From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a new novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…
I have pretty much loved every book I've read by Colleen Hoover. With the exception of Never Never, that story just had a totally different feel for me. I'd be lying if that didn't make me nervous going into Confess, but there was no need.

Confess was like coming home. All of the feelings I'm so accustomed too in a Hoover novel, were there waiting for me. *happy sigh* 

There is just something about her characters. I fall madly in love with them. I think that was part of my issue with Never Never, because I hated those characters. But then again, she co wrote that, so the characters might not have really been her doing. 

Oh but Auburn Reed and Owen Gentry. They were perfect. Well, as perfect as they could be. I wasn't completely sold on Owen straight away, but he grew on me.. once I got to really know him. Auborn, while I loved her to death, I wanted to slap her at times. But I understood completely why she did the things she did. She didn't have much of a choice. There is always a choice, but in this instant... her motives were in the correct place. 

And guys, there is a dinger of a surprise in here. I was like... whoa! But I had some suspicions, that I shrugged off and ended up true. lol. 

Oh and the art through out the story was awesome. I love how Hoover incorporates the arts in her stories. It adds so much and I love it. 

The ending to this story was just wonderful. I was drunk of the perfection. It was just that good. Once again Hoover has stolen my heart with her words.. and I cannot wait until her next novel comes out. <3

  1. The more I read about this book, the more I know I HAVE to read it! Great review! :-)

  2. Okay, this is going on my TBR list.

  3. I have to agree about Never Never. That story was good enough for me to plow through quickly, but it didn't hit my Hoover mark. Honestly, I loved this one, but it didn't hit my mark, either. I had just a few issues with it, which you can see in my review. I do think I gave it a 4 though because I just love her writing so much. I will read anything she writes. I just hope she continues to give us stories with the different themes as she has been. Some NA is getting on my nerves with their similar themes for each book in the series. Driving me nuts. Great review!
