The "Best First Kiss" (Hopeless #1.5) by Colleen Hoover

There aren't a lot to write about this one except it's a joy to read. Only thing is - you MUST read Hopeless BEFORE or it will spoiler the HELL out of you. But you SHOULD know that this scene is a part of "Losing Hope" - the next book in the series which is Holder's perspective of "Hopeless". I actually didn't know that.. So don't be surprised when you encounter this scene about half way through "Losing Hope".

This is the same beautiful scene in which Holder doesn't want to give in to their first kiss but does kiss her, so beautifully and passionately, while not REALLY kissing her. It also gives away what Holder was thinking and where he is with Sky.

Third time a charm - BEAUTIFUL

This one was posted in her blog right HERE!

Hopeless is the second series by Colleen Hoover. While I didn't really appreciate the first series - Slammed (mostly for the main female character and for the series to be Young Adult) I did really enjoy this one!

I'm filing this one under New Adult mostly for what Sky and Holder are going through though since they are in high school you might put them under the Young Adult category. I do think that their maturity and what they are going through is enough to categorize this one under the NA genre.

Actually it's not a series in the regular sense of the word. The first book being the "main event" written from Sky's POV, the second being the first story told from Holder's POV with a little bit more than was told in the first one and the last novella was a free bonus from the author of Sky's best friend, Six, finding her HEA.

Sky has been home schooled all her life, but on her senior year of high school she convinces her step mother to allow her to go to school. High School isn't that bad, what is confusing is the cute guy she keeps running into - Holder. He seems to be 5 different people, his moods keeps changing and she can't keep up with it. What's his deal anyway? It's SO NOT what you think. 

It's quite a difficult story with a lot of things for both Sky and Holder to find out, about themselves and about each other.

Note - "The Best First Kiss" is a free scene from the first book in Holder's POV. This scene is included in the second installment in the series told from Holder's POV.
