REVIEW – STRUCK FROM THE RECORD (Record, #4) by K.A. Linde

Struck Amazon


Clay Maxwell is a smart, quick witted, sex-driven, manwhore with the good looks to match. Plenty of women have shared his bed, but only one has ever been constant, Andrea.

Their rules were simple. When they’re together, it’s just the two of them. When they’re apart, anything is fair game. And it worked. For ten years.

But one of them has changed the game…

Clay must decide if his player ways are worth losing the one girl who has always been there.

He didn’t even remember what a time in his life before Andrea was like. He’d been a kid. She was his entire adult life. She was the girl at every event. She was the girl he would come home to. Without her, what the hell am I supposed to do?


Die-hard K.A. Linde fans are going to really enjoy this one! She always delivers the kind of gut-wrenching angst that I crave for in my romance stories. I actually only read book one in this series and I’m not at all sure why I didn’t pick up the other books, but that being said, I had no problems following and completely loving this one! I do suggest that you read the previous books because you’ll want to experience all the trials and tribulations that Brady and Liz go through.

The story centers around Brady’s younger brother. Clay Maxwell has always lived in the shadow of his big brother, and he has resented him for many years. All he has ever wanted was to get the same attention and approval that his father so easily doled out to Brady. Clay has been labeled the bad boy and he couldn’t be more proud of that title. He likes his women loose and he shows them to the door when he’s had his way with them. There is only one woman who has withstood the test of time and that’s Andrea Billings. They met when they were both thirteen during one summer getaway at their parents’ vacation homes in North Carolina, and had been the best of friends ever since. When they end up attending the same college years later, they take their relationship to the next level. Their arrangement is very open and it has worked for them. Neither Clay nor Andrea wanted to be tied down and so they agreed to be each other’s person but when apart they were free to sleep with other people. This worked for about ten years until one crazy incident puts things into perspective for Andrea and she’s realizing that their arrangement no longer works for her. She wants a FOREVER kind of love with Clay.


Andrea tries to open up her heart to Clay but he has his head so far up his arse, he truly believes that they have the perfect setup and he can’t fathom the thought of being monogamous. Gut-wrenching angst ensues and I ate up every juicy bit of it. Also, it goes without saying that there is a healthy dose of steam in this story that will have your temperatures rising ladies! K.A. Linde never fails when writing the schmexy!! She also has a knack for creating seriously douchey Heroes that you can’t help but fall in love with despite their idiotic tendencies. I loved Jack in theAvoiding series and I definitely didn’t have a hard time falling for Clay Maxwell. He was utterly clueless and a Grade A jerk most of the time but somehow he won this reader’s heart over rather quickly.
