BOOK REVIEW ― Four Letter Word by J. Daniels23:17
"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 . . ."
Rating & Review
Best two and a half weeks of my life came from a girl who was never meant to give me anything. And she was giving me everything.
Four Letter Word. The title is so well thought out and unique and creative in the manner it was woven into the story. I've only read a handful of J. Daniels' books and this certainly topped in the steamy category. Sorry Ben!
I absolutely loved the premise of the book. It was unique in its concept and in the way the title was interspersed in the story.
The book starts with Sydney starting a new phase in her life. A fresh story, that includes leaving her husband and moving in with her best friend Tori. A new story, a new job and new friends. The night she moves in with Tori, is the night the best friends learn that they have been burned by men in the worst way possible. And it was that night Sydney made an out of character decision, that not only turned her world upside down but was also the start of an amazing story.
It was everything. From the start, from the first mistaken phone call, it was everything.
It all started with a phone call. A phone call to an absolute stranger because of a wrong number, turned into multiple texts and calls between Sydney and Brian.
The man on the other end of the phone, Brian Savage, is battling with his own demons that have plagued his consciousness for a while. His ray of light, in his otherwise darkness, is Sydney and her spit fire attitude which formed an unusual relationship and was the start of a friendship between the two.
I was waiting on pins and needles and holding my breath for the moment when Brian and Sydney would meet and J. Daniels did not disappoint! Their connection, even before they had met each other was very strong and when they did meet is was explosive! Literally!
One word that held so much and sounded so loud, and if it was written, I could read it forever.
Brian is dealing with a lot of things at the same time. He hides a lot of things from his family, friends and Sydney and one secret that he is hell bent on telling anyone.
But we all know how the deep hidden secrets have the ability to pop up. When Brian's secret is revealed, it leaves behind heartbreak and destruction. But with all the pain came a moment for Brian, where he was free of the guilt he carried with himself and I LOVED that moment. It was the emotional climax and the beginning of things getting better for him.
Now, while I thoroughly enjoyed every minute reading this book, I was not satisfied with the ending. I wanted something more for Brian and Sydney in the end. The ending just felt a tad bit rushed. But since this is a series, I am assuming we will get a few peaks of Brian and Sydney life through the eyes of their best friends, Jamie and Tori.
Overall, this was a fun and sexy read and if you are looking for something that will make you flip pages then rest assured, this is the one!
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.
