***Jenn's 5 Star Review of Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover***

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.

Jenn's Review
I was so excited to learn that Losing Hope was going to be written! I didn’t know what to expect, other than hearing the story from Dean Holder’s prospective. I didn’t care that it may be the same story as Hopeless just from his POV. Instead, I got so much more. It was still beautiful but Holder’s heartbreak was twofold. Losing his sister, which we go through with him and the loss of Hope when he was a child.

Holder learned to deal with his sister’s death in his own way and it broke my heart every time he opened the notebook. But he was so angry. We find out what happens when he get sent to his dad’s for a year and why he comes back. And that is when he’s at the grocery store and sees Sky. As he is getting to know her, he doesn’t want her to be Hope but he does. She has a good life and sees that she is loved by her mom. He doesn’t want to disrupt her life but we know at this time he has no idea why she was taken.

I loved being in Holder’s head, especially after he saw the bracelet. You all know what I’m talking about. It was so hard for him to learn the truth. This is another part when he just wanted Sky to be Sky. And he had to keep this to himself. This tore him apart and we also get to see Breckin in a new light. We all need a friend like Breckin! I love him even more.

Not every part of Losing Hope was a repeat of Hopeless and that made it even better. Ms. Hoover also added a little extra at the end that we didn’t get before. Just a little taste into their future and I ate it up! Once again, she has given us a beautiful gift and if I could rate it more than 5 stars, I so would. I am very much looking forward to what she gives to us next.

About Colleen

I love music. LOVE music. Namely The Avett Brothers, Lumineers, Pink, Eminem. I have eclectic taste? If you have any recommendations, send them my way!

I'm addicted to diet pepsi and could tell you in a taste-test which restaurant it came from. It's a serious addiction, I tell you.

I get stoked whenever I get a message from goodreads saying I have a new friend request...so request me, dangit!
