It’s bad enough when high-school senior Keeley grabs the wrong phone while leaving her small town’s end-of-summer fair. It’s even worse when she discovers that the phone she now has belongs to the obnoxious, self-centered Talon and that he’s just left for football camp … with her phone. Reluctantly, the two agree to forward messages for a week. And as Keeley gets to know Talon, she starts to like him. Keeley learns there’s more to Talon than the egocentric jock most people see. There’s more to Keeley, too. Texting Talon, she can step out of the shadow of her popular twin brother. Texting Talon, she can be the person she’s always wanted to be.
Sparks fly when the two finally meet to exchange their phones. But while Keeley has been playing a part online, Talon has been keeping a secret. He has a different connection to Keeley — one that has nothing to do with phones, and one that will make their new relationship all but impossible. Knowing what she now knows, can Keeley trust him? And can love in the present erase mistakes of the past?

First off, congratulations on your debut, Lindsey! It means the world to me! You’re such an amazing writer and I’m glad that your beautiful book is finally out in the world for everybody to read. I’m sure they’re gonna fall in love with it, just like I did.
Textrovert is the story of Keeley and Talon who fall in love via texting. Their phones get exchanged at a fair, but before they can swap them back, Talon has left for football camp and is not due to return for sometime. This means that they’re stuck relaying messages back and forth for each other. While exchanging messages, they get to know each other and once Talon is back, spend time together and soon, they’re in a relationship. But, Talon has been hiding quite a few important things from Keeley and she’s not sure how she feels about Talon once they’re all out in the open. So, of course, the question is, whether Talon & Keeley get their happy ending.
This book is absolutely amazing. I adore it. I love it. I have a lot many feels for it. Talon is one of my favorite book boys and he is very high on my list of book boyfriends because he is so amazing! I like that his character is so flawed. His done some very, very stupid shit in the past and frankly speaking, it makes me hate him, but the way he’s learnt from it and how remorseful he is about the entire thing just tugs at my heart. He’s learned from his mistakes and he’s trying, very desperately, to become a better person. I like that. He owned up to what he did, he admitted he was an asshole to have done it and he apologized. He didn’t shift the blame or make any excuses for himself which is an admirable trait. I really like that about him. Also, he’s smart and funny and witty and so goddamn sexy it makes me melt! GAAAAAAHHHH!
Keeley is just as amazing. I like how she’s so straight forward and doesn’t suck up to anybody. I love how she loves her brother and helps him out even though he kind of takes her for granted. There was once a time when they were inseparable, but they’ve grown apart as they grew up. Still, whenever Zach needs her, Keeley is always there. I really like that. Then, there’s how much she loves her best friend. Nicky is certifiably quirky and not exactly right in the head, always getting in some sort of trouble. I really like Nicky, but what I like more is that Keeley is always a part of her harebrained schemes despite her better judgement and it makes for a lot of funny moments.
This book is absolutely amazing and you should definitely read it!
