I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Fate. Hate. Love. Lies.Which four letter word will change their lives forever?
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 . . .
I loved, loved, loved this sexy romance. It was just the right amount of sweet, sass and heat, and I ended up devouring it in one sitting. While I could predict most of the storyline, it was the richness of the characters that had me so invested. I found both the main and secondary characters’ interactions addictive and their banter drew me in every single time.
Before we go any further, let’s just say that it was the cover that caught my eye in the first place and I still can’t stop looking at it. Let’s look at it. I can wait here while you go back up to the top of the post and refresh your eyes. unf, right? I know. Love. Ok, back to the review…so this definitely had an insta-love, but don’t let that scare you. It was also insta-serious-chemistry, then insta-attraction and Sydney and Brian couldn’t help being overly consumed and so in love. I got it, I did. Bought all of it and I totally ship them.
I was so impressed with both Syndey and Brian’s honesty…all the time. There were no games, no manufactured drama, just straight up getting to know each other and love each other. It was kind of awesome to watch them fall in love. Even when the sh*t hit the fan (as we knew it would) I loved the maturity of how they both handled it. All of it. It was real and watching them work through it made my heart so happy.
The romance was red hot and h.e.l.l.o. dirty talk. It also didn’t hurt they were both gorgeous and my god, this was good stuff, my friends. Trust.
The secondary characters Tori and Jamie….oh I cannot wait for their story!! Jamie the manwhore, yes please and thank you, and Tori the gorgeous, smart and ready to try love again girl who needs some sexy time. I know they will be explosive once they finally connect and I cannot wait.
Anything I didn’t like? Honestly, not really! Some parts were a bit too coincidental and I wish they had been done differently. The fact that they were in the same town and crossed paths was a little too much, but it’s fiction so I went with it.
The ending was great and I loved the closure Brian got. Both he and Sydney were in such a good place. I can’t wait to see more of them in the next installment, even though they won’t be the main characters I will enjoy seeing their relationship progress even more.
Rec this? YES! If you like a quick hot read with a great cast of characters this is a fantastic addition for your TBR.
