a book in review!

Brief Summary:

From the NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling author of SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT.

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.

"Every word this author writes demands to be read. HOPELESS has such an impact that it will squeeze your heart tight, leave you breathless and make you feel." -Totally Booked Blog

"An intense, emotional read with just the right amount of "dark" and "light" to wrench your gut and make your heart sing. I devoured it."

"Hopeless is a heartbreaking, yet beautiful tale that has been woven deeply into my heart. A definite must-read!"


Woah, wowzer, ahhhh, tears, laughter, OMG, gasp, WTF....these are all things that you will feel when you read Colleen Hoover's Hopeless. I've been a fan of Colleen for quite sometime and was looking for a new book to read. I hopped on GoodReads and poked around and this synopsis caught my eye so I downloaded it (it's $3.99 on Amazon and B&N right now). You better buckle up, cause Sky's story is one hell of a ride. Of all of the twists and turns, I only saw one coming and even then I wasn't ready for it. Colleen's writing style is so gripping, she makes you feel everything the characters are feeling and so much more. From Sky's everyday life, to Holder's major sex appeal, to Six's sleepy loveableness, and Brickin's idgaf attitude, every character is well thought out and you'll feel like you are in their lives. This is the definition of a page turner, so clear your schedule and be prepared to be messed up by this story for days. I recommend this 5 star story to anyone who needs to be sucked in for a night or weekend, it'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, and it will leave you haunted, xo!
