Synopsis (from goodreads)
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…
The first thing I love in this book is the cover, it’s a beautiful one and the title of the book is perfect.
The second thing I love is the artwork inside the book created by Danny O’Connor, the pictures are incredible, so beautiful and Danny is a very talented man.
The third thing I love is the subject, every painting created by Owen are based on a confession write by anonymous person. Some confessions are beautiful and some others are really bad.
This book is a story of love and secrets, it’s fun, dark.
Auburn is young but she’s strong, she had lived the loss of her loved one and now she must fight to keep the one she loves. I like her determination but I don’t like her choices with Trey. She’s a good character, a woman with hope in the future.
Owen has some issue with his father and some secrets he wants to keep from himself. He likes Auburn and he will do everything to make her happy and safe, even if it means, leave her alone. I like his name and his cat. He’s a sweet character, all the thing he does are for his father’s protection or Auburn’s one.
Emory is the character I prefer, we don’t seeing her much but she’s very fun, she’s always saying what she thinks even if the people don’t like that. She doesn’t talk behind their back and I like this kind of woman.
Trey and Lydia are awful peoples, they have no feelings, and they didn’t understand what Auburn went through. I don’t like them but they are important to this story.
This book is not the one I prefer of Colleen Hoover, I have an impression of unfinished. But the story is really good and it was fun to read the confession. I would have wanted a little more depth in the romance and especially that she was a little more developed.
If you like Colleen Hoover, you will like this book but it’s not her best one.
