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 wr

Its been a while since I read romance with drama and angst. I would have DNFed the book but the dialogue and writing kept me interested.

Small town romance between childhood friends who meet again and realise there is more. h seemed more into H than vice versa. H was certainly into h sexually but not enough in terms of the love connection, IMO and he hurt h a few times just by being so clueless or not being into her enough. Anyway it was like being on a small roller-coaster and I was glad it ende

Wrapped in Lace by Prescott Lane is a perfect holiday read, but can be enjoyed all year long. It has all the things I love in a book: It's sweet, sexy, has a little angst, made me laugh and grin throughout, has side characters I absolutely love, and the main couple is great.

As Piper ends another crappy date that one of her well meaning friends or family set her up on, she sends a note to al

If you are looking for a sweet holiday love story, then you don't want to miss out on Prescott Lane's Wrapped In Lace. She gave us such a great second chance/friends to lovers story, that you couldn't help but have a huge smile on your face.

Wrapped In Lace is a wonderful holiday romance story about two childhood best friends who are unexpectedly reunited in their hometown during the Christmas holiday after being apart for ten years, and their discovery of the holiday season's magical gift of receiving a chance at love.

Author Prescott Lane weaves a beautiful romantic tale that takes the reader on a emotional roller coaster ride as they follow Drew and Piper's love story. Their story is set in the small southern town of McAdenville,

Five 'Bad Girl' stars.
I must admit this is such a cute and romantic Christmas story.

Ahh Drew is such a cute guy, who has been hurt badly, and he just needed the right person to make all his pain go away. He had no idea what awaited him back at his hometown.

Piper is the ('bad') good girl, who was willing to be a 'bad girl' just for Drew.

The story is beautifully written and it has the right amount of sex, romance, drama and a holiday spirit. And what made me love the book even more

Wow, what a page turner! I absolutely loved Piper and Drew's story. It is full of drama, romance, hurt and hope. A perfect story line and well developed characters has made it even better. Story flows flawlessly and kept me absorbed in it from the very beginning until the end. At times it was sad at others so full of passion and love. It's definitely and must read for romance lovers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

P.S. I received a complementary copy of this book.

This book put a big smile on my face.i can sometimes have mixed feelings about friends to lovers books, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved Drew and Piper was so perfect for him. There was some family drama, but it was believable and made sense based on the story. I think my favorite character was Drew's Nana - she was so funny! Prescott Lane has a hit with this feel good story of a man returning home after man years and finding love.

Wrapped In Lace was beautiful, sexy and gratifying. Drew and Piper were smoking hot together. Their love for each other was purely sweet and satisfying. I love love this book so much. This is by far Author Prescott Lane’s best work yet.

There hasn’t been a Prescott Lane book that hasn’t had me smile and cry and this one is no exception. I love the story of Drew and Piper. What Drew went through was horrible with Rob and Ellie.

Ellie did not like. I actually feel sorry for rob and that is saying something. I mean after what he did I didn’t think I could forgive him but he is stuck with this witch even though for some reason he loves her no idea why so I feel for him.

Piper was sweet and precious. So honest and just what Drew neede

Drew comes back into town hating every minute of being there because of his past and his family well some of hiss family that he can't be around because of the pain they caused him 6 years ago. What he didn't expect was that fate had something planned for him and had enlisted his grandmother in on it.

5 STAR READ!!! (Because I cannot rate higher!)

This was the first book I've read by Prescott Lane, and let me tell you... What the hell have I been waiting for?! I'm in love with this story and not because I'm a sucker for second chance love stories, but because this was is different than what I'm used to! Drew was in his hometown for the first time in 6 years and was looking for a quick hookup. Until that quick hookup gets sick in front of him and they forget about it. They don't think they are

Prescott Lane gift wrapped us a delightful Holiday Romance!

Drew & Piper were best friends growing up. Until the day that Piper’s mother appeared and took her away. Promising to write each other every week, they would survive the separation.

As time went on, the letters stopped. But neither forgot about each other.

When Drew comes home for Christmas after 6 years of not coming home. He was in for the best Christmas present EVER!!!

I love the characters in this book! Drew is the main man in this book and he is handsome, has a body to die for and most of all he is a self made man who works with wood and building beautiful things out of used things and making them new again, learned in his grandfather's workshop as he grew up, create beautiful pieces of furniture, and continues to do so after grandfather's passing. Drew is now an expert in his field and is known world wide.

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

If the boy you loved at thirteen sat down next to you eleven years later, would you remember him?

After a series of unfortunate incidents masquerading as dates, Piper Harper is D-O-N-E, done with men. Her self-imposed celibacy is thwarted, however, when a charming country boy walks into the bar where she’s drowning her sorrows and asks her to make him a Leg Spreader.

Let me point out, it’s only the aforementioned charm coupled with a Southern accent that makes that line sweet instead of seedy.

With Wrapped In Lace, Prescott Lane delivers a sweet and sexy short story about unrequited first loves (teenage) and second chances. We get the story from 2 perspectives, that of Piper Harper and Drew Landon. These two were the best of friends as kids, but when Piper moved away and drew moved on, their connection was lost...or so it seems. It was exactly the read I needed; sweet, sexy and angsty.

Set over a short Christmas visit, Drew makes his way home after six years in a self imposed exile. He

Well I was totally wrapped up, not in lace, but in this story. One of my first thoughts as I finished reading Wrapped In Lace was that it's one of my favorites this year. The synopsis only scratches the surface of the awesomeness. It was so much more than I expected.

From the synopsis I really thought Drew Landon was going to be a player. He's not! I fell in love with this character so fast. The dream of a perfect life in his hometown was crushed by his girlfriend of four years. In one night he l

A sweet and sexy story which is the perfect excuse to start a little festive reading, ‘Wrapped in Lace’ is swoon-worthily romantic and a great treat for this time of year as the cold nights roll in, and you want to curl up with a good book.

There is a second-chance feel to Piper and Drew’s romance, but it isn’t in the traditional, heart-breaking first love way, but in a natural progression of their being close friends as children, crushing on each other as teenagers, and then being separated by m

Every year I like to find some holiday stories both in print and on TV that touch my heart and make me happy…Wrapped In Lace is one.

As you know I love a good second chance story. They make me feel good and hopeful. Wrapped In Lace is a story of childhood friends and want-to-be lovers who lose contact when Piper moves away.

This story has young love, stolen love, betrayal of love, lost love, new love and forgiveness. This is another emotional, (love, hate, betrayal) story that just kept me so tied up in it, that I couldn't put it down.

At fourteen Piper moved away to live with her mother. Drew left at eighteen returning six years later to celebrate Christmas with family. This story will put you in the mood for a winter wonderland with the upcoming Christmas holiday.

I have to preface this review with the admission that I am a holiday romance junky. Countdown to Christmas on ABC Family? Yeah, I'm there. Hallmark Movies? Ask my husband and sons... it's a sickness. So when I got the opportunity to review a holiday romance written my Prescott Lane I JUMPED at the chance. Therefore, I think I may have rated this book higher than the average review. But that's because I LOVE this type of story. So understand that and take it how you will.
