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.”
I had been wanting to read something by Colleen Hoover for ages, so when I stumbled upon this Kindle Freebie and saw that I could read it as a standalone, I knew I had to have it.
The plot itself was great. Slightly predictable, but with books like these, I don’t find that to be a bad thing really, because at least you know what you’re going to get out of it. I really loved Daniel. I’m not sure why, but I just completely fell for him.
This was the perfect way for me to delve into the world of Colleen Hoover’s books, and it definitely won’t be long until I pick up another one!
