Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
The third book in the series is Finding Cinderella, released in 2014. Sometimes, people need a little push to believe in love again. For eighteen year old Daniel, it took a chance encounter in the dark with a girl to remind him of the power of love-at-first-sight. In the span of one hour, they profess their love for each other and make a pact: it would only last one hour and it would be only make-believe. But when their hour was up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel couldn't help but feel that what happened between them seemed perfect only because they were pretending it was. Moments like that happen only in fairy tales...or so he thought. 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 that exists in fairy tales. . . it only further threatens it.

What are the trigger warnings for hopeless by Colleen Hoover?
Colleen Hoover's novel, Hopeless, deals with some difficult and potentially triggering topics. Bullying, child sexual abuse, the death of a parent, kidnapping, rape, and suicide are all present in the book. As a result, readers should be aware of these potential triggers before they begin reading. Hopeless is ultimately a story of hope and redemption, but it includes some very dark and disturbing elements. Those who are sensitive to these topics may want to avoid the book or be prepared for some tough scenes. However, Hopeless is also an incredibly powerful and moving novel, and many readers have found it to be an incredibly rewarding read despite its difficult subject matter.
What age is hopeless for?
This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence. Readers are advised to proceed with caution. Despite the potential risks, however, This Book is still an incredibly gripping and thought-provoking read.
What order do I read the Hopeless series?
I would recommend starting with Hopeless, then reading Losing Hope, followed by Finding Cinderella, and finally finishing with Finding Perfect. However, you could also read the books in any order you like - they can all be enjoyed as stand-alone stories.
The series begins with Hopeless, which tells the story of how Sky and Holder meet and fall in love. While the book is primarily a romance, it also deals with some heavier topics like abuse and addiction. This is followed by Losing Hope, which picks up after Sky and Holder have parted ways. The book explores the idea of second chances, and whether or not it's possible to overcome a difficult past.
Is Hopeless and All Your Perfects connected?
Hopeless was written in 2012. It’s about Sky and Holder. Losing Hope follows up Hopeless. It’s a retelling of Hopeless from Holder’s point of view. Finding Cinderella is about Sky and Holder’s friends, Six and Daniel. That completes the Hopeless series. But then comes All Your Perfects, which is completely unrelated to the previous Hopeless series. All your perfects is a standalone novel and doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. Ideas that involved characters from both All Your Perfects and Finding Cinderella, led to Hoover writing Finding Perfect. You don’t have to read Finding Perfect if you liked how Finding Cinderella and All Your Perfects ended. They aren’t cliffhangers. But if you want to know more, Finding Perfect sort of closes both of those books
