Can you fall in ♥ with someone you’ve never met?
Summer is nearly over and Keeley is about to start her senior year when disaster strikes: she picks up the wrong cell phone by mistake. 😞 Just her luck that it belongs to Talon, a totally arrogant jock 🏈 who’s just left for football camp—with herphone. Keeley doesn’t know him, but they’ll need to rely on each other to forward their messages for an entire week.
Talon is so full of himself, but Keeley quickly discovers he’s funny, too—at least his texts are. 😅 And he listens to Keeley—which is more than anyone else does. Texting Talon, she can be more than just the quiet twin sister of a popular boy. Texting Talon, she can be the outgoing person she’s always wanted to be. Soon the two are falling for each other, hard.
But when true identities are revealed and secrets are exposed, will Keeley’s feelings stay the same?
I am enjoying this book so far. The concept of two people who meet by picking up the wrong phones is really intriguing, and I am interested to see how Keeley and Talon’s relationship will play out. This is a pretty short and quick book, so I will probably have it finished pretty soon.
Fate had a twisted sense of humour. Either that or it hated her, because there was no way she should have been paired with a twin like this.
“Never mind,” she said when the silence grew awkward.
“No, it’s okay. I had to think about it for a second.”
“I was just curious,” she rushed to explain.
“I just … I guess I’ve never thought of it before.”
“Because you can’t imagine falling in love?” The question popped out of nowhere.
“No, because I can’t imagine a girl turning me down.”
