iBooks: http://apple.co/Synopsis: New to the Big Apple, the last thing Lexie Bloom needs is to fall for two guys at once. Especially when she can’t have either. One is her personal trainer, an Adonis way out of her league. The other? A Brit Lit professor her svelte boss insists she woo for her—via text message, no less. Little does she know, the two are the same man… Matthew Hennessey is intrigued by his shy new client at the gym. But before he gets the chance to ask her out, he discovers she’s the one crafting the flirty texts sent to him by a woman who wouldn’t know Lord Byron from Lady Gaga. To get to know her better, he allows Lexie to play her role. She may have given up on the idea of romance, but Matthew’s bound and determined to show her love is alive and well in New York City.
I was instantly pulled into this book from reading the blurb! The idea of this book was unlike anything I had read before so I was looking forward to seeing how a text built relationship would play out in print? It was a fun read, it shows the journey of Lexie, who has moved to NYC to hopefully become a playwright, but having to pay the bills takes on a job as an executive assistant. Her boss gives her the task of wooing a trainer she met in the office gym, the only problem is Lexie has met Matthew and is enthralled in him! Matthew for his part really likes Lexie and quite quickly catches on that she is the texted and not her boss so he decides to play along to get the girl! This book was a fun read and something I would say is the perfect travel companion book! Takes your mind of the journey for a while but won't make you ugly cry or think too much!!
Jolyse Barnett is a country girl living her happily-ever-after in suburbia with her real-life, hunky hero, two offspring aptly nicknamed Thing One and Thing Two, and a cuddly cat that sleeps 23-7. When she’s not tapping away at the keyboard or with her nose in a book, Jolyse can usually be found in her backyard dreaming about tropical escapes.
