Book Review: Meet Cute by Helena Hunting


Title – Meet Cute

Author – Helena Hunting

Publication – 9th, April 2019.

Publisher – Piatkus

Genre – Romance, Contemporary & Adult Fiction

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?

Meet Cute was so cute, and I cringed hard at how embarrassingly cute, Kailyn and Dax’s meet-cute was. I’m currently binge watching Suits on Netflix, hence the only reason I understood lawyer terms such as buy-in and how important it is to move from associate to partner and named partner etc.

Even though the characters are lawyers and they do work, the law was more on the sideline to the drama that was unfolding in this very cute book. Something tragic brings Dax and Kailyn together and they have to figure out the best way to navigate life with a 13 years old, they really want to keep custody of.

As far as the plot went the story is very predictable, but it was still fun reading the various characters antics especially little Em’s. I loved how Kailyn was portrayed and what she embodied, she reminded me greatly of Rachel on Suits. I didn’t think much of Dax he was an alright guy I guess, and I was really waiting for them to stick it to Aunty Linda, I mean it was obvious from the start what her motives were.

This story was a very comforting read and kept me company last night when I was finding it hard to sleep. I really enjoyed this book and it’s very different from Puck, this book was too cutesy and I’m all for it.
