Losing Hope (Hopeless, # 2 ) by Colleen Hoover│Review

In the follow-up of Colleen Hoover's #1 New York Times bestseller Hopeless, the charming ad irresistible Dean Holder tells the passionate story that has melted thousands of hearts.

In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no felling 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 his crushing guilt he has felt for years. ut 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 possibly love this more than Hopeless, if that is even possible!!

Okay, so I went into this knowing that it was told in Holders POV (Point of View). I knew I would get the info that I wanted in Hopeless. What I got was so much more than I had ever hoped for!

First, I just want to say that I am in awe of Colleen Hoover and her capability to write and create such emotional characters in her books! 

I have to say, that this book would not be as funny as it was heart wrenching and emotional without our beloved sidekicks, Breckin and Daniel.

This book was everything I could ask for and more. Not only did we get to live the Hopeless through Holder's eyes, we got more background and such an emotional conclusion to Sky and Holder's story.

Colleen Hoover's love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled "Mystery Bob" and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest. Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write along story she titled, "Slammed." She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT's bestsellers list in May, 2012. She had since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT's bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term "author" still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn't work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
