The Cover: The Meet Cute cover is bright, very eye catching and I adore it. Yellow is such a happy color and I think it’s a great book cover that I definitely want my shelf soon!
Basics: Meet Cute was released on April 9th 2019 and is 384 pages long. Genre wise Meet Cute belongs to contemporary romance.
Description: 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?
Overall thoughts: Meet Cute was such a fun and lovely romance book! I thought it was quirky and interesting with that side of ‘oh my gosh this situation is SO awkward but I can’t put this book down!’ I loved it! Helena Hunting is laugh out loud funny and her writing is something I find very relatable.
Dax and Kailyn were a great couple to fall in love with and root for. They had a bumpy road and I really enjoyed reading how they overcame those bumps. I also find their rivalry super entertaining, how they constantly wanted to win and be better over the other is just so relatable. I think everyone at some point in their lives has someone like that, maybe they don’t fall in love with that person but still…that concept of Dax and Kailyn’s relationship really intrigued me. Not to mention their chemistry leaped off the pages!
Meet Cute will definitely one of my favorite contemporary romance books of the year and Helena Hunting should be very proud, this book knocked it out of the park!
