Until It’s Right, Jamie Howard

Until It’s Right,  Jamie Howard

Genre:  Romance,

This sounded intriguing – who hasn’t dialled a wrong number, though most don’t lead to situations like this!!

 

Haley is recovering from a really bad breakup and her trust in men has been shattered. She’s content to stay home but  her roommate is determined to get her out of her rut, and drags her to a bar one friday night. She meets a gorgeous man there, he gives her his number, but when she texts the guy at the other end is a stranger. Still, his texts were sweet and funny, and they continue a strange kind of anonymous text relationship. As he’s no idea who she is she feels free to tell him all sorts of things, to confide in him, ask him for advice.

Starting her new temp job she meets Kyle, IT geek genius, and a really friendly man. They end up lunching together most days, and from there into a few off the cuff other meetings and finally dating. He’s carrying a big secret though, he knows who she is, didn’t at first but then something happens that makes him aware of it, but she doesn’t know he’s the guy she’s texting. Secrets come out though don’t they, always at the wrong time, thought to be honest there’s never a good time for one like this.

I did understand how Haley felt, it must have been so embarrassing knowing you’ve coughed your heart up, so to speak, to a stranger then finding out you’ve been telling the man you’re crushing on how you really feel about him. Poor Kyle though, he’d been burned by his ex too, then meets Haley and they become good friends though he’d like more,when he discovers she’s Mystery woman, the lady he’s been texting. How can he tell her? When can he tell her? Should he even tell her or leave it alone and hope she stops texting? Whichever route he takes she’s going to be upset and he really wants to try a relationship with her, they get along so well and he wants more of that…Poor guy, damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.

I liked this story, enjoyed how events played out but didn’t really feel gripped to it, unable to put it down. Its a fun read but for me not one I’d re-read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
