Series: Hopeless #1
Author: 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.-Goodreads
Review: Wow, this book was a wonderful surprise. I was expecting a light, high school romance but this was SO much more. The relationship development between Sky and Holder was well done and the additional issues they had to deal with were extremely hard hitting and sad. This book really had an emotional punch and while it's quite cheesy at times, I loved every minute of it.
