If I am more alive because love burns and chars me, as a fire, given wood or wind, feels new elation, it's that he who lays me low is my salvation, and invigorates the more, the more he scars me."
Ash Jensen, a squeaky-clean sophomore at the University of Tennessee, has a trail of baggage a mile long―she buried her fiancé only a year and a half ago. She swore she'd never love again but when she finds herself interned to a yummy Canadian conservation officer that promise is tested big-time. Kade Gyllenhahl sports wild tattoos, a rebellious attitude and a fohawk to die for. He's definitely the wrong man for her and she knows it.
Kade doesn't have time for a girl like her. She's a pretentious, unreadable princess who lives her life by her parents' rules. Kade knows nothing about her past and he'd prefer to keep it that way. Besides, he'll lose his job if he sleeps with Ash. Now if only he could get his mind off her.
When the two of them end up alone and isolated on a routine field trip in the woods, things get a little complicated...
One man afraid of commitment.
One woman afraid to love again.
One life-changing journey.
"Love makes the impossible Possible."
Hopeless for you is the story of love between two broken people--Kade, who on the outside looks every bit the player and the bad guy, and Ash, who has that sad, sad look in her eyes that caught Kade's attention at first sight.
At first, they tried to avoid their intense attraction to each other until something happened that changed their lives for good. And, they also got to know more about each other and about who they really are. Their scars and the pains of their past come to the surface and it's up to them to decide whether to get stuck in the past or give love another chance.
I like how simple and easy to read this book is. Like a diamond in the rough, there are some stuff that has to be polished but otherwise, it's a good book with a lovely story and definitely very sexy scenes!
Another good thing I like about this book is the fact that there are some really funny, adorkable scenes! Such as Ash's worries about being unshaved (lol, sorry, spoiler), and all that stuff and I guess, that's what makes this book so realistic and nice to spend time on. There's also the fact that even the supporting characters like Gina and Blaine are given their turn in the spotlight--this makes the book more engaging and not boring.
And, the ending. Oh my god. I love how realistic that it and how it coincided with the story. Awesome, awesome ending.
So, yes, if you're into romance and books like this are your guilty pleasure, then by all means, read this one! You won't regret it.
