Winner of the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Romance
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.
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

Jen's Review 5 Stars
This is the 3rd time I've read this book -
The first time was when it first came out - the second time last year, and then today -
I read so many books - I remember feelings I have when I read them, but most of the time the story gets lost or mixed up with another story - So when I re-read a book I have in my "read again" list after a year or so, it's like reading it for the first time all over again. I remember what's happening as I re-read it, but I can't remember how it plays out...
I re-read this one again because of the new Series coming out on GO90 on Tuesday - the first 2 episodes have already popped up on the app, but they're not close captioned - I'm deaf so not knowing what they're saying really sucks - so I re-read the book in hopes to be able to follow along with the show on Tuesday when I watch all 7 episodes.
This story is really sweet - after watching the show I can totally picture both Katie Leclerc and Ryan Cooper (picture above) as I read the story - they are perfect for the characters in the book -
The actual review :)
Auburn has loved and lost at such an young age, but she's the type of person who loves hard - and at the age of 15 when she loses her first love, it's heartbreaking - and because of that, she's unable to let him go completely -
Fast forward a few years and we see Auburn struggling to meet ends - she's scared and alone in this new City, but unable to leave - The very thing keeping her there, is the very thing she's struggling to hold on to.
Owen *sigh* lol An artist - owner of his own gallery, and he needs help DESPERATELY! being in the right place at the right time, Auburn see's his "help needed " poster in front of his gallery.
$200 for 2 hours to play cashier seems like easy enough work - she's not sure why she feels the strong pull towards this stranger, but she doesn't seem to want to ignore it.
Owen is full of secrets - considering he's the owner of the Gallery where he paints Confessions. He gets his inspiration from secrets that strangers leave at his door - which in itself is pretty awesome!
There is too much detail in this story, it's hard to talk about without giving away too much of the reason why this book is so awesome :) Just trust me - if you haven't read it, read it now! Some people are watching the Go90 Show before reading the book - The show is based on the book, but it's not OF the book - the show will follow the guidelines of the story - but it's not meant to be exactly as the story is - if that makes sense :) I'm trying to remember what I read from Colleen Hoover's FB post about it....
Anyways - I'll just stop because I could probably babble on and on about how excited I am about this show - sure I wont be able to understand it , but there is talk about expanding it out of Go90 and I'm crossing fingers it will be online or something WITH CC on it - if not, I may have to drag a friend over to interpret it for me :)
