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?

Amazing Book!

This is my first book by Colleen Hoover and it won't be my last. I loved all the characters especially Daniel and Six. And the narrator.... Wow. He did an amazing job with the narrator and really brought the characters to life! I highly recommend this book!

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.

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.

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.

Awe!!!!

Such a great ending of the hopeless series. This is a simple, short, and sweet story about Sky’s best friend, Six and Holder’s best friend, Daniel. They are truly meant for each other. This made it a full circle for me! I love the epilogue!!!!! Best audio listening ever, too!!!

Too much drama and teenaged angst. the narrator wasn't bad. I expected more from the ratings.

Cute High School Story

For a short story, it was a cute story.

Of course, there was high school sex but there weren't any drawn out sex scenes or drama scenes. Sometimes high school books have so much drama it gets to be unbelievable, but this book didn't have anything like that.

I enjoyed the characters. Daniel was funny and I actually know someone with a similar personality so it was easy to enjoy the banter between him and his friends. I laughed and chuckled several times. There wasn't any major obstacle to overcome like ex-girlfriends or anything like that. It was just a short, cute high school story of two people finding each other. Besides, any story that can make me laugh or feel emotions towards the characters is worth listening to.

The narration was smooth and pleasant. I will have to look for more books read by this narrator.

Funny!

Daniel is so funny! Loved and laughed a lot! A nice change of pace from the seriousness of the first two books.
