Sophie Kennedy doesn't like people judging her, especially a man she just happens to run into on the sidewalk one day simply because she grew up rich. Hoping she never runs into him again, she's less than thrilled when she finds she's ended up with his phone and he's ended up with hers. Meaning they'll have to encounter each other again.

Marc Garrett is a free-aid lawyer who happens to be late for a meeting with Sophie's father when he happens to run into her on a sidewalk outside his office. Thinking her sudden appearance is no coincidence he can't help but be utterly rude. Yet when he finds himself in possession of her phone, he can't help but want to get to know her even if she is a society princess.

The plot of this story was completely riveting that I didn't want to put it down until I was finished. The introduction of Marc and Sophie to one another at the beginning was brilliant and the mix-up of their phones just added thrill to the chase of Marc pursuing Sophie. The dialogue was clever in the way that even though Sophie belonged to a rich family, she certainly didn't act like a pampered princess as Marc assumed she was. The sex scenes were full of spice – enough to melt the pages – and I liked at the end how Marc wanted to add more heat to their relationship. It went to show how much trust the heroine has for the hero if they were to explore her sexual boundaries further. What I liked so much about Sophie was her faith in people and that she wouldn't let anyone down no matter what she had to do to see things right. While with Marc, I liked how he challenged Sophie enough that it got her to help him with the law suit he was working on.

Ms. Carr is one of my favourite authors, of which I've read most of her books and I've got to say that this series is one of her best. The four friends are great to read about whether they're the central focus of the story or a secondary character. And now with three of them having found happiness I can't wait until what I'm assuming will be the final book of this series to be released as I'm certain it will be worth reading just like the others.
