    1. What do you get when you cross You’ve Got Mail with Cyrano De Bergerac? An indulgent treat! A feel good read from beginning to end with a few moments of angst but loads and loads of warm fuzzy feelings!I was greatly entertained by these characters and their good intentions. But we all know that the road to hell is paved by good intentions and I kept turning these pages waiting for the moment it would all blow up and go horribly wrong. Even though this book sets the premise for a book that prom [...]

    2. 3.5 starsText Me, Maybe was a sweet, quick and entertaining read.The storyline kept me interested, the characters were likable and I thought they were perfect for each other.Overall Text Me, Maybe is a lovely afternoon's read.Thank you Entangled: Lovestruck via Netgalley for the advance copy.

    3. Sometimes it's fun to read a book that you don't have to think a whole lot about. I think that's why I'm drawn to the romance genre for the most part. This one is the perfect example an entertaining book that you can just read and enjoy.I like the basis of the story. An administrative assistant has to work a hookup for her boss, as strange as that may seem. And at the same time she's falling for her trainer at the gym who is a hottie. Who knew that these could be the same person? She never caugh [...]

    4. I just really couldn’t connect with the characters in this novel at all. I don’t know if it is everything going on in my head at the moment causing the disconnect or if it just didn’t work.The plot was good and the story was really well written and perfectly edited I just felt like I was being told and not shown and I didn’t get into it at all.I wasn’t a fan of either character which didn’t help matters. I am sure this book will work for a lot of people but it just didn’t work for [...]

    5. Before I start, I have to admit I am not sure whether this was the updated version of the book or not as according to sources Jolyse Barnett updated the story after listening to customer's feedback the first time around - earlier this year when her book was published. So if my review is a little different to the book you have read, then I apologise in advance. Do you remember the classic novel Cyrano De Bergerac ? The one where loosely there were two best friends and they both had a crush on a g [...]

    6. **** please note**** according to the publisher this book is being updated and the new version will contain significant changes.My review is prior to the new release in July. Thank you for understanding. --------------------------------------------Honestly the blurb sounded cute in a meet a cute way which is why I wanted to read it but while reading I felt myself growing tired of the games and wondering when somethings were actually going to happen. Lexie just moved to New York in hoping to make [...]

    7. Oh what a tangled web we weave. When first we practice to deceive. - Sir Walter ScottThis is a story of lies upon lies with people pretending to be other people whilst exchanging texts. She’s using the mobile of her boss (on the instructions of her boss) to exchange texts with ‘Steel’ - the English Professor who is also a personal trainer. Her boss is trying to get him to go on a date but won’t tell Lexie his real name. Matthew Hennessey is the recipient of the texts. He is also the hot, [...]

    8. I was so excited to read this story, the blurb and cover really caught my attention and I couldn't wait to read it. The story started out strong, I liked the characters and the way the story was heading, unfortunately sometimes stories that start out strong end up taking a nose dive. I loved the texts between Matthew and Lexie even though Lexie thought she was texting her boss's love interest "Buns of Steel". The best part about this book was the texts, that's what kept me reading and not DNF'in [...]

    9. This was a really cute read. A bit drawn out for my taste but overall it was entertaining. Lexie Bloom has just started her job in NYC so she'll do whatever it takes to keep it. Even if that means Lexie is sending texts for her boss to the British Lit Professor her boss has her eye on. While things are going well in the office, the real fun is happening in the gym. It's hard work training for a 5K but the hunky personal trainer Lexie is working with, Matthew, makes it completely worth her time. [...]

    10. This was a cute read. It was very low of the drama, lovable characters and a cute fun plot. If your looking for a Cute, heartwarming funny read this book is for you. There isn't really much that I can say. I really enjoyed the whole Secret texting without knowing, but I did feel the whole thing went on too long. The climax wasn't full of drama, which I really enjoyed.Overall anyone that's looking for an easy read should read this, don't go in it thinking there's a lot of drama and angst or that [...]

    11. ***Note: I read a previous copy of this book that was supposed to be released May 9th and the publisher has since pulled. From what I understand there will be significant changes made to the book, but I have chosen not to re-read the new version. So take this review with that in minde book that releases July 18th is NOT the version of the book that I read.***My Review: I started reading this book while I was watching the new TV show, Strong, which pairs up hot, sexy trainers with normal everyday [...]

    12. *Mild Spoilers*When I read the synopsis I was pretty much hooked. I couldn't wait to read it. One of my favorite kind of books to readTexting! If done properly. This book would have made me feel like I'm sneaking into a private conversation. Getting to know these characters in a more intimate level. And of course a little sexting!Unfortunately this book fell a little short for me.This book started off easy enough. I got sucked in. But As I kept reading it just started to taper down quite a bit. [...]

    13. I've actually read two different versions of Text Me, Maybe so trying to be objective and not just compare the different versions is proving quite difficult - I think I have my librarian hat on, lol.Text Me, Maybe is a cute romance where Lexie meets two halves of her ideal man in what she thinks is two separate individuals. Physically drawn to her adonis of a personal trainer, Matthew, while intellectually matched with the professor who has caught her boss's eye. Torn by her feelings as well as [...]

    14. Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsMatthew Hennessey is a Brit Lit Professor and trainer at the J&C Company gym. He worked hard to become a professor, reaching the top with sheer determination, but his life wasn't an easy road to hoe. His parents were never there for him (and non existent when they were around), and the only person that mattered to him, his childhood housekeeper, in a nursing home, sick. When Lexie Bloom comes into the gym, and he is assigned as her pers [...]

    15. Text Me Maybe is a cute, fun little feel good story that leaves you in a warm, happy mood! I loved the characters and could see how their intentions were good, their execution though, was not so good. I knew all along there would be a huge reveal and was counting down the pages until it happened. There was plenty to keep me interested and I was hoping when the blow up occurred, there would be enough between these two to overcome the fall out.Lexie was a super sweet girl, although she was a bit n [...]

    16. Received in exchange for a honest review.This was fun. I was hooked from the beginning with Matthew and his quotes. Lexie is sweet and confused that is for sure. She comes to the city hoping to get a career and falls for someone or as she thinks two someones. She thinks one is for her boss and the other is out of her league.Little does she know they are both the same person and he is trying to get her in both personas. The texts are fun and flirty but so is their encounters. He as her trainer is [...]

    17. 3.5* Lexie moved to New York to both get away and go after her dreams. Lexie meets Matt, a personal trainer at her company's gym, who unbeknownst to her is also a Lit professor. Her boss requests Lexie to setup a date with one of the trainers at the gym. Low and behold they are the same guy. Lexie doesn't know or realize this, but Matt does.Lexie struck me, at least at first, as a bit immature, naive, and unsure of herself. She had a Bad Thing happen to her with her high school boyfriend that sh [...]

    18. ***ARC Provided by the Publisher***This review is of the re-written book.Unfortunately, this one didn't get better for me with the redo. I had a lot of hope as the potential was there, but it still feels off for me. I don't like the idea that she is flirting with him for her boss; I don't relate to her; their chemistry falls flat for me; and I just can't engage with a book in which it feels like one of the characters is playing the other for a fool.One is a professor, one is a personal trainer. [...]

    19. One woman, two men…or is there? Lexie is on assignment to hook up her boss via text message. Big problem is she feels herself falling for a man she never met and knows nothing about other that he’s a sexy personal trainer from the company gym. While at the same time she’s insanely attracted to her own personal trainer but isn’t opening up to him. Matthew is both men and quickly catches on that Lexie is the one texting him for her boss. He really wants to get to know this intriguing girl [...]

    20. Four Great Stars! Lexi is working as an assistant in a company and also writing plays in her spare time after moving to NYC. Matthew is Lexi's trainer in the gym and she is attracted towards him even though she shouldn't be because of her trust issues. In the meantime she is texting with a man whom her boss wants and Lexi is getting to know him as a romantic. What will Lexi do when she finds out that they are both the same guy? This book is a cute, light read and is good to read after an emotion [...]

    21. 4.5 starsThis book reminded me a little of You've Got Mail, with an updated twist since this is via text not email. Lexie has just moved to NYC, gotten a job as an assistant and living for herself - her dreams that her father's death convinced her to shoot for. In the building of her new job is a gym with a gym membership as part of the company perks. It's at this gym that she meets Matthew - adonis personal trainer who is WAY out of Lexie's league - or so she thinks. Matthew is wildly attracted [...]

    22. This is such a great modern-day love story. Lexie is a aspiring playwright all her life. But just like everyone else, she has to have a day-job working as an assistant. When her boss gives her a personal task, Lexie finds herself in an unusual situation. Matthew is Lexie's trainer at her firm's gym. From the first training session, Matthew knew he want to put the personal into being her personal trainer. Jolyse made me want to sign up to a gym in hopes of finding a Matthew of my own.

    23. Jolyse Barnett hit a home run with Text Me, Maybe. Part Cyrano De Bergerac, Text Me brings the best of both worlds to the forefront with subtle charm and modern sex appeal. The comedy of errors just adds to the irresistible quality of the story. For me, Ms. Barnett embodied the sweet, shyness that makes falling in love so special.

    24. What do you call a book that's not a DNF but something you skimmed through? A Skimmer? That's what happened here. I skimmed after about 42%. I could not find it in myself to care about what was happening between the H/h. Not sure why either.

    25. I was looking for a light, romantic read and that's exactly what I got with Text Me, Maybe. I enjoyed the premise of Lexie thinking she was falling for two guys at the same time. She fell in love with Matthew's body and the literary professor's brain, at least in the beginning. It was kind of frustrating to see Matthew playing both himself and "Steel", as Lexie called him (short for "buns of steel"), throughout pretty much the entire novel. It was obvious to see that once she found out that he w [...]

    26. This review was first posted on For The Love of Fictional Worlds as part of the Blog Tour hosted by Indie Sage PR <3 Actual Rating 3.75 starsWhen you have such a cute blurb, you just know that you need to pick this one up – and it was such a treat to read this cute little romance of misunderstandings.Lexie Bloom is new to the Big Apple, and though she has aspirations of becoming a writer, till she can make a break, she has started working as an Executive Assistant in an MNC. Now she knows t [...]

    27. Apparently working out does pay off. Well, at least Lexie thinks that upon seeing her trainer, Matthew. Forget hyperventilating from exercise, she's having trouble breathing just from looking at him. Okay, focus Lexie girl. It seems Matthew is impacted by his new client as well, which is a first for him. He's always been able to remain professional, but there's just something about Lexie that gets to him, something he wants to explore. At work that same day, Lexie and her boss, Ms. Swann, share [...]

    28. ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest reviewWho wouldn’t love getting flirty and sweet text messages especially when it comes from a sexy and charming man? Or better yet when these text messages are filled with poetic quotes? And in Jolyse Barnett’sText Me, Baby, Ms. Barnett puts a fun, playful and awkward spin on today’s modern version of letters. Lexie Bloom recently moved to New York to make a better life for herself and pursue her dreams. And as new resident of NYC, she k [...]

Text Me, Maybe by Jolyse BarnettRelease info: August 8, 2016, Entangled - LovestruckGenre: Contemporary Romance, ComedyRating: 3 Quills        Heat Level: 1 FlamesI want to start by saying that I did like reading the book. That needs to be said before I get into what will be a more critical review. The author's easy-flowing style of writing and two great characters along with some interesting backup players save this book in my opinion.I read the blurb and thought it was going to be in [...]
