About TEXT ME BABY ONE MORE TIME
I love you, he said.
Forever, he said.
Turns out, he lied.
When he leaves me high and dry after a cross-country move, I push him out of my life as much as I can, which is hard to do when the guy who broke your heart also happens to be the most famous dude in town.
After a disastrous year, he’s aiming to rehab his reputation, and I just so happen to be aiming for a promotion at the paper.
So, we strike a deal, and it’s a win-win all around.
Besides, what’s the harm in a few dates to charity galas anyway?
He’s arrogant, a total jerk. There’s no way I’ll fall for him…again.
I used to love him. Now I hate him…I think.
Sometimes there will be a character that is so vile that we readers hate everything about them. It takes a talented author to create a character that is hated but not cartoonish and over the top. And once in a while, that talented author will write the most beautiful redemption story for that character and we end up loving him instead of hating him. But like Text Me Baby One More Time says, there’s a thin line between love and hate.
We first meet Shep in Let’s Get Textual, the book that started this amazing series. He is the younger brother of Zach, and college classmate of Delia. He is a horrible person and does something abhorrent to Delia and is the catalyst for a rift between the two. We meet Denny in Can’t Text This as the twin sister of Monty. We don’t get a lot of her backstory in that book but we know she is completely different than her elementary school teacher sister. She is unfiltered and not at all shy about her sexuality.
Text Me Baby is the redemption story we didn’t know we wanted. It is told in dual point of view, and both six years ago and in the present. Past Shep and Denny “meet” via text in high school, when their best friends want to get engaged. They continue to text each other and develop a strong friendship and then more. They decide to give a relationship a shot when they are finally at the same college the next school year. Fast forward to the present, and this obviously didn’t work out. We don’t know what happened for a long time, but Denny hates Shep for what he did to her. But they need each other – she needs his interview for a promotion and he needs her to clean up his image.
I already liked Denny from Can’t Text This, but enjoyed learning more about her. But I love a good redemption story and Shep’s is outstanding. He learned so much about his own behaviour and really made an effort to amend his actions. And total honesty, the last chapter of the book made me tear up at all the feelings, and that is a rarity for me.
Note: This book can definitely be read as a standalone. While these characters are connected to others in the series, and those characters make appearances in this book, the relevant information is given here and you won’t feel like you are missing something if you haven’t read the others. But having read them all adds so much more depth to the experience of this book that I highly recommend it. And if you have Kindle Unlimited there is no excuse not to read them all!
Don’t miss the other books in the Texting series!
