Textual Encounters by Morgan Parker


Katie discovers an unlocked iPhone in the back seat of a taxi. But instead of turning it in to the driver as lost, she decides to keep it for herself.

Outside of the usual clutter you would expect to find on a smartphone, what captures Katie's interest is the single conversation she finds on the phone's secure text messaging service, a three-month dialogue between a woman with an uncertain past named Christine and a single, eligible man named Jake.

From Strangers to Soulmates in 90 Days

What starts out as a message intended for someone else ends up being the beginning of a relationship more powerful than anything Christine or Jake have ever experienced.

But nothing ever turns out to be as good as it initially seems and their histories slowly reveal details and past lovers that threaten to derail their humble quest for love.

Forgotten In The Back Seat of a New York City Taxi

Can Christine and Jake overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, doubts and secrets that endanger their love?

If so, why would such a relationship get forgotten in the back seat of a New York City taxi?

Presented in a Format Unlike Any Other You Will Find

Follow Katie as she reads through the 3 months of conversations that form The Christine + Jake Affair and provide the foundation for the Textual Encounters Trilogy.

~My Review~

It all starts when a college student Katie finds a cell phone in the back seat of a cab. Katie begins to scroll through the texts and is immediately captivated and intrigued.
Katie starts the ninety day journey of Jake and Christine's text messages. She has no idea how emotionally drained she will be at the end of the heated love story. It takes Katie on a ride she will never forget. There are so many up and downs that it leaves us asking more questions and what Jake and Christine's motives might be through out the book.

The love affair starts by an accidental text sent to Christine from Jake. This is the beginning of their three month affair that neither one of them saw coming.

We soon learn that one of them has been lying to the other. This textual encounter takes a twist and turn of pure shock and wonder. It leaves us with a major cliffhanger that left me wishing the next was in my grasp.

I have never read anything like this. I wasn't sure if I would liked it based upon the text dialogue between Jake and Christine. I will be the first to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised.
It was very well written by Morgan Parker. I am definitely ready for the next installment.
