For once, Auburn takes a chance and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is hiding a huge secret. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything Auburn loves most, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it—but can she do it? - excerpt from Goodreads

Confess by Colleen Hoover has been on my wish list for quite some time. I started reading her works at November 9 and then move on to her newer books, but I have my eye on her older beauties. Lo and behold when I received a discount code I had to buy this without a doubt. Why I need a discount is generally where I am, books are costly as my country's currency is pretty weak. Let's jump into the review with that beautiful and abstract cover that certainly attracts the eye. Never judge a book by its cover but I first impressions are important so a book that looks good will definitely invite potential readers at a bookstore. 

This books starts off with much mystery, the characters have past that is gradually revealed throughout the plot. It is one of the key points that makes it a page turner. I love the alternating povs in the chapters giving readers a bit the male and female's thoughts and reactions. When they are together, it just captures your attention because like a TV show you would root for them. The supporting characters although are not stressed on but they all play a role in shaping the protagonists to who they are today and still constantly affects their decisions.

Although at the start it seems like insta-love but when you read more, there is depth in it. Just when you think you got it figured those plot twists knocks you out. These are the times when you feel like you just want to quickly finish the book to get out of the gloom. Pushing the plots forward through the actions and reactions, you will be entertained on how truly realistic this could be. 

In summary, this is yet another tear jerking book from the author. Colleen Hoover is a magician when it comes to new adult, pulling your heart strings without fail. This is not necessarily my favourite book but without a doubt it's still up to my expectations of her writing. I absolutely loved the ending as it was something that happened quickly and unexpectedly good. Definitely recommended to romance lovers who want to experience her writing. I'm a Co-Ho fan and looking forward to further expand my collection, so what's next?

The Kiss Quotient

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases--a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice--with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan--from foreplay to more-than-missionary position...

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he's making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic... - excerpt from Goodreads

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang is her debut book and boy was I entertained. This page turner certainly highlights the brain of an autism character. In my years of reading romance, this was a first on a character that is truly unique. Firstly autism is something that is not widely talked about and often people misunderstood it, especially the person themselves. To be able to write about such a character, this author is trying to reach out to the world because she has it as well. It is not everything about autism but creating awareness is a good start.

Stella is one interesting character, with her flaws she dares to step out of her comfort zone, her norm life and then met him, just your regular escort? Not really, Michael is also full of surprises. I love how mysterious he is at the start which definitely makes up for reading non stop. Their dynamics and chemistry is what pulls you in, their touch and words keeps you going. Every time their meet, my eyes just goes wide because of excitement. The side characters enhances the main characters as it brings out a different side of them. Their interactions give a special flair to how real these people are.
