Meet Cute
Meet Cute | 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. Kailyn Flowers was always calm, rational, and controlled-until she ended up sprawled all over Daxton Hughes, the former actor she totally crushed on as a teenager. Then she did the unthinkable: She became a mortifying fangirl in five seconds flat, which may or may not have included professing her undying love. And oddly, he didn't run away. In fact, their meet cute led to a friendship she never saw coming. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming, either... Now Dax needs her help. As guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister, he's in way over his head. And though Kailyn hasn't forgiven Dax, she isn't heartless enough to make him fend for himself, either. Soon their friendly meetings turn into flirty dinner dates, and Kailyn can feel their chemistry is as explosive as ever. But how can she possibly let down her guard again to a guy who has heartbreak written all over him?

We got off to a rocky start as it wasn‘t quite the fluffy book I was anticipating, but all is well that ends well. Couldn‘t stop listening!

I‘m enjoying Meet Cute so far, but I feel bamboozled. It‘s been an emotional few weeks for me and I was looking for something cute and fun, and I ended up tearing up in chapter 3. Nothing about this cover screams “emotional”. Sigh.

LiteraryinLititz Agreed. This cover screams light and fluffy! 5d

I‘m about to be a total outlier on this one but...
I liked the characters and I liked the idea of the set up. I liked the dialogue and I loved the younger sister.
BUT
There is no way that these two should have been carrying on a relationship while she was involved in their legal situation - and that wasn't even addressed. There was a way to write this where it wasn‘t so ethically murky but the more i think about this, the more annoyed I get!

Oh yeah, I am behind again this week.😬Just trying to survive until the 3-day weekend. Pardon me, I‘m going to cheat & do 2 prompts to catch up. The male lead in this romance is a #Star on the heroine‘s favorite tv series when they meet cute at college. When she thinks he wronged her & made her GPA suffer & they meet again years later, she isn‘t too willing to forgive him & feels she doesn‘t want to give him #AllOfMyHeart...at first.💛

squirrelbrain Well done on the #doubledip ! Sorry for stealing your hashtag @Cinfhen ! 🤣 3mo

Good premise but it after a while it got overly dramatic. Fangirl all grown up but not. And a bad case of overexplain. So. Many. Adverbs.

Prepare for a binge of reviews. I enjoyed it. Fun read. TV heartthrob crush + frenemies. My favorite scene may be the CVS scene. There are some sad parts, but overall, light hearted.

The ‘meat‘ (pun intended) of this book is a serious topic. But as a RomCom it‘s filled with the sexual tension and immature thoughts of otherwise intelligent adults that would be wildly inappropriate in serious dramatic fiction. However, from a RomCom perspective, I think it‘s pretty darn ‘cute‘ (pun intended yet again). ... I don‘t think the cover art matches the story, at all - in case you‘re likely to choose by the cover.

This is a super cute book. The romance is sweet and all the characters are great. The prologue gave me excruciating amounts of second hand embarrassment, but it was worth it despite that.

I've been listening to this one while trying out a new recipe today--Cauliflower Parm! Only set the fire alarm off four times 🤣😂. Anyway, so far the Aunt Flo section has had me cracking up the most in this book!

BennettBookworm Haha so relatable 🔥🔥🔥 4mo
Kaylamburson Lol! My biggest problem is NYC apartments are so small, it's impossible for the fire alarm to be the required six feet away from the oven, so it goes off whenever I have it on for longer than 30 minutes 😭 @BennettBookworm 4mo

Disappointed with the plot. The main characters are lawyers yet they‘re acting like high school kids. And Kailyn? I‘m not very impressed with her. Well, Dax too. All he thought are how he finds her sexy blah blah blah when they‘re supposed to discuss about the case. #romancebook

I really enjoyed reading this book.
A heart breaking story with love and family struggles. The characters were so real and the story felt really realistic to me. I haven't read a contemporary that I like this much in a long time. I highly recommend this book.
I will definitely buy this book to have it in my collection. For now, I only bought it on kindle.

I think this might be my last Helena Hunting. I have read three of her books now and her writing doesn't do anything for me. I thought the plot of this one had potential, but ended being too drawn out. I just think there are better romance authors out there right now.

Purrfectpages I bailed on this one. It was too all over the place for me. 5mo

So I‘ve been super busy and haven‘t had much time to read this month. However, I have found that any time I am able to read I haven‘t looked forward to opening this book. That has to account for something. That‘s why at 60% in I‘ve finally decide to cut my losses and bail.

LiteraryinLititz Sounds like the right call, especially if your reading time is at a premium lately. 5mo

Really between a pick & so-so but I'll round it up because it was an easy & mostly enjoyable read & I liked the premise of a fangirl meeting her celebrity crush at law school, thinking he wronged her & hating him for the next several years until he needs her help to keep his recently orphaned teenage sister & she needs him to help her make partner. Predictable but cute & this week I really needed a book I didn't have to think too much about.🍭🍬

I felt the tone was a bit uneven, between the fun/cute/sexy moments and the tragic event the characters had to cope with. The resolution of every problem was predictable and felt rushed. While the romance was okay and the characters were mostly enjoyable, it was not enough to make it a “pick”. By the end, the whole “fangirl” thing was also getting annoying.

He is taking advantage of his mom working from home today (with a few reading breaks) to monitor his blood sugar by periodically taking naps on the patio. I'm working with his diabetes doctor to get his insulin well-regulated again, but otherwise he is doing well for his age.

I thought this would be a great summer romance, but...no.
It fell into so many lazy writing traps. Another book where guardianship is so mis-represented and someone can potentially sweep in and take over for a freaking lawyer?!? Whatever. Also, a women giving up partner for the guy. 🤢 book 10/10 for #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

Good things about Friday (besides that it is finally FRIDAY! 🎉)after an exhausting week. I finally 'graduated' to a permanent parking pass at work with a 10-minute walk & a diner along the way with fried rice bowls w/ an egg on top. It, some 80's music & a couple of chapters of this cute book before any of my coworkers show up are bliss. And Pandora reminded me that the 2nd season of Big Littles Lies starts this Sunday. Happy Friday everyone! 🤗

This was fun, light and breezy. The "evil" character was a little too silly/cartoonish even for this kind of book and the storyline not particularly strong. But still. Enjoyable if you're just looking for some brain candy, you know? Think Hallmark Channel movies ?

A sweet and sexy romance between a former teen idol and a fan girl, except now they are both lawyers. One is trying to keep custody of his sister, the other is trying to get the opportunity to take on more pro bono child custody cases.

"Meet Cute" : defined as the moment when two opposite protagonists meet for the first time in a story, movie, or on stage. Fun storyline, though the endless reminders of how cute/hot/buff/adorable etc etc Daxton is was over the top. I got it, he's cute, girls flock to him. Reminding me throughout the entire book is unneccessary. Anyway, 3.5☆, cute rom-com, get the bad guy, drawn together in grief is worth your time. Some descriptive sex.

I've been in the romance reading game for a good twenty years, so by now, I know what works and what doesn't work in a romance novel for me. "Meet Cute" most definitely checks off all of my boxes. It has funny and likeable characters, great chemistry, and a plot that had my eyes glued to the pages. One of the best romance novels I've ever read! ❤
