A one-night stand with the boss was never in her plans. Neither was falling in love . . .

The rumors are true. I am a hot mess with an awful track record at love. Single mom. Down on her luck. Yeah, I’m bad news.

So if the hardest part of moving back home to Jackson Harbor was going to be people talking? I’d be fine. I’ve kept my chin up through worse than their decade-

This is my favorite so far, I devour it in one sitting.I loved the story and the characters a lot.This was a sweet story.


Brayden is my favorite hero, protective ,sweet, charming and sweet.Molly is a strong heroine and I really liked her.They have a great chemistry, there was angst,passion and tension betwren them.

Overall, it was a fantastic and quick read for me .

A “broken” single mom who busts her butt to provide for her child, and give him a happy life. A man who does it all for his family and never thought he’d fall in love again after having his heart broken! Both workaholics, and both cant seem to stay away from each other no matter how hard they’ve tried.

Molly & Brayden’s story is good. She had a ROUGH past, and I do mean ROUGH. So she has a hard time letting herself fall in love. She doesn’t think she’s good for more than hook ups. Which is a fine

I've said it before but I'll say it again: I ADORE THIS SERIES. The Jackson family is the most warm, loving, amusing group of characters and with each book Lexi Ryan delivers, I fall harder and harder for them. But I honestly never thought I'd love Brayden Jackson as much as I do in this moment.  Wrapped In Love filled me with all the deliciously giddy feels I crave when reading a good romance but this one is ratcheted up even higher with a holiday spin woven seamlessly with an angsty love story ...more

“He deserves more than a girl like me can offer..”
This is in the blurb and it’s a huge turn off when a woman put herself in a bad light like this. Maybe it may turn into a nice book but my instincts say it’s going to be a pity party with the heroine thinking she’s not good enough.
I can’t stand self deprecation
Horrible heroine
She didn't deserve him, Brayden is pretty awesome and her kid is adorable. So that's why the two stars.

Brayden is a bit of a workaholic. His focus is on making the family’s business as successful as he can. But he is a bit distracted by his assistant and head of the new event center.

Molly left Jackson Harbor and had no plans to return until her boss offered her a promotion she couldn’t refuse. Now that she’s back, she is paying for decisions she made long before she left town in the first place. Weeks before Christmas she finds herself needing a new place to live, when she didn’t want to act the

I absolutely love this series. Lexi writes in a way that every book makes me feel like I am personally invested in the outcome. But in complete honesty I didn't really have that with this one. To be fair I think it was a case of it's not you, it's me since I read it while all the kids were around and I couldn't get entirely lost in it.

Or maybe it's that I still am not a massive fan of Molly. So before I explain why I best throw in a disclaimer that if you are reading this as a standalone, disreg

I was entirely too anxious for Wrapped in Love to hit my kindle. I had mixed emotions upon discovering who this book was about. But after reading it, I can for sure say that I all my uncertainties I had were swept away.

After reading book one, The Wrong Kind of Love, I was instantly hooked on this series. Although they can be read as standalones, I highly recommend reading them in order, as character and story development with ALL the characters takes place throughout the entirety of the series.

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Lexi Ryan has had me truly addicted to the Jackson Brothers since I first met them, and my attraction has grown with each new story she adds to her Boys of Jackson Harbor series. With each book more secrets, simmering passion, and love have been revealed about the Jackson family in the little gossipy harbor town that has been their home for years. After meeting both the tarnished Molly and the silent and broody Brayden

Lexi Ryan has done it again! She has written a story that has grabbed me right from the start and kept reading till I finished the book. Which by the way I finished it at three in the morning because I could not put it down. I was flipping my pages of my kindle rooting for these two to get together.

Molly is a single mother who has moved back to her hometown. She is known there as being a hot mess and having a terrible luck at love. But Molly does not care she is determined to work at her new job

This book is the first of four I'll read this year outside of my normal preferences as part of a genre challenge.

As I'm not a romance reader, I won't meander on for long about this one, but will just say what I liked and what I didn't like. The first 40% or so of this one was well done. The author went to great lengths to set up Molly as a damaged character, and it worked. That said however, once the obligatory romance (nee sex) began, it no longer worked. The story felt unbelievable to me at th

Chalk this up as another great story by Lexi Ryan. I've been following this series and the Jackson family from the beginning and have been loving it. This time we have Brayden and Molly's story.

I found myself surprised and happy by this pairing. And the more I read, the more I loved both of them. Brayden was this strong, responsible, but kind and gentle guy. He took a lot of responsibility on his shoulders but it was for the family he loved and I'm a sucker for that. Plus I just loved his take c

It's time to write a review for this book and I tried to think of what I liked and what I didn't. The first thing that popped into my mind was Molly. Brayden might not think of her as broken, but I did. I think that she went through some really horrible situations and that she needed to talk to a professional about it. She has some self-destructive thoughts and actions and I truly felt like she was still trying to find her place in this world and peace. I think that she needed to have that devel ...more

Lexi Ryan’s The Boys of Jackson Harbor series has featured a Jackson sibling and their significant other with each book. It’s a great series. Wrapped in Love focuses on Brayden Jackson and Molly McKinley. We’ve gotten sneak peeks of their characters in the previous books. Brayden is the older, serious brother running the family business. Molly is the girl with the bad reputation raising her son and trying to prove she’s more than the talk.

This is the fourth book in the Boys of Jackson Harbour and its finally Brayden story.
Molly has always had a soft spot for Brayden Jackson. After their one-night stand seven months ago in New York it has been hard to resist him, and now she’s back in Jackson Harbour all bets are off.
Molly had a terrible life in Jackson Harbour, but has now come home with her son Noah. Working closely with Brayden is hell on her willpower. Brayden falls in love and it’s a delight

There is nothing more frustrating to me than a slow burn romance, and this book was such a long slow burn that I felt as though I was going to go crazy waiting for things to happen between Brayden and Molly. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy reading "Wrapped in Love" because I did, it was just that there were so many times throughout this story that I felt like bashing my head against the wall, or maybe bashing Brayden and Molly's heads together and tell them to speed things up.

“If you really want her and she wants you, I'm sure you can work it out. When it's real, it’s worth the risk.”

One night eight years ago where chivalry reigned over the temptation and gave rise to admiration. Eight years later, a night where lust gave way to new feelings. But professional ethics prevent them from growing in the light.

Brayden is the eldest of the Jackson family. His last name could easily be changed for work. He is primarily responsible for the success of Jackson's Brew, the famil

Braydon Jackson is tall, dark and handsome. He’s also a stoned faced, notorious workaholic who is single minded in his pursuit of furthering his deceased father’s vision.

Molly McKinley is a single mom doing everything she can to raise her son. The thing about a small town is that people have really long memories and won't let her forget the “sins” of her youth.

Wrapped In Love is the fourth book in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series and features Brayden Jackson and Molly McKinley. Though I have not read every book in the series, those I have read I am loving and am looking forward to reading those I have not as soon as possible.

Brayden Jackson was everything! He was a workaholic but could be very caring as well. He was hurt in the past and buried himself in his work. Molly broke my heart. She was the woman with the bad reputation and struggling to move

Wrapped in Love was a perfectly heartwarming tale about learning to love and trust again. If you’ve read the prior novels, Brayden and Molly’s characters had both been touched on a bit, but I loved getting to explore them and how their relationship unfolded from the beginning. With the easy-to-fall-into writing we expect from this author, I was instantly enraptured by their connection from the first page.

With heart and a gentle hand, Ryan built Molly’s character with honesty and

Molly has been an interesting character in this series. At first we hated her, but we didn't have the whole story. Once everything came out, I found it hard not to like her. Bad things happened to her and she did her best to deal with them. By the time this book started I liked the life Molly was living for her and her son. With the Jackson crew she had a good job, working for good people, ones that didn't look down at her for her past.

The whole attraction with Brayden was great! I liked that h

One of my favorite kinds of books is those that feature a “flawed” heroine.

I admit I disliked Molly earlier on in the series but as I learned more about her the more I anticipated her story.

She didn’t make the best choices as a teen, and the reasoning behind her actions were heartbreaking.

Molly as an adult was confident yet insecure, strong yet vulnerable and was absolutely relatable when it came to struggling with feelings of self-worth.

Brayden was everything she didn’t
