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 . . .
The sun burned across a cloudless sky. I felt the intensity of it bake into the skin of my bare shoulders.
Waves crashed against the shore, some carrying surfers with them in the distance. A few feet ahead of me, a small child kicked a sand castle and giggled with his father.
I sat down on a step and slipped my sandals off.
The sand was warm underneath my feet as I dug my toes into it, staring out at the world in front of me. I rubbed a shell between my fingers as I watched a couple walk hand-in-hand toward the pier.
They looked happy. I tried to remember the last time Marcus held my hand, or even reached for it.
My chest burned when I couldn’t conjure up an image in my mind.
I looked down at the faint line marking my left ring finger. The token I was left with now that I no longer wore my ring. It was subtle, thanks to my naturally pale skin, but to me it stood out like embers glowing in the dark.
I hated it. I didn’t need a reminder of how I’d failed as a wife. Or how Marcus stopped seeing me as one.
Maybe I could coat my entire hand in sunblock except for that thin strip. Burn the memory away.
The idea seemed promising enough to consider.
From my back pocket, my cell beeped with an incoming message.
I wiped the tear from my cheek as I stood and palmed my phone, expecting to see Tori’s name lit up on my screen.
I froze on the step, my free hand on the railing as I stared curiously at the message and the number it was sent from.
Wild Girl. Eaten any innocent men alive today yet?
My lip twitched, the hint of a smile.
I sat back down, reading the message a second time as I remembered my conversation with this stranger yesterday.
My accidental verbal beat-down.
Jesus. I really let him have it.
I couldn’t think of the last time I was that embarrassed.
I told the guy to remove a dildo from his mouth, for Christ sakes.
All in all, whoever this was seemed to be a good sport about it. He could’ve laid into me and cussed me out. Made me feel even more like a complete shit for dialing the wrong number and not confirming the identity of my intended victim before I tore into him like he owed me money.
He was more than decent about the whole thing. Easily forgiving.
And now he was messaging me out of nowhere and striking up conversation.
He wanted to talk to me.
I tapped my thumb on the edge of the phone case, then hovered over the letters of my keypad as I stared at the message.
Did I even want to talk to this guy anymore? Wasn’t this weird? We didn’t know each other. Our encounter was a mistake. A one-time mishap, never to be repeated.
J. Daniels sure knows how to work her magic on me cause I was spellbound throughout this entire fabulous story. When I finished the first chapter I was gone.
She had me.
Hook, line and sinker!
Or should I say Sydney had me,
then Tori had me,
then Brian and on and on.
I've read all of J. Daniels books and I can honestly say I treasure them all.
Mostly because of their characters.
Four Letter Word was no different.
This story had so many amazing characters and they all had their story to tell.
They were layered and well developed.
I loved Sydney!
She was a loving and loyal woman who tried everything to save her failing marriage
but with no such luck because of an absent and out of love husband.
She was strong as hell when she pushed her hurt feelings aside
to show her love and support
for her best friend Tori when it mattered. Their friendship was amaze balls.
So much fun and so much love
between them and also between
Sydney and Tori's parents.
So much history.
A Beautiful and heartwarming history.
Brian is now my favorite male character from the J. Daniels universe.
Wow! He swooned,
wooed and broke my heart.
He was a broken and flawed character but with so many layers that
he kept surprising me.
In the best way possible.
He and Sydney's first encounter
It was hilarious, it was sexy and
it was super cute.
How their relationship developed and progressed from there was perfection.
The build up and foundation between them was deliciously written and only made me fall even more in love with both of them.
Sydney and Brian were before they met broken in one way or another and how they healed one another was truly captivating. Their connection and chemistry was intoxicating and I could feel it jumping off from the pages.
J. Daniels definitely made me hot and left me panting heavily on numerous times.
Their relationship was highly sexual but it worked because it was so obvious how much their love mattered and had changed the both of them.
For the better.
The secondary characters were spot on too. From Sydney's best friend Tori, her work colleagues at Whitecaps to Brian and his friends at Wax to his sister Jenna and his niece and nephew. They all were intriguing and written with so much love that I was captured immediately.
The writing and pace of the story were immaculate. I'm so excited and in love with these characters that I'm on pins and needles for the sequel.
Definitely J. Daniels's best work yet.
