Hopeless (Hopeless #1) by Colleen Hoover

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.


5 + Heart Shattering, Breathtaking stars!!!!! 

This damn book was AMAZING! The Edge of Never kind but twisted and fucked up. 

There was so much sexual tension between the two characters up to half of the book or so. I understood  why so much platonic treatment andby the end the meaning of her emotional detachment (poor sky, it sucked) but still it is one of the best books/series I have ever read. And it was hilarious, sad, and embarrassing as well.

This book deserves my "book boyfriend, favorite-books, favorite-series, to-read-again, twisted, and twisted-as-fuck" bookshelves. It is so wrong and so good at the same time *sigh*

This book made me laugh and cry so, so much... I wasn't expecting so much tears. Unfortunately I love reading and the plot was so very addictive.

Holder always had a way to make Sky feel uncomfortable in a good/bad way. The bickering and banter between them was just too funny. This is one of few stories that I think I know what is happening but three chapters later the book takes a left turn instead of right and so on.

You will judge the integrity, morale and state of mind of some characters and even when they did wrong or broke the law you feel sympathy for them. This an emotional gray story because nothing is black or white.

You won't understand Holders behavior until the end... and then to fully understand what he went through you'll have to read "Losing Hope" Because yeah! that book tells the same story but with Holder's POV and then some other secrets are revealed there. 

Why I waited so long to read this Series? God just knows... This story makes you appreciate what you have given in life, good and bad.

***Spoiler Alert***

Fav Quotes/Moments:

"Tell your daddy's I said thank you."

"In all seriousness, Sky. I noticed you in class today and it's obvious you're new here, too. And after seeing the stripper money fall out of your locker before fourth period, then witnessing your non-reaction to it, I knew we were meant to be. Also, I figured if we teamed up, we might prevent at least two unnecessary teenage suicides this year. So, what do you say? Want to be my very bestest friend ever in the whole wide world?"

"He flashes me his dimple-laden grin and faint. No... Literally. I fainted. And based on the ache in my shoulder and the dirt and gravel embedded in my cheek, it wasn't a beautiful, graceful fall."

"Your cookies suck ass. And you're really not that pretty."

"There's nothing like the guilt you feel when there's room in your heart to love evil."

And... That fucking ending... I got chills and tears and EVERYTHING!!!! I read it over and over again. It was just so sad and beautiful together.

"And once again in my new world full of heartache and lies, this hopeless boy somehow finds a way to make me smile."
