Haley Mitchell is tired of moping. With her broken heart repaired with a thick layer of duct tape, she’s ready to put her ex behind her and move on. After a chance encounter in a club, she’s convinced she’s met Mr. Perfect. But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number, the stranger on the other end of her texts becomes her confidant.
Kyle Lawson has always had more luck with computers than women. So when the new temp, Haley, arrives, he has the misfortune of falling for her, only to land firmly in the friend zone. But when he learns the mysterious woman he’s been texting is actually Haley, he keeps the entire thing a secret.
Haley needs to get over her ex. Her best friend takes her to a club where she meets a handsome guy and gets his number. But, when she finally gets up the courage to text him, she finds out that she has the wrong number. She keeps texting her new wrong number guy, calling him Clark aka Superman, and the two share a hilarious and tender banter back and forth. In return, he calls her Lois and Clark and Lois eventually develop feelings for each other.
Meanwhile, Haley starts a new job and needs the help from the loveable, geeky, but adorable IT guy, Kyle. Haley and Kyle become friends, even though Kyle wants to ask her out. He ends up rescuing Haley from a disastrous blind date and takes her back to his apartment to wait for her friend to pick her up. She texts “Clark” the details of it all while sitting in Kyle’s bathroom and that is when Kyle realizes that his “Lois” is really Haley. The angst of Haley finding out that Kyle is really Clark keeps going and going until it becomes too much.
This is such a good, heart-warming, story about friends falling for each other before they realize who the other person really is. I adored Kyle and his personality. However, there were times where Haley got on my nerves because of her insecurities. But, as a young twenty-something I can forgive that type of thinking. I just prefer a stronger heroine.
All in all, this is a great, sweet, love story that I enjoyed.
