Then comes the angst & for once it's the guy who runs. I just connected with the story & was hoping for a HEA. Not telling if there is one. A warm & fuzzy read.

Wrapped in Lace is a sweet sexy read about Drew and Piper. I loved how they first met and then realised why they thought each other looked familiar!
This book had a family feud, sexy times, a hilarious Nana and some angst. I really enjoyed the whole story as it was unpredictable and I certainly didn’t guess about Davis!
Drew lives in another town however. In this book he has come home for Christmas after 6 years, as his Grandmother wanted him to and he knows she is old, and does not want to miss seeing her anymore. After his brother and girlfriend all through high school slept together, 6 years ago when he was away at college, he had not been home since.
What Drew does not know is that his best friend since they were 6, his friend from childhood- Piper, is back in town to take care of her grandfather. He runs into her at the bar the first night he comes to town but he does not recognize her as she was 14 when her family moved away. Piper has always loved Drew and after she moved and he quit writing she felt so alone and uncared about. They were the best of friends and she feels the loss growing up.
The next night at his grandmother's house he comes in and there she is, the girl from the night before, and he is so stunned that it is Piper, and so happy! They immediately fall back into their old routine and are so happy! He can't believe how beautiful she is and he just can't help wanting to be with her. They spend the whole night reminiscing. This is a poignant story in many ways and you can feel it through the pages, the heart rending things that happened to them both, the sadness, tears, and tragic things that happened to them both.
Unfortunately, his ex girlfriend, now his brother's wife is there also, and that is why he never came home for 6 years. He felt so hurt, and his love with his brother was over. He no longer had a brother as far as he was concerned and the whole family is suffering. They want both boys back home. Things happen and both Piper and Drew take things the wrong way and next thing you know Drew is on his way home again, alone just like 6 years ago.
It takes his grandmother, who insists it was grandpa helping from heaven that made Drew's truck break down and now he is on his way back with his grandmother! Can there be a chance for these two to come to terms with the present and the past to have a future?
I loved the way this book is written, the characters are all well developed and you feel you are right there with them, going through the angst and feelings of happiness, sadness, being mad, and hating life one minute and loving it the next! This book is heart wrenching in many of the chapters, and I just have to say this book touched my heart, made me have tissues nearby, and had me loving the good parts and hating the bad parts! But there are so many happy times too, things that they both tell each other and do with each other, that they both will treasure always!
I loved the way this book ended and I gave it 5***** stars! I can't wait to read more by Prescott Lane, as she really is gifted in the fine art of story telling!
Let me point out, it’s only the aforementioned charm coupled with a Southern accent that makes that line sweet instead of seedy.
Really--a man can get away with a lot with that accent.
Drew Landon, at the request of his beloved grandmother, is coming home for the first time in six years, something he swore he’d never do. He’s dreading the prospect of spending the holiday season with the woman who betrayed him, so much so that he doesn’t make in into town good before stops for a couple shots of liquid courage at the local watering hole. It’s there that he meets an angel—a good girl to her core who’s trying hard to play the role of the vixen.
Drew and Piper have a long, emotional road to hoe and very little time in which to get their stuff together. Can Piper set aside her abandonment issues and give Drew a chance, or will his trust issues get in the way of their happily ever after?
Things I loved:
--The story is set against a small, Southern town at Christmastime, and has the benefit of all the charm and beauty and holiday SPIRIT that entails.
--Piper’s best friend is fabulous, something we don’t see a lot of in contemporary romance. Sometimes you just need that friend who will sit silently on the other end of the phone whilst you bawl your eyes out.
--Drew’s grandmother is utterly charming. Alternately full of sass & vinegar and sugary spice, I plan on being exactly like her when I grow up.
--The pacing is very well-done. The entire book takes place within the confines of about ten days, and the story felt complete without ever being rushed.
--Drew builds high-end custom furniture for a living, and we all know what a man who’s good with his hands does to me. I also love, love, LOVE the way he’s able to incorporate Piper’s art into his business. Not only does he recognize her talent, but he also wants to make it so he’s able to work with her at his side. That hit me right in the heart.
--Pearls. I’ve said it before—the very best, most memorable getting-down-to-business scenes involve props. And that’s all I’m saying. . .
A bit of a second chance romance and a bit of a friends-to-lovers story, this book is a little angsty and a whole lot of sweet.
6 years ago Drew left his hometown and everyone he loved behind, vowing to never return. But at the request of his Nana he’s come back to McAdenville, NC for Christmas , where he will face not only the reason that caused him to run, but one that may just give him the motivation to stay.
Sometimes you just need a feel good book that will allow you to escape from the real world for a few hours and Wrapped in Lace does just that- the story is completely engaging and the characters are so well-developed, I want to be a part of their lives…I’m ready to pack my bags and move to Christmas Town, NC!
I’m such a fan of second chance romances and Prescott Lane has done a terrific job with this book. Not only do Piper and Drew have their second chance at love, Drew has a chance to let go of past hurts and really move on with his life.
