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

Sometimes love begins with a little friendly blackmail...

The historic Madrigal Theater in the heart of downtown Wishful is on the verge of closing its doors, and Piper Parish is on a mission to save it--even if it means pulling a little deception to get her best friend back up on the stage where she had her heart broken. When new-to-town newspaperman Myles Stewart catches on to his co-star's shenanigans, he has a choice--keep quiet or get to the bottom of things. He's never been able to resist a story...and he's not sure he wants to resist Piper.

*A companion story to Be Careful, It's My Heart*
A novelette of approximately 13,000 words.

Like the other books in the Meet Cute Romance line, Once Upon A Setup is a novelette covering the first meeting of a romantic couple. Readers who fall in love with Myles and Piper will be happy to know that their story continues all the way to happily ever after in Just For This Moment, Book 4 in the Wishful Romance series. Both stories can be read and enjoyed on their own.

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
* Once Upon A Campfire
* Once Upon A Wedding

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). Once Upon A Campfire ties in with my Camp Firefly Falls novel, Second Chance Summer. And Once Upon A Wedding is a part of my Misfit Inn quartet.

30 some pages. No closure, leaves one hanging. Then offers another book with same characters to buy. I led ready the story but then it just ends.

Good story, way too short.

It's just a bit of perspective from a character you were given no info on in the original story, and about half of this book was copied from it.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Once Upon a Setup is a meet cute book about Myles and Piper and the historic Madrigal Theater and how they can save it. This book is the start of their story which will continue in book 4…Just For This Moment, in the Wishful Romance series.

Cute romance is a perfect title for these short reads that give you a nice sample of Ms. Nolan's style of writing. The Cute books don't have to be read in order unless you're reading the Wishful series, which I am. In that case, it serves as an epilogue to Be Careful it's My Heart and introduces more characters that will appear in future books. I like being able to tie the series and the Cute shorts together for a more enjoyable reading experience.

Is okay for what it is. With only about 40 pages it had a really disconnected feeling. I wanted more

Cute book. Nice addition to the Wishful series. Not quite a cliff hanger, but you definitely will need to read the next book in the series, if only to tie up loose ends. Sweet characters. I recommend this book and the others in Wishful series.
