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.

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…

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 4,5 STARS

I love being a blogger but it sometimes the schedule is between you and the new books you want to read so much. This is what happened with me and Confess. I couldn’t squeeze the schedule in order to read (or listen to) Confess. But, it’s never to late, right?

Confess is a beautiful story about confessions, coincidences, happenstances, and fate. This is the story of Auburn and Owen. Auburn suffered the loss of her boyfriend at a young age and that loss left a mark in her heart, her soul and her life for ever. Five years later she’s back in the city where her boyfriend died, and she feels more alone than ever in her life. That’s when she meets Owen. He’s a talented artist who finds inspiration in the confessions of anonymous people who leaves them in his gallery. Just like Auburn, he has a past that has made him build walls to protect himself, and sadly these walls isolate him for everyone. Is it a coincidence that the day Auburn decided to get a new job is the same day that Owen needed help in his gallery? Is it a happenstance that she and only she can make Owen smiles? Is it fate that they both find exactly in each other what they needed to move on from their pasts?

I loved Auburn. She loved endlessly and measureless. All of her actions were thinking of what was best for the future of the ones she loved the most, and her only selfish act was exactly what helped her to get what she wanted the most. And I loved Owen the most. He was just amazing. I loved his brain, how he analyzed everything, how he was so selfish one moment but the next he sacrificed himself for the ones he loved. Every time he compared feelings with colors I fell more and more in love with him.

Their confessions were so shocking. I never expected them. Not for one second. This was one of the best thing about this book. It’s unexpected. It’s original. It’s unique.

The narrations of Elizabeth Louise, Sebastian York were perfect. I have to be honest, after almost 100 hours of listening Elizabeth as Tessa in the After Series Audiobooks, it kinda set my mind to think of Elizabeth’s voice only for Tessa, but when I was in the 10% of this audiobook I didn’t think of Tessa anymore and Elizabeth’s voice was only Auburn for me. Her voice is as sweet, fragile, strong and determined as Auburn. I was a little worried about Sebastian’s performance because Owen is in his early twenties and Sebastian’s voice is for someone in his thirties, but Sebastian’s narration was PERFECT! I always love Elizabeth’s and Sebastian’s voices for the secondary characters, they knows how to put the personalities in their voices.

  1. I totally agree! Wonderful review :) I’m really becoming a Hoover junkie…lol
    That’s a sing of a good narrator, when you can get into a different character even if you just finished listening to another by the same narrator. It goes to show you how good are some these fellas, and how they truly get the essence of a character.

      OMG you are right! That is what I love about Sebastian York, Elizabeth Louise, Grace Grant, and all those amazing narrators I love so much! It feels like they transform into the characters they are narrating, that they can understand them. It is amazing.
