Cheerleader Layla and football player Tyler are complete opposites. She thinks he’s the biggest jerk in school and he thinks she's too high on her horse to even be worth a second glance. When the two of them are near one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They can hardly endure speaking, let alone dating.

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down te

Would I let my own 13yr old daughter read this? Yes. There are curse words but there are no F-Bombs. There is a talk of sex and what her friend Rachel has told her about it or one of her hook-ups but there are no sex scenes. The MC's are juniors in high school. So it depends on what you feel is appropriate. I would let my 13yr old read it because she's come home telling me things kids her age talk about and it's worse than what's in my book. But again it's all up to your taste. :)(less)

I am really enjoying the offsides series (I've read them out of order but it doesn't matter too much). Layla and Juliet are twins. Layla is the popular cheerleader and Juliet is her unpopular nerdy sister. I thought Juliet would be my favourite but I like Layla story a little more. Right text Wrong Number is Layla's addition and available on Kindle Unlimited.

Layla Valentine and Tyler Richardson like to rub each other up the wrong way. They can't stand each other and think the other is too big fo

I may be in college now but I'm still a sucker for high school chick lits. And this book was adorable - played around with all my favorite cliches and made it work.

Right Text. Wrong Number. is written in alternating perspectives. There's Layla, a cheerleader who finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her. In an attempt to send a scathing text to the girl at the other end, Layla messes up the phone n

If this was written by a 16 year old I suppose it is ok. If not then I am leaning towards horrible.

Spelling and grammar was terrible. The way they talk irritated me. Do people say 'rents instead of parents? Maybe I am just too old for this.

Childish immature behaviour from h towards H. All.the.time.

She really can't tell his voice over the phone?
The sister's relationship is weird. Can't decide if they like or hate eachother. (Handing her sister a note without saying anything and just walking on

I give this 4.5 stars!

When Layla found out that her boyfriend is cheating on her, she gets the phone number and text the other girl. But Tyler, her archnemisis, was the one who received it!

I heard good things about this book that's why I wanted to dive right in too. I love the plot. I guess you can say that the plot has been used before, but the author definitely made it her own, thus making it remarkable!

I love the characters! All of them are flawed characters, which make them realistic teenage

Received book for in exchange for honest review.

Lately I'm having really good luck with contemporary novels. I have not read one contemporary novel this summer, that wasn't amazing.

This book is just sooo good. I read it in one sitting. The writing is really light and pace paced.

And the story, it just so swoony... (not sure if that is even a word:) ). So, first narrator is Layla, sophomore, cheerleader, really popular and also dyslexic. She is dating Adam, who I hated from the start, and even mo

Such a lovely story, I love how their story developed how they misjudged each other and slowly realized how much they loved each other.
This books really centers on how love is a deep feeling and not about the superficial stuff. How understanding and caring for other is important.

This review was originally posted on As Told By TinaRight Text, Wrong Number was my August #MyTBRList winner. I was kind of hoping this one would win because texting the wrong number and falling in love is kind of one of my favorite tropes. I absolutely loved Text 2 Lovers, which is more NA, but still the trope is the same so anytime a synopsis remotely mentions texting the wrong number and it turning to more…I AM THERE.

Needless to say, I had some pretty high expectations for this.

I'm always here for enemies-to-lovers, but not like this. the leads were are so annoying, and I still don't understand why there were enemies. They get messed up with communications problems in every damn page, at a certain point it just gets boring and you want to yell. The only reason this got 2 stars from me was because I was invested in the twin story. But that didn't even get a resolution, so now I'm trying to decide if I will read another book of the series.

This was such a super fun and cute read! I love reading hate to love romance tropes and I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. The story was both hilarious and romantic. After reading so many fantasy reads, I picked this up for a change in genre and I was looking for something fun. I’m so glad that It didn’t disappoint me because it was so entertaining and nothing too emotionally serious that’ll make me too sad. Altho

This is a cute story with interesting characters, a fair amount of angst, and a decent romance. With a few exceptions, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a few questionable actions by the protagonists at the end that left me frustrated at times, but they weren't bad enough to take away from the things I loved. What did bother me, though is the extreme number of typos in a professionally published book. To the point that they became distracting.

To be expected that there was lots of teenage drama! Not the usual stereotype of the cheerleader and jock being the IT couple. Instead these two were at loggerheads. Was a fun, and surprisingly quick read.

I'm still smiling! Layla is a sixteen year old cheerleader. She's popular and she is dating one of the football players. She has it all, at least from the outside. But everything is not as cheery as it seems. She has dyslexia which she tries to hide from everyone. Then she discovers that her longtime boyfriend has been cheating on her. As a sixteen year old, she decides to text the other girl, but she types in the wrong number.

I was so excited to read this book when I saw the blurb. I LOVE the whole hate-turned-to-love trope, so this seemed right up my alley. And in some ways, it was. In others...not so much. I'll start with what I didn't like about it:

-This book is in some SERIOUS need of editing. Words missing from sentences, the wrong form of words used ("they're" instead of "their"), missing punctuation or punctuation in the wrong spots, or some sentences not even making any sense - almost like the thought was inc

A fun and cute read for enemies-to-lovers fans.

I hadn't been having luck lately with my reads and needed a pick-me-up. I needed sass, nothing too emotional, and a good amount of tension that ended in a happily ever after. I was hoping when I picked this up that I'd get my modern day fix and it delivered.

I also liked how the reveal happened. Kinda one of those "oh, sh-" moments that you really wished you'd be able to catch on camera.

My one real complaint, and probably the reason this didn't get f

My partner and I met over msn, and connected via text message for a number of years, so any book that has text theme always gets me courious. I loved how Lalya and Tyler's relatioship developed through text and how they were able to explore the day to day issues they were facing together. This book did not disapoint if was a fun read with the right balance of chemisty between Lalya and Tyler.

This story is ridiculously adorable. Sometimes it's easier to fall for someone when you meet via words on a screen. I really enjoyed this quick read, the grammar was atrocious. This book clearly needed a better editor. But I adored the characters and the story line so I'm putting my OCD aside for this rating.

Thank you to the author for providing me with an e-book copy for an honest review.

One of my favorite troupes in young adult contemporary romances is falling in love through texting, social media, etc. (bonus points if there's mistaken/secret identities involved as well). That said, I figured there was a good chance I would really enjoy "Right Text. Wrong Number". The concept was not, by any means, an original but Natalie was able to make it he

Honestly, I came to read this book by complete accident. I had accidentally hit the "Read for Free" button on my Kindle Unlimited account. Since I had it, I figured I'd try it.

I'm just going to start by saying I loved Right Text Wrong Number. It starts with almost instant drama between Layla and her boyfriend Adam. She catches him sexting some chick and she tries to fire back at the other girl and winds up text Tyler instead. From that point on I was hooked!

Texting the wrong person after you discover you've been cheated on isn't necessarily the best idea- fortunately it turns out to be someone you know, just not someone you like- Yet.

Tyler and Layla lead a private texting relationship, while Tyler in person realizes he needs to have Layla see the real him.

When the text Tyler and Tyler in person get mixed up things blow up.

Although this is high school it addresses some things that could happen in college or another time, it also shows you never kn

“Right Text Wrong Number” brings us Layla and Tyler, two high school students that can’t stand each other at all. They cannot be in the same room without bullying each other. But when she realizes her boyfriend was cheating on her, she writes a text to a number who is supposed to be the other girl’s. Little did she expect to have that text sent to Tyler. From here on, she finds a mysterious friend with whom she can be completely honest. Pretty soon, he’ll realize who the silly girl that texted h ...more

Right Text, Wrong Number is all kinds of dramatic YA fun. The pacing is quick and breezy, whilst being full of teen angst and romance. It's funny too!

Layla massively undervalues herself. She's the popular cheerleader who is afraid to be anything else. She often finds herself being influenced by others and their opinion of what she should or shouldn't be doing. Oh Adam! Layla is quick to judge not only herself but others. I was desperate for her to wake up and give Tyler a chance.

I think the editor of this book needs to work on their reviewing skills. There are tons of little typos and grammar errors in this book.

The gist of the story is that Layla finds out her boyfriend has been cheating on her when she discovers naked pictures of some girl on his phone. Layla attempts to text the girl but instead ends up texting the guy that she thinks is the biggest jerk in school. They continue to text each other however (under seudo names) and begin a relationship.
