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 even an option. Of course, the last thing Clementine does before departure is 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 that easy. 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.


I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Ellie Cahill is yet another new-to-me author that I wouldn’t have found if not for NetGalley. It’s one of the reasons why I always prefer NetGalley over any other similar service. I’ve gotten lots of new authors whose books became one of my favorites. I wouldn’t have had the chance to be introduced to them if not for NG. Anyway, I picked this book because the cover was attractive. I love blue. Also, I liked the title. It’s something that could easily get stuck in my head.

The story was a sweet and light love story. The heroine was a good girl who got burned before and is now gaving trust issues. All she was after was to redeem herself in the eyes of her family. The hero was a great guy. Everybody loves a smart guy. Moreover, everbody loves a smart guy who wasn’t arrogant and was subtly sexy in ways. When the main characters met, the chemistry was obviously there. Of course, that set the stage for a bond to develop between them.

This book is not going to be the greatest book you’ve ever read this year. But if you are looking for a quick entertaining story that’s light and fun at the same time, you can’t go wrong with this. I may pick up more books from this author again in the future.
