A 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.

Morgan Wright is the woman I strive to be when I grow up! Powerful, ambitious, loving, witty, she has it all. Even the insecurities most of us women carry. Patrick Young is the man I want to want me! Strong, faithful, honest, forgiving, understanding, he has what every woman needs! Especially the patience to understand that sometimes you have to fight! KA Linde gave us another AMAZING story here with The Wright Secret. You have some twists and turns but ultimately, get the ending you are looking for. With the addition of new characters and many cameos from previous ones, you are left on the edge of what will happen and why. There is a menace to the Wright family that truly has to be dealt with in a way that will leave you satisfied with the outcome of what happens. I cannot wait for KA to bring us more from this cast. She’s really hit the nail on the head with this group! Bring on Sutton!!

With each book in this series I became a little more addicted. Wanted each book in the series just a little bit more. FINALLY Morgan and Patrick get their turn. Sweet & sexy with a couple little suprises and an almost satisfying end. Morgan is a fierce heroine and I love that when she wants something, she just goes for it. Patrick included. And you know that her brothers, or at least one in particular, are going to lose their minds, and that’s almost as entertaining as the chemistry between them. Still at the end of this story I’m left with one nagging question. What about Sutton? I really felt for her during this series and I think her story could be the best of out of all the siblings. I hope she gets a story too!

4.5 stars for - The Wright Secret - by K.A. Linde. This is the fourth book about the affluent and enigmatic Wright siblings from Lubbock Texas. This is a complete stand-alone and while I highly recommend reading the other books about the Wright siblings in no way is it necessary to do so prior to reading this one. Linde works her magic with this story and delivers a heroine that commands respect in the boardroom as well as the bedroom all while never backing down. Morgan Wright is the new CEO of Wright Construction. At only twenty-seven being the head of a Fortune 500 company is unheard of, but she was born for this role and knows the company as well if not better than her big brother Jensen whom she is taking over for. With her all her major goals and aspirations finally being achieved with her career she can only hope her decade long infatuation with a certain guy will finally come to fruition. Patrick Young is absolutely clueless when it comes to his best friend Austin’s little sister. He has known the Wright family for years and always told himself that Morgan was off limits instead of giving into the temptation. A comment he would have normally laughed off causes him to see her in a whole new light. Patrick knows that they are two consenting adults, but with her being Austin’s little sister he doesn’t want to betray his friend. Too bad now that the seed has been planted he can’t stop thinking of Morgan in “that” way...

Provocative, captivating, and wonderfully romantic! The Wright Secret is a sultry, beguiling read that mixes the intelligent, hardworking Morgan who finds herself in a sticky situation with not only the man of her dreams but as the new CEO of the family business, and the effortlessly handsome, easy-going Patrick who finally discovers his best friend's sister is more than he ever imagined. The writing is witty and light. The supporting characters include all the charming and endearing gang we've come to love from the previous stories. And the plot is a wonderful combination of light drama, smoking chemistry, sexy innuendoes, and delicious heat. As most people know, I'm a huge fan of Linde's stories. And like all of her previous novels I've read, The Wright Secret keeps you engaged, makes you swoon, leaves you wanting more and does an exceptional job of showcasing why Linde is one of the most popular, successful authors of this genre.

…Can you hear that? It’s the sound of Morgan Wright FINALLY getting her man! 12 years is a long time to crush on somebody but for Morgan and Patrick the wait was well worth it. I’m so glad Morgan’s story was told and that such an amazing female character took center stage. The story flowed and moved along well. As soon as I found myself wondering what the conflict was going to be, it was revealed and in true Wright fashion her entire family was behind her. Now that I’ve finished tWS I will be saving my strength and impatiently waiting for Sutton’s duet.

Having read the previous books in the Wright series, I couldn’t have been more excited when I found out that Morgan was getting her own story and it didn’t disappoint at all. In this particular story we get to meet Morgan Wright, one of the younger Wright siblings in the family. Having grown up with wealth and prestige, Morgan still wanted to succeed in her career and make a name for herself. When she is offered the position as CEO of her family’s company, she is ecstatic and ready to take the job that she worked so hard to get. But when people within the company start to doubt her potential she makes the decision to work start hard to show them that she is capable of getting the work done. That is until her brother’s best friend/employee, Patrick shows up to hand her his two week notice. With everything going around her she didn’t see that one coming especially when by quitting she knows that she is not going to see him at work again and that will ultimately crush her heart. After developing a secret crush on Patrick for years, Morgan has never told him and that made his resignation a lot harder to take. She knows that she is lucky to have an amazing career and family, but she wants what all her brothers have and that is love. It is after Patrick starts to show feelings towards her that she wants to be with him, yet there are people that have threatened her career and she’ll have to decide if pursuing a relationship with Patrick is worth it. For Patrick being surrounded by those he loves is the most important thing in his life and although he has worked for the Wrights for a while he can’t wait to take a different turn in his career. He wants to make a name for himself without always being associated with the Wright family. But that doesn’t always help since he has feelings towards Morgan and now that he is no longer working at the company he wants to finally make a move on her. What should have been easy, it started to become difficult the minute he thought of her brother and hiding a relationship with her could end up hurting them in the end. I loved all the previous books in the Wright series, they are charming and full of romance. Each sibling has their own battles to fight and Morgan is not different. She has the best personality out of all the siblings, she is strong and independent. I liked how she loves her career and wants to make things work. On the other hand, Patrick was definitely swoon worthy and protective. He protected Morgan when she needed him the most and it all worked out very well. Overall, the story truly takes us through a journey of growth and love. There wasn’t a big conflict or anything overly dramatic in the story, but we do get a sweet ending that’s for sure. I love the secondary characters and their roles in the story. I cannot wait to read Sutton’s story, it would be great to see what happens with the youngest Wright. Highly recommend reading this book! :) ***ARC provided for blog tour purposes in exchange for an honest review.***

First we met Jensen Wright, and I liked him. I liked the unexpected, forbidden romance he found. Then came Landon, whom I hadn't really cared much for when I met him in Jensen's book, but I found myself sort of falling for him. I most looked forward to Austin's story because he's so tragic and angsty, and if ever there were a guy who can't get out of his own way, it's Austin Wright. But what of the Wright sisters? Morgan has been handed the CEO-ship of Wright Construction, and she's been in love with Austin's BFF Patrick since forever. Will she find happiness with him, or will she have to go look elsewhere? I loved the little details K A Linde gives us about Morgan. She's petite and wears sky-high heels to make herself look taller. She can see a potential romance between two people she cares about, yet she is convinced she will die alone, the foster mother to a herd of cats. She's the most like her father (and Jensen) in temperament but looks just like her mother, with whom she yearns for a connection that, with her mother having died when Morgan was five, will never happen. In the first three books, Linde showed us that EVERYONE knows that Morgan loves Patrick. Everyone but Patrick, that is. Here, she lets him start to see Morgan as something other than Austin's little sister, and it is great fun to watch him do the proverbial double-take. I liked that the problems between the two of them didn't feel manipulated or far-fetched. I also liked how Patrick views their relationship. After spending so many years oblivious to Morgan's feelings, his framing of the two of them together is pretty awesome. The only thing I didn't like was the quick resolution to the corporate intrigue subplot. There were a couple of aspects to it that didn't quite ring true. This seems like a pretty minor quibble, though, because the purpose of this thread isn't to make you feel as if you're watching a Law & Order episode; it's to develop relationships between characters. As for hotness? Oh, there is HOTNESS. K A Linde includes some scorching hot sexy times that will leave you feeling a bit ... needy, if you know what I mean. Austin may be my favorite Wright brother, but Patrick is my favorite Hot Hero from this series. Now onto Sutton. When last we saw her, she had been hit by a tragic, heartbreaking loss. I need to know she's happy. Do you hear me, K A Linde? I NEED TO KNOW.

The Wright Secret is the story about Morgan Wright and Patrick Young. Morgan has been in love with Patrick since she was 15 years old. She is taking over the CEO position at Wright Construction and everything she has worked for is finally in reach for her, so she is going to check another thing off her list, Patrick Young. Patrick has always looked at Morgan as a great friend but all of a sudden, he is starting to look at her in a different light. Morgan decides to make a move on Patrick at his place one night, however Patrick declined and to Morgan that felt like he rejected her. She is working on moving past that and decides to move along and start dating to try to finally get over him. Here is where our story begins :) I liked Morgan, she is a strong character, smart, beautiful, snarky, and a good person. She is in no way without her faults as well. She is young to be a CEO but she has busted her butt to achieve the goal. I liked her banter and relationship with her family and overall I think she was a great heroine. Patrick, he is YUMMY. I think that he was hit by a ton of bricks when he realized that he had feelings for Morgan. I Loved watching him come to grips with that fact and seeing how he would handle it. I think that he had everyones best interest in mind and I loved the fact that he was so sure of his feelings (once he admitted them lol). One of the things that I really liked about this book is that there wasn't a TON of angst with the 2 characters. Some of these brother's best friend books, they base their angst on the whole "hiding" of the relationship and it is over played. Ms. Linde did an excellent job with the fact that she didn't draw it out and didn't make it like either character just had to keep it ALL a secret. I really liked that. I felt that showed the maturity of the characters. Also, I loved the extra story plot in here with the Uncle. LOVED IT... but... I REALLY wanted there to be a bigger fall out (I am vindictive at times lol) with Owen and Bailey LOL but alas, I am just the reader not the writer. The pacing was great, the story flowed very well. The scenes between Morgan and Patrick were good (I would have liked a little more dirty but it wasn't a deal breaker for me). Character depth was great, the characters felt like they were actual adults and I felt that they dealt with things in a mature manner. I highly recommend and I plan to go back and read the rest of the siblings stories. :) I am looking forward to maybe seeing Sutton and David???

***ARC Provided by the Author and InkSlingerPR*** 4.5 Stars Patrick and Morgan, well, what can I say. I have been waiting for this one through the whole series and it did not disappoint. I loved the characters, I loved that Morgan is both strong and insecure. I really loved that no one really doubted that she could be CEO because she was a woman. Yes, there were some doubts about her abilities, but they were focused on her being new and the size of the company...and somewhat driven by outside forces that are spoilers. I love the way the stories intertwine, how the other characters from the previous stories are a factor in this one, but not in such a way that they detract from the central story of Patrick and Morgan. And, what a story it was. I loved, LOVED that she thought he pushed her aside and rejected her. This wouldn't have worked if we didn't have the dual POV, but knowing what he was thinking, and the reasons for it, helped to really be able to engage with him even when he was being an idiot. The chemistry and the connection also really worked. To go from a friends to lovers, there has to be a strong enough connection and draw for me to be willing to believe that they would risk their friendship, and I believed it for Patrick and Morgan. And, I can't end this without talking about supporting characters, specifically David and Sutton and how much I loved not only their story in this, and the glimpses of their relationship and the fact that there is a duet coming with their story. I recommend this title, and I am looking forward to the next ones in the series. ***This and other reviews featured on our blog Booked All Night ***

This series continues to make me swoon. The Wright family is such a close knit family is is completely supportive of one another. As Morgan takes over the family business, she also gets a shot with Patrick, her brother's best friend, that she have always loved from afar. This is their chance at romance. The author has done such a fantastic job of bringing us into the Wright's world. This book can be read as a standalone, but you will enjoy it so much more if you've read the other books. The story was good and Morgan and Patrick has me swooning as they became a couple. I've loved these two through the series and I was so excited to read their story. I'm really excited to see how the series plays out in the next book! May can't come soon enough!

Who doesn’t love secrets? Especially the hot, irresistible kind... I love falling for your brothers best friends books and this one did not disappoint. Morgan was such an amazing character, with the weight of a company on her shoulders she never cowered. She is the true definition of strong woman! Patrick is seriously so charming and irresistible. When the two get together, you’re like Ahhhhhhh! But she has 3 older brothers who might not understand. This was a great read with a lot of great chemistry!

In The Wright Secret, we get a fun twist on the Wright Brothers we have read thus far; we get Morgan’s story! This book was long anticipated and Kyla has mixed in just the right of angst into this one that Patrick and Morgan’s story, will leave you on the edge of your seat. From cover to cover, this book is fun, witty, sexy and a little angsty all tossed together! It has been so much fun seeing Morgan in the background throughout the series so far, so getting to see the family business, her brothers and her relationships through her eyes was truly a magnificent journey. In the latest installment of the Wright series, we get Morgan Wright’s story. Fresh on the job as CEO of Wright Construction, her feelings for Patrick couldn’t be stronger. She has been in love with her brother’s best friend for years. Patrick on the other hand, has been oblivious to Morgan’s feelings. When her journey into her new career within the family company takes her down a path with Patrick she had always dreamed about, she must desperately attempt to find a work/life balance before she loses them both. As Morgan struggles to find her balance, and her future at Wright construction hanging over her head, you truly get to see how strong of a character she is. She is independent, loyal and such an inspiration to woman. We also have some adventures with the sub-characters that added a few twists to the story. The Wright’s Uncle is in town, and we see a new character thrown into the mix that is defiantly there to throw their lives into a tailspin. We get to also catch up with the brothers we love so much from the other books in the series. We see glimpses of Austin and Jensen which adds a bit of nostalgia to catch up with some of our past favorites. Overall this book was truly a 5-star read that didn’t dissatisfy and was very well unfolded throughout. *I received an ARC copy of this title at my request and am providing this voluntary review*

***5 ‘The Other Side to My Coin’ Stars*** I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each Wright book I’ve read, and I have read them all because once you start, the NEED to see them all get their HEA’s is strong. So, it should come as no surprise that I was all about getting my hands on this one, especially after the little teases about Morgan’s crush on Patrick sprinkled throughout the series and I ADORED this book. It was all kinds of sweet and smexy with a good dose of humor and with just the right amount of drama to keep me turning the pages, but not wanting to toss my ereader into the freezer. I want my own Patrick. The man is all kinds of book boyfriend goodness. He’s loyal, honest compassionate and simply a good man who once he makes a decision, he is all in come hell or high water. Morgan. This woman is a special kind of crazy. She is such a workaholic that I wanted to reach through my ereader and force her to stop, but I understood why she was that way and couldn’t help but admire her drive. Her passion is her job and it’s been that constant in her life. And though work does have a tendency to blind her to other things, she has a huge heart that truly cares for those she call her own. The whole brothers best friend/best friends sibling trope is one that can go in numerous directions and can get a bit cray cray, but I loved how Patrick’s and Morgan’s journey played out. There was drama, but nothing over the top. They acted like adults, for the most part, there were a few inner conversations and actions that toed the line, but they communicated and had pretty valid reasons for keeping things on the down low and when they got busted...well it was and wasn’t what I thought would happen and I loved it. There is one major issue that lands squarely between them and it’s there from the start, so it isn’t much of a surprise when it causes a disruption in their relationship, but I like how it was handled and how everything worked out in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed The Wright Secret. It was a fun read and I loved not only getting to know Patrick and Morgan, but catching up with the rest of the Wright’s and their significant others. There is a part of me that wants to claim this as my fav of them all, but we still have Sutton who is at loose ends still and from what comes to light in this book I am keeping my toes crossed that she will be getting her HEA sooner rather than later. ~ Copy provided by InkSlinger PR & voluntarily reviewed ~

The worst kept secret has become the best guilty pleasure. Morgan and Patrick were a match twelve years in the making. The younger sister and the brother's best friend may have taken the long way, but they caught up pretty quickly. Naughty meets nice and delivers sweet. K.A. Linde has teased an attraction between these two from the very beginning. It was fun to hear their journey in their own words.
