Staff Sergeant Travis Donovan is on the hunt for his little sister. Though he hasn’t spoken to her in years, his last deployment reminded him how short life is, and it’s time to reconnect. Only problem? The one piece of contact information he has, a cell phone number, belongs to someone else now. A woman named Ariel. A woman he can’t get his mind off.
Ariel Winston doesn’t have time for a man. Her plate is full with work and grad school and family obligations, and she’s fine with that. But the innocent friendship she’s sparked with Trav, the anonymous texter, can’t hurt. Right? It’s not like she’ll ever meet the guy face to face.
But when these two collide during a night of voyeuristic pleasure, they have decisions to make. Will they balk at what fate has dropped into their laps? Or be willing to look beyond the unique circumstances and enjoy their finite time together?

As far as scents went, horse manure was not Ariel Winston’s first choice of perfume.
– When Ariel and Travis first meet, unaware they are the ones texting each other > Instant chemistry followed by a very steamy scene
I really liked this first taste of KJ Reed’s work. I loved the tight friendship and banter between Travis and Pete as well as between Ariel and Mary Ellen. I would have liked to see the mystery part of the plot solved but leaving it unresolved also gives me hope of seeing Travis and Ariel back in future installments of this series.
TEXT ME is a quick, hot read with great characters, subtle humor and sizzling chemistry. A steamy and short read that definitely makes you want to read more by KJ Reed.
“It’s not like I’m going to meet the guy in some dingy motel off the highway for a quickie, Mary Ellen. It’s just talking. I can stop whenever I want.”
“You sound like an unconvincing alcoholic in the middle of an intervention.” Mary Ellen laughed.
