Blog Tour: Unmaking Hunter Kennedy - Anne Eliot, Book Review (209).

Unmaking Hunter Kennedy


Publication: 17th October 2012
Publisher: Butterfly Books LLC
Pages: 437
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Appropriate: Young Adult

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...

High School Romance, first love, sweet romance
My Thoughts.
Over the past year I have become a big fan of contemporary romance books, so when I was sent an invitation to be a part of this blog tour I jumped at the chance, and I'm happy to say that this book was fantastic and it has definitely been added to my favourite books of this genre.

I'm sure every young girl has dreamed of their favourite celebrity falling in love with them, but what if you're a girl who is making under a celebrity that you don't really know of?
Well that's what drew me to this book.

Vere and her brother Charlie are roped into disguising and be-friending the gorgeous pop star Hunter Kennedy, lead singer of the group GuardeRobe.
After a car accident and prank that went horribly wrong, Hunter was sent into hiding by his Mum and manager Martin.

Vere's job is to turn him into a nerd, to completely disguise who he is, miraculously she has no trouble talking with Hunter, unlike her crush on her brother's best-friend Curtis, she's loved him ever since she was younger, but after "The Incident" which left Curtis in hospital, she is left a severe stammering, blushing mess everytime she comes into contact with him.

As thanks for helping him, Hunter agrees to help Vere with her confidence in having a normal conversation with Curtis without embarrassing  herself, between helping with that, he also helps with a makeover and as she has never been kissed before he offers to help her with that too, but when Hunter realises that he's falling for Vere himself, what's a guy to do, especially as he knows that he will eventually end up leaving and going back to his life as a world famous celebrity.

Unmaking Hunter Kennedy is a very fast, exciting and fun read, with a dose of romance that will leave you with a really good feeling, I definitely recommend this one.

I give this 5/5.
