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?
Rating & Review
Great story - it made laugh out loud several times. I loved May and Ozzie. I'm interested in the rest of the team too and can't wait to read the rest of the series! This is a great start to the series. Good writing, character development is on point, and the story flows amazingly well!
I both read this story on my kindle and listened on Audible. It's always easier and faster for me to read the actual kindle version (or you know the printed book if I have it), but I listened to this story most of the way through. I really loved Emily's narration of the story - she made Kate so real and like she was sitting there just telling me this story rather than reading me a book.
The opening scene is HILARIOUS. I literally laughed/snorted/cried it is so damn funny. If you don't think it's funny, we can't be friends.
This is a great intro' into the relationship between the sisters and all shit that's happening in their lives. I love Kate's narration and the tone of how she's introduced and how she talks. I don't know if it is the Audible narrator, Emily Foster, and how well she reads Kate or if it's just the writing in the book, but I really loved Kate from the very beginning. Don't get me wrong... Kate is a pain in the ass and kind of annoying some times, but I really loved her throughout the story.
Ozzie .... my oh my
Can we please just take a moment for Ozzie.
This situation that leads us to Ozzie is SO GREAT! I mean for real... Kate is seemingly gullible here when she gets into this shit, but I can go with it and give the story a minute. Annnnnnnnnyway ... I really love the play between Kate and Ozzie. I love how he is all no nonsense from the very beginning and is so mad at Kate for not trusting him right away - which HELLO she shouldn't, but come on let's keep going here. This beginning gives so many options for the story to go and I love it so much!
The Team is AWESOME. I'll leave it at that... I love the interaction between Kate and the Team. The entire story between Kate and Team is fantastic - the intro to the Team is so great and I want to know so much more about them all and how it all works out.
The end of this story ... the last two chapters or so ... can we please all take a breath. I LOVED IT! I love that even through it all Kate's sense of humor is present and amazing. The way Ozzie walks Kate through all this shit that goes down ... I mean come on. He is amazing. Kate, I just really love her. As you can see, I enjoyed this story so much. I totally recommend this to you all - I think you'll like it. I'll be checking out the other three books in the series and I'll let you know what I think after I do.

Wrong Place, Right Time (#2)
Jenny’s single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny’s looking for adventure or romance—she’s the type of woman who believes in playing it safe.
When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys—a New Orleans private security firm—she knows she should stay away. They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm’s way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer…Problem is, there’s a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won’t quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.
Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she’s always done—play it safe and wait for the right time?
Wrong Question, Right Answer (#3)
As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.
Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.
For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.
She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.
Wrong Turn, Right Direction (#4)
Tamika Cleary takes a wrong turn up a one-way street—and straight into Thibault Delacroix’s leg as he steps into the road. But Mika’s in a hurry, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a guy who can’t even look both ways before crossing, even if he does have a cute face, a body to die for, and the darkest, thickest eyelashes she’s ever seen.
Unfortunately for Mika, fate has other ideas. When she’s threatened by her employer, a Russian mafia boss known as “The Thief”, she’s forced to accept Thibault’s help. As the co-owner of the Bourbon Street Boys security firm, he believes he can keep her safe. But Mika has a whole load of trust issues—and the pushier Thibault is about helping, the more stubbornly she tries to resist.
Mika may have taken a wrong turn the day they met, but will she finally let someone steer her in the right direction?
