Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover A short review for a short story.

Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5)

Published: October 14th, 2013
Publisher: Atria Books
Pages: 105
Copy: Free download from Amazon
Summary: Goodreads

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 picked up Finding Cinderella when I was offered the chance to review a different book by Colleen Hoover.   I was in the mood for something quick, and knowing my penchant for fairy tale retellings I thought I'd give this a try.  Well first of all it isn't a retelling, but it was kind of cute. 

As you can expect from the title, it's going to have a happy ending, and it did, so there weren't many surprises.  I was able to anticipate most of what was going to happen in the story, and I have to admit that most of it was highly unlikely.  But you know what?  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I certainly wouldn't mind meeting Daniel!  A quick, enjoyable read for fans of contemporary romance.
