THE WRIGHT BROTHER
By K.A Linde
Standalone – Contemporary Romance
Release Day: February 28th, 2017
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.
I was so excited to read this book, and start this new series, by KA Linde because I absolutely loved her Record series. And I am happy to report that she did not disappoint.
Emery comes back to her hometown of Lubbock Texas after a bad breakup with her boyfriend and all she wants to do is forget about her past. But that all goes down the drain when a deeper part of her past comes up and she runs into a familiar face of Jensen Wright, the brother of the man who broke her heart in high school.
Jensen has his own things going on. Some bits and pieces. While they go into the relationship both thinking its going to be a fling we as readers know that just ain’t going to happen. Sure enough, Jensen finds himself falling for Emery hard and fast and it turns his life in a tailspin because it’s like he forgets how to be a person. He says stupid things (which we all have done), he does stupid (again guilty), but the fact that he never quits is what makes you root for him.
I love the dynamic of their relationship. They both have a hard past and dealt with people who cheated on them so naturally trust will be an issue. Once they get over that hurdle (which is a big one), they become that romantic couple that is too cute that it makes you sick. I was just happy that we got to see a lot of those moments because I really like reading them together.
While I love the couple and their relationship, the story did lack that ‘shocking factor’. The twist of the story will likely be guessed by most of you out there but that does nothing to deter from the story. For me, it actually enhanced it even though I knew what was going to happen.
This is part of a new series where it will follow a new couple with each book. The kind of series that I like and I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us.
