Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

Release Date: Out now!

Publisher: Atria

Pages: 336pgs

The Story

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.

The Review

A big thanks to the publisher on netGalley for accepting my request in reading this book early!

If you were blown away (majorly) like I was with Colleen Hoover's Hopeless and had pretty much adored Sky and Holder's romance in that particular book, then you'll definitely going to love this one without a doubt.

In LOSING HOPE, while the events of the story are exactly the same as Hopeless, however this time round the story is told through the perspective of Holder's character, which I'm sure will please many of Hoover's readers because honestly . . . we all love Holder. So while the story is basically the same as Hopeless's story, but we also get to see and learn plenty of other new things as well, especially about Holder as a person and what happened in the events before Hopeless's story had begun.

So on a whole, while I still preferred the first book to this one (mostly because Holder wasn't as hot as I thought he was or maybe it was his voice that was the problem here . . . I still don't know) but what I liked about this book apart from having Holder's perspective and everything else, was that we gain a much better and deeper insight and understanding with how Holder dealt with his current situation of his sister dying and not to mention with his and Sky's dark, messy and very complicated pasts. For those who have read the first book, Hopeless, you will know what I mean with that particular comment right there.

Overall, LOSING HOPE is yet again another great book coming from Colleen Hoover and she really cannot do any wrong with any of her books since I've loved every single one of them so far. So if you loved Hopeless then you're going to love this book just as much, especially if you're a major fan of Holder's character even if he's not entirely perfect in this book.

The Rating
4/5 stars
