What it’s about
Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…
That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
5 HUGE Stars–And My Favorite Read Of The Year!
Oh my gosh! This book! This unbelievably heartfelt, emotional, gripping book! I LOVED this book. I mean I REALLY loved this book. Like, I loved EVERY SINGLE THING about this book. I think you get my drift.
It been a long time since I've fallen wholeheartedly in love with a book, its characters, and its love story. I adored this heartbreakingly emotional story. It made me laugh, it made cry, and it made me believe in young love. I loved the heroine, Sky. She's one of the best female YA/NA leads I've read to date. As for the hero, Holder, he simple stole my heart. I can't begin to tell you how much his wonderfully written character affected me.
I'll be honest, I couldn't fully understand why so many readers gushed about this author's work. Until now, I had only read her last few releases, and while I felt the writing was excellent, I can't say I overly enjoyed the love stories (in fact, I hated Ugly Love). So, after finishing her latest release, I decided to give her earlier books a try to see what all the fuss was about. Oh my goodness, to say I'm glad I did is an understatement! I NOW get! I NOW understand why so many of my friends love this author. Colleen Hoover's Slammed series is excellent and this book...well, it blew me away!
Hopeless is a book that will forever live in my heart. The way it made me feel, from the first page to the last, is why I read romance. It's by far my favorite read this year. I can't praise it enough.
