When I was a little boy, the best thing about the holiday season was unwrapping presents on Christmas morning — tearing off the paper and tossing it on the floor. Now that I’m a man, I like to unwrap slowly, deliberately, taking my time to savor what lies before me. I still like to throw the wrapping on the floor, but now I know the best gifts come wrapped in lace.

And unlike when I was a kid, I won’t get sick of this present by New Year’s. I’ll definitely be playing with this girl day after day after day.

After six years avoiding my hometown, the last thing I expected when I returned was a wannabe bad girl to unwrap my heart and rip open my soul. But that’s exactly what happened. Now if I can just get the hell out of my own way, maybe I’ll finally get the best gift of all — her!

Come get unwrapped by Drew this holiday.

Wrapped In Lace

An Excerpt from Wrapped In Lace

“There was this guy.”

“OOH, a guy.”

“Shut up,” I said, laughing.  “We flirted and drank all night, and he was so hot and sweet and. . . .”

“You are totally gushing over a boy.  I can’t believe it.”

“I am not,” I protested, but I knew I was.  “I don’t even know his name.”

“Why not?”

“I threw up before we got that far.”

Sabrina fell back on my bed laughing.  “You did not.”

I hid my head back under my pillow.  “I did.”

“Girl, you are hopeless,” she said, still laughing.  “How hot was he?”

I came out from hiding.  “Pretty damn hot.”

“As in you’d shave for him?  That hot?”

“As in I’d wax for him.”

Sabrina started to fan herself, and I got up and headed to my bathroom, looking for some aspirin.  “We’ve got to find this wax-worthy gentleman,” Sabrina called out.


My Review

This book is my second favorite story line… Friends turned lovers… I’m a big sucker for this and second chance romance and I feel like Prescott Lane did both in this story.  These two characters were once childhood friends, torn apart by Piper’s mother when she decided she wanted her daughter after years of letting her live with her grandparents… These two were super cute kids, who fell for each other, but torn apart before they could ever really admit it or explore it since they were too young…

Now years later Drew returns home for the holidays to make his grandmother happy!  Little does he know the woman and their neighbor have been scheming to get him there, not because of the holidays, but because Piper is back in town… Six years is a long time to spend away from family, but with Drew’s history with his family, it’s no wonder he stayed away so long.  I’d probably never have gone back after what he was put through…

The minute he steps into town he meets a distraction that just might be able to get him through these holidays… But he didn’t even get her name, and she did throw up, fall asleep and then take off!  Not that Drew was looking for love, but he needed something to keep his mind off the disaster his family brings to the table.

The minute Drew and Piper realize who each other are the fireworks explode!  They are truly meant to be soul mates… I loved every minute of their story from beginning to end… Yes some of it was a little cliche, but what great love story isn’t in some respect… I like Prescott’s writing and this stand alone drew me in and made me want more.  I’m anxious to see what comes from her in the future.  If you want a sweet, romantic, and not too much drama story about two people destined to be together pick up Wrapped In Lace you won’t regret it!

Se não têm robalo não quero!”…“Sem espinhas!”
