Jacqueline Maguire has a problem tying the knot. After fleeing the altar (again), the runaway bride drives off with no particular destination in mind. Which is how Jac finds herself stranded in a snowstorm with a hot, hard-bodied stranger who treats her to the naughtiest night of her life... but come morning, he's long gone.
Contractor Patrick McPherson is deeply committed to his bachelor lifestyle. No strings, no rings. As the Christmas season approaches, however, Patrick still can't quite forget his curvalicious one-night stand. Then Jac shows up unexpectedly, and all holiday hell breaks loose. Because this year, Patrick is getting the biggest Christmas surprise of his life...
Having read the previous two books in this series ( can all be read as standalone if you wish ) and seriously loving them, I felt like I was visiting my old friends the McPherson's for the holidays.
Unwrapped is Patrick McPherson's book ( look at that yummy cover ) and with him being a more serious character at times, I thoroughly enjoyed the silliness of Jac. She had her shallow moments but her naivety and wild imagination also make her fun and likable despite her snobby attitude at times. I also liked that her snobbery came from a place of vulnerability from her upbringing with her mother.
I loved the opposites attract plot line and these two main characters butting heads and of course making up. It made for a really fun story with lots of chemistry. Not to mention the overall sense of Family and friendship with the McPherson clan. I especially love the crazy meddling match making Aunt. She's a hoot!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can see it becoming a holiday reread favorite. I would love for there to be more books in this series and am also hoping to explore some of Katie Lane's other works as well. If you love fun Christmas stories with love, friendship, family, humor, and maybe even a guy in a kilt, then you won't want to miss this one. It can be read as a standalone but I always enjoy reading the full series to get the full enjoyment of all the characters.
