Book Review: Hopeless For You

Hopeless For You by Hayden Hill: Ash Jensen, a squeaky-clean sophomore at the University of Tennessee, has a trail of baggage a mile long―she buried her fiancĂ© 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.
Two lives.
Two hearts.
One life-changing journey.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review**

Hopeless for You is the sweet survival story of Kade and Ash. I enjoyed reading this and found the plot uniquely entertaining. The writing is simplistic and flows easily. It's an easy book to sit down and have read in a few hours. Kade and Ash are both scarred from previous, ill-fated relationships and could not be any more different from one another. However, instant attraction ensues and the two are paired together for the conservatory their working for in Canada. I did not feel a real connection to these characters. I wish there would have more dialogue between the two. And definitely more flirting and banter. It was like they went from zero to sixty in an hour. They are young and the "love at first sight" thing Kade has goin on, I found odd for some reason, like it completely went against his personality. However, I did like the theme of survival weaved throughout the book. Kade and Ash both are surviving both figuratively and literally. And the setting of their story is quite unique as well. When finally start opening up to one another and their vulnerability shows, the story picked up more for me. The secondary characters prove to be really intriguing as well. I woud like to know more about Blaine and Gina. Overall, Hopeless for Love is an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to anybody who's a fan a milder New Adult story.
