Wrapped Up in You – Published 2020
“William Reid is nothing special, except for his billion-dollar acting career and his, you know, face. (Apparently, it’s a good one.) Winning ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ was nice, but this Christmas, he has more important goals in mind… like finally winning over his best friend’s little sister, the super-smart and kinda-scary Abbie Farrell.
When a blizzard leaves Will and Abbie alone at Grandma Farrell’s house (if bunking with 27 pets counts as ‘alone’), it’s the perfect opportunity to pull off a Christmas miracle. Convincing clever, frosty Abbie to give Will a chance will take more than mistletoe, but hiding his lifelong crush on her is no longer an option.” – Goodreads
First of all, I did not know this novella existed. Second of all, I had never heard of Kobo before. That being said, do I now have the Kobo app? Yes. Did I sign up and pay for this novella that is exclusively on Kobo? Also yes. Do I have regrets? Not at all.
You know how when you read a book by an author you’ve read before and it feels a little bit like going home? I read Chloe & Dani Brown’s stories earlier this year, and Talia Hibbert’s writing is so uniquely her own that that’s exactly how it felt. Couple that with her funniest pair yet and have it take place at Christmastime in a home that’s shared by family and friends? Plus a friends to lovers trope? It checks all my boxes.
I wish we could have an entire book with Will and Abbie.
Also, Talia’s the queen of content warnings. This book deals with anxiety and it is handled with care.
