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 Owen is keeping 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…
I started this book one night saying to myself “Let´s read just a few chapters”. It didn’t happen and I stayed up until 4 am. This always happens to me when I’m reading Colleen Hoover’s books. Like always I started this thinking that I was going to be crying by the end of the book. While this was true I can also say that I started crying in the second page.
The book starts when Auburn, the main protagonist, is fifteen years-old and loses the most important thing of her life. Six years later she leaves everything behind and moves to a new city. It is here that she meets Owen, a talented artist that has an art gallery. One of the things I loved the most in this book was the concept of Owen’s art gallery “Confessions”, a gallery where scraps of paper with anonymous confessions are left. Is in this confessions that Owen gets inspiration for his paintings. After the moment that they meet we see their interactions and how they feel about each other. Being a Colleen Hoover’s book it is already known that is going to be heart-breaking and beautiful. I really loved this book and how Auburn and Owen life’s interconnected. My only problem with this book was the lack of an epilogue. I need to know what happened next.
Overall this was an amazing book that shows a girl who does anything for the person she loves the most, even if this is going to hurt her. Like always, after reading this book I know that I will keep reading all of her Colleen Hoover’s books because they are always so real and beautiful where the characters are shown with flaws and make mistakes like in real life. If you want a book that will make you feel all the feelings this is the right book for you.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it?
