I Am Delilah

About the book: Although Delilah works in New York, she’s a small-town girl and eager to finish her job as a nanny and return to Big Fork, Montana where she’ll marry her high-school sweetheart. When she ends up the focus of a Hollywood stunt centered around her being the Oscar date of Hollywood heartthrob Sam Hendricks, life as she knows it becomes a thing of the past. Delilah promptly refuses him, only to find that it isn’t so easy to step out of the limelight once you’ve ended up in the middle of the public eye. 

Sam Hendricks is not used to taking no for an answer, and when his rejection become a leading story, he determines to do whatever it takes to turn the tide of public opinion back in his favor. Again and again Delilah refuses him until she proposes an offer—if he’ll spend two weeks on her family’s dairy farm, she’ll be his date to the Oscars. In no way is this a fair trade, but Sam feels he has no choice and therefore agrees to her proposal—they both agree no one will ever know. 

Unfortunately for them both, there are plans other than their own at play, and when everything goes wrong they are faced with another fallout, bigger than the first.

My review: This book has a cute premise. I liked the plot line with Sam wanting to ask a regular girl to go to with him to the Oscar's. I really liked it when the girl stood up to him and told him no way would she go and no way would she wear the dress he wanted her to, no matter who designed it!

I really liked Delilah, she's a small town girl from Montana, working as a nanny in New York City, trying to earn a little extra money before marrying the love of her life. I loved how when she was blindsided in Central Park by Sam, she didn't know what to do, but eventually she comes up with a great plan: show Sam how normal people live and what better way to do it than to have him work on her parent's dairy farm! 

I will admit that for most of the book I didn't like Sam at all. He's really self-centered. It seemed like all he did was whine and I didn't like the way he treated anyone around him, especially his assistant Cody. I did like that he was able to change some by the end of the book. 

And I really liked that Delilah's happily ever after came, regardless of what Sam did or didn't do. This was a cute book that I enjoyed reading!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
