Genre: YA 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 worthy 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’m just going to start by saying I loved Right Text Wrong Number. It starts with almost instant drama between Layla and her boyfriend Adam. She catches him sexting some chick and she tries to fire back at the other girl and winds up text Tyler instead. From that point on I was hooked!
Layla is an independent cheerleader with a lot more layers than what she shows on the surface. At first, it seems she is a bit stuck up, but as I continued to read I enjoyed her character so much. She has insecurities when it came to certain things but that made her feel way more relatable. It was even better when she pushed past her insecurities and didn’t let them hold her back. She also has a great relationship with her sister, which I thought was the absolute best. When her sister is picked on. Layla stands behind her and always has her back, even if it’s her own friends who are doing the picking. Sometimes her naive or stubborn tendencies frustrated me and I just wanted to shake her. But really it was one of the things that made her who she was.
Tyler is another character that has way more levels to him then he lets others see. To the kids at school, he’s a class clown who only cares about foot ball and partying. They don’t see him struggle with his family issues, or how even the party boy sticks to a strict code on how to treat girls. He was a strong character and I loved seeing him fall for Layla and back her up with her dirt bag boyfriend. He’s also a great friend, even though he can sometimes be oblivious to things around him.
Right Text Wrong Number really was such a joy to read, I couldn’t put it down. It made me laugh, made me angry, frustrated, sad, and smile with glee. It had so much more going on than just the budding romance between Layla and Tyler which was another thing that made it great as well. And for those that love the drama, well it had that in truck loads. It’s definitely one that needs to be read by all who are a fan of contemporary teen romances. Five stars to you Natalie Decker, keep it coming!
