“If a person truly cares about you, they’ll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.” – Colleen Hoover, ‘Confess’
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books
My Rating: *****
This book is definitely five stars all the way. Colleen Hoover has a way of really capturing the Romantic/drama genre all the while capturing your heart with each turn of the page.
‘Confess’ tells the story of Auburn Reed, a young teenager in the mist of young love with her boyfriend who is terminally ill. When her first love disappears from her life forever she doesn’t think she will ever be able to look at someone the same way again. That is until years later when she walks into an art studio advertising a job in Texas. To her surprise the art is not the only thing that intrigues her within the gallery and she soon finds herself enthralled by the artist behind it, Owen Gentry.
When Auburn puts her heart on the line once again, she soon discovers that Owen is hiding some secrets that may change the way she feels about him forever. How the past intertwines with the present may result in destruction of everything or will it strike discovery of not only herself but also her heart?
Owen doesn’t want anything to mess up what he has with Auburn but he can’t seem to stop the truth from hurting his chances. It seems all he has to do to save their relationship is confess… but will he? Owen is afraid the truth is more destructive than the actual act and bearing it all may just be the last straw.
A gripping tale of love between two people and how fate can play an important part in life. I highly suggest this book and any of Colleen Hoover’s novels. You will not be able to put them down!
