After a car accident–an event he considers a prank gone bad–pop star, Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He’s supposed to rest, heal his scars and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work.

Worse, the girl who’s been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie, a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He’s never met a girl who’s never-been-kissed, believes in romance and thinks Hunter’s a ‘nice’ guy.

Funny thing is…Hunter is nice around Vere because she’s his first real friend. He also can’t seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he’d never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone, and helps his new bestie with her own makeover.

She tortures him daily for ridiculous guy advice on how to snag her life-long crush. A guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere, and sadly, one who has taken note of Vere’s transformation.

When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can’t resist…

And that’s when things get out of control… (Goodreads)

I cheated on NaNoWriMo in November to read this, because I needed to get lost in a book. Since I didn’t write a full review right away, this will be short and sweet…

Unmaking Hunter Kennedy was such a fun read! I wanted a sweet romance, some teenage angst, and I hoped for some fun, real, characters. This book fit the bill! I read it in practically one sitting, only putting it down to do necessary things… like, you know, eating.

This story made me tear up more than once, but it also made me laugh. And holy mother of first kisses! This is a heart-warming, feel-good, butterfly-inducing story about first kisses and first love.

    The kiss on the cover looks kind of awkward, but this book looks so sweet! I think I’ll definitely have to look for it, because I know I’ll be in the mood for something just like this soon.
