From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, a novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.
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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Romance superstar Colleen Hoover has some of the most devoted fans ever, and with this emotionally charged drama, it’s easy to see why. Twenty-one-year-old Auburn tragically lost her first love as a teen. When she meets rising young painter Owen—who’s suffered his own share of tragedy—it could be exactly what they both need, but will their pain tear them apart? Hoover’s message is that the key to lasting love is in letting go of our most closely guarded secrets. Hoover based Owen’s paintings on the anonymous confessions of her fans and commissioned artist Danny O’Connor to paint scenes inspired by these real-life stories, which appear throughout the book. This makes Confess feel real and raw. We were moved by every minute of this bittersweet tale—and we have the empty tissue box to prove it.
Such a great story. Super easy to love and become invested to the characters. Underrated!!
