Review ~ Losing Hope (Hopeless #2)

Losing Hope

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.



My *****5 Star***** Review

If you’re new to the Hopeless series, then you won’t want to read this review because it definitely will contain spoilers. Check out my review of Hopeless, the first book, HERE.

Losing Hope opened in a dramatic fashion with the suicide of Holder’s sister. We already know about this, but now we get to see what he went through, his thoughts and feelings, and how he dealt with it. One of those ways was by writing letters, and the letters just really made the book for me. I loved that upclose and personal view of Holder. The raw emotions were fantastic! Colleen had zero trouble portraying a male’s point of view!

The other thing that really caught my attention with this book was Daniel. His character was hilarious! Having read and loved Finding Cinderella, I enjoyed getting to see more of him. Really, though, even if I hadn’t read Finding Cinderella, Daniel was insanely funny and added a nice new flavor to the story. His character had me cracking up!!

There was a point in the middle of the story where I didn’t feel like I was getting anything fresh – just repeats of Hopeless, but it didn’t last long.

Then the story finishes with an amazing scene involving Holder’s mom, BUT I’m not going to spoil it for you. You’ll just have to read it yourself. 🙂

I can’t wait to see what Colleen has in store for us next!!!
Warnings: strong language, sexual content, suicide, violence
