I love catching up with the Wright family and who would have thought I would still be so invested at book 11 as I was with book 1, in fact for me this series has just gotten better and better with each release and that’s hard to do especially when the first books were such big hits. This is Campbell Abbey and Blaire Barker’s entertaining yet emotional tale and like the previous books their journey starts in the small town of Lubbock, Texas. Campbell is the lead singer with a successful rock band and he is back home looking to write music and hopefully get a second chance with woman who was the muse for his first hit song. Blaire will never put her heart on the line again, she will never give Campbell a chance to break her all over again but will she be strong enough to follow her head and not her heart and what happens when Campbell does everything in his power to prove he is a changed man that deserves a second chance….. This book ticked all my boxes, it’s emotional yet entertaining, it has the perfect mix of passion and angst but more importantly it’s a beautifully written love story set in a town I would love to call home with residents I would want as friends. This is a perfect addition to one of my favourite series.

NOTE: For followers and fans of KA Linde, there is a slight crossover with the cameo appearance of English and Court Kensington from the author’s CRUEL series Told from dual first person perspectives (Campbell and Blaire) WRIGHT THAT GOT AWAY is a second chance romance focusing on twenty-six year olds, rock star Campbell Abbey, and Marie ‘Blaire Blush’ Barker. Blaire and Campbell were high school sweethearts in Lubbock Texas but days after graduating Campbell announced he was going to Los Angeles, alone, to make it big in the music industry, leaving a heart broken Blaire behind. Fast forward eight years, wherein Campbell Abbey returns home to help celebrate award winning winery season, a celebration that brings him face to face with the woman he has never forgotten. Enter Blaire Barker, social media star, and the woman with whom he is still in love but Blaire struggles in the face of betrayal and loss, grief and heart break, knowing to catch up with Campbell means to remember the past. What ensues is the rebuilding romance and relationship between Campbell and Blaire, and the potential fall-out as the past comes full circle, pushing Campbell out of her life, again. Campbell Abbey knew he was about to destroy Blaire Barker’s heart but Campbell was all about the music, and to stay home, meant never seeing his dream come to fruition. Blaire has always been Campbell’s muse, and with their reconnection, Campbell’s star is about to rise, once again.

The $ex scenes are erotic, emotional and intense without the use of over the top,sexually graphic language and text. Once again, there is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters, many whom we have met in previous story lines: Campbell’s fellow Cosmere bandmates: Michael, Santi, Vivi, Yorke, manager Bobby, and PR agent English Kensington and her husband Court ; Campbell’s sister Nora; Blaire’s assistant Honey; Piper and Hollin Abbey (Wright Rival); Weston Wright; and fellow social media star Nate King. Weston and Nora’s story line is next in ALL THE WRIGHT MOVES. WRIGHT THAT GOT AWAY is a story of loss and love, betrayal and vengeance; second chances and forgiveness, heart break and acceptance. The premise is emotional, edgy and sensitive; the romance is spicy and provocative; the characters are sassy, spirited, charismatic and wounded.
5 star Review of Wright That Got Away (Wright #11) by K.A. Linde I love the Wright family, so any book that is a part of this universe is sure to be a winner for me. Having read the previous books in the Wright Brothers series I was excited to dive in to Campbell Abbey and Blaire Barker’s story . This was a great addition to the series and I quickly became invested in the story that K.A. Lind wove. It was great to be back in Lubbock, Texas and to catch up with some familiar faces. I enjoy small town romance and Wright That Got Away ticked all the boxes for me. It’s a second chance at love story that was captivating. I really loved blogger Blaire, she is such a kind, caring, compassionate woman who I could easily see as a friend. Campbell is the lead singer of a world famous band. He and Blaire have a complicated history as he broke her heart when he left to pursue his music career. Now he’s back and wants a second chance, but Blaire is determined that she will not put her heart on the line again. There was angst, romance, passion and so many emotions that I found it entertaining to watch the journey that Campbell and Blaire travelled. Can they work through the past? Can Campbell convince Blaire to take a chance? One click and find out.
