{Review} Losing Hope (Hopeless #2)

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2)Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with Dean Holder, yet I was proven wrong.

I am always a bit wary reading male POV, ecpessically when it is for a book that I have read and loved to pieces. Yet Hoover is such a natural at this and all way doubts were laid to rest.

‘Losing Hope’ is Holders POV on what happens in ‘Hopeless’. It lets us know what he is thinking and also fills in some of the gaps nicely. There are parts were we get to see what he thinks when the main events in ‘Hopeless’ take place and also what happens when I disappears for a little while. I was wondering what was happening then and now my mind has been put to rest.

I loved it so much that I never wanted it to end.

I have only recently discovered Colleen Hoover’s book. After reading ‘Hopeless’ and ‘Losing Hope’, I can say that I have found a new author to love.

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.

#2 Finding Hope


I’ve had this on my TBR pile for a while now. Why the hell did it take me so long to read this.
The story and the character were so real. It was like jumping into the mind of the characters and watching it play out through their eyes.

While reading I thought I knew what was happening and then next thing, major plot twist. So did not see that coming. It just made me love the character even more. Then there was more twists and turns. Life is never easy and people are never as they seem. A sis the case with ‘Hopeless’.

I have found a new author to love. Will be reading more from Colleen Hoover for sure.
