Winner of the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Romance
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.
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.

My eyes are so puffy from crying. Cried in the first chapter & then on the last one. So captivating & the storyline is just ACE. 🙌🏽
Beautiful written. I just wish there was more closure but other than that, AMAZING!
This is only my second book I’ve read from Hoover yet both are my favorite out of all the romance books I’ve ever read (and I’ve read thousands). This book is perfection. Once I started reading I could stop, even when I was crying about what was taking place. I was immersed into the world of Auburn and Owen and couldn’t escape. I felt all the pain, all the tension, and all the joy they encountered. How Hoover gets me to connect with the characters and feel their every emotion astounds me. This book is a must read or even reread!
This book completely touched my heart and really opened my eyes to the world of domestic abuse. Colleen’s “note from the author” at the end of the story about her mother is so heartbreaking, but shows what an incredible woman she is.
This is an amazing book wow.
