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.

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s 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 risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is keeping some major secrets 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.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

I absolutely loved Confess by Colleen Hoover. Colleen write the most unique books that suck you in from the very first page. This book is told in alternating POV and is a standalone novel with no cliffhanger.

Auburn Reed has been through a lot in her young life and needed to get away. She moves to Dallas to start over and she will do whatever it takes to meet the goals she has set for herself. One day on her way home from work she sees a help wanted sign on an art gallery window. She responds to the ad and spends the rest of the evening helping Owen with his art show. Auburn is very intrigued by Owen and his fascinating works of art. She feels a connection with Owen but is afraid to let anyone get to close because of her past. Will she let Owen into her life or will she push him away so he doesn't find out about the secrets she is hiding?

“I’m scared I’ll never feel this again with anyone else,” I whisper.
He squeezes my hands. “I’m scared you will.”

Owen hasn't had the best life and art is what he uses as his escape. He opened an art gallery where people put their anonymous confessions in a mailbox and then he paints a picture based on the confession. He puts a help wanted ad in the window and can't believe his eyes when Auburn is the one who answers the ad. Owen has some secrets of his own but is afraid to confess them to Auburn as he afraid of the consequences. Will Owen be able to open up and confess his secrets to Auburn or will he continue keep them hidden away. Will his past come back to haunt him and destroy everything he has worked so hard for and scare away the one person that he has been searching for?

 "I could tell her how I know her. Make her realize why I have this overwhelming urge to protect her. But some secrets I’ll take to my grave, and this is definitely one of them."

I really loved the connection between Owen and Auburn. I felt that the secondary characters added lots of depth to the story line. This book took me on such an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute of it. I loved all the twists and turns the story took and I am so happy with the way it ended. This is a definite must read book by Colleen as are all of her books!!
