Colleen Hoover Books
Who is Colleen Hoover?
I'm a huge fan of Colleen Hoover. She has a unique way putting everything into place. The plot is unpredictable. The characters are mysterious and one of a kind. The interaction between the characters is spontaneous and not over the top. Furthermore, every book will leave you with a smile on your face.
Hopeless is the first book I have read written by this author. I really thought I got the story going on in my mind. Surprisingly, it drifted into something unexpected and unusual. After that book, I become a fan. I read Slammed afterwards and the succeeding books that were published. So far, her books have not failed to meet my expectations.

She has published and released 5 books and a novella. The Slammed series is her first books that have become bestsellers. The series has three books namely Slammed, Point of Retreat, and This Girl. The Hopeless series comprise two books (Hopeless and Losing Hope) and a novella (Finding Cinderella). Maybe Someday is her new addition.
You will never put this book down until you're finished. The story of Sky and Holder is full of surprises.
This is a compelling story of Sky and Holder. They are young people with troubled pasts who try to live in the here and now. Sky grew up from an over protective and conservative mother. She has been homeschooled all her life. And she is prohibited from using a cellphone and the Internet. But things began to change when she opted to attend school in her senior year in high school.
She meets Holder, a guy who has a reputation that is the exact opposite of her own. Their first encounter has left her wondering and questioning his motivations. But with the constant run ins, she cannot fail to recognize the spark of memories that come rushing - memories that she has buried for so long.
Holder is persistent in keeping up close with Sky. Even if she repeatedly brushes him off, he continuously keeps himself at arms length. But when Holder's secrets are revealed, Sky is forever changed and her ability to trust falters. Together they embark on an emotional and riveting journey as they discover lessons of life, love, trust, and the healing power that truth brings.
