A steamy text to the wrong number has laugh-out-loud consequences in this irresistible rom-com, perfect for fans of THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS

Bad luck has always followed Olivia. But when a steamy text from a random number turns into the most entertaining relationship of her life, it seems things are looking up...

Colin has always considered Olivia his flatmate's annoying little sister. Until she moves in with them, and he realizes she's turned into an altogether sexier distraction...

He's determined to keep his distance, but it isn't easy. Especially when he discovers she's the girl he's been secretly messaging.

Now, Mr Wrong Number must make a decision. Should he shut down the messages, before things get messy?

Or turn up the heat...?

Lynn Painter lives with her husband and pack of wild children in Nebraska, where she is a weekly contributor to the Omaha World-Herald and an avid fan of napping. When working on a new book, she can often be found sound asleep on her office floor. Some might say she should grow up and stop randomly dozing off like she's a toddler, but Lynn considers it part of her writing process.

Reviews for Mr Wrong Number

The most sidesplittingly funny, sexual tension-filled book I've read in a long, long time. I dare you not to fall in love! -- Ali Hazlewood, author of <i>The Love Hypothesis</i> Smart, sexy, and downright hilarious. Mr. Wrong Number is an absolutely pitch-perfect romantic comedy -- Christina Lauren, author of <i>The Unhoneymooners</i> One of my favorite romcoms, heavy on the 'com' and steamy on the 'rom' -- Jesse Q. Sutanto, author of <i>Dial A for Aunties</i> This book is an absolute blast, a classic rom-com setup with a modern twist. Lynn Painter's clever, charming voice sparkles on every page -- Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of <i>Weather Girl</i> A laugh-out-loud flirty read that sizzles with witty banter and plenty of heat. I could not put it down! -- Samantha Young, author of <i>Much Ado About You </i> Filled with laugh-out-loud situations and moments of heart-fluttering swooniness, Mr. Wrong Number is a true romantic comedy. I loved reading about Olivia's messy, passionate approach to life. And the sexual tension was off the charts! -- Kerry Winfrey, author of <i>Very Sincerely Yours</i> Mr. Wrong Number puts the 'com' in rom-com, delivering energetic, laugh-out-loud hilarity from page one. Painter's mastery of sexy slow-burn tension and whip-sharp banter will have readers smiling from ear to ear -- Amy Lea, author of <i>Set on You</i> A delightfully messy heroine and world-class banter make this oh-so-sweet story of hidden identities and mixed (text) messages impossible to put down. Sexy, hilarious, compulsively readable -- Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of <i>The Roughest Draft</i> Hilarious, heart-melting, and hopeful, Painter's adult debut is a romantic delight that I wished would never end. The phone number might have been wrong, but every single thing about Mr. Wrong Number is oh-so right -- Libby Hubscher, author of <i>Meet Me in Paradise</i> Mr. Wrong Number is a wildly addictive, wickedly funny tale of two seeming opposites - or are they? Fresh, original, and brimming with heart -- Devon Daniels, author of <i>Meet Me in the Middle</i>
