A new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
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.

Landon Wright is a professional golfer and, in a very revel way that I admire, refuses to be part of his family’s business.
I’d wanted to make my name as someone other than a Wright.
Throughout the story there’s several puns of the main character’s last name that I constantly found hilarious. Landon’s life, on the other hand, was far from perfect. Due to an injury, he’s unable to play golf for a while and eventually has to work in the company he rather not be, his family’s. In his personal life he was unhappily married to a complete monster, one that was constantly manipulating him into staying together, until he finally realizes their marriage isn’t worth his time and effort.
While he is still married Landon finds comfort on an old acquaintance, Heidi Martin. She is a very strong and independent woman that happenes to fall in love with a very complicated man.
Landon Wright was not right for me.
As they both know they should, they stay as far as possible from each other. Or rather until Landon seeks her out when he leaves his wife, but Heidi doesn’t believe him for a second. It takes real effort from Landon to convince her that he divorcing for once and for all.
Since the beginning their attraction is palpable. K.A. Linde makes it easy for the reader to feel their conflicted emotions. Suddenly Landon is appointed as the person in charge of Heidi’s department and he becomes The Wright Boss. She has a very strict policy of not dating the boss, but when Landon becomes her boss we can’t blame her for bending the rules.
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.
Unfortunately that policy doesn’t only apply to Heidi’s life, but to the Wright company. Landon and she make the sensible thing and try to keep their relationship platonic… try being the key word of the statement.
My brain was saying, Walk away. Don’t give in. Keep your defenses up.
My body was saying, Touch me, feel me, devour me.
There’s several scenes that I love about the story. I personally admire how sure Landon was of his feelings toward Heidi, specially since he just came out of a very nasty relationship.
“Heidi,” I murmured.
“Look at me.” Her eyes opened hesitantly, as if she couldn’t face her own reality. As if she would give in the minute she saw the depth of affection in my eyes.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“Falling for you.”
Heidi on her part struggles with the relationship. Landon is her best friend’s (and roommate’s) high school boyfriend, which was forever ago. I respect that Heidi is concerned for her friend’s feelings, more so because apparently their relationship didn’t end in the best therms. But what readers learn in The Wright Brother is that her friend actually falls in love and starts dating Landon’s brother.
We were long over, and she was head over heels for my brother…
and I was head over heels for her best friend.
The Wright’s family dynamics is very interesting. I kept wondering what happened in the previous book since Landon’s brother and ex-girlfriend are an important part of the plot. I have to clarify that I didn’t need the information from the precious book to understand or enjoy this one, but since I’m super curious (and by that I mean nosy) I’d like to read the previous book to have all the information about this interesting family.
Because, when you found a love that was inescapable,
you held on and never let go.
Overall The Wright Boss is a story that’s sexy, funny and easy to read. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. There were some part of the book that had me really mortified, I kept expecting someone to find them out in their amorous escapades and I did and didn’t want to turn the page to learn if they were going to get caught.
I know I’ll be reading the rest of the series soon and encourage anyone to read it too.
