How did you two meet?
The quintessential question asked to every couple. And the answer is usually some bubbly, lovey dovey tale of being struck in the bum by Cupid’s arrow.
My meet cute (well not so meet cute) is slightly different. I was trolling a wealthy neighborhood in Beverly Hills, searching for someone to take me as their bride, you know, to make my arch nemesis jealous who consequently just fired me.
He was stomping around the block like some sort of gorgeous ogre, mumbling about a business deal gone wrong and attempting to finagle his way out of it.
And that’s when we bumped into each other.
There were no sparks.
Not even a hint of blossoming love.
But next thing I knew, I was scarfing down free chips and guac, listening to this man lay out all of his problems which led to his big ask . . . he wanted me to be his Vivian Ward, you know, from Pretty Woman–minus the frisky behavior.
We’re talking about living in a mansion, intimate double dates, and pretending we were head over heels in love . . . and engaged. Can you imagine?
The absolute audacity.
But people do crazy things when they’re desperate. And I reeked of desperation. So, I struck up a deal.
My one big mistake, though . . . big . . . HUGE? I accidentally fell for the incomparable Huxley Cane.
Domineering, sexy, and full of snark, Not So Meet Cute has it all wrapped up into one stand out romance.
Huxley Cane… don’t mind me if I just go out and walk around my rich neighborhoods because PHEW I need me one of him. Headstrong in a I-got-everyones-best-interest-at-heart way, yet so, so lovable… I could not get enough of him.
“I’m confrontation’s bitch and avoid it at all costs, therefore – raises hand – here I am, doormat, at your service.”
I laughed so hard at that line. With Lottie, our lead female, I felt for her a lot. How she feels during this book, I’ve been there a bunch. However, I adored her persistence and her constant push and pull on Huxley. She is very much a family girl and works hard to earn what she deserves.
There is a good amount of spice in this book which oh yes how can you not with the chemistry between Huxley and Lottie. Also with the glimpses we get of Kelsey, JP, and Breaker… cannot wait to read the next books! Definitely all the feels!
