3.5 stars for - The Wright One - book two in the Wright Love Duet by K.A. Linde. The Wright Love has to be read first in order to really have a good understanding of David and Sutton’s history and/or relationship dynamics. This is also what appears to be the end of the Wright series on a whole as all of the siblings have had their stories but with their Canadian cousins moving to Lubbock, Texas diehard fans like me can always hope for a spin-off series featuring the wealthy enigmatic family we have all come to adore. Sutton Wright finally decided she was allowed to be happy and wasn't going to let anyone get in her head when she once again felt her foundation crumble. This time lies and deceit were the cause of her heartache but she still felt the pain of betrayal and loss all the same causing her once again to question everything. Having lost it all once before she doesn't feel strong enough to ever go through that all over again. David knows he made a huge mistake not being honest with Sutton but he is determined to prove himself before it's too late. He has never wanted anyone as much as he does her and he will do whatever it takes to have her but she has to stop pushing him away first. I loved book one so much and had high hopes for this one but I didn't love all the back and forth between David and Sutton. All the "she loves me, she loves me not" was waaay too much for me as it tended to drag on throughout the entire book and then just when I thought they got it together it was David who decided to do a runner. While this was not my favorite of the series on a whole it was fantastic and one I highly recommend.

Sutton is devastated after discovering who David really is. But why did he hide who he was from everyone? Is there a way back for them? The Wright One picks up right where The Wright Love ended. There’s a lot of drama of drama, angst and conflict in the second part of Sutton and David's love story, but also lots of love, hope, forgiveness, sweet moments and steamy scenes. I loved learning about David's past and finding out why he hid the truth about his past and family. Sutton is still conflicted about her feelings for her dead husband and her feelings for David. But she grows a lot in this book and I loved seeing her mama bear side. David is the perfect guy. He's patient, kind, sweet and forgiving. He loves Sutton but knows she has to deal with her grief and her feeling before they can be together. K.A. Linde did an amazing job with Sutton and David's story. The Wright Love Duet is all about love, giving love a second chance, grieving, and forgiveness. I loved Linde's writing style and she makes it very easy to connect with these perfectly flawed characters and this captivating story. I can't wait to read more about the Wright family and their friends, especially Penn.

Sutton and David's story is filled with angst, heart-ache and struggle. After David's jaw-dropping secret was revealed, Sutton is right back to the hot mess she was before. However, that got sorted fairly quickly and I was left feeling like the rest of the book was going to be an easy ride. WRONG. What the heck was I thinking? K.A. Linde doesn't roll like that. Sutton continues to struggle emotionally, the guilt of being happy weighing heavy on her heart. But she also rises to the occasion and decides that even though tragedy has tried to ruin her, she can be the master of her own destiny and take charge of her own happiness. There is plenty of drama to sink your teeth into, plenty of heat to keep you warm and most of all plenty of love to leave you feeling satisfied.

Faithfull to her style the author delivers an angsty and sexy story. With an utterly emotive and intense writing, K.A. Linde shows us the healing power of love. The emotional parts got me weeping, but in some moments I found myself smiling with hope. The characters are in a constant battle with their feelings, and the plot is a fascinating mix of frustration, attraction, friendship, familial drama and unconditional love, among other things. There are a lot of things happening in this book. Sutton has to face, for real this time, her feelings and what she wants for her future; David has to find out if his place is with Sutton or apart from her. And while they are getting things straight, we get to enjoy a little more about the secondary characters while dreaming about them getting their own stories (I’m talking about Penn, in case you were wondering). I loved this book. I loved Sutton and David’s story and how things ended for them. And I also loved to get to see (or read) about… Jensen’s wedding , lol. I think this is it for the Wright family, at least for a while, and while it’s a little bittersweet to say goodbye to the characters we've come to love over these last six novels, I’m excited about the author’s new projects. Can’t wait to read her again!

RATING: 4.5/5 The Wright One is the concluding book in Sutton and David’s story. The story is about second chances at love and new beginnings. In The Wright Love we left off with a shocking cliffhanger, that picks ups in the second book as we get to find out what happens next after Sutton finds out about David’s past. It’s evident at the very beginning that Sutton is still struggling after the death of her husband and after opening up to David, she never expected to get hurt again. Now the story focuses on Sutton making the right decision of whether she wants to give David another chance or not. Meanwhile, ever since David revealed his past to the Wrights everything has changed for him. He wants to win Sutton back and to do that he has to put his heart on the line. Without revealing too much, we get to see the characters grow in the book and they start to understand each other better. Sutton finally gets to see David’s world, but she still feels that she can’t fully move on and that’s when we get a whole rollercoaster of emotions. It was a bit frustrating seeing her going back and forth, and not being able to decide what she wanted. On the other hand, I really loved David and was totally rooting for him until the very end. He is such a great character and totally lovable. He had a rough past just like Sutton, but he is willing to do anything to win her back. He has a great relationship with the rest of the Wrights and it was nice seeing all of them again. There were a few issues that felt unresolved to me that could have made the book that much better. All in all, the ending was sweet and it fit their story so well. I would highly recommend reading this story and the rest of the Wright series. You will not regret it! :) ***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.***

In The Wright One we get the 2nd half of Sutton's story, which sadly is also the last of The Wright Series. Kyla has made this such an enjoyable series over the past year and I'm sad it's over. But it has been a very fun and emotional journey meeting all the Wrights. She was able to tie everything up for Sutton in this last book and I found it packed with so much heart and emotion, I had a hard time putting it down. In The Wright One, we pick up literally right where we left off from The Wright Love. We have just found out David’s true identity. While some of the family is stunned & attempting to push David away, he is desperately trying to explain himself to the one Wright who matters most. Sutton. There are struggles in this book, demons to conquer, obstacles to overcome, but David is not giving up on her. While Sutton is confused as ever, and hurt, she is not sure they have anything worth repairing. The path ahead of them isn’t going to be an easy one. Struggles lie ahead and obstacles come at them from all directions they couldn’t have even imagined. But as they hold onto one another you can truly see their bond and strength they have in one another. As Kyla throws in the curve-balls and angst we all love from her, we a character never more deserving of her happy ending. Kyla has done such a fabulous job portraying these characters and developing this whole family’s stories throughout the series, that I have to give her a standing ovation for finishing off The Wrights in such a manor with Sutton. With their devastating and tragic pasts trying to dictate the future, the bond between them is a site to behold.

Well what can I say. Tears are running down my face. I don’t want to give any of the books away but just when you think Sutton and David have reached a good place something kicks them in the back of the legs and knocks them down again.

(3.75-4 stars) I’ve been wondering how this duet was going to end since finishing the first book. I was worried at the start of TWO that (this should NOT be a surprise) Sutton and David got back together too soon and that there would be no more story to tell. BOY! Was I wrong. Their ups and downs made Sutton’s grief not only believable but relatable. I loved the epilogue and it wrapped up Sutton’s duet and the Wright series beautifully and the tears left on my face were happy ones.

What a roller coaster ride this story brought us. Even though book one ended with a cliff hanger, The Wright One picks right up where we left off. When Sutton goes back to the cemetery, a piece of my heart was destroyed. She missed her husband but desperately needs to move on. David was suppose to be the one. But as we know in last book, he messed up severely. I was not sure he would be able to get back into Sutton's good graces. This story is about trying to find life after we feel like our world has been destroyed. How to love when our heart has been shattered and do not have enough to put it back together. It is about second chances and coming out to the sunshine. Sutton is a strong woman. She lives in mourning, but is ready to find herself. The Wright One is not about the traditional romance story. If you have been following the Wright's books, you know that this family virtually becomes yours. So I am a little on the protective side when it comes to them. In the end, I knew Sutton would over comer her struggles. The Wright Love duet is KA Linde's best story yet. I never wanted this book to end.

Gosh! I've waited so long for Sutton and David's story. Then I had to wait again for the second installment. Let me tell you, it was every bit worth the wait. Sutton still battles with guilt. Guilt over even thinking about moving on. Guilt over having feelings for someone else. Guilt over Mav not being here. David has given her space. He's given her time. He's gone as slow as she needed. Although he's a patient man, he's not sure how much more of Sutton's indecisiveness he can handle. And when she breaks things off with him, well, he knows he's done then. He can't hang on to an idea. I've loved this entire series. It's been hard to settle on just whose story has been my favorite. I think I was waiting on Sutton's story all along. She's not like the others. She's independent. She doesn't let the family business decide her career. David is every bit as perfect for her and he can get. I couldn't imagine these two not together. The story that the author weaved was one that was just magical. It's intriguing and complicated, angsty and breathtaking. I loved every word. This series is one of my favorites. This duet was the perfect way to end it!

The author has certainly given us a rather riveting, nail biting end to Sutton and Davids story! Does it end in a happily ever after?? You need to read it for yourself! This book starts where The Wright Love ended and nothing is as it seems or so we think! I love that Sutton has such a great support network in her family and that they will tell her like it is or should be! I thought David was so charming, he really is swoonworthy! Willing to do his utmost to get the girl! But Suttons grief and other factors come into play and it does get rather heated! I really loved this story, its a real credit to the author and the way she has written it! I really felt for the characters, I understood their trials and tribulations in their lives! I really wanted a beautiful outcome to happen! I had no clue which way things would go for them, to be honest but I absolutely loved it! These characters will forever be in my heart, thats for sure! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of the Wright family??!! I know I certainly do! Looking forward to reading more books from this author!

Absorbing, passionate, and angsty! The Wright One is a heartwarming tale that picks up right where The Wright Love left off, taking us back to Lubbock, Texas where secrets have been unearthed, relationships strained, and forgiveness, grief, and family are still huge hurdles for David and Sutton to face. The writing is smooth and emotive. The characters are patient, hesitant, committed, and determined. And the plot is an alluring mix of understanding, frustration, compassion, attraction, parenthood, friendship, familial drama, and unconditional love. The Wright Love is the final novel in the Wright series (hopefully just for now), and I have to admit it's a little bittersweet to say goodbye to the characters we've come to love over these last six novels by Linde. Nevertheless, this is still a delightful, beautiful chance to have one last catch up with the whole gregarious Wright gang and to finally see Sutton and David get the happy-ever-after ending we've been hoping for them from the very start.

I am SO glad that these two books released close together. The ending of the last book had me dying for this one! And I was so not disappointed! I loved David and Sutton. Sutton was broken and David wanted to be the man to help her move on. It was a beautiful story. It was heartbreaking in the best way. It was the good ugly cry you do when you watch the Notebook. Where you bawl so hard it hurts but feels so good afterwards. That was what this book was. It was a story about rebirth and hope and broken dreams becoming different dreams. I loved it. K.A. Linde knows how to make you ugly cry and like it! I was given this book by the author.

KA Linde left us in The Wright Love with one hell of a cliffy, so I couldn't have been happier to see this land on my kindle. You MUST read The Wright Love before reading The Wright One. So if you haven't read it - don't keep reading, my review may have book one spoilers. Sutton had finally let her walls down and let David in to only have her world blown apart by his secrets.  And the secrets are so deep that Sutton is unsure that she will ever rebound from the hurt. David's secrets are HUGE, but as the story unfolds you see the reason behind his deception.  As I felt in The Wright Love, David is an incredible man, he has a past that has damaged him but he's doing his best to rebound.  He's a sweet loving man who wants the best for Sutton. Being only a year since she lost Maverick, Sutton continues to have concerns with "moving on".  In great KA Linde fashion, there is angst, drama, intrigue and some hot and sexy. Since the first Wright book, I have wanted to be a part of this family, these children who have come from a home without a mother, a destructive father and have come from the ashes with only each other.  Their stories are inspiring and give you hope that even coming from sadness, everyone deserves a happy ending.  KA Linde's books take you on an emotional rollercoaster with each story she weaves and this entire series has given me all that I love about reading.  I will miss the Wright Family.

I've been anxiously waiting for this book since finishing The Wright Love a couple weeks ago! And it did not disappoint. We pick up pretty much where we left off after everyone finds out a pretty hefty secret. Sutton is not handling it well, which is to be expected. Again, this is a total up and down roller coaster of emotions! Sad, happy, angry, sad, happy, angry, sad, and then finally soooooo happy! So many emotions. We get a lot more backstory on David in this book. I wasn’t sure if there was any coming back from what happened in The Wright Love, but man, he came back with a vengeance! I love him. And I love him and Sutton together. There were a lot of surprises in this book. Like who ended up being the voice of reason. Didn't see that one coming. At. All. This story was tied up with a perfect pretty little bow. And I may have shed a tear or two over the fact that this series is over. I feel like a member of this family now and I don’t want to say goodbye yet. A perfect ending to a fantastic series. I’d highly recommend reading all the books.

With their future hanging in the balance David and Sutton are struggling to muddle through the secrets surrounding them and Sutton's devotion to her deceased husband. Every time she thinks she is ready to close the book on her and Maverick, something or someone comes along and opens the book back up again, and she is once again left struggling with letting him go. He meant the world to her, gave her something truly remarkable (their son), and before they could really get their future underway he left this earth and left her alone. Then David came into her life at the perfect time, gave her a shoulder to lean on, and before long feelings started to develop, but he also came baring secrets, secrets that Sutton isn't so sure she can embrace or fully understand. David feels like he is standing on the outside of Sutton's world, watching her hold a candle for a future that is no longer available to her, and it kills him to think that he could lose her to a husband that is no longer around to fight for her heart. But he is there, fighting hard to keep Sutton in his life, and hopefully someday able to make her his wife, but he also knows his secrets might be more than her fragile heart can bare, so he runs the risk of losing it all. He is determined to hold on to her, so he will be patient as she sorts through things, and will hold out hope that she will be his in the end... but only time will tell. In this conclusion to David and Sutton's story readers will learn more about David's secrets that have come to light, and have a front row seat to all the drama that follows them, it's a will they, won't they struggle the whole way through, so be prepared to have your heart in your throat and your tears welling. While it is a beautiful and healing journey to witness it is also a heartbreaking one at times, and it is certain to inspire a wide variety of the feels, with plenty of highs and lows... you know the ones that keep you teetering on the edge of your seat. I have to say this is one of the most heartfelt stories that I have read in a while, it put a pretty good squeeze on my heart, but it also had an inspiring air to it too, it was a seamlessly blended tale that I am sure will stick with me for a while. Highly recommend this one it's downright amazing!! I requested an advanced copy of this title and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Whew! My stomach was in knots for this whole book but it was so worth it! I’ve been rooting for Sutton this whole time even when my heart was breaking for her. Will she embrace her second chance? Walk away? Will her grief blind her for the rest of her life? Ugh. Such a roller coaster. So so good!!

This book is the conclusion to Sutton - David story.. The previous book ended with a cliff that had me wanting this book so much and it starts right where we left.. As much as i loved David, i totally understood Sutton's reaction on hearing the bomb that got dropped about David.. And I was so curious to know the whole past of David and why he hid the whole thing... So when the past comes out in open, I got why he was not forthcoming with it... And with so much complications in his past, and Sutton second guessing their relation at times, I was wondering how would they get their HEA.. Actually I liked David's character a whole lot more in this book.. Sutton was more confused and her flipping out coz of it was actually frustrating at times even though it was totally understandable.. They both deserved each other and the happiness.. Despite all the troubles, they fought for that!! I loved their story!!

Secrets…..some are meant to be hidden. Others have the power to break you from within when they are exposed. For Sutton and David – the consequences of his secret leave them both teetering in despair. Sutton feels the betrayal of David’s secret from deep within. The feelings from a misplaced trust leaving Sutton doubting if love was in the cards again. Tainting the view Sutton has on love and trust. David knew that one day he would have to face the music about his past. Reliving some of the worst moments in his life. The’ cat is finally out of the bag’, and now David has lost any opportunity of a future with the woman he loves with all of his heart. With the ‘sins of the Father’ weighing on David’s shoulders, is an escape from the past ever going to be in the cards? The Wright One is the second book in the Wright Love Duet by author K.A. Linde. David and Sutton take us back to that explosive moment that kept fans on their seat from the first book. The ‘secret’ is out, and David is handing the ‘hits’ from every angle. Sutton is heartbroken and feels as though she has been lied to by the secret that David kept hidden. The two embroil in a push and pull in their battle of wills. One determined to salvage the tendrils of new love, and the other determined that there is nothing left to hang on to. While I am thoroughly a ‘Team David’ kind of reader, I found myself wondering why Sutton seemed to lack believability at times. Don’t get me wrong, her relationship with David was SWEET. However – the turmoil from her past, and the way her character was perceived throughout the Wright Series left me a bit torn with her responses in this Duet. It was a bit ‘flat’ and predictable. Not the spontaneity that readers have come to love from a character that deviated from the expectations set upon the Wright siblings. Jason’s character was a bit ‘strange’ for lack of a better description. There were times he sounded like a typical two year old, other times a toddler, then other times he had the vocabulary of a five year old. Definitely something that should have been fleshed out during the Beta Reading stage…but I couldn’t get the contrasts out of my head while reading the story. All in all – The Wright One is a SWEET love story. One that could have easily fit into one novel and had more impact without so many ‘fillers’ used to extend the writing to create a duet.

Sutton Wright's story was everything I hoped it would be. I knew that her story was going to break my heart. This young girl that had everything, a husband and a son and a great family and then her life fell apart. At the end of the first book of this duet, I didn't know how Sutton and David would work their way back together. They have so much to work through, the biggest being, is Sutton ready for a relationship. The feelings and struggles that Sutton goes through are so real and so well described. I felt like I lived through her torment. I also could feel David's love for her and how he wanted nothing more than to make her his. This story was full of heart and soul and I absolutely loved it. This is part 2 of a duet, you need to read The Wright Love first.

The Wright one Book 2. Where to start. Picks up as book 1 ends. Same characters. David and Sutton. At the end of the first book some news was discovered about David that broke all trust. It was a huge twist!! This book was awesome. To see Sutton come to grips with her current reality and be able to live again was AWESOME!!! Side note: I love Morgan’s involvement in this one. And her understanding! This duet broke me in half and put me back together. I highly recommend this book! (You can’t go wrong with Ka Linde books!!!) Read it. You won’t regret it.

When her world was falling apart he was there to soften the blow. Now that he needs her, will she be strong enough to shield him from the storm? Sutton has fought her way back from despair. As a woman and mother, she's coming into her own. Just when life seems to be looking up the storm clouds set in. Will her second chance be over before it has a chance to begin? Sutton is my favorite Wright. Sick of being life's punching bag, she's out to even the score. In love and life things get messy, but having the courage to trust your instincts and risk your heart. That's priceless.
