ARC Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

Title: Call Me, Maybe

Author: Ellie Cahill

Synopsis:

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.

***MY REVIEW***

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

5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely adored When Joss Met Matt earlier this year and since then have been craving another book by this author, so obviously I jumped at the chance to read an ARC of this book when it was made available for request. And I gotta say this book was everything I wanted it to be.

Clementine and Justin's story was really fun romance. Also, this book did a thing that few romances succeed at doing, which was make me love the heroine more than the hero. Clementine is one of those characters that I feel many readers will be able to relate to with her not knowing what exactly she wants to do with her life now that she is out college and with how frustrated she was by her situation and all the expectations put on her by her family. But while I did love Clementine a ton that doesn't mean that there weren't things she did that made me really mad at her. The fact that she lied to Justin about who she really was as long as she did was a really big no-no. If she would have just told him when they started to see each other, she would have saved herself a lot of heartache towards the end of the book.

And while I didn't love Justin as much as Clementine, he was still a pretty great, swoon-worthy romance hero. Although, his hang-ups about serious relationships did annoy me. A parent's infidelity leading to the character being against series relationships is one of my least favorite tropes in romances, but luckily Justin didn't let this hinder his relationship with Clementine too much and the author delivered a pretty satisfying and realistic HEA in the end.

Overall, I really loved this book. I highly recommend it. It's the perfect read for anyone who loves super sweet contemporary romances.
