Tripp Wilder is more than a friend…

..but Ember Stevens is determined not to make him a boyfriend. After a bad breakup, she prefers the sex without the strings and who better to teach her about NSA relationships than her love ’em and leave ’em neighbor, Tripp?

It’s the best of both worlds. She gets all the fun aspects of a relationship–the sex, the cuddling, the secrets in the dark–without all the obligations and resentment that go along with it.

Ember Stevens is everything he wants…

…but can’t have. Tripp lost his chance at a relationship with Ember years ago and has settled for being her BFF ever since. Now that she’s on the market again, he refuses to let his second chance with her pass him by.

Except she’s not interested in commitment.

Stuck between a rock and a hard-on, Tripp agrees to show Ember how to navigate the world of casual sex, but he’s determined to convince her that nothing can go wrong when a friendship comes with a guaranteed happy ending.

Review:

For readers, especially romance lovers like me, there are certain characters in a particular story that you know from the get-go that they’re meant to be. That’s what it was like for me while I was reading Friends with Benefits. Tripp and Ember were meant to be together. I knew that from the first pages of reading their story.

I love Ember’s grit and enduring sacrifice for her family. Her unconditional love for her little twin sisters is something that’s truly awe-inspiring. Despite her emotional baggage and unavailability, she has found solace with Tripp.

I have been intrigued by this pair ever since I caught a glimpse of them in the first two Friend Zone books. And I must say that the wait was totally worth it! I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.

I loved their easy and effortless friendship. When it shifted into something more, I just couldn’t help but root for their love. Like I said, it’s one of those stories when you just know that these two characters are meant to be.

The Wright Secret by K.A. Linde Blog Tour and Review

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.

Review:

The Wright Secret is a slow burn kind of love story that has been a long time coming since the start of the series. Seeing how Morgan and Patrick’s love story unfolds is such a treat for readers like me who had been fans of the Wright family since Book 1.

I must say that it’s high time that we get to finally see Morgan’s happily ever after. And guess what? It has been right in front of her all along!

I loved how the author depicted their romance in the story. Morgan was depicted as a strong and independent woman who’s at the top of her game. She is literally the boss of her own company and I loved seeing how she struggled to find the right balance of her time between love, friends, and family. And Patrick was quintessentially the boy next door. I mean what’s not to love right? He’s seen as a supportive lover, plus a good friend and confidante to the other Wright siblings.

Another great thing about their story is their shared history with each other. Having known each other for more than a decade, their lives are so intertwined between their friends and family. And seeing the dynamics change from friends to lovers is an absolute treat!

I can’t wait to read more about the Wright family. I hope Sutton gets another chance at happily ever after too!
