ConfessAt 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.

I especially “got” that ending. No wait. That ending GOT ME. Stole my heart and had me sobbing. Full circle, my friends. Some sadness, lots of sweetness, plenty of romantic angst, and best if all? Hope.

I invested my heart in this book and I honestly loved the story. Like I don’t know how else to describe my feelings and how it impacted me, but Confess truly touched my soul. And I cannot wait to see those artwork. The descriptions in the book will intrigue you and leave you anticipating. So yes I’m going to pick up a copy just for that, and the fact that this book is worth spending your money on, not to mention it’s deserving of a nice spot on your bookshelf. I highly recommend!

I think this story will touch many people, some more than most, based on your own personal experiences, but it definitely isn’t for everyone, I don’t think. It’s slower than you’d expect from Hoover and, like I said, not as colorful or passionate as I’m used to seeing-No matter my previous opinions on her other stories, they are always painted so vividly for us and leave little to the imagination. I think a lot of people will feel the same way, but I guess time will tell.
