Overview

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of Finding Cinderella and Losing Hope, the second installment of Sky and Dean’s love story.

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 reconnected.

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.

    This is NOT a new book. They just slapped on a different title and cover. Why do authors think they can get away with taking on old story, rewrite it from a different perspective with the same things happening like in the other book, same words, everything EXACTLY the same and pretend it's a new book? I've sworn off reading other authors because of this reason and I've just added this one as well. Maybe some readers will not remember that they've read this story before but I remember and I'm sure many others will. And to charge 8dollars for it is outrageous.

    If you have expectations of this being just Holders POV for Hope

    If you have expectations of this being just Holders POV for Hopeless YOU CAN NOT BE MORE WRONG!!!! In this book we get Holder, but we get a backstory his emotions, his reactions, we get answers to questions asked or left vague in Hopeless. Most of all we get to see the man stripped and bared, we see it all! I don't even know how to put in words the awesomeness of how this book made me feel. I really just want to say READ IT DANG IT AND THANK ME LATER and be done with it. 

    Holder, is a man that any parent would be proud to call their son. He is caring and smart and wonderful and just an awesome person all the way around. In this book we get a better sense of who he is and why he did certain things that he did in Hopeless. We see from when Les was alive and a bit into their bond. Colleen just has a way of incapsulating me into this world with her writing that as I am reading I can see the scenes playing before my very eyes.

    Finally seeing through Holders eyes the things he knew and the truths he had to face. I cried so hard reading Hopeless but Losing Hope had me just in sobbing hysterics. I believe I woke my hubby up during a really heartbreaking scene. He thought I was crazy but he held me and let me cry. He fell back to sleep mind you but at least he was there. As a mother my heart ripped apart and as I remember that scene, I am crying once again because I could feel the weight of that emotion. The feeling of loss and my heart just breaking not only for Holder but for his mother as wellI have read many many books but the way that Colleen writes whoa! she is magical because I felt every emotion, I was angry, I was sad, I was DEVASTATED, my heart broke, I blushed, I smiled, I laughed, I needed a hugI have read many many books but the way that Colleen writes whoa! she is magical because I felt every emotion, I was angry, I was sad, I was DEVASTATED, my heart broke, I blushed, I smiled, I laughed, I needed a hug!




    I still have to say the non kissing, non sex having scene is by far the BEST SCENE EVER!!! I didn't re-read Hopeless and I am glad I didn't because I don't feel like I missed a thing. I did remember a few scenes from Hopeless, that scene being one of them. Oh man it was just as good reading it through Holders eyes as it was through Sky's!!!
    Learning the real reason that Holder stayed away from Sky for that month it all just made so much scene it was like... AH HA....Lightbulb!!




    I can not put into this review just how awesome this book is. You need to read and experience the Hoover effect for yourself. That woman has magical fingers for writing and an extraordinary mind because the way she puts words together, its so full of emotion and beauty I want to pick her brain so I can absorb her awesomeness!




    I feel that 5 stars is not enough. She is just phenomenal.

    I am truly wondering if the readers who claim this is the same exact  book written from a different POV actually read the book?  I can only tell you that  there is a lot more depth to Holder's story.   Without giving too much away, as I do not appreciate those who give reviews and spoil the storyline, I will say this book is not just about Hope's story. This book focuses more on Holder...  his struggles through learning to cope with losing his sister, his innermost thoughts and feelings while getting to know Sky.  His day-to-day coping as well as his wonderful personal breakthrough at the end. It was an absolute joy to read!

    One long sob story. I'm half way in and bored out of my mind. This was advertised everywhere and I bought it thinking it had to be good. It only shows advertising is everything. Wish I could have my money back.

    Nice surprise

    I usually stay away from books which are "simply" the other main character's point of view because I've been burned before with stories that are almost identical to the previous one offering little if any new insight. This one was not at all like that. It added so much more dimension to the original story. It was almost like reading about a brand new character. I loved it. I liked it even more than the first one.

    I LOVED Hopeless. It is one of my all time favorite books (next to Slammed....also by Colleen Hoover). I have read This Girl, Slammed through Will's eyes. It was good, but I didn't think it flowed well. This book.....wow. This is how you should rewrite a book through someone else's eyes. 

    Here is my Goodreads review:

    Ok.My.Goodness. I knew this was going to be good, because Hopeless is one of the most amazing books I have ever read, but this book....wow. My heart is still aching and my tears are still falling. How in the world can someone write a book that is the same story I have already read, and yet it still completely shatters me like it is the first time I have read it? This is why Colleen Hoover is THE MOST AMAZING AUTHOR. PERIOD. 

    Here are some things (ramblings) on what made this book so amazing!
    1. The way it was written through Holder's POV during the same time period as Hopeless. I LOVED Slammed, and I liked This Girl, but it felt forced. 
    2. The cover. Oh.My.Goodness. Perfection.
    3. I loved the way Holder found the journal and wrote to Les.
    4. The letter Holder found at the end of the journal...tore my heart out!
    5. Just like the Hopeless, I loved the banter back and forth and the sarcasm. 
    6. I loved getting to know Daniel, and the way Hoover has set up her next book (Finding Cinderella) in the middle of this book. Very clever! ;-)
    7. I also loved that she had Sky read Slammed to Holder. Also, very clever! I love it when authors connect their books to each other. Its a great nod to their "book fans". Thank you Colleen Hoover!
    8. LOVED the twist that Les reveals about Hope/Sky in her note to Holder. And I'm also SO glad that Les didn't keep all that happened to her to herself.
    9. Not that Les could be replaced, but I was SO happy to see Holder's mom become so attached to Hope. I'm sure that she saw her as a daughter she lost, and this daughter was returned to her.
    10. The word devastated. Wow! The way it is talked about and explained. So powerful!

    Not bad

    Not enough changed or insight given to give reader a full on opposite POV.
    Changes to story were oresent but not from character opinion which doesnt "sound" very different.
    A lot of repeat conversation from Hopeles.
    If you enjoyed Hopeless a lot this still is worth a read.

    Amazing

    This book made me laugh, made me cry and made me want to read everything the author has ever written. An absolutely wonderful book. To see things from Holder's point of view and to be there while he learns to forgive himself for things outside of his control was beyond words. And anyone who says this is just a rehash of Hopeless has clearly not read the book. The two books together gives the story of Sky and Holder so much more depth than just one ever could have. This author is extremely talented.

    WOW

    Sometimes you read a book that is from the other person's point of view and it is usually just rehashed with a few added bonus scenes, but Losing Hope is totally the opposite of that.  This book answered so many questions that I had about the first book,, which I actually loved,  

    I loved how Holder found himself through writing in Les's journal, how he poured out his emotions through his writing, some were funny that made me laugh, and some made me shed a tear or two.  

    In all this was a great read read.

    From Hopeless to finding Hope. After meeting Holder in Hopeless

    From Hopeless to finding Hope. After meeting Holder in Hopeless I could read his point of view of pretty much anything.
    Even though I knew the story and knew what was coming I still loved reading the story through Holder's eyes and through his words in his letters to Les. It was like I liked the story again, I loved the story again. A story worth "living" again.
    If you have not read Hopeless, what the hell are you waiting for?

    Deja Vu

    OK , this was strange. I do like Coleen Hoovers writing. I loved Hopeless and I understand this was from Holders point of view. I kept thinking I'd read it all before! Actually kept going back to the other book comparing the storyline. Very much a rehash of Hopeless.
