The Wright Boss - K.A. Linde

Having had the pleasure of reading The Wright Brother, I was glad for the opportunity to read the Wright Boss. The Wright Boss is a stand-alone contemporary adult romance and the second book in the Wright Brother series.

The Wright Boss is Landon and Heidi’s story. I first met them in The
Wright Brother and since then I eagerly awaited the release of their story. Landon Wright is a pro-golfer, whose career has hit a snag after suffering a severe back injury. His personal life is not worth much these days as his marriage is an epic failure. After several attempts to salvage his marriage, he realised the impossibility of trying to save something that was not worthy of being saved. As a result, he returned to his childhood home to recuperate and restore some order to his messed up life.

Heidi Martin is an engineer with Wright Construction Ltd. She knew Landon from her time in high school when he dated her best friend. Since that time, they have been good friends, but lately, she has come to realise that her feelings for Landon went deeper than friendship. However, giving into her feelings would lead to her breaking three rules she has lived by when it came to relationships.

1. Do not date your co-worker, especially if he is your boss.
2. Do not get involved with your best friend's ex
3. Never get involved with a married man.

Would she break the rules she has lived by or will she continue to deny her feelings?

I enjoyed this instalment. Truth be told I thought it was better than the previous book. From the moment, I began reading I was held captive by beautiful writing. The pacing was fitting and the story never gave me a chance to feel bored.

I enjoyed Heidi and Landon’s interaction with each other. Their attraction was undeniable and their chemistry explosive. Heidi tried to deny her feelings and to keep her distance from the man who held her heart, but this proved difficult. Her situation was made more difficult by the fact that they worked in such proximity to each other. In addition, Landon’s determination to have her in his life tested her resolve and placed the thing she held dear in danger.

The situation regarding their relationship was a bit of a grey area. Technically, Landon was married, but he was actively seeking a divorce. I know there are readers who would have preferred if they got involved after the divorce was final and for some, the fact that he was seeking a divorce was good enough. I guess it all boils down to our own sense of morality, and what we believe is acceptable as against what we consider is unacceptable. Anyway, in spite of the grey area, I enjoyed their romance, which I thought was beautifully written. Heidi and Landon’s connection ran deep. Their love for each other went through many tests, but in the end, it triumphed, which is a testament to the phrase ‘Love conquers all’.

Landon’s soon to be ex-wife is a piece of work. His family never liked her and for good reason. She is not only a gold digger, but she is also the most conniving, selfish and manipulative person I have had the displeasure to meet. No wonder Landon could not get from her fast enough. There were moments when I believe she was delusional in thinking that Landon would never leave her. The measures she took to try to stop Landon from leaving her was pathetic. I had no sympathy for her. I am still at a loss as to why Landon gave her so many chances, but I am glad he finally came to his senses and kicked her to the
kerb.

I admired Heidi for her fighting spirit. She is not the type to wallow in self-pity. She is independent, career-oriented and opinionated. She has been through a lot, but she hid her pain well. She had issues with her dad and as a result, she refused to forgive him. I liked that in the end, she
made the decision to let go of the bitterness and restore her relationship with her dad.

I had some minor issues, and thankfully, these did not hinder my enjoyment of the story. When misfortune befell Heidi because of her relationship with Landon I did not, appreciate how quick she was to blame Landon, yet she accepted her friend’s action without putting up a fight. She also failed to acknowledge her part in the situation.

Verdict
This was an enjoyable read and one that I would recommend to fans of friends to lovers trope. I am counting down the days for the release of the next book in the

The Wright Boss
The Wright Boss - K.A. Linde From the outside, the Wrights seem to have a perfect life. Power and money are in abundance but they seem to have lacked one important factor all their lives. LOVE! For this reason they grew up wild, traumatized and empty. Whether male or female there is never a lack of alpha tendencies, strong personalities are a MUST with this brood. They may not always see eye to eye but when it matters most they have each others backs. What a family. The Wright Boss adds fuel to an already fiery series with spicy characters, wicked dialogue and turbulent emotions. Nobody does complicated like the Wright family. Strong men, opinionated women and heated slightly taboo attractions. Easy is not the way a Wright plays the game, they play for keeps. Ms. Linde came to win and she hit it out of the park with Landon and his siren of a love interest Heidi.

Boss
Boss (The Donovan Dynasty) - Sierra Cartwright

'Boss' By Sierra Cartwright is book Three in " The Donovan Dynasty" series. This is the story of Kelsey and Donovan. I have read the previous books but this can be a standalone book.
Kelsey doesn't do relationship commitments but she is a hard worker who is an asset to the company she works for. But then it gets taken over by Donovan and she is attracted to him...and he to her. So they talk about having a 1 week affair where he can introduce her to his sexual lifestyle. Kelsey goes forward in this agreement but will she have issue when the time frame is over? Will Donovan be able to walk away too? "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

About Melissa Schroeder:

 

From an early age, USA Today Bestselling author Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

 

Since her first published book , Mel has had over 60 short stories, novellas, and novels published. She has written in genres ranging from historical to contemporary to futuristic and has worked with 8 publishers although she handles most of her publishing herself.

About Dawn Altieri:

 

A lifelong resident of northern New Jersey, Dawn Altieri has been scribbling stories practically since birth. After reaching a milestone birthday (she won’t say which one), she figured it was about time she took a shot at writing professionally. With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them.

 

When she’s not curled up on the sofa with her laptop, her latest story, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), she can be found volunteering in the world of animal rescue. She shares her home with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of rescued fur-babies

Reading progress update: I've read 30%.
Boss - Tracy Brown

I'm not meshing well with BOSS thus far to my utter disappointment. However, I read some reviews and this book is supposed to become riveting so, I will trudge forth and perhaps skim until I reach that point. I actually put it down and moved on to The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence: A Story about Botticelli by Alyssa Palombo. 

 

I hope I can get another book read in the next 3 days. April has definitely been a hell of a month for me.
