Title – The Wright Boss
Author – K.A. Linde
Publication Date – May 16, 2017
I’ve always had one rule:
Don’t mix business and pleasure.
But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.
If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.
We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.
Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.
I don’t know how she manages it, but K.A. Linde is continuing to grow in her writing and getting better and better. The Wright family is some of the best work that I have seen come from this author with its irresistible characters and angsty perfection. The Wright Boss delivered so many different feels and has left me wanting to shout “READ THIS BOOK!” from the rooftops.
“Here, we were together. Here, the rest of the world didn’t exist. Here, he wasn’t my boss. We were just two people taking what we could get—to hell with the consequences.”
Landon and Heidi had such an up and down, push and pull, aspect to their relationship that gave me serious cravings for more. Just when I thought things were starting to go on the right track, something would happen to surprise me and shake the entire storyline up. It lent a sense of honesty and realism to their romance, which resulted in my inability to put the book down. Not only did these characters completely work as a couple, but their individual personalities shone through as well. Each had their insecurities and strengths that defined them, yet they somehow complemented the other leading character as well. For example, Heidi was such a hard worker and driven when it came to her career aspirations. It allowed her to empathize with Landon’s priorities, even if she didn’t always like the way things happened. On the other hand, Landon had been burned so many times that he could have difficulty with trust. Given Heidi’s past, she knew how to approach him and the situations they found themselves in. There was just something about the way Linde wrote these two that was raw and special and heartfelt. I found myself rooting for them from the very beginning and had to just keep turning the pages to see how everything would piece together.
“I’d tried to forget him. I’d tried to stay away from him. I’d tried not to look at him. All I did was fail.”
The Wright Boss is certainly Linde’s best work to date, but it’s also some of the genre’s finest. Although the romance was a shining star, the family connections elevated the book to the next level for me. The way that she has written these siblings is addictive and all-consuming. I was left utterly satisfied in terms of story completion, yet I was still yearning for more from each and every one of these characters. Linde has produced some incredible work, but she has hit her stride with the close-knit Wright siblings and I am already dying to get into Austin’s head and see just what happens!
