A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.
He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.
The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.
A second chance might destroy us both.
Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

I am such a huge fan of K.A.Linde so of course the moment this book appeared on my kindle I jumped right in to start reading. Seriously, I even called my boss telling them I was running late from traffic just so I could at least get one chapter in before I headed into work. I have been such a fan of this series since the first book (each can be read as a standalone) and each book being about one of the siblings that you can’t help but fall in love with keeps me on my toes and my heart happy.
The Wright Mistake takes us on the roller coaster journey of Austin and Julia and seriously- it is quite a journey. It is no surprise, as it has been talked about in the previous books, that Austin likes to have a few drinks. Well, maybe saying a few drinks is putting it lightly when in reality Austin has a drinking problem. (Even before jumping into this book I knew we would be dealing with some heavy topics and I love that K.A.Linde did not hold back.) So Julia and Austin previously dated and their chemistry was undeniable/off the charts however it didn’t last long and their relationship ended in a bitter breakup. As fate would have it- what was supposed to be a fun weekend away for Julia, she ends up being a stuck in a house with Austin and his entire family. Although not in a relationship anymore Austin isn’t opposed to trying to rekindle what him and Julia had in the bedroom however Julia is not on board with that… in the beginning. However as their journey unfolds Austin soon realizes that his carefree lifestyle does not come without consequences. In what he assumed was something that would be rightfully handed to him he soon starts to understand the severity of how his choosen lifestyle affects every aspect of his life. While Julia and Austin attempt to give their relationship ago again Julia’s past comes knocking back while Austin tries his hardest to kick his dependency. Unfortunately life does not always go the way we want it to and it can deal us cards we are not equipped to handle. Will Julia be able to forge ahead despite the past and will Austin be able to overcome his strong addictions so they both can find happiness together? Seriously pick up this book to find out and buckle up!
From the very beginning of this book to the last page I was so wrapped up in this story that it was all I can think about. K. A. Linde did such a great job at discussing such a hard topic. She made is as realistic as it is and was very truthful in how it affects not only the person but the people around them. I loved Julia and Austin as a couple- they were not perfect people but who in real life is? They felt real- their struggles, successes, everything was just real! Despite the fact that this book was about them, the side stories in the book gripped my heart just as much and I cannot wait for the future books in the series. Do yourself a favor and not only read this book but the entire series so far if you have not done already.
