Overview

When a mysterious text message summons May Wexler to a biker bar in downtown New Orleans, she knows something is very wrong. Her sister has sent out an SOS, but when May gets there, she’s nowhere to be found and May is the one in trouble—she’s wearing pink espadrilles, she’s got a Chihuahua in her purse, and she’s in the middle of a shootout.

After tall, muscular Ozzie comes to her rescue, May has no choice but to follow him to safety. At the headquarters of his private security firm, the Bourbon Street Boys, she finds a refuge for the night—and the offer of a job. But it’s not long before a gun-toting stalker isn’t the only complication in May’s life: the more time she spends with Ozzie, the less she can deny that they’ve got some serious chemistry. A wrong number got her into this mess…Will it also get her the right guy?

May Wexler receives an urgent text from her sister from a dive bar downtown called Frankie’s. Responding to the urgent nature of the text, she grabs her mini Chihuahua and rushes out the door. Dressed inappropriately for a biker dive bar in her pink espadrilles and Ann Taylor clothes, she braves the biker element in search of her sister and her three kids. Needless to say, her sister isn’t there. The text was sent in error, and before she figures that out, she’s in the middle of a shoot out and a burly bearded gorilla grabs her and hustles her out the door. This was the first of the fish out of water scenes in Wrong Number Right Guy for May. She was not the brightest bulb in the bunch, however she was plucky! and damned funny actually. There were a couple of scenes where I was laughing out loud and wiping tears from my eyes. Normally I abhor stupid women in books, but there was more to May than met the eye and I can only think that Ozzie saw right through that Ann Taylor facade before I did. Even though he was mostly the strong silent type, he seemed to like her shenanigans and actually gave her credit for having more brains than I’m convinced she had. He was the perfect stoic foil to her beard jokes and took her teasing very well. The best thing about this novel, besides the humor, was the fact that even though May was kind of nutty, she wasn’t a victim. This girl seemed terrified of everything, but when push came to shove, her instincts were on fire and she’d kick butt. Sometimes by accident, but she didn’t need a man to save her, she always ended up saving herself. This is why this book ranked so high. Well, that and the humor. My god, I laughed! I’m looking forward to reading the other books in the series to see if they are just as funny. ❤❤❤❤

May was hilarious, and loved that she ended up with Ozzie. Loved the rest of the bourben street boys, except for Toni.

OMG! I can’t remember ever laughing so hard at a book. I’m talking, laughing so hard - I can’t catch my breath - gonna pee my pants - this is freaking hilarious - ROTFLOL!!! I had to play several scenes to the hubby, and even without him hearing the entire book, he was laughing also. The best thing was, the laughs started from the very beginning, and didn’t stop! Emily Foster did a phenomenal job with the characters in this one! She brought Elle Casey’s pages to life, and made everyone so real, especially, May, oh man did I love May! Wrong Number, Right Guy was the first novel I’ve read/listened to by Elle Casey, and I will definitely be looking into more, I can’t wait for the 2nd novel in the Bourbon Street Boys series, I hope it’s as funny as the first! Wrong Number, Right Guy was so perfect with so much humor, a bit of action, danger, and some romance thrown in. There is a female lead, May, that I LOVED, and don’t forget her hunk of a man, Ozzie, that I can’t give it anything but 5 Boundless stars, so funny it was perfect!...Sara

May is 29 and a freelance portrait and wedding photographer. Jenny, her sister, and Jenny's three kids are May's rock. May got a text, she thinks it's from her sister and goes to a biker bar looking for Jenny. Ozzie rescues her from being shot in the bar. May goes through a lot of differences by being saved by Ozzie, but she stayed strong and true to herself. I loved both her and Ozzie's characters as well as the others. The story was well told. The plot was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this story. I highly recommend it. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**

3.5 stars--WRONG NUMBER, RIGHT GUY is the first installment in Elle Casey’s contemporary adult THE BOURBON STREET BOYS romantic suspense series focusing on the Bourbon Street Boys (BSB) private security firm. This is owner Ozzie, and professional photographer May Wexler’s storyline. Told from first person point of view (May) WRONG NUMBER, RIGHT GUY focuses on a case of mistaken identity-or-accidental text messaging wherein May receives texts from a number she believes belongs to her sister. When the messages become more incessant, rude and demanding our heroine show up at a local biker bar, May is all about keeping her sister happy. What May doesn’t know is that the phone text is from a man deep undercover whose messages are accidentally being sent to May’s phone. When May shows up at the bar, gunfire and a car pursuit find May in the protective custody of the Bourbon Street Boys, who will soon offer May a position within their group. The relationship between May and Ozzie is one of immediate attraction as May finds herself drawn to the man in charge. Following a number of threats against May’s life, Ozzie has May move into the BSB headquarters wherein a sexual relationship between our leading couple ensues. Ozzie is the epitome of tall, dark and dangerous to May’s ‘Bo-Peep’ in pink outward façade. The $ex scenes are limited, provocative and intense. There is a large cast of secondary and supporting characters including all of Ozzie’s Bourbon Street Boys security personnel. We are introduced to Toni-the only other female specialist-and a woman with secrets of her own. Toni has some issues with May, and May intends to get things out. May’s sister Jennifer-a computer specialist and single mother to three young children- plays a small recurring role as a support system for her sister, and quite possibly a potential new member of the BSB team. The world building focuses on the men and women of the Bourbon Street Boys. We are witness to their individual pursuits and job descriptions as well as their current series of investigations and special operations. There is a building storyline at the local Marina where income and expenses don’t meet up. Elle Casey adds some humor and asides throughout the story as we listen to May’s internal dialogue, banter and jokes pertaining to her current situation. Some of the humor was palatable but there were several instances where the flippancy and blatant attempts at comedy fell flat reminding of a young boy vying for attention with jokes and one-liners. I also had a few issues with the lack of character description and development as it pertained to our leading couple, and the lack of heat in the romance department. I think May’s characters lacked some maturity as it pertained to relationships making for some uncomfortable scenarios and relationship talk. WRONG NUMBER, RIGHT GUY is an easy read; an entertaining storyline where two people from different walks of life find happiness and love all because of a wrong number and a few misdirected texts. Aside from some few bumps with the writing style WRONG NUMBER, RIGHT GUY is a welcome introduction to Elle Casey’s THE BOUBON STREET BOYS romantic suspense series. I am looking forward to what’s in store for the BSB security team.

I think this is one of those books you will either love or find a bit silly. I lean more toward the silly side. I found the characters uninspiring and not very memorable. While the premise of the story is cute, a text from a wrong number sends a normally careful woman into a crazy situation. The lack of connection with the characters makes it unbelievable at times. This one was just an ok read for me.

Having read Ms. Casey’s Shine Not Burn series, I was hoping once again to be entertained with a romantic read featuring a funny, feisty heroine. She did not disappoint. The heroine, May, who narrated this tale, had me laughing out-loud with her antics, inner dialog, and witty banter with not only the handsome, alpha hero but the likeable, believable cast of secondary characters…human and canine, alike. If I had to summarize this one up using just a few words, it would be “Legally Blonde meets the A-Team.” No, May wasn’t blonde nor a law student, but despite her attractive, innocent looking appearance, she sure seemed to be able to defend herself in the unusual, unplanned situations that seemed to follow her and the adorable, loyal Chihuahua she toted around in her purse. The A-Team factor, of course, referring to the guns-for-hire security firm she found herself working for. Throw in May’s heart-warming relationship with her single parent sister/nieces/nephews and the smoldering, slow burn romance with the hero and, honestly, my book-loving friends, there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this one. The writing flowed, was engaging, had just enough drama/suspense/romance to keep me captivated from beginning to end. There simply wasn’t anything wrong with this romantic tale. In fact, it was the right choice for this NetGalley reviewer. Here’s to hoping you will feel the same. I know I’m already looking forward to the rest of the series. Title: Wrong Number, Right Guy, Series: The Bourbon Street Boys (Book 1), Author: Elle Casey, Pages: 341, stand-alone, HEA, no cheating, witty banter, a few steamy scenes that did not highjack the storyline. (This review was based on NetGalley ARC e-book received in exchange for an honest, unbiased opinion.)

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. Oh to describe May (Bo Peep) Wexler. She is a photographer but to survive, she is forced to photograph weddings, and family portraits. Even with this, business comes in spurts, and right now is a definite dry spell. She lives alone with her tiny Chihuahua, Felix. To be inside May’s head was a crazy, crazy ride. She constantly struggles with self confidence but makes up for it with pure commitment to whatever she is attempting to do. On this particular night, she has been texting with her single Mom to three kids sister who is frazzled. A little later on, she receives what she thinks is another text from her sister saying that she is at a biker bar in the bad part of town in New Orleans. What would her sister be doing there with her three kids? So off May goes to rescue her sister with her little dog in her purse. She soon discovers, though, that her sister is not in fact, in the bar, and finds herself smack in the middle of a shoot out, only to be rescued by the hairiest man she has ever seen. The bad guys follow her so May ends up needing to stay the night at the hairy man’s place, only to find out that he is not really a hairy man at all but a very muscular, very handsome, very sexy man. Meet Ozzie, head of the security firm, Bourbon Street Boys which he runs out of his home. Ozzie lives alone with his huge watchdog, Sahara, who instantly develops a relationship with May’s tiny dog. Ozzie is intimidating and runs his business with an iron fist so to speak. To say he was bowled over by the little tiny woman with the dog in her purse would be an understatement. May earns the nick name Bo Peep due to her innocent appearance. They all soon learn that even though May has no experience with self defense, she has an uncanny ability to react under stress and defend herself. Once they also learn that she is a photographer, they decide to ask her to join their team. But she will have to train with them, learn self defense tactics, get in shape. Could she really do this for a living? Could she be a part of this would be family? “It’s like all my life the light switch that is the real me has been turned off, and Ozzie somehow figured out how to turn it on. This is me, the real May Wexler.” May and Ozzie have some definite chemistry. And once Ozzie relaxes around her, she realizes that the tough guy personality is not Ozzie at all. He is really just a big teddy bear. But he is her boss. Her lack of self confidence has her questioning his every move. But Ozzie is nothing if not patient. The way he gets her to relax was just perfection. I loved every single page of this book. May was so much fun to get to know. And Ozzie, well, he had me from the beginning. I’m so excited to see what Elle Casey has in mind for the future of this series. You can rest assured that I will first in line waiting for the next book.
