The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde has it all. Lots of sexy moments, a lot of drama, and a family that rivals any of the families on Dallas that I watched growing up.
Emery used to date Landon Wright when she was in high school. However, after a few years together, Landon dumped her hard. Of course, that was almost ten years ago now. Emery has moved on. Unfortunately her taste in men hasn’t improved that much. After catching her most recent long-term boyfriend with another woman, Emery has had enough. She drops out of her PhD program and returns home to Lubbock, Texas, to be closer to her family while she decides what to do next.
What to do next does NOT mean having any kind of contact with Jensen Wright, the oldest Wright brother and the head of the family. It certainly does not mean making out with him at his sister’s wedding and then… accepting a date. It does not mean a wild night of sex where, come morning, he’s giving her the cold shoulder. Why does Emery seem to have a soft spot for the Wright men?
The Wright Brother throws two tough talking characters together and has them butt heads in the best way. Emery is tired of constantly giving the WRONG man a chance. She does not want a relationship but she just cannot say no to Jensen. For Jensen, he’s hesitant to get involved with his brother’s high school girlfriend but the friction and energy he feels with Emery makes it hard to stay away. Of course, in the course of trying to resist temptation, he behaves quite ignobly at times. After their first night together, he hustles her out of his house fast and like Emery, I was angry. He does apologize but I was really glad that Emery did not make things easy for him.
That being said, Jensen has some pretty deep motivations for his actions. His relationship with his ex-wife is awful and she burned him big time. While I hate the trope of the hero believing all women are “bad” (except for the heroine!) after a break-up, Jensen’s ex pulls some pretty awful things on him. I sympathized with his actions a bit more after discovering what was going on in his life.
Emery is far from perfect (as we all are!) but I just really liked her. She’s a bit of a tomboy but the more important things are that she is a good friend, a good sister, and though she’s at a crossroads in her life, she is not letting that defeat her. Emery is ready to handle life’s curveballs.
The Wright Brother is a sexy and fun romance. There is a great chemistry between the main characters but also just a fun rapport between the supporting characters too. I liked spending time in their world. K.A. Linde will hook you in with this charming Texas tale.
I’d dated his brother.
He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.
I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.
Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.
Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.
When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?
