Clementine Daly knows she’s the black sheep. Her wealthy, powerful family has watched her very closely since she almostgot 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.
So I must confess, I picked up this book because of the title, I kind of love the song by the same name, it always gets me super amped. But once I was sold on the title, I read the synopsis and I was intrigued. I liked the whole idea that two people could get to know each other via text message. I mean I realize it’s similar to meeting someone online, but for me this seemed more personal. I mean most people these days have their whole lives on their phones, and this was basically trusting a complete stranger with access.
I really loved the interaction of Clementine and Justin while they were communicating by text (and the occasional phone call). They were really kind of cute, it was kind of flirty at first, and then getting to know each other, becoming interested in one another, and finally deciding to meet in person for more than just a phone exchange. When they had their first meeting together I was so happy that the chemistry they had on the phone managed to carry into real life.
I liked Clementine, she was interesting to me, kind of unique. While she was definitely an adult, she almost has kind of an innocent naiveté to her. She’s been kind of hovered over her whole life, she comes from a prominent family, with more money they they could even need. She made one mistake in the eyes of her family, and it changed the whole way she lived her life. She sent pictures to a boy she was dating a trusted, and it ended with a big payout to keep him quiet, and the way her family treats her, like it is 100% her fault and not the jack-weasel who basically targeted her and blackmailed her. She has no social media presence, she keeps everyone on her phone listed under code names, it’s sad how she kind of is forced to live her life, even though she is an adult. But she a secret persona, she’s a book blogger and has social media as the book blogger. It’s her big passion, and obviously it’s one that I can totally identify with. I was really happy that through the course of the book she evolved and really came into her own and learned that she had to follow her dreams.
Now Justin is just a good guy. I liked him a lot. He was just the right amount of normal for Clementine, and better than that he was so open to letting her into his world without question. He encouraged her when it came to figuring out what she wanted to do with her life. He is just one of those guys that you would want to bring home to mom and dad, just solid all around guy. Yes of course there was some conflict towards the end of the book, and I was little perturbed with Justin, but I understood where he was coming from, and I honestly really liked the way they interacted.
I liked the characters, I loved the chemistry, they had some seriously hot interactions. I was totally invested in these two, and more than that I really enjoyed the writers style of writing. I would easily recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more of this author in the future.
