5 in the SKY Stars
I must warn you, there will be A LOT of hand holding pictures, I just COULD.NOT.HELP.MYSELF!!!
What can I say… I absolutely loved Hopeless and is probably if not my favorite read of all time.
Damn Colleen Hoover, YOU.CAN.WRITE
Losing Hope is Hopeless from Holder’s POV. Remember the part where Sky and Holder didn’t talk to each other for one month, oh.my.gah…. it was killing me… I wanted to know what Holder was doing, what he was up to, what he was thinking, who he was seeing and YES, Yes, and YES I got it! Thank you!!!
I am mad at you Holder… But no matter how mad I’ve been, I never for one second stopped wanting you here with me
If you kind of liked Holder from Hopeless then you basically want to pin him to the bed and face rape him when you finish Losing Hope
I LOVED HOLDER from Hopeless, but by GOD having Holder’s POV is like drinking a glass of wine… no matter how much you consume… you just want more and get drunk on it
And… so did Jacqueline (just saying)
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
Do not even get me started on the first non-kiss. Oh lord, who knew dry humping and NOT kissing was so freaking hot! I just LOVE IT! I’ll say it again, I LOVE Colleen Hoover’s writing. I want to go into my kitchen right now and force husband to make me dinner, just so I can make-out with him or have him grope me.
What made Hopeless such a great read was all the dynamics that went on, like Sky unraveling her past and Holder making Sky whole again. Now, what makes Losing Hope such a great read was seeing the inner struggles Holder was dealing with and how he overcame them. I didn’t think he was so abrasive in Hopeless, but damn, when he fights, it’s SEXY!
Oh and the things that come out of his mouth…
You can hold my hand, you can run your fingers through my hair, you can straddle me while I feed you spaghetti, but you are not getting kissed tonight.
F&ck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers
Sheesh… FAINT right here
One last thing, I think Hopeless/Losing Hope had one of the most moving, intense and yes BEST sex scene. It wasn’t just steamy, it was just such a vital and pivotal point in the read and I am so glad it was written the way it was written. To this day, I compare that scene to other scenes in my current reads and there is just no comparison.
This isn’t me saying yes, Holder. This is me saying yes
You were always there, you know. Even when I couldn’t remember… you were always there
Despite the first tiny part was a little slow for me, the rest definitely made up for it. If you had any questions about Les and Holder’s relationship, Losing Hope answers that.
