AUTHOR: K-lee Klein
PUBLISHER: Amber Quill Press
LENGTH: 114 pages
Lewis has spent most of his adult life looking after his aging parents, and he recently ended a relationship with a domineering guy who’d been nothing but bad for him. Despite his less-than-stellar track record with men, he’s still hopeful there’s someone out there for him, but he’s learned to be careful with his heart. So he can’t figure out why a cryptic, gruff, drunken voice mail from a stranger named Jerry doesn’t make him hit the DELETE button. It’s clear the man’s got the wrong number. But when Jerry begins to text, Lewis finally responds, saying he’s not the guy Jerry wants. Jerry, however, is nothing if not persistent, and he keeps texting and teasing Lewis, even after he knows the truth.
Lewis is surprised when something sparks between them. Jerry turns out to be charming and witty, and they develop an odd friendship through text messages. When Jerry suggests they finally meet in person, Lewis is apprehensive, yet curious. Can he take the big step to meet Jerry face-to-face? More importantly, can he maybe even trust Jerry with his heart?
Lewis just got out of a bad relationship without his self esteem in tack. He now second guesses himself and needs to remind himself what his ex said about him is not true, which of course is easier said than done. So going out and meeting new people isn’t that easy, until he gets a call on his phone from a wrong number and a slurring drunk male voicemail and then the following day from the same number a text message.
Jerry hasn’t had the best day at work or in his personal life. He just broke it off with a guy, ok so they weren’t going out long but it’s still rough. He tries calling the guy and dials a wrong number leaving a drunken voicemail then text. When he gets a reply from the text and it’s not who it was meant for he decides to have some fun and keep the textversation going. Will anything come out of it?
I really did enjoy this book. The banter between the two was funny and got even funnier when Lewis loosened up to Jerry. Lewis’ mother and father are great and show that they really love their son no matter what and that goes both ways with Lewis taking care of them. My only issue was some of the grammar that wasn’t caught in editing, but other than that I would say check it out and enjoy Jerry and Lewis get to know each other and enjoy Lewis come out of his shell.
