Losing Hope by Colleen HooverIn 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.


Losing Hope is the follow up to Hopelesss. This story is written from Dean Holder’s perspective.  Dean has been torn up for 13 years, along with his sister Les (Leslie).  You see when they were all three children were 5 years old Hope (aka Sky) was take from their lives by a stranger right before Dean’s (aka Holder) eyes.  Holder has searched every face he has ever seen, every day of his life for the past 13 years, all these years looking for the girl he loved and let get away.  He has been eaten up ever since it had happened never really understanding he was only 5 years old and powerless.  That day changed everyone’s life around him forever.  Then one day at the grocery store, boom, it can’t be true, can it?  Can it really be her?  His heart is beating so loud that he feels everyone in the store can hear it.  He has to follow her to the parking lot to talk with her…  I have to say be for this point in the story I was starting to feel that this story was very depressing and sad and that I just might not be able to finish it.    I am so glad I did.  The twists and turns some of which I knew were coming others not at all.  Wow, I am ready for a non-thinking book now though.  A very good book that I am glad I decided to finish and I highly recommend.  Warning though this is not a book for a teen.  As a parent of a 12 ½ year old (would kill me if I did not put the ½) and 3 grown children and 1 grandchild (young 53, thank-you very much, lol.) The subject matter in this storyline is a little heavy emotionally for anyone I feel under the age of 18 without the parent reading it first so that the parent and child can discuss afterward. Book provided by NetGalley.
