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 for their boots. Layla is dating Adam but he doesn't seem to have the time for her anymore and she becomes suspicious of his texting habits. On one of their date nights, Adam leaves his phone on the table and Layla can't help herself. Unfortunately for her, he's sexting another girl. Layla decides to take her number but ends up with someone else's. She ends up texting a mystery guy. I'm sure you can guess who, but this works out perfectly for these two. They get to know each other without the pressure. I really liked these two chapters they both had a lot to offer. The story was really interesting and had me hooked. I found the ex-boyfriend a little annoying but overall this book gets a thumbs up from me. It has the usual high school drama, a little bullying and some not very nice friends. Tyler is the perfect gentleman when he's texting Layla all he has to do is get her to see him. 4.5 stars out of 5. I read this book via kindle unlimited and have already downloaded the follow up 1.5 story.

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 numbers and instead sends a text to Tyler, a football player at her school. Now, Tyler and Layla know each other but it's not pretty - and it hasn't been since Tyler put a toad in Layla's lunchbox in the first grade. But Layla and Tyler continue texting each other under fake names and all of a sudden, there's something much more on the line. I thought the plot for this was really cute! It's not an original premise by any means, but the author was able to take a well-known cliche and put their own spin on it. From the very beginning I was invested in the story and I really liked how their romance played out. I did think that the ending (more precisely the last 20%) was a little rushed, and because I'm a sucker for "big reveal" scenes, I wish the one in this book was more fleshed out and dramatic. The writing there dwindled a bit and I didn't think the climax was as heart-stopping as I had hoped. I really liked the character development though! To be honest, I thought Layla was quite obnoxious at the beginning, but I enjoyed how she grew into herself as the story continued. Tyler, too, was likable - he was cocky, but he wore it well and came across as charming instead. There are other characters that I wish were explored more, such as Juliet or the parents - as I really love reading about family dynamics in YA books - but I do feel as though we're being set up for book two, so I'm sure there's more to come. The writing might've been the most problematic part for me. Overall, I thought that the writing style itself was the typical YA style writing - it was straightforward and engaging. However, there were lots of errors that could've been avoided with more careful editing. There were sentence fragments ("Rachel flip out because she has a major crush on Jared.") and incorrect uses of they're/their ("'They're voices are terrible,' Juliet says loudly."). There were also some formatting errors where narration was typed out in the "texting font." Another slight issue for me was with the texting style - understandably people use shortcuts while texting, but I felt like sometimes the text-speech went overboard. Overall, however, I still enjoyed reading this book - it was definitely a quick read and I think it would be suitable for anyone looking for a light-hearted chick lit!

Something about this book (maybe it is the sisters) reminds me of 10 Things I hate about you..   Everything about the h started to itritate me. She was completely irrational and childish. This book was a big no for me. I think it had huge potential with the storyline and the texting idea but everything just fell flat. The texting was boring and shallow. I would not reccomend.

All of them are flawed characters, which make them realistic teenagers. I love that they know these flaws and works on it, if not know, then learn them. I love their headstrong attitudes and they are proud of it! I also love the pace of the story. I have to admit that not all of it are about Layla and Tyler, but that's why I love it. Not only does it introduce new characters and stories for the next books in the series, but it also shows the importance of friendship and sisterhood. If there's anything I didn't like, it was the ending... It was quite cliche. I mean, it was okay. But I just thought it could be better. In all totality, I love the book. Really great, fluffy read. And I'm definitely going to watch out for more of the stories of the series.

He certainly deserve everything, that happened to him. One night on date, she discovers that he was cheating on her and tries to text the girl, but because if dyslexia she makes mistake and text complete stranger. The text back and forth for long time. Other narrator is Tyler. He is football player and bit of a class clown, but there is more to him. He is caring, and sweet and doesn't have perfect home life. He and Layla are always at each other throat. But that might change :D. I just love it. It is really cute story, that pull you in form the first page. Perfect summer book.

    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. Right Text, 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. Right Text, Wrong Number is the first book in the Off sides series. It a young adult novel and I was personally excited to see how this trope would work in a high school setting. Now that I’ve finished the book, I can say I’m a tad disappointed. What I liked: Obviously, I loved the concept of texting the wrong number and that turning into a friendship and perhaps something more. Tyler but not like the actual Tyler in the book but the guy he was texting. DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE? via GIPHY Juliet and Jared. They were basically the saving grace of this book. It was kind of a text to lovers meets enemies to lovers and that was pretty awesome. It was a quick, light read. What I disliked. via GIPHY (Take a seat, grab a cup of tea or whatever you drink, this is going to take a while). Layla. She was our main character and honestly she was a terrible human being. I felt like there was just no redeeming her whatsoever. Even though Taylor wasn’t all that better, he deserved better. Layla’s best friend Rachel, honestly with friends like that you really don’t need enemies. The texting! So, I looked up when this book was published and it says it was in 2017. The texts read like this: I c u l8r. Look, I use to text like that maybe 10 years ago and if you’re my age you know about T9 and things like that. But for a book to be published in and set in 2017, I felt like the author didn’t even check to see if teens today still text like that. Layla is dyslexic and I felt like that this was used as a reason for Layla to be a total bitch. I felt like it wasn’t woven into the story properly. I only found one other review that had a similar view to mine and you can read her review here. Layla also felt a bit abusive to me. Not only was she a bitch because of her learning disability but also she was also so mean to her sister. She allowed her best friend to make fun of her sister and even joined in. She was also abusive to Taylor, she throws his phone out of his hand for no reason, and she dumps lemonade or something on his head. And those are just the instances I can name. TRIGGER WARNING: STALKING/ DATING ABUSE/ DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Adam is Layla’s ex boyfriend and basically the main reason for this story. He is basically stalking Layla, he even goes as far to corner her in various situations. It is highly uncomfortable. I felt like this could have been an amazing opportunity to shine some light on dating violence amongst teens but it wasn’t. Honestly, it was used more as a plot device to get Taylor and Layla in situations together. It is such a serious issue that I felt like it could’ve been handled better. The slut shaming. Taylor and his friends say girls are jersey chasers, I’m pretty sure my eyes rolled so far back into my head. Ya’ll in high school not the NFL SETTLE DOWN NOW. But anyway, there is a ton of slut shaming and I felt like this was another good opportunity to teach about safe sex but again it wasn’t. It seemed very judgmental that the guys could sleep with every girl but a girl couldn’t do the same. The story overall felt like poor exestuation and came off very immature. I’m not saying high schoolers are the most mature on earth but I can almost guarantee they are a little more mature then the characters in this book. These characters were so childish that I felt like they were more middle schoolers then high schoolers. I also felt like besides this story being about Taylor and Layla it was also a major set up for Juliet and Jared’s story. It seemed to focus on their story more then Taylor and Layla’s at time. Overall, this was an all right read. I do plan on reading Juliet and Jared’s story just because I’m curious but I don’t have super high expectations for it. If you are looking for something quick to read, this could do the trick. But you won't be missing anything if you skip this. This review summed up in a gif: via GIPHY

    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.

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. Although the plot seemed a bit cliched, I was totally engaged to the story. The characters are quiet fun and I loved the sweet budding romance between Layla and Tyler. There’s also so much drama in this book and I can’t believe that I actually enjoyed it because I usually hate too much drama in YA contemporary books. The story follows two high school students Layla and Tyler who are not only complete opposites they also pretty much hate each other’s presence. Layla is a cheerleader who thinks Tyler is a Jerk. Tyler is a star football player of their school and he thinks Layla is someone who thinks too highly of herself and everyone should bow down to her. When Layla finds her longtime boyfriend Adam sexting with some other girl, she lashes out her feelings of rage through a txt message to the girl but unfortunately, she sends it to a wrong number because of her Dyslexia problem that only few members know about it. The wrong number turns out to be Tyler’s number. When he sees a message from an unknown number in his phone, he plays along for a while for fun but later he reveals that she’s got a wrong number. From then on, they start chatting with each other using fake names but they’re still unaware of each other’s identity. In school, they always clash with each other but when they chat on phone, they act like they’re best pals in the world. Slowly their friendly relationship grows into something more and they both start to develop feelings for each other but what will happen when Layla finally finds out that she’s been falling in love with her nemesis. I liked both the main characters in the book. I enjoyed Layla’s character but sometimes I hated her bitchiness towards Tyler. I’ve never met a character who has a Dyslexic problem and how they deal with it. Layla hides her problem from everyone because she’s afraid everyone would treat her as someone stupid. But despite her insecurities, she always stood strong and never let them hold her back which is something I loved about her. I loved Tyler! He is fun, sweet, sexy and totally swoon worthy guy with a good heart. Everyone knows him as a star football player who loves partying but they don’t know about the real him. I loved how Layla and Tyler’s relationship began with the wrong number. They both make a connection with each other by bringing their real selves in the online chat and sharing their issues that they never told anyone. I absolutely enjoyed their online sweet romance and also the offline clashing between them. People who love hate to love romance will definitely have fun reading this book. I also liked secondary characters especially Juliet, Layla’s twin. I loved the sibling relationship between them. I didn’t liked Julia’s best friend Rachel because of her extreme rudeness towards Juliet. The plot is entertaining and also a bit cliched but still I enjoyed it. I loved the whole teen drama, angst and sweet romance. The story made me laugh, angry, frustrated and sad. I wish there was more sexy scenes between Layla and Tyler. Whenever they meet, I really can’t help myself from grinning. The pacing is pretty good and It never left me bored. My only issue with this book was the last twenty percent of the book which seemed a bit messy otherwise I would’ve given it a four star. I loved the dual POV of the book and also the witty writing style of the author. It was easy to understand and I flew through it without any struggle. Overall, I loved it! I had lots of fun reading this book and I might check out the next book in the series which is Juliet’s story.

    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. RIGHT TEXT WRONG NUMBER is about two people who see 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. RIGHT TEXT WRONG NUMBER is about two people who seem to be utterly wrong for each other on the surface, but deep down, they have more in common than either realizes. When Layla, a teen with dyslexia, accidentally texts the wrong number, she and the recipient of that text engage in a flirtatious screen-ship with no future. Until both of them realize they want more. The gentle and honest way the author addresses Layla's learning disability is one of my favorite aspects of the story. Layla's relationship with her identical twin sister, Juliet, is another favorite. As the mother of identical twins, the complex relationship of such close siblings is something I'd like to read more of in young adult fiction. Plot The plot centers around the relationship of Tyler and Layla. In real life, they hate each other. Or at least that's what we're led to believe. But things are far from black and white with these two. Their secret texting life is something completely different. Without reality getting in the way, they're able to communicate on another, deeper, level, and learn more about the other. Except they don't realize who they're texting. So many things can potentially go hilariously wrong, that of course they do. The Characters Tyler and Layla are complex characters with rich backstories and solid flaws that make them fascinating. Unfortunately, Layla's ex-boyfriend, Adam and a few of the female characters came across as stereotypical and two-dimensional. The clingy girl in the second half of the story was especially so. Because this is Tyler and Layla's story, I could ignore those secondary characters to a point, but they influence the actions of the main characters enough that they can't really be ignored for long. Top Five Things I Enjoyed About RIGHT TEXT WRONG NUMBER 1. Angsty teen romance. My favorite kind of romance. This is a 10 on the angst scale. 2. Learning disabilities. The author handles Layla's dyslexia with honesty and heart. 3. Twins. As the mother of identical twins, I love the relationship Layla has with her identical twin sister, Juliet. Although mine are far more alike personality wise than these two, their special bond rang completely true to me. 4. Juliet. The loveable nerd is so much like my daughter, I took an instant like to her and can't wait to read her story next. 5. Texting first. I love the idea of these two getting to know one another through written words before the whole physical attraction bit could get in the way. Bottom Line A cute, angsty teen romance.

    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.

So when he gets a mysterious text, he can't help but play along. He finally tells the mysterious person that he's not who she thought she was texting and the two begin a friendly anonymous, texting relationship, with no personal information exchanged. The two actually know each other in real life and have a "hate" relationship, until he figures out who it is that he's texting. I needed something light to read and the blurb grabbed me. I don't usually read YA books, but I couldn't resist. And I'm so glad I read it. It was great! I read it in one day because I could put it down. The author really delved into the high school scene today. Everyone texting, no one talking, everyone is trying to impress someone while secretly having insecurities and problems. I grew up watching The Breakfast Club, and I related because I was those teens. As I grew, I still had the secret love of watching She's All That and Ten Things I Hate About You. The author and this book did what those movies did - I became invested in these characters, with their struggles, with their hope of finding romance, all while learning to be themselves. 5-stars!

    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 I was so excited to read this book when I saw the blurb.

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 incomplete, with the rest of the thought still residing in the author's head and she just forgot to type it out, or she just typed it out the wrong way. I'm used to seeing errors in books because, hey, we're all human! And I might have felt better about it had this been a strictly self-published book, but I see there is an actual publisher attached to this, so I guess I'm just confused how all these errors slipped through the cracks... -Layla's best friend, Rachel, is a terrible best friend. Maybe the book should get kudos for going against the grain of every other YA contemporary romance on the market that has the super-loveable BFF sidekick, but because it was so hard to like Rachel, it almost makes it hard to like Layla because she's willing to hang around somebody who craps on her twin sister all the time and does other horrible things. -The ending. The pre-epilogue ending was anti-climactic, and then the epilogue itself ends so abruptly that, yeah, obviously we're being set up for book 2 in the series, but it makes me feel like I didn't get a complete book. It felt like more of a chapter-ender in the middle of a book instead of the end of the entire book. In my opinion, it just didn't pay off. Here's what I did like, though: -The premise is super-cute. It could have been executed better, but still, it was enjoyable to read about. -The handling of Layla's disability was done fairly well and helped to make her a mostly-likeable MC (even though she could be really immature and catty sometimes). -Tyler, while being hot and one of the most popular guys at their school, didn't overdo it with the arrogant narration in his chapters. A lot of novels these days with the Hero's POV just loooooove to make these guys come across as cocky as possible - to the point you want to reach into the book and strangle them - but I never wanted to strangle Tyler once, which I guess is a good sign. Although, I will say, the author kind of overdid it with how wealthy and successful his entire family is. Overall, this isn't a bad book. I debated on whether to give it 2 or 3 stars, when what I actually want to give it is 2.5 stars. I settled on 3 because I'm feeling generous. Would I recommend this book to somebody else? Probably not. Did I feel like I wasted my time reading it? No, it was enjoyable for what it was. Hopefully someday, especially if it's going to be published in paperback at any point, it goes through the proper editing process, because if it did, it would be more of a 4-star rating for me.

    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 four stars, was because I felt Layla's bratty treatment towards Tyler before "the reveal" went on WAY too long even after he'd started treating her differently. Ultimately they'd both fed off of each other's attitudes in public. The minute Tyler had started to change (even subtly), I believe Layla would have subconsciously started to back off, too. Either way, I came away in a happier place after this read and that's really all I can ask for. Recommended for all enemies-to-lovers fans looking for a quick read.

Both of us are now eagerly anticipating the next relase of the Offsides Series.

    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. This story is ridiculously adorable.

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 her own and create fun characters that helped make it an enjoyable read. Although I found myself relating to her twin sister Juliet more, I thought Layla was alright. She had a lot of moments where I felt her animosity towards Tyler was childish and uncalled for (seriously, who holds grudges from the first grade?), and her stubbornness caused several eye-rolls, but I enjoyed seeing her character development throughout the story, especially when it came to relationships and love. Adam was absolutely terrible; in addition to cheating on her, he constantly belittled her for her dyslexia. I felt so awful for Layla for not only dating the asshole, but for going through the drama he put her through after she finally broke up with him. There were some moments where I was seriously concerned for her safety. Thankfully, with Tyler's help, Layla was able to end the toxic relationship she was in and stand her ground whenever Adam tried to get her back. On the surface, Tyler is the stereotypical gorgeous but arrogant football player. Below the surface, however, he's witty, smart, caring, sweet, charming, and has a temper to match Layla's stubbornness. The exact foil to Adam, Tyler is respectful to girls, never makes fun of, or belittles, Layla for her learning disorder and - after he starts falling for her - always has her best interests in mind. The conflict between him and Layla in the first half of the book became annoying after a while; I was so relieved when he was finally trying to make peace with her in real life after he acknowledged his growing feelings for her. I wish there were more sweet scenes between them in person though! Having that would have helped ease the mounting irritation of their squabbles in person. Overall, seeing the slow development in their relationship was fun to see and it was so amusing how complications started to arise due to their texting and pretending to not be themselves. Juliet was, by far, my favorite character because I could relate to her so much. I wish we had more glimpses into her life, but after finishing the book I realized that it was intentional because her story is likely the next book in the series. She is considered to be the "weird" outcast between her and her sister Layla because she's a nerd. While Layla is the popular cheerleader and social butterfly, Juliet refuses to blend into the crowd and is more aware of her identity than most of the teenagers in the school. I loved how openly nerdy Juliet is and how she's not shamed to be herself - even strives to show it whenever she can because she believes in always being true to yourself. The writing was engaging and easy to follow, but needed more editing and polishing up. There were several instances where simple errors could have been avoided if there were just more proofreading. There were also a few inconsistencies in storytelling, which is always amusing and frustrating to catch. It was nothing major but just a pet peeve I can't help but notice when I'm reading. In one scene during Tyler's perspective, Layla ordered a burger and fries, but immediately afterwards in Layla's point-of-view, she also suddenly had a chocolate shake. Only seconds had passed since the perspectives changed so it was highly unlikely that she had ordered one while he was not around. Again, minor thing that wasn't a big deal but just bothered me. Starting from the climax all the way to the conclusion of the book, I felt underwhelmed. I expected way more drama for the big reveal and a lot of repercussions to follow, but nothing major really happened besides the fact that their true identities were revealed to each other. As sweet as the scene between the sisters was, the reconciliation scene that followed was so disappointing that it downplayed the impact of Tyler's gesture, especially with that rushed and lackluster ending to their story. I wanted to feel compelled to read the next book in the series, especially because I adore Juliet so much, but at this point I was too disappointed to feel anything else. Overall, "Right Text. Wrong Number" was a cute, enjoyable, lighthearted read with an entertaining cast of main characters placed in an amusing situation. Not so bad for a start to a series, but nothing spectacular or particularly memorable either.

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. The Plot: Layla is the popular twin, dating a football player. Then she finds out that football player is cheating on her. She sends a scathing text to the phone number she thought was the girl he is fooling around with, but she typed in the number wrong. This happenstance leads to the friendship between her and the boy on the other end of the phone line...she goes by the fake name "Faye" with him, and he goes by "R." It turns out the boy is none other than Tyler, the guy she fights like cats and dogs with. Tyler begins to suspect who "Faye" really is, but he's afraid to tell her his true identity. He enjoys their friendship and doesn't want Layla to pull away when she realizes who she's been opening up to. Now, Tyler tries to be a nicer guy to her in person, too. He wants he to like him for who he really is. All-in-all, this is a modern retelling of the plot to the movie Shop Around the Corner. What I Did Like: I think the best part of the writing was from the male point-of-view. The author did a good job of tapping into a high school guy's mind. The main male character, Tyler, was quite believable because he wasn't a saint by any means, yet he still was respectful of women and had boundaries. That sort of common decency is something that all young people need to see. The author also did a good job of having the characters slowly form feelings for each other over the course of the book instead of it being instantaneous. The relationship was a lot more convincing because of that. The story line of the mystery identities is a plot that I enjoy in books, and it was decently well-done here. What I Didn't Like: As briefly mentioned, lots of errors in this book. Missing, left-out words in sentences. Lack of correct punctuation, or sometimes punctuation in the wrong place. Misspelled words. All of these things were more than just here and there. It was hard to ignore. The ending of the book is very abrupt. The whole book is slow and building, and then it just all happens at once, flatly, quickly, and ends the Tyler and Layla story. The epilogue switches to the other twin's point-of-view, Juliet, then leads into what I'm sure is the start of Book 2, with Juliet and Jared's story. The ending of the Tyler/Layla story was a big let-down. The author could have at least written a page or two more to finish their story off a bit better. Conclusion: It was a cute, quick read. I finished it all in one night, so I guess that proves it was entertaining. The simple errors just need to be cleaned up. Despite that small annoyance, I enjoyed it. I plan on reading the second book when it is released on Kindle. I'd like to see Jared and Juliet's story, and it'd be nice to see some more of Tyler and Layla's relationship to get a little more closure there.

From that point on I was hooked! Layla is an independent cheerleader with a lot more layers than what she shows on the surface. At first, it seems she is a bit stuck up, but as I continued to read I enjoyed her character so much. She has insecurities when it came to certain things but that made her feel way more relatable. It was even better when she pushed past her insecurities and didn't let them hold her back. She also has a great relationship with her sister, which I thought was the absolute best. When her sister is picked on. Layla stands behind her and always has her back, even if it's her own friends who are doing the picking. Sometimes her naive or stubborn tendencies frustrated me and I just wanted to shake her. But really it was one of the things that made her who she was. Tyler is another character that has way more levels to him then he lets others see. To the kids at school, he's a class clown who only cares about foot ball and partying. They don't see him struggle with his family issues, or how even the party boy sticks to a strict code on how to treat girls. He was a strong character and I loved seeing him fall for Layla and back her up with her dirt bag boyfriend. He's also a great friend, even though he can sometimes be oblivious to things around him. Right Text Wrong Number really was such a joy to read, I couldn't put it down. It made me laugh, made me angry, frustrated, sad, and smile with glee. It had so much more going on than just the budding romance between Layla and Tyler which was another thing that made it great as well. And for those that love the drama, well it had that in truck loads. It's definitely one that needs to be read by all who are a fan of contemporary teen romances. Five stars to you Natalie Decker, keep it coming!

I am going to tell you something about the book Right Text Wrong Number (Offsides, #1). I would definitely give this book 5 stars. Because this isn't just a story, this is a story that has a background, a story about how life goes, a story that can end in different ways, a story that can take place anywhere and everywhere.

Because this isn't just a story, this is a story that has a background, a story about how life goes, a story that can end in different ways, a story that can take place anywhere and everywhere. When I saw this book I first read the backside, I thought it was predictable at first glance. But when I started reading it I was wrong, it pulls you into the story it's like you are Layla. I think this title is a good title because, there is a girl named Layla and she caught her boyfriend Adam cheating on her. She found out when they were on a date and he got a text. She saved the number of that girl, and when she got home she texted her. But she made a mistake with saving the number she texted a boy, and it was the boy she hated the most... She didn’t know because they both used undercover names. And this is where the title comes from. If I could change something in the book I would not change anything because I really like the way how it goes. My favourite part of the book is the part where Layla gave Adam a bitch-clap and kicked him in his privates. The funniest part is that Adam keeps trying to get Layla back but everytime he gets slapped or gets kicked in his private. It is my favourite because it shows you how life really goes, that not everything has a happy ending for everyone. I really want to know how it is to be Layla, because I want to know how it feels and how you get to know that hate can turn into love. This was my review about this book I hope I could tell you something about this book. And I hope you will like the book as much as I do.

Although this is high school it addresses some things that could happen in college or another time, it also shows you never know who your meant for- they could be right under your nose. Dramatic, a little tearful, inner dialogue, it's a cute read. Clean read too. Though it could change- and I don't mind that either. Jared being secretly in love with Juliet and Mark stepping in is similar to Adam and Layla. It's tough to see these twins hurt. But the guys they are meant for are so close. Too short of ending for Layla and Tyler- do they work out, is it only high school love or true love? Do they have a future past school? What does their families think? Do they get physical- or is she not ready? The epilogue sucks- Mark shouldn't have kissed or danced with the other girl. It may have been Serena as I suspect, and he may actually like Juliet but he screwed up. This alone shows their not meant to be anymore. Will Jared finally be there to heal her heart? Or will he miss his chance again? What will happen with his family life if he does try and be with Juliet?- will she even return his feelings? This book leaves me curious for answers. Hopefully the next book solves them.

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 him is and a battle will start between keeping their “text friendship” and appearances in school. High school drama is all over this story. From parents too busy to care for their children, or children hiding from them to girl problems and betrayed friendships, this is your average love trouble any 16 year old may face. I liked how the couple behaved towards one another and how they came to learn things about each other. However, I think towards the end the action dragged a little. They were still arguing when things were pretty clear. The book scores points from my end as it raises awareness towards the behavior teenagers have lately and how girls become easy (I hope I am allowed to use this term) and treat some intimate things lightly. But what most captured my attention was the fact that Layla is dyslexic. The author pointed out her struggle with coping with her problem and as well dealing with gossip about her not being able to read or write. All in all, I am giving this book 3.5 stars (rounded to 4, only for these bonus points) and I do recommend it for a nice and quick read.

    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 loved the hil Right Text, Wrong Number is all kinds of dramatic YA fun.

I was desperate for her to wake up and give Tyler a chance. I loved the hilarious ranting then flirty texts between Layla and her mystery guy *ahem* Tyler. For his part Tyler is used to being judged. He's a player. He's a joker who doesn't take life seriously. He only cares about himself. Right? No not really. He's actually pretty sweet and caring. Right Text, Wrong Number is a coming of age story. It sends a very clear message about being true to yourself and not misjudging people. Rachel could do with a lesson in this! I loved Juliet and would have liked to see more of her. It was good to see Layla develop into more of a free spirit. Whilst she does spend a lot of time squabbling with Tyler, I really felt as though they supported each other and were a good team. Oh the ending. I know something was going to happen but not that! Can we have book two now please?! 4 Stars in my Sky! I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

    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. Though the story I think the editor of this book needs to work on their reviewing skills.

I know that I personally think that the book is WAY too revolved around the idea of texting. Perhaps its because I'm of the 90's generation that grew up without texting and smart phones. I just feel that that's really all the book was... two people texting each other back and forth. This may be interesting to some but it just didn't blow my skirt up. Perhaps this is written for the younger generations to enjoy. I'm not quite sure. However I'm sure that a younger person would probably get more out of it than I did. After this book gets recalled and retyped without all the errors, I would recommend this book to the right person. The story is cute.
