Right Text, Wrong Number - Review

Right Text Wrong Number
by Natalie Decker

Genre: YA Contemporary/Sports Romance

High school juniors Layla and Tyler are complete opposites. Sure she’s a cheerleader and he’s a football player, but she thinks he’s the biggest jerk in the school and he thinks she is too high on her horse to even be worth of a second glance from him. And when the two of them are near one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They are NOT interested in speaking to one another, let alone date. 

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no idea it’s Layla and decides to play along. After all, Tyler cannot resist messing with the pissed off girl firing off texts about junk pictures, cheating, and girl code. 

As the fallout from Adam’s sexting scandal plays out in front of the entire school, Tyler and Layla secretly continue to text one another using fake names. But as days and weeks pass, things take a turn for the serious between them, and suddenly, their texts mean more. They both begin to consider revealing their true identity to the other and taking the relationship from texts to dates, then kissing and maybe more. 

They say there's a thin line between love and hate. Can reality live up to the fantasy, or will Layla and Tyler be forever offsides?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: 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 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!
