Blog Tour and Giveaway: Confess by Colleen Hoover

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…

My 5-Star Review

This is the story of Auburn and Owen.  And what a story it is.  This is a story that will stay with you for a long time.  It is enthralling, heartbreaking and heartwarming.  This is my second favorite book of Colleen's.  This one is right up there with Slammed.  

Auburn is just trying to survive.  She takes things one day at a time.  She works hard to build a future after her future has passed.  Things in life have not gone in her favor.  Her love passes away.  People have walked over her and taken advantage of her for their own personal gain.

Owen is the mysterious artist.  The guy with a huge heart and a lot of secrets.  He is drawn to Auburn.  They have crossed paths in the past, but he keeps that information to himself.  His new goal is to get close to Auburn, help her move forward.

These two characters have a larger connection to one another that we first realize... Well, really, we don't see the connection until later on.  I found myself trying to put the pieces together.  Never had I imagined that their crossed paths would have such a strong bond on their current relationship.  Even though they, more-so Auburn, don't see it or understand it, but they held together by that chance encounter so many years ago.

This book is beyond brilliant.  Between the real confessions, the secrets, the lies, the manipulation, the redemption... This is one of those heartfelt books that you simply cannot love.

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
