‘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!
