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.
This was the first book I've read by Prescott Lane and I can say that I really enjoyed it. Wrapped in Lace is a very easy to read, flows well, great subject matter love story. Who doesn't love a small town romance? Drew and Piper's chemistry jumped off the page immediately for me. You could feel the need and want between them but yet that unfamiliarity at the same time...until Drew discovers who she is.
Drew returns home for Christmas after six years in Raleigh. Before going home, he visits a bar named Hank's. Drew is looking for a hook-up and what he finds isn't what he expected. Through endless flirting, Piper and Drew lean toward more that night until she gets sick. The night is cut short and is over before it began. The next day, Piper and Drew come face to face again when she is at Drew's Grandmother's house. It is then, when they discover their long lost friendship. This friendship picks up right where it left off...with longing and lots of love. During dinner, Piper knows that Drew is hiding something, a secret from his past. This secret has to do with his leaving his hometown and not returning. You will have to read this book to find out the secrets...you won't be disappointed at all! <3
Their relationship, the banter, and playfulness allowed me to fall in love with these two characters. The ending is not what you expect; you won't see it coming...I love unpredictable. The simple fact that the title comes from a phrase Drew uses in the story allows for a very personal connection. I, for one, can't wait to see what happens next in this series or even for this couple. I really hope the author gives us more of these two.
“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.”
“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.
