Confess Author Colleen HoovAuburn 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 GentryFor 2 12 stars Erm I think I have a lovehate relationship with Hoover's work I keep coming back for of her addictive writing style despite having so many issues with her characters and slut shaming Though I think it's official that I enjoy her far when she's writing intriguing possibly supernatural thrillers with Tarryn Fisher than when she's writing contemporary romance Never Never is still my favourite But Confess is not too badOne of the things that almost always bugs me about Hoover's novels is the way she characterizes her female protagonists They're bland innocent good girls and often victims They slut shame other women and when they start to behave in a flirtatious or sexual way themselves we're treated to a piece of inner dialogue where they chastise themselves “What the hell am I doing? I don’t do this kind of thing I don’t invite guys into my homeTexas is turning me into a whore” The annoying use of whore aside what is this the 1800s?Auburn Reed is another example of this But I am prepared to admit that I think this is deliberate in a Bella Swan kinda way Because Hoover is writing contemporary romance I think she leaves her female protagonists deliberately open for interpretation so that her readers can imagine themselves in the story I get it I just don't really like itThere's also a bunch of the usual tropes The guy Owen has had many girlfriends but Auburn is inexperienced There's another total douche in the picture whose attempted sexual assault yes another one of Auburn is supposed to make Owen look better Owen is flawlessly beautiful not a blemish to be found “skin that looks so flawless it makes me want to chase his father down and give him a high five for creating such an impeccable son” I suppose these are all small bits and pieces My real gripe is that I never really got a sense of the sexualromantic chemistry between Auburn and Owen There were many things about their relationship that I liked and will talk about in a minute but I never wanted them to be together which is generally the whole point of a romance novel Instead of roaring YES when they slept together I found myself wanting to skim read the sex scenesOkay So there's all the negative Now I can talk about what I did likeFirstly aside from his good looks Owen seemed very different from other NA love interests He was uirky weird even and a bit pretentious and hipster in a way that actually made him interesting rather than annoying I found his oddness charming Secondly there's a reveal about Auburn which I didn't see coming and thought was an unusual addition to a NA romance I liked itI also really like it when authors attempt to do something a bit different especially in a genre that is defined by cliches and tropes In Maybe Someday Hoover combined music and writing by releasing an album alongside the book with songs supposedly written by the characters In Confess Owen is an artist and there are some beautiful illustrations in the book On top of the artwork itself I really love the inspiration behind his art He welcomes anonymous confessions in a dropbox at his art studio and his work is inspired by them Very differentOwen was a very interesting character overall and it actually seems a shame that he was wasted on a romance novel where I didn't buy into their chemistry Oh well at least he had some great dialogue with AuburnDefinitely not a bad book but I think I will wait for Hoover's less romancey novels I'm still excited for Never Never Part TwoBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
