Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

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 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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

This book started out strong with Clementine and Justin talking and texting with each others phones. I thought the dialogue between them was super cute and you could feel the attraction even though they had yet to spend time together in person. It was shaping up to be a really great read and I was in my happy place.

As I flipped each page I was anxious for the two of them to meet and when they finally did it was a little anti- climatic for me. The chemistry and "cuteness" that I loved about their phone conversations and texts seemed to disappear along with a bit of their personalities. Justin became a little boring and Clementine became a little annoying. I just couldn't relate to her and her second guessing and questioning everything. I preferred the anonymous flirting, texting and sexting over what actually occurred in the bedroom.

I didn't dislike the book but I think it lost some of its steam once the two of them met. There really wasn't anything that made it particularly memorable. It was a quick read and it provided me with a couple hours of what I like to do best. This was the second book by Ellie Cahill for me and although I preferred When Joss Met Matt, it certainly won't be my last.
