A feisty stand alone friends with benefits romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde. With new characters set in the bestselling world of the Wrights, this is a perfect jumping on point for new readers!
I shouldn’t have hooked up with my one night stand... again.
To be fair, I was having the worst day of my life. I was sure that nothing else could go wrong.
Then in walks Jordan Wright.
We have a heated history, and I’ve been avoiding him. Not least of all because he’s a hundred percent my type with those big brown eyes, a ripped body, and his blisteringly broody charm. I said I’d never go near him again.
But he’s there for me when I need him. And well, old habits die hard.
I’m leaving in a matter of months, and nothing is going to change my mind.
Maybe in the meantime, I can still have my Wright...with benefits.

Wright with Benefits picks up three years after the events One Wright Stand. Annie is in her final year of medical school with her focus being on her choice of residency. Meanwhile, Jordan has been living in Luddock for the past three years, much to Annie’s astonishment. One would think that after their night of the best sex of their lives, they would pick up from where they left off. Alas, this was not the case.
Annie avoided Jordan, and whenever they came into proximity to each other, one could feel the tension flowing from them. However, fate led to their paths crossing on a day when nothing seemed to go right for Annie, which placed her in a position to accept help from Jordan. At that moment it became clear they still had feelings for each other. After much back and forth they declared a truce and embarked on a friends with benefit relationship. Curious to know how well that worked out, then you need to pick up a copy of Wright with Benefits.
Annie is strong willed and sassy with her main flaw being her indecisive nature, especially deciding the step to take regarding her relationship with Jordan.
Jordan spends most of his time working and avoids committed relationships. He fails at every relationship he has ever been in and he fears destroying what he had with Annie. His failure in relationships lay in his refusal to communicate, which revealed itself in his interactions with Annie. Annie may have been the queen of mix signals, but with his failure to communicate, Jordan topped the charts.
Annie and Jordan worked well together as a couple, and they brought out the best in each other. I had fun watching them grow closer to each other. However, their journey to happily ever after did not run smooth. They navigated rough terrains in the form of jealousy, miscommunication, pain from the past and the myriad of other challenges they faced. Linde lived up to the moniker, the queen of angst, as evidenced in this story.
I had a wonderful time coming back to the world of the Wrights and reconnecting with the characters from the previous books. It was also fun getting acquainted with new characters whom I believe will get their own story soon.
Wright With Benefits was another wonderful addition to the series which fans of the genre will enjoy.
