First we met Jensen Wright, and I liked him. I liked the unexpected, forbidden romance he found. Then came Landon, whom I hadn’t really cared much for when I met him in Jensen’s book, but I found myself sort of falling for him. I most looked forward to Austin’s story because he’s so tragic and angsty, and if ever there were a guy who can’t get out of his own way, it’s Austin Wright.
But what of the Wright sisters? Morgan has been handed the CEO-ship of Wright Construction, and she’s been in love with Austin’s BFF Patrick since forever. Will she find happiness with him, or will she have to go look elsewhere?
I loved the little details K A Linde gives us about Morgan. She’s petite and wears sky-high heels to make herself look taller. She can see a potential romance between two people she cares about, yet she is convinced she will die alone, the foster mother to a herd of cats. She’s the most like her father (and Jensen) in temperament but looks just like her mother, with whom she yearns for a connection that, with her mother having died when Morgan was five, will never happen.
In the first three books, Linde showed us that EVERYONE knows that Morgan loves Patrick. Everyone but Patrick, that is. Here, she lets him start to see Morgan as something other than Austin’s little sister, and it is great fun to watch him do the proverbial double-take. I liked that the problems between the two of them didn’t feel manipulated or far-fetched. I also liked how Patrick views their relationship. After spending so many years oblivious to Morgan’s feelings, his framing of the two of them together is pretty awesome.
The only thing I didn’t like was the quick resolution to the corporate intrigue subplot. There were a couple of aspects to it that didn’t quite ring true. This seems like a pretty minor quibble, though, because the purpose of this thread isn’t to make you feel as if you’re watching a Law & Order episode; it’s to develop relationships between characters.
As for hotness? Oh, there is HOTNESS. K A Linde includes some scorching hot sexy times that will leave you feeling a bit … needy, if you know what I mean. Austin may be my favorite Wright brother, but Patrick is my favorite Hot Hero from this series.
Now onto Sutton. When last we saw her, she had been hit by a tragic, heartbreaking loss. I need to know she’s happy. Do you hear me, K A Linde? I NEED TO KNOW.
A new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I was just his best friend’s little sister.
But he was always more than that to me.
After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.
Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.
There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.
So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.
