    **See the original review over on 21st Century Once Upon A Times**'He only does what he wants to do - if he breaks your heart, well, that's on you...'No More Confessions grabs you by the heart and doesn't let go.Louise Rozett has a knack for creating characters who are perfectly flawed. Although that may come across as a bit of an oxymoron, it's the truth - Rose Zarelli, Jamie Forta, and the rest of Rozett's characters are portrayed with a realism that makes them perfect as characters.Why? Because they're relatable. No one wants to read about a goody-two-shoes heroine and a hot guy that whose biggest worry is how he's gonna fix his hair each morning. They want to read about characters who change, who battle with life's trials and emerge more knowledgeable. Character growth is this series' biggest attraction.Besides the hotness that is Jamie Forta (cue the screaming of a thousand fangirls!) the Confessions series' biggest draw is the sheer amount of character growth - realistic character growth. Because Louise Rozett teaches us that sometimes growth = making mistakes. Growing as a person, as a character, is not always about improvement. It doesn't always come with a happily ever after attached.Sometimes growing up means letting go. It means realising that some things can't be fixed, that some people can't be put back together. That we, as humans, can't make everything and everyone okay all the time. The quote that spoke the most to me was the following:'The toughest thing about all of this is accepting that love is not enough, which goes against everything I learned growing up, every fairytale. The reality is that two people can love each other to pieces but all sorts of other things have to be right for it to work out. And with us, all sorts of other things have been wrong all along. (...) He was so busy trying to save me and everyone else that he forgot to look out for himself.'Love is a battlefield.Can love be wrong, but right, at the same time? Can it bring two people together, whilst simultaneously tearing them apart? No More Confessions explores these themes and gives readers a raw look at love at its best and at its worst.Rose and Jamie's relationship reminded me of a rollercoaster - that, and the relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine in Wuthering Heights. Up...and down...and up!...and down again. To some, this may seem tiring. But to me...it seemed real. Because how can two people be in a stable relationship when their lives are out of control? How can they work on being a couple when they don't even know who they are, as individuals? The answer? They can't.Their relationship is fast, furious, passionate, and painful. They're one another's confidants - but at the same time, one another's punching bags. They come together only to fall apart. It's an endless cycle and one that is only worsened by outside pressures and family situations.Everything hangs on those three word - "I love you" - and on each one deciding whether they will become the person the other knows they can be. 'I have this feeling that someday, the fact that Jamie loves me is going to work against me. I just don't know how yet.' A struggle between empowerment and submission.Female empowerment battles against the longing for love, as Rose takes on the trials and tribulations that make up her life in No More Confessions.All girls have been there! You want to be independent, you want to be okay with a guy turning away from you, you want to be all confident and feel six feet tall whenever you enter a room.But you also want love. You want it so bad that you second guess your own worth, your own opinions, your own decisions.Rose realises that she wants both, and - more importantly - she deserves both. She deserves respect and love. And maybe it's a big thing to ask for, but she's worth it. And she won't settle for anything less.Jamie in Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend made Rose question herself and her choices. Until, in No More Confessions, she realises that they're her choices to make. That all because it's not the choice he would make, doesn't mean it's not the right one. No More Confessions teaches readers to not be afraid of pursuing their dreams and of knowing what they want out of life and love.Because - in the words of Rose! - if a guy doesn't want to know an independent young woman such as yourself, it's "his loss."Sometimes grief has more than seven stages.Grief is a hard thing to deal with. It's a theme that's been explored previously in the series in great detail. But No More Confessions delves into another whole area - understanding how to deal with grief which has been agitated or renewed.Having constant reminders around you of loss isn't an easy thing to deal with. Especially if you're trying to make an effort to move on, such as in the case of Rose's mother. Rose herself is caught between moving on and dealing with her often misplaced anger. She wants answers...but at what price? She wants peace...but for who? Rose has to make the choice to either make amends with the past and her grief, or to reopen the 'wound' and deal with things that may have been better left buried.No More Confessions will pull you in, tear you apart, and put you back together again.Some books leave you smiling. Some books leave you crying. No More Confessions leave you feeling as if your insides have been scrubbed raw. You feel more than you normally feel. You see the world, and people around you, through a new perspective. It equips you with gems of wisdom that will stay with you long after the final page.I bid a fond farewell to Rose Zarelli and the characters of the Confessions series. It has been a pleasure reading about them and experiencing Louise Rozett's phenomenal storytelling :)

    ¿Sabían que me encanta esta serie? ¿No? bueno, sépanlo.Devoré los dos primeros libros y por supuesto devoré este tercero. Amé ver el crecimiento que Rose experimento a lo largo de toda la serie, porque si, al final se nota bastante lo mucho que mucho que ella ha crecido. Jamie es otro que me gustó desde el principio, aunque en este libro más de una vez quise golpearlo. Por su personalidad cerrada, por sus malas decisiones que al final ponían a Rose en peligro y principalmente por todo lo que sucede entre ellos. En final me gustó, y aunque admito que sufrí como loca y que todavía quiero asesinar a la autora por hacerlo así, creo que fue lo más acertado. Ambos personajes necesitan seguir creciendo, conociéndose a si mismos y arreglar sus problemas antes de querer continuar con su relación. Así que, si, me gustó el final y eso que fue bastante abierto...

    I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.SUMMARYRose’s junior year is off to a rocky start when someone posts a video of her dad getting blown up in Iraq on the internet where the world can see. It continues to spiral out of control as she tries to push Jamie into believing in himself.WORLDBUILDINGThis is a contemporary novel set in the real world so there’s not much worldbuilding to do. Suffice to say that I completely buy that Rose is a young woman recovering from losing her civilian dad in a war, experimenting with her first boyfriend, and struggling with school and hobbies.CHARACTERI love Rose. She’s SO realistic. She’s totally average in some respects – a decent singer but a poor guitarist, mostly because she doesn’t practice. Her friendships are changing as her priorities change, her relationship with Jamie is heating up, and she’s learning that she’s not a victim just because her dad died in a horrible war. She’s maturing and facing the consequences of her actions with dignity and aplomb. She’ll be a remarkable young woman when she’s fully mature.RELATIONSHIPSRose’s relationships are always rocky, mostly because communication between her and her peeps are so poor. Her friendship with Tracey is falling apart because Tracey has no time for her. Her relationship with her mother is strengthening because of shared emotional pain. Her relationship with Jamie has its ups and downs, mostly because Jamie has taken to drinking and keeps lying to her. Her friendship with Holly is growing stronger, mostly due to them practically being step-sisters and Rose working behind Holly’s back to get her to break up with a jerk-ass and get back with a sweetheart. And we finally meet Vicky, Rose’s Texan friend who lost a son in the explosion that killed Rose’s dad. None of her relationships are perfect, and that’s what I like about this, too. Rose can only really rely on herself, and I think during the novel she begins to realise that. She can’t save everyone when she needs to save herself first.FORGOTTEN SUBPLOTSI hate forgotten subplots. There are two in this novel. One is the end of year assignment where Rose was supposed to interview someone who had a ‘profoundly negative impact’ on her. I can’t even with this assignment. What kind of teacher would assign that? The only three people who had a profoundly negative impact on me at age 16 was the guy who tried to rape me, the math teacher who bullied me to the point I had a nervous break down and made a complaint about him, and the day carer who treated me like a retard because I was a five year old who looked like a 10 year old. None of them being memories I particular want to think about, let alone face those people ever again. That’s trauma-inducing, that assignment. And Rose doesn’t even complete it – it’s just used as an excuse to get in to see Gabe face to face – which I admit, was a tremendously emotional scene, but I just hate how the plot line was forgotten.The other forgotten plot line was Rose and her music. After being kicked from her band she started going to a songwriting workshop, but we never found out if she was any good or what happened: did she finish the course? Were her songs any good? Did she sing them herself? What did other people think? Did she make it as a singer-songwriter, and did she get better at the guitar?OVERALLDespite the frustration of feeling like not everything has been brought to a satisfying conclusion, I utterly adored this novel just like I adored the previous two. I have absolutely nothing in common with Rose, but I always get punched in the gut in these hugely emotional scenes and I can really feel what she’s going through. I’m glad to see where her life is heading after the rough starts she had in Books 1 and 2 and I like to think she’s off to a bright, promising future and will be happy.BONUSThis song is dedicated to Rose and Jamie. I can’t find an official Taylor Swift version, so here’s a nice enough cover by Cillian Anderson.Some choice lyrics:And I wish you knew that I’ll never forget you as long as I live.We’re a crooked love in a straight line down.Makes you wanna run and hideThen it makes you turn right back aroundYou always knew how to push my buttonsYou give me everything and nothingThis mad mad love makes you come runningDamn it, started reading the wrong copy. Here are my updates. Deleting the wrong copy and sticking with this one because I added it earlier.06/1954.0% "I adore the way Rosie is portrayed as average surrounded by above average friends without being all woe-is-me or secretly aome kind of Mary Sue. It's so realistic and easy to identify with."06/21 80.0% "Why does she have the ability to touch me so deeply over something I can't possibly identify with? Here I am, weeping in the staff room during my lunch break. Stop breaking my heart!"06/21 85.0% "This is how intimacy should be written for teens - half on page, half off page, and all about the emotions, the emotions, no erotica."

    No More Confessions es el tercer y ultimo libro de la trilogia Confessions creada por Louise Rozett y continua narrando la historia de Rose.Despues de haber leido los dos libros anteriores esperaba con muchas ganas poder iniciar esta ultima parte, al igual que las novelas anteriores es muy agil de leer, con un desarrollo realista ( quizas demasiado realista ) y escrita de una forma sencilla y atrapante, la autora tiene una manera increible de meterse en la piel de estos personajes, no solo los crea de una forma muy verosimil sino que no cae en los tipicos cliches o topicos a la hora de desarrollar su historia. Por eso no sabia que esperar de esta tercera parte, en los libros anteriores me sorprendio varias veces, asi que estaba segura de que la conclusion a esta trilogia no seria comun o simple, pero tampoco esperaba que el final me produjera tantas emociones.Siendo honesta esperaba algo mas de este libro, me gusto muchisimo la evolucion de Rose, una protagonista fuerte, valiente y que vemos crecer mientras leemos estas novelas, obviamente la parte sentimental queda en segundo plano, la trama se centra mas en el crecimiento como persona de la protagonista pero lo cierto es que no me hubiera molestado que Louise Rozett le diera un poco mas de romanticismo a la novela.Estaba bastante satisfecha con la lectura .... hasta que llegue al final, reconozco que me sorprendio pero tambien me dejo muy mal sabor de boca, sino hubiera sido por ese final le hubiera dado mas puntuacion, pero desgraciadamente ESE final me dejo triste, enfadada y muuuy emocional, estuve llorando durante un rato, se que la autora lo hizo para darle realismo a la historia pero yo lo odie con todas mis fuerzas, tardare mucho tiempo en olvidarlo.P.D : Necesito un grupo de apoyo donde desahogarme con spoilers de este MALDITO E INJUSTO final.3 Estrellas!

    No More Confessions was one of my highly anticipated reads; I loved the previous two books in the series that I couldn’t wait to get back to Rose’s story. Rose had come a really long way since we first met her in Confessions of an Angry Girl. She was a girl who was still getting to know her way in the world, but also a girl who showed tremendous growth. I loved how in comparison to other people, Rose came across as a really mature individual. Okay sometimes she was quite impulsive and her temper got the better of her, but that’s what makes Rose who she is. In this book however she showed more maturity than one character in particular, this character sort of made me mad at times. I wanted to shake them a couple of times, I think my feelings of annoyance out-weighed my feelings of adoration this time around. Although this character did have some super sweet moments which I loved, I just wanted the character back that I’d come to know and love. The worst thing was that I thought with certain help from people, this would help this character stay on track, but maybe a bit of separation is what is needed for everyone *cries*No More Confessions was a different tone than the previous books, there were a lot of important decisions that Rose had to make right from the beginning, and I think the growth of her character really shone through during these moments. It was a lot for a 16 year old to deal with, but with the right amount of support from her family and friends I think Rose went on to make the right decisions when she needed to. It wasn’t however always a sombre tone through this book. I liked it in particular how some characters and their quirky personalities, could just lift your mood right up. We had Robert and his endearing attempts to get his ex-girlfriend back and Angelo and his “sweater” references brought back all the fond memories of why I fell in love with these characters and series in the first place.I did think that No More Confessions would be the final book in the series, but with the way things have been left, there is so much potential for there to be another book in this fantastic series so far. Also there’s still a few things I still need answers to and I still want that one particular ending, I know my review has been pretty vague, but there’s so much brilliance that fans of this series need to experience for themselves! Fans won’t be disappointed, as this is one book that shouldn’t be missed out on.

    4 - 4,5/5This was a great conclusion to the Confessions trilogy (though I wouldn't say no to a fourth book or a companion)... What a roller-coaster of emotions again. There were a few things that bothered me a little but I loved the book nonetheless!

    reto literario L-I-B-R-O-S Grupo : lecturas conjuntas 7e libro menos de 250 páginas o menos Antes de la lecturaEl año pasado por fin , por fin lei esta hermosa trilogia. que aunque en un principio no esperaba nada mas que cosas superficiales , banales que no tiene nada de malo pero asi es como esta preconcebido para mi el mundo de los libros YOUNG ADULT. me he sorprendido gratamente hasta el punto de que está en mi favorito por la forma en como aborda temas de la actualidad de forma adecuada para llegar a un público joven pero inteligente y que hay lecciones de vida en cada libro. estoy realmente emocionada por leerlo aunque admito que siempre he sabido el final , tal vez eso es lo que mas me gusta. Durante la lectura me lo lei en 2 horas . super normal pero senti que fue muy rápido , lloré un poco como siempre con estos libros de esta autora y lo he sentido que me ha faltado hojas. creo que este libro ha sido especificamente para terminar la trilogia en si. no tanto para llenarnos de mucha información. quiero decir como una historia corta porque fue cortito. hubiera deseado saber mas sobre los otros personajes. Al finalizar la lecturame he sentido tranquila y en paz. el final era tal como lo recordaba un final realista y probablemente en esta situación que no parecia tan " grave" puede desencadenar hechos peores . relaciones mas destructivas. me gustó la fortaleza de la protagonista de darse cuenta que algo no funcionaba AHORA a esa edad que debia madurar y tal vez intentar algo DESPUÉS. senti que me rompia de una forma grata como lei el libro de ELEANOR AND PARK. a mucha gente le gusta los finales felices pero a mi me gusta los finales realistas y esperanzador ( aunque claro , tengo mis excepciones ) lo recomiendo tanto pero no sé si deberian leerlo cuando estan en crisis , por lo menos si yo lo hubiera leido hace 4 años podria haberme ayudado o jodido. lo senti muy personal por mi cercania constante a la protagonista y lo mucho que nos parecemos .

    Initial Impressions 2/25/16: 4.5 stars | There's another book, right? Tell me we get more Rose and Jamie! It's been a while since I've read this series and admittedly somehow forgot a LOT of book two but I'm so deeply invested in these characters that it all came back to me. I forgot how much I loved Louise Rozett's characters and how realistic they feel to me. I think that's one of the reasons I love these books so much -- things don't have to be overly dramatic to be conflict. The characters go through personal, inner struggles that end up shaping their reactions to others and that in turn leads to realistic situations and conversations instead of a series of unnecessary misunderstandings. I really like how Rose and Jamie's relationship has a series of natural ups and downs and their grief and hardships -- as well as happy emotions too -- feel truly genuine. There's so much I can relate to that I went through growing up and also so many other stories that I got to experience through these characters. The characters really drive this book and I just feel like they're so well-crafted. With the way this one ended, there had better be a senior year book for Rose Zarelli! I'd love to see a solid conclusion with everything these families have gone through. Full review as originally posted HERE on The Book Addict's Guide 3/15/16: I’ve been a big fan of the Confessions series since I first read CONFESSIONS OF AN ANGRY GIRL back in 2012 on a whim. I was so impressed with main character Rose and Louise Rozett’s character portrayal and I’m so glad to see that continue throughout the entire series so far. I was thrilled to hear that NO MORE CONFESSIONS was still being published despite the series’ original publisher apparently dropping the series because these books are incredibly realistic, meaningful, and actually quite quick to read.NO MORE CONFESSIONS went surprisingly quick for me! It looks like it is shorter than its predecessors but I also love that it wasn’t jam-packed full of unnecessary situations just to fill the pages. NO MORE CONFESSIONS gets straight to the point and sticks to the heart of the story which revolves around Rose, her family, and her relationship with bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold, Jamie Forta. I somehow forgot a lot of what went on in book two (it’s been a while!) but I easily fell back into Rose’s world and felt so comfortable picking up where I left off.One of the things I love the most about this series is how realistic each character and situation feels. I love that so many reactions are based off of a character’s internal debate or personal involvement with a situation. It’s less conflict because of misinformation or unnecessary drama. These characters have gone through some really tough stuff but not so far that it becomes potentially unrelatable. I feel like if I haven’t experienced something that they’re going through, I know someone who has or feel a degree of connection somehow through my own experiences. The book addresses death, grief, addiction, relationships, friendship, and so much more in a way that really allows readers to connect on many levels. I love how relationships on all levels have changed and evolved throughout the book.I really like how Rose’s friendship with her best friend Tracy has changed so much from the first book as both girls grow up, experience different things in their lives, and start to become individuals. They do drift a bit but they’re still friends and it was great to see that evolving element in their friendship, even if it does mean they’re not as close anymore. We’ve all grown out of friendships or have spent less/more time with a friend over the years and it was really nice to see that happen over time and not because of a blow-out fight. Situations like these are really well-represented throughout the course of this series and how people naturally change over the years. Some changes have happened quickly after major events but I really appreciate the slow and gradual changes that an individual might experience and how Louise Rozett really brings that aspect of growing up to life.The ending of NO MORE CONFESSIONS was great. Rose and Jamie both converge and diverge — they’re really coming together as a couple but their current life situations don’t seem to be on the same path. Rose is looking at colleges since her senior year is drawing near and their relationship once again comes into question, proposing a big decision for the two characters on so many levels. Again, Louise Rozett does a great job at representing this and how a character might indirectly reaction to potential changes without that full-on confrontation. It’s just so beautifully represented in each book.I forgot how much I loved this series and it was so wonderful to read another book about Rose, Jamie, and the wonderful cast of characters that supports them. This is some really great contemporary if you’re looking for that extra realistic element and I really hope there’s a Confessions #4 to really bring this series to a close (I’m guessing it would be the last one since we’ve been progressing through Rose’s high school years). I’m dying to see what happens after this book because NO MORE CONFESSIONS was just wonderful!

    A fantastic ending to a fantastic series. I am sad it is now over. (Well... at least considering the ending I am guessing it is now truly over, but one can never know. I am always open to more books about Jamie and Rose, but I feel like it would be better as a new series, not a continuation of this one.) However, I am also happy that I had the chance to read this series, enjoy it and meet with Rose and Jamie and see how they got through life. And that this book came out after almost 2 years of wondering if there would ever be a third book! Rose was wonderful in this book, but like with the other books, she still made some mistakes. She tried to hard with Jamie. And while I think it was wonderfully sweet what she tried to do with Jamie, it was just too much. I felt like she was poking her nose where it didn't belong. I also didn't totally get why she was so invested in Jamie. I can understand the appeal, and I can understand why she wants him so badly, but she also has to see things are going right, that while he loves her, it isn't the same as her love for him. But she is also great. I loved how she stood her ground with Rachel (maybe not always in a good way though), and I loved how she helped Robert and Holly. She is a great friend, and she truly does her best to get through life.I am not sure what I thought of Jamie. On the one hand, he is a great and diverse character. On the other hand, I was just so frustrated with him. With how he acted, how he spiralled further and further in doom, but never once sought help, never once reached out his hand to have someone help him. Instead, he unleashed his fury on Rose and other stuff. Instead, he hurt the one who he apparently loves. I felt like Jamie was something like Jekyll and Hyde. On the one side he is a sweet boy with great talents, but on the other hand he has so many problems in his life. Problems that are slowly taking over. But I am proud of him in the last few pages, I was really applauding, so happy to see this happening. I won't spoil anything, I just wanted to say that I am so happy to see this happening.We also have the whole mourning her dad stuff. This time something happens that rips open the wounds of several people. Something that should never have come out, something that should never have been shown. And while (when we got to the part) knew why that person did all that, I am sorry, I still felt disgusted. That he never once thought that it will hurt people... And yes, I know that something happened to him, but sorry. No.Like the other books, this one is split up in seasons. Which is something I really loved and still love. It makes the book seem more real.It took me 3 days to get through this book, which isn't something that often happens, especially when a book is so short. But for some reason I just couldn't get through this book at my normal tempo. The book was great, the characters interesting, the story wow, and I really loved it, but I really had to put myself in a chair and concentrate on reading it. It sometimes happens with a book, and while I know this could be omitted from a review, I feel like I should put it in here, as it is also about the book and how I felt about the book.Would I recommend this book/series to people? Oh, yes, definitely! This is a must read to everyone! Review first posted at http://twirlingbookprincess.com/

    This review is originally posted on Paperback PrincessNo More Confessions was truly the best grand finale to this awesome, awesome series! I absolutely LOVED No More Confessions, it was truly the best book out of the entire series. Louise Rozett did great with Confessions of an Angry Girl, then it stepped up a notch for Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend, and No More Confessions is just an explosive ending that I loved! Yes, it's certainly not a happily ever after ending, but the ending is real. This series is a true representation of grief and life. Rose thought that she can finally start moving on with life, as the death of her Father gets longer she feels that she may actually get through this, but a video surfaces and now she's faced with the reality of possibly seeing her Father's last moments. No More Confessions...fantastic title by the way, as the synopsis states, Rose is finally over "Confessing" she feels that she hasn't done anything wrong so there is no more apologies for this teen, and it is amazing to really see Rose's growth. Tracy, Angelo, Stephanie and Peter were a few of the characters that had tremendous growth throughout the series as well. Louise truly writes characters brilliantly, they were so realistic and relatable as they were far from perfect, this is realism at its best! The characters of No More Confessions were so real that I felt that I was watching their lives play out in front of me rather than reading about it. Louise Rozett is a truly blessed writer with a way to make the reader love the characters, I was invested in what happened to them that I got a bit emotional at the end, and whilst the ending isn't what's "norm" in most books I absolutely loved the ending although it was sad. The main reason why I loved the series, not just the ending was because this is what happens in reality. Reality doesn't always get "happily ever after" and even though this is saddening it is the truth. This is truly what sets The Confession series apart from other YA Contemporary Romance books.The toughest thing about all of this is accepting that love is not enough, which goes against everything I learned growing up, every fairytale. The reality is that two people can love each other to pieces but all sorts of other things have to be right for it to work out. And with us, all sorts of other things have been wrong all along.The Confession Series by Louise Rozett is a very beautiful and some way empowering series that teaches love, life and grief. It shows us that life is raw and emotional and that it's not always perfect but we get there. We don't always like what we get, but we survive. It honestly touches on so many themes, but the most recurring factor for me for this series was the realistic and rawness of life. I don't think I can explain it anymore than that. I'm so looking forward to Louise Rozett's future projects as The Confession series really grabs you by the heart strings and doesn't let you go until you've shed a tear. Louise shows us life for what it truly is, an imperfect world but with goodness and bad, terrible and beautiful and love and grief.

    It's been two years since Rose's dad died, and of course it's something she still struggles with. That video gave her a new target to hate, while her worry for Jamie was pushed into the background by her quite some. It was nicely displayed how we sometimes just don't want to acknowledge a certain problem, or offer help in the wrong way. It's so human! I just love Rose as a character beyond reason, I really do.Everything she has been through in the first two books has made her a lot calmer, wiser, and stronger already. And this time, that trip to meet Gabriel... It was so heart-wrenching, and I'm over the moon that she realized how misdirected that particular anger is, and that she's not hanging on to it when she learns it's all just a horrible misunderstanding, but that she's able to let it go, really let it go and just grief like she should. It amazes me every time how Rose finds her gentle heart buried under all that rage, and manages to grow as a person on all the occasions she has to dig it out.So while she does, she learns more about herself, starts following her own way, and gains the confidence that comes with growing into yourself. I think that's what Jamie loves about her, even if he can't say it. Which pains me, because Rose was so very sweet with him, in everything she did, and he just... Except for that one night, he didn't do anything to particularly make me like him again, but maybe now... I hope when he's back on his feet for good, he'll be a 2.0 version too, and I'd very much like to meet him. That ending was just bad, and an improved version is imperatively vital right about now.It surprised me that Rose pretty much neglected the band this time around. I thought it would hold more significance, as outlet for her anger, but except for her big bad fail, and her now moving on by herself (which is a good thing, I think)... I really wouldn't call it a key element of the story. Maybe in book 4? In a big city like L.A., new start and all... lots of things you can come up with righ there! Like, how about some new hot dummer for Rose, so Jamie actually has to show some fight for once? Up until now, it was Rose who did all the hard work, and I think it'll be good for her ego if she got some attention just for being herself. Maybe now that she's pretty much found herself, her senior year should be about acknowledging her worth, that what she does has an impact on the world around her, and especially that she's worth fighting for (or over).Area Scan: Idea: 5/5 -- Style/Vocab: 5/5 -- Plot: 4/5 -- Heroine: 5/5 -- Hero: 3.5/5 -- Hearts: 5/5 -- Tears: 5/5 -- Heat: 3.5/5 -- Thrills: 3/5Overall: 4.5/5

    Really great book. This is one of the most honest high school books I have read. In life all doesn't end well so why should it in a book? The ending brought me to tears. I hope there is another instalment in this series.

    Originally posted on Le Book Chronicles BlogThis was one of my most anticipated reads of 2015, even though for some reason it took me a whole year to actually read. But nonetheless, I loved the first two books in the series Confessions of an Angry Girl and Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend. But let me just say, I was so, SO disappointed with the final book. I don't think you even understand.First of all, I had forgotten what had happened in the last book, but this book doesn't take off where the last one ends, it starts off... well I don't know how long after but I'd say at least a few months.I don't know if it's because I am older than I was when I first read this, or if Rose just changed, but I found I didn't really like her. She seemed to be all high and mighty about herself, but she was still immature and just annoying. I also found the love interest to be quite unhealthy. Not only did I not like where James' character went in this book, but I just found I didn't like his attitude and I honestly didn't understand why these two characters were together at all. From what you get to see of their relationship, it's completely one sided. I swear there were maybe three times in the whole book where I thought, yes, he's a nice guy, he loves her, I completely understand. There were also parts which were quite boring and didn't really do much for the story in my opinion. So then, I got through all of that, only to be thoroughly disappointed with the ending. I feel like the characters all went through so much and they were finally in a good place and then nothing was resolved! Spoilers: honestly you go through three bloody books with Rose and James being on and off constantly, only to have them not even end up together in the end. Seriously!! It ends with Rose being all high and mighty again and realising they are better off being apart and all that crap, and good for her, but no. I didn't like it. I don't like when characters become all philosophical at the end of a book because it's so out of character. It's simply done to make it look like they have had some major character growth, but they haven't and I'm not buying it.I will say, the book wasn't terrible. There were part which were pretty entertaining, and the little plot twists throughout the book were quite unexpected. So I am glad I read it. If I had a chance for a do-over I would still read it; but it's definitely not a book I will reread.Would I recommend? As a whole, I would recommend this series because the first two books were fantastic.For fans of: Amy and Roger's Epic Detour minus the road tripOverall Rating: 3/5

    I have not been shy about my love of Louise Rozett’s Confessions series. It tends to be on a lot of my Top Ten Tuesday lists, and I recommend it fairly frequently outside of the blogosphere as well. Rose and Jamie – and the other supporting characters – are all amazingly written and fleshed out, full of flaws and yet endearing. Rose especially is such a strong character, not only because she’s been able to sort of come to terms with her issues, but also continued to fight through them. She’s a good friend, someone who tries to do the right thing (but doesn’t always manage it), who is trying to pull herself up from the dark pit that her father’s death put her in. Her relationship with Jamie – while admittedly driving me bonkers – is so complex and strange, and yet – as the reader – you can’t help but hope they can figure themselves out. For me, at least, No More Confessions was exactly what I’d wanted, and yet, not at all what I was expecting.To see my full review, please go HERE.***To see more of my reviews, please visit me @ Read and Reviewed!

    The Confessions series by Louise Rozett has been an interesting experience for purely because in the beginning it didn't start it very well but the sequel blew me away and that it was pretty much what happened with book 3. No More Confessions sees Rose, leaving behind her anger issues and that of her past love too. She able to talk with her mum calmly and truthfully without any lies. She is in my eyes finally growing up. When you first begin the novel you see her entering a club with her fake ID, it's typical thing these days of a teenager but my thought were, where could this be heading? Good or bad? I didn't want Rose to retract to who she was, which was growing up to be someone she isn't and following someone around to make herself be apart of the society today. However, she had a valid reason, one that was quite simply horrific to describe and she needed someone to look after her and that is what Jamie Forta is good at. When a video of her father was uploaded on the internet of him being blown up, she didn't know where to turn, so she went to Jaime knowing that he would be able to give her some comfort despite the fact that they are no longer together. Although that doesn't stop both of their feelings for each other. Jamie is a bad-ass but I feel that he also has a heart of gold when you really get to know him. Rose is an exclusive VIP into his heart and you can really tell that from this novel. I struggled to remember what happened in the previous book as it was such a long time ago but thankful to my reviews I could pick right were they left off, plus Louise is really good at giving you snippets from the previous summer. However, I felt that Jamie declined as a character, he was a complete tool to be honest, he alcoholism probably didn't help either. I know that he has had a hard life especially with his father taking early retirement and relying on him on to keep the household going whilst ignoring him. I know that these days in this climate and society, that pressure and stress can send someone into an ordeal in the shape of the bottle these days. I felt the spark in there that we once saw and Rose saw was slowly deteriorating which so sad to see.Rose and Jamie's relationship is a rocky one. We see such growth in the both characters, moment of pure passion and happiness. Whilst I'm thinking that this will be okay, that Rose is finally Jamie's girlfriend and that are finally meant to be. No such luck there. In the end I think it was the lies and non-confessions from Jamie that was keeping a distance between them and one I hope they will rectify soon. We both know that they love each other, but I think we also know that some things aren't meant to be or they aren't right at this moment. They are unfortunately unlucky in love. All I want for this couple is a HEA and I don't know if they are going to get one. When one character declines another saws and that is what Louise encompassed in this novel. Rose was by far at the her strongest. The video didn't just tear her apart inside but she was able to look past it rebuilt herself into to someone else entirely, a person she was happy to be. I've seen Rose at her worst and her most childish and immaturity. No More Confessions, is what it says it is... she has nothing more to give but to be who she wants to be. I felt that Louise really knew how to hit the key points of teenage life the society we live in. My curiosity was certainly peaked as I wanted to see how Rose has tuned out in Junior year. I also wanted to see how she has grown as a character. I could relate to her so much more which made this book a delight to read. Is there going to be another book... I really hope so. I really enjoyed just a short contemporary in between novels.Rating - 4

    Dying because the cover is out!!!http://www.louiserozett.com/life-at-c...12/11/14 EDIT: Check it out! From Louise Rozett's facebook page..From Chapter 1 of NO MORE CONFESSIONS:Before his eyes go dark at the sight of me, there’s a flash of heat in his gaze that makes my stomach drop out. I remember exactly what it’s like to feel Jamie Forta’s hands on my bare skin, though I tried not to let myself think about it all summer. Not after the way he shut me down without letting me explain. I believe his exact words in the parking lot after the fight with Anthony Parrina were, “I don’t know you.”His loss.https://www.facebook.com/LouiseRozett...

    I’ve been absolutely in love with author Louise Rozett’s Confessions novels. Having gotten to read the first novel, Confessions of an Angry Girl, back when I was first entering my freshman year of High School (coincidentally, the same year that the novel’s protagonist Rose was entering her freshman year), I was always excited each summer for the opportunity to experience my next year of High School alongside Rose. If that makes sense. Anyways, having just finished up my Junior year, I was excited to see Rose do the same. In No More Confessions, Rose Zarelli has just discovered that a video of her father’s death in Iraq has been posted on the internet. Overwhelmed and conflicted between viewing the video and leaving it alone, Rose has become desperate for someone to share her pain and help ease her out of it. Even though Jamie Forta has broken her heart more times than she’d like to admit, Rose turns to him, sneaking into a bar with a fake ID to see him again. As she enters her Junior Year, Rose’s life begins to change. Possibilities are introduced; her relationship with Jamie is more confusing than ever, her bandmates have grown hard at her; she’s beginning to wonder if it’s possible to leave her sorry little town behind and make something new for herself. I always loved Rose’s character. I loved how imperfect she was. I loved how she was the friend who was closer to ‘average’ and as a result, more likely to be relatable to a teen audience. She was hopelessly in love with Jamie Forta and willing to do whatever it takes to remain true to herself. And while I loved those aspects of her character, in this final novel I was hoping to see more growth from Rose. There’s no denying that she has in fact grown but, personally, I always hoped that with all the feminism she preached internally that she might become a more independent character as a direct result. I don’t think this happened completely and I do wish that there would be a fourth installment to the series to see if Rose achieves exactly that in her senior year. The relationship between Rose and Jamie is something that’s been slowly burning throughout the series. We’ve all been dying with their will they/won’t they chemistry and we all want to know if, at long last, Jamie and Rose will make something serious of their relationship. To any readers who are majorly crushing on the bad boy love interest like myself, you will love everything that takes place in No More Confessions. All the distance between Rose and Jamie is closed both literally and emotionally and the two characters contemplate admitting to their love for one another. Seriously, so cute and it made my heart melt. Unlike the last two novels in the series I did feel like there wasn’t as much going on in terms of storyline and plot. We don’t see Roses friends as frequently nor do we see much of her actual high school experience (part of what made the novels so fun!) but there are more of the interactions as mentioned above. The majority of the plot focuses about the video of Rose’s father as well as her family’s struggle to come to terms with it. While I did enjoy the story, I did feel like that plot, as crucial as it was, dragged on for a bit too long to still be considered dramatic come the end of things. With a plot twist like the one that No More Confessions ends with, readers are going to be absolutely in love with the final novel in the Confessions trilogy. Everything reaches an ultimate high and inevitably, there comes a low to ground the characters again. I would recommend this series to readers who are interested in a series that mostly has a high-school setting and is filled with teen drama. To any readers about to enter high school who want a somewhat realistic read, I’d also point them this way. All in all, still one of the cutest stories I’ve read and I will miss Rose and Jamie who I adore far too much.

    Review can be seen here on Books and Swoons.*I received a copy of this book from the author in order to participate in a blog tour. However, this review was not influence by it.*I've been a fan of this series ever since the first book, Confessions of an Angry Girl, came out. So I was over the moon when the third book was announced. No More Confessions followed the story a few months after where the second book left us and just like the previous books, we are left wondering what is happening and why is Jaime Forta not talking to us, meaning Rose of course.No More Confessions is a bit different from the previous books. It is interesting in seeing Rose during her Junior year compared to her Freshman year because you can see how much growth she has gone through. It is especially obvious in her relationship with her mother and with Jaime. The Rose in this book is stronger in the sense that she knows what she wants and is willing to go for it. However, when it comes to Jaime Forta, her weakness, she allows for him to derail her from her thoughts and plans. The good thing about that situation is that Jaime Forta is really good guy and even though he is a man with a few words, we know he cares about Rose and she is also his weakness. In No More Confessions, he lets Rose set the pace and goes along with her ideas even if he doesn't believe in himself.All the previous books deals with hard topic, such as Rose's father death in Iraq, teenage bullying and drinking, this book is just the same. However, this time, it feels all the more real. When we meet Rose in the first book, she is dealing with the repercussions of her father's death but we don't see it in initial stages, This time around, we're seeing trouble right from the beginning and it definitely and eye opener for Rose. Unlike the Rose in the previous books, she is unwilling to step in for fear of overstepping her bounds and for fear that it may be true. For me, it felt like it was really different Rose because the Rose I had met in book one would have stepped in, especially because it is someone she loves. I can't blame her though because at the end of the day there wasn't much she could have done to stop Jaime.The ending left me feeling hopeful and I can hope that maybe we'll get another book or maybe a short story on what happens in the future. Rose did so much growing up throughout the series and she is one of my favorite female characters. If you haven't already read this series, I truly recommend that you do. Give the first book a try and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    I received No More Confessions by Louise Rozett from the publisher and this is my honest review.I have been following this series from the beginning. A few years ago when it came out I read the first book, Confessions of an Angry Girl which was the very beginning of Rose Zarelli’s story, and I have loved every book since then. For the third book I chose to be apart of the blog tour because as soon as I knew it was coming out I wanted to read it immediately, and I am so glad I did.These books have such a hold over me. I love the characters, every single one of them. I did have my issues periodically with some of them *cough cough* Jamie! But other than quick little bouts of anger I love them all, and never want to let them go. I feel like the reason I love these characters so much is because I have been with them all since the beginning. I have watched all of them grow in their own different ways. Some have gotten more mature, some have gone down bad paths but regardless I will follow them to the end.As always Rose has grown more than ever since when we met her at the start of her freshman year. She is doing so much better handling her love life, and for the most part she is being smart about it. I cannot really say much because again this is a third book in the series and giving a lot of details will probably contain spoilers. But the couple that is spotlighted in all three books has a lot to do with No More Confessions and I loved it. I enjoyed seeing them grow together. I know these two are my favorite bookish couple, because it has been a long time since I have come close to crying because of a book, and there was something near the end of this that made me tear up a few times.The only thing I was not a fan of in this book was that the ending seemed very rushed to me. All of the sudden it was Rose’s birthday, her and Jamie were fighting and she went home. The next thing you know something bad has happened and the hospital came into the picture, physical therapy was involved for like one chapter and then BAM the book ended. I did not like that. It just seemed like their whole relationship was smooshed into a few pages and that was it. I needed so much more when it came to the end, I had so many questions and I do not even know if there is going to be another book. I really hope so, I need more than what happened.

    Reading book one totally made me team Rose. She was sassy, spunky, and her anger would deter many a reader but I found some odd connection with her, and her life's story.Let's just talk about what book three is about first, shall we? Rose Zarelli is confessing no more. Confessions are for people who "have done something wrong," and Rose is not in the wrong here. Her relationship with Jamie Forta was on the rocks, or in the air, or whatever you want to call it--as it always is. But, something's changed. They're together, like together together--and things are finally going in the direction she's dreamed about for four years. YES! Finally.But, are things ever as good as they seem?Okay, so in book three, Rose and Jamie are as toxic as they ever were. At least in my opinion. I can't think of any two people who don't belong together but are good and bad together at the same time. Yeah, I know. I'm confused to.I think it has everything to do with her age. I think she's still learning, and that part of it makes it sort of okay. I think if I allow myself to fully understand it, I can better connect myself with this story, and with Rose--like I did with book one.This is a story about a young teenaged girl, going through teenaged things, with some adult things trickled in. It's a series about growth, love and some healing. It's not a cutesy, happy ending kind of read--and you just have to be good with that.I recommend this read to readers who love their characters--real, and climactic--and are not particularly happy ending seeking.

    WOW! I can't tell you how much I loved this book, this series. If you're reading this third installment you're probably just as big of a fan as I am. While the previous books were more Rose centered, this book brought Rose and Jaime's relationship to the front, something I think we've all been waiting for. Rose and Jaime's relationship has always been complicated, sweet and frustrating; but with this book we are introduced to a even more flawed and beautiful story of love, loss and mistakes. It's not often that I come across a book that I love so much that I literally can't stop thinking about it, to the point that I refer back to the characters as points of inspiration though out the day, It's that good people.I think the thing I loved the most about this book was that it was so real, people aren't perfect, we all have flaws, some more then others, it's what we do after our mistakes that show what we are made of."This is what I know about life: It is loss, and change, and starting over again and again and again, even when you don't think you can. It is casting off, shedding your skin, leaving people you love behind, both the living and the dead.- (Rose) Louise RozettThis book has moved me, It's so much more then your typical YA Novel, It's going on my Top Shelf of Favorite Books of all time.

    No More Confessions is not your ordinary YA novel. It's very raw and heartbreaking but you just can't put it down. Rose is a great character. She's got just enough grit to make a believable character. The situation that sends her looking for Jamie is a sad one and Jamie makes me want to punch him in the face. One minute I want him and Rose to be together and then the next I just want her to dropkick him and leave him on the sidewalk somewhere. It's hard for me not to give away stuff in the book. The story line is great and the writing is done so well that it doesn't feel like you're reading a story out of a book. The characters are diverse and have a depth to them that makes them leap off the page. What comes out in this book, it's something that hurts quite a few people. And it just left me upset and disgusted. It was something that no one should have ever seen. But I also understand why it happens and the book wouldn't have been as good without this happening. The ending of this book really got me. I don't want to give anything away but I will say that I loved the ending because it's more like real life than any happily ever after. It was heartbreaking and I may have shed a tear or two but I think that it was a perfect ending. **I received this book via YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Any thoughts and opinions are my own.**

    My feels. This is one of my favorite YA series. It has impressed me the whole way through because of how realistic and relatable the story is. This was a great conclusion to the series.I think our MC is finally in a place where she really can be more than an angry girl. Rose has grown a lot and she's learned to accept the things she can and can not change, and that's really what it's all about. The pain of her fathers death is still there, but she copes one breath at a time. Rose's biggest achievement is that she's learned to let go and accept the messy things in life. Sometimes you love and you lose, but that's ok. The real tragedy would be not knowing when you're fighting a losing battle and never taking a chance. The romance was one of my favorites. I was invested and satisfied with the outcome. I appreciate the author for writing such a realistic relationship and embracing the good and the bad in terms of story. I think Louise Rozett has written a series that all teenage girls should give a chance. Rose is a strong character with some really important things to say and lessons to learn. I have enjoyed the journey. It's been a joy watching Rose grow into a confident young woman that embraces life and no longer feels overwhelmed by it.

    So I kind of want to put my whole review behind a spoiler tag, but instead, I will aim for vague and non-spoilery.It didn't go in the direction I expected. More focusing on alcohol addiction wasn't what I wanted. I thought we covered all that with Pete, and Jamie's dad.However, it makes sense that this issue might plague Jamie too. I don't know what to say about Jamie. He remains a mystery, because talking is not Jamie's thing, unfortunately. But it's clear that Rose loves him, despite his flaws, and yet is too young to really be able to help him.The thing I like about Rose is her honesty and realness. She makes many mistakes (still, arrgh Rose, WHY?), but she learns and tries make good.The stuff about dad is painful, the stuff about Robert is funny, the Tracey stuff is awkward and the intimacy between Rose & Jamie is off the charts. We see too much and through clear, untinted glasses. And the ending kills me, again, with the realness, and the honesty, and if Ms Rozett decided to mend out hearts with a short story set five years down the track, well, really it's what we deserve. After putting us through all the pain.It's not your typical YA romance, but Rose's stories never have been that. I am glad I read it.
