A new standalone contemporary office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde... Heidi swore she'd never date one of her coworkers, let alone her best friend's ex-boyfriend. But when Landon Wright shows up at Wright Construction as her sexy new boss, the office gets heated. And there's only one way to cool it down.
Sometimes there’s simply nothing better than a cute and sweet story that gives you a bunch of feels. It had kindness and heart, swooniness and wit, drama and angst. All together, it created the perfect blend of a romance novel to make what is The Wright Boss. You can’t tell me that you don’t want to read about old friends who realize they have a spark and want to explore it. That’s the stuff we are suckered into always wanting! At times my cheeks hurt from these two, they’re simply awesome.
“In the meantime, you are not alone. Emery might be tried and true, but I’m not going anywhere. You don’t have to want a family like that when we’re standing right in front of you, accepting you into the fold. It might take some getting used to. I know we’re an…interesting bunch. But you never have to search for family again when you have mine right in front of you.”
I always liked Heidi, though she didn’t have a few immature moments. It was Landon in the other hand though who stole the show. At the beginning, I really wasn’t sure what was going on with him. He made some questionable decisions and I wasn’t sure if he would be able to come back strong enough to wind over Heidi’s (and my) affection. So of course, he had to prove me wrong and do it tenfold. Overall, they were two likeable characters who just got stuck with some difficult decisions. Sure, they could’ve been handled better, but it’s going through these processes that really made the couple stronger.
“You couldn’t be with me. And I wanted to forget you.”
“You can’t forget me, Heidi. No matter how far you try to push me away or come up with reasons that we can’t be together, we will always end up right here.” I pointed at the pavement between us. “Because I am yours, and you are mine. And we are not just a finite point on a line; we are limitless.”
This is only my second book by Ms. Linde, but I’m extremely impressed with her writing abilities and I will definitely be picking up more. This book alone was well paced and descriptive, but without being overwhelming or heavy handed. I think this is a serious skill and the current book world needs a lot more of this! Sure it comes with experience too, but LA Linde writes like a seasoned pro which makes her books even that much more enjoyable to read.
Sometimes, love cracked your heart open to show you what really mattered.
Her. Only her.
I would like to point out that while this was cute and engrossing, it was also fairly predictable. But in this case, that isn’t always a bad thing! I’d rather have an author that can execute a story well and do justice to her characters rather than one that will throw readers for a loop just because. I actually really enjoyed the plot and small twists from time to time and loved these two together.
I like how comfortable the characters each were with the other. Granted, this comes from years of being friends beforehand but their feelings seemed to progress so easily and naturally from friendship into love and affection. Then there’s the fact that they were each upfront and acted upon these feelings instead of hiding or denying them. Definitely bonus points for maturity here. There’s no confusion, no beating around the bush. Sure at times everyone is entitled to a few misunderstandings but everything gets worked out fairly quickly.
All in all, a successful book two in the Wright Brothers series. Keep in mind, they can all be read as standalone. Next up is Austin’s book and I feel like that one will be explosive. Can’t wait!
