Book Review ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

New to the Big Apple, the last thing Lexie Bloom needs is to fall for two guys at once. Especially when she canโ€™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 herโ€”via text message, no less. Little does she know, the two are the same manโ€ฆ

Matthew Hennessey is intrigued by his shy new client at the gym. But before he gets the chance to ask her out, he discovers sheโ€™s the one crafting the flirty texts sent to him by a woman who wouldnโ€™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 Matthewโ€™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.  Sheโ€™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 textโ€ฆโ€ฆ 

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. Heโ€™s interested in this lady, but not looking for long termโ€ฆโ€ฆ 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.
