BookWhisperer Review: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 am a huge Colleen Hoover fan! Hopeless has been sitting on my next reads file for a while, and I finally just jumped in. I always remember Hoover for her ability to create such an incredible love story. She is able to pull readers in so deep that it feels as though it is their very own story. The experience is so real and genuine that it overwhelms the senses at times. Hopeless was all that and more. This story was such an unexpected journey and took turns that I never would have anticipated. Sky is a unique girl with an unusual past that it is easy to see that her story will not be like any other. Only the reader never anticipates the true uniqueness of this story. The continuation of surprises just keep coming with this story, but the absolute splendor of the story is Hoover's ability to cause readers to question the clear reflection of right and wrong. In a world where things are not clearly black and white the question because if values truly determine what is right or wrong. In a world of darkness, there are times that this line will become so completely blurred that sometimes the right is hiding within the dark. This is not only a story of complicated reflection, but it is also a story of survival and second chances. In one book Hoover manages to take her readers through so many levels of emotion and contemplation. This experience was beyond exhilarating and insightful I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
