Losing Hope

Losing Hope
By: Colleen Hoover

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 received an ARC copy through Net Galley for an honest review.

Following the same story from Colleen Hoover's Hopeless, Losing Hope is written from Holder's point of view. If you haven't already read Hopeless, you better get your ass on it!! You may be able to read Losing hope without reading Hopeless before but I don't think you will enjoy Holder as much.

Now onto the actual Review =)
“Should I really tell her how that made me feel? How I thought for sure Les had something to do with it or that it was divine intervention or a freaking miracle? Because I honestly feel like it was too perfect to be chalked up to coincidence.”
Hooked. Desperate. Enthralled. Chilled. These are words that I would describe myself feeling as I read Losing Hope. I thought Hopeless was a mind blowing story written to ring a person dry of feelings but it has nothing on Losing Hope.

I was HOOKED on Holder. I could see the pain that he had to go through, what he dealt with on a daily basis and it just broke my heart.

I was DESPERATE on seeing Holder get his happy ending and not have to read his pain all over again.

I was ENTRALLED with how Colleen made this same story so much different then when she was writing Hopeless. It was a completely different feeling and even though the story was the same and you knew the ending, this book took a life of its own in my head and was so much better then Hopeless. (which is a hard thing to beat!)

I was CHILLED to the bone over the depth of emotion that Holder and Sky felt throughout the book. Just WOW!

Losing Hope delves deeper into the feelings and obstacles that Holder has to go through to find Hope. I never expected to feel so strongly over Holder as I did when I started the book. He has gone through so much that really makes you route for him. Even when he forces himself away from Sky, he does it against so much powerful emotions that it really was hard to believe he stayed away for so long.

Overall I believe it was one of the best second POV stories I have ever read. It felt like reading a new book. Even though you knew how it was going to end, the feelings that Holder goes through to get there is unknown to you. Beautiful story that I would recommend to anyone who has read Hopeless because there is such a deeper story behind Holder that this book shows us.
