Textrovert by Lindsey Summers is a quick read that is absolutely adorable. I really enjoyed the concept of switching phones by mistake and the super sweet main character. However, I feel as though the book was lacking in certain areas, and it would have been better if it was more developed. I still do recommend it if you are looking for a quick and easy read this summer.Title: Textrovert

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 her phone. 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?

Review: Textrovert by Lindsey Summers
This book’s concept is one that I knew would be adorable from the start. The main character loses her phone and ends up taking someone else’s by mistake, but she can’t get her own back for another week. It just so happens that the person with her phone is a football player and a massive flirt. I really enjoyed reading the texts between Talon and Keeley, since they are both so different from each other. Their easy conversations are hilarious, and the reader can really feel Talon getting on Keeley’s nerves. This is a super short and sweet book that has just the right mix of humour and drama.
❀ Selfless Character
I really enjoyed Keeley’s character in Textrovert. She is such a selfless person and always there to help out her football-playing brother, Zach. I also found her to be relatable, not only because of her misplaced phone incident, but also because she is struggling with decisions about college and drama with her friends. Keeley is a supportive twin and friend and just seems like such a lovely person.
❀ Too Short
Because Textrovert is such a short book, I feel like there was a lot that could have been developed a bit more. It’s hard to describe without spoiling anything, but while there are some intense plot twists in the story, they seem to come out of nowhere, and the effect isn’t as strong. There really is a lot of potential to this story, it just would have been so much better if there was a bit more to it and the plot was more developed.
❀ Quick and Cute
Textrovert by Lindsey Summers is a quick and cute read about two people who swap phones by mistake. The main character is sweet, supportive, and relatable. While I still enjoyed the book, it would have been even better if there was more development. I would still recommend it though, if you are a fan of the online relationship idea.
Book Quotes: Textrovert by Lindsey Summers
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.”
