Teaser Tuesday (29): Finding Cinderella (Hopeless #2 .5) by Colleen Hoover


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's Teaser comes from the following book:

Title: Finding Cinderella
(Hopeless # 2.5)
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books
Published: October 14, 2013
Purchase:  FREE on  Amazon 

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 comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.


My teaser:

"I pull her forward until our lips meet.  And holy shit, do they meet.  
Our mouths meld together like they used to be in love and 
they're just now seeing each other for the first time in years."

                                                                                     - 34%, Kindle location

And because I'm already going to Teaser Tuesday hell for breaking the two sentence rule... Every. Single. Week:

"'I love you, Holder!' I yell after him.  'Best friends forever!' He keeps walking forward, but lifts his hand in the air and flips me off."

                                                                                    - 75%, Kindle location

I inhaled this one!  Daniel's sense of humor and the completely inappropriate nicknames he saddles everyone with won me over in Losing Hope. This short story is both hilarious and heart-warming, AND it's FREE.  Seriously.  Freeeeeeeee.  

 I’d love to know what your Teaser is!
