Wright with Benefits by K.A. Linde Release Blitz

Wright with Benefits by K.A. Linde Available Now

A feisty, stand-alone, friends-with-benefits romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde. With new characters set in the bestselling world of the Wrights, this is a perfect jumping on point for new readers!

I shouldn’t have hooked up with my one-night stand... again.

To be fair, I was having the worst day of my life. I was sure that nothing else could go wrong.

Then in walks Jordan Wright.

We have a heated history, and I’ve been avoiding him. Not least of all because he’s a hundred percent my type with those big brown eyes, a ripped body, and his blisteringly broody charm. I said I’d never go near him again.

But he’s there for me when I need him. And well, old habits die hard.

Only problem?

I’m leaving in a matter of months, and nothing is going to change my mind.

Maybe in the meantime, I can still have my Wright... with benefits.

A line had been drawn in the sand. No matter that we’d had a one-night stand with the best sex of my life, I wouldn’t open myself back up to be shattered by Jordan Wright again.

This is set within a world familiar to any Linde's Wright series – but even if you are new to it, you will definitely still enjoy this engaging story.

Jordan is back in Lubbock and setting down working roots as well as returning to the family business after his stay in Vancouver. We soon learn that he still has regrets over how he treated Annie when he left, but his experience with love is distorted by his unhappy childhood, with a bad example for a father. Little did he expect to have to come to Annie's rescue when he visits a wine merchants, but he is happy that he has re-engaged with her by being helpful.

Annie has certainly not forgotten Jordan, literally the one who got away, and then when he came back a few weeks later for a wedding, brought a girlfriend... she hasn't had time since to get involved with anyone, as she is studying hard to be an ER doctor. So not even Jordan can distract her from her goal, but he has a suggestion – friends with benefits, but no chance to be anything more...

Famous last words, of course, as we can tell that they both would like more, even if they rebuff each other in the interests of protecting themselves. Inevitably events overtake them, we get to learn their fears, their dreams, and their hopes, and in the end, just how far they will go to support each other.

There are some great side stories, like the winery sabotage, the ex-one-true-love turning up at the very worst moment, and the revelations which make all the difference in the world. Delicious writing, and catching up with plenty of old friends for Linde fans too!

Wright with Benefits is set within the Wright series universe. As someone who has yet to read that series, I didn't struggle as much as I assumed I would, not that there weren't bumps of confusion along the way, but I was able to read this as a standalone. It definitely sparked my interest to go back and read all the novels connected, which I wished I had done prior to reading Wright with Benefits. I believe the emotional payoff and entertainment value would have risen to a five-star read for me had I experienced the Wright family across the series.

As always, K.A. Linde is the queen of angst. Push-pull, will they/won't they romance. ANGST. Narrated by Annie and Jordan, a one-night stand turns into a second-chance romance, both of them believing the other wants different things out of life.

Annie is focused on her career and leaving Lubbock in her rearview, having zero time or energy for romance. After a one-night stand, Annie didn't believe she'd ever see Jordan again. For her, he's most certainly the one who got away, but when he shows back up in town with a girlfriend in tow, sparks fly.

Neither have time for romance, but that doesn't mean they can ignore the heat kindled between them. Friends with benefits seems like the perfect balance, until these pesky things called feelings get in the way.

The evolution of Annie and Jordan's relationship felt real, bringing all the feels. They grew together, personalities a good balance, with plenty of angst and conflict brought about by frustrating side plots.

I definitely look forward to going back to the beginning and reading the series as a whole, then rereading Wright with Benefits with fresh eyes.



One kiss. That was all it took. And I was his all over again.
