After watching the mini series trailer for Confess I had to bump it up on my TBR pile ASAP. Colleen Hoover is a mastermind when it comes to originality. I loved the confessions and actual paintings.
Well I did not love Confess has much I was hoping for. On the other hand I did not hate it either. What happened to her alpha male heroes I love to read about. Emory who is Auburn's best girlfriend has more balls than Owen. I understand why Owen at times did have to stand down but I really needed him on quite a few occasions do some serious ass kicking. I was actually shocked a few times he did not step in. In one scene I actually did not like him for not stepping in.
I was missing the sexual tension and couple chemistry Colleen Hoover is known for in her books. Owen and Auburn were cute and a bit awkward together. I liked it but was still not always feeling their chemistry. I loved and respected them as individuals. They are both selfless and the sacrifices they endure for their loved ones is sad and beautiful.
Confess is broken down in Two Parts. Part One was boring. I kept waiting for something major to happen and nothing did until the last chapter. Part Two was a bit better than Part One as I could not swipe my kindle fast enough but still I needed some situations to be dealt with more.
Overall Confess was not a bad read. I did feel that there was too many serious themes happening. I felt a lot of times certain scenarios were rushed and not fleshed out. I was really shocked by this because Colleen Hoover is a amazing story teller who can bring out different emotions. Confess should of been one of those books where I could laugh, cry, get angry and go all fan girl on the hero. Unfortunately the execution and emotions were not there for me.
I think this will be one of those occasions where I will like the on-screen better.

I thought this scene was cute with their flirting. He is leaving her apartment and will be back the next night to see her.
Owen: "And I don't know how it is in Portland, but you also shouldn't allow strangers inside your apartment."
Auburn: "You walked me home. I couldn't deny you the use of my restroom."
Owen: "Thank you , I appreciate that. Just don't let anyone else in to use your restroom, Okay?"
Auburn: "We haven't even been on a date yet and you're already trying to dictate who can and can't use my restroom?"
Owen: "I can't help it if I'm a little possessive. It was a really nice restroom."
Auburn: "Good night, Owen."
Owen: "I'm serious. You even have those cute little seashell soaps. I love those."

Love the new cover that ties into the mini-series. It was nice to visualize Owen from the sexy hero on the cover. The couple pose is passionate. Love how he is caressing her neck and is about to kiss her cheek.
