Review Source: Netgalley

Talk about an embarrassing introduction. On her first day of law school, Kailyn ran - quite literally - into the actor she crushed on as a teenager, ending with him sprawled on top of her. Mortified to discover the Daxton Hughes was also a student in her class, her embarrassment over their meet-cute quickly turned into a friendship she never expected. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming either...

Now, eight years later, Dax is in her office asking for legal advice. Despite her anger, Kailyn can't help feeling sorry for the devastated man who just became sole guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister. But when her boss gets wind of Kailyn's new celebrity client, there's even more at stake than Dax's custody issues: if she gets Dax to work at their firm, she'll be promoted to partner.

The more time Kailyn spends with Dax and his sister, the more she starts to feel like a family, and the more she realizes the chemistry they had all those years ago is as fresh as ever. But will they be able to forgive the mistakes of the past, or will one betrayal lead to another?

I am pretty much obsessed with Helena Hunting.  I have been her fan since she first came out and have never been disappointed.  I always go into every one of her books completely blind because it's just how I roll and I love the whole, "unwrapping it like a present" feel.  The main description I can give this book is "cute".  It's a really cute and light book.

While this book is "cute and light", it does cover a couple heavy topics, which I appreciated and brought some additional depth.  I did find this story to be a little predictable but that never ruins the overall  experience for me.  I really love that the heroine, Kailyn Flowers, is a UCLA Law School grad.  I can't say ENOUGH how much I love a strong independent female.  Helena Hunting always gives me female characters I love.  I can sooooo relate with Kailyn's initial fan-girl encounter with the hero.  It's completely understandable because Daxton effin Hughes is absolutely gorgeous.  Instead of arrogant, though, Dax is sweet and genuine which makes him that much more lovable. 

I am rating this book with 4 stars.  I recommend it if you want a quick, light read.  It isn't my number one, favorite Helena Hunting book but I really enjoyed reading it, and definitely had some heart flutters and butterflies while reading.  I was able to read it in one sitting.
