Hopeless, by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a heartfelt and heartbreaking story! I LIVED IT!!! :-)

This is a beautiful story about young love, discovering who they were, who they are, trust, love and life. Starts out like a teenage romance novel but by the 50% mark, the reader embarks on a deeper story of drama and past events that have profound effects on both main characters. I can't say too much without giving anything away but it really was a beautiful story to read.

I really got into this story towards the 50% mark and had trouble putting it down from that point on.

NO SPOILERS: The first chapter is actually a chapter that happens about 50% to 60% into the book. You get a glimpse of the two main characters. At first it irked me that the book started out that way but when I go to that part in chronological order, I was screaming BRILLIANT!

A really good read!

Young Adult (i.e. sexual content but not explicit). Recommended for mature teens and older.


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.
