When I was a little boy, the best thing about the holiday season was unwrapping presents on Christmas morning — tearing off the paper and tossing it on the floor. Now that I’m a man, I like to unwrap slowly, deliberately, taking my time to savor what lies before me. I still like to throw the wrapping on the floor, but now I know the best gifts come wrapped in lace.

And unlike when I was a kid, I won’t get sick of this present by New Year’s. I’ll definitely be playing with this girl day after day after day.

After six years avoiding my hometown, the last thing I expected when I returned was a wannabe bad girl to unwrap my heart and rip open my soul. But that’s exactly what happened. Now if I can just get the hell out of my own way, maybe I’ll finally get the best gift of all — her!

Come get unwrapped by Drew this holiday.

I fell in love with the cover first, I think this is one of the best I have ever laid eyes on. It’s sexy, it’s elegant and it’s subtle. Something that you couldn’t wait to get your hands on, and read.

And it did not disappoint, because Wrapped in Lace is indeed a great read. It tells the story of Drew and Piper, an ordinary plot of childhood friends-turned lovers, wrapped in a beautiful package. It was touching, but not heavy, it has some drama, mainly about family stuffs and personal issues, but nothing heavy, but will keep your interest from the first page down to the very last.

Not to mention, it is set during our favorite time of the year, Christmas. Drew was coming home. His first homecoming after a couple of years. He didn’t want to, but somehow needed to comeback this time. He didn’t want the pressure of facing his cheating brother and ex-girlfriend. He was planning of making the trip quick, and as painless as possible. What he didn’t expect was crossing paths with his childhood best friend, Piper.

I really didn’t expect they had that kind of history the moment they met in the bar. Drew found her awfully familiar, but couldn’t place her. But the moment their past were revealed, there were so many sweet moments between these two. They parted when they were 13, and things started to fade after it. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop the rush of emotions the moment they reconnected.

Their love story bloomed though the holidays: it was fast, sweet and steamy. Yep, can leave you panting for more. Drew didn’t expect his quick trip home turned out to be more. Falling in love once again, and facing his painful past. Will their newfound love make it through past the holidays?

The characters are easily relatable, and the situations are not out of this world. Oh yes, these are happening. And the ending? I was glad for a whole lot of things, most especially the ‘realness’ of it. Indeed, Christmastime is the season of love and forgiveness, but some things needed more time to heal.

Just like any other Preston Lane read, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Love and Christmas is indeed in the air!

EXCERPT
“There was this guy.” 
“OOH, a guy.” 
“Shut up,” I said, laughing.  “We flirted and drank all night, and he was so hot and sweet and. . . .” 
“You are totally gushing over a boy.  I can’t believe it.” 
“I am not,” I protested, but I knew I was.  “I don’t even know his name.” 
“Why not?” 
“I threw up before we got that far.” 
Sabrina fell back on my bed laughing.  “You did not.” 
I hid my head back under my pillow.  “I did.” 
“Girl, you are hopeless,” she said, still laughing.  “How hot was he?” 
I came out from hiding.  “Pretty damn hot.” 
“As in you’d shave for him?  That hot?” 
“As in I’d wax for him.” 
Sabrina started to fan herself, and I got up and headed to my bathroom, looking for some aspirin.  “We’ve got to find this wax-worthy gentleman,”  
Sabrina called out.
