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?

This is a cute romantic read with some lovely humour in it, as any fan of Hunting would expect.

Kailyn is a successful trust lawyer, but when an old rival from law school comes in with his parents for legal advice, all her bad feelings towards him resurface. As we get to understand why this still bothers her, I have to admit I did feel she had not maybe matured as much as one might have thought! Her fandom rather supported that theory later on, but I still found her a fun lead character.

Dax is now a successful lawyer, something he does in part credit to Kailyn, as she was the perfect competition at law school, forcing him to do better. His past as a child actor has never gone away, and as his character's biggest fan she embarrassed him at college. That said, he does admit that he had wanted to ask her out, but she was too fierce!

As things unfold, they are thrown together with a common goal, to make life easier for his teenage sister. There are some very moving scenes, and some very funny ones – and through it all we can see how her hurt from the past may finally be put to rest. However, issues at work may well damage anything that they are starting all over again. Aunt Linda's behaviour didn't feel like that much of a surprise to me, nor should it for two bright lawyers. It was a relief when that element was resolved and the outlook for them all looked a little brighter.

Overall an enjoyable read with a good conclusion and plenty of feels.

This was a cute book but it took me a while to really get into it. The characters were fascinating, but I did find myself skipping parts at the beginning of the book.

The latter half of the book was much more interesting to me than the world building that was in the first half.
