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 one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past 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.
BFF K’s Review
Hopeless was my first Colleen Hoover novel. I think it changed my life. It might be one of the only books that I haven’t told many friends about. I had it on the informal ‘best reads’ list that I kept before the blog. But, I didn’t effuse about it on social media or with my friends. In fact, I think BFF A is the only one I even told, ‘you have to read this.’ The funny thing is that I loved this book so much, I just wanted it to be mine. I wanted my thoughts and feelings about the book to stay with me. I didn’t want to share it with others or dissect it, it just wanted it to live in my heart and mind. Weird huh?
After starting this book, I flipped through the pages frantically, all night long, dying to see what would happen between Holder and Sky. I never expected the twists and turns this story would take. Since reading Hopeless, I’ve devoured everything written by Colleen Hoover and never looked back.
More About the Author:
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 a long 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 has 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.
Colleen’s newest novel, UGLY LOVE, released August 5th, 2014. She is currently working on a new novel, CONFESS, which she is writing as fast as she can before she wakes up from this crazy dream.

You can also find her on her blog at www.colleenhoover.com where she holds a daily book-a-day giveaway, or on her very active Facebook page at www.facebook.com/authorcolleenhoover where she loves to give away more free stuff when her husband isn’t looking.
Colleen also wants the world to know that writing short biographies in third person is incredibly awkward.
