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 . . .
Four Letter Word is the first book by this author I have read and not sure why I kept putting this author off. I have seen her works around for a long while now, and every time I saw these books at B&N I was so tempted to grab them up. But I just never really did but I can say that I was impressed with the style implemented here. And it had a take on it that was so unique and different in some various aspects that just drew me further into the story with each chapter.
Four Letter Words begins with our heroine, Sydney, having her husband walk out on their marriage. And when her best friend gets hurt in one of the worst ways, she isn’t super fond of the male species at the moment. But when she decides to call the man that hurt her friend and give him a piece of her mind…..it ends up being the wrong number and sparks fly between her and her mystery caller. And soon after they start texting and sharing calls on the phone, and learning each other in cute charming ways. Sydney never knew what she would do once she met him in real life, but when they do meet….the chemistry and emotion between them is off the charts, and she finds a love she never expected to find in a man that gives her all…
The heart is never wrong, honey. It’s just stupidly hopeful like the rest of us
This story was *sigh* was so dang good here and I was so in love with the style in which this book evolved and seeing their love story grow was packed with charm. The level by which this book is character driven was what sparked my interest the most within this story. I didn’t want to give these two up because their love story was heart warming. Our hero, Brian is a man dealing with trauma of knowing an action of his caused hurt to a child. And is doing everything he can to help provide the family with all that they need financially to make up for it even if it means becoming a porn star. He hates it but does it because the money is good. It isn’t until he meets Sydney he starts to see that life is worth living again and not be so consumed by mistakes of the past. It was Brian’s character that just drew me in fully into the story. I adored his character so much, there is so much pain within him and I wanted to just heal his hurts. There is so much goodness to his heart. Sydney is a wonderful heroine, I do wish she had been more open and understanding to him when she learns the truth of it all, which is what kept this book from a five star read. The way she reacts to it all, especially when she knows the “why” of it just kinda baffled me, it just didn’t fit with her character at all.
Overall I found Four Letter Word to be a stunning story to immerse one self in this author’s writing, the charm, humor, and fun narrators just gave this book all the feels it deserved! I can’t wait to delve more into this world.
