The more he gets to know Sky, the more he starts to suspect she could be Hope. He just wants her to be happy. He just wants her. He is falling for her. Every single piece of her. It did not disappoint. Not at all. Anything that was a little unclear during Hopeless got clarified. Holder and Sky are an amazing couple and this story is so well written and so freaking beautiful!
Colleen Hoover is seriously talented. She has a way to tell a story like no other. And the letters Those letters were so emotional, they were the best part for me. This book was a work of art, perfection.
I am so excited for everyone to read it! Just amazing! The only other person who understands my pain. I used to think the best part of me died with Les, but the best part of me is standing right here in front of me. View all 80 comments. Feb 09, Debra rated it it was amazing Shelves: Colleen Hoover can do no wrong in my book.
I've read and loved each and every single one of her books and they were all brilliant, and Losing Hope was no exception. Hopeless was one of my favorite books of and reading the story again from Holder's POV made me exactly remember why. Holder hasn't had an easy year, to say the least. After his twin sister commited suicide, his whole life has spiraled out of control and he hasn't been truly happy ever since. He feels guilty about what happened with his sister and decide to leave the they lived in with their mother and his moves back in with his dad.
After having lived with his father for a year, he returns back home only to be confronted with the last person he could have ever expected.
The person, he'd been looking for for the past thirteen years My quick glance turns into a full-on, unintentional stare. Holder soon befriends Sky and starts to spend more time with her, but Sky herself doesn't seem to have any idea who Holder is. She doesn't remember anything from what happened before she was taken away from her home and family when she was just five years old.
The more time they spend together, the more Holder starts to fall in love with the girl Sky is now and the more he wishes that she wouldn't be Hope so that their present won't be affected by the events that happened in the past. But tonight? Tonight I fell in love with Sky. And if she does find out the truth, how I'll it effect her relationship with Holder? In Losing Hope we find out how Holder struggles with knowing the truth but being unable to confide in anyone about it.
It's not an easy journey, but we all know that eventually they do get their much deserved happy ending. When you wrapped your arms around me and held me, I knew that no matter what happened with my life you were my home.
In fact, Holder's side of the story made me even shed more tears than the Sky's story and a huge reason for that were the letters added thoughout the story.
Aal of them but one were written by Holder to his sister Les, but the one that tripped me the most was view spoiler [the one written by Les herself hide spoiler ]. There are so many more wonderful and memorable quotes I highlighted throughout the story and that I could include in my review, but I feel like you should really read it for yourself in order to grasp the true message behind this story and it's powerful words.
It's a story about losing hope, being hopeless, but being able to find hope once again in the arms of love Feb 09, destini mia rated it it was amazing Shelves: A story about love.
And forgiveness. And then he sees her. And gets to know her. And falls in love with her. There are two sides to every story. Honestly, I knew I was going to like Losing Hope , but I was afraid that it was going to be a lot like Hopeless , and therefore, a little boring.
The writing was phenomenal. The author pulls you in and I was experiencing everything with them like I was right there. I didn't want to put it down for a second. I was hooked. Like, wrap my iPad in ziploc bag and read while I shower, hooked. There was so much guilt and pain. I really felt for him in this book, even more than I did in the first one. His guilt and pain over what happened to Les had me tearing up a few times.
You knew I would be the one to find you and the fact that you knew that and you still killed yourself? I was so mad because you let me die, too. And the weight of walking away from Hope… was devastating. In Losing Hope , I really began to understand Holder. There were a few times in book one where I would question him but now I really know what went on and how precious Sky was to him. With everything they have been through, they deserved each other.
If anything would make me believe in soulmates, it would be Holder and Sky.
You know I would do whatever I could to take away your pain, right? She nods, never pulling her gaze from mine, even for a second. I need to know you love me like that. You'll fall in love with the characters, the writing, and the story. Just stunning. View all 45 comments.

Jun 27, Jennifer Kyle rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you had read my review for Hopeless http: Not until you read Losing Hope can a reader sit back and fully absorb the beauty of the full puzzle. Once again, a reader could highlight a majority of the book seeing as Colleen Hoover is a brilliant weaver of words.
Don't hate me, but I gave up on two popular books that came out with alternate pov of the same stories. That being said, this is definitely worth the read and I have no regrets. Even though there are scenes that were the same in this book and the outcome is the same there are additions to even the ending that complete the overall picture. How anyone not remember being stolen from her own home? From her best friend? How can she not remember me? But everything wrong with her is everything that draws me in and makes her perfect.
Readers will love Dean's pov and live and love him even more if possible! View all 34 comments. I just didn't realize I'd wait until the year was finally over to read it.
But New Year's Resolution partially accomplished! Got a few more books to read to do so. It's been a while since I read Hopeless, and that went in my favor when reading this book.
Because it had been almost 2 years since reading the fir 3. Because it had been almost 2 years since reading the first book, reading from Holder's point of view was a fresh perspective and didn't feel like a reread of a book I already read. In a way I am sad and glad I waited so long to read this book. Sad because it's really good but glad for reasons stated above, it was like reading something new.
I recommend this book to all Colleen Hoover and Hopeless fans, it's a real treat for those who love her books. In order to miss someone, that means you were privileged enough to have them in your life to begin with. View all 19 comments. Feb 08, Jacqueline's Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: What can I say… I absolutely loved Hopeless and is probably if not my favorite read of all time. Thank you!!! Oh lord, who knew dry humping and NOT kissing was so freaking hot!
I want to go into my kitchen right now and force husband to make me dinner, just so I can make-out with him or have him grope me. What made Hopeless such a great read was all the dynamics that went on, like Sky unraveling her past and Holder making Sky whole again. Now, what makes Losing Hope such a great read was seeing the inner struggles Holder was dealing with and how he overcame them.
Oh and the things that come out of his mouth… You can hold my hand, you can run your fingers through my hair, you can straddle me while I feed you spaghetti, but you are not getting kissed tonight. To this day, I compare that scene to other scenes in my current reads and there is just no comparison. This is me saying yes You were always there, you know. EVERY single person in this freakin' world. I don't wanna spoil this amazing story for you: It was.
And I'm so grateful I got to read this ARC before it was released because I'm sure the wait would have been absolute torture. My expectations were high, and well, this is Colleen Hoover we are talking about, so I wasn't the least worried.
Using and adapting some of those perfect words by the author: I've loved Hopeless since I read it back in January. But today? Today I fell in love with Losing Hope.
Those of you who have read Hopeless you pretty much know what the story is about and well, why read this book then if all the mistery has been revealed? Let me tell you that there is SO much more to know.
Reading this story again from Holder's POV is a gift and being inside his head is a privilege. The book starts right before Les, Holder's twin sister, makes a decision that will shatter Holder and his family's life, again. He is the boy who lost Hope and he could never recover himself from that, and now, he is completely broken. Fortunately he meets Sky and discovers that after all, he might not be completely hopeless.
She might be the one to put him back together in so many different ways, because she was his past and she now could become his future.
You all know what comes after that, cute but absolutey hot moments, also completely heartbreaking , that keep you hooked until the very end. It's painful to read all that guilt and pain from Holder's POV, but it's also so powerful how little by little he starts to heal , the incredible way he expresses his feelings by writing to his sister.
It's so totally worth it. It's incredible how a man, a monster, can make so much harm and at the same time create as a consequence such a beautiful and perfect story of two people who are meant to be together, even if for a while, they were forced to be apart.
Once again, this story broke my heart and put it back together, as if it was the first time. View all 47 comments. Feb 11, Kellie Maddox-Ward rated it it was amazing Shelves: You are an amazing author and I loved every minute of it! Thank you thank you thank you! View all 3 comments.
So, I see there's no point in completing a book I already know what happens in it. View all 6 comments. Apr 07, Geri Reads rated it it was amazing. CoHo has done it again with Losing Hope.
I mean, why not write a book with dual POV in the first place. Anyway, CoHo has written something very insightful about why she wrote Losing Hope on her blog, which you can find here.
Now onto our review In a nutshell, Losing Hope is more than just a retelling of Hopeless. Yes, we know what happened already so why should we bother reading the same story again? Well, as I mentioned above there is more to it than just retelling the same story in Hopeless. Les is not really new but we get to know her a little better here. We also get to know the enigma that is Dean Holder. It's been a long time since I've read Hopeless and I have actually forgotten how swoony Holder can be.
I swear, if you loved him in Hopeless, you will fall in love with him more in this book, if that's even possible. And you get to see his tortured and wounded side, which was just totally heartbreaking. In this book, we also get to explore or at least, we get a clearer picture of the relationship between Les and Holder.
Those journal entries had me bawling like a baby. And the fact that Holder poured out his feelings to his sister through that journal was just heartbreaking. And although we pretty much knew what happened to Les, as it was already revealed in Hopeless, reading it again from Holder's POV was just gut-wrenching.
Plus of course, we really get to see how Holder felt about Sky from the moment he saw her and his developing feelings towards her. I mean really, I'm 34 years old but their story still gets to me. I just love the way CoHo writes her books. There's an honesty and openness, coupled with her effortless prose that makes reading her books easy. Easy in a sense that the story just flows wonderfully, from the highs to the lows, through the conflicts and resolutions without the reader ever feeling duped or short-changed.
There are no purple prose here, folks. It's just concise and straightforward writing. Nothing more. And it works every time. It's definitely worth reliving Holder and Sky's story all over again.

I liked Sky as much as I in the first book and the connection she and Holder have is one of the amazing things in this book. I'm in love with the whole girl. A book about him would be the greatest thing ever!
I really don't know what to say. I loved it. Both in time and in length. View all 38 comments. Feb 07, Tessa Teevan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just got this from NetGalley!!
More Holder?! Holder's POV? View all 4 comments. Because I can't keep my honesty to myself, I'm going to let you in on a little secret.
I really wasn't that excited about a book from Holder's POV!! And the acapella choir sang, "WHAT!!? Don't get me wrong I was excited, but not for the right reasons. I was more excited about getting to read something else written by Colleen Hoover and less excited about what it actually was.
If the woman wrote the insert directions on a box of tampons, I 4. If the woman wrote the insert directions on a box of tampons, I don't care what point of view it was written in; I'd just have my period all the time!!
My apprehension sprung from my doubt. Do I need more from Hopeless? Do I even want more from Hopeless? Leave it to Colleen Hoover to give me something I didn't even know I wanted. She gave me more.
More experiences. More characters. More story. Yes, you are reading a story you already know, but in Losing Hope Colleen Hoover gives us additional pieces we didn't get before. Pieces that make the story whole. Pieces that will shock your heart and cause your emotions to bleed. Stuff I seriously didn't see coming. The new parts of the story are what I loved the most, and Daniel. Sweet weened baby Jesus, Daniel.
He needs his own book! I loved all things him. I also loved the scene with him, Holder, and Breckin. Daniel brought the more, and I couldn't get enough.
But when it comes to Colleen Hoover, will I ever? The reason I didn't rate this as high as Hopeless is actually more about my emotions and less about the writing. I couldn't pretend not to know what I already knew, and though having those experiences from another perspective was amazing, they weren't as strong as they were the first time around.
Not because of anything Colleen did. Only because I'd already had those experiences and emotions once, and it didn't hit me as hard the second time around.
However, she did find away to create new emotions and allowed me to experience things in a new way. There were also moments where I wished I was feeling more of what Holder was feeling instead of just seeing what he was seeing. So yes, there will be repetition. Yes, you will know what's going to happen. This is a way to relive a beloved story from a different angle, a different perspective. We get extra story, extra characters, and things we didn't know before.
If you don't want that, then don't read it For every fan that wanted more Holder, for every fan that wanted to experience the story from his point of view. A story through his eyes.
It isn't about capitalizing or making money; it's about giving something back to her readers. This book is a gift, and I just want to say thank you!! More reviews at: View all 11 comments. Apr 04, Nikita rated it it was ok. Have to add it I give up!
Feb 10, Monisha marked it as to-read Shelves: Colleen Hoover just posted a teaser from Losing Hope Ahh, Can't Wait!!!! We on for tonight? The last thing I feel like doing tonight is going out. Not to Breckin, not to Daniel, not even to Sky. My back is against the locker and Daniel is laughing. How you led her on for days and then just walked away like she was a waste of your time? He drops his eyes down to my arm.
Down to the tattoo. He inhales a calming breath and slowly looks back up at me. She deserves someone who realizes that.
Someone who appreciates her. Before I even have the chance to tell Daniel to refrain, he begins to lunge forward toward Breckin.
I quickly step in between them and shove Daniel against the locker with my arm, keeping it pressed against his chest. You proved to her on Monday what a badass you are. Have at it! The last thing I want to do is hit him. Why would I hit him when everything he just said to me was the absolute truth? I turn around and open my locker, then grab my backpack and car keys. I pull my backpack onto my shoulder and walk away. And an even closer close-up.
Go ahead. Stare for a while. I know so , because I did so. I stalked errm followed him at Griffin Peterson Now, off you go ladies. View all 12 comments. Thinking she is someone he used to know, he chases after her only to find out it's not her. They keep "running" into each other This is basically the same story as Hopeless just from the male character's POV. Because of that, I'm linking my review here: It was interesting getting Holder's POV.
I don't why I was taken back by how intense he is especia 4. I don't why I was taken back by how intense he is especially since I thought that in the first book. I guess just getting all his thoughts and reasonings made it even more so. There were some extra scenes that weren't in the first book, mainly at the beginning and mostly having to do with Les.
It is hard to read and pretty depressing. My heart went out to Holder even more Holder is right, "the word devastated should be reserved for brothers, too. I also got a kick out of the chapters - the half and three-fourths I always felt like they were going to be really emotional. And it was great rereading my favorite lines and the things I loved Her baking and his cooking, their reading books and "chapter breaks", holding pinkies and looking at the sky when you're sad It was nice getting to see more of Holder's relationship with Daniel and Breckin and it made me laugh when they were playing Modern Warfare.
I liked that Holder knew right away how special Breckin was to Sky. There are a few new insights to things that happened that added to the story. I'm not sure how I feel about Holder not being told. The last letter made me laugh and it was left open for Favorite quotes: Way too right. Way too long overdue. I squeeze my eyes shut and attempt to deny my conscience the satisfaction of being right.
You stole the biggest piece of my heart that night. Eagerly waiting for this book!! Cover is so 'I want to hug Holder's pain away' types! P ; We even get a blurb!! Am I seeing this right???? D Tell me its not a dream!! Jun 08, Angela Richardson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just stunning Ms Hoover!

Feb 07, Lindsay rated it it was amazing. Im so excited!!! Mar 29, Jenny - TotallybookedBlog rated it it was amazing. Reviewed for Totallybookedblog. There are not enough accolades to express how wonderfully moving this book was. God, why does every single thing about her throw me off like this? The complete opposite in fact. Because of the way Losing Hope is crafted, the story feels new, fresh and very different and for that reason I urge you to please read Hopeless before embarking on your experience of Losing Hope.
Whilst these two books do intertwine, they both have a completely different feel, and as such both books are a must read in order for you to fully grasp the experience that is Sky and Holder. All she did was hug me back, but little does she know she just knocked a whole lot of life back into me.
Getting inside Holders head was a revelation. If you thought you knew Holder in Hopeless then think again because you are in for a whole world of new experiences as we live and breathe the pain, conflict and the utter despair this man has felt over his past.
You are definitely in for an emotional ride in this one. That kiss. The bracelet. The realisation. All of it. Being with her had me thinking about tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and next year and forever. We are there with him every painful step of the way and afforded a truly different version through Holders voice. And what a beautiful, tragic, heartbreaking, yet at times very witty and fabulous story this is.
Hold onto your hearts in this one folks because it will be shattered. Hearing Holder express the depth of sorrow that has consumed him broke my heart.
When I touch her…I want her to feel it. I want every single thing I say to her and every single thing I do to her to have significance. I cried through it and after it. But I also laughed. Out loud, at times as that trademark Ms Hoover wit is brought to the forefront once again.
I loved the banter between Sky and Holder in Hopeless and in LH we have more of that and the addition of Daniel who cracked me up. Daniel is hilarious and the interaction between him and Holder is priceless. I really did giggle out loud and he gave me some fantastic crude new sayings! His humour and the wonderful interaction between all the characters perfectly offsets the sadness you feel throughout the book. This author sure knows how to lighten your heart one minute and crush it the next with a simple turn of the page.
As soon as I see the first words written on top of the page, my heart comes to a screeching halt. The depth of this character is immense. Your heart will ache for him in ways you never imagined. Holders voice is staggering. The way this story is presented is sheer brilliance. I am very conscious not to say much about this book as to give anything away, and not afford other readers the same experience I garnered from Losing Hope would sadden me indeed.
The expected becomes the unexpected and I unashamedly snotty cried. I pace the sidewalk for a while, trying to figure out what to do.
How the hell did I allow it to get to this point. In Losing Hope she once again achieved the impossible. She managed to turn an existing story, told from an alternative POV into something incomparable. If any reader out there is questioning whether or not to read Losing Hope all I can say is please do not give it a second thought. You HAVE to pick this one up because to not do so would be depriving yourself of a rare and beautiful reading experience that should not be missed.
Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same. Hopeless Series - Colleen Hoover. Christina Robinson 13 audio files.
