Heartbreaker Bay #8

Jill Shalvis

Wrapped Up in You by Jill ShalvisIt’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.

Book Review


Wrapped Up in You

Heartbreaker Bay

5 out of 5 stars

Wrapped Up in You by Jill Shalvis, the eighth book in the author’s Heartbreaker Bay series for Avon Books, is just as fun and delightful as you’d expect. Though the story takes place in San Francisco, the small subset of Heartbreaker Bay, and its many close-knit citizens, gives this book—and series—a beautiful small-town feel.

Everything from Ivy’s taco truck and morning kickboxing classes to a few group outings and Kel’s security consulting on his cousin’s new apartment building feels as if it could take place at any location in America. However, any long-time romance reader will know the story is set right where it needs to be, in a town we’ve never been to but can’t wait to visit again and again.

The word addictive often comes to mind when reading one of Shalvis’s Heartbreaker Bay books because though they take place in the same general location, they always feel fresh and new, and the characters always give readers a glimpse into their own impression of the town and its many citizens. It’s fun, sometimes quirky, and always a wonderfully written, expertly crafted romance tale where two people, despite the odds, find a way to connect and fall in love.

Ivy is a fiercely independent yet lonely woman, though she has no intention of letting anyone else know about it. Thanks to a rocky past, she struggles not to get too close to people for fear of being disappointed, and Kel, well, he understands that more than anyone.

It’s never easy to learn how to trust after being let down and betrayed by those you let in, but when you find someone who understands your fears and insecurities…pure magic can happen. And Wrapped Up in You by Jill Shalvis is all the proof you need to know that love is possible and magic can happen just when you least expect for it to appear.

Absolutely loved this sweet, beautiful romance!
