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 one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past 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.
Before even beginning to write this, I know whatever review I give, whatever words I type will never-and I do mean never- ever do this novel justice. I could write out the synopsis but even that doesn’t even begin to prepare you for the emotional rollercoaster you will experience when you read Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.
The story centers around Sky. She goes through the daily motions of life never really feeling much of anything. She hasn’t cried since she was five years old and has never been attracted to anyone. Anyone, that is until a chance meeting in the grocery store introduces Holder into her life. You can tell that Holder is everything she feels she should stay away from, emotionally unstable he’s probably someone she should walk away from. But, against all odds these two dive headfirst into a relationship all while experiencing a connection that seems unexplainable. I could not put this book down.
From a first kiss that breaks the record for best first kiss without actually kissing to two crazy best friends you can’t help but love and possibly one of the most heartbreaking and maybe even heart healing stories you will ever have the honor to read, this one definitely belongs on anyone who loves a great read’s bookshelf. Although, I don’t recommend this for the faint at heart. You will laugh, you will cry and smile and frown and every other emotion or facial expression known to this universe. But, in the end, it will all have been worth it.
