SynopsisA 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.

Julia just dumped her boyfriend and she's ready to move on. He wasn't right for her and she's realizing that no man comes close to the one who makes her both growl and swoon at the same time. No matter how much she avoids Austin Wright, it only takes one look from him to remind her of their time together. And how painfully it ended. She doesn't want to make that mistake again.

Austin doesn't usually do relationships. He's never needed to. When he got close to Julia before, his fears got the better of him and their fling went down in flames. Now that she's single, he has a feeling that they could try again. But his constant drinking isn't the only thing that gets in the way of their happy ending. An abusive ex, family troubles, and shocking tragedy are all wedges between them. Austin and Julia both will have to make some tough decisions about their futures if they stand a chance at forever.

There were a lot of things I liked about this book. The couple had really great chemistry together. I found their arguments to be just as entertaining as the times they were getting along. They had passion and lots of sensual tension when they weren't stripping each other's clothes off. The steam level of the romance in this book is off-the-charts hot.

And I also loved the entire family dynamic. Some of the brothers and sisters are already paired off, whose stories I do plan to read. I have one of the books just waiting for me to find a day to squeeze it in. The siblings and their significant others were nice secondary characters and it was good to see our main couple interacting with them. One twist definitely left my heart on the floor. But I foresee a happy ending for the related parties coming in a future book.

But there were also a few things that I didn't love in this story. In the opening scene, I paused when Julia broke up with her boyfriend of a year and immediately wanted to hook-up with someone else. A stranger most likely. Huh? You just ended a year-long relationship moments ago and you want to jump into bed with someone else? Who thinks that way? No one with self-respect, that's for sure.

I ignored that inkling in the back of my head telling me I wouldn't like Julia and she did grow on me after a while. Austin actually did the opposite for me. I liked him initially and then started to dislike him after some of his immature behavior made me wonder if he was ready for a relationship. I guess I was impatient for him to hit rock bottom and realize he really needed help.

Overall, the story ended the way I think it should have. There was a change that happened in our couple throughout the book. Secrets were revealed and wounds made that needed healing. Austin faced his troubles, Julia found closure, and events brought the family closer. I think the author's approach to domestic violence and alcohol addiction was well-written and realistic.

In closing... 
I wonder which sibling will find their match next? I sure hope it's Morgan. Four suns!
