Book Review: Wrapped Around My Heart by Kelly Collins 6

Wrapped Around My Heart

by Kelly Collins





Don’t miss this heartwarming holiday love story.

Mark Cantwell has a life most men can only dream of—he’s rich, respected, and ripped. There’s only one thing he wants—to regain control of his grandfather’s company. When the chance finally pops up, he jumps at it even though it means ruining Christmas for his executive assistant, Jess Stone.

Jess Stone will do anything for her handsome boss. He’s everything she wants in a man so when he needs her during her family’s annual Colorado Christmas celebration, she doesn’t hesitate to adjust her plans.

What should have been a simple flight and a quick meeting turns into a road trip from hell, leaving the pair stranded in a motel room together in the middle of a snowstorm. Will Mark take the first chance he can to just get on with his business, or will he realize all he wants for Christmas is Jess?

Favorite Quotes:


Bethany had had a nanny since the day she brought Ben home four years ago. She traded in au pairs like other people did cars on a short-term lease.


When I turned away, I saw the women around us looking at him like they were the warm chocolate in a fondue pot, and he was the dipping fruit.


She gave you that come-hither, I-want-to-bang-you-in-the-bathroom look. How could you not notice? She practically stirred your orange juice with her nipple.


Well, I’m close to my parents. As for my sister … how close would you want to come to a rabid dog?


I looked for a gift for your sister, but they didn’t have a muzzle or a tranquilizer gun.


Just remember that men are inferior species. Knowing that makes me feel better.



My Review:


Kelly Collin’s clever sense of humor was front and center in this delightfully amusing and engaging tale. Her characters were adorable, the storyline was sexy and sweet, and I smirked and sighed with satisfaction as I made my way through this early Christmas present. It was a fun, pleasant, and light read guaranteed to lift your mood and put a smile on your face.


 Kelly Collins writes with the intention of keeping the love alive.

Always a romantic, she is inspired by real-time events mixed with a dose of fiction. She encourages her readers to reach the happily ever after but bask in the afterglow of the perfectly imperfect love.

Kelly lives in Colorado with her husband of twenty-five years. She loves hockey, shiny objects and has a new-found appreciation for green smoothies.

    Is this a one-shot? Because I need holiday books for Just Another Girl and her Book’s upcoming challenge.

      Yes. Actually, all of Kelly Collins’s books can stand alone, even if in a series, which is just one of the things I adore about her work, that and the HEAs and oh, the naughty bits… 😉
