The Wright Brother ~ K. A. Linde ~ New Release and Review

  twbbanner       TWB Amazon
 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?

Review Copy Provided by Author

I really struggled with how to rate this book - mainly because some of the things I loved about it ended up also being some of my bigger pet peeves.

Location - I loved that this was set in Lubbock, it's a little jewel of a city hiding in the South Plains and the home of my alma mater. My issue - Ms Linde seemed determined to remind us the book was set in Lubbock, but then was fairly generic when describing movements around the city. There was also extreme repetition of "Texas Tech" or "Texas Tech University". Which gave things a very formal vibe. It's very common to refer to the school as "Tech" and the emblem as the "Double T"

Emery - a female character strong enough to make a change when life isn't going how she wants it or to fight for what she wants. Who on the flip side seems to run for the thing she just fought for then flip flops back into a little woman role. I wasn't ever 100% what to make of her.

Jensen - a wonderful brother and alpha character who has a soft spot for children, but he refuses to man up and find out the truth behind what he thinks he sees.

Like I said, I struggled with how to rate this book because it is well written and I did like Emery and Jensen together. But, I felt like there was some drama for the sake of drama and maybe some missed opportunities to expand on parts of the story. I'm not ready to write this series off yet, I am curious to see Landon and Heidi's story.
