  Publishers Weekly Review

Naming a book after a clichAc of the genre is a brave move that doesn't pay off for Hunting (the Pucked series). The first encounter between Kailyn Flowers and Daxton Hughes is far from cute; it's as forced and foolish as Dax's best friend, Felix, whose dialogue includes such immortal lines as "Teenage girls are like rabid, angry puppies." This thread of misogyny runs through the book, punctuated by nonconsensual touching in professional and public spaces and similar boundary-ignoring behavior ("I keep pushing, though, because she's obviously flustered," Dax narrates without a hint of self-awareness). After their initial connection, Kailyn and Dax part on bad terms. Eight years later, Dax, a former child star turned entertainment lawyer, hires Kailyn, a trust lawyer, to secure his young sister Emme's financial future. His parents are active in the process-until they're killed in a crash. Dax is named Emme's guardian, but his shady aunt sues for custody, which keeps Kailyn in the picture as Emme's conservator. Meanwhile, Kailyn's boss bribes her to lure Dax to their firm. The tragedy is as cheap and forced as the comedy, and the romance is a kid-centered enemies-to-lovers scenario that brings nothing memorable to the table. Readers will be too put off by Dax's obnoxious aggression to find anything romantic in this disappointing novel. Agent: Kimberly Brower, Brower Literary & Mgmt. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Summary
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. <br> "As charming as its title, but it's also so much more... Fans of Jasmine Guillory's The Wedding Date and Helen Hoang's The Kiss Quotient will love Meet Cute ." -- The Washington Independent Review of Books <br> 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... <br> 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? <br> Goodreads Hottest Romances of 2019 Featured in Entertainment Weekly O, The Oprah Magazine Best Romance Novels of 2019 Featured on PopSugar Women's Health Best Romance Novels of 2019 SheReads Most Anticipated Reads of 2019 Heroes & Heartbreakers Anticipated Books of 2019 Chatelaine's Hottest Romances of 2019
