Hopeless by Colleen Hoover--A Review

This month is primarily focused on Clearing my heavily loaded kindle of TBR materials.  Even if I read 50 kindle reads in AUgust it would barely dent the TBR pile.    So some I purchased and some I've gotten for free from free books sites or posts.

Sure hope you enjoy the reviews this month and maybe even share your thoughts if you have already read it.   I'd love to hear from you.


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.


I adore Colleen Hoover's writing.   I am certainly well beyond the years of young adult, but Hoover's books have a way of touching the soul regardless of age.

Hopeless was an amazing story about friendship started at 5 or 6 years of age, loss of a best forever friend and refinding the lost one again thirteen years later.   Not only does Hoover have the talent to spin a delicious tale of love, she can build the characters everyone can relate to.   Her characters draw you into their drama and you want to help them in straightening out the messiness of life.

Hopeless addressed child sexual abuse,kidnapping  and suicide, all issues that are front in center for teens in our society.   Hoover was right on in the reactions characters had to each troubling issue.    She was dead on with the romance budding between Sky and Holder.   I can't imagine a more fulfilling story than the one she gave us with Hopeless.

I rated this read as 5 Winks!

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  I like to read and I like to share my reviews.   I post my thoughts without prejudice or bias.  The words are mine and I write reviews based on my humble opinion.  I will admit, I seldom meet a book I don't like.  I purchased a copy of Hopeless for my personal Kindle Collection.
