Epic Romance Novel Meet Cutes You'll Fall in Love With
We're always here for a good meet cute!
Meet Cutes In Romance Novels
Meet cutes imply a "cute" first meeting between a future couple in romance, but that isn't always the case, as evidenced by some of the meet cute books in this article. Sometimes they're awkward and embarrassing, and sometimes they're downright hostile. Sometimes they are really adorable though.
In a romance book, the meet cute is one of the best parts. It gives a hint to how the couple's relationship will play out. Will they be antagonistic to each other until they sexual tension is overwhelming? Or will one of them ask each other out right away before they encounter problems right away?
We decided to go very literal with the meet cute books in this article, all of the books containing the words somewhere in the title or on the cover. It was fun to see all the different stories authors came up with in their books even with the same concept!
1. Meet-Cute by C.C. Dado
C.C. Dado's novella, Meet-Cute, is the adorably awkward tale of Elliot Beck, an insecure guy. He knows he doesn't have the physique a lot of guys are looking for and he isn't a talented artist or singer, so he hides behind his quick-witted sarcasm while secretly hoping a bad boy will notice him.
After a misadventure with a guy who leaves Elliot naked and tied to his bed, his best friend convinces Elliot that he should try dating a nice guy for once. During an awkward encounter in the men's bathroom with a guy named Chase - who looks like Adonis and happens to be a fitness instructor - Elliot may have finally found the bad boy of his dreams.
2. Meet Cute by various authors
An anthology of short stories by some of the most popular young adult authors today, Meet Cute is filled with adorable stories of "how they first met." A few of the stories include two girls living in the Bay Area meeting online via a rather cranky customer service Tweet in a tale by Nina LaCour, a missing library book bringing two people together in a story by Jennifer Armentrout, and a young rock star and a magazine intern hitting it off in story by Nicola Yoon. Meet Cute is an adorable, romantic read that isn't to be missed!
