I Know You Want Me…
One last hookup. At least that's what graphic designer Jenna Cho has in mind when she texts her toxic-in-life but amazing-in-bed ex, Jax. When her gorgeous boss Jack responds to the booty call instead, Jenna learns exactly why a girl should never hit send after one too many vodka sodas. Still, faced with Jack's sexy grin and even sexier Irish accent, Jenna thinks maybe she messaged the right man after all—especially when he admits he's been hoping she'd make the first move…
Cara Lockwood's "Texting Under The Influence" is a steamy novella. You have to love a leading man with an accent! I also like how the leading man, Jack, falls in love too fast...nice to see a guy struggling with moving too quickly! The premise is great - certainly drunk texting the wrong person is a story line for our times! My one issue is that there was a lot of drama packed into this short story - you can't pack every situation into a novella (or even a full-length novel). I'd like to see what else this author has out there.
