Simple overview: One incredibly hot, sexy night after a chance encounter where two soul mates meet, but the timing is just not where it needs to be.
Whoa, this book was good and so powerful. There was something about these two characters that I simply connected with...both of them. Jeff & Karyn are two people that have that instant connection that everyone dreams about. They just mesh perfectly.
The majority of this book is about the 10 hours after Jeff & Karyn meet. Their chemistry is instant and explosive and completely overwhelming for both of them. It was really cool to read a story where the characters were so completely perfect for each other in a completely natural way. There was nothing forced or dishonest about how they come together. I found myself smiling throughout the reading of the majority of this book (even my husband commented on the way that I kept smiling) because there was such a sweetness to these two characters together and how perfect at ease they are when they are together.
But Karyn is in the middle of getting a divorce (her soon to be ex-husband is sleeping with Jeff's little sister...it's how they meet,) and her life is too complicated and messy for the high emotions that they are both feeling. She needs to get things straightened out. Everything about this book is done just so perfectly. I wasn't sure when I read the description and realized that Karyn is married when the book takes place, but Cari writes this story so brilliantly. I should have trusted her on this one. It's fantastically written. The timing of everything is perfect. Just really a beautiful book and romance...and did I mention sexy?? Uh, yeah....it is a Cari Quinn novel...seriously sexy too! Love the body painting! Another fabulous read!

Hot Text by Cari Quinn My first read of Cari Quinn's books and I am very happy I took the opportunity to do so. I truly enjoyed her writing and boy, can she write smexy, hot scenes. Jeff Maddox, twice divorced, is a book editor and big brother to Daisy who is dating a recently separated man (Lon). As a big brother, he steps in to interfere in his sister affair hoping to end it. After Jeff found Lon's phone, he thought to call his wife to inform her of his activities. Eeeeevil right? But the plot to end that affair backfired. Instead, it leads him to an affair of his own, an affair to remember and one never to regret. Karyn, who is in a middle of a divorce, receives a text from a stranger wanting to return her husbands' phone. Willing and very curious she meets him for coffee. However, Karyn is already aware of Lon's activity and not a bit bothered by it. They had fallen out of love a while back. Funny how things work out that way. =D It started out with a single text, a cup of coffee together, smexy texts then a "booty call". Their texts and conversations were full of sexual innuendos, which was fun to read. I love a good flirty couple. And in spite of just having met, both Karyn and Maddox were comfortable exploring each other. Divorce is never easy and finding someone new is hard to do. This sounds like a very plausible story as we live in a world were divorce is a rising status, not always a bad thing, But I do want to say that I applaud anyone who can survive a divorce and rise up to cont. to believe love is still a possibility for them. Just like our H/h, without taking a chance, they wouldn't have found their HEA. And in spite of this book being too short, Ms. Quinn leaves us with a very satisfying ending. No doubt that I will continue to read more of Ms Quinn's work! Notable quote/scene: ~Sexy window scene and painting scene. ~”Reason ten million why women and men had trouble being friends. Once attraction flavored the stew, good manners went out the window.’ ~Jeff’s text: “what r u wearing? Karyn: “Boxers & my shotgun’s beside me…” * Provided by authorWas this review helpful?
