Everything was going great—until we discovered I was his son’s teacher.
This book does feature characters from Let's Get Textual & I Wanna Text You Up but can be read as a standalone, as the book does not follow the same timeline.

Can't Text This is the first book I have read by Teagan Hunter and I am so excited to read the books released earlier in the series. This is a series (even though it's not shown here on GR) of interconnected standalones. They are all romantic comedies and revolve around getting to know someone through text messages. I really enjoyed this aspect of the story even though it took me a little time to get used to it. Don't worry. The whole book isn't written as a long series of text messages but quite a bit of communication between the hero and heroine (Monty and Robbie aka Python) does take place through text messages.
In addition to this, the book also encompasses the single dad romance trope, a tattooed hero trope, a virgin trope, and a casual encounter trope (if there is such a thing). I really loved how all of this was combined into one! It works for the story, the characters, and the series as a whole I think!
As far as the characters go, I loved Robbie (aka Python). He is such a charmer and takes dirty talk to a whole new level. He is the swoon worthy single dad that all romance readers fall head over heels for and the way he communicates his feelings are priceless. I loved the way he interacts with his son and his best friend Zach (they are like Pauly D. and Vinny from the Jersey Shore), and how he opens his heart despite being afraid to do so.
Monty is a cute character as well. She is the virgin heroine that lives a pretty modest life. She doesn't swear, doesn't drink, and certainly doesn't "hook-up" with strangers from bars. Or does she... Monty is easy to love but it took me a little time because of how innocent and naive she came off. I mean there was only so much "aw drats" that I could take! Must be because I am a bit more foul mouthed then her... But I digress. She's a cute character with a big heart and she fits perfectly with our hero in an opposites attract sort of way.
Anyway, this is a cute romantic comedy and I found it to be a very fun read.
