The Wright Mistake by K.A. Linde
The Wright Mistake - K.A. Linde

 

I thought I had this particular Wright figured out, but it turns out I never had a clue. Behind the party boy persona was a deeply compelling individual. Austin was smarter than anyone gave him credit for. He managed to hide his insecurities behind his good time ways. His thirst for unconditional love and understanding led to self destructive behavior. He was addicted to the attention it brought more than the vices that got him noticed. Never did he count on losing his heart to a spitfire with a tough girl attitude and a body full of ink. Fear and pride cost him the greatest of treasures. Will remorse help him become the better man she needs him to be? We all dream of that perfect love and although Julia and Austin are far from the perfect couple, Ms. Linde makes you want to root for them flaws and all.

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.

The Wright Brother - K.A. Linde

I tend to be an eager beaver when it comes to trying out a new author, which, my mounting TBR list reflects.  K. A Linde was never on my radar until I read the synopsis for her latest release, ‘The Wright Brother”.   While I had some misgivings, I must admit I was somewhat intrigued by the premise and so I decided to give this book a chance.  I am glad I did.  If you are a fan of sexy, sweet, dramatic and poignant stories, then you will love Jensen and Emery’s story.

 

Emery had left Lubbock, West Texas after graduating from high school. She relocated to Austin, Texas and is currently pursuing her PhD in history.  When she discovered that, her boyfriend of three years had cheated on her, she made the decision to resign from the PhD program and return home. She knew returning home would mean encountering her ex, an encounter she was not looking forward to,  as she had sworn off men, especially those from the Wright family. However, what she never counted on was falling in love, especially with a Wright brother.  Her portrayal piqued my interest in learning more about her. There were so many aspects to her and it was interesting getting to know each one of them.

 

Jensen, Wright, billionaire and CEO of Wright Construction has sworn off committed relationships after being betrayed by his ex-wife. He has since become a love them and leave them kind of guy, so when he saw Emery at his sister’s wedding his only thought was a one-time hookup.  Women fell at his feet every chance they get so you can imagine how surprised he was when Emery rejected his advances. However, being the type of person who goes after what he wants he would not let one rejection deter him. However, discovering that she used to date his brother, Landon, made things a bit complicated, as he could not stop thinking about her.

 

“Speaking of Miranda, I heard she freaked out last night.” Landon blew out a grateful breath at the change of subject. “Yeah, bro, my ex-girlfriend Emery Robinson was there. You remember her?” My body stilled, and everything narrowed down to that name. “Emery Robinson,” I whispered. “Yeah. You know, my high school girlfriend. I didn’t even recognize her, and Miranda was pissed that she hadn’t been informed she’d be there.” “You didn’t recognize her?” I whispered as horror and realization began to dawn on me. “Nope. How fucked up is that?” I ran a hand back through my short hair and closed my eyes. “Fuck.” “What?” Landon asked in confusion. I shook my head. This could not be happening. Em— my mysterious Em, my fucking Cinderella— was Emery Robinson. Of course, she would recognize me. But I hadn’t seen her in… God, ten years. No wonder she had ran away from me. I’d just tried to pick up my brother’s ex-girlfriend.

 

Jensen is a man with many secrets. Forced to abandon his dreams to take care of his siblings and to assume control of the family business when his parents died changed him. In addition, he has issues where trust was concerned, which was understandable given what is ex-wife put him through. He approaches everything in his life like a business and does not get emotionally involved except when it came to his siblings.

The story reminded me that love happens when we least expect it and at times with the most unlikely person.  Emery and Jensen would discover the truth of this statement in due course.  

 

Their attraction is mutual, but circumstances called for them to move cautiously.  Their interaction with each other at times was entertaining and heartbreaking which was due to miscommunication and mixed signals in most instances. Their romance was not all sweet and flowery.  A little steam, angst, and drama added to the mix helped to make things very interesting. 

 

The secondary characters played their role in making the story dramatic and entertaining. Emery’s best friend Heidi was the perfect scene-stealer.  She helped her to keep things in perspective. She is the type of friend who has your back no matter the situation.  I cannot wait to read her which I get to understand is next in the series.

 

The drawback to this story was that based on the synopsis I was expecting a little more drama as it relates to Emery’s relationship with the two brothers. In this regard, I found the synopsis misleading, as Landon’s role in regards to his interaction with Emery was minimal.  Then there were the scenes involving Jensen, his ex-wife, and their big secret.  Personally, I thought the author went a bit overboard with this.  To be honest, this aspect of the story had a soap operatic feel to it.  In spite of this, I found the story to be well written and engaging.

 

Overall, I enjoyed this installment in the Wright series, and I cannot wait to see what next the author will deliver. 

 

Note: This can be read as a stand-alone.
