A wrong number with a sexy voice on the other end… What are the chances a regular guy has just hooked the hottest actor on the silver screen?

Ryan Pierce is in town shooting the latest romantic action movie and attending all the right publicity parties. He wasn’t expecting to pick up the phone to an easy laugh and real conversation. So, when he discovers that his caller has misdialed, it surprises him even more that he doesn’t want the man to hang up.

Dar Phillips is the last man to get star-struck, yet his best friend drags him out to be an extra on a movie set. It’s a chance to meet the guy on the set who he accidently called, but he has to admit the lead actor is hot stuff. Could the loping mega-star be his phone-a-friend? And, when they kiss, is Dar ready for the paparazzi and accusations of betrayal by the man who now stars in Dar’s every dream?

Who did Dar fall for? The elusive Ryan Pierce, who can’t be seen with him, or the quiet, gentle man who’s just a phone call away?

When Dar Phillips accidentally calls someone other than his friend, the voice that answers isn’t all that disturbed by the wrong number. To the contrary, he’s rather intrigued by this unknown person disrupting his morning. What begins as an accident turns quickly into something more. But is Dar – and more importantly, the man on the other end of the line – ready for what’s coming?

Dar Phillips is your average boy-next-door. He’s a sweet guy who works hard for what little he has. I really liked Dar from the beginning, and the fact that he had a cat only helped matters. It was also really nice that he was so down-to-earth even when meeting mega star Ryan Pierce. Although, his over-the-top friend, Brett, makes up for that by adding at least three times the excitement.

Ryan Pierce is a bit of a stereotype, unfortunately. He’s a closeted gay movie star who sees nothing but doom and destruction should his secret ever be found out. Once you get past that, he’s a great guy who means well, even if he screws it all up now and then. The poor guy is out of practice when it comes to attracting men, after all. Dar and Ryan are a good match because they balance each other out. Where Ryan is the eccentric movie star, Dar is more humble.

I really enjoyed the concept of this story. That two people could make such a connection over the phone without ever meeting is beyond romantic (even if a bit unbelievable in this day and age) and you really want to root for them. They’re both utterly adorable when talking to each other that I couldn’t stop smiling. But the giant misunderstanding that nearly destroys them put me off a bit. I know that relationships have their misunderstandings, especially in the beginning, but for there to be such a huge one so early on was a shock. That said, Wrong Number, Right Guy, is a sweet, steamy and sexy novel that leaves you wanting to know more about Dar and Ryan and where they’re going from here.
