New to the Big Apple, the last thing Lexie Bloom needs is to fall for two guys at once. Especially when she can’t have either. One is her personal trainer, an Adonis way out of her league. The other? A Brit Lit professor her svelte boss insists she woo for her—via text message, no less. Little does she know, the two are the same man…
Matthew Hennessey is intrigued by his shy new client at the gym. But before he gets the chance to ask her out, he discovers she’s the one crafting the flirty texts sent to him by a woman who wouldn’t know Lord Byron from Lady Gaga. To get to know her better, he allows Lexie to play her role. She may have given up on the idea of romance, but Matthew’s bound and determined to show her love is alive and well in New York City.
Honestly the blurb sounded cute in a meet a cute way which is why I wanted to read it but while reading I felt myself growing tired of the games and wondering when somethings were actually going to happen.
Lexie just moved to New York in hoping to make her dreams come true but by day she is an assistant. She wants to train for 5k run so she goes to the gym in her building where she meets Matthew the trainer.
These two characters are attracted to one another but Lexie doesn't believe he would be interested in her. When Lexie's boss asks her to set up a date with a trainer known as buns of steel by texting she agrees but the more time she spends texting this unknown man the more she feels attracted to him. Sooner rather then later Matthew knows it's Lexie texting him and but what will she do when she finds out its been him all along?
The characters were just okay for me. There were characteristics that I liked about them both but them getting together didn't really happen until maybe the last 25% of the story. They became friends of such while both were keeping secrets. When the big reveal happens I felt it had a little more drama then was needed. That part just felt like a soap opera and took away from them finally getting together.
Overall at the end I just didn't connect with these two characters or the story like I thought I would.
