I Wanna Text You Up by Teagan Hunter
Narrated by Emma Wilder
Standalone in a Connected Series. Romantic Comedy.
Let’s face it. Most relationships nowadays are conducted mostly via text. Text conversations allow us to be funnier, sexier, more mysterious, more laid back, and sometimes be more honest…or the opposite. That’s one of the reasons I really love this series. After listening to Let’s Get Textual by Teagan Hunter for the second time in two weeks, I jumped right into I Wanna Text You Up, which can stand alone, but is better if read after, but not right after, Let’s Get Textual.
Zoe is Delia’s (from the first book) best friend and roommate. But now that Delia is moving out, Zoe wants a new roommate. She places an ad, and when she gets an email about the apartment, some fun banter begins. I was giggling right from the start! When Zoe sets up the meeting, there may be a problem….
“Because you’re my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, that’s why.”
And because I find you extremely attractive, idiot.
With how much I’ve been noticing him lately, there is no way in hell I can confine myself to an apartment with the guy. That’s a recipe for disaster and too many late-night me time sessions.
Plus, there is girl-code, and Caleb is off-limits, even if Delia is happily with someone else now, right?
They were so cute together, and there is no doubt of their chemistry via text, but in person there was a much, much slower burn. I actually really liked that because I think that is just the same way in life. It’s so easy to flirt via text, but in person, it’s a whole different thing.
“Hey, uh, Caleb?”
“Is that your dick poking me or your phone?” He presses his lips together, trying his hardest to hold in his laughter. “That would be my dick, Zoe.”
I really loved this one, almost as much as the first. Quite honestly, I think I would have loved it even more if I didn’t listen right after listening to I Wanna Text You Up twice. The books were very similar, using a lot of the same terminology in places, and even having an adorable animal. Having the same narrator exacerbated this, though I absolutely love her. I’m not sure I would have noticed if I didn’t listen in a row, so I advise that you don’t binge listen to this series, and listen to a few others in between.
- Laugh-out-loud funny
- Banter and messaging are my two favorite things in books, so it’s a guaranteed winner.
- An adorable kitty.
- I loved how they were more forward and flirtatious via text.
- Enough drama and angst to keep it interesting.
- A slow burn.
- The friendships.
- It was a bit too similar to the first, especially listening in a row.
Emma Wilder is a new favorite after listening to this series. I couldn’t imagine anyone doing it better. You would think a duet would work better in this type of writing (mostly texts), but it was almost like listening to a duet. She is THAT GOOD. It’s amazing how quickly she had to change voices and she never missed!
