, and law abiding... not exactly the characteristics we would attach to Henri. No, he has spent a lot of his life regretting that Priest really is not his, that their deeply dark and enmeshed history was not enough. He lives on the very edge of acceptable, and his CI work brings him in contact with the very worst of humanity – as far as he can imagine Bailey ever being. But their attraction to each other seems to be stronger than good sense!

I absolutely adored this story – it was wonderful to finally see Henri find a man who can see right inside him and make him also believe that he has value. Craig Bailey is definitely that man. Ella Frank has once again given us everything we could possibly have wanted, and a whole lot more glorious goodness. It was very difficult not to just go to page one and read it all over again... but given it was 3am, I thought it best to get some sleep – but only just.

Utterly wonderful, go get yourself some of the goodness!

This is obviously not a stand-alone book. You should read the entire Confessions series and even the Temptations series to really enjoy everything to the fullest. Ella Frank is one of the few authors who can actually make me feel like I am right there in the moment and in the story living it right along with the characters. I loved this series; each book was just amazing and learning about each man in their book added more layers to their character. I hate to see this series end, but I am hopeful we will get a bonus novella or something in the future, but I look forward to future series because I am sure they will be just as awesome. Bailey and Henri were so smoking hot. I am a firm believer in opposites attract. I kept waiting for something horrible to happen or for the other shoe to drop… I will let you find out if any of that happened or not. Make sure you have a glass of ice water next to you while you read, you will get hot and you'll need to cool off.

This is a sweet and steamy read about the unlikely connection that grows between two very different men. A cop from a family of cops, Bailey has always had a strong moral compass and an uncomplicated sense of identity. In contrast, Henri’s ruthlessness and flexible morality has allowed him to survive an unthinkable childhood – and to protect the people he loved. The connection between these two is explosive, but it will take a great deal of honesty, compassion, and compromise before Bailey and Henri can make a life together.

I enjoyed the balance of romance and action in this story. Henri’s undercover work is exciting, and Bailey’s experiences are traumatic. At the same time, there are some decadent and luxurious romantic moments that keep the story light. It’s definitely a steamy read – but not necessarily as steamy as some of Ella Frank’s other books.

There is less angst in this story than in pretty much anything else I’ve read by this author. Bailey and Henri talk to each other like adults and with more than enough genuine problems, neither man has any interest in tantrums or exaggerated miscommunication. These two feel like grownups and the lack of drama between them makes them both more likeable.

One thing that did make my head spin a little was Henri’s extravagant lifestyle. For a PI who seems to spend most of his time working for a cop, readers don’t ever get an explanation for his extreme wealth. Ella Frank fans expect her men to be glamorous and wealthy – but usually we get an explanation.
