The List Series Book 2: All Wrapped Up 
By Braxton Cole
Rating: 4.5 Glasses of Wine

Blurb:
Mari and Luca continue to work through their list of sexual fantasies in All Wrapped Up, Book Two in The List Series. They've abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and, for the most part, Mari's learning to be okay with it. She definitely likes Luca's strings (and whatever else he might use to restrain her), but she's not sure she's ready to take the next step in their relationship. Luca, sweet, strong, commanding Luca, insists that it's time to move in together. Mari insists it's time to relax and enjoy what they share without complicating things.
With every moment they spend together, Luca shows Mari how good they could be together. Will Mari run away from her emotions, or does Luca have her all wrapped up?
All Wrapped Up is Book Two in The List Series and contains mature adult themes, including graphic and explicit sex.

Our Review:
Before I start this review you need to know something about me....I am not a novella fan. It's just a preference. To feel a connection to a character I  usually need an in depth attachment. And let's be honest, it's almost impossible to form that kind of relationship in 90ish pages.

Now that we have that out of the way! When I was offered the opportunity to receive an ARC of All Wrapped Up by Braxton Cole in exchange for an honest review, I didn't immediately notice that it was a novella. I was probably drinking that night ;-) So when I received book one in this series Birthday Wishes, I groaned a little. I have never been more glad to miss a little detail in my life. 

I LOVED these novellas.

First up we have Birthday Wishes. This book was hilarious and sexy. From the very first page, I fell in love with Mari's dry sarcastic sense of humor.

"If I'd known the patron saint of illicit affairs, I would have lit a candle to him. However, a prayer straight to the Big Guy on behalf of my neglected vagina seemed too crass, so I let it go." 
Birthday Wishes is just like a midday quickie. Quick and to the point, sometimes sexy, sometimes rough, but definitely worth it.  I give it a solid 3.75 glasses of wine.

Now, lets talk about All Wrapped Up, book two in The List series. Holy hell, this novella was hot Hot HOT!! I'm talking steaming, eyes sweating, bitting your fist to keep from moaning, thigh clinching HOT! I wanted to do horrible horrible things to Luca. And if I didn't love Mari so much, I would want to pelt her with wine soaked grapes because she got to do all those horrible things with him.
"...my boyfriend just sent me a romantic gift consisting of an enema, an enormous butt plug, and a picture of him fucking my ass. If you want to date a woman, who am I to judge?"
It's not all sex though, I developed quite the crush on 'Luca The Romantic' just as much as 'Luca The Sexual Fantasy Explorer"

"I love you. I love you so much that I smell your perfume when you're not with me. I hear your laugh when I'm alone. I picture your face and it makes me forget everything I'm doing. I love you completely and thoroughly. And I know with an absolute certainty that I will love you for the rest of my life."

***Sigh***

I fell in love with Luca and Mari...and yes, in only 92 pages. 

If you are in the mood for a quick read that is uber sexy...definitely pick up these books. I can't wait for book three!
