Review: Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Finding Cinderella is a short novella featuring Daniel and Six from Hoover's Hopeless series, and unsurprisingly, it's a romance. As always with Hoover's novels, the fun is seeing how the couple get together, despite the odds working against them. 

It's been a long time since I read Hopeless and I have yet to read it's sequel Losing Hope, so most of the minor characters were a little bit fuzzy for me. Fortunately, this one stands up pretty well on its own merit, detailing the unlikely romance between Daniel and Six. The novella begins with Daniel making out (and eventually sleeping with,) a girl that he meets ever day in a janitor's cupboard at their high school. He never sees her face or learns her name, but he hopes that one day he will. One year later, he's almost given up hope of finding this girl, when Six (the best friend of his best mate's girlfriend,) returns from a student exchange from Italy. The pair are instantly smitten in a way that Daniel hasn't felt about anyone since his experiences in the cupboard and well ... I think we can all guess what happens next, but the journey is interesting enough, as is a rather heart wrenching plot twist. 

This one is a short and enjoyable romantic read. Even better, it's available to download for free from the Amazon Kindle Store.
