I don’t really give a shit what kind of mood you’re in, because I’m in a pretty shitty mood myself, Holder. I'm not going to rehash the whole story because chances are if you're reading this, then you've already read Hopeless and know Holder's and Sky's story. The reason I didn't rate this as high as Hopeless is actually more about my emotions and less about the writing.

But then she runs into Dean Holder - messy brown hair, smouldering blue eyes, and a temper straight out of Fight Club, someone who Sky is determined to avoid. All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past.I was more excited about getting to read something else written by Colleen Hoover and less excited about what it actually was. The book starts right before Les, Holder's twin sister, makes a decision that will shatter Holder and his family's life, again. It’s causing my hands to shake and my heart to pound and my chest to ache because all I want to do is wrap my arms around her and hold her and thank God we finally found each other again. I'll admit there was some potential with that considering Holder reflects on his sister's death and has to deal with the rumors about his person and his own family issues, but I'll admit in the whole time that I followed Holder in this, it was like reading someone's account at arms length and the major measures that shaped him were only with respect to Les's death and Hope's disappearance.

You would think if you gave one perspective character a story of their own and then attempt to tell the same story from a different character's perspective in that same environment that it would be easier, because you have more wiggle room to develop them in a separate account, but it presents a similar problem in that you have to challenge yourself not to repeat information there, and carry the story based on that person's account and their respective stakes and experiences. That was a MAJOR hole in the story for events, because how would Hope not remember her aunt begging the other family not to tell anyone? It's a story about losing hope, being hopeless, but being able to find hope once again in the arms of love.

This author sure knows how to lighten your heart one minute and crush it the next with a simple turn of the page. I wasn't a huge fan of the scene in the parking lot in the first book, but in this one, it seemed even creepier. It's painful to read all that guilt and pain from Holder's POV, but it's also so powerful how little by little he starts to heal, the incredible way he expresses his feelings by writing to his sister. Probably because it wasn't as though I was just re-reading them, I was actually re-experiencing them through Holder's eyes. In Hopeless Sky told her side of the story, but this time, in Losing Hope we get Holder's sode of the emotional journey.

She volunteered to show him her ID, to a complete stranger, then he went and googled the hell out of her. At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. Holder and Sky's story is filled with heartbreaking moments and reading their story from Holder's POV didn't make it any less emotional. The book explains all of his feelings towards Hope, and the guilt that crushed him as a little boy, for letting his best friend be taken, for not protecting her.Even though there are scenes that were the same in this book and the outcome is the same there are additions to even the ending that complete the overall picture. Revelations in the form of dreams/flashbacks pave the way for the brutality of the ultimate exposé as the plot peaks.
