Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Author: Colleen Hoover
Publication Date: 12/19/2012
Audience: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Mystery
Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky 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 just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
Picture and Summary from Goodreads
*sigh* Now that was an amazingly great read.  Full of laugh out loud moments paired with swoon worthy romance and a serious issue at heart, Hopeless has easily made my favorites list. 
Right off the bat I instantly connected with Skye.  The interactions between her and her two best friends really brought out the fun in the book. The interactions between Skye and Holder gave me hot flashes. 

The romance was heart stopping, the friendship heartwarming, and the mystery surrounding Sky's past suspense worthy.
Hopeless was a delicious read that kept me enthralled, there was no putting the book down.  If everything she writes is this good, I have a feeling I will be going on a Colleen Hoover book spree.

"Let me inform you of something," he says in a low voice. "The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you've never felt anything when someone's kissed you, then no one's ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you."
