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 was so happy to see a novella featuring Daniel and Six. These are possibly two of the most awesome best friend characters ever. They are sarcastic, witty, and just outright fun.
I don’t want to ruin anything for y’all, but this ride between the two of them is awesome! We get to know Daniel a little better, and Six is completely different than how she acted in Hopeless. There are reasons behind that, and oh my goodness, it hit pretty close to home. Not completely, but close. Daniel and Six have a lot to learn from each other.
Finding Cinderella is fast paced, and makes you want more of their story. This is a super quick review because I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but I do hope you read it. Also, if you have issues with teens and sex, you’ve been warned it’s brought up in this novella.
One more thing, you can check Finding Cinderella out for free on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
