Book Description

Christopher Clarke is the nicest guy Amy Fallon has ever met. He is handsome, smart, funny, an all-around great guy. Tyler Clarke is hot. So why is Amy, one of the smartest girls in school, so clueless when it comes to realizing who she is truly falling in love with? Or better yet, who’s falling in love with her.

Amy is forced to spend the week at her grandmother’s house in Arizona. She returns home to New York with a closer bond to her grandmother, with a best friend who she adores and with a boyfriend who she believes is everything she has ever dreamed of. After months of communication with the two new men in her life, things finally seem to be falling in to place for Amy. That is, until she starts to realize whom her heart is truly longing for. When she returns to Arizona almost a year later, things don’t go quite as planned when she is blindsided not only by the death of her grandmother, but learns the truth behind the text messages from Tyler. With time, and a little help from her grandmother’s memory we are able to see if her broken heart can heal and get Amy back on the course she was destined for.


“I can’t wait.” Amy was genuinely excited.
They walked out to the parking lot and said their goodbyes.
“See ya tomorrow!” Dana shouted to them as they were walking away. 
“Okay!” Amy yelled back. They had just left and she already couldn’t wait to see them again the next day.
“They’re cool, right?” Chris asked. 
“Very,” Amy answered right away. 
Chris puffed his chest out. “I knew you’d like them. I could tell they really liked you too” 
They waited by the car for Tyler, who took his time walking over to join   them. He 
moved slowly, clicking the doors open with his key chain. They were all about to get 
in the car 
when Tyler turned to Chris. 
“Hey man chuck this for me.” Tyler held out the soda cup he was slurping on during 
the movie.
“Chuck it yourself,” Chris said.
“Then walk home,” Tyler said matter-of-factly.  
“Just give it to me.” Chris huffed as he took the soda cup from his brother and walked over to the trashcan. 
Amy and Tyler got in to the car shutting the doors. She heard a click and looked over at Tyler who was laughing. “Watch this,” he said to her.
A moment later Chris came back and opened the door to the car. Clunk,  it wouldn’t 
“Unlock the door,” Chris said through the window. 
Tyler ignored him.
“Open the door,” Chris said impatiently.
Tyler clicked the button back and forth quickly. Chris went to open the door. Clunk, it wouldn’t open. 
Amy shifted uncomfortably in her seat. Tyler looked over at her and lifted his eyebrows at her as he continued to laugh. 
“Tyler, I swear to God man. Why you doing this?” Chris asked shaking his head. 
Amy felt bad for him. Tyler continued to ignore him and started the car. Amy looked 
out the window at Chris giving him a sympathetic look. Tyler put the car in drive and drove forward a few feet. Chris walked forward a few feet and knocked on the window. 
“Come on man please,” Chris begged. 
Tyler clicked the door and this time Chris was able to get in. “You’re such a puss 
Chris. I shoulda made you walk home.” Tyler laughed at him before turning the 
volume of the music up high so that no one was able to talk the entire ride home. 
Amy felt her phone vibrate in her pocket and she slid the phone out to see a text from Chris. 

This was such a good and well written story! I really liked the characters, Chris and 
Amy. I can feel their different personalities and I think they meshed 
really friends :) You see the title as 'Texting Tyler' as yes there is a Tyler. 
That's Chris's older brother, who is not at all like Chris (I loved Chris!)
so why does Amy text Tyler? Well you are going to have to read that for yourself, and believe me, it was a wonderful story. I liked that there was a 
good amount of humor, and Chris and Amy just seemed like 
relatable characters; I found myself relating to Amy in a few ways
 including the experience of visiting and having a good relationship with a 
Grandmother, so in the beginning, I was reminded of good memories of my 
own, so that was nice. In part of humor, there were definite real feelings felt, and I felt 
for Amy at times, and you will read why, so all in all, this is a 
great story, and hopefully there might be more to this story? That would be pretty cool! :)

My Rating: 4.2/5
I say Rated PG-13 With Some Language
