Book Description:

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.

    My Review:

   Hopeless is just....WOW. I really don't know how to put all of the emotions that I got from reading this book into words. I think its impossible. I've been putting of writing a review because I needed to cool off my emotions for a few days, if I wrote the review right would of been crazy, probably just one sentence over and over again "I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!!" I do love this book....a lot. I live it soo much. Definitely one of my favorites now. I'm just mad at myself for not reading it a lot sooner! 

   What really got me in Hopeless....everything. Everything was amazing in this book. The plot, was mind blowing! I loved every page, every word, every little secret, every twist, especially twists, I'm a sucker for an awesome, unpredictable twists.  The story is not as light as it might seem if you read a book description. It's actually a lot darker. It's a story that will captivate you, and leave you breathless after reading it. The story that will make you cry and laugh. A story that you can't miss!

  The characters were amazing! The kind of characters that you just can't help but love! Sky was probably one of the best characters I have ever read about! She is funny, strong, sarcastic (there is no awesome character without a little sarcasm), she is just that kind of character that is very well developed. The character that you learn about, more and more through out the story. Holder is also the guy you can't help but fall in love with. He is just the kind of a mysterious bad fist. Wait till you get to know him...prepare to be swept off your feet ladies(;

“When I touch you, I’m touching you because I want to make you happy. When I kiss you, I’m kissing you because you have the most incredible mouth I’ve ever seen and you know I can’t not kiss it. And when I make love to you—I’m doing exactly that. I’m making love to you because I’m in love with you.” 

  I honestly can't and don't want to write a lot about this book, because you definitely have to read it, and find out everything for yourself. I know, I'm sorry for being so evil. Hahaha!! 
I would also recommend not to read spoilers about this book, because trust me you really don't want to find out everything before reading the book, it will just ruin it. So stay away from spoilers! If you haven't read this book it. Take a day off and read it! Trust me when you start, you won't be able to put it down. 
P.S:  Collen do you do it? What is a secret for writing such an amazing book? You are seriously an incredible writer. Thank you for such an amazing book!



  1. I have not had the chance to read anything by Colleen Hoover yet. Clearly I need to change that with this book!

    1. Yes, this book is definitely worth reading!

  2. Never read any of Colleen Hoover's book. But looks awesome!

  3. This book has a lot of good reviews. I haven't had the chance to read a lot of NA books, but I hope to read this one soon. <3

  4. I have not read anything by this author yet, and I haven't read anything NA yet either. I just started Sea of Tranquility after some serious begging from my older sister, so I hope it is a good one that keeps me on the NA train. Because Hopeless is next up. I just bought it after having it recommended on numerous occasions. It is nice to read your review, and knowing that I am making a good decision with Hopeless!

  5. This was one of the best books I`ve read in 2013!!
