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 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....

This is my favorite book from this author. It was a great story and you were able to feel every emotion. Read this book and you won't be disappointed.
It is no secret that I love anything Colleen Hoover. I like to save her work for when I feel a reading slump coming on, as I always enjoy and fly through her books. I have seen where Confess was going to have a series on TV, so I knew I had to reach for this one so I could immediately start watching it once it was released (I watched the first two episodes today and it did not disappoint).I was almost in tears just from the prologue! CH just knows how to deliver and pull on your heart strings. I really like how information between both Auburn and Owen gradually gets revealed and things start coming together with the secrets and lies. I love Auburn and Owen, and my heart just hurt for them both throughout the whole book. There were so many twists and turns and I did not really see them coming! I was so angry for them both at times. I felt so many different emotions!
A quick, fun easy read. I enjoyed reading this book.
