Summary:

It’s bad enough when high-school senior Keeley grabs the wrong phone while leaving her small town’s end-of-summer fair. It’s even worse when she discovers that the phone she now has belongs to the obnoxious, self-centered Talon and that he’s just left for football camp … with her phone. Reluctantly, the two agree to forward messages for a week. And as Keeley gets to know Talon, she starts to like him. Keeley learns there’s more to Talon than the egocentric jock most people see. There’s more to Keeley, too. Texting Talon, she can step out of the shadow of her popular twin brother. Texting Talon, she can be the person she’s always wanted to be. 

Sparks fly when the two finally meet to exchange their phones. But while Keeley has been playing a part online, Talon has been keeping a secret. He has a different connection to Keeley — one that has nothing to do with phones, and one that will make their new relationship all but impossible. Knowing what she now knows, can Keeley trust him? And can love in the present erase mistakes of the past?

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and decided to review it. This in no way affects my opinion.

This book was super adorable and exactly what I needed at the time. It was light and fluffy but also had some more serious moments and thoughts of introspection that made me think. However there were some moments that I rolled my eyes and said "That wouldn't happen" and it was very obvious that the author didn't go to high school where Football Was Life because the boys would NEVER be allowed to have their cellphones on the sideline or they would be murdered. 

I liked the lead up to the story and how Talon and Keeley met. I thought their relationship was really cute and adorable and made sense. I liked how they came together and how they became friends and then more. I thought it was all really realistic and not rushed. They had really good chemistry as well. 

I also liked Keeley as a character. I liked seeing how she grew up and grew a bit apart from the people in her life. It was nice to see her be able to be her own person because it felt a bit as though she was always in the shadow of her brother and her best friend, but learning more about Talon she got to be who she truly was and make her own decisions.

The biggest flaw in this book is the conflict. Because no matter how many times someone apologizes or if a girl comes and gives me a real apology, I would never forgive someone for what Talon did. That was just a hard no for me and it made it really difficult to enjoy the ending of the story.

Overall, this was a fun, cute, and quick contemporary read that I think most people will enjoy. Just don't think too hard about it and you'll be fine.
