This book. I knew it was going to gut me. I was prepared for the emotional ride of getting Sutton’s story. What I wasn’t prepared for was the happiness that some of these pages exuded from her. She went from this shell of a character the past few books, to this fun, bright character we’d grown to love. David was perfect for her. He never pressured her, and was always there for her no matter what. This book was phenomenal, and that ending?! I need The Wright One ASAP!!! You all need to grab this book.
Ever lost someone you loved? A spouse, a friend, a family member? Ever wondered if after their passing your life would be yours again? Your grief felt endless?
When Sutton Wright experiences a loss that puts her perfect life to a screeching halt, she is left with all those thoughts.
David has been there. For an entire year. Helping Sutton with her young son. Helping her become open to love again. He knew he loved her but he wanted her to feel safe with him. He wanted her to trust in him and what he was feeling.
Thennnnn of course in true Linde fashion the whammy comes. And UMMMMMM its DEF one I didn’t see coming!
Read this book. Go on Sutton and David’s journey! See what the other Wright family members are up to as well!!
I can’t want for part 2 of this story!
4.5 stars for - Wright Love - book one of the Wright Love duet / book five overall of the Wright series by K.A. Linde. This book can be read as a complete stand-alone but the series is highly enjoyable and it’s one I recommend all the time. Once again we are back in Lubbock, Texas where the Wright family has stood by for the last year and helped however they could as the youngest sibling grieved the loss of her spouse.
Sutton Wright fell head over heels for Maverick while still in college. Getting pregnant and married before even turning twenty-one wasn’t planned but she loved her little family beyond words. Watching as her husband collapsed in front of her from an unknown heart condition felt like her own heart stopped beating and like it would never mend again. Over time with the help of all her friends and family things started to look a little less bleak and one person in particular has always been there when she needed him most.
David Calloway took over as the CFO of Wright Construction when Morgan moved up to take Jensen’s place. In the last year he has become an honorary member of the Wright family and by some odd twist of fate he was there the day Maverick Wright died and has been there every day since whether to help with Jason or be a shoulder to cry on for Sutton. While he has always found her beyond beautiful, helping her heal has been his only priority but now that he sees her coming out of her shell more and more he’s hoping she might give him a real chance beyond the friend zone.
This was an emotional, angsty roller coaster ride that leaves you wanting so much more. I can’t wait to see where part two takes us since that cliffhanger in part one left me with my jaw on the floor!!!
5 heart-wrenching stars.
Back last year, I message Kyla and begged for a Sutton story. I mean talk about being gutter. The marathon where hubs died was tooooo heartbreaking.
My level of angst when starting this book was through the roof.
First. You have Sutton. Who we’ve followed as a sub-character in every single Wright sibling books!!!
Then At the end of ‘Mistake’ we meet David. Who seems awesome. During ‘Secret’ we see the shell that Sutton becomes and can only hope that her future gets better and maybe includes David.
Now we are up to the ‘Love’.
Oh my gosh. Love Love Love describes this.
I loved the struggle Sutton dealt with and how Kyla portrayed moving on when a spouse or partner dies, very unexpectedly.
The devotion the hero shows. The understanding he has of her feelings and where she’s at is profoundly touching
I lived and breathed this until I finished it. Stop lights. Waiting rooms. Checkout lines. I read it in less than a day and am crushed wait by for the ‘one’.
This is a duet and doesn’t end well. High, high hopes for the next ‘one’. Ba dump bump *chuckles*
Sutton deals with still loving her deceased husband but wants to move on. There is a huge twist in here I never saw coming. I blame ‘joel’ as Kyla posted on her fb page. :)
I highly, highly recommend this book. And while it could be read as a stand-alone I wouldn’t. Start with the first Wright brother and embrace this family. They flipping rock.
Sexy times: high
Angst: medium To high
I've been waiting not so patiently for this book . Sutton and Davids story gave me everything and the angst Gahhhh!! One thing I love about KA linde is she gives the best angst . But more than that a bit of everything from emotion to HOT sexiness and family . It always feels like going home when I read another Wright family book . But that Cliffy eeeeek! I'm all for a good CH , now to wait and find out if they get their HEA !!!
Ok ok ok. So we all know I am a huge K.A. Linde fan. And yes with every book she writes, I always say it’s the best ever. But seriously, it really is the best. With every book, the stories get better and better. The Wright Love is no different than that. It is the best. I have loved all the Wright books but if I had to pick one story, Sutton’s story would be my favorite.
Sutton is a young widow raising a toddler. She’s had a rough year since the untimely death of her husband. Sutton is finally ready to start living again. What she didn’t anticipate was David. David took over CFO when Morgan took the CEO position. For the past year he has gotten to know the Wright family. He has also helped Sutton with babysitting her son Jason. He gotten to know Sutton and has understood and given her all the time she has needed. Their friendship is effortless. They get along great without any pressure of taking things further. This is what startles Sutton when she finds herself in David’s arms.
This book got me. Like, had my heart breaking, had me smiling, and made my jaw drop. Now, yes, it ends an a bit of a cliffhanger but don’t worry. Book two of Sutton story will be out soon. So don’t get too worked up. Can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
Twenty-four years old and a widow. Sutton has had to cope with life as she never thought she would. A single mom to the most adorable boy, Jason.
David - new to Texas and Wright Construction, met Sutton on the worst day of her life; the day she lost her husband.
No one would ever suspect or imagine the friendship that would begin between these two. David is a hot, young, career-driven man who has spent the past year admiring Sutton from afar. Yes, he's part of the Wright "family" so their paths cross but David's feelings have been smoldering for a while. Sutton, on the other hand, is unsure of how to "move forward" from Maverick.
First things first, David is a saint. I love a great alpha male but a sweet, caring, loving and understanding man is just as attractive, if not more. He's so patient with Sutton, he can see their relationship changing but he takes his time.
Once again, KA Linde has given us characters who make you smile, swoon and want the best for. Her writing and storytelling flows like a perfect song.
Seeing Sutton come out of the darkness into the light again was inspiring, seeing David be the man that Sutton and Jason needs is also beautiful.
But wait - KA Linde has one hell of a twist at the end of this book and my jaw dropped and a gasp was heard..thank goodness the 2nd book, The Wright One is only a few weeks away!
A beautiful story of a shattered woman who is getting her second chance at love. Linde does an amazing job portraying the pain and sorrow of losing a loved one, the wonder and stress of being a parent to a toddler, and the cautious hope of a new relationship. She wraps it all up with angst and scandal in her signature style. Absolutely loved it and can’t wait for part two!!
I have been a huge fan of this series. I love this family and their devotion to each other. Even the significant others have always been a part of this family. I knew Sutton's story was going to be hard to read since she was so happily married in the early books, until tragedy struck her.
David has been interested in Sutton since the day he met her...the day her husband died. He has always been there for her as a friend. When Sutton finally starts to look at David as something more, he couldn't be happier.
This is part 1 of a duet and does end with a cliffhanger. I loved the story building and Sutton starting to live again. I loved that David has really stayed around for her as a friend for the last year. He has been her rock. This story melted my heart and I can't wait to see what happens in part 2!
Kyla, kyla, kyla. Man, do I love your books. This was another one that once I started, I couldn’t put down. I had to know what happened by the end. It was a great short read. Sometimes, I just want a fast read. Of course it ends on a cliffhanger but we don’t have to wait long for the next, as the sequel comes out in a few weeks.
I haven’t read all of the wright books. I read the first one and the second one, the brother is named after my son. I just thought it would be weird to read a love story with my sons name in it so I just haven’t picked up the other books. You don’t really need to though. I never once felt confused or out of place by reading this one and not the others.
Sutton is the youngest sister and her husband died of a freak heart failure a year before. She has one child and she is very alone. We start the book with her talking to her husband at his gravesite and her saying she can’t be sad anymore. And she needs to start living her life again. I can understand that. Cue to her seeing a family friend slash coworker of the Wright industries David. There’s sex, fun, loss, and information I did not see coming. Kyla does surprise information like no other. I won’t say anymore as I don’t want to spoil the book. I like Sutton and David together. They seem to balance each other out well. great chemistry. And I can’t wait to see how everything plays out in the sequel.
Oh my god... I didn’t see that coming. Can’t wait for the conclusion and thank god I don’t have to wait long! This had me from the very beginning. This is really a must read! It does end on a cliffhanger but SO worth it.
Son of a biscuit eater! I have kids! This is my way of cursing! I knew I'd love Sutton's story. So far, I love half of it. Let's be honest though, we knew this type of ending was coming. K.A. Linde can't go too long without leaving us with an angsty ending! I think she starts getting twitchy if she hasn't received a threat to receive a box full of dicks in the mail lately. Which is exactly what she's getting! I knew it was coming and I still wasn't ready for it!
Sutton and David. Even when the book was about a different Wright sibling, I could feel the connection between these two. Sutton is damaged right now. Who wouldn't be after tragically losing your best friend and lover, father of your child. David is just there for her. He doesn't expect anything. Doesn't try to say they right words. Doesn't try to force her to move on at a certain speed. It's almost as if he really understands the pain and grief that she's going through.
Sutton was a bit back and forth, slightly hesitant to start anything. It's not just herself that she has to think about. David was the ever perfect gentleman. I love the way he is with Jason and how encouraging he is with Sutton. He doesn't pressure her. He knows when to back off. And then a bomb was dropped. Like, left my mouth hanging open kind of bomb. I sat there, blankly staring at my phone for about 5 minutes just trying to process what I'd just read. It wasn't happening. Then I read 'The End'. Of course it would end on that note. I guess we'll get our answers in a few weeks...thankfully.
