From the outside looking in, socialite Lexi North’s life looks decadently perfect, right down to her diamond-dusted nails. But you know what they say about glass houses… When one night goes horribly wrong—with the whole world watching—she’s challenged to swap lives with the salty, albeit gorgeous, man she rear-ends with her car.

For mechanic Evan Bailey, life is definitely not a party. There’s no “daddy’s credit card” for fixing up his family’s auto shop, raising his too-precocious-for-anyone’s-good niece, and getting his accounts from deep in the red to black. Which is precisely when opportunity—and celebutante Lexi North—smashes into his life.

But what should have been an easy bet gets a whole lot harder with the inexplicably hot chemistry between them. Now the only way for either of them to get what they want is to go for broke…

“This story is a rom-com that will have you laughing, tearing up, and feeling all warm and fuzzy. A definite worthwhile read!” –Abby Always Reads

“I really enjoyed this book. I finished it one day because I just wanted to keep reading it. I loved the character development of Lexi and feel like this is an important lesson we all can learn from.” –Bek Loves to Read

“This is a sweet story about merging two very different worlds, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested in a fun, adorable, enemies-to-lovers story!” –Rhyann Reads

This book was a lovely and fairly lighthearted read. It felt like cozying up with my favorite romcom where you expect the twists and turns, but it is fun to see them play out nonetheless. I like that Lexi’s character is more than just a one dimensional party girl and we get to understand why she acts out.” – What’s a Little Smut Between Friends?

“I devoured every bit of this... this book gave me the exact vibes I've been looking for since reading It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey. And dare I say... THIS WAS BETTER!” –Read with Mimi

“a quick, easy to read, slightly steamy book about identity, family, and money. This was really fun to read and I really enjoyed reading it” –Waffel Writer

“I read this in one day, I just couldn't put it down! This book has lots of witty banter that had me giggling many times.” – Rinaroo Reads

“I ADORED IT, I had such a good time reading it. i was giggling 🤭 then i was crying because let’s be honest evan doesn’t really deserve lexi. but honestly this just hit a spot that i didn’t know existed! the whole dumb little rich girl and then her becoming down to earth was LOVELY to see! the story didn’t go how i thought it would but it went even better” –Hur Reads

“I enjoyed this book. The characters were well thought out and the plot was paced in a way that made sense. I would recommend this book to others and would enjoy reading other novels by this author.” –Amusing Muses

Duvall does an excellent job at developing the characters and providing them with more depth as the story goes on. She has created characters that are imperfect in all the ways that real people are, and it was such a pleasure to read. The teasing and the banter and the overall playfulness of the dialogue is such fun to read and this book is exactly what I needed for my summer reading list.” –Lazy Baby Library

“I really enjoyed the story. Lexi and Evan were a fun couple, and I was really rooting for them by the end.” –St. Pete Shush
