REVIEW: Where It Begins by Helena Hunting


* * * * * * * * * *


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting comes a new story in her Pucked series. The untold story of Skye and Sidney, and the origin story where Vi and Miller are teens when their parents start dating and fall in love…

I accidentally grabbed the wrong drink at the coffee shop. On the upside, the hot guy it belonged to chased me down to kindly swap with me. On the down side, the reason I grabbed the wrong drink in the first place is because the hot guy had just caught me checking out his ass…sets.

In my defense, his rear view is rather magnificent.

In true, humiliating form, I word-vomited a bunch of horrible nonsense. Including an unnecessary explanation of the trauma I’d evaded thanks to his chasing me down. Nothing could ruin my lactose-intolerant day faster than my one true nemesis: dairy.

I did not expect him to ask me out on a date after that.

I also didn’t expect the date to go well since my tendency to truth-vomit is high, and not everyone finds that quality endearing.

But apparently he does. Because he asks me out again.

And again.

Sidney Butterson (yes, it’s a weird last name) ticks all my boxes.

He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s employed and he’s ridiculously hot.

There’s one catch.

We’re both single parents. With teens.

And if our kids don’t like each other?

Well, we’re doomed.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Where It Begins by Helena Hunting was a sweet and steamy 1,001 Dark Nights novella in the Pucked series featuring single father Sidney Butterson and single mom Skye Hall, parents of Miller and Vi. This prequel novella was a gift to Hunting’s fans who really wanted this bit of Miller and Vi’s backstory. Sidney and Skye had me hooked from the start with their meet-cute coffee-shop mix up. Where It Begins lived up to its title and gave me a charming, endearing and nostalgic romance full of Helena’s signature blend of heart and heat. Five smooches from me for Where It Begins by Helena Hunting!
