Product Description

For the last year and a half, you could sum up my life in one word… disastrous.
One simple phone call was all it took
to change my life forever.
If I could go back and do it again, what would I change?
Everything.

What should have been one of the best days of my life turned into the absolute worst.
Cast in a shadow that turns my days dark, and my nights even darker.
Before I can put the pain of the past behind me, I need to fix what’s broken.

The first step is believing it can be done, the second is forgiveness.
But forgiveness doesn’t come easy, least of all for who is to blame.

For every choice, there are consequences.
Some good.
Some bad.
Some simply unforgivable.

One poor choice made me the target of a sociopath.
And once again, I’m reminded just how cruel life can be.
But….
I’ve come to learn after every storm, the sun shines again
And, someone taught me life is only worth living if you smile.
It took almost losing him for me to understand.
What would I change?
Everything, but him!

Losing Hope is a phenomenal story of one girl's survival and strength, proving that love sometimes comes at the most unexpected of times. A powerful, emotional roller coaster of a read that is both gripping and heart wrenching, but also heartwarming. An inspirational story that will stay with you long after you read it.

Losing Hope is a gripping New Adult Contemporary Romance.

Firstly, I need to mention how beautiful the cover for Losing Hope is; apt and befitting. A cover must catch the reader's eye, entice them to look further and this works wonderfully. Heidi Lis is not an author I have read before, I had a quick look on site and realised she had other works already published. I’m happy to say after reading this book I would likely read more from her. Fluent writing style, conveying emotions well. Solid plot line, immersive and engaging; I didn’t skip anything and enjoyed, for the most part, what I read.

Chapter one is a doozy; throws you right in at the deep end. By the time the reader gets to chapter three well…. you’ll be swimming in tissues. This author has no hesitation pulling her punches right at the beginning. That’s what we want right? Something that drags us in, something that pulls those emotional heartstrings until they unravel. The first few chapters are intensely raw and in places starkly brutal, scenes that don’t leave the imagination so easily. However, after these first few chapters, I felt the emotive facet fell away rather quickly and the story never quite regained that same clout. The author takes her time teasing out details, which does work often, but unfortunately the hinting became annoying in some places and I really didn’t see the need for some of it. Hence a frustrated reader and not in a ‘can’t wait for the reveal’ kind of way either.

Onto the characters; Heidi wrote some good, well developed ones, for the most part likeable. My opinions shifted a few times the further I read but I think most readers will be the same. Hope was the tragic girl, life had beaten her down more than a few times and we have one very broken girl struggling to adapt to a life that is so far different from what it used to be.

Do you know for how long I was waiting for a new book from this author? Let's just say it looked like years instead of months. If I didn't loved this author I wouldn't have minded but I really, really love her.
Heidi Lis is a sweet sweet woman with a huge heart. Her writing is simple, appealing, intense with a little kinky stuff into the mix. She puts her heart into each book and this one she nailed it.
Losing Hope is a breathtaking book that tells Hope's story.
Hope was a happy girl, with a beautiful life ahead but sometimes life can deceive you.
She had her heart broken due to her cheating an manipulative boyfriend. But also she had lost her mom on a tragic accident and she hates herself for it. Can she overcome this? Can she found happiness again. Gain hope for a better future ? Can she be herself again?
How was I feeling when I finished this book??? I was a mess. I was sad, happy, nervous, anxious all at the same time. I was happy for a few things but sad for others, I really don't know what to say.
The story unfolded in a way that makes sense, the time line is perfect so you need to get ready for this. The way the characters interact with each other is priceless, it's sometimes hilarious but other times sad and intense. Loyalty and friendship are hand in hand and made me realize that true friends are the family we choose.
We are graced with some peculiar hot scenes, of course I needed to tell you this, because I'm a sucker for hot stuff.
I'm still speechless and overwhelmed and I'm still recovering from this bumpy ride.
Heidi Lis you know that I love you with all my heart but I was so mad. Thank you for another amazing book and I can't wait for the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional roller-coaster, but with HOPE anything is possible! 8 April 2017
By Edith Dubielak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Losing Hope by Author Heidi Lis is an inspirational romance. An emotional roller coaster, but at the same time give you HOPE that there is light despite all the darkness. I have read every book Heidi has written so far and like her previous books and like her previous amazing books she did not disappoint me. Losing Hope is my favorite book that I have read this year so far.

We first meet Hope on a day that should be a happy time but soon turns to a day that will haunt her with pain, sorrow, guilt towards her actions, hatred towards someone from her past. Her world became complete darkness.

"Now I’m left to pick up the pieces as my guilt smothers me, casting a shadow that turns my days dark, and my nights even darker." – Hope

Hope is a character I connected with from the very start. Heidi did an amazing job with her description in her writing that I went through boxes and boxes of tissues. The whole time I was reading the book I swear I felt like I jumped into the book and I was in there experiencing everything Hope was going through. Each character is very well developed and likable. I utterly enjoyed the relationship Hope had with her brother Hunter. Me being an only child the whole time I was reading the book I found myself thinking dang it, I wish I had a protective brother or man can I have a brother like that. That's how well developed Heidi's characters are. She makes you want to be in her books. Now let's not forget the two men in this lovely book. One made me want to throw my phone across the room and the other made me cry my eyes out. Ian and Damien the two men who will play a huge role in Hope's life. Ian came into Hope's life during her darkest days. He understood what she was going through because he could relate and Damien the man who could make her insides melt. Make her want to live again, but his past can threaten everything.

There's a lot that happens in this book and so many twists and turns and I love every single one of them. This book will have you at the edge of your seat.I could not put this book down. I read this book the minute I got it and didn't put it down until I finished it. Heidi Lis is my absolute favorite author. Even the Melanie character that you're supposed to hate I ended up feeling sorry for. Heidi is such a great writer that I hope there will be a follow-up book to that character, even though she was the evil of the characters. So in my conclusion, if you are a reader who likes to read a book that will test your emotions, has some suspense, and lots of twists then this is the book for you.

Onto the characters; Heidi wrote some good, well developed ones, for the most part likeable. My opinions shifted a few times the further I read but I think most readers will be the same. Hope was the tragic girl, life had beaten her down more than a few times and we have one very broken girl struggling to adapt to a life that is so far different from what it used to be. Having a good support system in her best friend Ireland, her father and brother, made her life bearable. I guess this is Hope’s struggle to live as normal a life as she possibly can. Her reactions to some things were overbearing and over the top in some aspects, let the solidity of her character down sometimes.

I wasn’t altogether swept away with the plot/subplot of Ian. I’m probably in the minority here so I shall explain. There’s no argument that when they met they were both low and vulnerable and that they absolutely needed each other. It was a turning point for both. Hope always said she felt ‘comfortable’ with Ian. It should have stayed that way. His actions afterwards were a little mean and honestly, should have been the end of whatever they shared. Don’t get me wrong, Ian was a tremendously lovable man battling his own demons, the reader can’t help the affection bestowed on his character. Yet I felt what he and Hope shared was ‘lacking’. After all, if you love someone so much how can you fall head over heels for another?

Damien (and not the ex) was a totally different kettle of fish and in stark contrast to Ian, Hope fell hard for this man. Again, we find out that he too has things from his past he would rather keep there. Unfortunately, it isn’t often his choice to do so as his past rears its ugly, ugly head in the form of Alli. Sparks flew between Damien and Hope from the offset, yet they couldn’t get over that hill. I was disappointed greatly with the turn of events concerning Damien, the outcome left a bad taste in my mouth. I think he was cheated, I think Hope was cheated, and I think Ian was cheated.

The ending felt lukewarm, there was no conviction in the decisions made. It wasn’t a gushing ending for me, again a tad let down. I’d like to see more of the characters in the book, I think you have an excellent base for a story on Hunter and Ireland and definitely Damien. I would go on to read them despite my reservations and observations of Losing Hope. I would have to rate this a 4 star read at a push, some of my comments are personal opinions but I can definitely see the appeal this read will have and how readers will enjoy it.

Kindle Friends Forever reviewer Klaire recommends this read – with plenty tissues.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read! 20 March 2017
By Rebeka Zsurkán - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book*

Wow. This book is beyond amazing. Believe me, when I say it. Just believe me and read this story. You won’t be disappointed.
I’ve read a lot of books about grief and loss but this book is one of the most complete, most amazing books ever.

It’d be so easier to say I’m totally speechless. This story totally took my breath away. It was my first book from Heidi Lis, buti f I knew she writes with such a power, I’d grabbed her other stories way more earlier. Her writing style is hands down amazing. The way she built up the story…well, let me say my jaw hit the floor, not just once. There were times where I was gasping for air, I just didn’t know what will happen with the characters. I was totally under a spell. I practically couldn’t put it down. (And I really did not put it down.)
My heart, that poor thing, was broken into a million pieces. But then came Heidi Lis, and she put the pieces together again. And again.

I’m just gonna leave my mumbling here. I can’t form any coherent thoughts. It was not my last book from this author. And it was not the last time I read THIS story. A must-read, people, the biggest must-read of the year. Mark my words
