A new stand alone fake relationship romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I never thought I’d say yes to a fake date.
Let alone with Julian Wright.
But I’m stuck attending my perfect brother’s doctoral graduation, and I can’t suffer through another round of parental disappointment. Julian has to go to a charity function he planned with his ex-girlfriend. We both need a date.
Yes, we shared one kiss in a darkened office to make his ex jealous. But it wasn’t real. Was it?
I’m sure I can get through this. Until we get to the house and there’s only one bed.
I’ve pined for Julian for three long years. More than my body is on the line...I need to guard my heart.
Because if I get hurt in our fake relationship, then it serves me Wright.

A new standalone fake relationship romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde….  Read my thoughts and see my reasons for recommending Serves Me Wright.

I am glad for the chance to re-visit the Wright clan. This time we are getting Julian and Jennifer’s story. Serves Me Wright. The events of this installment occurred three years after Wright With Benefits.

After a string of bad dates, Jennifer created her ninety-day rule of no guys and no dating. However, she never counted on her fantasies in relation to Julian Wright coming to life. Her attraction to Julian has grown over the years, but he did not know she felt this way, and she never knew her feelings were reciprocated. Because of misunderstandings, their relationship never went beyond friend zone. Occasions arose where they both needed dates and so they agreed to fake date. However, their agreement to fake date to appease her overbearing mother and make Julian’s toxic ex jealous would open the door to the real thing.

Jennifer suffers from social anxiety, but is most comfortable when behind her camera. Behind the camera she achieved success despite negative feedback from her family. Thank goodness for the support of her friends. Julian appears to have it all together. However, the deeper one gets into the story, one discovers he too has his share of issues. A toxic ex-girlfriend who would stop at nothing to get back into his life and family secrets which will shake up his world.

I loved Julian and Jennifer as a couple. Despite being opposites, they brought out the best in each other. All was not perfect between them, though. Secrets on both their parts threatened their budding relationship. I enjoyed the romance, which was  a mixture of sweet and steamy with humour and a smidgen of  drama added to the mix.

 I had fun catching up with the characters from the previous books. Seeing where they are at in their relationships and what has been happening their lives added to the enjoyment of the story. Introducing new characters also added a little intrigue.

Despite its predictability, I had a great time with the story. I loved how the Linde dealt with the issue of anxiety and depression. I saw the reason Jennifer would hide that part of her from Julian. When you are raised to believe that such issues should be kept hidden for fear of being called crazy, then you would want to keep that part of your life secret.

Conclusion/Recommendation

Serves Me Wright is a wonderful addition to the series, and I had fun revisiting the world of the Wrights. Readers who enjoy contemporary romance may want to consider adding  this to their reading list.
