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 her phone. 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.
What I Thought…
• I curled up with Call Me, Maybe on a blustery snow day and it kept me on my couch reading until I was finished. Call Me, Maybe is a fast read and it was pretty cute.
• Clementine and Justin go through a phone mix up at the airport and end up with each others phones until they return home. I thought this was a real cute way for them to meet, and led to some awkward moments.
• Clementine’s family is super wealthy and this causes her to not tell the truth about who she is, while part of me understands why, the other part of me doesn’t understand because unless you’re into the rich and famous/sociolite stuff, who pays attention to who has money where you live? But that could just be me. I completely understand not wanting to say that you have gobs of money though, it’s hard to tell who likes you for you rather than your money.
• Clementine’s family is overbearing towards Clementine and it drove me crazy. Yes, she made a mistake, but it’s over and done with so, move on!
• There aren’t too many secondary characters in this one, but I did like Clementine’s neighbor/friend and Justin’s roommate.
• While reading Call Me, Maybe was more of a three star read, but the ending was so excellent I had to bump it up.
Overall if you are into cute contemporary romances definitely give this one a shot!
