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...

 "'WILD' was his four letter word for 'love'."

What a great read this book turned out to be! This is my first from this author and certainly it won't be the last. When one of my trusted book bestie, Rachel told me to grab a copy of this read, I requested for it without even reading the blurb. This book had a good mixture of everything that should be in romance read and I finished it in one complete sitting! 

It all started with a phone call to a wrong number. When Sydney was coming to terms with her own life-shocking news, she received a call from her distraught best friend and learned that her best friend's ex-boyfriend was a lying doucheface. Being the awesome BFF that she is, Sydney took matters in her own hands and made an angry phonecall to the only learn later that it was the wrong number.   

Brian surely wasn't expecting to receive an unknown phonecall in the late night and he definitely wasn't expecting to be yelled at with insults when he picked up the call. Enamoured with the spiteful woman on the other end of the line who later apologised, he finds himself wanting to talk to her again. What begin as a few text messages turned into a friendship where they find themselves confiding into each other. 

This book had the wit, the humor and a nice build of romance going on between Sydney and Brian. The chemistry between both of them can be clearly felt eventhough they were both practically strangers who have never met each other. I love the hilarious exchanges they had and Brian was definitely swoon-worthy without even coming off too strong for a guy who clearly feels something for this girl he's never met. 

There was also a good mix of drama and angst thrown in but nothing over the top that would make me roll my eyes at them. Both Sydney and Brian have issues in the past that they're healing from and it was really nice watching both of them help each other to go through it.  

"I'm going to give you Wild for the rest of your life and so much of it
you won't have room to feel anything else."

If you're looking for a sexy, sweet romance read with humor and wit, this book is definitely for you! I'm looking forward to read more from this author and the next book in the series which features Sydney's and Brian's best friend!
