Text Me, Maybeby Jolyse Barnett Publication Date: August 8, 2016 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Lovestruck, Romance
Lexie has moved to New York to pursue her dream to become a playwright and just started working as an assistant in a large company. Matthew works at the company’s gym and is her assigned trainer. There’s “insta-lust” from both sides, but Lexie has been cheated on before and came to the big city to work hard on her goals. She is reluctant to trust any man despite her feelings. Add to that the fact that her boss enlists her to work an angle and get her a date with a man she recently met and who has text her poetry quotes, which she admittedly knows little about. Lexie finds herself getting to know the hunk from the gym and the romantic soul on the other side of the phone, but what will happen when she discovers they’re both the same guy?
Matthew and Lexie have major flaws. They both have suffered big losses in their lives and trust is something difficult for them and as he weaves a web of deception in order to find out more about her, he’s risking a future together.
This book is a sweet, modern, lose take on the French classic Cyrano de Bergerac. In this case the girl is playing Cyrano to get her boss a date with the guy, but he learns of the deception early in the game and uses it to his advantage to try to get the elusive Lexie. It’s nicely written, quickly developed and, to top it all, loaded with beautiful, romantic quotes that bring a special quality to the story. If you’re looking for a fast read that will leave a sugary taste and restore your faith in romantic love, pick this one up.
