BOOK REVIEW: Unwrapped by Melody Grace
4.25 Stars

On a Christmas Eve flight out of LA, Lacey James is in a hurry to make it back to Beachwood Bay in time for her friend Juliet’s wedding. The last person she’s expecting to run into is the bride’s ex, Daniel Sullivan. But fate seems to have things all mixed up, playing cupid at Christmas for these two opposites.

Lacey, an event planner, is more the fun and carefree type—take life as it comes. Daniel, a lawyer, is more reserved—a guy who has his life all planned out. Or at least he did, till Lacey best friend, his former fiancé, threw a hitch on the marriage plans and he now finds himself looking at Lacey in a different way. Turns out Daniel knows how to let loose and take control when a snow storm diverts their travel plans. A little alcohol and a Truth or Dare game and the pair get wet and wild. 
“He rolls us again, rising up above me, and my heart stops to see him like this: magnificent and unleashed. His eyes flash, wild, his face a mask of desire as he yanks my thighs wider and sweeps a possessive hand across me again, making me cry out at the flash of pleasure spiraling out from his electric touch.”
What started as a holiday flight turns into a snowy road trip where Lacey and Daniel have a limited time to figure what’s happening between them. Will they make it back to Beachwood Bay in time? And if they do, how awkward will that be if they show up together? Or will they get swept up in the wedding magic?

This novella moves at a good pace (though their relationship moves a little fast). It’s cute; it’s sweet; and it’s sexy. Though different personalities, Lacey and Daniel are both likeable characters and told via alternating first person point of view, you’re able to maintain a sense of where each of them is coming from, what they are thinking as their holiday travel gone awry unfolds, and where they are figuratively going.

An enjoyable holiday read that can be unwrapped any time of the year ;-)
