Liliana Hart - Trouble Maker - Book Review (ARC)

The Blurb—
Marnie Whitlock has never known what it’s like to be normal. She and her family moved from place to place, hiding from reporters and psychologists, all because of her gift. A curse was more like it. Seeing a victim, feeling his pain as the last of his life ebbed away, and being helpless to save him. It was torture. And then one day it disappeared and she was free. Until those who hunted her for her gift tried to kill her. And then the gift came back with a vengeance. 
Beckett Hamilton leads a simple life. His ranch is profitable and a legacy he’ll be proud to pass onto his children one day, work fills his time from sunup to sundown, and his romances are short and sweet. He wouldn’t have it any other way. And then he runs into quiet and reserved Marnie Whitlock just after she moves to town. She intrigues him like no woman ever has. And she’s hiding something. His hope is that she begins to trust him before it’s too late.

Colleen Hoover - Confess - Book Review











Colleen Hoover - Confess - Book Review
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre: Contemporary/ New Adult Romance
Length: 320 pages.


This is a standalone novel.

The opening scene is so tragic; Colleen Hoover had me crying by page three. This story had me guessing, questioning, pondering and angry. I’ve taken my time writing this review because I don’t want to give too much away.

Auburn Mason Reed moved back to Dallas five weeks ago. The last time she was in Dallas it was to say her final goodbyes to the love of her life. She has mixed feelings about being back. Things aren’t working out the way she planned.

When she finds herself in need of a second job to pay for a lawyer, she stumbles across a store simply called, Confess. The front windows are covered with confessions written on bits of paper. A sign in the window says ‘help wanted’.

It turns out that the store houses an art studio and a talented artist by the name of Owen Mason Gentry (OMG). He gets his inspiration from those bits of paper containing some mind-bending revelations.

What a brilliant concept. The artwork featured in the book is particularly spectacular, done by (real-life) artist Danny O’Connor.

Colleen Hoover has found two beautiful characters in Owen and Auburn. When they meet, Auburn doesn’t know that Owen has seen her before.

There is that instant connection, more than just attraction. A recognition of bone deep pain and a selflessness rarely matched by those who haven’t suffered or loved as deeply.

“My mother says there are people who you meet and get to know, and then there are people you meet and already know. I feel like Owen is the latter.”

Circumstances are not kind to this pair. There’s a bit of sneaking around and long heated looks. The yearning to be together and the pain of being held apart is palpable.

Colleen Hoover’s slow, artful reveal of Auburn and Owen’s own confessions result in heart breaking consequences.

I don’t want to say anymore, it’s best to just dive in and enjoy.

A book packed with intrigue and yearning that will have you incensed at the injustice of it all.
