Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless #1
"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."

Well, that was one roller coaster of a read. Damn.

I don't even really know where to begin. At first, I thought "Oh another one of these books where the unfeeling girl falls for a guy that makes her feel happy and stuff and it will all be puppies and rainbows."

But it totally wasn't. I mean damn. The angst was at just the right level where it wasn't melodramatic, but enough to give you feels. This book was pretty intense.

Sky wasn't just some unfeeling girl who needed the right boy to make her feel again, no she had some pretty dark stuff hidden in her subconscious. And Holder, he had his demons too. And they weren't petty either.

I don't want to talk about the plot too much because it's better to go into this book not knowing anything, even though for me some of it was a little predictable, and I mean that in a good way. Sometimes a predictable plot is a good thing because that means the story is following a story arch that makes sense.

I really loved this book for what it was. I just wish the second book was more story and not the same story told from a different POV. But I am sure that story is equally good, I just want more new story.
