When a mysterious text message summons May Wexler to a biker bar in downtown New Orleans, she knows something is very wrong. Her sister has sent out an SOS, but when May gets there, she’s nowhere to be found and May is the one in trouble—she’s wearing pink espadrilles, she’s got a Chihuahua in her purse, and she’s in the middle of a shootout.
After tall, muscular Ozzie comes to her rescue, May has no choice but to follow him to safety. At the headquarters of his private security firm, the Bourbon Street Boys, she finds a refuge for the night—and the offer of a job. But it’s not long before a gun-toting stalker isn’t the only complication in May’s life: the more time she spends with Ozzie, the less she can deny that they’ve got some serious chemistry. A wrong number got her into this mess…Will it also get her the right guy?
So I picked this book up because it was a book club read AND it was available through Kindle Unlimited on AUDIO! I didn’t know that was a thing, but it couldn’t have been better timed, since it gave me something to do while taking care of Dante besides watching TV. It was also part of me entertaining the hope that I’d actually make it to book club in October… because momma is craving some time with adults!
My top thoughts:
Wrong Number, Right Guy was pretty funny, even if seriously unrealistic. First off, I still don’t understand how the wrong number mess really happened. It doesn’t make a lot of sense. Second, how things unfold – from the bar to the main character later getting a job… yeah, they just aren’t even in the realm of realistic. But, I still enjoyed it. Throw away that desire for things to be plausible and I had fun with the characters and the plot.
I didn’t realize it was part of a series, but now that I see it’s just book 1, I will look up the others. If they are also KU I’m in!
Who I think would like it:
So, you definitely have to be able to suspend your desire for realism. But if you can do that, I think anyone who likes independent female characters, dogs, and a bit of situational humor will enjoy this book.
The narration was really good – in fact, I have no thoughts on it, because it just felt natural to listen to the narrator. And I listened at my typical 2x speed, no problem. All the characters were distinct with voices that felt appropriate for them. Which means Emily Foster is a narrator I would definitely listen to again.
Despite being SUPER unrealistic, Berls enjoyed Wrong number, Right Guy. 4/5 star review! Click To Tweet
