Review for Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS -
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 Clementine 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.
MY REVIEW -
I really enjoyed this, it was really cute! I love the introduction the 2 characters had, and I liked their connection. Clementine and Justin accidently switch phones at the airport, but luckily both live in Chicago and both of them are due back to Chicago in a week, so they make plans to meet up to switch the phones. They begin to build a relationship through some phone calls and texts before they meet up, and they both feel drawn to the other, but Clementine is from a very rich family and she's had some problems in the past of people taking advantage of her because of her family, so she gives Justin a fake last name. I was actually hoping the whole phone switch would of gone on a little longer than it did, but when they do meet, I really loved those scenes. Clementine is worried how Justin will reaction when he finds out that she lied about her last name, and she also does a couple other things that could cause some problems, and she has trust issues, so she is having a really hard time coming clean, so of course it is causing problems. Clementine and Justin's relationship was so sweet, and Justin is absolutely wonderful. There are some sexy times, but the author doesn't go into detail; the scenes are mainly heavy make-out sessions before it is implied they have sex, and I really liked them! It's nice to read a romance that doesn't go into tons of detail about the sex; the make-out sessions were just the right amount of spice for this book. I absolutely loved that Clementine is in love with books! That was a great detail, and made it virtually impossible for me not to love her! I did want more ending though; don't get me wrong the end was great, but I wanted to read more to see how these characters turn out; an epilogue would have been wonderful. A lot of the books I've been reading lately are in multiple POV's, so I found it refreshing for this book to only be in Clementine's POV. This book was a sweet romance, and had some cute and fun scenes, and I definitely look forward to reading more from Ellie Cahill!
