Review- Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Goodreads Summary:

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.


REVIEW:

Colleen Hoover's Slammed (my review) left me awestruck and Point Of Retreat (my review) left me overawed, which means the same thing. Seriously, both the books in the Slammed series left me smiling and I was insanely eager to read Hopeless. While Slammed and Point Of Retreat were expectedly incredible, Hopeless was unexpectedly and indescribably amazing. 
Being a Colleen Hoover book, I knew I'd love 
Hopeless, but the truth is that, when I started reading it, I just could not relate to the protagonist and it left me feeling disappointed. But, being a huge Colleen Hoover fan, I did not give up. I feel awful and embarrassed to admit that there came a point where I thought I'd just DNF the book. I hate to admit that I even thought how all the readers sat through it. God, what was I thinking? I loved this book. I loved it so damn much. 
Just when I thought I'd had enough, 
Colleen Hoover threw something so incredibly smashing and glittering that I found myself digging deep into the story. There have been so many books that have left me speechless and yet, I go on and on admiring and praising them. 
But admiring and praising Hopeless? Where do I even start? How do I even start? 
This time, I really am speechless. I have decided not to say anything about the story because it is complicated, it really is very complicated and the beauty of it is hard to describe. I will, instead, just say that if you haven't read 
Hopeless yet, I really have no clue what you are waiting for. Hopeless truly is a beautiful, strong, powerful, crazy, emotional and mind-bending read. 
Colleen Hoover! I cannot even describe how much I love her writing. It is so beautiful. It's so true and raw and uncut and clean. It is so simple and sweet and sparkling.  
Hopeless is such an incredibly, almost insanely and thoroughly beautiful, amazing and wonderful story. The characters are beautiful and broken and so is the story. It is not a tender or light-hearted read.  It is heart-breaking, gut-wrenching, mood-swinging and absolutely crackling.
