Ipad showing the book cover of Confess by Colleen Hoover

At age twenty-one, Auburn Reed has already lost everything important to her. In her fight to rebuild her shattered life, she has her goals in sight and there is 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 chance and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is keeping a major secret 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.

To save their relationship, all Owen needs to do is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin.

“There are people you meet that you get to know, and then there are people you meet that you already know.”

Confess by Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite books by this author. I wonder how I haven’t reviewed it before! If you’re into art and a love story full of survival and hope, then is a must for you.

Auburn Reed has suffered in her short lifetime what a lot people twice her age has never experienced before. Being a teenager, she lost her first love and on top of that, got pregnant with his child. Talk about baggage…

5 years later, she’s looking for work in order to build up her life once again. She comes across an art gallery that collects random confessions from strangers and has a help wanted sign. Now this is my favorite part of the book. The artist who owns the gallery actually uses said confessions to inspire his art.

Auburn impulsively goes in and meets Owen Gentry, the handsome, successful artist. Since he had a showing that night, he really needed help with hosting people. Honestly, they instantly click and the showing was a great success. They end up finding out that they really like each other a lot.

However, they both harbor deep secrets that can really affect each other. Have in mind that this story happens in a very short period. Like a lot happens! Expect plot twists and wanting to punch people really bad.

By the way, you can appreciate Owen’s artwork within the book! Just admire the image below!
