“I’m scared I’ll never feel this again with anyone else,” I whisper.
He squeezes my hands. “I’m scared you will.” 

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…

This was the first New Adult book that I’ve read and Confess’ cover was enough for me to pick it out of the shelf when I had spare money and decided to treat myself with a new book! I can honestly say this cover plus its story was a beautiful combination. I like how the characters’ lives were very similar to what every working person does in their everyday life. Owen (OMG) was a very artistic and liberated character compared to Auburn’s secure and timid personality.

At the start of the book Colleen Hoover addressed that the confessions listed inside were real and sent anonymously to her and as much as it made me curious, it scared me. The confessions ranged from cute to absolutely deplorable!

The plot twist was minimal but enough to change the course of the lives of not just one, but almost all the characters involved. It made me realise how one small thing can impact such a crowd!

Another thing that made me fall in love with the book was the insight that included graphics of some of Owen’s paintings. As a self-claimed art hoe, this made me squeal with excitement and read through the entire book in one sitting!

If you’re looking for a heart clenching and beautifully written book, I suggest you read this one!

“I’ll love you forever. Even when I can’t.”
