In the follow-up to Colleen Hoover’s #1 New York Times bestseller Hopeless, the charming and irresistible Dean Holder tells the passionate story that has melted thousands of hearts.
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.
I’ve never read a book retold from a different perspective. I was worried that it would all sound the same and make me dislike the story. Losing Hope didn’t do any of that. It made me love the characters that much more!
I loved getting a peek into Holder’s mind. We find out the reasons he does things in Hopeless. We also get to meet his best friend Daniel, who I absolutely love! He realizes that he may be coming off strong with the whole protectiveness thing, but he feels drawn to Sky. He also shows just how loyal of a person he is.
It’s odd knowing the general outcome of the characters, and we also get a little bit of info on what happens shortly after Hopeless ends. It’s not anything huge, but we get to see where everything stands.
