Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, a 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.

Loudly Crying Face“Well Damn Colleen Hoover, you got me again 😭 I bawled for a good ten minutes after this one. I absolutely fell in love with Auburn's character and her story. This is one of my favorite stories of yours so far. She got a second chance at a great love and it was beautiful. And what a wonderful mother she is to her son. "I'll love you forever, until I can't." 🥰😪”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“—-contains spoilers—- Starts with a very sad prologue. I love the idea of turning confessions into paintings and loved the illustrations of those. What I really hated with all I have is the character of Trey! - the audacity to go for your dead brothers girlfriend! Just so annoying to read! I really liked the chemistry between Owen and Auburn, but I wish Owen would have been more truthful and honest with her.”

Slightly Smiling Face“This book had me in my feelings for all kinds of reasons. I honestly loved the book but some parts of it did bother me. The main characters were somewhat childish I guess you would say but dealing with very, very hard realities. I related to this book in many ways and it had me on the edge of my seat for a lot of it. A great read for some, not for all!”
