My Tease for this week comes from:

Losing Hope

(Hopeless #2)

Colleen Hoover

First - The Blurb:

In the follow-up to Colleen Hoover’s #1 New York Times bestseller Hopeless, the charming and irresistible Dean Holder tells the passionate story that has melted thousands of hearts.

In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared, and no memory forgotten, but Holder’s past remained a mystery.

Still haunted by the little girl he let walk away, Holder has spent his entire life searching for her in an attempt to finally rid himself of the crushing guilt he has felt for years. But he could not have anticipated that the moment they reconnect, even greater remorse would overwhelm him…

Sometimes in life, if we wish to move forward, we must first dig deep into our past and make amends. In Losing Hope, bestselling author Colleen Hoover reveals what was going on inside Holder’s head during all those hopeless moments—and whether he can gain the peace he desperately needs.

Second - The Tease:

I dip my head and press my mouth to hers. We both inhale a deep breath the second our lips meet. She pulls me to her, welcoming me back into her life. Our mouths are pressed desperately together but our lips are completely still and we're both attempting to inhale another breath. I pull back slightly because the feel of her beneath me and having her mouth willingly pressed to mine is completely overwhelming me. In all my eighteen years, nothing has ever felt more perfect.

Third - My Thoughts.

After reading Hopeless a short while back, I couldn't wait to read Losing Hope and seeing the story from Holder's side. It is without a doubt, a truly emotional story. Learning of the way Holder blamed himself for the tragedies he had experienced in life, and how he dealt with overcoming that blame was quite heart wrenching. However, knowing how it all ends, did help ease the ache a little.

I've read quite a few of Colleen Hoover's books now, and each time she blows me away with her beautiful writing. She knows exactly how to draw you in and keep you there.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
