Synopsis:
Sometimes in life, in order to move forward you must face the past . . .

#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover held readers spellbound with her novel Hopeless, the story of what happened when a troubled girl named Sky encountered a long-lost childhood friend, Dean Holder. With Holder’s help, Sky uncovered shocking family secrets and came to terms with memories and emotions that had left deep scars.

Hopeless was Sky’s story. Now, in Losing Hope, we finally learn the truth about Dean Holder. Haunted by the little girl he couldn’t save from imminent danger, Holder’s life has been overshadowed by feelings of guilt and remorse. He has never stopped searching for her, believing that finding her would bring him the peace he needs to move on. However, Holder could not have anticipated that he would be faced with even greater pain the moment they reconnect.

In Losing Hope, Holder reveals the way in which the events of Sky’s youth affected him and his family, leading him to seek his own redemption in the act of saving her. But it is only in loving Sky that he can finally begin to heal himself.
 
 
My Review:
5 out of 5 stars
★★★★★
 
I finished this book in less than a day, which seems to be pretty standard for me with a Colleen Hoover book. She just has this way of grabbing you from the very first page and holding your attention until the very end. We get Holder’s POV in this book so I knew what was going to happen, but I was still taken on an emotional roller coaster. I felt all of the same emotions as I did in the previous book. 
 
My heart hurt for Sky but in this book, it also ached for Holder, for everything he endured and the guilt he carried throughout his life. 
 
I liked that we got to see some things and get some insight about things that we didn’t get in Hopeless. That added a fresh twist to this book and made it an even better read. I also liked that we got a little tease of what’s going to come in Finding Cinderella. I’m looking forward to reading that one next.

  1. Great review! I really need to get on the Colleen Hoover train. I got her book “Too Late” a while ago, but have yet to read it.
