Book Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover writes a free novella about the search for happily ever after.

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 has 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. But Daniel soon realizes that fairytales don’t exist, and unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!! October 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't stop smiling!! Finding Cinderella was a beautifully written, deeply heart warming novella that made me laugh, cry, and fall in love. In less than 100 pages, it made me feel more than I have in many entire books. Daniel and Six captured my heart and I hope that one day we get more of their story because I'm not ready to let go yet!

I was originally going to talk about the plot here but honestly, I think it'll be more fun to just discover it for yourselves. Suffice it to say that I absolutely adored every word of story - it was fun, quirky and unique.

In case you don't remember, Daniel and Six were Holder and Sky's best friends from Hopeless and Losing Hope and while this novella reads as a standalone, it would have greater meaning if you read both those books first. Also, fans of Holder and Sky will be happy to know that they have several scenes in this and it was a real treat to see them from the outside through someone else's eyes.

The character dynamics are just gold, the writing is witty and, true to Colleen Hoover's style, you are made to care deeply about every part of these characters' lives. I have quotes highlighted on each page and while the majority of the story kept me laughing out loud, swooning and chuckling to myself, there were also strong emotional reveals that had me in tears and brought a really wonderful depth to it all.

It was short enough to read in one sitting but long enough to never feel rushed and give you that feeling of reading a `complete' story. I finished it with a huge smile on my face and the happiest feeling in my heart.

Truly, the perfect novella ♥

5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Six" Stars for this precious noevella!! October 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was just so damn sweet! It's rare that I read a secondary cast story that my main objective isn't just wanting more details from the original h&H. Yet, with this one I loved Daniel & Six so much that I wasn't scanning every line looking for more about Sky & Holder. (though that was such a treat as well). I just can't say enough things about this entire series. I do t think I've ever loved a cast of characters as much as I do Sky, Dean, Les, Six, Breckin & Daniel. They will remain in my heart forever!! Thank you Co Ho!! You are a storytelling GOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet ~ Funny ~ Romance October 14, 2013
By Sue B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Colleen Hoover is an amazing storyteller. Just the right amount of humor and romance thrown in with enough teenage angst to take us all back to the day when we were in high school and felt like everything we did was SO big.
I was laughing at the quick wit and funnier than hell dialogue all the way until the end of Chapter 6 and then oh my lord, the waterworks started out of my eyeballs. Finding Cinderella was a bit of a cautionary tale for teens about what could happen but it also shows a side of them that many parents don't want to see or know about. I loved the natural, honest feel of the dialogue between the characters as well as with their parents...yes, I am one of those open, liberal moms who would talk to her teens about sex in a very straighforward manner so it was believeable to me.
A sweet story about some established characters from previous books (read them if you haven't already!) with a satisfying although too quick ending.
Thank you so much for this lovely gift Colleen! Your writing has always entertained me and I must say I was not disappointed with this awesome freebie!!!

"I've never believed in anything like I believe in the possibility of the two of us."

Oh my God, can this woman write a bad book just for kicks? No, this is not just a novella, it is not just a little add-on story to an already stellar series, and this is definitely not a re-hash of anything we've already seen in Hopeless or Losing Hope - this is the story that fills all the little gaps we never even knew needed filling and it is the story that makes us fall in love with the two secondary characters as much as we loved Holder and Sky. It is also a testament to the fact that Colleen Hoover doesn't need 400 pages to make you feel with every crevice of your heart and that when it comes to telling a story through witty but emotionally-charged dialogues or creating loveable, engaging characters, she is unrivalled. I knew this story would be great but I never even imagined a novella could be this spectacular.

"I don't even know your phone number," I say.
"I don't even know your birthday," she says.
"You're the worst girlfriend I've ever had."

We met Daniel and Six in previous instalments of the series as Holder and Sky's best friends, two outspoken, sarcastic, but fiercely loyal individuals who supported their best friends through thick and thin, and now we get to see them in the limelight. By knowing all the other characters and the main storyline in such detail, no time is wasted on introductions or setups of scenes - we get to immediately zoom into their story and enjoy the ride.

"How do you make love to someone you aren't in love with?"
I lean forward until my mouth is next to her ear. "We pretend.

More About the Author

Colleen Hoover's love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled "Mystery Bob" and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, "Slammed." She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT's bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT's bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term "author" still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn't work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
Colleen's newest novel, UGLY LOVE, releases August 5th, 2014. She is currently working on a new novel, CONFESS, which she is writing as fast as she can before she wakes up from this crazy dream.

You can follow Colleen on Instagram and Twitter @colleenhoover. You can also find her on her blog at where she holds a daily book-a-day giveaway, or on her very active Facebook page at where she loves to give away more free stuff when her husband isn't looking.

Colleen also wants the world to know that writing short biographies in third person is incredibly awkward.
