Review: Textual Encounters by Morgan Parker

Textual encounters

4 star review by Guest Reviewer Allison East 
Circumstance, chance meetings, and fate. That is what Textual Encounters is all about. This was a freebie when I purchased it and it looked interesting enough, however I was very intrigued with how it was written. A majority of the novel is text messages back and forth between Christine and Jake.
Katie is actually the main character in the story- she discovers the cell phone in a taxi that holds a mystery. Instead of turning it in- she keeps it for herself, because it was an iPhone 5, and she really wanted one for her birthday. Katie's attention is captured by a text message conversation spanning 90 days between Christine and Jake. The messages started out as a case of mistaken identity, but feelings begin to develop for one another. It's fate, kismet, love at first type. It all seems to good to be true. And if its too good to be true- doesn't that mean it usually is? It seems like if the relationship is to withstand then why leave the phone behind? Katie does play a pivotal part in the story- but it is a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. It is definitely a gem that a lot of people don't know about. And I chanced upon this book from a website because it was free. Typically I never stray from my To Be Read pile (which is a mile long) but one night I wanted a quick read before the hubby came home and I remember the description. Boy I'm glad I did! I really enjoyed it and would recommend for a sweet, quick, and flirty read. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. Ps- a man wrote this one! I love men authors, especially when they write romance novels!!!
