Book Review: Finding Cinderella (Hopeless #2.5 or #3) by Colleen Hoover

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.

I thought I couldn't love Colleen Hoover anymore after reading Hopeless, but I was wrong. It's completely possible. The best part, it's a freaking novella. It's one hundred thirty pages. One hundred thirty pages of pure perfection. I've reread this book many times as I do with most of Colleen's books and I have never fallen out of love with Daniel. He's one of my favorite book boyfriends, as are many of Colleen Hoover's male protagonists.

We met Six in Hopeless, as Sky's bestie. We didn't get the chance to really get to know her because she took off to Italy for a foreign exchange program. That being said, I already knew that she was hilarious, a good friend and was going to make for a great main character in Finding Cinderella. WE meet Daniel in Losing Hope. He is Holder's best friend and sidekick. It had been mentioned that he had had a scandalous encounter in the janitors closet with a stranger during a night of video games at Breckin's. This is of course the setup for Finding Cinderella. I really enjoyed this book every single time I've read it and wouldn't mind a sequel for Daniel and Six. It would be hilarious and heartwarming and everything that Finding Cinderella was. Perfection.
