They’ve abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and, for the most part, Mari’s learning to be okay with it.

All Wrapped Up is the continuation of Mari and Luca's story and their kinky ways. I loved this book! It was not only full of steam but I also fell in love with this couple. They fit well together and Luca is well perfect! He is a gentleman in the street (um, Mari's mom loves him) but boy is he a freak in the bed! Mari is a VERY luck woman!!

Now for Mari. Um, I kinda wanted to slap her.

I rated All Wrapped Up 5 leaves!! I loved this book just as much as Birthday Wishes! I enjoyed how you dive right in to in this series, and although they are fast reads, you get to know the characters on a really in-depth level. Luca and Mari pick up where they left off on their "sexual fantasy list." The couple is still working through the girl/boyfriend aspect of

Mari and Luca delve further into their sexy wish lists in the second book in the List series, ALL WRAPPED UP. Braxton Cole does a great job of making sure Mari and Luca stay true to their characters and to the relationship they have. The writing flows well and the characters are three-dimensional, something not all novellas accomplish.

Mari and Luca decide to finally have their threesome and they ask Rachel to be the third. I did question whether it was a good idea to involve Mari’s best friend i

So in All Wrapped Up Braxton brings us more Luca and Mari. She picks up exactly where their relationship left off in Birthday Wishes. Luca wanting more from their no strings attached weekend only agreement and Mari being scared out of her mind to give more because of being afraid of getting her heart broken.

Let me tell you Braxton sure knows how to write a very steamy and juicy erotica story. The passion and heat between Luca and Mari had my body so hot I felt like

Oh holy hotness this is one of the sexiest stories I have read so far this year. This book is a continuation of Birthday Wishes - The List Book 1. If you have not read the first book you will need to go back and read it first to fully understand this story.
Mari and Luca have abandoned their original idea of the list and and no strings attached sex. Luca and Mari have decided to still explore, but they've given up the idea of just having a relationship that is all about sex. They both agree that

f I'd ever thought to make Birthday Wishes like the ones Mari and Luca make, I'd be one lucky girl! I really enjoyed this novella and can't wait for the next in The List series. Braxton writes with just the right balance of tenderness, humor, and heat. Mari is searching for a good time without guilt since she's none too recently become single and still isn't looking for a relationship. A girl's got needs, though. What she finds is a sensitive, sexy man in Luca.

All Wrapped Up is book 2 of The List Series. And, it is just as HOT as Birthday Wishes! Luca and Mari are on fire for each other and they cannot get enough! This is a short and oh so steamy read that is quite enjoyable.

Luca has made it very clear that he wants Mari and not just on the weekends. He is ready to expand the relationship but she still has her doubts. She is still feeling that all good things will come to an end but Luca is desperately trying to show her that he is it in for the long

If I knew there were guys like Luca to be found on online dating sites, I would have signed up with years ago!!! All Wrapped Up continues the story of Luca and Mari, who met online solely for the purpose of a smoking hot hook up. The chemistry between the two is immediate, and they are refreshingly open and communicative about what they want from each other sexually - and what they want can be pretty darn kinky! In All Wrapped Up, Mari even invit

There isn't any time gap in between book 1 and book 2 which is great. I always love a book where it picks up right where the previous one left off.
Luca wants to take their no strings attached relationship to the next level. Mari is a little hesitant about it. I mean if you just got divorced would you rush into another relationship? I know I woul

I thought 'Birthday Wishes' was super HOT and steamy but 'All Wrapped Up' kicked up the heat big time!! I love that the story picks up right where the 1st book left off so there's no unnecessary recapping of events or huge time lapse in between books. Ms. Cole definitely does not disappoint in this second installment of The List series. I'm starting to have high expectations of her work b/c she's never failed me yet, and I absolutely love her novellas that could easily rival any full length nove ...more

All wrapped up continues where Book 1 Left off with Mari and Luca continuing on with their kinky relationship. They have abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and Mari is finding herself ok with it all. She likes the Strings and Restraints that Luca uses on her but she is not one hundred percent sure she is ready to go into the next step of their relationship. Luca, sweet, strong, commanding Luca, insists that it’s time to move in together. Mari insists it’s time to relax and enjo ...more

I was so excited to get this book in my inbox. I had been waiting on it since I read the last page of Birthday wishes. And Braxton Cole thrilled me with this one just as much as the last. We ended Birthday Wishes with Luca and Mari deciding that they wanted more than just a weekend no strings attached relationship. All Wrapped Up picks up exactly where Birthday Wishes left off.

When we leave Mari and Luca at the end of Birthday Wishes, I wasn’t sure what to expect from them, or from their list. There were parts of this book that I was actually shocked by the progression of their relationship! (I was secretly hoping that they would still be together.)

The different things that they were able to cross off their list this time around, were extremely hot and I didn’t want to put the book down once I started reading them. I was still left wondering what else is on their l

All Wrapped Up by Braxton Cole is the second book in The List series. An erotic tale of new love and past issues and now the right attitude, and the right man, can get you through anything.

Luca is compassionate, sensitive, sexy and commanding in just the right amounts at just the right time.

Mari is still hesitant about the "L" word and the discussion she and Luca are now having about moving in together.

When it comes to the bedroom and their "List" then every things good and there's no communic

All Wrapped Up is the second book of The List series. We get to once again witness the lives of Mari and Luca.
Their relationship has reached another level and seems like they're ready for the next logical step. The only problem is that while Luca is all for moving forward Mari is not.
All Wrapped Up takes us into the struggle for Mari to move forward and allows us to find even more reasons to love Luca. It is not all hear

Okay I have to say I started to read this book and was unsure I would like this book. It had started out the Mari and Rachel arguing. Rachel had to much wine. Rachel seemed to complain. I felt lie she did not want Mari to be happy. After Mari and set up Rachel with Luca she had claimed down a bit. Mari and Luca I have to say that you too never had a dull moment thru out this book.

Jumps up and down.
Yay!! I I am so excited this story is continuing.

It was as hot as the first story. Yes, I am still head over heels in love with Luca.

I adored how it picked right up, where it ended.

Can Mari, get over her insecurities of her past divorce to find true happiness with the man who loves her to the ends of the earth??

Still very, very, hot, steamy and sexy. The passion is almost unbearable.

It was still full of fun. Exciting escapades. And a few surprises.

Mari has her guard up still with Luca in this second installment but I totally see where she's coming from.

They are finding that sometimes things can't just be about sex. Braxton Cole can write some spicy sex scene. Yes they are short books but you should still try them!

4.5 stars
This book is definitely for those 18+ years old.
The characters from Birthday Wishes are back, but this book can stand alone. After getting to know more about one another and find comfort in expanding boundaries that their relationship started with, this book tells about how they continue growing close to one another. This book also shows how it's easy to say I won't do such and such, and then ending up doing just that thing. An exception read to spend time

In the 2nd novella in the List Series we follow Mari and Luca as they explore the boundaries of their new found relationship. We also get to see a bit more interaction between the two and Mari's family. I do wish we could get a little more insight in Luca's family life.

All Wrapped Up is even hotten than Birthday Wishes and I think it has more to do with their budding relationship as opposed to the quick hookup!

Love it Braxton Cole!

I loved the sequel to Birthday Wishes. Braxton Cole did a great job of continuing this story. Luca and Mari continue their agreement, adding in dating to their situation. Mari isn’t sure whether or not she wants to move in with Luca, and realizes that she may be moving too fast with this relationship. Cole did a great job keeping up with the sexual imagery as with the last book, and it is hard to not be aroused when reading this book. It was very well written, and once again, I am excited for 2 ...more
