Can’t Text This by Teagan Hunter
Narrated by Emma Wilder and Rudy Sanda
3rd in a Series of Related Standalones. Romantic Comedy
I am in love with the Texting series! Texting, emails or messaging is my favorite form of banter in a book, so this series is right up my alley.
“Hi Monty. Wanna see my python?”
Monty is a good girl trying to be bad one night by fooling around with a stranger in a bar bathroom. I mean how can she turn down that line? Robbie is a tattooed “bad boy” who only looks like a bad boy. He’s actually a sweet single dad with an adorable little boy.
“I wanna bang!” Zach’s eyes bulge from his head.
“My friend Marty from school bangs all the time. He and his dad love doing it.”
Monty and Robbie got to know each other via text and their charming, funny and dirty banter had me non-stop smiling and swooning, but it was Xavie, his little boy, who stole my heart.
The blurb makes it sound like there is a huge conflict that is the main part of the book, but it happened late and was over quick, so there was basically no angst or drama, but that was OK with me. It was a light, fluffy, fun listen.
- Xavie, the little boy, was hysterical. I love kids in books.
- The text banter was so much fun! I think that’s how most people get to know each other nowadays, and I love how it was the perfect mix of texting and together time.
- Robbie was a total perv and everything had a double meaning (that’s what she said), and Monty was so the opposite, she didn’t even curse.
- I actually loved it even more the second time.
- Visiting with characters from the previous books including animals.
- They were such opposites but complimented each other so well.
- The blurb gave away too much that happens way later in the book.
- I thought I remembered Robbie being black, but the guy on the cover is white?
The first two books were narrated by Emma Wilder alone and they were AMAZING because she does the sexiest guys! This book broke form and has a second male narrator. While I usually like that, in this case, Emma was enough, I think that she did the guy’s part better than he did. His narration just didn’t do it for me, especially when her male voice is sexier than his.
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4.5 Stars, 4 Heat, 4 Narration
These books are related but read fine as standalones.
