Hopeless is a book experience (It really is nothing short of an experience) that is so real and raw at times that I laughed, cried, and swooned right along with Sky. Without giving too much away, Sky is an incredibly sheltered girl who has begged her adopted mother to start public high school for her senior year. After a rather rotten first day, she happens to meet Holder after a trip to the grocery store. After a couple of chance meetings, Holder's intense emotional roller coaster confuses Sky yet attracts her at the same time. Holder does seem like he is playing with Sky in the beginning but once the story unfolds his emotions and intense feelings are explained.
I was already a huge fan of Colleen Hoover from the Slammed Series. I am so on a quest for a signed book. She has a way of writing raw realistic characters that climb inside your heart and live there a long time. She infuses the story with beautiful emotions and humor that always has me reading way past my bedtime. Hopeless is even better than the Slammed Series. I have no doubt that this will not only be picked up by a large publisher but I predict a movie for this one too. There is so much strong emotional content that gives you a roller coaster ride of emotions and plot twists. I do not want to give even a little bit of a spoiler away because this book must be experienced and savored. I highlighted so much of this book that I don't think there is any page without a note. I butterflying lived it.
A Couple of Fav Quotes:
"Let me inform you of something", he says in a low voice. "The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you've never felt anything when someone's kissed you, then no one's ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing You" ~Holder *swoon*
"But what I can't handle Sky? What drives me crazy and makes me want to put my hands and mouth all over you every single inch of you? It's the fact that you just said 'The Jerk' is your favorite movie ever. Now That? he drops his mouth to mine until our lips are touching. "That's incredibly F'ing hot and I'm pretty sure we need to make out more." ~ Holder
"This kiss is just like he is--studied and never hurried" ~OMG right there.....:)
