We get a good glimpse of his emotions during Hopeless but that isn’t the same as the entire story from his point of view.
Hopeless is also a five bright glittery stars. Just a fabulous series. These characters just grab hold and don’t let go even after the last word has been written. I don’t remember if I cried during Hopeless but I definitely sobbed during this one. Amazing writing and amazing story.
Colleen handles these sensitive subject matters with great precision. High school is tough and I've never personally known someone to die during that time so this is a new experience for me. Colleen has covered all the bases.
Colleen adds a nice balance to this story considering the topic of death and kidnapping. There's humor mixed in with grief. There's anger mixed in with happiness. There's fighting mixed in with loving. There's intimacy mixed in with cheating.
I read Hopeless maybe 3 years ago and have wanted to read Losing Hope for those 3 years. I am amazed how easily all the information came back so simply. It was as if I read it yesterday. That story imprinted itself on my mind forever. I'm not one to remember details of a story but this one is still fresh in my mind. It has a draw to me. It touched my heart.
Holder is playing the part of a patient guy and its intoxicating. The flirting is seductive. I'm imprinting each moment in my mind. I love how Holder wants every moment to have meaning. Each shared encounter ship has to be relevant. I'm driven crazy by the sweet torture of Holder and his appreciation for Sky when he's adoring her.
I'm so wrapped up this story for a second time and I can't pull myself away. There is no part of the story that is easy to step away from. From one chapter to the next I find myself eagerly turning the pages. I love Holders character. I find Colleen has a way of capturing the innocence of a young male character. It's so sweet and pure. It makes me ache to have that tenderness.
Colleen you have a brilliant mind. I can see why people love you so much. You have this ability to look at all possible scenarios. You are like the devils advocate. Someone who can understand every possible path and give clarity to that perspective. That's what draws the reader. It's emotional and dynamic.

All the stars in the sky..
Beautifully written book. I am wrung right out..Colleen, you are a friggin goddess!
I was quite late coming to the Hopeless party, which I will be forever slapping myself for! So this time around, I was lucky enough to read an ARC of Losing Hope.
Reading it was from Holder's POV, I was apprehensive that the story would be repetitive and that that would steal some of my enjoyment of it. But I was Hopelessly wrong...and very glad to be!
Colleen was able to script Holder's thoughts, feelings, actions in such a captivating way that made me feel I knew Holder so well, so dearly. I was heartbroken from the first chapter, where we were given piece by piece Holder's world falling apart. I'm quite choked writing this to be honest.
To understand his thoughts and hopes when he first met Sky, and listening to his motivations as their friendship deepens, only assisted to enhance the already beautiful story that sits on my keeper shelf...
His letters to Les were his therapy, and his opportunity to vent as time passed and his acceptance of living without her. Truly poignant and another opportunity to grab for the tissues.
As the story develops, we were enchanted by his live/love for her, dripping off every page. *sigh*
I could not recommend this book enough, but have made an attempt to at every opportunity. Great praise for Colleen..and thank you.
I loved the journal letters to Les and it was a very creative way of weaving Holder's twin into the story. I loved how Holder was emotional without being sappy, and I felt so sad for all the guilt he was carrying around over both Les and Hope.
I also loved getting to know Daniel, though I think it's a little weird that he didn't feature at all in Hopeless. I thought he was hysterical and quite a unique character.
Colleen sure knows how to write captivating male characters and Holder has skyrocketed to the top of my Book Boyfriend list.
If you have read Hopeless then you MUST read this book. Highly Recommended.
Colleen’s trade mark beautiful writing has a lyrical almost poetic feel to it, the beauty of the words belie the horror lurking within the pages. There is a sense of despair that emanates from within the words, a feeling of inevitability you just can’t escape. The feeling of foreboding increases with each page turned. The prologue within Hopeless sets the tone – repetition of the prologue within the main part of the story reinforces the imagery and emotions sharply within the imagination immersing the reader completely.
Very difficult issues are dealt with – as a reader and also as a mother I found myself trying to make sense of the incomprehensible. The mind is a fantastic thing, protecting itself from trauma. Revelations in the form of dreams/flashbacks pave the way for the brutality of the ultimate exposé as the plot peaks.
Sky is a wonderful character, there are so many facets to her, it’s like peeling the layers of an onion. She has a terrific relationship with her mother and her best friend. Although some of her actions are questionable the reasoning behind them only adds to endear her to the reader.
First impression of Holder make you question his intentions toward Sky. His anger management issues count against him until you scratch away that hard shell of his. I have to say I loved seeing his point of view in Losing Hope, however, there was an incident at the start of that book which really altered my opinion of him. I didn’t like it one bit and it took quite a while for me to get over it. Yes, I am aware that grief causes people to do things they normally wouldnt’ but still, really didn’t like that incident :*(
The chemistry between Sky and Holder is electric but it is the tenderness and emotion they share which makes their relationship tug at even the hardest of hearts. Best non-kissing scene EVER ♥
At the risk of being pedestrian, the thing that stands out in these books is that sense of HOPE. While events in our lives, especially the traumatic ones, shape the people we become, they do not define us.
NEVER LOSE HOPE♥
To be honest, I much prefer reading from the male POV when it comes to matters of the heart. I want to know exactly what’s going through his mind and what’s he’s feeling when the character meets the girl of his dreams. This is exactly what we get in Losing Hope.
However, as fans of Hopeless will know, this is not all we get. Holder’s been through some incredibly tough times, which readers then get to experience through his eyes. Some of the book is very emotional, especially the final few pages, and this shocked me because I wouldn’t have thought Holder’s POV would have resulted in a more intense read. But it does and it’s excellent. Well worth a read.

Sky is the beacon of light Holder needs during this whole story and watching them both being able to lean on each other and help each other through the worst possible things that could happen to them is beautiful. Sky is strong and gorgeous and honestly, I love her bravery so much. No matter what she’s faced with she comes out fighting in the end and being able to see Holder’s thoughts on her throughout it is incredible. I do love and a appreciate a male POV.
Holder, this man is what every girl needs in her life. He’s handsome and strong and his will to fight for what he loves shines brightly. He makes mistakes and he owns up to them, he’s the first to acknowledge his wrong doings and sets about to make them right. The pain and heartbreak this guy goes through in this book leaves you bawling your eyes out and feeling for him but even with everything he goes through he barrels through like the amazing man he is.
Losing Hope is heartbreaking and beautiful. It’s a book about regret and forgiveness. It reaches a hard subject but Colleen writes it perfectly.
I forgot just how much I love this story, how much it consumed me when I first read it and I’m glad that I decided a re-read was needed because I just fell in love with Sky and Holder all over again.
