Unmaking Hunter Kennedy

Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot

Goodreads Summary:
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...

My review:
This was such a cute book! It was totally relatable along with being hilarious. A lot of the thoughts that were going through Vere's mind is totally stuff that I have thought or done before. It was a cute story about first crushes, first kisses, and falling in love for the first time. Through in a celebrity with a secret disguise and you have a hilarious story.
I loved Vere and Hunter/Dustin's friendship. They got along so well and really are perfect for each other. I loved getting to watch them got to know each other and secretly develop feelings for each other. They were so sweet together, even when arguing. You could tell how much they cared for the other person.
I did not have many problems with this book, but there were a couple. One was the length. For a book for young people, it was way longer than I expected it to be. The other problem was how slow the book moved at times. When reading the blurb, I expected the kiss to happen by at least the middle of the book, but it wasn't until almost the end.

4 stars
I recieved this book for free in return for an honest review.
