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 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?
So, this is my first Colleen Hoover book and right when I started the book, I was completely engrossed and in the middle of being sucked into the book I was yelling at myself…. as to WHY THE HECK I had waited so long to take advantage of reading her books?? Granted this is a novella and I HATED ‘EM because I always want MORE of the book, but gosh, all of that was blown out of the window when I started this book.
Just, oh, frickin’ man.
Right when I started reading I started smirking and my heart started to beat a little bit faster because POR FIN (FINALLY) I was able to get sucked into not only the plot, but I was IMMERSED INTO A PERSONAL LEVEL into the lives characters from the get-go! Lately I’ve had to keep reading a book in order to get stuck in a book due to my book slump.
So, in the beginning, Daniel, (the sexy male protagonist) hides in this closet at his highschool so he can escape his class when lo and behold, this girl barges in on him. Mind you, the lights are OFF so neither can see the other. Things happen, they get to know each other and BOOM, fireworks, kissing, and a whole lot of…. Well, you know..
Time passes and now these two FINALLY meet again, but get THIS..neither one of them know they’ve met before because they never actually saw each other face to face! So yeah…drama. (the good kind though. Promise.) ♥
♥Daniel: I had a hard time figuring out how he looked so I ended up picturing him in one way, which I’m pretty sure it didn’t even TOUCH how the dude really looks. One of the things I did LURVE about him though was the fact that he was so NICE and that made me swoon over him more, even though, PFFT, I usually go for the bad guys and the ones that are mysterious and all that. 😉
Being inside of Daniel’s head was DA BOMB, YO. *SQUEES*
♥Six: She’s cool too. This girl has had a BAD time with relationships and her views on them are so TWISTED that it made me feel bad for her. She’s had such bad relationships that it’s got her thinking it’s the only way to be. If you can imagine (and use your mind here) she’s “had” a lot of guys and “done” a lot.
Well, anyway, I only wish I could have gotten to know her and connected with her a little bit more, but pfft, IT’S FREAKING COLLEEN HOOVER, so, we’re all good. 😉
MY ONLY COMPLAINT?
It’s a novella! I mean, I feel that if the ENTIRE book was spent on them not knowing who the other is and both desperately searching for the one in which they made a connection with, it would have been one draggy.
But still, a girl can WISH for a longer story, can’t she?
So, this is actually rare for me not to find anything wrong with a book. I didn’t find anything in particular wrong with the characters, the plot, NOTHIN’. Amazing right? Yes. Yes, I know.
Over to you:
Have you guys tried Coho (Colleen Hoover) –》 I only know her abbreviations because I stalk her on FB.
Literally. And no, no I am not ashamed.
