Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you hopeless than believing the liesThat’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 buriedSky 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

    Potential casting for Holder by Colleen ^^^ EVERYONE DROP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND READ THIS BOOK Hopeless utterly blew me away It was the kind of book that makes me want to stand on a rooftop and shout how amazing it is to the whole world Beautiful heart wrenching and uplifting5 stars One of best books of 2012 Colleen Hoover’s writing is absorbing captivating and flows so smoothly you barely feel the pages slipping byAfter just reading the prologue I Was Hooked and I just knew that I had to put my life on hold until I finished it It gives you a taste of where the story is headed and just grabs at your heart in a way that makes you just NEED to know When Sky meets Holder her life changes He is the first guy to make her heart skip a beat The first guy to really make her FEEL “I’ve never been swept off my feet I don’t get butterflies In fact the whole idea of being swooned by anyone is foreign to me Somehow in the course of sixty seconds this guy has managed to swoon me then terrify the hell out of me” Dean Holder was absolutely amazing With just a touch of bad boy lickable dimples a crooked smile and a tattoo this moody mysterious and endearing hot guy with a temper just utterly stole my heart “I saw a guy at the store after school and holy shit Six He was beautiful Scary but beautifulas soon as I looked at him it was like my entire body melted to the floor He was Wow” Deeply protective and totally swoony but with a bad rep he was so contradictory – warm cold Sweet sharp Just like Sky I just NEEDED to know about him And the I learned the the mystery deepenedI loved watching them get closer and closer Their chemistry was undeniable and their dialogue and banter was rapid fire and brilliant and just set my heart a flutterWhat they had was intense passionate and oh so REAL Every single thing they went though and did was believable and just made you wish you knew them in personI loved that the story was serious but little parts made me laugh out breaking up the emotionally charged scenes I swooned squeed proclaimed my undying love for the book and had to take breathers to wipe the tears that sprung up on me than onceI felt so in sync with Sky’s emotions and journey I felt like I went through all her emotions without ever once feeling disconnected Through her eyes I fell in love with Holder I felt her pain and confusion and I felt her healing She was a wonderfully strong brave heroine – the kind you want to look up to and make you feel proud ofThis book has the most beautiful intense breathtaking first kiss EVER without actually kissing Curious? You’ll have to read it and see But I am not kidding it was one of the best written kisses I’ve ever readI loved that the story was emotionally charged but with absolutely no stupidity All the characters’ reactions were understandable and just made me and sympathetic to them This isn’t to say that there wasn’t angst and heart clutching turmoil because there was The subject matter and themes are serious gut wrenching and very mature This book is definitely 17 New Adult “Sometimes you have to choose between a bunch of wrong choices and no right ones You just have to choose which wrong choice feels the least wrong” I have to say that I didn’t see the big reveal coming I had my suspicions about one part of the story but the other part totally took me by surpriseAll the pieces of the story just build and build layer upon layer of things you don’t even realize are important until the secrets come out and the cascade of emotions from them just crash into you and take your breath away “Life is real and sometimes it’s ugly and you just have to learn how to cope” This is a quite simply a beautiful story about love and survival About hope and healing About life and death About coping with tragedy and finding forgiveness and peace About being strong About being a victim but also a survivor I honestly do not have one single complaint about this book I have entire pages of my copy highlighted Its THAT goodEvery word every sentence every scene puts the imagery of the story into your head so vividly that you feel as though you are right there watching the events unfoldThis book NEEDS to be made into a movieI can't wait to buy this book in paperback Its going to be going right up on my top favs shelf 3This is one of those stories that will stay with you foreverAnd yes there is a HEA “Fuck all the firsts Sky The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers” PS Thank you Colleen Hoover for providing me with an ARC to review I'm so excited for all of you to read itFor of my reviews visit Aestas Book BlogAnd come join the Aestas Book Blog Facebook Page
