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 fol

Sandi I would read that. I like redemption stories, when well done. I wouldn't want him to have an easy and painless story.

My thoughts in a nutshell
This was fun until the third quarter of the book then it became a dull, stereotypical romance that everybody knows.

The story is about…
Skip over this point if you don't like the sneak peek.
Delia gets a text from an unknown number; she thinks it is her brother's new phone number, but no it is Zach's number. Zach is a hot stranger. They've started to text each other and then everything becomes complicated.

What impressed me the most 😊

Our lips lock, and we’re falling. Thud.

I had SO much fun reading this book. I sat there with a cheesy smile and some giggles may or may not have escaped. Delia and Zach were adorable together. Their texting banter had me rolling and their in person chemistry was sizzling. The intimacy was strong and well done but it wasn’t overly explicit, which turned out to be a credit to the story. The plot isn’t all that intricate which was ok because it allowed for the focus to be on the development o

This was a fun and different read.
Be aware, a good portion of this book is written in text message form.
The two MC's meet via text and they continue to text a lot.

I mean, it's their "meet-cute".
You should expect this format of writing.
But, if that bothers you... then this book might not be your thing.
It doesn't bother me at all and I actually really enjoyed reading something different like this.

I loved this book from beginning to end. There were so many lol moments for me while reading this book. I adored Zach and his HOT nerdy self. Delia was funny and sweet. These two were absolutely perfect for each other. This book is not full of angst and drama, just enough. It’s not full of crazy exes showing up. Delia’s ex is in it and he is the nicest guy. I would love to read a book about Caleb getting his hea. And Zoe, Delia’s roommate is the type of bff that every girl needs. I’d love a book ...more

“If you think you’re going to Slytherin to my bed with those on, you’re wrong. I only allow full-fledged Hufflepuffs in there.”

This review is long overdue, and frankly, it's been long enough since I've read it that I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but I had to type up something before continuing with the series. Delia and Zach are a freaking riot — I seriously laughed out loud so many times, and even while shuffling through my highlights to pick a quote for this review, I was giggling

UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT!

I am so bored...

DNF at 30%



I guess you know that the heroine, Delia, gets a text to her phone from a wrong number one day and then, they start texting and talking regularly, seeing they enjoy each other's company over the phone.

And by texting, what I mean is "Texting texting and texting for millions of pages about some random silly stuff." And they sometimes make stupid jokes to each other. It's never fun or funny for me.

I enjoyed this romcom and that’s saying a lot because I don’t usually read many of them. I don’t know I feel like I’m really picky with them but I’m glad to say with this one I like quite a lot.

The first thing that caught my attention was the blurb I love the whole concept of the MC meeting by text. That’s how this book begins the h getting a wrong text from the H they both think they are texting other people. But even when they realize they’re strangers they can’t seem to stop.

I liked this book so much! It was so cute and perfect. There are a lot of reasons why this book was a perfect fit for me. But one in particular, was that goat! I mean, come on! How could I resist that lovely goat? I'm so used to cats and dogs... that reading about a baby goat melted my heart.

I want to read books about epic loves; I don't want to read about two people who will inevitably break up.

Because these two will.

Why? They lack that zing. She describes him as "comfortable, safe and warm". And those adjectives aren't bad per se, but they are NOT the words you use to describe someone you are falling for.

50% of this entire book was a series of boring texts. Not thrilling or banterous or rife with sexual tension. Just boring. Then when we finally get dialogue, it's very teenish a

I'm a sucker for hot covers and sometimes I regret that superficial impulse, but unfortunately, I do judge a book by its cover in at least 50% of the situations. So, this def made me want to check it out.

I loved it from the first chapter until ‘The End’. I’ll definitely reread this book! I bought a paperback of this novel and I hope to have it signed one day.

I have found a new go-to author for my romcom needs!

Surprisingly, this book really spoke to me. I've made quite a few friends through the 'wrong number' scenario and they were just as fun to experience as this book was to read. It took no time at all for Zach and Delia to be texting each other like old friends. By the time these two met, I felt that they were on another level and I loved that the author played it out just like that. There was no wasted time waiting for them to get to know each

SPECTACULAR! Seriously, just get TF outta here with this book! Let’s Get Textual is definitely one of the BEST romcoms I’ve ever read. Hands down. I don’t think there was a single moment where I wasn’t snort-laughing, all-out giggling, or just battling the flurry of butterflies in my stomach. The banter, the chemistry, the modernity of it was just perfect. And don’t even get me started with the text exchanges between Zach and Delia! They were legit ON POINT.

This was an awesome book. I've been reading some heavier stuff lately and just wanted something completely different, so thought I'd give this a go. It's so good! Witty, hilarious, the banter was amazing and I loved the attraction between these characters.

Now don't get me wrong, I loved this book, but don't pick it up and be expecting some literary classic. It's fluff. Like, 100%, take you out of your life, ignore your problems, kind of fluff. I personally believe that there's a time and place

**I received an advanced reader's copy in exchange for an honest review.**

I've been in a reading slump with NA and contemporary romance books for a little while now. The books I have picked up were not the worst books I've read, but they were not satisfying. They left me rather dissappointed because I expected so much more of them. I also noticed that I have become a really picky reader in 2017. I rarely give out 5 star ratings anymore, a few books were 4.5

I kind of expected this one to be lame... and it was, yet it was fun and perfect for my brain that seems to be living in total chaos at this point in time.

This is a wrong number turned romance. I've actually had a wrong number turned into a friendship sort of thing so I could kind of relate a little bit. Zach texts Delia by mistake and once they figure it out, they continue to text and start flirting a bit. Zach is nerdy, funny, and cocky... and Delia is sarcastic to the bone! I expected this t

Delia and Zach meet due to a wrong-number situation and they hit it off over the phone, talking briefly but sharing plenty of playfulness and banter in the back-and-forth text exchanges they just can’t seem to quit once they’ve started. As expected, their sizzling phone connection eventually translates to real-life friendship and love for these two young twenty-somethings.

Delia and Zach were cute and sweetsie together, with only a little final act drama to throw a temporary spanner in the

YES! I loved Let’s Get Textual! It was such a refreshing read, I just flew through the book and couldn’t stop smiling. We have a funny and authentic heroine, Delia, as well as a (kind of) nerdy, sexy hero, Zach:

Delia and Zach are so much fun! Their text banter is hysterical. The story is sweet - a meet cute through a text sent to the wrong number leads to flirty texting, a date and so much more. There is a baby goat, sassy roommates and meddling stepbrothers! Seriously, this book has just about everything.

This book was adorable. An easy, flirty read.

But ... *rant attack* ... why is it that characters in romance novels are always milliobillionares with tons of free time on their hands? Is everyone making money without me?!?! I get this is the romance genre - home of unrealistic expectations since 1439/1440, but do we all have to be non-Profit company owning Christian Grey gym monkeys to be considered attractive enough to have a story?

“Releasing me, he backs up and strips off his shirt then shucks his jeans.

I burst into laughter.

“If you think you’re going to Slytherin to my bed with those on, you’re wrong. I only allow full-fledged Hufflepuffs in there.”

Zach glances down at his underwear and hangs his head. “Why did I have to wear this pair today? Why?”

“What? I think they’re hot.”

“You think my Harry Potter underwear are hot?” I nod. “You are my dream girl.”

I grin and shake my head as I make my way to my bed. I do my best to straighten the covers before pulling back my side and climbing in.

“I think you were right earlier.”

“About?” he asks, standing on the other side.

“This bed isn’t big enough for two. I think we’ll have to snuggle.”

He smirks as he slides in, getting as close to me as possible. I don’t hesitate to match his movements—though I probably should. I should be weirded out that Zach’s in my bed. I shouldn’t gravitate toward him like I do.

But I can’t help it. Zach makes me feel…comfortable. Safe. Warm. Wanted.

We’re lying face to face in the middle of the bed, the blanket draped over our waists, grinning at each other like fools.

“What?” I whisper.

“I made it in.”

“What?” I ask again, confused.

“Your special Hufflepuff-only chamber of secrets.”

“Did you really just…” Laughter consumes me and I’m rolling to my back and covering my face in embarrassment…for him. “You are such a nerd, Zach.”
