Colleen Hoover is name I’ve seen floating around a lot yet never really paid much attention to. I own Maybe Someday but have yet to read it. When I saw the cover of Confess though, I decided to see what it’s about. Based on the watercolour inspired cover, I hoped it would involve art. It does.
I love books that revolve around art, so when I found out that the audiobook of Confess was available to me via Overdrive, I borrowed it.
Seeing how the author is Colleen Hoover, this is a New Adult book. For the most part that means romance, no? Though what most caught my eye when I read the synopsis was the parallels between the subjectivity of truth and art.
While I’m not expecting a philosophical exploration of Kant and the aesthetic theory, I’m all for intelligent plot motivations. I hope that intelligence amidst the romance is what I will see in Confess when I’m done listening to the audiobook.
I’ve read one of Colleen Hoover’s books- I think Slammed?- and I was not fond of it. So now I’m wary of reading any of her books.
Granted, Confess sounds good and from your thoughts, unique. I can’t wait to see your verdict so I can decide. :P

Awesome photo you got there! I have to agree with you what caught my attention was the cover. SO PRETTY. And when I read the synopsis, what a surprise — it’s about art! I really hope the author incorporates the art element well and not just use it as a mere plot device.
