Blog Tour: Unmaking Hunter Kennedy

Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot
Synopsis:
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 tortur
es 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:

First off I have to say I am completely in love with this book. I fell in love from the first couple of pages and never turned back.

Hunter Kennedy's life is an all around mess. His mom is finally picking him up from where he's been hiding out the last couple weeks talking to a counselor in a home for troubled teens. Thinking he's about to go back home and back to his life of full time worker and band member he gets the shock of his life when his mom tells him he is moving to Colorado and needs to unmake himself, starting with his hair. Realizing his old life as he knew it is going to be put on hold while he's being hidden away Hunter feels angry, alone, and betrayed. Forced to deal with this strange life he's counting down the days until he gets to go back home in L.A.. That is until he meets Vee.

Vee is almost the complete opposite of Hunter. Always smiles, laughing, and finds just about everything in life amazing and wonderful. Vee and her brother have been assigned to unmake the famous Hunter Kennedy to seem just like everyone else. Vee taking this idea is stride wants Hunter to remake her while showing him the ropes to her small town, to get the guy she's always wanted.

Hunter thinking this will be easy takes on the task. Unfortunately Vee makes him feel again. Feel as if he's not alone anymore, makes him...happy. When Vee's make-over finally lands her the guy she always wanted Hunter begins to realize just how hard he's fallen for Vee, and how she is completely with the wrong guy. When she finally asks him to kiss her he can't resist and that's when his new identity betrays and completely tumbles out of control.

All in all, I love this book with all my heart. There was so much humor and the story along with characters and everything else was so well written. A part of me really connected with Hunter. His life hadn't been an easy one and most of the book he was dealing with his past and his depression. When I was in high school I was going through a similar situation where I was seeing a counselor and I had next to no one to talk to. It was funny reading about Vee as well because before and after I suffered through my about two years of counseling I am and was just like Vee. I love life and that's what really made me love Vee as well. I hope EVERYONE in the whole widest world picks up a copy of this awesome book!! Let me know if your liked the review by commenting too!! <3 font="font">

About the author:
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. 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 world mythologies, folk tales, and the collective unconsciousness while I search for my own bliss in stories.
