Tour! A Book Review of Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot




Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 17, 2012
Publisher: Butterfly Books, LLC

The Blurb:
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 Review:
Unmaking Hunter Kennedy is the first book I've read by Ann Eliot, and I'm definitely not disappointed. I loved high school, and this book took me back to those days. Vere is a little bit of a nerd, and definitely had her quirks. Hunter was the ultimate dream guy. He had the bad boy thing going on, he's famous, has a good sense of humor...Yeah, he had it all. Needless to say, the two were opposites, but they worked. And they were so darn cute together. The book wasn't all light and fluffy. There were serious themes woven in such as, depression and suicide. All in all, this was a super fun book to read. It was the ultimate high school fantasy and just plain fun to read. I think this is a great book for all audiences to enjoy.

About the Author:
I write MG and YA full time. I'm a member SCBWI, RWA and Pikes Peak Writers. My work has been a finalist in the Heart of Denver Molly Contest and won second at the PPWC conference contest. Along with a friend and a group of motivated teen girls, I run a website called www.yaromance.com. It, like my YA work, is devoted to all things girl inspired for YA that include things like first kisses, tummy butterflies and great romance.I've worked as an online marketer and develper for Towrrecords.com, FOX TV, and UNM Engineering. When I'm not writing, I'm a freelance web developer and marketer. I manage four websites and volunteer teaching writing to several groups and schools in Colorado Springs. I love to work with kids and teens who love learning about 'story' and who want to write.I've got an Italian-Canadian mom and an Irish-American dad. This mean my kids do Irish Dance, and we travel tons, love  food, hugs, nuns and noisy family reunions. When not pining for Tim Horton's to open in Colorado, I ponder Joseph Campbell. His work has inspired me to study story structure and how emotion within a story can move people through time and across cultures. Emotion is the key to everything. I owe JC for keeping me on a journey through the world mythologies, folk tales, and the collective unconsciousness while I search for my own bliss in stories.

I write full time, and I'm all about fate, destiny, and how it feels to fall in love. My favorite thing to write is a first kiss.

I've worked as an online marketer and develper for Towrrecords.com, FOX TV, and UNM Engineering. I love to teach writing workshops and work with adults, kids and teens who enjoy learning about 'story' and who want to write or learn about story structure and the craft of writing.

I'm blessed with an Italian-Canadian mom and an Irish-American dad. This means my summers are full of huge family reunions, food, yelling and too much travel.
