Love + Texting

Title: Love + Texting
Author: Lexi Aidyn
Genre: Sweet Romance
Release Date: January 20, 2021


Dani is crushed and lonely after losing her big brother. Is Drew the angel she didn't know she was looking for?

She swore she would steer clear of any relationship with anyone in the military after losing her brother while he was in the Navy. He was the only family she had left, and now he's gone.

Six months after his death, she's still texting her brother, without a response of course - until one day she gets one.

After 10 years in the Marines, Drew feels it's time to settle down and spend more time stateside closer to his mother and sisters. After being back for a few weeks, he gets a new cell phone and within hours of activating the number, he receives a strange text message.

UNKNOWN NUMBER: Why do I fall for it, right? I went out on a blind date with a friend's boyfriends' friend. Does that make sense? Anyways, long story short, I got stood up. Never doing it again.

DREW: The guy’s a loser.

They never expected one text message to change their lives. As the texts continue, can Dani and Drew let their guard down long enough for love?






With class over, I head to my truck and pull out my cell phone, and check if I have any missed calls or text messages.

Since I've only had the phone a few days, few people have my new number. It bugs me a little that I hoped to find a text from "Girl who got stood up," the name I gave her on my phone. Whatever, I guess I can make the next move.

DREW: How's your day going?

I wait for a few minutes, watching for those three little dots that don't come. So, I try again.

DREW: You have a name?

Then I see the three dots.

GIRL WHO GOT STOOD UP: Not sure it's a good idea to exchange names since I'm sure you're busy with work.

What is she talking about? Work? She doesn't know what I do.

DREW: We can at least share first names. That way, I can change your name on my phone from 'girl who got stood up.

While I'm still wondering about her first comment, I shoot off another text.

DREW: What did you mean, I'm busy with work?

I see those three dots again…

GIRL WHO GOT STOOD UP: You're a funny guy. You said you've been busy with your career. I didn't want to bother you.

DREW: What I should have said is, I WAS busy with my career. I'm in a good place and ready to make time for other things in life.

I figure if I tell her first, she has to share her name too.

DREW: How about this? I'm Drew. Your turn.

I wait and don't see the THREE dots appear, which can only mean she's thinking about it.

GIRL WHO GOT STOOD UP: That's good. Don't want to keep you from those other things in life.

DREW: Come on, don't be like that. We've been texting for a few days now. What's the harm in you giving your first name?

GIRL WHO GOT STOOD UP: I don't know. You might be a stalker or, worse, a serial killer.

DREW: Really? That was my plan all along, in the off chance that some random woman texts me by mistake on the phone that I've had less than 24 hours. I have the perfect opportunity to stalk her, or better yet, I'll add her to my list of women I've killed over text.

GIRL WHO GOT STOOD UP: You have a point. I did text you first. I'm Dani.

Dani. I wonder what that stands for. I don't ask because I know she will not share any other information.
