Once Upon A Coffee (Meet Cute Romance) by Kait Nolan

A blind date and a case of mistaken identity just might lead to love...

After a long series of stinkers, when a respectful match from an online dating site asks to meet Avery Cahill in real life, she agrees. Invoking her favorite romantic comedy, they arrange to meet in a local coffee shop with a flower and a book.

Under a serious deadline to finish a group project for his MBA--solo--the only thing Dillon Lange wants is peace and quiet. When a beautiful stranger sits down in his booth at the coffee shop, he knows he ought to say something about not being who she thinks he is, but he can't resist her smile or her engaging conversation.

How long can he keep up the charade? And what will happen when her real date shows up?

A short story of approximately 7,500 words.

This story is a crossover with the Wishful series, which features Kait's full length contemporary romances.

Q: What makes the Meet Cute Romance series special?

"Meet cute" is a term used to describe a situation in which a future romantic couple meets for the first time. Meet Cute Romance is a series of contemporary romantic shorts celebrating the possibilities of that first meeting.

Q: Who would dig these books?

Meet Cute Romances are designed to be a fast (but not too fast--these are full novelettes, not short stories of only a scene or two), lunchtime or coffee break read to give you a bright spot of romance in your day. If you're looking for a quick romantic pick me up, these short contemporary romances are sure to be right up your alley.

Q: What order should I read the books in?

These novelettes are each stand-alone and can be read in any order. Though there are a few recurring characters in some, so if you want to read in chronological order, they go like this:

* Once Upon a Snow Day
* Once Upon a New Year's Eve
* Once Upon an Heirloom
* Once Upon A Coffee
* Once Upon A Setup

Q: Are there crossovers with other series?

YES! Two of my Meet Cutes tie in with my longer, southern romance series set in Wishful, Mississippi. Wishful is a collection of southern romance novels honoring my Mississippi roots and exploring love in a small town. You can try the first book in the series, To Get Me To You, for FREE! It comes just after Once Upon A Coffee. Once Upon A Setup is a companion novelette to Be Careful, It's My Heart (Book 2 in Wishful) and a prequel to Just For This Moment (Book 4 in Wishful, coming in Spring 2016).

GJRA. 27 pages that is designed to get you to buy the 10 books that follow. It was a cute story but man I would be hostile if I had paid for it. Leaves you kinda hanging. I really like Kait Nolan's writing but I don't want to read a cliffhanger and will not if I know it is one. GJRA

These cute romance shorts are a great way to discover a new author, and I have! Sometimes serendipity plays a big role when mistaken identify turns into a match made for two. Great characters, interesting conversation and an introduction to a quaint little southern town that I know I'm going to visit again and again.

Avery is going on a blind date with Ross. She met him in a on-line dating site but doesn't know what he looks like. When she enters coffee shop she is told he is upstairs. Dillon is the only guy sitting upstairs so she thinks this is Ross. Blind date is going well until the real Ross appears. Real cute story. Short but we'll written. joy943

This was a short freebie to get into a new Wishful Series. Once Upon a Coffee epitomizes that First Meet of a Blind Date from a Dating Match Site. Yes, it is very short, but packed with a bit of everything anyone who has indeed met a blind date from a dating site, but has no profile picture so this is truly a Blind Date. A mixup at the meeting site ensues, with mistaken identities and without giving more away just read it yourself. The first full book in the series is offered as a freebie so now I am off to read that. If the author can pack this little ditty in about 25 pages at a 4 star rating. Wonder what her full story packs in at.

Nice short story. Makes me want to follow their journey together. Author's writing flows nicely. Easy to read, no annoying quirks! For sure will order more from this HEA author.

Even though the synopsis says everything; I went ahead and read this 30 pages of supposed cuteness! I truly embarrassed to admit it! Folks, there's nothing more to it. Just know that it's "cute" and move on.
