Synopsis

Due to heavy subject matter and sexual content, this book is recommended for ages  17+

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 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.

This was absolutely amazing! Every emotion was portrayed beautifully, and I found myself crying from the sheer beauty of this book. It encapsulates everything that life is, showing thats there's good in the bad sometimes. I think I may have found my new favourite author. Bravo!

I'm constantly reading. You get your good books, your bad ones and down right horrible ones. Then every once in awhile you come across a great read, ones that stays with you. That is what this book is. I read another of her books and enjoyed it so I downloaded this one and was not disappointed. Great story line and great writing. I have never written a review on a book before but felt compelled to about this one. I definitely recommend you read it.

I love Colleen Hoover's books but Hopeless is my favourite so far. This was a beautifully written story that had you asking yourself what you would do in the same situation the whole way through. Holder is just someone you fall in love with right away. I couldn't get enough of Sky and Holder and was so happy that there was a second book from Holders point of view. This is a must read book!!

Holder! ahh Holder! I live You! you are the greatest protector a girl can ever have and that lucky girl being Sky. Sky is adopted, going to public school for the 1st time since being home schooled and has no tv, computer, phone etc... She has a rough time at school because she already has a label but she is a very strong girl and doesn't let it bother her too much. She bumps into Holder, whose label is BAD boy, at the store and he immediately thinks he knows her and that's where the mystery comes into play. I won't tell you anymore because it's so much better not knowing what's gonna happen! Enjoy... So I loved this LOVE story Holder is honest and swoon worthy and he won't let you down. Sky is strong and they both are very smart for being only seniors especially Holder with all his great words of wisdom and I just love the banter between the two.

This was the first book I read by Colleen Hoover and not only did it get my attention quickly but it put Colleen into one of my top spots for YA authors. The likeability of the characters was immediate and as with all of Colleen's characters I absolutely loved the witty repartee between Sky and Holder. One thing I was really excited about was Sky's strength through the whole book. A problem I have been finding with many YA novels is that the strong female lead is amazing in the beginning and then becomes self conscious and needy once they are with the guys which just leaves me consistently annoyed with them, but that isn't the case with Sky! All in all, this book made me run through the gamut of emotions...I was giddy and excited, I was content, I laughed, I got angry and I most definitely cried. Read it!

Riveting. I could not put this one down. Took me around 18 hours straight to finish it. Hoover tells an emotionally moving story in such a compelling way. You feel vulnerable with and for the character and at moments, you want to be able to know what happens at the ending while you're reading the halfway-point chapter because the suspense is killing you. This was a recommendation and is now one of mine.

Beautifully written. This story had me absolutely enthralled with every single word, page and chapter that I read. I was completely entranced by the characters and their journey of self discovery and truth that I felt every emotion that both Sky and Holder where feeling. Such a powerful and moving story, one of the best and most heartbreaking books i have ever read. This book is definitely a keeper. I look forward to reading more from this fabulous author.

Books and Bindings Review
June 4th, 2013
Hopeless was nothing like what I had expected. It was intense, dark, emotional, and heart-breaking, but also very beautiful and inspirational. I was struggling between loving it and hating it – you can just say I’m somewhere in between, leaning a tad bit more towards loving it (hence, the 3.5 stars). I liked Sky a lot. I loved how she was struggling with feelings (mainly, lust and passion). Even though she makes out with guys, she has never experienced the fluttering-butterflies-in-her-tummy feeling before. It was like she was blocking out any physical and/or emotional connection from the guys she made out with. I also loved how she knew so little about technology and lived her life in her books. I also loved Sky and Holder’s unspoken non-committed exclusive confusing non-relationship. I loved how they both knew they had undeniably strong feeling for each other right off the bat but didn’t say the three big words to each other until closer towards the end. I didn’t hate him, but I didn’t connect with his character that much. I can’t really describe in words the exact reason why I didn’t like him as much - he was just too wordy, too sweet, too expressive. I have to admit though, he had his sweep-me-off-my-feet moments. I also liked both Six and Breckin. I just love their personalities and their role in the book. They’re both hilarious and they balanced the seriousness of the story with their humor. I recommend this to mature adults who are looking to read a heavy drama.

Realism.
March 2nd, 2013
This book is honestly not a "romance". More than anything, I feel after finshing it that it's more about forgiveness, an unconditional kind of love, and hope. But don't get me wrong, the title is perfect and if you read - you'll understand why. Raw, real, disturbing... but it's like a story that needs to be read, to open your eyes to the realism of life itself. I didn't connect with Sky until toward the middle of the book. And despite the material being heavy on sexual attraction and intensity with Holder, it actually weaves into a necessity. So, yes, those looking for that bit of "romance" won't be disappointed.. but I'm sure you'll have a few other unravelings.
