Review: Until It's Right by Jamie Howard

Haley Mitchell is tired of moping. With her broken heart repaired with a thick layer of duct tape, she’s ready to put her ex behind her and move on. After a chance encounter in a club, she’s convinced she’s met Mr. Perfect. But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number, the stranger on the other end of her texts becomes her confidant.

Kyle Lawson has always had more luck with computers than women. So when the new temp, Haley, arrives, he has the misfortune of falling for her, only to land firmly in the friend zone. But when he learns the mysterious woman he’s been texting is actually Haley, he keeps the entire thing a secret.

As things move straight from platonic to decidedly hot, Kyle must come clean about his secret texting identity and risk losing the woman he’s fallen in love with.

What I thought about Until It's Right

This was a cute story of finding love in the most unexpected place and time.  Haley isn't having a great time of it in the romance area, but she finally decides to move on only to get burned again with a wrong phone number. That number does belong to a stranger that she happens to confide in and they begin an e-relationship via text message.

Kyle doesn't know (yet) who the mysterious woman is on the other side of the text message, but he plays along with it.  There's a new temp at work named Hayley, and he falls for her.  I liked that Kyle isn't super confident when it comes to girls and the fact Hayley keeps him in the friend zone probably helps motivate him when he finally gets a chance.

But when Kyle figures out who he's been texting, he's got a bit of a dilemma. Tell Hayley the truth or not?  Will she forgive him if he doesn't?

Overall, this was a really cute story that packed some heat.
