I picked up this Audible book, under my Kindle Unlimited membership, some time ago. It was in the "I'll get to it eventually" category, with no particular rush. I hadn't heard much about it and I didn't have any expectations. It was a nice surprise to find a funny, cute story with endearing characters.

May, the heroine, was a riot. With her pint-sized dog, Felix, in tow, she was a force to be reckoned with. Her constant misadventures and humorous antics kept me laughing all the way through this s

She suggested I go ahead and get off my ass and read this one with her.

My dog Zoe found out there was some Chihuahua action going on in this book and her ears perked up.

The story starts out with May getting some text messages from what she thinks is her sister's new

I really hate to DNF an Elle Casey book because I have read several books by her and they have been hits. However, this one was sadly a full blown miss for me. In fact, by the halfway point, I was forcing myself to keep going and skimmed as far as I got reluctantly.

I loved the start of the story and the cover. I loved that both hero and heroine dogs were instrumental throughout because they were so very cute. The heroine’s sister was really likable character as well but the heroine w

Wrong Number, Right Guy is book one in the Bourbon Street Boys series by Elle Casey. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Montlake Publishing and Elle Casey.

I sadly have to inform all of my former book boyfriends to move over, there is a new book boyfriend in town, and his name is Ozzie. This book was perfection. It was hilariously funny, sexy, sweet, and just wonderful.

I really wanted to like this one, but it just was not working for me. The heroine was not the brightest crayon in the box, by far and the hero was 'meh' - May was annoyingly dense, and in no way seemed like a 29 year old woman... and Oz didn't have much personality. Unremarkable characters combined with a somewhat silly storyline, Wrong Number, Right Guy left me underwhelmed. I've enjoyed other work by this author, but unfortunately this one was a huge miss for me.

Wrong Number, Right Guy was something unexpected. I picked it on a lark, and I ended up with a good time on my hands.
Funny text mistakes between two sisters Jenny and May had me rolling from page one. For whatever reason, autocorrected text mistakes hit my funny bone, so the mood was set. However, May Wexler and her texting woes are about to get real.
Jenny has ventured out with her pack of kids to buy a new phone. A few hours later a text comes from a number May doesn’t recognize, but she ass

Elle Casey is one of my top finds of 2015 after reading the Shine Not Burn series a couple of months ago. I had absolutely no hesitation in grabbing Wrong Number, Right Guy from Netgalley, and no doubt I would love the bones of it like I did with the other books.

I'm not new to Elle Casey's writing. I enjoyed her LOVE IN NEW YORK series and when I saw that Shelby and Kelly gave this one 5 stars each, I decided to abandon the books I was reading and read this little hottie instead.

Well now, it seems like miracles are possible.
Normally, I hate idiots. I DNF books after the first 10 pages if I just smell a character that is annoying the hell out of me. So, I have to hand it to you Casey, you surprised me! Think it's the first time that I actually liked an idiot! No clue what you did or how you did it, but you made me curious enough to read this book and even liking it!

After reading several books from Elle Casey, I was excited to read her Bourbon Street Boys series. Wrong Number, Right Guy is the first book of the series.

May Wexler is a freelance photographer. She's close to her sister, Jen, and thinks nothing of it when she receives a text from an unknown number. She just assumes it's her sister who was getting a new phone. The text asks her to come to a bar in downtown New Orleans, so off May goes. It turns out that the text was from a wrong number, but May

Not the worst, but I've definitely read better.

So our heroine calls the hero for the very first time:

A gruff voice answers. “This better be good,” it says.
“Are you the guy with the horrible beard?” I ask, my voice breathless and way too high.
“Come again?”
“You’re the Bourbon Street guy, right? Well, I’m the bimbo with the dog from the bar, who’s not a bimbo by the way. I need your help. Again.”

WTF IS THIS SHIT? And why am I enjoying it so much?

Well, I liked Ozzie...? Does that count? I do have a few problems with this story and I think they attribute to why I just couldn't get into it.

May was suppose to be a 29 year old freelance photographer, but I got no sense of any of this other than it being mentioned that she takes pictures. Nothing about what she does, her equipment, her business or passion, nothing. As for the maturity part, there were times I could've confused May with a sixteen year old having a sc
Great potential, but lack of the great hero. I have a hard time rating this book. Just as I love do bookshelves tagging, here I do not know what to choose. I'm confused, so I decided not to rating it at all.

The idea for the book was very refreshing. You see, it starts insanely. I do not know if it was a joke or what. I was ready that she wakes up from a crazy dream at any time. I could not believe it was actually happening, and foolishness heroine. But after some time it was even funny and you c

This was really cute, really funny, but was definitely not my favorite of the few Casey books I've read. I loved Oz, and I loved the team dynamic, but I never really jumped on the May train. I found her to be kind of annoying, although, she did have her moments.

I laughed quite a few times, I love funny books, and Casey is most certainly good for them. I just thought it was really rushed, and I felt it was really missing some key components for me to want to give it higher than 3 stars.

The first half is entertaining... The second half just doesn't work for me... And the end is equivalent to being dunked in 30-yr old cheese sauce for 2.0 seconds and sent on your merry way.

Listen, this isn't a serious book. It's kinda like a SNL skit... Yeah, the byline may be a serious topic (ie the president discussing nuclear Iran,) but the premise is jest.

Actual rating: 2.5/5 stars

To be honest, I think I don't get the point of this entire story most of the time while reading it. I mean, I was eager to find out WHY WAS MAY(the female mc) FOLLOWED or TEXTED by a wrong number or TURNED OUT TO BE THE TARGET after that very first night in the bikers' club? all this time; however, not until I flipped through the book was at about 97% of the book did I finally know the truth. To my disappointment, the truth wasn't even fascinating or creative enough
ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by Amazon Publishing in exchange for a honest review.

I’ve read some mixed reviews of this book but I really enjoyed it. I found the inner workings of May’s mind to be hilarious, the unbelievable situations she found herself in ridiculously awesome and Ozzie a mixture of aloof sweetness and holy hotness.

I loved the blend of danger, humour and romance. More than that, May’s inner dialogue kept the story light, even when seriousness was in play.

The Good : I have a soft spot for the screwball comedy. The slightly ditzy heroine who’s convinced she’s right, even when she’s horribly wrong? The one who stumbles into danger and yet it all works out for her? Depending on how it’s done, I can get behind that. It can be fun, escapist fantasy, and that’s what this book is - kinda crazy but fun with a dash of romance. I’ve enjoyed Ms. Casey’s writing in the past (I enjoyed Shine Not Burn), and this is has her humor all over it. It

I really liked this one, the world building was amazing ad though the romance takes a little bit to start the story was so good and the tension between them was there enough to make me not mind. I do wish we had gotten more Ozzie and May time together(relationship wise) but all in all it worked even though I will say their relationship(even though it takes a while percentage wise) felt fast to me.

I listed on audible free via my KU membership.

On the one hand the heroine as funny a mix of clueless and legally blonde. But I can only take that for so long and it got OLD!

On the other, the hero was so strange (to me) and I had zero understanding of why he liked her at all. They were total opposites and she should have annoyed the shit out of him. He and his peeps were all a bit strange and made n
Sometimes being in the wrong place at the wrong time pays off. Wrong Number, Right Guy was a hilarious read. Right from the first page I was chuckling at the auto-correct text messages. The laughs continued as our heroine thought she was corresponding with her sister, only to find out she had gotten mixed up in some scary stuff. Lucky for May, she was texting Oz who was staking out a biker bar. He helps her out when the bad guys start chasing her.
