This is the second book I’ve read by Colleen Hoover and much like November 9, this is an emotionally charged book with twists at every corner.
The main characters Auburn and Owen are two people you connect with from the start. They’re both dealing with traumatic losses from their pasts. For Auburn, it’s the death of her boyfriend, and for Owen, he’s struggling with the death of his mother and brother.
From the start, their budding relationship is plagued by problems. There’s Owen’s relationship with his father, who is dealing with personal problems. Then there’s Trey, a jealous guy who stalks Auburn and Owen, trying everything he can to tear them apart.
You can feel the raw emotions Auburn and Owen go through as they deal with being kept apart, and finding the strength to overcome the obstacles of their past. I loved seeing their growth throughout the novel as they finally gain the courage to stand up for themselves.
As with the other Colleen Hoover book I read, Confess is filled with a few twists that were surprising, and added more intrigue to the novel.
Aside from the story, another nice touch is the beautiful artwork featured in the book; I thought it was fitting since Owen was an art dealer.
After reading this novel, I’ve officially become a member of the Colleen Hoover fan club and can’t wait to read more of her books.
