Confess by Colleen Hoover review

About the book:

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 order to rebuild her shattered life, she must keep her goals in sight and leave no room for mistakes. She has something big -- something huge -- on the line, something for which she would risk everything. But when she walks into a mysterious Dallas art studio in search of a job, Auburn 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 secret of his own. A secret that, like hers, is worth all the struggle of keeping it close to the chest, if only to keep from turning lives upside down. When the magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

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

In CONFESS, Colleen Hoover has crafted another emotionally gripping, page-turning saga that proves without doubt why Hoover has been labeled a master storyteller and one of the strongest voices of contemporary romance/women’s fiction with “perfect pacing and characters [that] leap off the page,” (Tracey Garvis Graves).

5 holy shit stars!

I've come to the conclusion that Colleen Hoover can do no wrong. I would follow this author off a cliff with out asking a question.  Truth be told I've been doing that for a while now. When I see her name I don't even bother to read the synopsis... why? Because I don't have to... I know I'm going to read it. I have never been left unsatisfied or disappointed. Confess has such a uniqueness to it. I loved the concept of the CONFESSIONS each one touching my heart in a different way.  Auburn and Owen have such unimaginable situations that seem like the grand canyon between them and completely insurmountable. Confess does what Hoovers books always seem to make you do... FEEL. They make you feel every single emotion the characters go through. It makes you scared and unsure and so damn hopeful that you almost can't bear it. Tears .... Tears are always a sign of a book that did it's job (well you know one that has that kind of content) and Confess did its job and even earned a little overtime.
