5 Nuts for Hopeless

GoodReads 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.

WOW! Not to sound crass or make fun, because no pun intended but Hoover sucked me in from the start. Sky and Holder are beautiful together and their journey of how they met, again, and watching their relation grow kept me glued to it. I couldn't put this book down and when I finally had to, I wanted to pick it right back up.

The story itself, even though it might happen once every million years, was connectable. And for Holder to carry the burden of what happened to his childhood friend was heartbreaking. You were right there with him when he explains how he realized who Sky really was and how he struggled with the information.

Well done!

But be warned, there are some tough situations in this book and if you are sensitive to sexual abuse, this book isn't for you. But trust, the scenes are not graphic, just moving in their realization.

If you're a fan, here's an extra scene from Hopeless from Holder's POV. Loosing Hope is out July 2013.
