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 . . .
Four Letter Word is everything I love about J. Daniels and yet it’s like none of her other books. This book is legit sexy sin and highly entertaining, like all of Daniel’s books, but the writing is so different. Nonetheless, I was easily pulled into the story and I am already ready for more in this series!
The story is told from Sydney and Brian’s point-of-views. We first meet Sydney when her husband decides he no longer wants to be married and informs her that he wants a divorce. I don’t think Sydney is necessarily heartbroken over the loss of him, but for the life, she thought she would have. Yes, she wanted more from her marriage, but letting go of her commitment isn’t easy. That night she leaves abruptly and goes to stay with her best friend.
Her bestie has just discovered her boyfriend has been cheating on her and with all of Sydney’s pent up aggression she decides to call the cheater and give him a piece of her mind. Let me tell you she gives him a HUGE piece of her mind and that’s the moment I fell in like with this strong, loyal woman. Then much to her horror, she discovers she has called the wrong number and through my laughter, I knew I loved Sydney.
Brian, the wrong number guy, actually falls a little bit for her at this point too. Well, maybe it’s best to say that he is intrigued by her. So what starts out as playful banter between the two of them leads to a real connection. I honestly loved how they got to know each other by phone first. The level of anonymity allowed them to be honest and share things we normally keep hidden. It also allowed them to truly get to know each other on a deeper level. As things progress Sydney wants to meet Brian, but he turns her down. There is still so much she doesn’t know about him, but her strong feelings leave her demanding more or putting an end to their relationship.
I really loved how Sydney and Brian were together. I loved the genuineness, honesty, and humor. They were so fun together and did I mention completely hot, but there was a lot more to the story. The emotional side had me really feeling for both Sydney and Brian, things are not what they seem and they both have obstacles to overcome.
My only complaint and believe me it’s a little tiny baby issue, this story read a lot like a KA book. Now I love Kristen Ashley, but her writing style is very distinct and while I was reading it I was almost distracted at times. Did that mean I didn’t love the book, absolutely not. I loved the alpha-male-directness, but it did cause me to pause a few times. Now this is something I don't think will bother most, so I hate to even mention it, it's just something that took away from my enjoyment.
So should you read this book, YES! I absolutely think so! It is definitely one of my favorite J. Daniels books and I can see why so many people are loving Four Letter Word!
