Review: Wrapped in Love by Lexi Ryan

A one-night stand with the boss was never in her plans. Neither was falling in love . . . 

The rumors are true. I am a hot mess with an awful track record at love. Single mom. Down on her luck. Yeah, I’m bad news. 

So if the hardest part of moving back home to Jackson Harbor was going to be people talking? I’d be fine. I’ve kept my chin up through worse than their decade-old gossip. 

I was wrong. The hardest part is resisting my boss. Brayden Jackson is the very picture of tall-dark-and-handsome. And thanks to an ill-advised one-night stand we had seven months ago, I know exactly what I’m missing when I turn him down. Every. Single. Delicious. Inch. 

But I have my son to care for and my job to keep, so I’ll keep on saying no. 

Until my string of bad luck continues, and suddenly my precious four-year old and I find ourselves with nowhere to live. At Christmas, no less. It’s for my son that I accept Brayden’s offer to stay at his place. One by one, my defenses are falling, as fast as I am. If Brayden was smart, he’d run, because it’s only a matter of time before he realizes he deserves better than what a girl like me can offer. 

Unless, for once, my bad luck is leading me exactly where I need to be.

Review by Jen Skewes

Wrapped in Love is the fourth books in this series.  From the moment I read the first book I knew this series was going to be fantastic and Lexi Ryan has proved me right once again.  I don't know if it's the Jackson men, the women they fall in love with, the friendships, the close family or that I just loved Lexi Ryan's writing.  There are just so many reasons to love this book and the series.  

Molly is back in Jackson Harbor, working for Brayden Jackson.  Her life up until the point has been tough.  Having to move away from home 4 yers ago to protect herself.  But she is back and wants to make it her home again.  About seven months ago she slept with her boss.  It seems given her past and the connection between them, it seems like it was bound to happen. It was a one time thing, a mistake if you will.  At least where Molly is concerned.  She loves her job but being back in Jackson Harbor means working with Brayden.  If only she can take her mind of him for two seconds while she is in a room with him, to focus on her job.

Brayden has been burned before in the past.  He is a workaholic, closed off and maybe a little guarded.  But that night with Molly was more to him that just a one stand.  One night with her was not enough.  He knows that she is broken in her own way and that she has rules.  And he is willing to abide by those rules if it means getting closer to her.  But he has every intention of proving to her that they are good together, that she is worth it, and that what they have is so much more than a fling.  

B Brayden and Molly were so good together.  I loved the connection he has with her son Noah.  That little boy stole the show at times and the way Brayden was with him just melted my heart.  Their story wasn't easy, they certainly had their ups and downs.  Molly comes with a lot of baggage, between her son and her past.  But Brayden sees way beyond that.  He sees her and he wants her.  

Wrapped in Love is a sweet story with the right amount of drama and angst.  A sexy hero, a lovable heroine and an adorable little boy.  It was the one story I was waiting for and Ms. Ryan did not disappoint.  You will love Molly and Brayden and the chemistry between them.  Another great addition to this series.  Cannot wait for the next one.
