Hopeless (Hopeless #1) 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.

I’ve seen this book every once in awhile when I search for new books to read on goodreads. For some reason I’ve never picked it up. Finally, yesterday I decided enough was enough and I was going to find out what this book is about. So without reading the blurb I got it and started reading. 
We first meet Sky and Six. Which by the way, they both have badass names! I remember Jack, Sky’s moms boyfriend, said Six was an odd name or something along those lines and I couldn’t disagree more! I loved it! I also loved the name Sky it sounds so pretty!
Sky reminded me a lot of, well, me. I could see a lot of me in her and I think that’s why I had a strong connection with her. 
When we meet Holder we off the bat know something’s array. You can just feel the secrets he’s keeping. I wanted to know immediately what was going on in his head. I wanted to unlock all his secrets. That’s what kept me turning the pages, I wanted to know what was going to happen. I definitely did not predict the actual outcome of things. It was surreal to read Sky’s life do a complete 180. Her life will never be how it was before. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY YOU WON’T GUESS WHAT HAPPENS! (I love great surprises like this!)
I usually hate little prologues that have a scene of some event that happens later in the book because it usually spoils the book but not this one. Sky doesn’t cry. She’s a strong girl and hasn’t cried since she was 5. When I learned that after reading the prologue I was consumed to find out what the hell happened to make Sky sob hysterically. 
Holder and Sky together they’re odd. Not odd, like “how are they even together?” but odd in just what they do and say. It was an enjoyable odd however! For example: he would send her insults via text as a joke. Little things like that were odd but funny. 
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a cute love story with a twist.
Love,
Liv

I was super curious to see if one of my new favorite YA author could switch over and write supernatural. Sometimes, it can be awkward to read when supernatural isn’t the author’s forte but not with this novel! Kirsty Moseley knows how to draw me in and make me feel so connected with not only the characters but the story line as well! I love supernatural books so it was treat for me to read not only a young love story that I love that incorporated supernatural elements in it.

What made the story seem “real” even though it contains supernatural elements is the relationship between Brook and Trey. It was hard to read such an abusive relationship. This story could have been good if there wasn’t even Shifters involved. The story line without them would’ve still been a good story because it was very plausible which I appreciate. A lot of supernatural books (even the good ones) wouldn’t be good if you took out the supernatural elements in them but this book wasn’t the case. The supernatural element only added to the excitement of this book!

I liked the whole plot of the story. My only complaint is the complaint I have had reading all of Moseley’s books, it’s that I WANT MORE! I wish there were more books! It’s hard to imagine what would come next since the books don’t have a cliffhanger whatsoever but I can’t help but crave more from these stories! I feel like I get super attached to not only the story but the characters and each book of Moseley’s I read it’s getting harder to say goodbye to the characters!

If you love Kirsty Moseley’s books, I’m almost 100% sure you’ll love this book too. The supernatural elements only add to the greatness of this book! If you are not familiar with her work I still recommend this novel! It’s a standalone so there isn’t any cliffhangers whatsoever in this novel. It’s a great love story about Shifters, romance, and abuse. Go pick up your copy today!

First can I start off saying that the summary is perfect. It doesn’t spoil anything! Too many summaries nowadays spoil so much within the book but this one doesn’t. Yay good work!
Hmmm, Jake and Liam. YUMMM! I wish I could see these two men in person. I want to see all their sexiness up close! Like I want to see two guys that every girl is literally tripping over their feet to just say hi to them. I want to see that sexiness in person! I’d honestly find it so amusing to go to school with them. When they would have their school scenes and the girls would nonstop throw themselves at them shamelessly, ugh I wish I was there. That’d be so funny to watch! It’d be like a little show you would get to watch everyday. Especially when Liam would get really uncomfortable. 
I loved Amber! I felt like I could really connect with her. Maybe not in the abusive parent aspects but with her personality. I could honestly say that in real life me and Amber would be best friends. She was so great and such a strong woman! She was funny, nice, compassionate and my favorite characteristic… not whiny! I feel like so many woman characters I read nowadays are whiny which is super annoying to read. 
Also I’d like to add that Liam is officially one of my favorite book boyfriends in the history of ever. He was so adorable! I loved his playful flirtatious banter along with his serious, caring banter. 
This was a fun book to read and I absolutely adored it. I stayed up, honest to god, until 5 am reading this book! I didn’t want to put it down! I wanted to keep reading about their story! Their love is the love that I envy and want so badly in my life! If I could find someone that fit me so perfectly like they did each other I would die from happiness.
I also really liked the story line, it was a sweet love story that had some good bumps in the plot to keep it interesting and kept the reader involved and intrigued. I wish that there was a second book of Jake and his story of him finding love. That’d be a great story since he’s such a player and only sees women as objects I think it’d be amusing to watch him fall helplessly in love! I definitely recommend this book!
