Get ready for Trouble (R.S. Grey, USA Today bestselling author) in this New York Times bestseller about starting over, finding love, and embracing life's second chances.
Sydney Paige was never so mortified to hear the words "wrong number" in her life. She meant to tell off the guy who broke her best friend's heart, but unleashed her anger on a perfect stranger instead. And now her world is turned upside down by the captivating man who wants to keep her on the line.
Brian Savage is living a life he's quickly come to hate-until Sydney's wild rant has him hooked and hungry for more. Soon the sexy woman on the phone becomes the lover in his bed. But Brian has secrets, and the closer he lets Syd get, the harder it is to shield her from the devastating mistakes of his past.
Daniels (Sweet Obsession) launches a contemporary series with this uneven, ultimately disappointing novel. In the promising opening scenes, best friends Sydney and Tori, who are both having man trouble, decide to embrace a life of single gal pals living together in a small North Carolina town. But Sydney's hilariously overdone attempt to defend Tori leads to an embarrassing mistaken telephonic confrontation with Brian, a local surfer with some baggage of his own. As she gets to know him, Sydney starts to realize what she was missing in her marriage. Brian and Sydney embark on a charming sequence of phone calls and text messages, cautiously proceeding through a secretive quasi-affair that's a delight to follow. But when they finally meet in person, the story spirals into a series of uncomfortable encounters with Brian's unforgivably sleazy friend Jamie, interspersed with summarized sex scenes. The book develops an abrasive focus on catering to the emotional needs of the male characters. The story is innovative and interesting for the first half, but by the end it looks as if this series might be one to skip.
Amazing and funny
Read this in one day, couldn’t put it down. Love the story line about how they meet and the obstacles they face to be together.
Beautiful and Addictive!
I’ve read every books by J. Daniels and she’s one of my absolute favorite authors. She has a way to write enthralling and funny characters that stay with you long after your book is finished reading. Four Letter Word was a book I’d been waiting for a long, long time to release and I wasn’t disappointed in the least. It was an incomparable read that left me full of feelings! It was different from her other works, maybe a more polished style. She really upped her writing with this new one.
I adored everything about this story about two strangers healing each other through phone calls, after a wrong number turned into an astonishing connection. What Sydney and Brian share through phone calls is so beautiful. There is an understanding between them and they both become hooked by these stolen moments where they can share everything that’s in their hearts and minds without fear.
“My world was one miserable mistake-shaping second after another, except for the breaks in my misery that belonged to her.”
The anticipation of their first meeting was a sublime RUSH. The wait was killing me. When it happened it was just WOW! Butterflies in my stomach worthy and tears in my eyes assured! Most definitely my favorite scene of the whole book. It is that POWERFUL. The level of intensity between them is over the charts! As always with J. Daniels, the intimate scenes are steaming hot! She has a gift to write characters with so much chemistry that it ignites across the pages.
But their story isn’t all about the good, because they both struggle with sadness, guiltiness and secrets that could destroy everything they started to mend in their lives.
“You’re just a voice and that’s all you’ll ever be to me and I can’t, I’m not okay with that. I’ll never be okay with that little of you.”
Overall this book has everything. You laugh, you cry, you swoon, you visit every spectrum of emotions possible! There’s also the secondary characters surrounding the main couple that bring a lot of interesting moments and deepness to the novel. Can’t wait to read about them in upcoming books of the Dirty Deeds series. J. Daniels definitely achieved to bring to life an emotional and addictive new series!
