The Monroe brothers found a home in Haven, Georgia, thanks to the big-hearted couple who adopted them all. Now, grieving their late sister, these three very different men will come together to honor her memory. And with the help of some unforgettable women, each will find the chance to build a whole new future…

Zach Monroe has made mistakes--big ones. The worst left the girl he loved injured, and his own brother barely speaking to him. It was a night Zach won't let himself forget, even when the girl in question--perfect, polished Sophie Allen--walks back into his life. A realtor, Sophie's brought an offer for their sister's dilapidated Civil War era property. But Zach's determined to renovate the rambling old place himself--though he longs to rebuild Sophie's trust in him…

A business deal isn't how Sophie wanted to approach Zach after all this time, but he won't let anyone get personal. She can't deny that the accident changed her life in irreparable ways. But watching gruff, quiet Zach beat himself up year after year hurts too. The wounded boy she once adored needed love, and the man is no different. Now Sophie will need every bit of her resolve to convince Zach to let love heal them both…

Liza’s Review:

I have been a fan of Jules Bennett's books for years and was super excited to give her new series a try. I was pulled into Wrapped in You from the very first page.

Zach Monroe is a reformed bad boy. He had a really rough childhood until he was adopted by the Monroes, who adopted 3 other children as well. Zach honestly doesn't feel he deserves to be loved by anyone thanks to all the mistakes he has made in his life. The biggest being the wreck that injured his brother Liam and Sophie Allen, the only woman he has ever loved. Even after serving time for the accident and coming home and proving he had changed by working hard, Zach still doesn't believe he deserves any happiness.

Sophie has been in love with Zach pretty much her entire life. Yes she suffered physically because of the wreck, but she has never held that against Zach. In fact, Sophie has every intention of proving to Zach that he is the only man for her. Sophie is such a strong character, who has never let anything that was put in her way keep her from living and being happy. Having Zach in her life is just the icing on the cake for her.

Sophie and Zach and really great chemistry from the moment they hit the page. It killed me to see Zach fight his attraction to Sophie. He honestly didn't feel like he was good enough for her and it totally broke my heart. My heart sang when Zach finally gave in and showed Sophie how much he wanted her and loved her. I honestly loved seeing Zach's softer side too, which really only came out with Sophie, the runaway teen Brock, and the stray dog and her puppies. 

Wrapped in You was a great start to this new series from Jules Bennett. Ms. Bennett gives her readers a book filled with love, laughter, and even a few tears. I can't wait to see each of the Monroe brothers finally find happiness.
