Chantilly White did it again. She made me cry with happiness.

This belated holiday gift from her was well worth the wait. "Unwrapped" is a great story of true friendship, true passion and true love. Mia is not sure that love really does exist, given what she saw growing up of her mother's flighty history with relationships. She's decided that saving herself for that one person who is reliable enough to stick with her at least for 3 months should be a win-win situation for them both. But she's ha

Unwrapped
By Chantilly White

Mia’s fallen for some real losers along the way. But because she has a three month dating rule, she’s never given them her virginity. But her best friend, Derrick has other plans. He has feelings for Mia and will do anything to get her to realize that he’s the only one for her.

Mia is a beautiful woman who doesn’t see her own beauty. She’s been hurt by the last guy she dated who said she wasn’t good enough. She views her body as the enemy, not as desirable. This is so r

Having read and enjoyed the 'Pearl' series by Ms. White, I was anxious to pick this one up and extend my Christmas season. 'Unwrapped' is the story of Mia and Derrick, two friends who decide to take their friendship to the next level. As often happens, misunderstandings occur along the way and they part - with Derrick going as far as Tokyo to recover. When he returns, he receives a Christmas present he had only dreamed of!

Ms. White has done it again. I was thoroughly entranced and spent probably

This is a sweet story about two friends who deepen their relationship. Nice and fast to read, nothing special.

She is a 25-year-old virgin who only once had one relationship for more than three months, all the other relationships (plenty in number) didn't last long. Oh and she has some issues, she doesn't believe in love.
He is her best friend since 8 years and secretly in love with her.
After her latest breakup he decides to confess, but before he has the chance to tell her his feelings she asks

Best friend become lovers romance story about hot and kind computer guy; Derrick Fox and charity fundraiser, Mia who have been friends since college. They have ut both of themselves in the friendzone without being brave enough to talk about their hidden feelings that go beyond friendship. There is lots of cute sexy build up because of Mia's three months rule, which is pretty smart IMO. The holiday theme comes from the fact that the three months will be up on Christmas day so they are going to 'd ...more

Unwrapped - Chantilly White

Unwrapped is a lovely story about two best friends who love each other. The problem is that they don't know about the love the other has towards them.

It is frustrating to see Derrick and Mia so in love with each other and be faced with so many obstacles to prevent them both from being honest with each other.

Derrick knows how he feels about Mia and decides now is the time to tell her. How will Mia react? Especially as she has just split up with Barry.

This book is wel

I enjoyed this book about two friends who become in love with each other. Mia has a three month rule before she will consider having sex with her boyfriend. That is why she is still a virgin at 25. Derrick has nana her friend since college and has been secretly in love with her for years. Now the story begins with Mia going thru a breakup and feeling pretty bad about herself. Derrick offers to be her boyfriend for three months so he would be her first. Things go well but he is in love with her a ...more

Determined to avoid becoming her mother, Mia has struggled to find just the right guy to give her heart. Thankfully, Derrick has been under her nose the whole time and has been waiting for the perfect opportunity to prove that he's the man for Mia. This is the best kind of romance, one where the hero must actually romance the heroine to win her from friend to lover, gaining everything and losing nothing. The path to true love never ran smooth, and this story is certainly no exception. But it is ...more

One of the most irritating H/h I've ever run across. h is whining because she's still a virgin. H has loved her for years but never declared himself. They manage to cover all the cliche bases before having incredible sex and solving all their problems. There's also the obligatory gay best friend and the incredibly sexy and wise best girl friend. Chantilly White has gone to the top of my Don't Buy Under Any Circumstances list.

This wasn't a bad story, but I almost would have preferred if it wasn't a romance persay. White skimps on Mia and Derrick's relationship by having them tell us how much time has passed. Very little of the 'dating' the two commence with is shown. Instead we're told of the numerous things Derrick did to make Mia feel cherished. White focuses instead on the sexual frustration (unintentionally) reinforcing Derrick's belief that Mia only cares about the end result of sex.

I made it a quarter way through the book before deciding that it just wasn't for me. The book is the typical two people want the other, but neither says anything so the entire book is the back and forth internal commentary of what they want but wont actually say. It just became too much for me. So the book get's the second star for what might have happened should I have been able to finish it.

A very cute and fun story about a guy trying to get out of the "Friendzone" The trials and tribulations of falling in love with one of your best friends.
I also liked that the story is set in Orange County, it was fun seeing all the references to places by where I live.
