One click this steamy enemies to lovers office rivals holiday romance today!
I love Christmas romances, so I was thrilled to read this clever, steamy, enchanting story. Rafael Cruz is my favorite kind of hero—a cocky charmer who meets his match and falls hard and fast. Phoebe is a strong, independent heroine who made me laugh every time she opened her mouth. Marti excels with snappy, face-paced banter, smart characters, and unique stories and settings.
I recommend this read—it’s definitely one I’ll return to again and again. It’s a stand-alone, but I’m glad I had read the first three books because you meet Rafael back in Book 2 as the older brother of hero Jake Cruz. I’m really looking forward to the next installment in the Pacific Ranch series.
Wonderful holiday romance!
I love holiday romances and Claire Marti's Pacific Vista Ranch series, so to have a story that combines the two? Heavenly! I loved the glimpse we had of Jake's brother Rafe in the Very Thought of You, and Wrapped Up With You, is the story of his romance with Phoebe. Adversaries at the office, because she's a rival for the position at his company he's been working toward, but sparks fly between them when they have to attend the holiday Jingle Ball together for work. I enjoyed that Phoebe was a strong, capable, confident woman and a worthy match for Rafe in every way. Having the chance to revisit beloved characters from the previous three Pacific Vista Ranch books on Christmas Eve was a bonus. I've loved every book Claire Marti has written and Wrapped Up With You is no exception. A quick, steamy, happy holiday read––I highly recommend!
enemies to steamy lovers!
This is the perfect little steamy something to take your mind off ... well anything you want your mind taken off of. I zipped through the book because it was so easy to read. That's actually what I love about all of Claire Marti's books. They are all easy reads that take you to another place. I have read the other books in the Pacific Vista Ranch series and loved seeing a character I had heard about in a previous book find his happily ever after. The story is about Rafe - the dashing playboy who has a different girl on his arm at every occasion, and Phoebe, the woman determined to succeed in a male-dominated career. Rafe has to attend a work event with his colleague Phoebe the "ice queen" where they have to play nice in order to win some potential new clients. She goes from ice queen to fiery goddess that night and - not to ruin things, but omg WINE CAVE. That's all I'm going to say. I re-read that section a couple of times, I'm not going to lie. If you like an enemies-to-lovers story you are going to love this one (did I mention the wine cave?)
