Would you rather know a truth that makes you feel hopeless, or keep believing the lies?

Beloved and bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with the spellbinding story of two young people with devastating pasts who embark on a passionate, intriguing journey to discover the lessons of life, love, trust—and above all, the healing power that only truth can bring.

Sky, a senior in high school, meets Dean Holder, a guy with a promiscuous reputation that rivals her own. From their very first encounter, he terrifies and captivates her. Something about him sparks memories of her deeply troubled past, a time she’s tried so hard to bury. Though Sky is determined to stay far away from him, his unwavering pursuit and enigmatic smile break down her defenses and the intensity of the bond between them grows. But the mysterious Holder has been keeping secrets of his own, and once they are revealed, Sky is changed forever and her ability to trust may be a casualty of the truth.

Only by courageously facing the stark revelations can Sky and Holder hope to heal their emotional scars and find a way to live and love without boundaries. Hopeless is a novel that will leave you breathless, entranced, and remembering your own first love.

  • I’m speechless

    I’ve read several of Colleen’s most popular books because the love stories grasp at my heart strings so hard and I can FEEL what it’s like again to get butterflies and have crushes and to be kissed for the first time, the ache in my heart and all the nerves. She does such a great job of conveying what the character is going through. Most of the time, it’s just drama and heartache and rooting for the couple to get back together. But Hopeless had so many plot twists that were more of adult story lines than would be for teen or pre teen books. So many connections that all made sense in the end but I didn’t see coming. I read it in two days. Amazing. I’m so glad this is a series so I can stick with the characters.

    I’m just now getting into books and I could not put this down. This is such a sweet and wholesome love with a dark twist. Easy to connect with the characters and feel their emotions. I was so hoping the ending would play how I thought!
