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 wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this book. I haven’t read a young adult book in a few months and every time I do it hasn’t piqued my interest. This his me grinning like the Cheshire Cat! I am totally loving it. It’s fun, witty, sexy as hell, raw, and earth shatteringly heartbreaking. I’ve been ruined for all future books. I thought this was going to be another book about a girl that immediately falls for the bad boy, blah blah, but that wasn’t the case. If I could take Holder out of the pages and keep him forever I would. Hopeless was nothing short of perfection. You got your basic teenage issues, then there is that too hot to handle angst. Why have I waited so long to read a book by this author? I thought the story was going one way but I was completely blindsided. I’m just dumfounded right now….can’t even give this book the review it deserves. The words wont come out!
