Well, if Buddy Holly's birthplace didn't put Lubbock Texas on your radar then its resident K.A. Linde will with this story of two people who, because of their cheating ex's actions, find it hard to trust. At his sister's wedding Jensen, the handsome CEO of the family's business, couldn't ignore the sparks between himself and the beautiful stranger going by the name of Em - he didn't do long-term and her 'just visiting family' fit right in to his rule of not sleeping with anyone from Lubbock. However, this Billionaire had assumed a lot.. he'd assumed Em wasn't going to stay, he assumed he'd never met her before, he assumed it was going to be one and done, he assumed he could keep his distance from her after one night, he assumed a hell of a lot more... and he was wrong every time.
Emery was back home in Lubbock after a ten year gap studying for her PhD in history but found herself reevaluating her life goals after she caught her boyfriend cheating on her. So now she's living with her pregnant sister/husband/daughter until she figures out what to do with her life.. but the one thing she does know is that she wants nothing to do with any of the Wright siblings. She'd spent two of her High School years dating Landon Wright and it ended badly.. so nope never gonna happen.. but, when she gets an eyeful of the charismatic droolworthy older brother Jensen Wright, Emery is very very tempted. Although their libidos are saying "yes yes yes" and "when when when" - Emery's head is still in charge.. but not for long. And very soon there's a date, a sheepskin rug, a log fire and lots of sexcapades.. unfortunately after that it's an emotional rollercoaster and bad decisions, a seven year secret, assumptions, an ex's venomous drama causes turmoil and a twist are all interspersed in amongst beautiful days and sweet actions. Will Destiny finally pair the right Wright man with Emery.. or is their combined baggage just too much to handle?
Another good story from K. A. Linde who knows how to right angst-ridden steamy love stories that are beautiful disasters. Both the h/h are caring likeable characters, are part of a loving family and reap the rewards of fighting for each other. Jensen's swoon-worthy and charmed his way into Emery's pants.. and heart and she fought for, and with, her man for their happy ending. But, at times, I did think Jensen was a wee bit passive rather than a powerful alpha CEO.. nevertheless he was a down-to-earth hero and his simple date of tacos and Christmas lights was very sweet. I also thought that two people, who couldn't keep their hands off each other, missed the opportunity of joining The Mile High Club while flying in Jensen's Private Jet.. or maybe that's just my mind, the gutter and unfulfilled dreams!:) Excellent dual POV narration brought the characters to life.. along with the angst, the passion, the drama and the pleasure too.
Worth a credit? Yes I really enjoyed it. But, it all happens in just a few weeks.. so, while it's not quite insta-everything, it's a close second so be warned.. it didn't bother me at all but you may want more.

Where does The Wright Brother rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved this book and would rank it in one of my top 20 books. The story is well written and believable, it's something that could happen to most everyone. Both h/h are down to earth despite one being "made of money" and their love story is one that you see how they fight for each other and why their angst is normal.
Which scene was your favorite?
I loved the scene when Jensen and Emory are caught by Landon. That scene and the one that follows at the bar/pool hall is believable. You feel for Landon as who wants to see their ex with their brother but also for Jenson and Emory as their relationship is new and not being mentioned to everyone yet. KA Linde shows the emotions of all 3 and how they handle it in a very realistic way.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, there is so much to this story that I didn't want to put it down. I wish I picked a day that I could have listened to all day long as trying to find a good stopping point was hard. Every chapter brought me further into the story and I was more invested and didn't want to quit.
Any additional comments?
I can't wait for the next 2 books. While each book is a standalone you get to know the characters in the next 2 books and for those that want to see what happens to each character at one time might want to consider waiting for the next 2 books to release later in 2017.
