Product Description

Product Description

Sometimes in life, in order to move forward you must face the past…
In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared and no memory forgotten, but Holder's past remains a mystery.
He is haunted by the little girl he let walk away from him and he has spent his entire life searching for her. He had hoped that he would finally gain closure and be able to rid himself of his guilt the moment they were reconnected. But he could not have anticipated that the exact opposite would occur and even more guilt and regret would be thrust upon him.
Sometimes in life, if we wish to move forward we must first dig deep into our past and make amends with it. In Losing Hope, readers will learn what was going on inside Holder's head during all those moments that left him feeling hopeless and see whether he can perhaps gain the peace he desperately needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Hopeful.... 9 July 2013
By Janey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
**ARC provided by Atria via NetGalley in return for an honest review**

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.

If you haven't read this book make sure you read hopeless first!
I've just read losing hope and it had me tears at the end, I absolutely loved the fact that losing hope is from holders point of view and you get to no a lot more about him&les and how much he actually loves sky/hope and it will just melt your heart and have you crying.
Well done collen hope there is a third!:)

4.0 out of 5 stars Holder's POV 12 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An engaging read with a realistic male POV--LOSING HOPE is another win for Hoover.

Holder's POV. That what it's all about, peeps. Holder's side of all the crazy events from HOPELESS, as well as extras from his childhood, the years in between, and the sweetest part of all--his letters to his sister Les that are threaded throughout in "handwritten" sections, which I thought was an absolutely perfect touch and a very clever idea from Hoover.

During HOPELESS, you'd have been forgiven for being slightly weirded out by Holder and his often confusing, and sometimes disturbing, behaviour. I know I was. He seemed to blow hot and cold without warning, and perhaps even had a little anger management problem sprinkled on the top. But that was before we knew about the thing. You know, the thing? Of course you do. Now that we do know about the thing, those exact same scenes as seen here in LOSING HOPE through Holder's eyes, suddenly make a whole truck load more sense, and were very enjoyable to read. Not to mention well-written, and with a very authentic sounding "boy" voice.

The only complaint I have about LOSING HOPE is that the end chapters--which really are all about Sky's character--felt slightly choppy and rushed when told from Holder's POV. Since he was only on the periphery during much of it, he had to do a lot of summarising, which of course isn't as satisfying as living it in all its pain-filled glory like we did in HOPELESS. Still, it's only a minor quibble, and didn't really detract from the book's appeal.

So basically, if you loved HOPELESS, you're going to love LOSING HOPE--and Holder--all over again. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 9 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
My review of Hopeless is a more balanced review dealing with both the emotion and the plot. I recommend you read that first as this is more a treatise of the effects both Hopeless and Losing Hope had on me as a reader. The plot of Losing Hope is stellar, that is beyond question, the emotion is devastating, the characters unforgettable. The on -

There was one word that described my experience reading Hopeless and writing its review: Brutal. I didn't think anything could surpass that but Losing Hope has destroyed me. Every emotion that I drowned in whilst reading Sky's story came flooding back and swept me under until by the end I felt like I was gasping for breath and could go on no longer. Needless to say I've pretty much curled up in a ball, trying to think all the happy thoughts since then.

I actually broke down sobbing at the dinner table telling my family about the book and couldn't eat. I'm sobbing now writing this review. I knew it would be affecting after how I let Hopeless in but I honestly didn't think Holder's story would be as brutal and upsetting. To be honest for most of the book I was able to remain at a distance from the story, a curious observer. I knew what was coming so I felt prepared. I could cope with all the shocks, I had cried with Sky, I knew Holder couldn't possibly be worse, after all, he was almost an observer like me right? Wrong.

Holder's grief is palpable. A pulsing entity of pain and sadness from page one.
