Auburn Reed is determined to rebuild her shattered life and she has no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to become deeply attracted to the studio’s enigmatic artist, Owen Gentry.
For once, Auburn takes a chance and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is hiding a huge secret. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything Auburn loves most, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it—but can she do it?
I’m so conflicted. I read the synopsis over and can’t believe that is all it says. There is so much more to this story. The reason this book is called CONFESS is partly because Auburn and Owen both have confessions. You start out this book with no info and when you think you are finally getting some big detail that is missing from the story it comes in a way you were not expecting. I don’t want to spoil this one. I really don’t. I’m not going to get into details with you at all about the storyline because I feel like it would take away. Which is maybe why the synopsis is they way it is. Its also called Confess because Owen is an artist who paints confessions. I feel like each chapter you peel back another layer. Another layer deeper into the characters and another layer of the story becomes known to us.
I am going to tell you that it was GOOD. I couldn’t put it down. I read it pretty much in day so if you are looking for a quick weekend read, this one would be perfect. I AM going to tell you that the storyline is amazing. The way she starts the prologue and ends with Owen’s 5 years ago was so on point. I enjoyed the way she used the confessions, with Owen and Auburn and also with the art studio. She said that the confessions used were real confessions by people. I AM going to tell you that I would read this one again. *It does have adult language and sexual content in it. I would say that with this one I felt like it was just.. REAL. I felt that way with other Colleen Hoover novels. She makes you feel it. It is so real. She paints such a realistic, honest picture that it just kind of stays with you when your done reading. The way this story comes around full circle will blow your mind and make you happy. You will adore the characters and you heart will hurt with their story. It is tragic and unhappy but maybe together they will find the happiness that they both deserve. It could be fate you know.
