Summary

A chance encounter in the dark leads 18-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 last only one hour, and it will be only make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them seemed perfect only because they were pretending it was. Moments like that happen only in fairy tales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in love-at-first-sight is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Unfortunately for Daniel, finding true love doesn’t guarantee a happily ever after - it only further threatens it.

Will an unbearable secret from the past jeopardize Daniel and Six’s only chance at saving each other?

Hoover's Best Book

Without a doubt this is the very best book Colleen Hoover has written. It's sweet, funny and delightfully unique. The story of Daniel and Six is a bit of a cautionary story but they manage to work through their problems without the excessive angst that sometimes overpowers some of Hoovers other books. It's a short book but a real delight.

Good pre sequel of Hopeless

What about Jason Carpenter’s performance did you like?

awesome. I like his voice and his performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and it's short and easy to listen

Any additional comments?

I loved this book because I got to see Daniel's POV and how he fell for Six.When I listened to Hopeless and Losing Hope I didn't care much of Daniel's character but after I listed to this one that changed. He's rather smart and funny and he found his better half in "Cinderella".
I liked the storyline though in some parts I could guess what was about to happen however it's a good book. I recommend it.

Not What I Thought

This story had me at hello, despite that it was about high school kids, something I’m not the least bit interested in reading. Also despite the fact that Jason carpenter hardly even tried to give any character a different voice., which I’m totally not used to. It was weird how much I enjoyed the whole book, including how much I liked all the characters. Daniel and Six weren’t your typical 18 year olds, nor were Holder and Sky. They all had smarts and depth far beyond their years. I’m not even sure what exactly it was that drew me in so completely but I totally enjoyed the ride. Kinda wish the there was a second epilogue, you know, 10 years later…

MAN. CoHo...💗

I swear, Colleen Hoover, you, my dear, are a friggin genius. I've been reading my whole life, and I've never found such a connection to characters in a book. I've read nearly all CoHo books, but I believe I've found my favorite. It *was* Hopeless, by the way. Also by the way, If you haven't read Hopeless, DON'T read this first. You will appreciate the brilliance of this so much more if you read Hopeless, Finding Hope, and possibly All Your Perfects first. Holder was my fave character out of every CoHo I have read ... no longer. Daniel takes the cake, and Six is hands-down my favorite female lead character of all.of. them. These characters, these personalities, these PEOPLE will make you smile, cry, laugh, and ache right in your heart. Well done. Bravo. Never stop doing what you do CoHo. Never.

I wish it was longer…

I adored the story and the characters. I just really wish it was longer with more context and detail but… clearly the book was written the way it was for a reason. Still loved by and love CoHo

Daniel & Six

*****Spoiler Review*****

Audible review. Single POV (Daniel's). Book 3 of 3 in the Hopeless series. YA. The narrator does a great job. Unnecessary intro and finalé music. While I enjoyed the story it is completely unrealistic to believe that Daniel got over Six having his baby and giving him up for adoption while she was in Italy. Then when Daniel & Six found out that Sky had been kidnapped they didn't really question it, come on. Trigger warnings: unwed pregnancy; adoption without notifying the father; abduction.

The story begins 2 months after Dean's twin sister died. Daniel Wesley (aka kid) is Dean's best friend, he hides & naps in the janitor's closet everyday when he wasn't assigned a fifth period class. While in the closet a girl comes in crying and makes out with him, he nicknames her Cinderella because he doesn't know who she is (they never turned the light on) and they were in a janitor's closet. Then the story jumps ahead 1 year later with Daniel seeing Tessa Maynard (aka Val), breaking up with her, going to see Sky & Dean at Sky's house and meeting Seven Marie Jacobs (aka Cinderella/Six) who has just returned from her time away in a foreign exchange student program. While Six was away she had a baby boy, gave him up for adoption and never told the father because she didn't know who he was because they never turned the light on/exchanged names. When they realize who each other is Daniel is elated and Six is devastated, Daniel goes after Six, they eventually meet in the park across the street from Daniel's home where Six tells him about their son. Daniel is now devastated but quickly gets over it because he knows she didn't have a way of finding out who he was. After they've made up Six finds someone's search history on her computer looking up the story of the missing girl that she realizes is Sky. Daniel and Six go to Sky's house to inform her of what they found, Sky confirms it and then overwhelmed by the secrets Daniel blurts that Six had their baby and gave it up while she was away. They're all going to the same college with Six & Sky and Dean & Daniel being roommates. JP

ok

The story itself was really interesting and sweet. However, I didn't like the characters too much. I like funny quirky humor but the dialogue was kind of cringe at times. I also thought there was too much reliance on stereotypes to portray the characters. Daniel's whole internal dialogue about Six..."she's not like other girls because she doesn't carry a purse and doesn't wear makeup, and omg a girl fist bumped me and made a dirty joke, girls never do cool guy things like that!" The whole "not like other girls" stereotype is old and tired. I actually didn't finish this the first time because of how annoying it was and only finished it now because I want to read Finding Perfect, which I hope doesn't disappoint like this one did because I absolutely love All Your Perfects.

He is the sweetest

I fell in love with Daniel’s character in the first book. I only wish this was a full book instead of a five hour audiobook but it was still a wonderful read/listen. Daniels humor makes him so lovable plus he has so much love to give. This book is a must read!

Colleen Hoover is amazing

I absolutely loved Daniel's and Six's story. This book had all the feels in it. Colleen seriously knows how to make you fall in love with her characters. It was fun that this was Daniel's pov. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone.
