Review: Confess by Colleen Hoover

One word. Er, acronym. Three letters. (If you’ve read the book you probably know which word I’m talking about.) OMG. This booked ruined me in the most beautiful way. I knew it would happen, it was written by Colleen Hoover. But I loved it. Every heart-warming — and breaking– moment of it. We meet our main character, Auburn, in one of the darkest times in her life. She’s just had to say goodbye to someone she loves, and moves away to try to make a life for herself. First day in her new ‘home’ she meets the artistic and somewhat flirty Owen. The story progresses over a few days, and then a few weeks, and by the end of the book I felt like I knew these characters for much longer than I had. Absolutely stunning.

When I found out that Colleen had written a story for them, a novella to Maybe Someday I knew I had to hop on that! When a girl moves into the apartment Warren and Ridge live in, and Warren has to share a bathroom with her, you just know shit is going to go down. Not only is she a hot Hooters waitress, but she was also filmed in a porno…. a porno that Warren spends the entirety of the book searching for by watching every single porn movie he can. Talk about dedication, right? Bridgette has had a pretty terrible upbringing and has vowed against ever loving someone romantically, and so Warren pretty much walks all over that and turns her life upside down when he won’t let her screw him at night and ignore him during the day. As trashy as the relationship between Warren and Bridgette seems in Maybe Someday and even so in Maybe Not, I get it. I understand why she refuses to open up and accept what she is feeling. However, that only made watching as Warren cracked her open that much more romantic. Her character dynamic clashed with Warren’s in just the right […]
