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?

Review

I have never read a KA Linde book before *gasp*, but she has definitely been on my radar for a while now. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to start with The Wright Brother! This was a great read and I really enjoyed it. Can’t wait for Landon’s book next and will definitely have to check out some of KA’s backlist. <3

“I feel like someone should grab Sutton. We’re about to suffer through a couple of hours of pictures with eighteen of her closest friends. Might have some time, just the five of us.”
“I limited her to nine bridesmaids,” I said.
“That’s a limit?” Morgan asked with a huff. “I don’t think I even like nine people.”

Oh and Morgan, Jensen’s sister? She’s fantastic! Exactly my kind of person. <3

I really liked the chemistry at the beginning between the two main characters, Emery and Jensen. While both fighting against their own reservations, they just couldn’t help but gravitate toward one another.

I’m not like the average reader. I don’t like easy stories and more often than not, want to see my characters work for their relationship, I want them to deserve each other and appreciate what they have. You want to know why? Because relationships are hard work! Everything isn’t always sunshine and roses. People mess up. A lot. So I loved getting to see the struggle between these two and the issues that they were working out. It made the relationship seem more real and not like it was a part of some fantasy romance land.

“I won’t let you go. I’ll keep fighting for us because you are the only woman I have ever met who has made me feel like this.”

I have a real soft spot for sexy CEO romances. There’s just something so incredibly hot about a guy who can take charge and go for what he wants! Even when conflicted about his principles and what to do, it was evident that Jensen wanted Emery and once this was decided, he would go all out to get her. Who doesn’t want a guy like Jensen Wright chasing after them? I certainly wouldn’t mind. And while we’re on the same topic, I love how he could be this guy, but also be the gentle, fun loving, truck driving, taco eating, jean wearing Texan.

“A girl could get used to this if you’re not careful.”
“I’m not planning on being careful. Kid gloves are off. You might have to endure fancy dinners and random presents and unplanned trips on my private jet. This is the man I am, Emery, as much as the man I am when I’m with you. I’d like to have you in both worlds.”

My favourite thing about Emery BY FAR was the fact that she didn’t take crap from people. She stood up for herself, her man and her lifestyle. Someone insulted her? She took that like a freaking champ all without batting an eye and I was proud to see a heroine with a backbone. Yes, she has an influential boyfriend but that doesn’t mean that she can lay down and let him do all the fighting. She gives it back just as good.

“Jensen Wright had rewritten my world.”

So there was a big secret surrounding Jensen, something that Emery clearly didn’t know. I figured out pretty early on what it was, so then I couldn’t really understand why it was such a big deal. I get having trust issues, so maybe I just needed to rely more so on that explanation, but it felt like more than that to me. The conflict I could completely understand and I wholeheartedly agree that it was necessary. Quite well done, in my opinion. But it was then the resolution of this predicament that I wasn’t sold on. Personally, I thought it was a cop out. With how much anguish and struggle had gone into this, it was quite clearly the easy and clean way out. I don’t always want the simple, predictable way out. I want messy.

Love was hard.
It shook you to your core.
It remade you into a different person.
But that was what made it beautiful. Knowing that no one else in the world could ever make you feel like you did in that moment.
Accepting the pain and really experiencing what it meant to be together.
It moved mountains.

One thing that I did notice was that this relationship progressed really quickly. I don’t want to label it as instalove, because it doesn’t feel that way (in my opinion, at least), but considering everything happens over only a few weeks, it seemed a little quick and maybe not as believable as it could’ve been because of this.

So yes, this is my first book by this author and it definitely won’t be my last. I wasn’t head over heels in love (but I also seem to be grumpy and stingy these days :P) but I still did really enjoy it and would definitely recommend! The writing just flows so easily, I never wanted to put it down! And that cover… *fans self*. That is all for now. 😉
