Description from Publisher:
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.

My Musings:
This book was such a wonderful read!! I absolutely loved Kyle! He was adorable and sexy and sweet... And he was a nerd.

I suppose I may have some bias here as he is exactly my "type" and there were more than a few similarities between him and my husband. ;) But I so very much enjoyed his character and his perspective that I am a bit sad the book is over.

From the first few pages, I fell into this book, even before Kyle is introduced. Haley was also a very real and believable character and I liked her from the beginning. I was even disappointed when she got Bryce's number wrong, until we see "Clark's" adorable snarkiness.

I got so very sucked into their romance that I stayed up way too late and finished this in one sitting. It was funny, touching, and well-written. The struggles Haley and Kyle experienced both individually and together were realistic and I couldn't not root for them throughout.

The side characters were also very likable and I am excited to read more (I hadn't realized until after I read this that there was already a book about Sloane and Luke). Though I will miss Kyle.
My Source: I received a digital ARC from St. Martin's Press through NetGalley.com for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way affected my review. (This one would be worth every penny - go get it!)
