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.

3 Stars!!

'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.

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 Land

THE WRIGHT BROTHER is the latest adult contemporary standalone by the Queen of angst, K.A. Linde. She has successfully created another Hero that is sure to have her loyal fans swooning. Although this does not appear to be a series, I wouldn’t be surprised if there ends up being some additional books written as there are four

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.


The possibility of angst, heartbreak, flashbacks, all disappeared when the plot went into Jensen’s ex and his big secret. Which for the life of me I can’t understand how after seven years this is a secret?

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 married to a bitch.

descriptionThis was just an OK read for me. I never warmed up to Jensen, to be honest. For me, he just came off like an asshole for most of the book.

3.5 Wright Stars

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 o

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.

2.5 stars

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.
The hero wasn’t the sweetest one, but not an

‘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.
It certainly moved me.’

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!

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 went into this book thinking that it was just going to be okay but I found that I really liked it. I’m a little torn if I want to put a 4 Star rating or a 5 Star. Normally if I think it is a 4.5 I will round up to a 5 Star. I think I will just classify as a 4.25 STARS!

Jensen Wright is swoon worthy but I will say he will have you going back and forth for at least half of the book deciding if he is worthy of your fondness.

I really liked Emery…….she had balls which is always a great characteris

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

Holy hell! K.A. Linde has done it again! This story was PERFECTION! She is one of my favorite authors for a reason here folks! Her writing blows me away Every. Single. Time.

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 jerk face.

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 entertaining and engaging as it takes you from

"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.

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 really enjoyed this! I loved how Emery didn't take crap from anyone, especially Vanessa and Marc, let alone the CEO that's never had to chase a woman before. I love a strong and fierce heroine and Emery was certainly that. I felt that the storyline was predictable, but it still held my interest. But what's even more exciting!?!

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. He meet

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 auth
