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…
First of all I just want to say that Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. She’s an automatic auto buy for me. To say I love her books would be an understatement. I love everything about her books. Her writing style. Her characters. Her ability to grab the readers attention from the very first page and hold it until the very end of the book.
Owen Mason Gentry aka O.M.G. is an amazing hero. I fell hard for him from the very first meeting between him and Auburn. I loved his sense of humor. Auburn did right away too. These two connected right away. Their playful banter had me laughing a lot. The chemistry between them was so strong. If ever two characters were meant for each other it’s these two.
The flow of this story was wonderfully paced. It kept building and building. I had a hard time putting it down. All I wanted to do was read it uninterrupted. I love books that are like this one. Books that capture my attention and hold it until the very last page. Books that have unique plots. I can tell you that this is typical for Ms Hoover’s books.
When I reached the end of this book I was happy with the outcome. I liked the way things ended for these two. I also like the way Auburn grew a backbone and finally took a stand. It was refreshing to see her grow into the woman she became.
Overall, if you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover’s books you’ll definitely want to read this one. It’s another physical book buy for my shelves. And if you haven’t yet read her books I highly suggest you give them a try. I’m telling you… she’s a truly gifted author.
