Book Review: The Wright Brother by KA Linde

The Wright Brother

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?

First, can we take a moment to enjoy that cover? I mean, come on, how was I not going to pick this book up? 

Ever since a Wright brother broke her heart senior year of high school, Emery has sworn of the family. After finding her professor boyfriend cheating on her, she drops out of school and finds herself back in her hometown and crashing the wedding of the sister of said guy who broke her heart. What Emery doesn't expect, though, is to take one glance at Jensen Wright and feel a pull so strong she can't seem to stay away. Jensen needs to know who the sexy woman was at his sister's wedding, and the last person he expects her to be is his little brother's ex-girlfriend. But her past means nothing to him if it means getting to know her a little better…

This book had so much potential, but from the start I wasn't a fan of the characters. I liked the ideas the author had, but the way she executed them were just a little too over the top and a little too rushed. I wasn't a fan of the Emery and I got annoyed with the drama that was thrown in along the way just to act as an obstacle for Emery and Jensen. 

While this book did pick up about halfway through, I still found myself skimming the end just to finish. There were such cliche things to happen (jealous of someone when nothing was happening, crazy ex who wants him back, etc) and I wanted a more original story. I think that because I didn't like Emery, I wasn't able to enjoy her story or her relationship with Jensen as much as I wanted to. 

Overall this was just an okay read for me. Too many things started to bother me as the story continued and I just wanted to finish the book by the end. I didn't like the friendships or the siblings and the stereotypical roles they fell into. While the cover promised a steamy, addicting read, it missed the mark for me.
