This is the ninth book in the series. I have read many of them, and whilst each is rich in its own right, they are even better with some context and understanding of the family dynamics and business links!

Julian Wright is a serious man. He works all the time, and is insistent on not repeating the sins of his father. He cannot help but deny himself any serious relationship, in the fear that he will behave badly and leave his family too. His last girlfriend, who betrayed him in the worst way, is still trying to worm her way into his life.

Jennifer works for the Wright Vineyard as their in-house photographer. Although she had the glamour of international assignments, she has decided that she needs time with her friends and the certainty of work close to home. The only downside is being near her very negative mum, who still believes that she should have been a pharmacist, not play at taking pictures. Being with her friends makes it worthwhile, although it also puts her in a position to see a lot of Julian, the subject of a long-time crush. They did have a moment, four years ago, but nothing since. Living with anxiety – mostly under control thanks to medication and therapy – Jennifer is nervous of even thinking about the man, that is just how much he affects her.

One evening, and they find themselves in a fake relationship. Initially set up to provide cover for upcoming events, now they both wish it were for real and don't know how to escape from the deal. As they allow each other little steps into their private lives, it is quite difficult as a reader to not want to give them advice about how far to go and when to keep quiet. Jen's friends do a good job of being supportive, but both of them are very private people, and also very respectful of each other.

We get to catch up with previous couples, and even attend a wedding. There are more Wright family revelations, which will be interesting in future installments... as always an engaging and enjoyable read.

Serves Me Wright is the ninth installment in the Wright series. I would suggest against reading as a standalone, as the connection between the hero and heroine started in previous installments. I have not read all the novels in the series, but I did read the previous installment, so I understand the dynamics, which may help reduce any confusion a new reader would experience. That being said, one of these days, I must sit down and start at the beginning, curious to see if the emotional payoff is better once I read the novels back-to-back.

Julian has issues, the type of issues that will either resonate with the reader or not. I was able to connect with Julian, understanding the layers because they hit close to home in some ways, personality wise. Well-meaning with his heart in the right place, yet emotionally closed off, putting people at a distance, Julian is a reserved soul. To add insult to injury, he has trust issues due to his ex, an ex who just will not scram. Worse yet, he has his own version of daddy issues, fearing he'll behave as the man has in the past. Because of these issues, Julian refuses to connect with anyone on an emotional level, driven by fear and trust issues. This combination makes for a dynamic hero.

Jennifer is a classic wallflower, sweet and innocent, shy and a little bit unsure of herself. Beneath the insecurities is a spine of steel that will reveal itself once challenged. Intelligent, a beauty who doesn't realize she's beautiful until Julian comes along. Anyone who suffers from even the mildest form of anxiety will immediately understand Jennifer's struggles.

Two of my favorite premises, fake-date and opposites attract. Julian and Jennifer are a perfect balance, challenging the other to break out of their respective shells, so to speak. The romance was front and center, but a bit too predictable for me to call it a page-turner. Just the right amount of angst to make the heart clench, loads of pining from past installments, but a classic romance where you didn't have to worry about the happily ever after.

Where Linde shines with this series is with the family dynamics, which is what has me wishing I'd started from page one of book one to truly immerse myself in the Wright family she's created. While I love me the tension and angst of a fake-date premise, am warmed by the opposites attract balance, I'm a total sucker for large family drama.
