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 that Owen is keeping some 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 learned that Colleen never disappoints me. Confess is nothing but amazing!
Auburn Mason Reed fell in love at an early age. Unfortunately, life can sometimes hurt you in a way that is hard to put the pieces back together. She was fifteen when she lost it all.
"I'll love you forever. Even when I can't."
"And I'll love you forever. Even when I shouldn't."
Six years later, she is trying to be a responsible adult. She has moved to Texas, a state that brings all the memories back, and she's in desperate need of money. When she applies for a job at an art studio she has no idea how important meeting the owner of the studio is going to change her destiny.
Owen Gentry is an artist. He paints and he seems to be doing well for himself. When he is in desperate need of help at his next showing, fate manifests itself in the form of Auburn. She's there as if he has conjured her. He feels a connection with her that he won't deny and wishes to explore. He wants to be with her but he has too many secrets he wishes to keep. In order to save what they have he has to confess first.
From the beginning of the story I was pulled to it. I won't tell you spoilers because I think everyone deserves to experience this book for what it is: An amazing journey.
The premise of the art was so different and so intriguing. I can already picture the movie in my head.
Both characters were fully developed. You can feel their pain as well as their attraction for each other and later on their love.
Another great hit by Colleen.
"And I need you to remember that anyone can make love. But I'm the only one who deserves to make love to you."
Colleen Hoover has once again written an extremely unique and intoxicating story.
Auburn and Owen both have devastating pasts that intertwine in the most beautiful way.
Auburn has just moved to Dallas. She finds herself in need of extra money and ends up passing an art studio that is hiring.
Owen owns the art studio and hires Auburn on the spot. They immediately hit it off. So alike in many ways, they agree to not discuss much about each others pasts. Situations arise that leave them both a little lost.
Honestly, Colleen Hoover books are the hardest for me to review. I feel like I’m so vague the reviews don’t even make sense.
CONFESS had such a unique storyline. I feel that the characters were perfect for each other. By the first chapter I was already crying and I never knew what was coming! Colleen Hoover is the master at writing unpredictable stories.
