Synopsis from Good Reads:

From Teagan Hunter, author of the Here’s To series, comes a fun, witty STANDALONE romcom!

A wrong number is supposed to be just that–a wrong number.

Delete. Done.

Do not continue to text. Do not flirt.

A wrong number shouldn’t be the first person on your mind in the morning, or the last at night…and you’re definitely not supposed to talk them into buying a baby goat.

Because that would be weird.

When Zach Hastings and I get into a wrong-number mix-up, we don’t follow the rules. We keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction.

I’m not looking for love, and Zach definitely had the wrong number.

But maybe…

Maybe he’s the right guy.

So I know what you’re thinking. The innuendo book title. The cover picture. You must have stumbled upon the wrong blog. This could not be a “Stephanie” book, right? Well, while I do hate that cover, I loved this book! I read it in one evening (staying up way past my bedtime) because I could not put it down.

This book was so funny! With a title like Let’s Get Textual you know it either has to be funny or stupid and I’m so glad it was the former. The banter between Delia and Zach had me smiling throughout the whole book. Yes, there was some definite innuendo – and a couple of scenes that were a little more than I generally appreciate reading about – but for the most part, their oddball sense of humor really resonated with me.

I’m a sucker for the mystery texter/pen-pal trope and I loved it here. Delia and Zach text for quite awhile before they decide to meet and even after they begin a relationship the texting is still a large part of the book. I loved how their relationship progressed and shipped them pretty hard. I didn’t love the requisite Big Misunderstanding toward the end of the book, though.  I thought the situation itself was kind of stupid, but also Delia did not handle it well At All. It seemed a little out of character for her because with Zach she was painfully honest all the rest of the time.

Overall, I really enjoyed Let’s Get Textual. I loved the main characters (and their goat) and could not get enough of their fun banter. This is definitely a book I’m glad I didn’t judge by it’s cover.

Overall Rating (out of 5): 4 Stars
