WRAPPED IN RED was the perfect short, sweet and very sexy story. It was well written and the two main characters, JJ and Liam, were instantly likeable. Even though it was sort, the author provided the perfect balance of storyline and heated encounters to keep her readers interested.
Recently broken up with her boyfriend, JJ is invited to a Christmas party held by that ex. Unsure as to whether or not she should attend, JJ decides that it's time for her to show him that she has moved on without him. On her way to the party she encounters Liam, this man would melt any girl's heart. They make a deal to attend each other's party as partners, not knowing what surprises are ahead of them. JJ and Liam's chance meeting will change their lives in ways neither of them would have predicted. Their chemistry, heat and attraction is instantaneous., and makes for some very steamy reading.
This was such a great read. It was HOT ... I mean volcanic hot ... it will have your kindle melting in your hands. Nothing is easy for JJ and Liam, but it's fun to watch them work their way towards their HEA. I love the banter between them, but most of all I just loved the way in which Liam was so tender and protective towards JJ ... this man was simply entranced by her. She was his from the moment they met.
A quick easy read that will warm you up on a cold Winter's night. A great debut from S.A. Clayton.
HOLY WOW!! I can't think of another way to describe this book.
This is the first book ever for this author, and OMG! I can't wait to read more from her!! I can't wait for the next book in the series! I literally couldn't put this down, and yes I know it's a shorter story, but OMG!!!!! SOOOOOO AMAZING!!! I was captured and before I knew it, I was finished with the book wanting more! JJ and Liam meet by chance, when she's going to her Ex's Ugly Christmas Sweater party, and one she shouldn't be going to that is! She stops to fix her red bow on her head, and the window rolls down!! AND THERE'S LIAM! They agree to go this party together, even though it's not even where he was going in the first place. LOL! They have that instant attraction that I love in books, and S.A. Clayton didn't disappoint in any way shape or form!!! Liam and JJ come from different sides of the tracks so to speak, and they agreed that if he went with her to this party, she would have come to his family Christmas. Little do they know how they are really connected. Life's like that sometimes, 6 degrees of separation! Once JJ runs out of the party, can Liam find her again? Can they have that spark again? I loved everything about this couple! Their instant attraction, their banter, the protectiveness of JJ from Liam, just EVERYTHING!!!!! I really enjoyed the story and twists and turns were so great!
Some of my fave quotes from the book: 1. I want to be much more than that, but we'll start there." - UGH LIAM!!! I can't! **SWOON MOMENT** 2. Last night was better than I ever imagined, and believe me....I imagined. A lot. - ROFL!! Liam can't help it with JJ!
Wrapped in Red is a 3.5 *** read, a hot and steamy Christmas novella that will have you believing in insta-love and the magic of the season! JJ is all set and ready to see her ex-boyfriend at his Ugly Sweater Christmas party, his new fiancee in tow, when she stumbles upon the sexy Liam on the way to the party. Taking him to the party, JJ proudly walks in arm in arm with Liam, ready to make Derek regret their broken relationship. Red-hot attraction is clearly felt between the two, JJ and Liam, however is JJ ready to go there with another man? Lots of steamy scenes between the two, Wrapped in Red is a story of passion, of moving on and finding the one you're meant to be with. This story is told from both points of view, and it is a novella, a shorter story than I'm used to reading. I feel the story could have developed further, but I believe the series continues with Dipped in Gold, the second By Chance book in this duet series.
I received a copy of this book, which I voluntarily read, in exchange for an honest review.
