Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

5 Stars

Losing Hope is the companion book to Hopeless and is the second installment in the Hopeless series.  This book is set in the POV of Dean Holder.

The readers get so much more of his story, heartache, and loss over not only his sister, Leslie, but of losing Hope all those years ago.  This emotional rollercoaster is as gut wrenching as the first not only rehashing Hopeless but adding a whole new light to Dean Holder’s character.  The compassion, love, and fear sets off this wave of emotion that only Colleen Hoover can bring to life in her writing and readers have grown to love. 

This book and author are definitely one-of-a-kind, the story is outstanding, and the characters are to die for.  Colleen Hoover never disappoints.  I fell on love with Dean Holder all over again.  And yes, Ms. Hoover you can always bring a tough girl to tears and you have done it again with Losing Hope.  Thank you for the ARC!


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
