It all started with a sexy selfie.

Texted to the wrong number.


Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.

She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.

It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.

The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.

When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you're not tracking.

And let’s just say she had my full attention.

Brains? Check.

Beauty? Oh yeah.

And the best part? She hated me on sight.

Dear God, do I love a challenge.

Let the games begin.

What happens when you text a sexy selfie to the wrong number !!! Well that’s how this extremely entertaining book starts and for me the title says it all but this book is so much more than just a funny read, it has characters you will fall into in love with as they bear their heart and souls to each other. This book ticked every box for me the chemistry is sizzling, the banter is witty but more importantly it everything flows, the story was a heartfelt entertaining read and I didn’t want this book to end because I was captivated and I was engrossed in Josh and Peyton and oh let’s not forget grandma who will have you snorting out loud with her one liners. Wonderful characters with charisma with plenty of flirting all help to make this the perfect read. Another great read from the very talented Kendall Ryan.

When Josh sends a provocative picture to a number, he thinks it’s the girl he’s been chatting with on a dating app. When the reply is who’s this he realizes he has been duped. To make matters worse the girl he sent it to is involved with his company. Super sexy fun read. Peyton is a great heroine. Her feisty grandma adds some fun. I liked how driven she is. Josh is the perfect blend of hot and sweet. The book is a fun and flirty romance. Really enjoyable and well written.

Junk Mail by Kendall Ryan is a flirty and fun read. Josh Hanson has had a dry spell, in his love life at least. When he sends a rather intimate picture to someone who he has been messaging online, things go awry. Very awry. First off the woman who gets the text is not the one who he was chatting with. Second she seems quite intriguing, but that bridge is already burned. Third it turns out that she is someone who he will have to be professional with. Very professional, since his company is about to work with hers. Peyton has been so focused on work for the last few years that she hasn't had time to build any sort of relationship with a guy and when she gets a certain text it affects her more than it should. When Josh turns out to be not only the person she is working with but also quite charming, being professional becomes hard. For both of them. This was a quick read and a lot of fun. Peyton and Josh have a lot of chemistry and I like the balance of how their relationship starts. When they run into difficulties it seems a bit forced though and I was glad when Josh fought to get Peyton back and make the special spark between them grow more. Overall I very much recommend Junk Mail by Kendall Ryan, the characters and their connections drew me in. (I voluntarily reviewed an copy of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

A humorous mistaken identity! With her typical charm, Kendall Ryan brings us a fast paced read about a mix-up that turns interesting pretty quickly. I felt like there could have been a bit more banter between the two, especially when the chat was happening, but overall it was a fun read and I enjoyed it! Businessman Josh Hanson has worked hard to achieve all that he has, but he enjoys his downtime just as much ... what there is of it. When a woman he's been chatting with on a dating app asks for an advanced look at the merchandise, he proudly shows off the goods ... but the response he receives is unexpected! Peyton Richards can't believe some dude would just arbitrarily text her like that, but what she's even more shocked over is when she recognizes the guy the next day at a big business meeting about launching her product with theirs! This is going to be interesting.

Junk Mail is utterly adorable; while the basis of the story may be a standard trope within the romance genre, it is the characters Kendall Ryan creates that make it exceptional. Junk Mail is one of those stories you can be assured that fate has to play a part in peoples lives – how else could you explain a risque photo sent to the wrong number turning into a business partnership between the owner of the photo and the un-lucky (LUCKY) recipient Peyton and Josh have both spent the majority of their time building their respective businesses, leaving little time for fun. On the verge of a collaboration that will take both of their businesses to the next level – there is a lot riding on the success of their joint venture. Nothing can jeopardise their success, not even the astronomical levels of heat they give off whenever they are together. While Peyton and Josh are busy fighting their attraction to each other, additional fun and games can be had with Peyton’s quirky grandmother. I want to be her when I grow up To be honest, I didn’t fully understand the repercussions of a relationship between Peyton and Josh would have on their business partnership but I guess it is down to professional ethics and the type of negative spin that other people could apply to their relationship. A huge spanner is thrown into the works on a personal level by Josh’s business partner, Brody, who’s anger at Josh over his obvious attraction to Peyton bordered on suspicious. Follow the spanner with some misunderstandings and lack of communication and you have one hell of a clusterduck. Although I do love a man that can admit when he’s wrong and give good apology Junk Mail is a fun, light-hearted romance with a good amount of sass to put the icing on the cake

Kendall Ryan knows how to deliver a great romantic comedy and Junk Mail was no different. From the cover to the synopsis, I was hooked from the very start and it didn’t disappoint at all. As the co-owner of Wine O’Clock, Josh Hanson is always looking to add new and fresh businesses to partner up with so he is very eager to find out about his potential new business partner. Having started the company from the ground up with his best friend, Josh is always giving work his all without leaving any time for a relationship. That is why he uses a dating app in hopes of meeting new people, but that ends up horribly wrong when he is asked to take a sexy selfie and sends it to the wrong number. What surprises him the most is how he gets a reply from someone named Peyton and he can’t get her out of his mind after they exchange a few texts back and forth. But just when he is about to meet his new business partner, she tells him her name and they both realize who they are and things get interesting after that. They have instant chemistry, but being business partners could damage their relationship and he’ll have to decide if it’s worth it or not. Peyton Richards has always wanted to start her own business and that’s how she started Wish Upon A Gift. Subscription boxes for every occasion and it has done pretty well. But what has her even more exited is the fact that Wine O’Clock has expressed interest in wanting to have her boxes in stores. This could be huge for her and wanting to provide for her grandmother is also what is driving her to succeed even more. But it’s the sexy selfie that has her hot all over and she can’t stop thinking about Josh. Peyton is aware that her business in on the line, but Josh has shown so much affection for her and her grandmother that it’s impossible for her lot let go. Until things get completed that she starts to question her decisions of whether or not it’s worth fighting for their relationship or not. I cannot say enough good things about this book, it was witty and funny. I loved Peyton’s grandmother, she is total badass and the coolest for sure. It’s evident that Josh and Peyton have an instant chemistry and the sexy selfie is just the beginning for the two of them to explore a possible relationship. All in all, if you are looking for a quick romantic book filled with swoon worthy moments then I would highly recommend reading this book. You are going to love the ending!

Josh and Peyton may have just grabbed the top spot for my favorite Kendall Ryan couples! I just love them! Not only did I fall in love with the main characters, but Gram as a secondary character just rounded out this book. She's simply amazing in all her push you out of your box glory! This is another Kendall book that will grab you from the very beginning and have you reading till the very end in one setting. From one racy text, to a relationship, it's funny where fate can take you! Definitely recommend this book to any and everyone!

This was super cute, and I really enjoyed it. I’m giving it 4 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion. When I read the summary for this one, I was beyond exciting. It sounded amazing, and thankfully it lived up to my expectations. However, I would say the plot didn’t exactly follow what I expected based on the summary. I really liked both Peyton and Josh, but I have to admit that Gram is probably my favorite character. She was just so funny, entertaining, and her meddling made me smile. I also really liked Claire and her kids. This book definitely had steam, but based on their professional relationship, it didn’t have as much as another book might have. Being coworkers and dealing with budding feelings would be tricky for anyone to navigate! But back to Peyton and Josh. I think I would be friends with Peyton in real life; she seemed like a great person. And Josh…he was so sweet, handsome, thoughtful, etc. I swooned hardcore over him for the entire book. He’s going on my book boyfriend list. I loved learning a little about each of their businesses, but I kind of wanted even more on that. Details were mentioned, but then it was like they almost didn’t have jobs for most of the book. And for someone being Josh’s best friend (and business partner), Brody sucked. Sorry, not sorry. I finished this in two nights as Kendall’s books are always quick, enjoyable reads.

Josh Hanson is a sexy, wealthy, single, successful businessman. Which would lead one to believe that he is swimming in dates, but that really isn't the case at all... it has been a long while since his last! So, when he signs into his dating app, meets an intriguing woman with great conversation skills, he can't help but want to see where things between them will lead. She surprises him by getting down and dirty, and requests a photo of his member. He reluctantly obliges, but what happens next is something he was not prepared for... at all! With one little tap on the screen he has taken his love life from non-existent, to promising...very, very, promising! That is until he realizes that his "member" photo has landed into the hands of his newest client... and everyone knows mixing business with pleasure is a huge no-no! From the very first page Junk Mail had me smiling, and with each page that followed things just continued to get better and better! You know you have found a good story when your barely a chapter into it and you have a case of the giggles, and an unshakable smile on your face... this story was downright spectacular! These two lovebirds made me giggle with their dirty business innuendos, warmed my heart their genuine affection for one another, and made me blush with their secret little "business" meetings! Loved every single second of this one, the story line was mesmerizing, the words were perfectly penned, and the characters were unforgettable... another outstanding romance from Ms. Ryan! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest and unbiased opinion

I love when the attraction between two people is established by something other than their looks, and while Peyton Richards may have been drawn to Josh Hanson due to a sexy selfie gone wrong and a fake phone number, the quick witted text exchange that they share creates a connection unlike one either has experienced and one that just might be worth the risk…that is until they find out that their soon-to-be professional relationship makes anything personal between them not exactly forbidden but quite ill-advised. Thus begins a partnership full of complications due to a bevy of sexual tension, a more than apparent electric connection, and a professional line that both Peyton and Josh can’t help but want to cross, even if it’s less than ideal given their professional commitments. Who would have thought that a sexy selfie gone wrong and a fake phone number would lead Josh Hanson and Peyton Richards down a complicated path - one full of sexual tension, an electric connection, and a professional partnership that just turned their personal lives upside down. It’s interesting to watch Josh and Peyton figure out what they want and what they’re willing to risk in order to take their shot at love. I’m glad that Kendall Ryan allows readers to be privy to both the hero and the heroine’s internal musings because it offers a full picture of what’s at stake, both personally and professionally, for them and for those who rely on them. Both of them have good heads on their shoulders and understand what it means to sacrifice for their career, but they also deserve a personal life and the fact that they are drawn to each other so intensely provides them with enough desire to perhaps find a way to make both parts of their lives flow seamlessly together in a way that benefits them in all ways possible. Kendall Ryan, once again, weaves a bit of drama, a large dose of humor, and quite a bit of steam together to create an enjoyable romantic comedy - one that includes a group of dynamic supporting characters, especially a certain meddling grandma who is as endearing as she is frustrating, at least from her granddaughter’s perspective. The way Josh and Peyton first meet and their attempts to remain professional illustrate why it was always going to be more than business between them and the way Ryan crafts the story in that direction will have readers laughing and swooning a number of times through Junk Mail. 4 Poison Apples

A feel-good, forbidden romance filled with laughs, charm, and an overabundance of steam! Kendall Ryan gives readers another exemplary story with it’s originality and fresh and hilarious outlook on sexting gone wrong….or very, very right in this book. *wink* Josh and Peyton were adorable! Their insta-chemistry was perfect for the story line, given how complicated it makes their professional partnership. Their flirty interactions and sizzling attraction provide the plot its intrigue and fascination, allowing the reader to feel engaged with the forbidden quality and outcome of their relationship. But as fun and light-hearted as the overall tone of the story is, misunderstandings and miscommunication reveal that even the most effortless romances aren’t without its own complications. Junk Mail is sexy! It’s lively and comedic dialogue pairs perfectly with the witty and entertaining story line that makes this book a for-sure must read!

What a fun fast read! I couldn't put it down until the end. I really loved the premise of this story, a picture sent to the wrong number sets this whole story in motion. The chemistry between Peyton and Josh is fantastically hot! I loved the humor between them and the innuendos were fabulous! They tried so hard to keep things professional between them and you have to give props for that! I enjoyed the bit of angst, I think every good story should have that and this was perfectly played. The secondary characters were fabulous and brought so much more to the story.  Grams gave such humor and I loved her forever young attitude! We all need a grandma like that! If you are looking for a fresh story with heart, heat and humor, look no further! I can't wait to see what Ms. Ryan comes out with next!

Junk Mail was quite entertaining! How Peyton and Josh first "meet" is hilarious! I enjoyed that concept as well as the rest of the storyline. I enjoyed their relationship and how it develops. They're both interesting characters who work too much, and don't have time for a real relationship. I think they're cute together and very fitting for one another. Gram is a hoot! She's so spunky and hip for an 82 year old, I love her. She added even more entertainment to the book. Junk Mail was an enjoyable read!

Junk Mail has to be some of Kendall Ryan's best work yet! Not to mention that cover... who can walk by that gorgeous thing and not want to pick it... read the blurb or the first chapter? You'd have to have mystical powers to walk by that beauty without feeling interest, without a spark. I think I've said this for Miss Ryan's last few books but Junk Mail is hilarious. There's so much awkward, inappropriateness that I snorted... yes, I snorted with laughter. Kendall Ryan has a vicious and surprising humor. She sneaks up on you and causes barks of laughter. So, I think you get from the paragraph above that I was delighted with Peyton and Josh's story. The Grams in this story is just what we all want in an overly-nosy busy body that is wildly improper but insanely entertaining. I was seriously enamored with the storyline and can see the plausibility in the storyline. Which is really what made the story seem so light and fun to begin with. Plus with these two fighting the attraction so hard and all the fun back-and-forth banter... it was totally engrossing. Plus I finished it in one evening. I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

OM Josh!!! This is probably the only unsolicited junk picture that might be acceptable. I guarantee any I've received have not had this same outcome. Josh is pretty dang adorable. He was just so sweet and caring but he did have the cockiness but not the d-bag ness that an unsolicited junk pic typically demands. Which he totally recognized that once he found out that he sent it to a different number. And go Peyton for calling him out on it. But yet still talking with him - even flirting. I guess with Josh's embarrassment, it made it obvious that he wasn't the typical d-bag junk mail sender. LOVE JOSH!!!

I flipping loved Josh and Peyton. Their chemistry was off the charts, and their first interactions were beyond entertaining. There was the perfect amount of drama in this story, thanks to a certain best friend (who I would LOVE a story on eventually). This was a well written story, that will have you falling in love with not just Josh and Peyton, but also the secondary characters in this book. I would definitely recommend this read!!

I love reading a Kendall Ryan book because I'm guaranteed a book that will suck me into the story so much so that I can't and won't put it down until I see the words "The End". Josh and Peyton were nothing short of hilarious, witty banter and explosive chemistry. How can you go wrong with an inappropriate pic to the wrong number, sexy texts, an attraction to a potential business partner and a grandmother who intervenes when she feels it's necessary...... you just can't, so grab your copy of this fun sexy read now!

Some people say a picture is worth a thousand words. The picture Peyton received on her phone left her speechless. Especially when the sender turned out to be her prospective business partner. Aside from this picture though they had great chemistry from the first time they met. There was no awkwardness between them. They tried to keep it professional but sometimes sparks fly and things ignite. Once again Kendall Ryan delivers a story so enjoyable to read. You cannot put it down. From Gram to her two best friends this story will keep you glued to every word. Peyton and Josh have such a great chemistry. When they work together great things happen. They are both 2 professionals and know how to get things done. But they also work together personally. Can they separate the two? Will their attraction prevent them from moving ahead professionally. Will Josh be objective and not let his attraction effect her launch? Can they be involved with each other and work together and not allow any lines to cross? Kendall Ryan has the great ability to create these characters and show how anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

4.5 Stars!! Who would have known that a sexy text sent to the wrong person, would turn your entire world upside down, leaving you chasing the most epic love of all…. Words can not even begin to express how much I adored Peyton and Josh!! Their story hooked me from the very first page and I was honestly powerless in devouring it. I couldn’t put Junk Mail down. Junk Mail is everything that I’m looking for in an office style romantic comedy. The story-line was fresh and entertaining. I couldn’t help but laugh at the initial meeting between Peyton & Josh. Their start was definitely unconventional and once they realized who the other was, well, all bets were off. The pull between Peyton & Josh led to some fantastic will they/won’t they moments that just left me desperate for more. These two tried super hard to keep things strictly business, but their attraction would prove too hard to ignore… Junk Mail was exactly the book I was looking for. It captivated me from the very first page and Josh totally stole my heart. From embarrassing moments to ones that had you laughing out loud. To moments of flirtation, undeniable chemistry, and steamy encounters. To men being men and not realizing that it’s the little details that matter and can lead to terrible miscommunication. This book had it all and had just the right amount of drama, steam, humor and angst. I even adored the side story of Gram & Duncan. Gram was a total hoot and I loved her meddling. I was happy to see her find some love as well. Bottom line: I LOVED Junk Mail. I loved every single moment of this story from beginning to end. I laughed. I swooned. I got annoyed. And in the end, I was left with the biggest smile on my face. Junk Mail was the perfect read to spend my day getting lost in and is definitely a top read from this author.

I'm not too sure where to start. Junk Mail was entertaining with fun to read characters and I just couldn't put it down...The heart and soul of this book blew me away!! What happens when you send an inappropriate pic to the wrong number??? Oh boy.....I laughed more than a few times and the sizzling tension/chemistry between Josh and Peyton was OFF the Charts!!!! You could almost feel the sizzle....I'm not kidding and the heat in this book....So steamy...Oh myyy!!!!! I just loved the banter and Peyton's Gram is an absolute hoot. This book had so many elements that made it an incredible heartwarming story that I didnt want to stop reading. I could read so much more, I just didnt want it to end, and isnt that a sign of a really great book?? I definitely think so!!! Go 1 click and add to your must read list or you are missing out!!

Another super cute story from Kendall!! I really loved Josh and Peyton's chemistry together. This was a super sweet story from the unconventional meet to the beautiful epilogue at the end.

I absolutely enjoyed this book and I loved Josh and Peyton! I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book. From the moment Josh accidentally sent a racy text to a wrong number I knew I was going to love this book. And the fact that Peyton was the recipient of that text and couldn’t delete the pic from her phone. Love her! From the moment these two met in person their chemistry was off the charts! I was so happy to see these two together. Gram was a hoot and she was quite entertaining whenever Peyton or Josh interacted with her. This is definitely a book I would recommend and one that I will also be re-reading!
