All Wraped Up by Braxton Cole








 I was given this book for an honest review…here it is. So All Wrapped Up picks up where Birthday Wishes left off! Mari and Luca are still dating and trying to figure it all out. I loved the way this book flowed right from book one into book two. Yes these are short books but well worth the money! Braxton can write a very spicy love scene. So that alone is reason enough to by…but it really does have very good story line. I recommend it to read. If you liked Birthday Wishes you will love All Wrapped Up!


Mari and Luca continue to work through their list of sexual fantasies in All Wrapped Up, Book Two in The List Series. They’ve abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and, for the most part, Mari’s learning to be okay with it. She definitely likes Luca’s strings (and whatever else he might use to restrain her), but she’s not sure she’s ready to take the next step in their relationship. Luca, sweet, strong, commanding Luca, insists that it’s time to move in together. Mari insists it’s time to relax and enjoy what they share without complicating things.
With every moment they spend together, Luca shows Mari how good they could be together. Will Mari run away from her emotions, or does Luca have her all wrapped up?
All Wrapped Up is Book Two in The List Series and contains mature adult themes, including graphic and explicit sex.



Instead of calming my nerves like I’d hoped, the wine was only making me drunk. To hell with it. I poured my fourth glass for the evening and topped off Rachel’s as well. No point in being drunk alone when I could be drunk with a friend. She just needed to actually start drinking.
“So, tell me how this changes things for you.” Rachel had asked that question at least twelve times. The wording had been different each time, giving me a variation on a theme, but no actual break from the topic that had initially rattled my nerves. “I mean, it does change things, right? It has to.”
“Shut up and drink your wine.” I was done with asking her nicely to switch topics. She was like a damn dog gnawing on the bone that was my relationship with Luca.
“You like him. I know you do.”
I nodded and took another drink of wine. I had passed the sipping stage two glasses ago. I more than liked him, but that didn’t mean I was ready to share an address with him. My phone whistled to tell me I had a text message. I silenced it without looking. The odds were high that it was Luca again. He’d been sending me sexy, sweet messages all week.
“I don’t understand what the problem is.” Rachel sipped her wine and followed it with a bite of cheese. She was doing her part to savor the wine slowly, rather than jumping head first into a wine hangover like I was doing.
“Luca was supposed to be a fun distraction, not a relationship,” I tried to explain one more time. Rachel looked at me like I was brain damaged. Hell, maybe I was. We’d passed the point of a fun distraction months ago.
“Mari, it’s not like you’re some bitter, dried-up hag whose only option is to grow old with your ten cats. Yes, you went through a divorce. Are you really going to tell me that you are incapable of having a relationship because of it? Because that is about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Luca is a good guy. You know this. Stop freaking out.” If she’d been sitting a little closer, she totally would have jabbed me with her finger. From the opposite side of the table, all she could do was gesture emphatically. I was grateful.
“I really like the way things are between us,” I said. Luca was fun and sexy and sweet and everything I wanted in a man. I had been terrified all that would change because we’d said out loud that we wanted to add strings after our initial meetings, which had involved lots of really hot sex. That’s supposedly the only thing both of us wanted in the beginning, but then things got a little more complicated. So far, change hadn’t happened, but that didn’t mean things wouldn’t change the second we signed a joint lease.
“Who wouldn’t? That man is. . .” Rachel fanned herself and smiled with a happy, faraway look in her eyes. She was enjoying my boyfriend a little too much for my comfort. “He’s like your very own Prince Charming.”
She nailed it with one dreamy comment. My relationship with Luca was straight out of an X-rated Disney movie. He was too perfect. So far we’d kept our relationship neatly contained to weekends only. What would happen if we expanded our time together to all day, everyday?
