Review ~ Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared, and no memory forgotten, but Holder’s past remained a mystery.
Still haunted by the little girl he let walk away, Holder has spent his entire life searching for her in an attempt to finally rid himself of the crushing guilt he has felt for years. But he could not have anticipated that the moment they reconnect, even greater remorse would overwhelm him…
Sometimes in life, if we wish to move forward, we must first dig deep into our past and make amends. In Losing Hope, bestselling author Colleen Hoover reveals what was going on inside Holder’s head during all those hopeless moments—and whether he can gain the peace he desperately needs.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The perfect sequel to Hopeless.
I’m very skeptical about reading the same story from another POV, but this Colleen Hoover did not disappoint. She wrote Dean Holder’s point of view with such originality that only sometimes did I feel like I had read the story before. And to get Holder’s POV was just amazing. His side of things, his feelings, his heartbreak, the pain he carried around … were just so much more painful coming straight from him. I felt his pain through Sky’s POV, but to get into his head was difficult. He had so much to deal with.
I loved this book so very much. And I recommend it to anyone and everyone, whether you’ve read Hopeless or not.
Oh, and if you haven’t read this yet … Don’t forget there’s a free mini-sequel to this as well. Finding Cinderella. Colleen, the generous person she is, wrote us a story of Holder’s friend Daniel–for free! So, go get it.
