Review: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Synopsis:
Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies.
That's what Sky Davis realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she's never had before.  He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of their first encounter.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. Unable to deny their intense connection, Sky finally caves to his unwavering pursuit.  However, she soon discovers that Holder's erratic and unpredictable behavior comes with a very good explanation.  One that will ultimately test her faith in the hopeless boy she's fallen in love with.   
Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.  

This book was absolutely amazing! It is an emotional roller coaster, and I loved every minute of it. Colleen Hoover's writing had me hooked from the very first sentence. I look forward to reading other books by her in the future.

The main character, Sky, is a 17 year old girl that was adopted at a young age and has been home schooled her whole life. She decides she wants to go to public school for her senior year of high school, so she can experience school in a social setting. Unfortunately, Sky has a scandalous reputation that is all based on rumors spread by bitter boys. Sky is a strong character, though, so she can handle it. But then she meets Holder and her life changes forever.

The character development was amazing. The plot was powerful and emotional. The twists and turns were amazing (and heart wrenching at times). I cannot say enough good things about this book. I definitely did not want it to end.

I'm keeping this review short because I do not want to spoil it for anyone!

Rating: 5/5

Swords are for fighting!
