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...
Unmaking Hunter Kennedy
Hunter Kennedy's life is falling apart for someone who has everything. He has been in rehab for six weeks after crashing his car into his house while drunk. This is the last straw for his mother. Without telling Hunter, she replaces him with a look a like and is going to send him to his aunt's house in Colorado to live and go to school like a normal teenager. After the death of his father, Hunter has had to be the bread winner and has never know what "real" teenagers act like. A magnificent disguise fools everyone and no one will know who he really is.
Enter Vere. She has had a crush on Curtis for years. He is the love of her life. He just doesn't know it yet! Vere and her brother Charlie are introduced to Hunter, who Vere does not recognize at first. They are the only ones who will know his true identity. To everyone else he will be the nerdy new kid, Dustin McHugh.
The plan is working like a charm. Curtis is finally starting to notice Vere and Hunter is going to give her pointers in how to win him over. While helping Vere overcome her crippling shyness, Hunter starts to notice the real Vere. Is Hunter Kennedy, the guy who could have anyone, suddenly having feelings for Vere? The one girl who is not interested in him.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Where have you been all my life Anne Eliot? This is just a sweet, sweet story that touches your heart. Isn't it every girls dream to have a celebrity fall in love with them? I was always rooting for Hunter and Vere to end up together, especially when Curtis starts acting like a jerk. I was disappointed that it took them so long to get together. And the kiss! What a kiss! It will knock your socks off. I know my first kiss was not that interesting. Anne has written a really good book and I recommend this book to anyone. I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
The fabulous Anne Eliot
