From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a new novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.

51oCQfBKSdL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_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.

 


 

REVIEW:

Confess starts out with 15-year-old Auburn and her first love, Adam. I’m not going to dwell on this as it’s a very heart wrenching introduction.  The first ten pages are what pull you into the story.

Confess revolves around the main character, Auburn Reed. Auburn has recently moved to Dallas, Texas from Portland, Oregon. Auburn hate’s being in Dallas the place doesn’t really appeal to her at all; she lives with a quirky roommate and works as a hair stylist at her roommate’s salon. While walking home from work one day and thinking about how she needs to find a second job, she walks past Confess, a local art studio.

Walking home from work one evening, she notices that there is a help wanted sign on the window and ends up working the art show that night, hosted by the artist and owner Owen Mason Gentry. They’re connected in the middle.

They are both immediately attracted to each other, but Auburn is very cautious about getting involved with anyone. Regardless of her best efforts, they become entangled in each other’s lives. They both have secrets from their past and present that threaten to keep them apart and destroy everything they desire.

This story alternates back and forth between Auburn and Owen’s point of view. With Owen my heart hurt.  It’s one thing to carry guilt around for yourself but when you’re also carrying your parent’s issues it’s even more heartbreaking.  Owen endured more than his fair share.  When I read the last chapter, I did like that the author finally answered all of my questions about the characters and tied the whole story together.  However, it was too neat and tidy and felt a bit rushed in regards to answering for everything that has taken place.  This was my first read from this author but it won’t be the last. love couples romantic distance long distance relationship

📚 What we’re reading this week 📚

☕️ Murder in the Aisles by Olivia Hill ☕️

51KYxU8CpDL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Murderous intent is no match for killer intellect accessorized with stiletto heels.

A Felicia Swift Mystery, Book 1

If there’s one thing Felicia Swift likes more than sex, it’s books. But her dream job at the Library of Congress takes a macabre turn when she finds a linguistics specialist lying dead between his least favorite subjects: Anthropology and Astrophysics.

Worse, the utterly sexy detective seems to have his eyes on Felicia’s curves more than the evidence, which she is convinced points at the wrong man. And she plans to convince him of just that—right after he buys her an apple martini.

Mark Rizzo plans to wrap up this investigation as quickly as possible. Until he realizes the witness isn’t some dumpy, wizened librarian, but a researcher with endless legs, bottomless intellect, and a bulldog determination to complicate this open-and-shut case all to hell.

As Felicia and Rizzo dig closer to the truth, the real culprit gets jittery enough to try something desperate. Leaving Felicia to wonder if their investigation will lead them down the aisle of no return.

Warning: Contains a jaded detective with more scuffs, scrapes, and scars than a well-loved pair of Timberlands. Plus a more fashion-forward (and probably better smelling) sleuth than Sherlock Holmes who’s as picky about her lovers as she is about her shoes—and make no mistake, she’s had plenty of both.

☕️ War Room: Prayer is a Powerful Weapon by Chris Farby ☕️

51RtHUvdRxL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Juggling motherhood and her job as a real-estate agent, Elizabeth Jordan wishes her husband could help more around the house. But Tony’s rising career as a pharmaceutical salesman demands more and more of his time. With a nice home in the suburbs and a lovely young daughter, they appear to have it all—yet they can’t seem to spend time together without fighting.

Hoping for a new listing, Elizabeth visits the home of Clara Williams, an elderly widow, and is both amused and uncomfortable when Clara starts asking pointed questions about her marriage and faith. But it’s Clara’s secret prayer room, with its walls covered in requests and answers, that has Elizabeth most intrigued . . . even if she’s not ready to take Clara’s suggestion that she create a prayer room of her own. As tensions at home escalate, though, Elizabeth begins to realize that her family is worth fighting for, and she can’t win this battle on her own. Stepping out in blind faith, putting her prayers for her family and their future in God’s hands, might be her only chance at regaining the life she was meant for.
