Hopeless--Book Review

Ms. Hoover, I don't know how you do it.  I fall completely (ridiculously) head over heels in love with your books.  With your characters.  With you!  Slammed was great.  Point of Retreat was great.  Hopeless was amazing!

This book was a little different from the first two in that it dealt with a much more mature subject matter.  It dealt with ugly, painful stuff.  With heartbreaking, heart shredding, hopeless junk.  But it was real.  It was heartbreaking, heart shredding, hopeless reality.  Somehow in that mess, Colleen Hoover sucked me in and showed that their is still Hope.  No matter what.

This story is about a girl meeting a guy who actually makes her feel something.  Those emotions are thrilling, yet scary.  She discovers there are secrets that he's been keeping.  She discovers that there are secrets that she's been keeping from herself.  It's about how they deal...with the secrets and with each other.

I won't tell much about the book...but I will say that if you read this, be prepared to invest every ounce of your emotions into these characters.  Like Sky, I don't cry.  I hate to cry--it makes me feel weak and stupid.  But I will admit that at certain parts of the book, I felt like crying with them and for them.  (I didn't cry, though.  If my husband hadn't been in the room with me while I was reading, I might have let go and let a couple tears fall! lol)  Everything about these characters is so intense, so passionate, so emotionally charged, so REAL!

Another fantastic book by Colleen Hoover! 

*just a note--There is some "risque" content in this book.  A little more than I usually read.  There were just a couple of parts that I felt a little uncomfortable reading but it didn't take away from the book at all.  I'm just a little bit conservative!
