Hopeless gives the reader the best first kiss they have ever read...and leaves you wanting more.


Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 17+
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING NOVEL"Hopeless blew me away.  I was so wrapped up in this story, I felt as if I was Sky.  She's so real. And Holder...dear God, fan me please.  This one will rock your world.  Trust me."  ~Abbi Glines, bestselling author.

"HOPELESS has set the bar for the best first kiss in the history of first kisses. And the best leading man.  And the best plot twists. And the best love-making.  And the best last 'chapter.'  I guess it's safe to say this book has set the bar for every book I pick up from here on out." ~Lynn's Reads

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies...

That's what 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 one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past 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.

Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual content, harsh language and heavy subject matter involving abuse and other mature issues.

The story of Sky and Holder is tragic, heart breaking, and highly emotional. It is also one of the best love stories I have ever read.
