Claiming Callie Tour! Reviews of Parts One & Two

Claiming Callie (part one) by Paige Rion 
(Now titled: Crediting Callie Part One)
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: September 13, 2014
Publisher: Self

Her love of Michael Kors might be her downfall.

Callie Cartwright is a college senior on the verge of graduating and getting the job of her dreams. But her illustrious shopping habit and expensive tastes backfire when her future employer gives her an ultimatum. She has less than six months to lower her debt or she’ll lose the job she’s worked so hard for.

His secret crush may be his undoing.

Dean Michaels has everything going for him. He’s a manager at the local coffee shop, a sophomore in college, star of the university basketball team, and don’t forget, gorgeous. The only thing he needs is the girl of his dreams to make his world complete. And he’s finally ready to go after her. The only problem: it’s his sister’s best friend he’s crushing on. And all she sees in him is the love for a brother.

But desperate times call for desperate measures.

When Callie concocts a crazy plan as a way to make quick money and pay down her debt, Dean’s feelings go into overdrive. It’s time to show her how he feels.

And the plan he proposes, just might be the one to finally catch the girl.

*Claiming Callie is part one of a series of four serial novellas and is approximately 28,000 words in length (about half the length of a full novel).*

This was a fun first part to the series. We got to know the characters and were introduced to the drama in their lives. Callie has no common sense. What in the world was she thinking? Lack of sense aside, she was pretty funny. Poor Dean. To have this crush on her for so long, and he's put, not just in the friend zone, but worse. .. In the brother zone. This was a fun first part to the serial novel. I think it's going to be quite entertaining.

He’s the man of her dreams. She just doesn’t know it yet.

Dean Michaels has nothing to lose, and after all these years, he’s finally hatched a plan to win the heart of his long-time crush Callie Cartwright.

Operation Get the Girl is on. For however long it takes, Callie will pretend to be his girlfriend in an effort to make his ex jealous and win back her affections. What she doesn’t know is that Dean only has eyes for her, and his plan is simply a ploy to win her heart.

But with Callie’s job hanging in the balance, her future uncertain, and the anniversary of her parents’ death looming, Dean’s scheme is one more thing adding to the chaos of her life.

Will his plan work? Or will it backfire, leaving him brokenhearted?

Claiming Callie part two by Paige Rion makes me love Dean even more. How could Callie not see this guy for the fictional man meat that he is? *wink* Seriously, he's what every girl wants to find. With that being said, I love their relationship. I love how close they are as friends. Whether they become more or not, they have something special. I think Callie is starting to warm up to Dean's ways, and I have to say, they'd be such a cute couple. They are too cute. I can't wait for part three!
