Check out my thoughts on this super cute romance, and get a chance to win an exciting giveaway as well! 😀
Enjoy your visit lovelies 😀
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.
When you have such a cute blurb, you just know that you need to pick this one up – and it was such a treat to read this cute little romance of misunderstandings.
Lexie Bloom is new to the Big Apple, and though she has aspirations of becoming a writer, till she can make a break, she has started working as an Executive Assistant in an MNC. Now she knows that assistants nothing more than gofers for their bosses, she is still shocked when her boss asks her to woo a man using her literature background. So accepting the order with apprehensions, she sallies forth and gets right on her assignment.
The man though is none other than the trainer at their company gym – Mathew Hennessey, a man who Lexie was attracted to from the FIRST meet. Really! But she doesn’t really know that!
Now, Mathew is a Brit Lit Professor as well as a trainer and is enchanted by Lexie as well and that enchantment just freaking blooms the more he gets to know her!
Now, Lexie is a very cautious person, but since she is wooing a guy over text messages and that guy doesn’t even know who she actually is, she ends up opening to him, but the kicker actually is that Mathew knows that she is the one texting him, so he is also more open to talking to her over texts.
Now, this romance had all the makings of being actually a very cute romance, and it was really – I adored the kind of soulful connection that Mathew and Lexie seemed to have with each other and it was absolutely wonderful to read the kind of mistakes that they could have made, but didn’t cause logical minds prevailed 😉
But I had one issue with the book – it was written in a way that seemed like I had missed that there was a book where these characters were already introduced and their background stories already told and that wasn’t actually true – for I checked. The plot made so many references to their past and their reasons for their reticence. And that made it a bit of irritant, for the author went about giving references that I KNEW weren’t actually explained in the book, though to be fair, she did go on to explain at least part of it towards the end of the book – but in my opinion it would have gone a bit better if these pertinent facts were explained at the start, even if it were a part of the internal monologue of the characters!
Still, this was a book I could have curled up with in the bed late at night (which I did!), and end up with a warm feeling, because too much drama, even in fiction can be draining after a hard day!
