Wrapped Around Him
Could you fall in love with someone you’ve never met only by reading his letters? What if that someone was also a prisoner? That is exactly what happens to Christina Nickelson. After the brutal murder of her parents, she begins to correspond with prisoner #18794 to gain more insight into the mind of a criminal. She didn’t expect the connection she felt. Just as she was beginning to heal, the letters stop. Determined to keep living and drawing on the strengths that the letters give her, she becomes a social worker. Her most challenging charge, Jeremy has just been taken out of her care and given to his father, Cam Farrell. Cam is the president of the Moroad Motorcycle Club and Christina is convinced he’s not a good father. Cam has been watching Christina and decides it’s time that he take what is his. Cam was prisoner #18794 and it was Christina’s letters that gave him hope.
I loved this book! Even though Cam kidnapped Christina to ensure she stayed with him, he gave her independence and power. There is humor in giving a woman a loaded gun and telling her to shoot you if she feels threatened. Christina helps him to connect with and show compassion to his son and become the father he never expected himself to be.
If I had any complaints it would be that I would’ve liked more development for the secondary characters in the Moroad MC. I can see possibilities for several of the “brothers” and I hope to read more of their personalities and story lines as this series continues. This book can be read as a standalone, but what makes it an excellent book is the fact that I want to know what happens next, I HAVE to know what happens next, and the story stayed with me well after I finished it.
I’m giving this book a 4.5 star rating. This is an expressive beginning to a new MC series.
In the beginning, I was not a big fan of Christina. I am not really sure why, but I think I like characters that are unbelievably strong in the very beginning, and I just never saw Christina as very strong until towards the end of the book. I think it just bothers me in the beginning because I do not know the characters, but as the story evolved and Christina’s past came to light, I understood her and found that my first thoughts were way off. She is a survivor and I really liked Cam, so, as their love story progressed, I saw her weaknesses as strengths, and Kayn did an excellent job in making these two compatible.
Now, Cam on the other hand, kind of scared me at first. I had no idea how he was ever really going to be anything other than scary. I mean, he is the leader of the Moroad Motorcycle Club and just got out of prison. He was a big, scary dude. However, Kayn takes that big, scary dude and turns him into more of a human being that can love and be loved and not just be loyal. Christina needed security and I loved that Cam was able to provide what she needed.
The only thing that I thought was lacking was friendship. I know that Cam is the leader of the Club but I would think that he would have someone he talked to. I just missed the banter other characters could have played in the book and I wanted Christina to bond with some other girl or something. I just felt that even though they have each other, there was so much loneliness. I mean, Jeremy was in the house but not really. I can’t really put my finger on it but I just wanted more for all of them.
With all that being said, I really did like the story and the twists and turns and I want to read the next book, FOR LIFE. I have a feeling what I am missing will be in the second book and I would recommend WRAPPED AROUND HIM.
WRAPPED AROUND ME by Debra Kayn receives 4 out of 5 Stars for me.
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
I loved the concept of this book, a woman needing consoling, and the strength to live, contacts a prison inmate to ask questions about the criminal mind. The whole book could have been about that right there and I think it could have held my attention. That was just the prologue. The story just kept getting better from there.
Christina is a social worker and she really cares, loves the kids that are under her care. Her heart goes out to them, and just because the case has closed, doesn't the child has left her thoughts and doesn't mean she has quit checking on them. She goes the extra mile for these kids. That is where we find her, checking on Jeremy, because Christina worries about him being release into his dads custody. Something just didn't sit right with her and she is determined to keep Jeremy safe.
Cam is fresh out of prison, he is the president of the Mohead MC Club. Life has never meant nothing to him, he shows no remorse for anything he does, it just not in him to have empathy. He takes what he wants and he doesn't have any issues on how he has to get it.
This is good vs. evil, devil vs. saint, want and desire.... It kept me reading way past my bedtime. This was my first book by Debra Kayn. Now, I don't think I'll be able to get enough of her.
I give this book 4.5 stars
