5 WRIGHT IS RIGHT CROWNS
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 business-like in all of his dealings, professional and personal, he never seems to let his emotions get involved. He keeps himself cut off from everyone but his siblings. While, this might make him seem like a gerk, Jensen is far more than that. His life, basically being forced to take over the company of his father’s and take care of his siblings, has altered him. On top of that, there is baggage from a previous relationship weighing him down. So while, yes, there are moments that he seems emotionally disconnected, readers shouldn’t fault him for that, and I don’ think they will once they understand his motivations. What I did love about his character is that eventually makes himself vulnerable to loving again. Knowing his background, it shows his strength and fortitude to put himself on the line again, and he is rewarded in the end.
Emery is an enigma. Incredibly intelligent and self-aware, yet she doesn’t seem to know what she wants to do with her future for most of the novel. She is a tom-boy through and through, yet she can dress up and get dolled up to look like a knockout. She is fun and laid-back, yet she can go for the jugular if you cross her or the people she loves. Emery has so many facets to her personality, and each component will make readers adore her as a heroine.
The plot of this story surprised me. Based on the synopsis, I thought I had a pretty good idea abut the journey these characters would go on, but Ms. Linde did not take this story there. And even though it is not what I expected, I enjoyed the plot line she created immensely. It added much more not only to the characters but also the story structure. I also love the drama and the secrets, seeing the Wright siblings in their own mini-relationship issues, and seeing Jensen and Emery continually try to make their relationship work. As K.A. Linde says in her book, “Love is hard,” and The Wright Brother truly captures that idea. Readers see with every chapter that love is hard, but they also see that love is worth it. Love can change a people, make them whole, and give them a place to call home.
The Wright Brother is another must read from K.A. Linde. I adore not just Jensen but all of the Wright siblings. The plot line kept my engaged from the beginning, and that ending left my heart with a warm suffusion of happiness. And the little teaser for the next book at the end!! Temptation might just kill me.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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?

Her smile was magnetic, and I just wanted to kiss her. I mean…I’d wanted to kiss her all night. But sitting there, in front of the last lit house, with Christmas music playing in the background and her smile radiating joy, there was nowhere else I’d rather be. That thought hit me so suddenly and I didn’t even know why.
I put my truck into park, leaned over to her side of the car, and pushed my hand up into her dark hair. She froze, silhouetted by the light display behind her. Her eyes locked with mine, green meeting brown, and her eyes widened with surprise. She breathed out softly, and I could feel her pulse ratchet up at my touch.
This was the girl who had pulled me across the room at Sutton’s wedding, like a magnet finding its pair. This was the tension that I’d felt when we first spoke. Here was the world of desire and lust that had clouded both of our minds ever since our first kiss.
My face was only inches from hers. I wanted to take what was mine. I wanted to claim her mouth and then her body right here in the cab of my truck, like we were young, wild, and carefree.
But, instead, I couldn’t seem to stop staring at her.
She laughed lightly to try to defuse the tension. But it wasn’t possible, and it was a feeble effort.
“Are you going to kiss me?” she whispered boldly.
I didn’t need any further prodding. I crushed my lips against hers. It was like striking a match. Our lips moved against each other, desperate with the need to get closer, to have more. She opened her mouth for me, and I brushed my tongue against hers. The groan that emanated from deep in the back of her throat made my dick twitch. Our tongues volleyed for position. She was just as aching for attention as I was.
I heard the click of her belt buckle, and soon, she was pushing her body closer, moving over the divide of my truck. My hands fell to her ass, and I effortlessly hoisted her up and into my seat. She squeaked in shock but didn’t break contact. Instead, she straddled me and let her hands wander across my chest.
My hands never left her ass because, damn, did that woman have an ass. She was grinding up against me, and I moved into a full-blown hard-on at her ministrations. She must have realized what she was doing to me because, when she swiveled her hips in place, she moaned against the feel of my dick.
In that moment, I didn’t give a shit that we were acting like teenagers, parked outside of a stranger’s house, bucking against each other for just an ounce of satisfaction. I was ready to strip her bare and fuck her until she forgot every word to every Christmas song and only remembered my name.
That was, until she rocked back just a little too hard, and a loud honk erupted from the hood of the truck.
