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.

Alexis says…

After getting out of a long-term relationship and wanting to meet a new guy, Haley goes out with a girlfriend and ends up meeting a guy and exchanging numbers. Unbeknownst to her, with all the loud music she doesn’t get the correct number.  When she decides to text the new guy she realizes it’s not him but strikes up a “texting relationship” with a guy she dubs Clark.

At the same time, she starts a new job and becomes friends with Kyle, the resident IT guy.  Kyle is definitely a bit of a nerd but I swear…I ate it up. He has the glasses, he’s a bit self-conscious and OyMG, he’s just so wonderful.  He is the kind of guy that all women should want in their lives. I think nerd is the new alpha-I will be the first person to start the trend.

Of course this book is all about coincidence or maybe it’s all about fate. I mean, I am a huge believer in fate, how else would a wrong number end up bringing her and Kyle closer?

The budding relationship between Hayley and Kyle will definitely bring a huge smile to your face as well as make your heart soar.  I think both of them are needy in certain aspects of their lives and these two need each other to mend their own broken pieces.  Plus, they both are so likeable that you will definitely be rooting for them to just get it on, lol!!!

“If souls operate on wavelengths, then I’m a hundred percent certain that Haley and I are on the exact same frequency.”

Kyle eventually puts two and two together that Haley is the mystery girl that he has been texting with and has to live the guilt and doesn’t know how to break it to her along with falling for her.  Or breaking her heart.

But as we all know, secrets don’t stay secrets for ever and eventually the truth is found out. Trust me, I won’t let you know how it ends-that’s all on you.

As much as I really enjoyed this one, I didn’t particularly care for Hayley’s family drama. I don’t really think that it was needed and didn’t really add anything to the story.  Going in, I had no idea that this was actually part of a series (obviously I need to do my homework) but trust me when I say, this can definitely be read as a standalone.

If you are looking for some well-written, swoonworthy New Adult then this will definitely hit the spot!
