Pat's Review: Wrapped Up In You

Wrapped Up In You by Jill Shalvis
Publisher: Avon (September 24, 2019)
Series: Heartbreaker, 8
Genre: Contemporary Romance (M/F)

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.

Pat's Review:

I read everything Ms. Shalvis writes, sometimes twice. I also love to listen to her books on audio. Wrapped Up In You is the next in her Heartbreaker Bay Series, and it’s a winner.

Ivy Snow is a tough, no-nonsense entrepreneur, who drives a food truck called The Taco Truck. Her childhood was spent temporarily living everywhere. Different schools, different friends, no roots. At sixteen she left looking for herself and those roots. She settled in San Francisco, bought a tiny apartment and opened her business. She is saving every penny to buy a condo in a new building, and life will be good. Unfortunately she has a brother Brandon who is always wheeling and dealing and in trouble. He seems to bring that trouble to her.

Kel O’Donnell is Caleb’s cousin who is a sheriff and ranch owner in Idaho. He is on forced leave of absence from the sheriff’s department after an on the job injury, and consulting with his cousin about security. He is immediately attracted to Ivy. He feels she is keeping secrets and wants to help her. She wants no attachments, but when some worrying incidents start happening to her, he is right by her side. They both feel a relationship is not possible, his job in Idaho comes first, she wants to be in charge of her life, and a man in it is not for her. But hints and people change and the excitement, suspense and romance had me reading to the end! If you haven’t read this series, what are you waiting for? Each can be read as a stand alone, but your missing great stories with laughs, romance and wonderful characters.
