Reviews Wrong Number, Right Guy [The Bourbon Street Boys #1] by Elle Casey

Title: Wrong Number, Right Guy
Author: Elle Casey
Series: The Bourbon Street Boys
Release Date: September 22nd 2015


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?

Author Bio

Elle Casey is a prolific, NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling American writer who lives in Southern France with her husband, three kids, and several furry friends. She writes in several genres and publishes an average of one full-length novel per month.




The first thing that caught my eye was the cover. Then the blurb. The magic words were New Orleans. I love reading stories set there. It's from all the Anne Rice and Sherrilyn Kenyon I've read, for sure.

Our heroine, May, goes to the rescue when she receives a text message from her sister. It sounds weird, but May shrugs it off, due to her sister's life being harder, what with her husband turning out to be a bastard and all. She lives in the better parts of the city, so ending up in a biker bar, in the dangerous parts is bound to draw attention. And it does.

Now, this book is light and funny. There's not really any heavy subject discussed. Sure, the heroine's kinda immature, at times, but I mostly liked her, because she's funny and awkward.

Ozzie? For the love of everything that is holy, that man is PERFECT! Putting aside the fact that he's big and bad, he's a softie, underneath all that a-hole exterior. He makes you melt and swoon. And fan yourself, at certain scenes *sigh*

Did I like this book? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes. Will I reread it? Yes. I'm even thinking of getting it in paperback format. Ozzie may have even made it onto my BBF list.

I also decided to rate it 4.5 stars. I received a copy from the author through NetGalley in exchange of my honest review. Thank you.

May meets Ozzie after receiving a text she believes is from her sister, but soon finds out that it was sent to the wrong number. What follows is an often funny chain of events. May is a bit whacky and her sense of humor kept me laughing. I adored her relationship with her sister, nieces and nephew. Ozzie initially comes off as very gruff, but what's underneath is a big teddy bear.

I would say this is an insta-love, so if you don't enjoy that, then this may not be the book for you. But if you like a sweet, yet sassy heroine and a gruff, but lovable hero, then this book might just be your cup of tea.

I'm hoping to see more of this crew, as there were a lot of strings left dangling.
