Book Review: Meet Cute by Helena Hunting | About That Story
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting 

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?

5 out of 5 stars

What a fantastic story! This is one of those books that I picked up and literally couldn't put back down. I fell in love with Dax, Kailyn, and Emme. It was filled with the perfect mix of humor and emotion and I loved every second!

This story had so many amazing moments and so much humor, I pretty much smiled my way through. I loved learning Dax and Kailyn's history and having them reconnect. It was the most adorable meet cute and an awesome way to introduce a story, I was immediately excited about what would happen next. There was great banter, antagonism, and playfulness. I adored Dax and Kailyn’s chemistry and watching their connection grow in the midst of a very tense situation.

This was fun and entertaining, which I was totally expecting, but I also found it really emotional and real, and that aspect blew me away. Here's this sad situation that Dax is in and it was just so well thought out and tastefully done. I also adored Daxton's sister Emme. I loved that teen angst and pain she brought to the story as well as some teenage fun, it was super cute.

I was literally on the edge of my seat, yelling at my Kindle, totally engrossed in the story because, I the reader, could see things that Dax and Kailyn couldn't. I loved that light and fun drama and could not wait for everything to come to a head. I was filled with so much anticipation because of the situation. I just love that feeling I get when I'm reading and I feel like I'm in the middle of it all.

There were so many great elements to this. Each person individually, Dax and Kailyn together, the wonderful relationship that Dax has with Emme, plus the bond Kailyn and Emme form were all amazing! I loved the dialogue and banter. The humor is priceless. There's a wonderful build that had me excited while reading and I didn’t want it to end. I absolutely loved this!
