From the author of Seoulmates comes a story of mistaken identities, the summer of a lifetime, and a love to risk everything for.

When Elijah Ri arrives in New York City for an internship at his father’s massive tech company, Haneul Corporation, he expects the royal treatment that comes with being the future CEO—even if that’s the last thing he wants. But instead, he finds himself shuffled into a group of overworked, unpaid interns, all sharing a shoebox apartment for the summer.

When Jessica Lee arrives in New York City, she’s eager to make the most of her internship at Haneul Corporation, even if she’s at the bottom of the corporate ladder. But she’s shocked to be introduced as the new executive-in-training intern with a gorgeous brownstone all to herself.

It doesn’t take long for Elijah and Jessica to discover the source of the they share the same Korean name. But they decide to stay switched—so Elijah can have a relaxing summer away from his controlling dad while Jessica can make the connections she desperately needs for college recommendations.

As Elijah and Jessica work together to keep up the charade, a spark develops between them. Can they avoid discovery—and total disaster—with their feelings and futures on the line?


I received The Name Drop in return for an honest review from the publisher Inkyard Press. 

Elijah has it all the rich family, the bright future, he's never had to work for anything in his life and this summer is no expectation as he is trained to step into his fathers shoes. Which is the last thing that Elijah wants. Jessica has worked hard for everything and when she get's an internship for her fathers company she's hoping it will give her the bump she needs to further her future. Due to a mistaken identity Elijah and Jessica end up in each others roles what will happen when they figure out the mistake? 

I loved both Jessica and Elijah right form the start they are just characters I really felt like I could connect with. I really love stories where we are given both pov because Elijah's story was just as important as Jessica's. I love the chemistry between the pair while they come from different worlds they found common ground to bond on it was very sweet. 

The Name Drop is a lovely story it captured my attention right from the start and I wasn't able to put it down till the last page. I ended up devouring it in just one afternoon because I was so invested in the characters and the story. I ended up in a little book hangover because I didn't want it to end I wasn't ready to say goodbye just yet to the pair. 

This is my first book by the author but I'm obsessed I loved every moment of The Name Drop. The characters are easy to connect with I just loved them all even the side characters. The author has a beautiful way of creating a captivating story that captures the heart. I loved every moment of The Name Drop and can't wait to read more from the author. One of my favorite books of 2023 it was just perfectly done.
