Toni Capella always falls for the wrong guy—tattoos, muscles on top of muscles, and an inability to hold down a decent job. Since her last relationship went up in smoke, Toni’s vowed to only date men who wear suits to work. Expensive ones.
When her boss hires contractor Cooper Flint, Toni immediately strikes him off her list of potential love interests. Cooper embodies every bad boy trait there is. Besides, her eye is on Milton Rinks. Nice, sweet, and totally boring. Milton is not her regular which is why he’s perfect.
Toni insists she and Milton keep their budding relationship separate from work. She even suggests they do their initial courting via text, hoping that romantic interest will follow once she gets to know him better. There’s one problem. She starts to accidentally text Cooper, not Milton.
Cooper can’t figure out why Toni is so terrific via text and such a shrew in person. It’s one thing to keep her private and professional life separate, but she’s not even nice to him when she sees him in person.
Will Toni discover she’s falling for the wrong guy? Will she see past her misconceptions and give Cooper a chance? Will Cooper forgive Toni for throwing her drink in his face at Le Petite Brassierie ? Is this really the last book in the texting series?

Melanie Summers also writes steamy romance as MJ Summers.
Melanie made a name for herself with her debut novel, Break in Two, a contemporary romance that cracked the Top 10 Paid on Amazon in both the UK and Canada, and the top 50 Paid in the USA. Her highly acclaimed Full Hearts Series was picked up by both Piatkus Entice (a division of Hachette UK) and HarperCollins Canada. Her first three books have been translated into Czech and Slovak by EuroMedia. Since 2013, she has written and published three novellas, and eight novels (of which seven have been published). She has sold over a quarter of a million books around the globe.
In her previous life (i.e. before having children), Melanie got her Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta, then went on to work in the soul-sucking customer service industry for a large cellular network provider that shall remain nameless (unless you write her personally – then she’ll dish). On her days off, she took courses and studied to become a Chartered Mediator. That designation landed her a job at the R.C.M.P. as the Alternative Dispute Resolution Coordinator for ‘K’ Division. Having had enough of mediating arguments between gun-toting police officers, she decided it was much safer to have children so she could continue her study of conflict in a weapon-free environment (and one which doesn’t require makeup and/or nylons).
Melanie resides in Edmonton with her husband, three young children, and their adorable but neurotic one-eyed dog. When she’s not writing novels, Melanie loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. She also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something–more like just staying until they turn the lights off.
She is represented by Suzanne Brandreth of The Cooke Agency International.
