I picked this up because I thought it was going to be about a couple who texts/sexts a lot. At least enough to make it in to the title. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more texting. There was some, but not as must as I wanted. That is probably me just being nit-picky though. And that is how I roll. While I am talking about the little things in this book that bothered me, I want to mention that the word “girl” was used 63 times. The heroine, Phebe is a ball busting project manager who is absolutely phenomenal at her job, yet she is consistently described as a girl. This grates my nerves. Can we refer to grown women as grown women?
Speaking of Phebe, her age is never explicitly mentioned, but I am pretty sure she is mid 20’s at the most and she is just days away from being C-suite level at her job. I am not saying this doesn’t happen, but it read as incredibly unrealistic. With my annoyance over the other little things in the book, this was just too much for me. Is it too much to ask to have made the heroine in her 30’s? I just get tired of reading about all these overachieving 24 year old professionals, men and women, in romance novels that are making over a million dollars a year.
The hero, Brody, is a bearded bartender with a heart of gold. He volunteers for the locak Boys & Girls Club but he is a little lost in his career path and what he wants.
Phebe encounters some work place harassment and Brady is dealing with some daddy issues. Phebe is really shitty to Brody. He is kind of shitty to her. They figure out they are being dumb and work their shit out. They work through their conflict and it seemed fine.
This book was kind of boring and took me almost a week to finish, but I was invested enough to finish it. The several small annoying things took away from my enjoyment.
