Rising new-adult star Hoover (Ugly Love, 2014) will pull heartstrings in this second-chance love story. At 15, Auburn fell deeply in love with a young man who died after a long illness. His family sent her away thinking it wasn't real love, but there is living proof of just how serious it was. On the trail of her child, Auburn ends up in Dallas, finds work at an art gallery, and the talented artist, Owen. He paints pictures based on the often painful confessions people send him anonymously. In a curious twist, Owen recognizes Auburn from the hospital where he heard her say goodbye to her boyfriend five years ago. Owen's problems with his father almost cause him to lose his chance with Auburn, while her difficult situation forces her into a life she doesn't want. But their connection is strong and compels the edgy, sexy story forward. The source of the novel's authenticity is a surprise: Hoover reveals that the confessions Owen received were actually sent to her by readers. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
