Review- Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Goodreads Summary:

This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone 

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

Hopeless Series by Colleen Hoover:


Colleen Hoover is an amazing author and an even amazing person. It was super sweet of the author to write a novella for the funny, silly and adorable guy we met in Losing Hope, Daniel, who is Dean Holder's best friend. But what was even more super sweet of Colleen was to have this novella available as a free download for readers. Now which lover of the written world doesn't love free books? 
So as soon as Colleen announced that Finding Cinderella was up for download, I went and got my copy, 1) because I promised I'd read anything Colleen Hoover writes, 2) because I love love love the Hopeless series, 3) because Daniel sounded awesome and 4) because the novella was free. 
Well, so far Colleen Hoover has written some absolutely sparkling books with lots of laughter and tears in them. There has always been that serious issue behind each of her characters and stories. But Finding Cinderella is the author's cutest, most funniest and insanely adorable stories ever. 
God. Daniel is awesome. And so is his girl, Six, who happens to be Sky's best friend. They both made for, as Dean says, a crazy but totally right couple. It was their story entirely from the time they first interact with one another till they finally get together and fall crazily in love. I actually laughed out loud so many times while reading what goes on in Daniel's head. 
There's really not much that can be said about a novella but boy, this was so cute that cuteness might be an understatement for it now. I loved it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you haven't already, make sure you get your copy of Finding Cinderella and read it soon.
