4 of 5 stars
I guess Colleen gets to stay on that beautifully polished pedestal that I’ve placed her on! You know, the same one that practically every other book lover alive has boosted her up onto. I’m pretty sure this is the very first novella that made me grin all awkwardly through the entire thing. I was like a kid in the candy store on every single page of this playful coming of age romance.
I love Daniel. In fact, I think I’m in love with him. Deeply. He’s f**king adorable. I’d list all of the things that I love about him, but then I’d feel like a copy cat as that is the very thing he does over Six (I have mixed emotions about the name Six too, so don’t feel bad for thinking it.)
The way they meet is epic, and the way they rekindle that spark without even realizing who the other is, is perfect. I think my favorite feature about this book is the comfortably inappropriate playful banter. The personalities in this book are one of a kind, and hilarious.
The only reason I didn’t give this book a 5, is because I feel like Colleen is on a rating scale of her own. I would have most definitely rated this book a 5 for practically any other author, but for Colleen, I feel like a few of her books are better, so I don’t really have much choice but to give this one less than her others.
(Really though, I’ve even broken the rules and given her a 6 before, like the wrekless reviewer I really am! Review: It Ends With Us, by Colleen Hoover. 6 out of 5 stars… (if that’s even possible) I think it’s safe to say I’m a Hoover fan! lol)
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a novella about the search for happily ever after. This printed edition includes exclusive new material—a new epilogue and an essay written by the author.
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?
