I was beyond excited when I found out that I’d be receiving an arc for this book.
I fell in love so hard with Teagan’s Texting Books and after all that I’ve read so far and Teagan’s teasing about the book in the Facebook group, I was so READY to read this book.
I was so curious about the story of the main characters in this one. So I was really excited when I fired up my Kindle and started reading. I soon found out that this was going to be one of those books that you really want to finish in one sitting. One of those books that reeled me in completely right from the very first page and held me captive until the end.
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.
This story was such a magnificent blend of Second chance romance and haters to lovers romance – although technically both characters didn’t Really hate each other but just liked to push one another buttons haha. The banter between these two characters was to die for and their chemistry was so frigging hot AF!
The characters are exquisite. Let’s talk about them by using their ‘nicknames’ shall we? We promised the author to not divulge on giving away names of these characters when we agreed to review this books – in order to not spoil anyone – , so that’s why I’m sticking to their nicknames here. You have to find out for yourself who this book is about by picking it up then, right ;)?
Captain America, our hero with abandonment issues, and Bucky, our lovable, ‘speak-your-mind’- heroine (This author deserves an award for adding so much awesome referrals to her books about comics and movies and such) are set for a really intense and emotional bumpy ride in the chase for their HEA.
Bucky is Sassy and funny and these character traits of hers are, among other, such a great addition to Captain America’s sense of humor and arrogance. I can’t imagine coming across someone who won’t root for these two firecrackers.
I especially Love Captain America’s determination to BE better and that some things are worth fighting for. Until the very end. I love characters who redeem themselves, who work their way through their struggles and Show the people around them that they Can own up to their mistakes. RESPECT! Couldn’t love this dude more!
The texting elements in this book in particular was something I ended up loving so much yet again! It’s a focus point in all the books in the series and book 1 will remain my most favorite to be honest, but the texting between these two characters in this book was so funny, heartwarming and addicting to read.
I really fell in love with these characters through their texting alone already. I think it says enough about the author’s talent if she’s able to have you falling for characters with ‘just’ text messages. There’s so much palpable in the words.
I love that the author chose to include past text messages for example. This way, we knew how they both fell in love with each other in the past and how everything fell apart. That gave the second chance romance elements so much more depth because I was emotionally so intensely involved in it all.
Aside from the firm friendship base of the romance – I love the friendship being present first so much-, there’s so much chemistry present which makes for such a steamy romance. It had me hot & bothered so many times while reading the story and I loved it so much! Teagan is so good in writing these build ups and having me feel all the feels!
It had me laughing out loud so many times, which is something Teagan’s so good at writing down: humor and the most terrific banter between characters. I think she’s one of the best RomCom authors out there at the moment, and this book is yet again proof of Why I feel like that.
Teagan’s book are always the right kind of romantic, funny, heartwarming, angsty/dramatic, adorable and nerdy. And Text me baby one more time was no exception to this. It was all that and I loved every second of this reading experience.
I know for sure that if you’ve loved other books in this series, you are going to love this one as well! And that you’ll be left with an aching hole in your heart after finishing it, knowing this was It.. Although I keep hoping there’s more to come in this series someday.
Anyway, this author is one I’d gladly added to my auto-buy list. This is an author who has me already looking forward to reading her next book, whatever that may be hehe. Let’s get Textual is still my absolute favorite in the series, but Text me baby one more time is a very close second! Very close and ends the Texting series with a bang! I couldn’t have wished for a better final installment in the series. I’m so going to miss these characters – thankfully there’s something called Re-Reading hihi.
Safe to say I’m recommending this one, right? hihi!
It can be read as a standalone btw!
If you love RomCom, this is an author you want to put on your radar ASAP!
Thanks for reading!
