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…

Yes I absolutely Love Confess more than Ugly Love! I was caught totally surprise on how much I love and enjoy Confess. I just couldn't put this book down. Mind you I really wanted too now everything about Auburn and her life that she didn't want too tell Owen when she first met him at the beginning of the book. Which I totally understand you don't want too tell your life story too a complete stranger that you just met in a new town that you just move too. I felt absolutely terrible for Auburn on what she was going through the first chapters of the book it totally broke my heart for her there was a very sad event that happen in her life. When years past after the sad event you can tell that Auburn is struggling with her life she just moved too a new state and she feels alone and she doubts about herself all the time. She has no confidence in herself at all and she thinks she can never have a better life than the one she has now. When she left an office I won't say what kind of office it was because spoiler but she left the office and she was in tears after she left the office because she new she needed another job. But when she was walking toward her apartment by miracle she find an HELP WANTED SIGN outside an art gallery. And that's where Auburn met Owen Mason Gentry that his initials is  literally OMG! Owen Owen Owen what can I say of Mister OMG he is very handsome and very successful and talented artist that has secrets of his own as well. But when he first meets Auburn he consider it was fate that the two of them met again even though he remembers who Auburn is but it was the first time Auburn met Owen. It is kept a secret on how Owen knows who Auburn is. But don't worry we do find out on how he knows Auburn mid way through the book.  But you can tell that Owen and Auburn have a real attraction and connection too each other when the first met outside his art studio. But of course problems and trouble arise for both Owen and Auburn and there are two specific  S.O.B.'s who try too separate them apart. And the two S.O.B's I am talking about is Lydia and Trey I won't say who these two jerks are because of course spoiler but the both of them are real douchbags that made poor Auburn life really hard and terrible for her. And I totally despise them so much for what they were doing to poor Auburn and Owen. But I will say the both Lydia and Trey are related and that's all I am going to say about those two idiots. But by the end of Confess Auburn outsmarted and outwits both Lydia and Trey that it was pure genius and perfect on how Auburn finally get's her Happily Every After with Owen. All and All I absolutely love and enjoy Confess so much that I can't wait too read more books by Colleen Hoover in the near feature.

  1. Sadly, I already know this book isn't for me! I haven't been able to read a Hoover book in a long time - she definitely does not write fiction for me. One of my blogger friends HATED this book, so I knew I was in the clear, by not reading Hoover's books. Sometimes, you just KNOW when an author's books in general just aren't for you. ;)

    Anyway, great review, Katiria. Happy reading!

    1. I totally understand that her books could not be for everyone. Her books is usually a hit or miss for me I did not love her Ugly Love book but I really loved her writing style. So I will continue reading her books but I will check out her books from the library from now on. Thank you for stopping by my blog Alyssa.

  2. Glad you enjoyed this one! I've only read Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and I had some mixed feelings about that one, but I definitely still want to give her other books a try. Maybe I can start with this one :)

    1. I had a lot of mix feelings with Ugly Love as well but I absolutely loved and enjoyed Confess much more. But I will always check out her books from the library since her books are always a hit or miss for me. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog Lindsey.
