It’s love. Trust me.
After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.
Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

It’s never too early for a holiday romance, especially one that’s written by Jill Shalvis! As a huge fan of the author’s Heartbreaker Bay Series, I’m always excited for a new addition to the series. While Ivy and Kel are more recent additions to the series, the author always takes care to create a tight-knit connection between the core group of friends, (which has expanded considerably since Sweet Little Lies) so each new book in the series feels like coming home. Throw in some Christmas cheer and Wrapped Up In You is the perfect feel-good romance.
Ivy Snow, isn't used to staying in one place for long or letting people in...at least until she moves to San Francisco. The hardworking and independent taco truck owner is establishing roots in the Cow Hollow District, making friends, growing her business, and longing for someone to share her life with. But Ivy's natural distrust of people means her guard is up when she meets Kel O’Donnell, an Idahoan sheriff and rancher visiting his cousin, Caleb, while on leave from work. The handsome charmer is just as emotionally guarded as Ivy and just as mysterious about his past, but the chemistry between them is palpable and the attraction is mutual and instant. Circumstances (and meddling friends) keep throwing them together and Ivy soon finds it more difficult to resist Kel's pull.
With plenty of humor to keep you smiling, a good amount of drama to ensure you won't want to put the book down, and enough suspense to make your pulse race, Wrapped Up In You is a compelling new addition to Jill Shalvis's Heartbreaker Bay Series. It's sweet and sexy, with a cast of characters that you'll fall madly in love with. It doesn’t hit you over the head with the Christmas spirit so it’s perfect if you want to dip your toe into a holiday romance rather than submerge yourself completely.
