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 puzzl

'The Wright Brother' was my first read by this author and while I didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have liked, I liked the author’s writing style, so I’m looking forward to reading more of her books in the future. K. A. Linde delivers an enjoyable read, filled with sweetness, sexiness, angst and drama. So, if you’re a fan of this author, this one may be the book for you.

Emery moves back to her hometown when she finds out her boyfriend is a cheating bastard. She leaves college, realizing she’s not as happy with her life as she thought she is. When her best friend decides to drag her out at a wedding, a Wright wedding, Emery is a little reluctant to attend, mostly because she didn’t forget that years ago a Wright brother broke her heart.

Jensen Wright notices Emery at the reception. He’s the oldest Wright brother, divorced, a manwhore and wants Emery in his bed no matter what. Emery knows she should stay away from Jensen since he’s her ex-boyfriend’s brother, but she can’t deny the strong attraction she feels towards him, so staying away is impossible.

“How did he have this kind of effect on me? Did all women feel like their bodies were on fire when Jensen Wright settled his gaze on them?”

As time passes and Jensen gets to know Emery better, he starts to want more out of their relationship.

Sadly, this was just an okay read for me. Like I said, I enjoyed the author’s writing just fine, but nothing really stood out to me. The two main characters were okay, but I didn’t find anything remarkable about them. Their portrayal was good enough and both of them were likeable, sure, but I didn’t find them to be very interesting. Maybe because I didn’t connect too much with them.

Also, I didn’t feel any chemistry between these characters. None! There were some sweet and sexy moments between them, sure, but I didn’t feel the passion between them. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed with the romantic aspect. The misunderstanding and miscommunication between Emery and Jensen got on my nerves as the story unfolded and all the drama created by some supportive characters gave me a headache.

The story-line was okay, even if I would have preferred the story to progress in a different way. Also, I wouldn’t have minded more angst, instead all the silly drama I mentioned above. Just saying…

Overall, just an okay read for me!

The Wright Brother is a fresh start to a new series by KA Linde. It will follow the Wright brothers, but this book can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

Emery Robinson has recently moved back to her hometown in Texas. The last thing she expects the week she’s back is to run into the Wright family, but her best friend won’t take no for an answer when dragging her out, so there they are. Emery has some unsavory feelings about this family from a over a decade ago when she used to date Landon Wright i

There are times where you are reading a story and you are so engrossed in the story line and all the possibilities of what will happen next only to find that the end result isn’t the way you expected and the story slowly deflates. Sadly, this is what happened to me reading this book.

It could be 2,5 but definitely not 3 for me, so 2 it is... It was nothing special for me, just a mediocre read...

It has a simple plot line with some unnecessary drama.

- Both the hero and the heroine have a cheating ex.

- The sexy billionaire has a tortured past and a bitchy ex-wife who still wants him back and uses their son as a threat.

- The beautiful and hot woman he is attracted to happens to be his brother’s girlfriend 10 years ago... That brother is now mar/>It

I scanned the blurb and saw "billionaire CEO" and I was on it. I wanted to read this before even knowing what it was officially about.

The Wright Brother is my first KA Linde read. I enjoyed it, but I couldn't seem to warm up to the hero Jensen Wright. While reading, I kept asking myself "When am I gonna fall in love with you Jensen?!" For a billionaire CEO, he was really passive IMO and annoying at times. I felt like the heroine Emery was the strong one and Jensen was the weak one, a little

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

You know we all have our book rules, the things that we don't read because they make us uncomfortable. I am pretty lax in mine, but boy do I hate the idea of my heroine dating the sibling of her former lover. However, I also have this addiction to Linde's books. Even after I read the blurb I was like 'oh crap, I have to read this', because Linde writes angst and tortures me like no other. So while I am normally running away from books like this I had to jump in.

You don’t find love. It finds you. It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate, and what’s written in the stars.

Love found me in K.A. Linde’s newest romance, The Wright Brother. Oh DID I LOVE THIS STORY!!! So wonderful…so WOW!!! I was immediately HOOKED…HYPNOTIZED. I did not want to stop reading. This story swiftly seduced me, The Wright Brother wrapping itself around me, where I did not want to let go. This book BLEW ME AWAY!

Surprisingly I didn’t have any problems with the heroine dating H’s brother 10 years ago – I read the blurb and it wasn’t an issue for me in this book.
Surprisingly I didn’t have many problems with the hero being a player – there was no sex-scene with OW, no cheating, only short information about his hook-up preferences.
I liked the heroine – not a wall-flower with tendency to celibacy. Young sassy woman who dated and wasn’t shy in the bedroom.

It’s been awhile since I last read a K.A. Linde book and let me just say that The Wright Brother was the right book to remind me once again why I need to rectify that issue and get back to reading more of her books especially this series.

This will be short and to the point. Didn't really feel this one. I've read other books by Linde and had a much better reading experience with them. Here there was a rather mundane plotline. No real depth or polish. From the insta-lust to the insta-love in three weeks timeline with these characters and all the trumped up angst, I just wasn't falling for it. Lots of hot sex - but no meaningful lovemaking - which lead me to disconnect from the characters involved. No emotional development that was ...more

I had this book sitting on my Kindle for about a year and the only thoughts I have right now is why did I wait so long to read this?! I finished this in one sitting and I’m already one clicking the next book in the series.

I felt the chemistry between Emery and Jenson from the first time they saw each other. Emery dated Jenson’s brother Landon back in high school. So it’s been quite a few years since she’s seen the Wright family. So when Jensen sees Emery again he doesn’t recognize her. And man

Jensen Wright. How do I even begin to tell you how much I loved him. I have a thing for the bad boys in books. The damaged bad boys just take the cake for me. And Emery? Just adored her! I loved how she didn't take any crap and was able to put Jensen in his place when he was being a jer

Charming, sexy and fun!

This is a story about heartbreak, mistakes, discovering one's self, and falling in love.

It is an alluring story that combines a delicious, mysterious, wealthy businessman with an intelligent, beautiful, wary PhD student, complete with a plot filled with smoking tension, sizzling chemistry, racy banter, witty dialogue and dreamy romance.

The writing is smooth. The supporting characters are intriguing and lovable. And the plot is entertaini
"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 lust-induced kiss in the dark, but you couldn't even fool yourself. This one was everything."

I found this book free on Amazon. I believe it was my first by K.A. Linde.
This book is first in a series but can be read as a standalone. Each book is about a Wright sibling. There are five of them: Jensen, Austin, Landon, Morgan, and Sutton.

I am in love with the whole WRIGHT family. I love seeing them together, I love the drama, and I love that even though they all seem to be a little broken, particularly the brothers, they are there for each other. Even more than the sibilings, I became enraptured the drama that befell Jensen and Emery's relationship, and I couldn't put it down.

The hero Jensen is more stoic than your average hero. Very bus

Very disappointing book.
The h is impulsive and immature. A PhD student??? Hummm I had a hard time believing that.
The H overly cussed and it bothered me.

One look and insta lust.
One kiss and insta love.

Too much drama with exes.
And why all said exes had to be so mean??

Sorry, it didn’t work for me.

I’ll try book two nontheless.

Sexy, intelligent and wealthy Jensen Wright seems like the perfect catch, but when information starts revealing itself about the mysterious billionaire, it might be too much for the elusive Emery.

Simply put this novel has a little bit of everything you might want in a standalone contemporary romance. Jensen Wright intrigues me. When I read him, it’s like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is a very loyal man who keeps to himself, but when crossed or betrayed there is no going back with him. H

3.5 stars!!!

“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/>

The Wright Brother was an entertaining and angsty read. It had steam, drama, and a bit of taboo/forbidden, since the heroine had dated the hero's younger brother in high school. The story revolves around Jensen Wright and Emery Robinson and is told from both of their points of view.

Overall, I liked both Jensen and Emery and rooted for them to get their happy ending, but it was a little too instalove for me. It didn't seem possible that secretive and commitment-phobe Jensen would suddenly drop all his

I've been a long time and huge fan of K.A. Linde. I have even dubbed her as my Angst Queen. Whenever I see that she is releasing a new book I know my heart will be ripped out and she will put it all back together again in typical Linde fashion. With that being said it hurts my heart to say that this book lacked the angst and passion that I have grown used to by this author. I had a hard time feeling the connection with Emery and Jensen.

This was such a good book! I thought it started off fantastic and horribly strong. The characters are well developed. The angst, emotions, everything is all there and everything you'd expect from Kyla. I honestly was not expecting what I got. It was so much more and I enjoyed every second of it.

Jenson and Emery both had some sexy chemistry that you could just feel! Sure it could be classified as forbidden and it felt like that most of the time, and that is why I think I
