Haley Mitchell is tired of moping. With her broken heart repaired with a thick layer of duct tape, she’s ready to put her ex behind her and move on. After a chance encounter in a club, she’s convinced she’s met Mr. Perfect. But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number, the stranger on the other end of her texts becomes her confidant.
Kyle Lawson has always had more luck with computers than women. So when the new temp, Haley, arrives, he has the misfortune of falling for her, only to land firmly in the friend zone. But when he learns the mysterious woman he’s been texting is actually Haley, he keeps the entire thing a secret.
As things move straight from platonic to decidedly hot, Kyle must come clean about his secret texting identity and risk losing the woman he’s fallen in love with.
I usually like my books raw, dirty, gritty…you get the idea. Yet, every once in a while, I need something that cleanses my palette. Something to bring a little bit of light back into my world. I’m so happy to say that this book did that for me. This is my first read from Jamie Howard and I truly enjoyed it.
The story is told in dual POV, which I really like. I think it helped to build both Haley and Kyle’s character. To be able to experience the journey from both of their views.
The star of the story for me is Kyle. He’s just absolutely adorable in the geekiest way. From the moment he was introduce to Haley, I was hooked. He’s dorky, funny, awkward and charismatic.
“I’ve always been pretty decent at the bedroom games, probably because I spend more time researching the best way tot get women off than I’d like to admit, but there’s something about Haley that makes me feel like a sex god.”
See! Dorky and funny! The entire time I was smiling at him or for him. I like that he was awkward yet appealing. The building romantic relationship between them was extremely slow. Normally, that would bother me. I’m not talking about instal-love. That I normally do have a problem with. I just like to see action early on. However, this slow pace actually worked. It played to his awkwardness and to both of their insecurities. It gives you desire to just want to root for them, building up emotions in you.
Overall, I thought this book was a super cute, sweet and funny book. It did what exactly what I wanted it to do. I look forward to seeing more work from Jamie.
