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.
I love the Wright siblings; they’re a close knit family who has each other’s back no matter the situation, partly because they’ve grown up largely on their own due to their parents’ deaths and partly because their bond helps see them through their self-destructive ways as well as any drama or stress that is brought into their lives.
Through Jensen, Landon, and Austin’s books, readers have witnessed Morgan’s strength and drive to maintain Wright Construction’s well-respected name and prove her business sense and abilities to succeed in a world, mostly dominated and led by men.
Morgan Wright is a heroine that many readers can identify with because a lot of us find it difficult to balance our professional and personal lives just like she does in The Wright Secret. As the newly named CEO of her family’s company, work dominates her every waking hour, leaving her very little time for herself or any down time to pursue a significant other, which is just fine by her until her long-time crush, who happens to be Austin’s best friend, starts to see her as someone other than ‘his best friend’s little sister.’
Patrick, like a lot of guys, is oblivious to Morgan’s feelings for him; he’s never truly seen her as a woman…at least in terms of attraction, but when she takes a risk and shows him exactly what he wants, even though he’s caught off guard, he soon realizes that there is one Wright sibling who no longer fits the familial bond that he has with all of the other ones.
Patrick is the perfect laid back guy to counter Morgan’s workaholic demeanor and help her learn to live for more than just her career. And while it takes them a bit to get on the same page, keeping what they have a secret from those who love them, their relationship can’t remain hidden for long given how close the Wright crew is and the fallout of the lies could turn out to cause more problems for Patrick and Morgan than just her family’s reaction.
I’ve enjoyed every Wright book that K.A. Linde has written; each one has been steamy, sweet, and a bit angsty, showcasing the siblings’ love for one another and matching them with their perfect other half. Patrick and Morgan are a great couple who help even each other out when it comes to work vs. play.
I do have to admit that I did feel like the drama that was created in The Wright Secret focused on people outside of Patrick and Morgan’s relationship, leaving them to deal with the residual effects of others’ actions, which I didn’t mind too much, but things seemed to move pretty quickly between them without having to deal with too much fallout, even with lying to those closest to them. And, maybe it’s just because I’m used to the Wright men struggling when it came to finding love that I expected things to be more dramatic, but maybe that’s exactly why it wasn’t, given both Patrick and Morgan’s personalities, but it just seemed too easy.
Overall, though, The Wright Secret is a great addition to the other Wright siblings’ stories, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to read Sutton’s book – there’s a lot of pain to work through and I’m sure it’s going to be one angsty ride as Sutton tries to accept her husband’s death and her new feelings for someone other than the man she thought she would love forever.
