REVIEW – MEET CUTE by Helena Hunting


The New York Times bestselling author of Pucked and The Good Luck Charm delivers a Hollywood happily-ever-after where a famous heartthrob falls for his ultimate fangirl in this sexy standalone romantic comedy.

Talk about an embarrassing introduction. On her first day of law school, Kailyn ran – quite literally – into the actor she crushed on as a teenager, ending with him sprawled on top of her. Mortified to discover the Daxton Hughes was also a student in her class, her embarrassment over their meet-cute quickly turned into a friendship she never expected. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming either…

Now, eight years later, Dax is in her office asking for legal advice. Despite her anger, Kailyn can’t help feeling sorry for the devastated man who just became sole guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister. But when her boss gets wind of Kailyn’s new celebrity client, there’s even more at stake than Dax’s custody issues: if she gets Dax to work at their firm, she’ll be promoted to partner.

The more time Kailyn spends with Dax and his sister, the more she starts to feel like a family, and the more she realizes the chemistry they had all those years ago is as fresh as ever. But will they be able to forgive the mistakes of the past, or will one betrayal lead to another?

I look back up at him, and my explanation gets stuck in my throat when I stop to really take him in. I recognize his face as one I’ve had endless fantasies about all through my teen years. And into my adult ones.

MEET CUTE is an ”enemies-to-lovers” romance with just the right dose of schmexy, heart, and a little dash of intrigue all rolled up into one perfect package. I instantly fell in love with the main characters and the plot. This is why Helena Hunting ranks high on my list of favorite authors.

Kailyn and Dax meet during their last year of law school. Kailyn acted like an overly excited fangirl because Dax was the star of her all-time favorite tv show and also her biggest Hollywood crush. He finds her to be incredibly adorable but for whatever reason, wasn’t brave enough to make a move on her. Then a misunderstanding causes Kailyn to view Dax as the enemy. The two don’t end up seeing each other until several years after graduation when Dax shows up with his parents at Kailyn’s office to set up a trust for his thirteen-year-old sister, Emme. The attraction is still there between them but Kailyn is still very much holding on to her grudge with him from their law school days.

The two meet up again several months later when Dax’s parents are killed in a car accident and Kailyn becomes the conservator of Emme’s trust. Dax is named his sister’s legal guardian and his aunt, who isn’t happy about the situation, ends up filing a lawsuit to gain custody of Emme. While Kailyn isn’t thrilled about being forced to spend time with Dax, and she’s also not convinced of his intentions where his sister’s inheritance is concerned, she can’t deny that deep down she has an out of control burning attraction to him.

While Dax is struggling with his new role as a parent and the legal battle with his aunt, he also can’t deny the strong feelings that he has for Kailyn. Can he manage raising a teenager, his hefty workload, his aunt’s lawsuit, and a new romantic relationship? Will Kailyn choose her lifelong career ambitions over love?

Here are my overall ratings:
