Yep! I think this is a great idea for a list, since so many real-life couples that have fallen in love (and even married) started off in chat rooms. I remember back in the old AOL days… 😉
Cicely: YAAAS DEAR AARON WAS AWESOME TOO!
D.G. Dear Aaron was a five star for me also! Heck, I love all her books. It is definitely a slow burn…
Leslie M: Let’s Get Textual by Teagan Hunter… I needed something to perk me up and this was great! Excellent narration, hilarious dialogue, lot’s of sexual tension and an adorable baby goat! 4 **** Also, I think after checking out the author’s Instagram, I might need to be her new BFF. …It was funny, sexy and swoony. Perfect for a “feel good” read. 🙂
Jen C: …recently finished Let’s Get Textual and loved it!
Anyone have a book recommendation? And if you have a real life story to tell us, we’re all ears too!! 😉
Maryse: I have one for it right off the bat, that was one I already submitted to another reader request earlier, and this fits BOTH trope. YAY!!! What a great for “Flat-Out Love” by Jessica Park, ’cause this one is all about falling in love with someone via Facebook chatting. OHHHHHH BOY you are in for something AMAZING with this one. 😀 MUST-READ!!!!!!!! P.S. Here’s my 5-star Book Review.
Nancy: Oh my goodness! The book that just came out: Day One by Lauren Runow. They meet on Tinder during the Coronavirus quarantine. And then start texting back & forth.
Maryse: THAT IS PERFECT!!! YES!!! I’m adding it now. 😀
Mony: Day One looks…interesting…love during a quarantine?
Maryse: And also, I could swear one of my favorites from back in our early indie days, Easy by Tamara Webber, had a whole “chat thing” going on with a tutor for her college class… and they REALLY connected. OMG if there are any that haven’t read this one, it is a must-read and a love triangle, and had my heart aching and a really awesome twist!! P.S. Here’s my 4.5 star Book Review.
Kristi: Happily Ever After Playlist that just came out has this! So good.
Mony: Couldn’t decide on one…sorry! I liked these. 🙂
