Holder has a lot to say.

Hey. Holder, here. So, I have this really cool girlfriend who likes to read. You might remember her. Sky? Killer sense of humor?  Incredible mouth?

Well, we’ve been dating for a few months now and, although I don’t really pay attention to her when she reads to me, I still like watching her while she does it. There’s just something about those lips.
Okay, I’m getting sidetracked. Anyway, the first night I ever went to her house she had this book that our friend Breckin gave her. It was called SLAMMED. Heard of it?  Well, this may just be speculation, but I heard somewhere that Colleen wrote SLAMMED from Will’s point of view and has been sitting on that manuscript for a while. Sky is getting really irritated because she really wants to read it. She read a teaser for it here and I swear that’s all she can talk about! If I hear her say one more time how she needs more “Will Cooper,” I’m going to have to send her another ego-deflating text. I know he’s only fictional, but I’m starting to get a little jealous.
So, back to the point again. I was able to find out for Sky when she’ll finally get more “Will Cooper.” Not that I want her to have more Will, but I always tell her I’ll do whatever it takes to make her happy. If she wants to read out loud to me…I’m sure not going to stop her. I just hope it’s a long book so I can watch her lips for hours.
Ugh! There I go again. BACK TO MY POINT!
I heard Colleen was just sitting on this manuscript until…hell…I don’t even know why she wasn’t sending it to her publisher. Maybe it had to do with getting Sky’s story out first in Hopeless. That would make sense, right? It was pretty crazy.
Now this is just hearsay, but I heard Colleen is working with ATRIA BOOKS for the final installment of the SLAMMED SERIES. The third book is still untitled, but people have been referring to it as “Will’s Story” or “This Girl.” Whatever it will be titled, Sky will be happy to know that I found out the e-book will be released this April. She is going to be so damn happy to know that.
At least now she’ll stop whining once she has more Will Cooper and she’ll start reading out loud again while we’re together…in her bed…her head on my chest…book in hand…her lips…Shit! Sorry. I hope Sky never finds out just how much she occupies my thoughts or her ego would grow even bigger, if that’s possible. Hold on while I send her a quick ego-deflating text before she starts to realize how incredible she really is.

Hey, babe.  I’ll be at your house in an hour, so make sure you brush your teeth really well for the next sixty minutes.  Not that I plan to kiss you when I see you because your lips are really unattractive.  It’s all I think about; how unattractive they are.  Seriously unkissable lips.  Not thinking about tasting them at all.  Nope.  

Okay, she should remain grounded for a while with that one. While the news might make Sky happy about Will Cooper, it sort of put me in a funk. Only because I started thinking, “What’s so special about Will Cooper?”

I mean, sure he’s way talented with his poetry and all that, and he seems like a really good guy. But why him? Why not me?
I threw the idea out there for Colleen, because if you think about it, I’ve got a lot to say myself. Y’all already know what I was thinking during the best first kiss in the history of first kisses with this post. But I keep thinking about all the questions that were left lingering in Hopeless. Questions like these:

“What was Holder thinking when he saw Sky in the grocery store?”

“What was he thinking when he saw the bracelet?”

“What did Holder do during the month that he left Sky after the incident in the cafeteria?”

“Why did Holder leave his mother shortly after Les died?”

“Why did he leave Austin on bad terms with his father?”

“What was he like before he met Sky?”

“What prompted him to crawl back through Sky’s window that night after not speaking to her for four weeks?”

“What was going through Holder’s head the moment he found out about what happened to Les?”

Tons of questions, right? I went ahead and answered them all in hopes that Colleen would finally decide to write MY version of the story. If she can write one for Will, she should write one for me, right?


Well, ATRIA BOOKS thought it was a good idea and agreed with me, so now Will isn’t the only one with his own story. I don’t know what I want mine to be called yet but we can get to that later. The good news is, Colleen is releasing HOPELESS from my point of view and the ebook will be available in July. It’s good to know that Sky will have more Will Cooper in just a couple of months and then more of me shortly after that! I’m about to let Sky in on the good news. Knowing her, she’ll probably be more excited about Will’s Story than my story.

Nah. That girl loves me way too much to prefer Will over me. She’s “Team Holder” all the way.

Like, Live, Love

Dean Holder

  13. My brain just nearly exploded from the amount of excitement I’ve just had reading this. Although, I’ve read the excerpt from Will’s side from a previous post quite a while back, I’m very excited to know that it will be out very soon ! It will also be a wonderful birthday present to myself when Holders story is released being that it seems to be planned for July ! This is an absolutely wonderful idea you’ve had Colleen. I’ve always had so many questions after finishing books, but you seem to be the only one that has plans to answer them. I’ve very excited to read them. My calender is marked and I’ll be waiting patiently.

  14. OMG-I can’t tell you how excited I am right now. I’ve been waiting to hear when the third Slammed was coming out and now to find out that there will be another Hopeless, I’m lost for words! I know the 3rd Slammed will be available as an e book in April but I really hope it becomes available in book too to join the first two on my book shelf. I will still be purchasing it via e book regardless. Colleen Hoover-you have become my favorite author and am incredibly excited for these two books. You’re writing is phenominal and am so looking forward to more of it!!!

  15. I can’t wait! I love hopeless! I’m reading it again now. He totaly should have gotten number one book boyfriend! <3

  16. Today’s “Suck” is that I’m up at 6:30am on a Sunday morning. My “Sweet” is that I just read this awesome blog and I AM SO FREAKING excited!!! Colleen Hoover, you have ruined me! Since reading your books, I can’t find another one that makes me hold my breath while I’m reading b/c it’s so good. Keep writing and carry on… see you in Orlando!

  17. Ooh my gosh!!! This makes my whole year!! I’m sooo freaking excited!! I was just telling a friend of mine I needed some more colleen Hoover writing in my life. :) and I JUST finsished rererereading slammed and point of retreat! Perfect timing for this amazing news!!!

  18. The moment I opened my inbox this was my first news, I viewed this after 3 hours it was posted, and what joy! I’ve linked this to my facebook and tweeted it :) I was so giddy! Then at school, yeah, my friends can’t stop my ranting! HAHAHA =))

    DEAN HOLDER, YOU SHALL ANSWER ALL MY INQUIRIES WHEN YOU VANISHED WITHOUT ANY REASONS *well, I do get the reasons, it’s just I wanna pretend that I didn’t know why* :)) I’m excited for the 3rd book (HELLO WILL) And for your very own book :)

    P.S. Stop staring at Sky’s lips and raving it. ;)

  19. Uhh Dean Holder,
    I have a brilliant idea for you! If you really want to make Sky happy, give Collen a writer ninja, who does all of the long parts after the writing bits for her, so that she can get more books out faster. Like now. Because I butterflying cant wait, and if I cant, neither can Sky. I checked.
    Thanks-and best of luck, though I’m certain you dont really need it.
    P.s. if she ever does go team Will, you might try writing her poetry, it seems to work well for him:)

  20. I like live love the story of Lake and Will… as well the story of Sky and Holder.

    ColleHoover is just plan Butterflying awesome she is myvor new favorite writer… hopes of an east coast book signing.

  21. OMG. I love Holder and Will. Each are unique in their own way! I am SO EXCITED for Will and Holder’s POV! When i first read Slammed, I finished it in 2 days and moved right on to Point of No Retreat because I just couldn’t get enough of Will and Lake! and when Hopeless came out! I couldn’t drop that book either! It was such an amazing book, my all time favorite! I recommended it to a couple of my friends and they all enjoyed it too! I butterflying love your books! :) I shared this link on facebook, twitter and by word ! All 3 are must reads!

  22. It took me a good couple minutes to get down here so I could comment!! I am SO excited for this! I typically don’t LOVE it when author’s right the same book from another POV because they never seem as genuine as the first book, like they’re made just for profit, but I honestly love your writing SO much that this will definitely be one of those exceptions for me!! I cannot wait for Holder’s AND Will’s POV!

  23. Will I butterflying like you so damn much! and Holder – I am so so so in LIKE with you,.. more more more,.. those words just arent enough for how much we need to read about you both!

  24. Great news about the continuation of Hopeless and Slammed series I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Holder!! Sky and Dean’s story was amazing the way you wrote it. My favorite book hands down can’t wait to see things from Dean Holder’s POV. There are a few questions that have been left unanswered, but now can be answered.

    The Slammed series is great as well and I enjoyed reading Will’s POV in the Point of Retreat. Can’t wait to see what happens between Will and Lake in this new book??

    You’re a great writer Colleen and thanks for being there for your fans.

  25. ER. MA. GERD. BEST POST EVER. I don’t know how I didn’t see this, since I subscribed to your blog through email, but OH MY GOD! Holder! Will! I am so excited! This comment is hardly coherent. I’m stopping now. I love you Colleen!

  26. OMG.. is this.. i mean are these real?!!! The two of my favorite book boyfriends will finally have their own version of their story… This is the highlight of my day. I feel so happy I can feel the Sky~~ (I’m being ridiculous… I’m kind of shaking from this good news.. freaking good news)

    You are really my favorite author! again CONGRATULATIONS for the success of your books! and again these installments that will come for the next months. This is unbelievable, especially I thought there will be no more Holder.

    again Thank you!

    and Thank you Holder for convincing Ms. Hoover to have another one~~ I’m so Excited!

  27. Holder is so adorable! OMG I can’t wait for his POV and Will’s story too!!! Now I’m too excited to sleep :) Colleen you are such an amazing writer!

  28. If I had to describe you, Colleen Hoover, in one word…it would be INSPIRATIONAL.

    I started writing my first book last year (wanted to make space in my head, turned out I ended up filling it with more ideas than I started with), and after reading “Hopeless” closely followed by “Slammed” and “Point of Retreat,” I am in awe. AWE!

    Hopeless has everything an engaging novel needs. It has a strong if imperfect main character to draw in the reader, a charismatic best friend to break the tension…and of course it has Holder.

    To me, a really good book is one where I AM the main character. I feel her heartbreak, her happiness and everything in between. Never have I felt so close to a fictional book character before. It was truly something.

    While reading “Hopeless” for the first time (late at night while I was supposed to be studying for exams) I literally found myself smiling because I couldn’t believe I was reading something so….I can’t even find the word. “WOW” would probably sum it up.

    “I need the lamp. And the ashtray. And the remote control. And the paddleball game. And you, Colleen Hoover. But that’s all I need.”

  29. Thanks Holder for the awesome news…
    It will be absolutely fantastic to have your POV…
    And I can’t wait to have more of Layken & Will.. yay :)

  30. Colleen Hoover!!! I love you!!! Live you!! Love you!! Live you!! Love you!! Love you!! Wait, it was supposed to be live…ah whatever….I LIVE LOVE YOU!!!! :)

    And Dean….*dreamy sigh* don’t you worry….we’re all “Team Holder” all the way…..LOVE You!! Live you!! (multiplied by infinity) :D

    And Will…in case you’re reading this too…let me tell you we’re “Team Will” all the way…What? A girl can’t cheer for two teams at the same time? Well, this girl definitely does! Can never discriminate between you and Holder. :P LOVE you, Will!!! Butterflying LOVE You!! :D

    Can’t wait for both of your POVs!!!! *freaking out* Dang! How am I supposed to wait for so many months now? *deep breath* Patience, patience….it’s only 2 months…4 months….Ahhhhhhhgggggghhhh…….

    A huge fan, A.C. , cooler, D.C., and everything else that basically says “I’m so glad that I read those books!! Love them, live them!” (ok, enough babbling…going a little overboard here, aren’t I?) :P


  31. LoveLove Hopeless! I have recommanded this book to all my girlfriends. The only thing now is that we all want to find a Holder but were all married lol

  32. OMGosh Colleen! I am so freaking excited and can’t wait! You have ruined me with your books! I can’t even pick up another book to read since Hopeless because I just know that nothing will be as good as the books you’ve written! I have to share this good news with mom now!

  33. This was such amazing news! I can’t wait for the third Slammed book to be released, I loved the first two and I know I’m going to love this one as well! I’m so EXCITED that Holder is getting his own book too! Thank you Colleen for giving us such amazing books already, and now you’re adding these two which makes it even better! Awesome giveaway, would love to have Slammed, Point of Retreat and Hopeless!

  34. Oh I can’t wait such great news Holder and Will hold a special little place in my heart. Your books just delight and inspire me even gave my 14 year old daughter a jar full of paper cranes with messages from me in them for Christmas which seemed to really touch her so I owe you a big THANKYOU !!

  35. Omg! I loved the Slammed Series and cannot wait until the next book is published. I am having withdrawals. I am in love with Hopeless too and cannot wait for more Holder and Sky!

  36. I am so excited, I am looking forward for both stories, because who can choose between Holder and Will? Actually it is impossible

  37. I love that we will get Holder’s point of view. Your writing is so descriptive. The reader can truly become a part of the characters’ lives. I can’t wait to read the next book. I too had questions about Holder that I would love to get answered.

  38. I love your work, Colleen! I am also looking forward to you publishing both of your new books.
    The way you structure your stories are amazing! The little twists that just pop right in there without us seeing it.

    Keep writing and I will keep buying :)

  39. Oh how wonderful, the boy telling how he feels. We need more like that. It might encourage more boys to read … reading is sexy :)

  40. So exciting about the new upcoming sequels! I loved all the books and am very excited to read more about the characters I’ve grown to love! I hope in the future to see more from the girls POV’s too!

I have read all of the books so far including Hopeless and can’t wait until April for a new book to emerge myself in. I have even turned family and friends into C.H groupies! Keep up the great work Colleen and NEVER stop writing!

  57. I seriously CAN NOT WAIT! I read Hopeless, Slammed and Point of retreat all in 4 days. Might even read them again. Getting to read Holders AND WIlls POV is going to be awesome and intense! I might have to read them again!

  61. April and July can’t get here fast enough! Thank you so much for giving us what we want! Could you just include a life size blow up doll of the guys?!?! You truly are the best! We love Colleen, keep up the good work!

  62. Geez Holder and Colleen you two are butterflyingly phenomenal. I live you both and cannot wait to read Untitled Hopeless from your POV, Holder!! <3

  63. You’ve made my year!!! I CAN NOT wait to get my hands on both books!!!! I’m so glad I found you!! Team Holder. Who am I kidding? I’m Team Will too.

  64. I am so excited! I’ve hated reading my entire life (for real, for school I would read cliff notes instead of reading an actual book). That all changed when my husband handed me his Kindle and said “here, read this. I bet you will like it”. Little did he know that I would LUURRVV it (yes, lurv, not love) That one moment has changed how I feel about books. Probably for forever. I have read all three (Slammed, Point of Retreat and Hopeless). Possibly more than once but I won’t admit to that. Thank you for changing my view on books, reading and giving me the chance to share something with my husband (who loves to read).

  65. I read all three books in a few days! Great books. Granted the house is a mess, the laundry is piling up, and I’m not sure my kids ate, but I really enjoyed your books! Looking forward to the next two!

  66. Thank you so much for writing, I really enjoy reading your stories and sharing them with my co-workers! I can’t wait for more Will and Holder! Thanks again keep writing…

  67. OMG!!! More Holder & more Will, who more can a girl ask for????? <3 You have just made my day/weekend/month and I can not wait!!!! You are truly amazing Colleen!!! :) :) I love all your books!

  68. OH MY GOODNESS!!! That was a whole lot of Excellent news! Thanks Dean for the informative blog. I am super stocked to read more about Will and Lake…and Holder and Sky!….super super stocked! =)

  69. One question You (Holder) forgot to mention is how you felt the night you took off after Sky asked you to “take it away from him” in the least romantic of circumstances. I think you side of the story is just as unique as hers and should be told, yours is a story that can be significant, fun, and entertaining without revisiting “Hopeless” in too much detail. Maybe the title would simply be “Hope”…

  70. Apparently Ms Hoover you have made an awful LOT of people happy ( especially me!!) with these new books. See how easy it is for you to give joy & excitement to people !!! THANK YOU…. can’t wait til July, as I just finished reading HOPELESS for the 2nd time & plan on buying it for gifts when it is published in paperback soon!! Slammed is on my “To Read” list, just before Will’s book comes out! You are so kind to do this for your readers who wnat MORE!!

  71. I can’t believe you’re going to write a book for Holden!! I loved him in Hopeless and I can’t wait to see what’s been going on in his head during everything. Thanks so much!!!

  72. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!! So excited!!!!!! I’m at work so I have to let out my excitement through this comment. AHHHHHHHHH!!! I think this has made my day and it’s Friday so really excited!!! I think this makes for some great news for a great weekend!

  73. Whoohooo!!!!!! Can not wait…love your books. I am in my 40s and a mom of a “new adult”….great reads for all of us!!!!!

  74. Waaa!This would be a great year!! I can’t wait for those books coming out! Can they out be sooner?haha!
    I just have to say your post is so witty! I haven’t read Hopeless yet but I’d love to meet Holder. Hopefully soon!

    Thanks so much Colleen!Your books are amazing and so do you!
    <3 <3 <3 from the Philippines.. :)))

  75. Oh.My.Gosh!!! You’re killing me!! OMG! My heart will burst! and am shaking right now. Speechless. I can’t wait! (marked my calendar)
    Holder is pretty funny talking about Will like that. Gosh, I can’t pick between them! </3
    My roommate is torturing me to pick only one as my boyfriend. What am I supposed to do? They finally know about each other.. I love them both <333
    Thanks for making my day Colleen :)

  76. It’s a great birthday gift! Well actually it’s my son’s birthday in April but who’s to say I can’t use his birthday as an excuse to celebrate this gift! Thank you Colleen!!!

  77. Oh my gosh I cannot wait for the third book! And i loved hopeless! This blog is great :) you are an amazing author, one of the reasons I started reading again.

  78. I absolutely cannot wait ! I’ve been having Hopeless withdrawals ever since I finished reading it ! I just wanted more~ Thanks for the news Holder, reading from your perspective will be so interesting! You’ve been the highlight of my day :)

    (P.S Colleen, you rock! Never stop writing!)

  79. OMG i’m sooo excited! Can’t wait to read both Stories :D <3

    BTW: is there any chance that the paperbacks of Hopeless are available at Amazon EU?

  80. Happy April wedding present to me!! :) Just release it before the 27th because I think my fiance would get pretty mad if I was reading your book for half of our wedding day ;-)

  81. I think somebody has to send Holder an ego-deflating text. He seriously needs to put a shirt on who wants to see those abs while running! And just like Sky WE ALL need more Will Cooper 8D

  82. OMG! I am seriously dancing with excitement and joy(my two boys are staring at me with their curious eyes :-) ) I cant wait to read these two books. Love your work Colleen.

  83. Oh my God! Hopeless from Dean Holder’s POV! Bring it on! Wow! I am so super duper excited for this! Go Team Holder! Oh, and Sky loves Will too, eh? Well, no girl can resist Will! ♥ Holder and Will forever! :D :* Just this one post from Holder has me smiling… Imagine what a whole book will do? :P

  84. Omg! I’m soo excited and can’t wait for Holder’s POV book and of course I have been waiting for Will’s story!!! Yay!! Thanks Colleen…keep them amazing books coming =]

  85. This is probably the best news ever! I am so excited for both of these! April cannot come soon enough!!!! so many good books to read this spring! Thank you Colleen for your wonderful stories!

  86. Best News Ever! I’m Team Willand Team Holder, because there both amazing, I cant wait. So many great books coming this spring from you, Sylvia Day and Jamie Mcguire!

  87. I’m doing cartwheels right now!!!!! My favorite characters are coming soon!!! I can’t freaking wait. Best news ever!!!!!! Thanks Colleen & Holder of course. Would love for hopeless to be turned into a movie but I guess that’s just wishful thinking.

  88. Uuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmm….HOLY SHIT!!!! That’s the best news ever…can’t wait for Will and I surely wasn’t expecting Holder’s POV!!!!


    Hopeless and Slammed are some of my favorite books, they were amazing stories and getting the POV of both Will and Holder is going to be even better!


  90. Holder cracks me up. yeah, i get sidetracked too. If Will and Holder will stand in front of me, i’ll be in seriosly dead. I would not know who to choose.

    Haha! Im so excited :)

  91. I can’t wait! I’m so happy that I found Colleen, Sky, Holder, Layken, Will, Caulder, Kel and the list can go on. Great writting and I can’t wait to go back to my Hopeless POR Slammed reading.

  92. OMG SO HAPPY! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY EMOTIONS! Was so sad when you stopped selling Hopeless cause I wanted it in my hands and turning pages! But happy it will be on bookshelves in stores soon! Thank you, you are sooo amazing! (:

  93. Omg omg omg, i soooo can’t wait!!!!! Super excited!!! Aboslutly like, love, live all your book!!! Holder ,Will, Holder love love love!!!!!!!! :-)

  100. Colleen – you have just MADE my summer! I can’t wait for Will’s story! Ever since she drove up to her house in that Uhaul…I just can’t wait. Hopeless was amazing from Sky’s perspective but I really can’t wait to see what was going through Dean’s head when he KNEW that he had just seen Hope in the store!

  101. And she’s back woohoo! Thanks for making my day:) I can’t wait until Apri! Not only am I giving birth to my son but I also get a fix of your great work (yes I am addicted to ur books) ?! Boy do I feel blessed :)

  120. So I’ve gotta say that you are one of my FAVORITE authors! Slammed changed me & opened me up to a world of poetry I never knew existed. I absolutely love Lake & Will’ s story & have been dying for the third book. I love that it’s going to be from his pov. I haven’t read hopeless just yet but I’m sure I will love it just as much. I would love to get signed copies of these books.

  121. HOLY CRAP!!!! I cannot wait…i cannot stand it! Jumping up and down squeeling like a giddy girl. So totally TEAM HOLDER!!! Congrats Colleen!!

  122. I don’t want to wish my life away but is it July yet? I say July cause that way both will be out! I am such a happy girl right now. I was doing my happy dance when I got all excited and think I peed a little!! Lol. Wish I would have been into reading when I was having all my Crohn’s related health issues. I had so much time, I could have read a lot of books then. Great books would have helped me escape all my pain!!

  123. Omg I am soo excited! I can hardly wait! You have no idea Colleen how happy you have made me. I look forward to your books after a very exhausting day of work.

  124. This news made my day! I loved, loved, loved these books! I recommend them to everyone!!!! April can not come soon enough! Keep them coming Colleen!

  125. This is absolutely, positively AMAZING news!!! I know Will’s story will be awesome and I can’t wait for it, but a Holder POV has made my day, month, and even year in relation to books! I LOVE Holder. July needs to hurry up. :)

  126. I just came home from a miserable day, there’s a blizzard outside, and I’m sick – and this post just totally turned it all around for me!! Yay!!! :)

  127. OH MY GOSH! I LOVE HOPELESS!! Its hard to read any book after reading Hopeless. Every book I pick up I catch myself comparing it to Hopeless and let me tell you…..nothing cares! I cant wait to read Holders story!

  128. So excited for both books! I can’t wait for more of Will and Holder. They are two of my favorite male characters. I’ll definitely be picking them up, can’t wait!

  129. Love that you’re writing the books from the other points of view! Looking forward to hearing what the guys were thinking:)

  130. Oh my goodness!!! Yayayaya i am so freaking excited! Both of these guys defintely needed a book from their pov! Woohoo waayyy to go Colleen!

  131. Best news ever!!! :) I’ve had a really rough work week which has put my attitude in the gutter, but this news completely turned my mood around! Hello, silver lining!! I am beyond thrilled for both books. Thank you for being amazing and publishing incredible stories!

  132. Huh. Holder is so CHATTY!. Hahaha hard to find a guy like who’s getting jealous for a fictional character, Will Cooper. Anyway, I’m so excited for your 2 books this coming April and July Colleen. Now gonna have to mark my calendar :D. Oh btw, can I use your “Write Poorly” poem for my final exam in my English class? Not that I have no originality, but it’s all I can think about and not that I’m a psycho that I’m thinking about you all day….. But kinda.. , maybe a little. Love lots Colleen!


  134. Not excited at all and I also didn’t vote for Holder and Sky as my favorite couple. j/k. I did vote for them and their first kiss that wasn’t a kiss. Can’t wait for Will and Holder’s stories. I’ve talked about these books to everyone I know. You rock Colleen!!

  135. so EXCITED to have Holder’s point of view. Hopeless stuck with me after I read it….looking forward to revisiting old friends :)

  136. I just threw all my books aside and was glued to the fact two of my favorite men of all time are getting there side of the story!! Woo! Holder, Colleen Hoover is the shit!

  137. Ermgerdness!!! Lol I ammm sooo happy right you are so butterflying awesome! Can’t hardly wait for both books. Live you Colleen. :)

  138. I was holding my breath reading this realizing what it meant. Yea! I’ve told everyone who will listen about Hopeless and now I’ll be spreading the word about the new book from Holder’s POV. Thank you, thank you

  139. *jumping around like a school girl* I am so excited over this…cause seriously we’ve all been asking ourselves these questions, inquiring minds wanna kniwell damn we soon will!! *high fives Colleen* ;). Holden out for Holder ;)

  140. Hopeless was amazing and left me speechless!!!! I can only imagine what Colleen will have in store with Holders side of the story. The Slammed series is just as amazing, didn’t leave me speachless like hopeless but I sure couldn’t put my Kindle down, my kids were probably ready to turn me in for neglect(ha,ha joking) I can’t wait!!!!!! :)

  141. BEST NEWS EVER!!!! I read the news at work and I may have done a little jig (which happend to be in front of my patients, who I then raved to them about these books and how she had to read them)!!! I am sooo excited for both of these books! Slammed and Point of retreat are the BEST books I have ever read! Not gonna lie, I have read them about 5x’s each (since January, like I said they were my favorite)!!! My coworker and I were talking the other day about Hopeless and how we wanted to know more…and now we will!!! Soooo excited!! I can’t wait for the next books!! They will be amazing!!! Congratulations to Colleen!! Like I said, BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!!!!!

  142. THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! I can’t wait for April and July!! Your books are my favorite of all time!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent with all of us!!!

  143. Awesome! This is great :D so not only do we get Will’s story but Holder’s as well!? I think I could die, but maybe after July when I’ve read both books haha.

  144. OMG!!!!!!! Slammed and point of retreat are a few of my favorites. Two of only a few I ever cried out loud while reading! I have read hopeless twice and so can not wait these two books! You are an awesome writer and it makes me love reading with books like these!

  145. WOW! Holder sure does have a lot to say indeed. Colleen, I just wanted to let you know that you have inspired me in so many ways than one. Your writing abilities are absolutely AMAZING! The way you captured me every step of the way while reading Hopeless, Slammed and Point of Retreat! I wonder what it would be like if Dean & Will some how met later down the road, in another book perhaps.
    Thank you for writing these books and I look forward to reading more in the future.
    Forever a fan, Holly Angell

  146. I may or may not have squealed…and gasped…and started smiling like a crazy person! And by “may or may not I have” I mean I did all three.. Bsgafrvqofbfjaygbsus omgomgomgomg yay! These books are the only ones I devour in one sitting and now there’ll be another one (well, 2, but I knew about Will and now I get HOLDER!). Ahhhhhh so much excitment.. THANKYOU COLLEEN!

  147. OMG that’s awesome news!!!!! I’m missing those guys! plus I would love to add more autographed copies to my lonely Slammed and Point of Retreat collection! Colleem this is so Butterflying Fantastic!!!! You rock and the publishers know this now!

  148. I’m having an eeeekkkk moment :) I’m so excited for Will’s story. Slammed and Point of Retreat were amazing and Hopeless blew me away. Can’t wait for Holder’s POV! Ahhhhhh I’m so excited!!!!

  149. Dear Holder,
    I’m so glad you will be receiving air-time as I think you’re pretty darn cute and wonderful. Don’t get too excited here though, because I have to tell you, that I love Will Cooper too. (I whispered that last part – don’t get too angry!) Go give that gorgeous Sky lots of smoochie kisses, (if you can bare her breath).
    I’ll make sure I drum up some readers to take the time to read your story….I’m sure I’ll find loads of Team Holder fans ok??!! Your friend, MM xx

  150. Good news to round out the week. – I have been putting off reading Point of Retreat until I think I can handle it. Once we have a date for the release of Wills’ story, I can read them back to back…

  151. Crazy Kermit flailing!! Just posted to FB and Twitter via our review site Bookcrack.com. Can’t wait to add the news to the piece I’m writing about you and your books for heroes and heartbreakers! Congrats!

  152. I have been waiting forever for Will’s POV and now more Holder!!!!! I think I might just die and go to heaven!!!!!! Thank you miss Colleen!!!!

  153. Oh my gosh, I can’t wait for these books! Before today I checked your blog everyday with the hope that I missed a blog post from you giving information about the books!!! This news just made my week! You are an amazing & creative author, by far my favorite. I would love to have signed copies of your books, especially since books in general mean so much to me, it’s an added bonus when they are signed and from your favorite author! Thank you Holder for the great news!

  154. A signed book from you would be heaven. I don’t know how you do it but your books are magic. Every one of them I can relate to in someway, which is so rare. I appreciate you and your talent so much. Please don’t ever stop.

  155. Oh I am so excited for more Will and Holder! I love the Slammed Series and Hopeless! I sure would love to win a signed copy!!!!!

  156. Holy cow… I just woke up and read that. It made my day already! Oh no, Will and Holder can never be compared. I can’t wait for Will’s story and Holder’s too!

  157. Wow… how did I not get the Slammed reference in Hopeless?! Now I’ll have to go back and reread the book. SO excited for this!! Eeee, I looovee Holder!

    So many books to look forward to now!
    P.S. – can’t wait until you come to Seattle in Sept!!

  158. I am so excited! I’ll catch up on my sleep now, so that I’m not so sleep deprived. I know I won’t be able to put the books down so sleep will be at a minimum!

  159. OMFG!!! i never check FB to be honest but today I did and I can´t believe what I am reading. I´m so excited for both news. I have been calling Slammed third book “This Girl” all this time btw.. I can´t believe is coming out this April!!
    And is awesome that we are going to know what was going on with in Holder´s head all that time too and in this JULY, you are killing me Collen, in a good way.
    Thank you for the great news Holder.

    p.s. I can´t choose a team when It comes to these guys.

  160. I am so excited! I just ordered a Kindle Paperwhite since I had been Kindlenapping my friend’s old Kindle and reading all her stuff like Slammed, Point of Retreat and Hopeless!

  161. i cant wait!! P.S. if this book ever turns into a movie, Holder HAS to be played by Ryan Gosling! He would make the perrfect Holder!

  162. Seriously though, the whole time I was reading I kept telling myself, ” she’ll do, she’s gonna do it!!!!”. Thank you for coming through for me!!! I knew you’d do it! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

  163. I recently read Hopeless and flew through it — I would love to read Slammed & Point of Retreat! I loved the intensity of Hopeless!! Thanks Colleen!

  164. Huge fan of Colleen Hoover, and am anxiously waiting for Slammed from Will’s POV! And am so excited to hear the news of Hopeless from Holden’s POV.

  165. Well hot damn! Thanks Colleen for the great news…….in Holders POV can you go a little farther & tell us how Six reacts to all this news when she gets back?! You are the bomb.com!

  166. That’s great news!! I’ve only read Hopeless, but I’m hooked on Hoover:) I’m going to start on the others this weekend and can’t wait!

  167. I just finished Hopeless, which I read at the suggestion of friends, and loved it! I’m so excited to read all the rest of your books! And I love that now I’ll be able to live Holder even more, reading his side of the story!

  168. I CAN NOT Wait to hear what you have to say Holder! Thank you for convincing Colleen to write it! Can you also convince her to give me the signed books since you have such a wonderful power of persuasion? Thanks in advance. :D

  169. Shut the front door!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew about the book from Will’s POV and I’m so freaking excited to read that one. But now we get Holder’s POV too?????!!!! OMG, Colleen, you are spectacular!!!!! I can’t wait.

  170. Holder books are like children you don’t love one more than another you just love the differently. So we are all excited about Will’s story coming out in April but will be equally as excited when your story come out. Love you…Thanks for sharing the great news.

  171. OMG. So excited. Will and Holder in the same year? That is just amazing. Both Slammed and Hopeless are two of my favorite books ever. Hopeless resonated the most because I could relate to it due to personal reasons. I love that you create such strong characters that deal with what is given them and make a beautiful story out of it. Again, SO excited for both books! <3

  172. Hooray! I can’t wait. I had so many questions About holder and sky….i heart me some will…l thank you for such amazing books:)

  173. Oh my goodness!!! This just made my day! YAY!! :D Can’t wait to read both Will and Holder’s POV. You are the best, Colleen.

  174. Ohh wow..Team Holder or Team will..I just love them both to bits and I can’t wait to read both point of views..but Holder is just mm so sexy..<3 Cannot wait to read your POV holder and congrats colleen <3

  175. This is the best news ever!!!!!! All of Holder’s questions have been sitting in my mind since I finished the book. Thanks Colleen!!!!! Can’t wait to read the, both and meet you in June at Book Bash!

  176. Holder you have made my day! I’ll admit I’m a Will Cooper fan, but I’m also a Dean Holder fan. Sky’s story touched me in a way that no others have. The connection you have with Sky/Hope is a love that will last a life time. May I be lucky enough to find a Holder or a Will Cooper of my own.

  177. Can’t wait to read Holder’s point of view! I haven’t read the Slammed series yet because Hopeless was so intense for me. Looking forward to all of your books though while I wait for April & July!

  178. Can’t wait for your two new books……..
    Wonderful news you are going to write from Holder POV…….
    Thank you………
    Hurry up April and July….
