Mr. Wrong Number by Lynn Painter

Things get textual when a steamy message from a random wrong number turns into a thrilling anonymous relationship in this hilarious rom-com by Lynn Painter.

The most sidesplittingly funny, shenanigan-packed, sexual tension-filled book I’ve read

in a long, long time.”
—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis


“A delightfully messy heroine and world-class banter make this oh-so-sweet story of hidden identities and mixed (text) messages impossible to put down.”
—Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of 

The Roughest Draft

Bad luck has always followed Olivia Marshall...or maybe she's just the screw-up her family thinks she is. But when a "What are you wearing?" text from a random wrong number turns into the hottest, most entertaining—albeit anonymous—relationship of her life, she thinks things might be on the upswing....

Colin Beck has always considered Olivia his best friend's annoying little sister, but when she moves in with them after one of her worst runs of luck, he realizes she's turned into an altogether different and sexier distraction. He's sure he can keep his distance, until the moment he discovers she's the irresistible Miss Misdial he's been sort of sexting for weeks—and now he has to decide whether to turn the heat up or ghost her before things get messy.

4.5 Stars

Mr. Wrong Number is a fun, humorous and sexy read. This is the first book that I've read from this author and now I'm a big fan of hers. I need to go back and read other books from Ms. Painter. 

I absolutely loved the characters in Mr. Wrong Number. Olivia Marshall and Colin Beck has the best 'frenemies' banter. Their non-friendship/hate relationship is one of the most entertaining reads in a rom-com. 

Olivia is kind of a hot-mess, but she owns it. After a break-up and some mess, she moves in with her brother and his best friend, Colin, in order to get back on her feet. Olivia and Colin go way back, she's Jack's younger sister and was also known as the annoying kid to Colin. But fast forward, Olivia is all grown up, but, yes, a mess! 

In a weird chance, Colin ends up texting a Olivia by mistake not knowing it was each other. Their fun text exchange become flirty and anonymous and soon become Mr. Wrong Number and Ms. Misdial

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes the new book in her River Rain series, Taking the Leap.

Alexandra Sharp has been crushing on her co-worker, John “Rix” Hendrix for years. He’s her perfect man, she knows it.

She’s just not his perfect woman, and she knows that too.

Then Rix gives Alex a hint that maybe there’s a spark between them that, if she takes the leap, she might be able to fan into a flame. This leads to a crash and burn, and that’s all shy Alex needs to catch the hint never to take the risk again.

However, with undeniable timing, Rix’s ex, who broke his heart, and Alex’s family, who spent her lifetime breaking hers, rear their heads, gearing up to offer more drama. With the help of some matchmaking friends, Rix and Alex decide to face the onslaught together…

As a fake couple.

4 Stars

Kristen Ashley does it again. I love the way this author writes and tells a story, she really makes you fall for every character in her books - you just want to jump in live their lives. And as always, Rix Hendrix, is another uber alpha male character you want on your side!

Alex and Rix work together and Alex has always been the shy one. She's awkward and quirky and Rix wants everything to do with it.  But the last thing he needs is to have an issue with his shy coworker Alex and his best friend and business partner, Judge. 

Rix doesn't know Alex has a thing for him and vice versa. But after some pushing and pulling, these two start to realize how much they mean to each other. And to help Alex out with her dramatic family, Rix decides he will be her fake fiancé to her sister's wedding in New York. Get ready for some family drama and chaos!

This series has so much potential is more books - there are so many characters that are in this series, that I can't (and hope) wait for their stories.
