Synopsis: 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.
This book reminded me a little of You’ve Got Mail, with an updated twist since this is via text not email.
Lexie has just moved to NYC, gotten a job as an assistant and living for herself – her dreams that her father’s death convinced her to shoot for. In the building of her new job is a gym with a gym membership as part of the company perks. It’s at this gym that she meets Matthew – adonis personal trainer who is WAY out of Lexie’s league – or so she thinks.
Matthew is wildly attracted to Lexie and is willing to set about teaching her that all guys aren’t untrustworthy. Except he’s the guy she’s text-flirting for her boss and he knows it but she doesn’t…
