Blog Tour & Review ~ The Wright Brother by KA Linde
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?

“I’d thought tonight would be the start of everything new…and, now, I was left wondering if we were even going to make it to tomorrow.”
The Wright Brother was very different from a KA Linde norm, this was a sweet, light and fluffy romance with a little angst and a dose of instalove. The trademark angst fest that normally goes hand in hand with a KA Linde read was absent and it was great to read a totally different side of this author.
“It was a life-shifting kiss. One of those that came only once in a lifetime. The kind that you didn’t want to mean more. You wanted it to be a list-induced kiss in the dark, but you couldn’t even fool yourself. This one was everything.”
When I started reading this book and the pieces were beginning to fall into place I had expectations of a traditional KA read, my mind was spinning with endless possibilities and as this book came to a close I was a little disappointed that they never came to fruition. But, for those that love an easy read, one where the heart isn’t constantly racing for fear of what curve balls the author will throw next this will tick all those boxes.
Jensen Wright was adorable, a man scorned and reticent to love again and as such a man with huge trust issues. Jensen is a workaholic who has thrown himself into his family’s company to forget, the more he works, the more he doesn’t think about his ex-wife.
Emery was near to completing her doctorate, something that had been losing its allure for quite a while. When Emery finds her long-time boyfriend cheating on her she decides enough is enough, quits the program and goes back home with her tail between her legs. Once home, her best friend persuades her to be her plus one at one of the Wright’s wedding. Having been burned by Landon Wright in the past Emery was reticent to go, but free booze was the kicker and so Emery puts on her big girls panties and prepares to face a family she has sworn away from for life.
Landon is now married and is well and truly under the thumb and extremely unhappy. Jensen is divorced and extremely single. Neither man recognises Emery at first, but with looks alone a spark is ignited between Jensen and Emery, would one night ever be enough?
“It was deep and personal. He had touched my soul. Devoured my heart. And brought us both back to life. Jensen Wright had rewritten my world.”
From the name and synopsis of this book I was expecting a love triangle of sorts, or at least a showdown between brothers and that didn’t materialise, instead we are treated to secrets of Jensen’s past which for me didn’t hold as much as impact as a brother showdown would have, but none the less I did enjoy.
This was an easy read for me and I raced through it. While the proclamations of love did come a little too soon for my liking, especially from someone with Jensen’s issues, I did love it none the less. I had a huge case of the warm and fuzzies by the end and was extremely happy. With so many Wright brothers I cannot wait for the next one, each one is intriguing in their own right and I cannot wait to see where KA Linde takes this series going forward.
