Wrong Number

All bad decisions are born out of one key moment. A moment, thoughtless or not, where you choose wrong over right. Evil over good. You roll the dice and brace for the consequences, and that’s exactly what Jolie and Carson did the day they met by mistake. One wrong number, one simple conversation over text, and their lives as they knew it were gone. Jolie, a miserable housewife who clings to the bottle just to get by, and Carson, a doctor who’s stitched together the perfect facade to hide his failed marriage from his children and colleagues. Loneliness consumes them both, and when they find an unlikely friend at the end of a stranger’s phone number, they cling to whatever connection they can get. Neither intended to cross any lines, but then again, good people rarely intend to do bad things. For Jolie and Carson, their key moment was fast and not at all easy. And the consequences might be even worse. Wrong Number is a slow burn, forbidden love, age gap romance with high angst and some steamy scenes. Despite how hard you have to work to get there, HEA is guaranteed!
