The story

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?

My review

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

2.5 stars

He had touched my soul. Devoured my heart. And brought us both back to life. Jensen Wright had rewritten my world.

The Wright Brother is the first book of K.A. Linde’s new series. It tells the story of Emery and Jensen.
Emery swore ten years ago to never come close to the Wright family again, after being left heartbroken by Landon Wright. But she finds it impossible to keep the promise made to herself, when she finds herself nose to nose with Landon’s brother, Jensen.

The book is told alternately from Emery and Jensen’s point of view, letting us discover Emery and Jensen’s personalities.
I must say I had a pretty rough start with this book, and it kind of tainted my reading right from the start.
Basically at the very beginning of the book, Emery has been in a relationship for 3 years with a guy called Mitch, who is his PhD advisor. She discovers him cheating on her with another student. She then decides to throw everything away : Mitch, but also her PhD. I must say it was really hard for me to relate to Emery after that first scene, and I thought she was completely emotionless. Then she goes back home to Lubbock, sees her sister and her best friend, and no one tries to convince her not to drop out of university. They don’t even talk about it. It didn’t make sense to me. Because of what I considered inconsistencies, the connection didn’t happen between me and the characters, and it prevented me from jumping right into the story.

Same thing for Jensen. I love being smitten over male book characters when I read romance novels, but it kind of didn’t happen for me with Jensen.

I thought the writing was good though, and the book was very easy to read. Definitely a page turner. I loved Emery and Jensen’s chemistry, and slowly got to appreciate their characters. But too slowly to really care, when drama hit them… And I really didn’t get what all the drama was about actually.

I am intrigued by the Wright family though, and I might read the next book in this series when it comes out anyway. Maybe I will feel more concerned with Heidi and Landon?
