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…
This was my first Colleen Hoover book. Also my first new adult book. I had no expectations at all and didn’t even read the summary before starting.
My New BFF
Auburn was a wonderful character. She has all these struggles in life and I thought she was doing a really good job at fixing herself up so that she could be a normal person. I admired her strength at losing a loved one but at the same time I found she took way too long to put him in the past. I’m not saying forget about him but she was in love with him for most of the book. Either way I thought she was a very interesting character and I found myself being able to relate to her in certain situations.
Owen was easily my favourite character in the whole book. I especially loved how he was inspired for his art. I was able to relate to him a lot more but I could tell there was more to him than what we originally thought. I’m glad I was proven right. I fell completely in love with him and I got a little mad when Auburn never really listened to his story. They could have saved so much trouble.
I found myself sucked into this book quite easily. The writing flowed nicely and there was a ton of character development. Even though this isn’t a high action book, there was still some crazy things going on to keep me hooked. I feel in love with the characters and the couldn’t put the book down.
I’m absolutely in love with this book. My favourite part was that we got to see some of the art mentioned. I loved that! I feel like everyone should read this book because I think you’ll all love it as much as me. I need to go out and buy 10 copies just so I can put them all on my shelf. I feel bad for not going into too much detail with this review but even though some of these things might not be spoilers, I still think you should find them out on your own. It’ll make reading it so much better.
