Faultless. Losing Hope, read after Hopeless, is perfection. I've read (or tried to read) other alternate point-of-view (POV) books, including one by Colleen Hoover, but until Losing Hope, I've not been able to understand their purpose. Being immersed in Holder's POV is so necessary to Sky's story in Hopeless, they should be sold together and read as one. It's been several months since I read and fell in love with Hopeless, so I did go back into it for refreshers while getting into Losing Hope. Because of how I've read both of these books (months between readings) I feel like I can fully appreciate the depth of this book. However, they could absolutely be read back-to-back as a series. Holder's story is just as much as, if not more so, than Sky's. Holder has so much dedication, love, compassion, protectiveness, guilt, and life to tell about, that I can't possibly recommend Losing Hope more or less than I recommend Hopeless. [July 2013]

Sometimes in life, in order to move forward you must face the past…
#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover held readers spellbound with her novel Hopeless, the story of what happened when a troubled girl named Sky encountered a long-lost childhood friend, Dean Holder. With Holder’s help, Sky uncovered shocking family secrets and came to terms with memories and emotions that had left deep scars.

Hopeless was Sky’s story. Now, in Losing Hope, we finally learn the truth about Dean Holder.

Haunted by the little girl he couldn’t save from imminent danger, Holder’s life has been overshadowed by feelings of guilt and remorse. He has never stopped searching for her, believing that finding her would bring him the peace he needs to move on. However, Holder could not have anticipated that he would be faced with even greater pain the moment they reconnect.

In Losing Hope, Holder reveals the way in which the events of Sky’s youth affected him and his family, leading him to seek his own redemption in the act of saving her. But it is only in loving Sky that he can finally begin to heal himself.
