Book Review 👩🏻‍💻

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.


In Text Me, Maybe by Jolyse Barnett, our heroine, Lexie has just moved and started her new life and job in NYC.  She’s keen ( within reason) do whatever it takes to keep it. So when her boss asks her to send texts for her a to British Lit Professor her boss has her eye on, Lexie apprehensively responds to his first text…… 

But her mind and body are distracted by her gym trainer Matthew, he is fun and flirty and a body of a god. As the friendship over the texts gets stronger, so does her feelings for Matthew, but Lexie has been hurt before, so she constantly pulls back from her feelings towards Matthew. 

So who will Lexie choose ? The English Lit professor with a heart for poetry and an ear to talk too, or Matthew, the fun, passionate and intense guy ? 

Matthew sees a curvy woman at the gym struggling with the gym equipment, and before he knows it, he has a new trainee on his books. He’s interested in this lady, but not looking for long term…… Not yet anyway! 

As he finds himself falling for Lexie, he discovers himself along the way, no longer wanting shallow one night stands, he aims to make Lexie his. But meddling friends, bosses and family put a few spokes in their wheels. 

And when a misunderstanding, (or rather Matthew not manning up soon enough) is blown all out of proportion, what will the couple do ? 

It was a fun afternoon read.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src=""
