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.

This story turned out to be not quite what I was expecting – and that was a nice surprise! There are basic storylines that show up frequently so when I read the summary about a celebrity having to spend some time in the “real world” with a small-town girl on her Montana farm, I thought I had a pretty good idea where the story would be going. As I read, I kept wondering how things were going to get to the point I expected and still leave me satisfied with how it all worked out, and I was pleasantly surprised when they went a different direction.
This was a sweet story about finding out what is most important in life and also about staying true to yourself and your standards. It wasn’t so much of a romance necessarily. I was glad that Sam’s character grew on me by the end — he wasn’t very likable at the beginning. I loved Delilah and her spunk. Really enjoyed it!
