I loved Hopeless a lot! Colleen Hoover did amazing with that one and did great with this one! I am grateful she allowed us to be able to see from his POV; Dean is so amazing. I also love the detail Colleen provides in her books and this one doesn’t fail. Obviously, you should read Hopeless first, then this one. Following Hopeless, I read several books before I got to this one, which I prefer to do with any series so I don’t go through them as fast which allows me to enjoy the storylines even longer. Definitely recommend!
