“Ellie Cahill is definitely one to watch!” raves bestselling author Cora Carmack, and this steamy, upbeat modern romance about connecting in all the best ways proves it once again.
Clementine Daly knows she’s the black sheep. Her wealthy, powerful family has watched her very closely since she almost got caught in an embarrassing scandal a few years ago. So when Clementine’s sent on a mission to live up to the Daly name, politely declining isn’t an option. Of course, the last thing she does before boarding the plane is to grab a stranger’s phone by mistake—leaving the hunky journalist with herphone. Soon his sexy voice is on the line, but he doesn’t know her real name, or her famous pedigree—which is just the way Clementine likes it.
Despite all the hassles, Justin Mueller is intrigued to realize that the beautiful brown-eyed girl he met at the airport is suddenly at his fingertips. They agree to exchange phones when they’re both back in town, but after a week of flirty texts and wonderfully intimate conversations, Justin doesn’t want to let her go. The only problem? It turns out that Clemetine has been lying to him about, well, everything. Except for the one thing two people can’t fake, the only thing that matters: The heat between them is for real.
Clementine comes from a very rich and prominent family. In the past, she narrowly escaped a scandal, and is now banned from social media by her family. She follows these new rules, except in the case of her book blog, which she runs under a fake name.
After a chance encounter in an airport, she ends up with a stranger’s phone, and even though she knows there isn’t anything compromising on it, she becomes a little anxious over it. The person now in control of her phone just happens to be the hot guy she tripped over at the airport, and he just happens to be a journalist. Because of what happened in her past, she is very wary of trusting this new guy.
They spend most of the week exchanging texts and calls, but it felt, to me, like they didn’t really communicate all that much. And then when the week was over and they met face to face, it was almost a full blown relationship. I was hoping for more of them getting to know each other while they were apart.
Overall, I liked this book, but it didn’t really blow me away like I was hoping it would. The actual romance in the book seemed to happen way too quickly, probably a case of too short a book, not enough story time. Towards the end, everything seemed to go at super speed. The good thing about this story was that I actually really liked both main characters, and I found their stories interesting.
