Overview

For Rose Zarelli, freshman year was about controlling her rage. Sophomore year was about finding her voice. With all that behind her, junior year should be a breeze, right? Nope. When a horrific video surfaces, Rose needs the one person she wants to be done with, the person who has broken her heart twice-Jamie Forta. As the intensity between them heats up, Rose realizes she isn't the only one who needs help. The thing is, Jamie doesn't see it that way-and that could cost them both everything.

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 Conf

I received an e-copy via YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for a honest review.  For some strange reason I didn't read the part about how this is the third book in a series, but once I figured that out things made more sense to why certain topics weren't being explained more. For example, Rose, the narrator, kept referring to the parking lot scene that got Jamie kicked out of school. Every time she mentioned it I was lost, but then I thought oh it's probably being escalated up to. Then for some reason I'm looking at the email I was sent and see that it's the third book. Even with that knowledge, I feel like No More Confessions could be a stand alone with the exception that you miss out on the history of Jamie and Rose's relationship. It is easy to make your own assumptions about their past though.  I enjoyed watching the relationship between Rose and Jamie. For all of you Confessions veterans, you all probably enjoyed it even more than I did just because you have been with these two from the very beginning. I could easily pick up that Jamie cared and was protective of Rose, especially in the first bedroom scene in the book. Talk about heart melting. I have heard that Rose was more of a bad girl in the previous two books. Let me know if she is, because I would love to read them to see how she is as a bad girl. I want to see that dynamic with Jamie.  Rozett covers alcoholism and the impacts of the war in Iraq on families of soldiers as well as soldiers themselves. She writes about both topics with great messages. The message for alcoholism is how it's never your fault if a loved one increases their drinking. The individual makes the decision to turn to the bottle and not receive proper help. The lesson about the war is to not stop living your life when you lose someone to a war or in general. If anything live your life even harder.  I definitely will be reading the first two books in the near future, so some of the holes that I have can be filled. Otherwise, I feel No More Confessions is a great story about taking a step back to focus on yourself, while you figure out your own demons. And yes, even if that means stepping back from the one you love for awhile.
