Synopsis from Goodreads
A new brother’s-best-friend stand-alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I was just his best friend’s little sister.
But he was always more than that to me.
After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.
Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.
There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.
So I’m willing to keep our secret…
Because I want him Wright here, right now.
We have had glimpses of the dynamic between Morgan and Patrick throughout the other books in the Wright series; it has been painfully obvious that Morgan has carried an insane torch for Patrick from the first time she met him. Unfortunately, Patrick’s friendship with her older brothers and the age gap between him and Morgan during their teenage years ensured that Patrick kept the platonic barrier between them.
That is until one evening Patrick is forced to confront his long-suppressed attraction to Morgan, from that point on there is no stopping the passion between them. For all of Patrick’s player reputation, he is surprisingly sweet and romantic, falling seamlessly into the role of Morgan’s boyfriend even though they intend to keep their fledgling relationship under wraps for the time being.
Morgan is understandably pessimistic in her approach to a relationship with Patrick due to his lack of relationships in the past. It is quickly obvious that Patrick just hadn’t found the right woman for him but when he does the right woman is a Wright who just happens to tilt his whole worldview.
Unfortunately, Morgan and Patrick don’t just have to contend with establishing a foundation for their relationship especially as Morgan has always been a workaholic and is the new CEO of the family construction business. A woman in a male-dominated world is a continual challenge for Morgan especially as she is required to prove herself in a way a male counterpart wouldn’t be. KA Linde subtly considers the sexism that still occurs in the workplace. As well as taking into account the necessity of having a work/life balance applying it to both men and women.
KA Linde also continues to touch upon the theme of the perils of alcohol within the narrative, something that I have personal experience of and feel isn’t dealt with as often as it should be, so I felt the need to point it out on this occasion 🙂
There is a lot of interference in the background testing the limits of Morgan and Patrick’s relationship with a wide range of inter-woven plot threads to keep you on your toes. Family dynamics, secrets and revelations all play a part in The Wright Secret.
Ultimately, it is the relationship between Patrick and Morgan that takes center stage in The Wright Secret and the way in which they are able to deal with any other problems they encounter by having the love of support of the other person by their side.
