Confess by Colleen Hoover – Review

Posted April 2, 2015 by Rory in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

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…
Confess |kənˈfes| verb [ reporting verb ]
admit or state that one has committed a crime or is at fault in some way.

What would you confess to if you were able to tell the truth anonymously? Could you let go of you deepest darkest secrets? Colleen Hoover gave her readers the chance to do just that — confess their secrets. She then took those confessions and gave life to a book that is bigger than just the words on the page.

It’s raw. It’s real. It’s you. It’s me. It’s so much more.

Hoover is known for writing emotionally charged books, Hopeless is and probably always will be one of my favorite books. It was a sobering look into the heart of abuse and the domino effect it has. Confess is a different story, a different concept all together, but no less emotionally taxing. In fact, the Prologue had me shedding the first of many tears.

Love and loss. Twists of fate and the knowledge that there is a higher purpose for everything. All the pains and triumphs have a meaning beyond their face value. The story of Auburn and Owen will both knock you down and lift you up. Four heart wrenching stars, a must read for anyone who has ever wanted more.

— My confession: I fear that one day I will wake up 
and everyone will realize I’m not worth it. —

 Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, Point of Retreat, This Girl, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Maybe Someday, Finding Cinderella, and Ugly Love. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys. Please visit
