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.
As an art lover I have to start by discussing the actual art in this novel. It's AMAZING! After finishing the book I instantly looked up the artist. My two favorite things, reading and art combined! How awesome and such a fantastic idea as it just added to the book in such a great way.
The idea itself of people leaving their confessions for Owen to paint is so cool and unique. I love it, such a unique idea.
There's this huge twist in the book, which I won't reveal, that actually shocked me. I wasn't expecting it at all and I thought Colleen did a fantastic job keeping the reader on their toes.
This novel is heartbreaking, frustrating, and utterly amazing. It makes you feel something which is my number one must have in a book.
Once again, Colleen Hoover blew my mind with her fantastic writing.
