#1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us 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. 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 reconnected.

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.

    Loved the different perspective on a great first book
  • It was okay

    By Andrea Higgins
    Hopeless was amazing! Losing hope was very repetitive. Found myself struggling through most of it.
  • Heartbreaking Fantastic

    This book was one of the most heart felt books. Hoover is really a fantastic writer. I love that I got to Dean’s perspective.

    I love seeing it from Holders point of view. A lot of the same stuff from Hopeless, but still a great read!!!

    Very good

    Really should have read the reviews before purchasing this book. I feel like I skimmed through 90% of this book because if you’ve read “Hopeless” you read this book… minus a few inner thoughts from Holder and the very LAST two chapters the books are the SAME! This whole book could’ve been made into a bonus chapter at the end “Hopeless”
  • Dean

    By Nem3223
    I fell in love with Sky (Hope) and Holder’s relationship. Holder aka Dean is truly a man at such a young age. Gives me hope (literally and figuratively) that there is a “Dean Holder” out there. Hopeless romantic and lover of PDA!

    I was somewhat disappointed in this book after loving the others that I’ve read. Many parts of Losing Hope were a repeat of Hopeless. I feel that Hopeless could’ve just been continued to include the final two chapters of Losing Hope. I’m not sure if I’ll read the next two in this series.
  • Repetitive

    Didn’t find this sequel very necessarily. It’s basically the story of Hopeless but from a different person point of view. Hopeless was way better!
