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 . . .
What I wasn't prepared for was for her to up her game once again. I'm not sure how she manages to accomplish this feat every time, but I can honestly say that this book surprised me. There was something about these characters that were just the little bit edgier, and she managed to have a fresh feeling to writing that I really enjoyed. Trust me when I say, you will devour this book and immediately go add Hit the Spot to your TBR. Get ready, because you're about to get hooked on an exciting new series.
Sydney's life is in shambles. Suddenly single and broken hearted, she picks herself off the ground and starts over in a whole new town with her best friend Tori. I loved the relationship that these two women had. They were true sisters in every sense that matters, and had each other's backs through everything in their lives. It was Sydney's loyalty to her best friend that led to "the phone call." The one that started it all. When she dialed the wrong number by mistake, she met someone on the other end that found her fire, her wild to be everything he didn't know he was looking for.
We didn’t know each other. Our encounter was a mistake. A one-time mishap, never to be repeated. Right?
They begin a friendship, getting to know one another at a deeper level before they even met. That was such a unique and fantastic part of the story. To see their attraction grow not from lust, but from something so much stronger. Not only that, but that build up to when they finally did meet was incredible. Once they moved to flirting, and started dancing around the possibility of actually meeting, you are right there with them and desperate for more. Only, there's something holding Brian back from meeting her. His life isn't everything it seems, but no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't bring himself to let her go.
My world was one miserable mistake shaping second after another, except for the breaks in my misery that belonged to her. And no way was I ready to give that up.
I absolutely loved these two together. They both had a lot of healing to do, each in significant ways. Brian needed to move past the guilt chaining him to a horrible tragedy, and she was just finding her wild spirit again after having lost it for so many years. Together, they grew and found a partner at a time when they least expected it. Brian has one hell of a secret, however, and the consequences of holding his silence may be the loss of the woman who has come to mean everything to him.
I can't stress enough how much I loved this introduction to the new series. As usual, she has me fascinated to read everyone's story, but Jamie and Tori's book is the one that has me very impatiently waiting to read. If you haven't read anything by this author before, now is the perfect time because these are going to be her best yet.
