Dahlia Cox, 21, has a crush on her dad’s widowed friend, ex-military and current security guy August Berner (specific age never given). After setting aside college due to financial constraints, she works a job at a security firm too—a job that August helped her get but with his competitor. When Dahlia’s firm runs into some financial difficulties, she gets herself into an awkward situation at work that leads to an intimate new relationship with August, her identity unknown to him.
This is where the plot gets a little convoluted. I could brush off Dahlia’s missteps on experience as she does come across a bit sheltered, if not naïve, at times; but, it required some suspension of disbelief when it came to August. As the head of a private security company in this day and age, it seemed like he should have had IT skills or connections to trace her account.
Anyways, if you don’t think too hard on that aspect or the fact that August is attracted to her, but is really into sexting his “mystery woman,” then it might be smooth sailing. Their texting is pretty hot!
Told via their alternating first person POV, Dahlia and August especially had potential. It was refreshing (and a bit funny) to see the guy also stumble through new things when so often it’s the heroine who’s the fish out of water. I just wish they’d have been fleshed out a little more and their actual relationship developed alongside the sexting. When they finally get together, it felt rushed and lacking.
There’s a little suspense angle involving August’s job and his musician client. Those scenes kept me turning pages both for the who-done-it and for their amusing rapport with each other. I do wish the reveal would have been a little more exciting though. Otherwise, the safe, low angst aspect of the tale was pleasing. The cover's pretty hot too! As a final, published copy though, it needed another proofreading.

Almost a forbidden romance as the Male main character is best friends with the Female main characters father, but they didn't become best friends until recently.
Dahlia has a crush on her father's friend but would it really be okay to persue this?
August is a widower and met Dahlia's father at a grief support group. Being attracted to his friends daughter was never part of the plan or even something he expected.
Pretty good read. Secondary characters are pretty annoying but as long as you focus on Dahlia and August's story you will make it through this book.
The story itself was okay, but not one I would read again. I liked the idea of the story a bit more than I liked the actual story, I think. I will say the steamy parts were good and some of what little sexting existed was okay. The title made me believe I was going to be schooled in the "art" of sexting and I wasnt. Too bad, because I was looking forward to it.
Jess gives us the feels- all the good kinds.
