Review of Four Letter Word by J. Daniels

The bit on the back…

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 . . .

This is the first book of J. Daniels' that I’d read however after I’d finished I downloaded the first two books from her Alabama Summer series and had checked when the second book in this series was due for release. I’ve since read those other three books!

This is the first book in J. Daniels' most recent series – Dirty Deeds. It’s all about main characters Sydney “Syd” Paige and Brian “Dash” Savage. I didn’t know what to expect from this as I bought the book based on the cover alone so I started without any preconceptions. The book starts off from Syd’s point of view and events quickly escalate into the first intense conversation between both characters. Sydney dials Brian’s number by mistake and as the blurb suggest unleashes hell on him. This comical start to their relationship sets the tone for the level of intensity you can expect throughout the book.

The pair continues to get to know each other without meeting in person and fleet in and out of each other’s lives while their proximity to one another remains disguised. The amount of times I wanted to scream at one of the characters that the other was right there, literally RIGHT THERE, is considerable however this added to the overall angsty tension throughout.

Both characters hold back secrets from one another however the extent of the secrets Brian keeps from Sydney is undoubtedly greater. As the narrative comes from both characters you are given an insight to each character and given the difference between the backstory of each character I think it worked really well. There are definitely parts of the book that I liked more than others – Brian’s side occupation for example was not my favourite part of this story!

If you’ve read Everything I Left Unsaid by M O’Keefe I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book, it has a similar storyline with very different characters.
