Hopeless and Losing Hope
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 thoughts on HOPELESS:
This book was amazing, heart wrenching, charming, made me laugh at times and cry for the characters at others. Not what I expected from a YA book at all but so worth every word. Some books you want to read fast because it is so good and others you want to read slow so you can soak in every word and every feeling that is portrayed. This a a book to read slow even though I could not put it down; I could not skim an single word either. Simply amazing.
My thoughts on LOSING HOPE:
You know you have read a good book when you can not get it out of your head and you don't want to, that was very much the case with HOPELESS. I want not ready to leave their world even if a good part of it was heart wrenching. LOSING HOPE is HOPELESS from Holder's POV and usually when I hear that I am turned off as it seems like just a way for the author to sell the same book again. That is not the case with this book. In HOPELESS we learn that both SKY and HOLDER have a have a lot of baggage, SKY has some she does not even know about at first but HOLDER, OMG is you loved him in HOPELESS you will adore him LOSING HOPE. You will feel hs pain and his bravery in every word. Simply Incredible.
