"Love! That's the four letter word to describe how I felt about this unique, sexy story. J. Daniels' hottest book to date."---Penelope Ward, New York Times bestselling author

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 . . .

Publisher's Weekly Review

Daniels (Sweet Obsession) launches a contemporary series with this uneven, ultimately disappointing novel. In the promising opening scenes, best friends Sydney and Tori, who are both having man trouble, decide to embrace a life of single gal pals living together in a small North Carolina town. But Sydney's hilariously overdone attempt to defend Tori leads to an embarrassing mistaken telephonic confrontation with Brian, a local surfer with some baggage of his own. As she gets to know him, Sydney starts to realize what she was missing in her marriage. Brian and Sydney embark on a charming sequence of phone calls and text messages, cautiously proceeding through a secretive quasi-affair that's a delight to follow. But when they finally meet in person, the story spirals into a series of uncomfortable encounters with Brian's unforgivably sleazy friend Jamie, interspersed with summarized sex scenes. The book develops an abrasive focus on catering to the emotional needs of the male characters. The story is innovative and interesting for the first half, but by the end it looks as if this series might be one to skip. Agent: Kimberly Brower, Rebecca Friedman Literary.

Booklist Review

Daniels turns up the heat in the first book in the sexy new Dirty Deeds series. When Sydney's husband wants a divorce, she is shocked, only snapping out of it when Tori, her best friend, calls crying about guy trouble. Syd instantly decides to move to Dogwood Beach, live with Tori, and start fresh. Invigorated, Syd also decides to call the man who broke Tori's heart and rip him a new one. After listening to a long string of insults, the man on the phone lightheartedly informs her that she dialed the wrong number. Syd is mortified, but the next day the mystery man texts her. Brian is amazed by this sweet, wild girl who called him by mistake. As their relationship moves from texts to calls to hot words whispered over the phone, Brian falls fast, but he knows it can never work. His shameful past is something he can't drag Syd into. Then after a chance face-to-face meeting, he knows he can never let her go. Fans of alpha males will devour Daniels' spicy new-adult romance.--Smith, Patricia Copyright 2016 Booklist
