    All Wrapped Up

    In All Wrapped Up by Kimberly Kincaid, two lonely people running from their past reluctantly find heat with each other...but will it last? Nick has a past that haunts him, one he keeps hidden and doesn't talk about to anyone. He is physically and emotionally scarred. Pine Mountain is where he's escaped to, and the last place he expects to run into Ava...a love from his past, one he's never forgotten. Ava has her own past that haunts her present, her own secrets she holds close. Working as a reporter in Pine Mountain, the thing she expects to find out is that Nick is the hero of the story she's trying to write. A reluctant hero. The reappearance of Ava in Nick's life after 7 years opens up old wounds, but at the same time starts to heal some of them... There is something about Ava that draws him in and makes him feel again. Slowly they rekindle a romance that never really died out. Trust is a fragile thing though...and when it's broken can their relationship survive it? Ava and Nick really grew on me through out All Wrapped Up. I liked how Kimberly drew out their stories long enough to keep me intrigued, but not too long to feel frustrated. I felt like the backgrounds of Ava and Nick were given at the right times to further the plot. I wasn't too sure about Ava and what she was doing...I felt like she could have been a lot more open with Nick. I did like how Kimberly dealt with this issue though and how it was written, the meaning behind it. She really made me think about underlying meanings and looking deeper than the surface. Nick is such a tortured hero, I didn't know if he could ever move on. Ava was good for him though, even if it took them both a while to figure this out. As the story progressed I really found myself hoping they could find their happily ever after together, but I did also have my doubts. I liked the growth of these two characters. It was slow and steady all through all Wrapped Up, and I never really knew how things would end. Kimberly introduces some great secondary characters who are on the periphery but add so much depth and feeling to the main plot. All Wrapped Up is part of the Pine Mountain series, a place I enjoyed returning to, but it is a strong stand alone. I found All Wrapped Up to be so much more than a second chance romance...it was about healing from the past, trusting, moving on, and looking outside of your own perspective to a hopeful future. I'd recommend All Wrapped Up to any contemporary romance reader.

    Loved it

    In classic Kimberly Kincaid style, with this story she has made me fall completely head over heels in love with Nick Brennan! Throughout the series, we've known that Nick had a past he kept to himself, and now in this book we get to know the real man and the events in his life that have formed him. When a town event throws him into the spotlight as a hero, the last person he expects to show up looking for the story is Ava Mancuso. The only woman he's ever really loved but who simply disappeared on him years ago. He doesn't plan to give a story to anyone, to Ava - absolutely not!! But neither history or time seem to have changed the chemistry between them. Can he keep resisting her or will being around her again cause his heart to come back to life??? You definitely want to find out! I highly recommend this book!

    Beautiful ending to a fantastic series!

    I hate to see this series end!! I have grown to love Pine Mountain and all of the people and places. And this is no exception. I ran the gamut of emotions in this one. The heartbreak of seeing a long lost love, the pain of losing a loved one, and the joy of renewed trust and love. The bond of friendship, tried but renewed. The power of faith in someone is front and center and I couldn't wait to see how this one ended.  Seven years ago Ava left Brennan without a word, leaving him heartbroken and wondering why. Now she shows up and his world is once again turned upside down. With the rescue of a child, his past is thrown upfront and center with Ava writing the story. Can he trust her enough to let her in without letting his past free? Ava wants a story. But she never expected it to be about Nick Brennan, the only man she has ever loved. And the man she left high and dry. Knowing she must get the story or face losing her job and leaving the only family she has, Ava won't take no for an answer. But spending time with Brennan is dangerous to her heart. When she learns his past and is faced with a horrible choice, will she choose love or family?

    Love Pine Mountain

    I was easily wrapped up in the story of Nick and Ava. I always knew there was more in the story of Nick,he has always kept under the radar in Pine Mountain. Ava and Nick have a past history, and Nick has never forgotten her. Ava, needs to write the story of her life, and it is the story of Nick and his past. Can they both move forward in their lives and start again. Very well developed characters, loved that they both had scarred pasts. Both very strong characters. I enjoyed visiting with previous Pine Mountain residents, so sad to say good bye, but looking forward to reading about the Rescue Squad.

    I will be reading it again in the future.

    What I like most about Kimberly Kincaid's novels is that the characters are all human. What I mean is they struggle with flaws that we all have and many are misunderstood, but they are willing to do all that is required to succeed in the quest for happiness. In the instance of Nick, I was heartbroken. He is a good person that made some questionable choices. What I had an issue with was the apathy he received despite turning his life around. Ava was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. All Wrapped Up is story that needed to be told. It is full of heartache, wisdom, redemption, acceptance, love and devotion. I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review. I will be reading it again in the future.
