Summary of Book: When Zach Hastings and Delia get into a wrong-number mix-up, they don’t follow the rules. They keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction. Delia’s not looking for love, especially after just breaking up with her boyfriend and definitely because Zach has the wrong number. But even with the wrong-number mix up, Delia slowly begins to think that just because Zach has the wrong number… he might be the right one for her.
“It’s not over. It’s the beginning of a new adventure.”
The first chapter opens with Delia breaking up with a man she’s been with for a few years. It’s clear that there are no feelings between them and Delia even admits that. But… when they decide to break up, mutually, and completely friendly (no drama), she begins to sob… Which I didn’t understand. And the random, instant crying over a relationship they both deemed was useless just didn’t make sense to me and put me off. After reading the first chapter, I put the book down and didn’t touch it for a few weeks.
But, I grew bored and decided to try again.
AND I’M SO GLAD THAT I DID!
One, the texting parts of this book were interesting and kept my attention. I personally love books that involved texting or emails because it not only breaks up the monotonous of reading paragraph after paragraph but it also lets us see the person behind the written out descriptions of their emotions.
Two, and most importantly, the connected between Delia and Zach is instant and so, so palpable. As soon as the first chapter was over, and the real story began, I couldn’t put this down. I actually couldn’t. Again, I laughed out loud, multiple times, and the random scenes they had felt so natural that if Delia and Zach existed in real life, I know for a fact that they’d be together.
Three, there’s a dramatic moment that I actually don’t hate. It doesn’t last long (spoiler) and I love that for everyone. Usually when authors stick in a drama moment just to add a little spice, it feels fake and fades too quickly. While this one didn’t last long, it didn’t fizzle out into nothingness. I actually loved their drama moment. and the texting. And the hilarious exchanges. And, well, basically everything about this.
Four, I’m excited about book 2 so, yeah, I liked this.
This is lighthearted and not really one of those books you’ll think about days later so don’t read this with that expectation. It’s one of those really, really good ass books that you read, love and then move on to the next. but it’s exactly what I needed when I was bored and in a book slump and needed a good ass laugh.
