A life free from sin.
For seventeen years, I have lived and breathed those words. But there is no balm to the war inside my soul.
The mysterious beauty too lethal to taste. She’s a thief, a con, the essence of everything I loathe. Still, she lures me in with her lying eyes.
In the dark of night, she came to confess her sins, and in the light of morning, I plotted to steal her away.
She will be my ruination. My damnation. My biggest regret.
So help me, God.
A word of advice? Don’t show me your vulnerabilities because I will find a way to exploit them. I learned the hard way to take what I want from life with no regrets.
He’s one of the most hated men in America. A soulless criminal attorney. A recluse. And as of five minutes ago, my new husband.
He wants to keep my secrets and collect my tears, but he should know that a wild animal can’t be domesticated.
I don’t know how to love men. I only know how to leave them.
With everything I want.

Wow!! I was absolutely captivated from start to the words "The End"
Having read most of A. Zavarelli's books I'm a huge fan of her writing and previous books but Confess was another level altogether, I felt entranced and could not put this book down.
Confess begins with the introduction of Gypsy who is a con artist in Vegas, she's a beautiful woman who uses what she's got to get what she wants, Gypsy is a highly intelligent woman and a seductress who has just finished a big job that has earned herself and her sister who she cares for a pretty packet but when she is approached by Lucian, a lawyer who knows everything about her, including her dark past, has watched her and plans to expose all her dark secrets her only lifeline is the ultimatum he gives her.
Gypsy's life as she knows it is turned upside down. Gypsy is a woman who is a survivor and like all her jobs does what she has to do to protect herself and her sister.
They say you can't con a con man but Lucian definitely has the upper hand, what Gypsy didn't know was it was the lifeline she would never expect.
So mysterious and full of jaw-dropping surprises, I found myself saying "Wow" more than once throughout Confess.
Gypsy has no choice but to agree to the terms to protect herself and her sister and so many twists and turns happen from this point in the story. Seriously good stuff.
He leaned his forehead against mine, dark lashes softly caressing his cheeks. “Don’t fall in love with me, Gypsy.”
“Then don’t make me,” I whispered.
“I can’t love you back.”
“Because of her?”
He didn’t give me further explanation, but it didn’t matter. It felt true. And I think we both needed it to be true.
It was the only way to protect ourselves.
Lucian is a puzzle. One minute he's the bad guy, cruel even, then the next his softness is showing through the cracks.
"I lived under a life of perpetual rain until she came along, and now my life was filled with colour"
"He was an enigma. A man who essentially blackmailed me into marriage and threatened to send me to prison at every opportunity, but one who apparently concerned himself with my soul. It didn't make sense"
Confess is a highly addictive story where once you let the character's in, you just can't get enough. Lies, shocking truths, heartwarming and heartbreaking moments, danger and hot erotic moments too, Confess had everything I love that makes this an unputdownable read.
A Zavarelli blew me away with Lucian and Gypsy's story. I'm hoping for more, I'm hoping for Birdie's story next, Gypsy's sister, who had her own dark past too and carried her own secrets.
