A new sexy contemporary romance duet from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
Secrets swarm all around.
My world is crumbling under the strain.
I don’t know if we can survive this.
My heart is in the Wright place.
But is his?
The Wright One is the last book in the Wright Love Duet that began in The Wright Love. Find out if Sutton and David survive their world of secrets in the conclusion to the Wright Love duet!
The Wright One is the conclusion to Sutton and David’s story and wraps up the entire Wright family series. This series has always been one of my favorites, and established K.A. Linde as one of my favorite romance authors. I really enjoyed The Wright Love, the first book in Sutton and David’s duet, though I struggled a bit more with this one. While it was still good, I just felt like there was a lot of filler, and the same argument was repeated over and over again without adding anything to the story.
The Wright Love left us with a cliffhanger when it came to the status of David and Sutton’s relationship. Lines had been crossed, and trust had been broken and I wasn’t sure how they would survive the tumultuous turn of events. The ending set the second book up for plenty of drama, however, I didn’t feel like the setup was used to its full potential in the second book, and the revelations discovered were slightly less lackluster than I was hoping for.
Sutton is still struggling with her grief, and letting others influence her ways of thinking and moving on with her life, which is the leading cause of problems between her and David. Her worries about what others will think, and if it is too soon, and if she’s making the right decisions for her son create a maelstrom of problems for the couple. David really tries to be the man that Sutton needs, but eventually her insecurities, coupled with his doubts push him farther and farther away.
I still loved Sutton in this book, and she will always been one of my favorite characters, behind Austin and Julia (Still my favorite book in the series!). She’s been through so much at such a young age, and while it has changed her, and she struggles to make the decisions that will better her life, she’s still super strong character. She’s a young widow, raising her son by herself, and she’s a good mom. Through her grief she’s always been there for Jason, and that’s really something you have to admire in her.
As for David, I really struggled to make a solid connection with him. I couldn’t quite picture him in my head, and when I did, he looked like Jack from the 50 Shades of Grey movies which was just a little bit disconcerting. He’s a super sweet guy, and always nice and completely caring, but perhaps he was a bit too nice? He seemed to be lacking a bit of a backbone, and I’ve learned that I do enjoy at least a little bit of alpha in my men. But that’s just a personal preference for me, and others may completely enjoy his personality.
While not my favorite of the series, The Wright One is still a good conclusion to the series, and I fell in love with the epilogue, and enjoyed seeing Sutton find happiness again.
I feel like Emily did a fantastic job of describing my thoughts on this book so I will keep this review short. There were two great books in this series, The Wright Brother and The Wright Mistake, and the others were a bit mediocre for me. I still really loved catching up with the whole fam, but I was always missing something from their books. Sutton and David…I was expecting more from them. I was expecting more drama and angst and JUST MORE! I felt there was so much filler and nothing was being added to the story. It might have to do with Sutton being split into two books to be quite honest. I wonder if I would have loved her book more if it was just one book like her siblings. I felt like I was just reading the same conversations and thoughts over and over and over again.
I admired Sutton’s strength in trying to move forward and continue being there for her son, Jason. Sutton has been through so much in her short life, but she knew she didn’t want to be alone the rest of her life. Sutton was a spitfire when she wanted to be and wasn’t about to let anyone hurt her again like she hurt when she lost her husband.
I liked David, but he was just too nice and I wanted him to get a little more alpha on me. Being sweet, patient, and kind are fantastic qualities to have in a man, but the man also needs a little more fight in him, especially when it comes to those he loves. The patience that David displayed for Sutton was definitely his best quality.
Like I said, there was nothing terrible about this book, but there was also nothing stellar. I have enjoyed getting to know the Wright family and their many stories. They are definitely a family that everyone wishes they were a part of.
Overall Rating: 3/5 Stars!
