**5 Heartbreaking Stars**



Blurb: 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'm not a sucker for happily ever afters, but if these two characters don't get theirs I might climb inside this e-reader and lock them both inside that damn garage forever.” 

A quote from Sky (Lead Female) - She said it & I was thinking it!

Hopeless is a beautiful book, it has twists, turns, flips and jumps - it is incredible.

Dean Holder has secrets - it started with an incident that, to some, may seem insignificant but to him changed the course of his entire life.

“My eyes trail from his hand to the tattoo written in small script across his forearm. Hopeless” 

Sky is just a normal teenage girl, she has a best friend, a mother with whom she has a great relationship, she is academically clever and seems to have no worries. Until she meets Dean Holder...

This book made me cry - I mean big, fat, wet, ugly tears:
“Your heart is so beautiful and someday someone is going to love that heart like it deserves to be loved.” 
This book made me laugh out loud - gut clutching laughter:

“Holder: "I thought Mormon's weren't allowed to have caffeine?"
Breckin: "I decided to break that rule the morning I woke up gay.”
I went through every emotion in the book, emotions I thought only real life could evoke - Read this, it is simply stunning.

  1. I absolutely loved this book as well! I hadn't read any of Colleen's other books (though I have Slammed and Point of Retreat and This Girl), but this one was SO good. Great review! Glad to hear that you loved this one as well :D
