Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, # 2.5 ) by Colleen Hoover│Review



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 of 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 pretend to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two lovers 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.

♥My Review♥

Being a HUGE fan of Colleen Hoover and her Hopeless series, I only had one reservation when it came to this novella, and that's the fact that it was just that, a novella. How can this novella sum up Daniel and Six's story? How can a reader be satisfied with only 105 pages? 

Colleen Hoover has a way of writing these beautiful stories and capturing all the characters emotions in her writing. I promise you, when you read one of Colleen Hoover's books, you will feel every emotion that her characters feel. It's truly inspiring to know that Mrs. Hoover can not only write an emotional pact book, but deliver a story that will leave her readers satisfied.

Now, Daniel was by far my favorite character in the Hopeless series, which we see a lot of him in Losing Hope. He has this sense of humor and wit that makes me giggle like a school girl. The banter between Daniel and Holder was hysterical in Losing Hope and I am so happy it's still there in Finding Cinderella.

Now, at the end of Losing Hope I believe, we get a glimpse into Finding Cinderella when we discover that Six was most likely Cinderella from Daniel's story that he told Holder and Breckin.

In this book, we get to see the moment when Daniel met his Cinderella and the sweet moment that they shared for one hour, in the janitors closet. It was perfect...that's all I can sum it up into words.

This story will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. You will laugh, be giddy with the cheesy lines (which you will not mind) and than you will cry...because like the Synopsis says, Finding Cinderella doesn't guarantee their happily ever after.

I gave this ♥♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads and would definitely recommend it.
