Book 6 in the Heroes of Henderson series from USA Today bestselling author Liz Kelly.
After Dallas, Laidey Bartholomew finds Henderson to be a breath of fresh air. Out from under the expectations of her socialite family, she can be as invisible as she chooses. She's perfectly happy flying under the radar, until a hot-tempered, masculine work of art roars into town on his Road King and zeroes in on her.
All of a sudden, Laidey's not invisible anymore.
Xavier Wright hasn't lived in Henderson for fourteen years. You'd think by now everyone would have forgotten about his juvenile antics. Knowing his sick ma doesn't need any additional stress in her life, he's determined to make amends for his bad-boy ways. Unfortunately, a certain little newcomer continually brings out the worst in him.
She's way too prissy for him. He's way too domineering for her.
Harry believes it's a match made in heaven.
All the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances. They do not need to be read in order, but it might be more fun that way as characters continue to show up in Henderson in big ways and small.

About the Author
Duncan James, the hero of Liz's novella in Countdown To A Kiss (which has also been published separately as Playin' Cop) is not only best friends with Lewis, but with both Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans, his fraternity brothers from NC State. Brooks and Vance are the Henderson cops who kick off the series with Good Cop and Bad Cop.
Recurring characters is the theme of the Henderson series. Each book is a complete romance in and of itself, but you won't lose touch with the couples you fall in love with. They keep playing big parts and small in following books as Brooks and Vance lead Team Henderson in finding ways to revive their small town.
"DuVal Cousin" books are an additional part of the Heroes of Henderson series, and usually are tucked in between books with numbers like 2.5 and 3.5. They can be full length novels or short novellas, and they are based on Lolly DuVal's (from Good Cop) Henderson cousins. Where the Heroes books are hero-centric, the DuVal Cousin books are heroine based.
Henderson is an actual town in North Carolina where some of Liz's favorite people were raised. Liz's version of Henderson is completely fictional since she hasn't had the pleasure of going back in nearly thirty years. But oh the fun she had while visiting there in her youth. Her memories are the perfect landscape for her contemporary romances.
Liz enjoys putting friends and readers in cameo appearances in her books. Originally from Baltimore, she spent every summer near Annapolis, Maryland in a community where dancing and romancing are literally part of its theme song. (The place where Jesse James gets banished from in Bad Cop. There is going to be a series about that place someday.)
A graduate of Wake Forest University, where she met her handsome golf-addicted husband, (who is now sporting dark glasses everywhere he goes) Liz is a mother of two grown sons (also sporting dark glasses) and a miniature Labradoodle named Isabelle. They live in the Fountain of Youth, a.k.a. Naples, FL where dancing and romancing continues on ad infinitum.

Oh tweety you've caught a live wire! I loved Xavier and Laidey. They were yin and yang and grew together into an awesome team. Great as always to catch up with the Henderson gang!
I received an ARC copy for an honest review. Wow this series just keeps getting better. This is Laidey and Xavier ' s story. I highly recommend that you read the books in order. It will make a lot more since. Laidey is a Dallas transplant working for CC Henderson. Xavier is the former town bully when he was in high school, who comes home after 14 years. I love the nicknames they give each other. And all of our favorite couples make an appearance or 2. Another big win for Liz Kelly!!!
Mr. Wright is my favorite book in the Heroes of Henderson series so far - and that's saying a lot. I love all my Heroes (Thor!!), but there was something about Xavier and Laidey's romance that had this one jumping to the top of my fave list. He's just want you want from your Hero - a bit of a bad boy, but one who loves deeply- both friends, family, and ultimately Laidey. She is quirky but also strong, and a formidable match to take on Xavier. I love this series so much and am so happy that the books just keep getting better and better!
From: melaniep I recieved this book for an honest review. Love, love, love this latest edition of the Hero's of Henderson!!! It was the "Bully" vs. the "Mouse". After many years loud, brash Xavier comes back to his hometown of Henderson to try to atone for sins of his high school years. He found Adelaide (the mouse), tiny, quiet,shy. They were so different, but somehow worked. Xavier was a great Hero!! Great story! It was so fun to also catch up with all the happenings in Henderson and the previous characters. Liz Kelly is a hilarious author. I was laughing out loud many times. You can read this as a stand alone book. But definately read the rest of the books. It is one of my favorite series!! You'll be wanting to move to Henderson!!!
The Heroes of Henderson series is my favorite HEA series out there. All the books are stand alone books, but reading all of them and getting to know more about all the other characters only makes each book more enjoyable. Mr. Wright is a fun, easy read that will put a smile on your face. Laidey and Xavier compliment each other well and keep you entertained with their banter. I want to live in Henderson!
I voluntary read this book for and honest review. Could the men in this town get any hotter. Xavier Wright left his home town 14 years ago to try an escape things he did. He is now back in town to take care of his mother and try and fix some of things that he left unfinished when he left. Laidey Bartholomew is from Dallas and is currently working in Henderson trying to escape her life in Dallas and become her own person. She likes life just the way it is now being invisible. That all changes when Xavier strolls into town on his Road King. Life as she knows it starts to change. What happens when Xavier runs into his ex and Laidey is there to witness part of the drama that unfolds. Can Laidey (aka Tweets) being around him without fear? Can Xavier get her to like him and not be so afraid of him? A definite must read book 6 was worth the wait. I loved this book I can't wait to next book. Every book is about how Henderson is changing but every book with it new characters coming into play just makes each book unique in it's own way.
