  • Fun and steamy read!

    Actual Rating 3.5 stars I was really excited to read Four Letter Word and couldn't wait to get it. Sadly, for me, it ended up just being OK. It certainly wasn't terrible, and I enjoyed it enough to want to finish it, but I didn't feel all that invested in the characters. I thought the idea of how Brian and Sydney met was original (though I wouldn't do this in real life!), but even though they talked and got to know each other in this way, it still felt superficial and like instalove when they got together. I sympathized with Brian and his guilt, but how he decided to solve his money problem didn't really seem realistic. I don't feel like that would be the answer that most people would come to if in that situation, but until you walk a mile in someone's shoes... I liked both MC's and it was nice to have the dual POV so that we could be in each of their heads. I did wish Sydney would have been a bit stronger emotionally, but given the circumstances she was facing I did understand where she was coming from. I actually was most annoyed by the way Brian spoke. It all seemed disjointed and was it my imagination that every sentence he said seemed to start with a verb? I feel like some nouns were missing. The ending felt too rushed and was resolved really quickly, but perhaps since this is the first book in the series, we will get further updates/epilogues on the characters later. I was most surprised that the drama came up so late in the book. It was inevitable though with all the foreshadowing, so I was expecting it and the push away. In the end, Four Letter Word was a fun and steamy read, that was enjoyable enough that I will still continue on with the series.

  • 4.25 stars-engaging and emotional

    4.25 stars-- FOUR LETTER WORD is the first installment in J. Daniels’s contemporary, adult DIRTY DEEDS erotic, romance series. This is former surfer Brian ‘Dash’ Savage, and x-ray technologist Sydney Paige’s story line. Told from dual first person points of view (Sydney and Brian) FOUR LETTER WORD follows the building relationship between Sydney Paige and Brian Savage. When her husband of seven years announces he wants a divorce our heroine packs her bags and heads to Dogwood Beach to move in with her best friend Tori but Tori’s personal life has also gone to h*ll and Sydney decides to confront the man that destroyed Tori’s life. A wrong number and a verbal tirade focusing on the stranger at the other end of the line finds Sydney mortified to learn she cussed out the wrong man. Enter former surfer Brian Savage, and the man who would begin a ‘virtual affair’ with our story line heroine. What ensues is the back and forth texting and phone calls in which our couple begin to fall in love before they ever meet. Brian Savage is a broken man; racked with guilt and a need to repent for sins of the past Brian has too many secrets that are about to destroy the woman with whom he is falling in love. Sydney Paige is trying to put her life back together, and falling in love with Brian is the balm to her broken heart. The relationship between Sydney and Brian begins accidentally when our heroine dials Brian’s number by mistake. Brian is so impressed with the ‘tirade’ on the other end of the line he texts back our heroine and thusly begins a romantic relationship with a woman he has never met. Meeting in person our couple are quick to consummate their relationship-a relationship that is mired by secrets and betrayal. The $ex scenes are intimate, intense and provocative. Our couple like to talk dirty in the bedroom. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Brian’s friends Cole and Jamie McCade as well as Sydney’s co-workers at the Whitecaps diner Shay, Sean and Kali, and their boss Nate whose personal life is broken and sad. We are introduced to Sydney’s best friend Tori whose own life is a series of mismanaged relationships but there is some definite sexual attraction between Tori and Brian’s business partner and ‘local surfing legend’ Jamie McCade-a sexual attraction that finds Tori and Jamie bickering throughout the story. The world building follows the friendships and relationships of two groups of friends, and the fall out of one couple when Brian’s secrets or ‘lies of omission’ threaten their building love. FOUR LETTER WORD has a little bit of everything: humor, fun, romance, intrigue, betrayal, heartbreak and love. The premise is engaging, clever and emotional; the characters are passionate, broken and dynamic; the romance is captivating and intense. J. Daniels FOUR LETTER WORD is a moving story line with sympathetic characters and a wonderful happily ever after.

  • So Good!

    Clever, fun, sexy and emotional. I wasn’t expecting this. The first chapter got me hooked and I was a goner. This story is simply AMAZING. It has been a long time since I cried reading a book. Shad a few tears, yeah, but really cry… a LONG time. And Wild and Trouble’s story made me sob. And let me tell ya: I freakin’ love to have a nice ugly cry session while reading! So this alone was a plus. This book is J’s best book to date! Her writing improved so much since her first books that it amazed me. I am now officially her fan and I will read all her future books. I WANT MORE, MRS. DANIELS!!!!!!! P.S.: Brian = swoon. Tori = my spirit animal.

  • Love Life & Friends

    3.5 stars I really like stories that involve a group of friends. This is one of those. The girls are besties and the guys are too so naturally they all end up in the same circle. Sydney has a heck of a start. She’s going through some personal hell, and then finds out that her girl is too. This all leads to a mix up of Sydney telling the wrong guy off. I like the way this accidental action spurs a whole love story. Lots of random things happen with a little too exact timing in the storyline, but this conversation is the best. Brian is also going through some issues. Although, Sydney does have reasons to be upset, I think Brian’s obstacles are bigger. Some are life, and some are self-made. He seems to have more of a support system initially that she does though. Basically everything is a major life-altering event that both are going through. Four Letter Word has laughter, tears and sexy times. I liked how it also focused so much on friendship. I’ll continue the series. I’m looking forward to seeing how the other romances play out.

  • Four Letter Word

    Way over the top with writing about emotions. No one cries that much about every little thing. Had a hard time finishing the book.
