Where do I even begin with Confess?! As with any Colleen Hoover book, I could tell I would be hooked by the time I’d read through the first few chapters.
I also knew right away that it was going to feel WAY too short and that I would be left wanting more.
Auburn and Owen cross paths, each dealing with their own demons. Auburn is taking it one day at a time, struggling with the fact that the key to her happiness is being withheld from her and she can only dream of holding it in her hands.
Owen, as undeniable as their connection is from the moment they meet, may end up being an obstacle to that key. Although, he’s loved her for longer than she even knows.
Owen’s family is a wreck and, by extension, so is he. He’s desperately trying to salvage his relationship with his father, but neither of them knows how to save themselves.
“I don’t feel lost in him at all, because it’s the first time I’ve ever
felt like someone truly found me.”
Although, as I predicted, I ended up wanting this novel in my life for much longer, Colleen did such a masterful job of painting this beautiful love story in such a short amount of time.
Honestly, if you don’t collapse into a sobbing mess once you read the final chapter, I’m not sure I trust you. Colleen connects every dot and ties the story together so well that I actually sat staring at my Kindle afterwards, wondering how I could possibly go on.
This, without a doubt, is a book I want to own in print.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE Confess. Buy it. Trust me.
