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.
Being a teensy bit of a romantic, despite romance novels not always being my thing, I loved the idea of a mistaken occurrence causing a chain of events similar to the one found within the pages of Until It’s Right.
Haley had her heart ripped out when her long-time boyfriend left her for his ex-girlfriend, but her forays back into the dating game have been far from promising.
Kyle doesn’t have a lot of experience with relationships, but the one relationship he did have left him feeling insecure about whether or not he is good enough.
I absolutely loved this book! The author did a fabulous job at building up both the main characters’ personalities, but that of those around them. One of my biggest reading pet peeves is when a book focuses too much on the couple and not enough on those around them. Jamie Howard realistically spun each and every character with their own unique thread and, though everything wasn’t sunshine and roses throughout the book, that made the ending all the more satisfying.
Though the texting didn’t come into play quite as much as I thought it would, I think I prefer the direction the book took instead. Definitely recommend!
