Up front, I must say this book was sickly sweet and corny, and the plot wasn't original, but there was something about it that engaged me from start to finish. Keeley was a relatable character who developed and grew throughout the book, and talon was a sweetie with hidden depth. The only character who annoyed me was Zach, Keeley's twin brother and Talon's arch football enemy. I found him shallow and selfish, although he did redeem himself slightly at the end. I managed to read "Textrovert" in a couple of sittings as much of the writing consisted of texts between Keeley and Talon. However, there was far more to the story than just the swapping of messages. There was continual drama between Keeley and Talon as secrets were revealed, but there were also some adorable moments between them as well. With no sexual references or language, and a very cute romance, younger teenage girls, especially, will love this book.

*I received this book ...
*I received this book through a GoodReads Giveaway.* This novel is pretty good for the author's first. I appreciated the idea of two teenagers getting their phones mixed up and the ensuing drama. If anything, it was the last few chapters I wasn't sure of. Talon is revealed to have shared revealing pictures of his former girlfriend (she moved out of town as a result) and Keeley has to decide if she will forgive him or not. I realize this is an issue more and more teenagers face, but my complicated adult feelings may be getting in the way of the book's relatively smooth resolution to this problem.
Enjoyable teen romance...
Enjoyable teen romance about Keeley who accidentally switches phones with Talon, whom she has never met and their ultimate budding romance. But there's complications involving Keeley's twin brother Zach and Talon's x-girlfriend.
