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-term 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.
In a time where my attention span is about the size of a gnat, it is favorite authors like Jill that gives me the motivation I need to read. I don't know what the heck is happening, but there is nothing that'll bring me out of a slump quicker than a new book from a favorite author. Wrapped Up in You was exactly what I needed. Jill made me laugh, swoon, and tear up... Not to mention making me want to reach through the pages and slap a couple characters. Good times.
All joking aside, I loved this book. At it's core, Wrapped Up in You is about two people learning to trust when all they know is dishonesty. For Ivy and Kel, learning to trust those around them is something that doesn't come easily. Finding each other is one thing, allowing the other to get closer to their guarded hearts is where the real battle lies. When they do let their walls down, one mistrust threatens to crumble what little trust they have.
I've loved the Heartbreaker Bay series. It's the first that I've read from the beginning and I'll be sad if this is the last book in the series. I have a feeling it is. Jill has taken us on a wild ride filled with friendship, love, and a very adorable small community vibe. Wrapped Up in You was the icing on an already beautiful cake.
