Review: Wrapped Up in You (Heartbreaker Bay #8) by Jill Shalvis

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.

Wrapped Up In You is the 8th story in the Heartbreaker Bay Series and it follows the story of Kel and Ivy. Ivy is used to being constantly on the move. She is in an expert in all things and has never stayed in any place for a long time. San Francisco might be the place that changes everything for her. She has a job she loves and has a place to call her own. She’s guarded and insn’t ready to let anyone in. And when Kel O’Donnell comes into her world, he threatens to turn her normal upside down….Kel too is a guarded man. He’s burned too many times to count, but there is just something about Ivy that calls to him. She is everything that he’s been searching for….or so he thinks. When Ivy’s past threatens her new life, Kel will find himself questioning everything he thought he knew…

Overall, I found this book to be a quick and easy read. The characters were easy to connect with and I loved the way that Kel and Ivy balanced one another. I thought they had great chemistry and loved that they weren’t perfect; each of them having their hearts broken before. Kel and Ivy’s story delivers on the swoon and steamy moments without going over the top.

Wrapped Up In You was a great read from beginning to end. I enjoyed getting to know these two characters and of course enjoyed catching up with our old friends. I can’t get enough of this small town setting and can’t help but look forward to see who’s story will come next. If you’re looking for a sweet, small town romance that’s filled with heart, friendships and characters you can’t help but root for, then look no further, Wrapped Up In You is just the book you’ve been waiting for.
