Title – The Wright Mistake
Author – K.A. Linde
Publication Date – August 8, 2017
I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.
He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.
The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.
A second chance might destroy us both.
Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.
Oh my goodness! This book! This book had so many different feels that my head is still spinning and my heart is pounding out of my chest. Given that I’ve read the other siblings’ stories, I knew going in that The Wright Mistake would be angsty and highly emotional. However, I wasn’t quite prepared for what K. A. Linde actually delivered. Austin’s book will make readers feel a gamut of emotions from positive to negative, but above all – hopeful.
“Austin Wright was broken…and I wasn’t about to try to fit the pieces back together.”
I was incredibly touched by Linde’s portrayal of Austin’s alcoholic traits. Having grown up with an alcoholic, it’s such a sensitive topic for me, so I often find myself in tune with these characters more so than usual. Austin and Julia were no exception, as their feelings were quite often ones that I have experienced. Austin has always been intriguing to me and in The Wright Mistake, it became abundantly clear as to why. He had such a complex personality, masking emotions and numbing much of his everyday life. My heart ached for him on more than one occasion, but it was Julia who was able to make it soar. I loved the way she defended herself and was this independent firecracker. Though she had deep insecurities and scars, she seemed to wear them with pride at times and it made me love her, wishing she could be in my circle of friends.
“When we spoke, we mixed about as well as oil and water, but our bodies were another story. We were the ocean waves, destined to crash together.”
Julia and Austin may have been combatant together at times, but their journey is definitely one for the books. The Wright Mistake sent an important message about loving others, as well as loving ourselves, and finding hope when we think all is lost. K.A Linde’s writing is as addictive as ever with incredible dialogue and real life scenarios that readers will not soon forget. If you’re ready for a read packed with emotion and grit, I promise that you don’t want to miss The Wright Mistake!
