Meet Cute
Meet Cute - Helena Hunting

"I don't want to for our lives to be over; I want to know right now, what will be?"

Daxton Hughes is a former teen heart throb clearly modeled on James Van Der Beek, who played the title character in Dawson's Creek. One of the big giveaways is that there is a popular internet meme of Daxton crying ("crying Dawson," anyone)? Also, the author most likely took the "W" and the "S" in the name "Dawson" and replaced each with the next letter in the alphabet. It's kind of funny that the author based the name on the character Van Der Beek played, since Daxton is the actor who played the lead in his universe's Dawson's Creek (It's My Life.) But I guess "Janfs" would have been harder to pronounce than "Daxton."

Coincidentally, I have recently been binge-watching the show Don't Trust the B in Apt 23, which featured Van Der Beek playing a post-Dawson version of himself, and of course the show made reference to the crying meme.

So, the female lead in Meet Cute is Kailyn Flowers. Five years before, she and Daxton Hughes graduated from the same law-school class at UCLA. Kailyn had been a huge fangirl and had met Hughes by physically colliding with him, when they were both in their first year. Through law school, they had a friendly rivalry that helped keep them both sharp. But at the end of final year, she relied on him to turn in a term paper for her, only to learn later that the professor had deducted points from the paper for late submission. The lost points caused her to just miss graduating first in their class, a position that went to Daxton. Ever since then, she has nursed a grudge, and told anyone who would listen that he's a terrible person.

One day, Daxton appears at Kailyn's office with his parents; they are setting up a trust for Daxton's 13-year-old sister Emme. That would be the end of their interactions for a long time, if not for the parents dying in a car accident soon after. Within the past six months, the parents have changed their will, so that Emme's legal guardian will be Dax, instead of her Aunt Linda.

Kailyn is needed as a lawyer, trustee, advocate for Emme, and a friend. Everything aligns for a romance between the leads, and I quickly picked up on some Pride and Prejudice playbook components. "Who does he think he is? He's SUCH A JERK! And I'll tell you why, based on [misunderstanding to be cleared up later]! But look how good he is with his little sister! He actually loves her and protects her!"

There were some elements that pulled me out of the story here and there, but overall, I could enjoy the book. Romance is generally not my genre, but I enjoyed this one, on balance. The reason I picked this read is that it was suggested in my library's summer-reading challenge, under the category "Light & Sweet Beach Reads."

Sexy
Summer Fling: A Sexy Summer Anthology - Helena Hunting,Vi Keeland,R.S. Grey,Sarina Bowen,Penelope Ward,Willow Winters, L.J. Shen

This is an anthology of 6 books by 7 incredible authors.  FREE to you for a limited time only. I will choose one short story to write my review.  My review will be on Sarina Bowen's Lucky Shot.

 

Bess is new employee working for an established sports agency.  With her birhday coming up, her boss invites her to dinner with some new clients.  She figures it will give her experience, so why not go?

 

Mark AKA "Tank" is excited to be chosen to work with the team in New York.  He was more than pleased to meet such a sexy woman at dinner too.  Maybe they should get to know one another?

 

This was a quick jaunt into the lives of some very talented characters.  I was pleased to get to read their "meet cute."  Right from the beginning they are attracted to each other.  The fact they are intelligent only adds to the attraction.  We see these amazing characters again in the current book Sure Shot.  This anthology brought some serious fun reads to me.  I was very grateful to get this collection for FREE also.  Link for you to get your copy is below.  I give this anthology a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Holes Ridiculous Characters Crude and Nicknames
Pucked - Helena Hunting

2.5 Smexy, and a lot of orgasims, yep a lot, giggling (ugg) and a monster sized co*k. I enjoyed parts of this but overall not for me. It was a bit too smexy for my taste, sex was the answer to almost every contact. I really liked the story but it kept getting thrown to the side so they could swap body fluids. Really he hit the spots so many times it was crazy. The female main character was so open and communicative and then so shut off and childish, The silly nicknames, were kind of cute in the beginning but were old and tired by the end of the book. Okay and this weird part with his mother, what was that all about ? never explained and really strange. It was what is was, a sexy erotic sex tale, a story with a lot of stuffed holes. Oh and nearly instant love/lust- yeh right. not for me

 The Good Luck Charm
The Good Luck Charm - Helena Hunting

 


I Picked Up This Book Because: Random pick from the library.

The Characters:

Delilah:
Ethan:
Carmen, Emory, Ethan’s parents

The Story:

The writing is fine. Concise and consistent, Ms Hunting is a good story teller however the story was underwhelming for me. I never reached that level of “don’t want to put the book down”. It was more like “I just want to be done”. The characters were good. I am curious to see if Carmen and Dr Lovely have a book in the future because I think there’s some chemistry there. (view spoiler) I think I just didn’t feel any kind of drama or urgency in the story. I know their lives were going to be impacted by potential trades but even the end of that felt anti climatic.

Overall it’s a decent book about second chance love.

The Random Thoughts:
