Review: Wrapped In You (The Monroes #1) by Jules Bennett

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…

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is March 29th, 2016.

This is one of those stories that read a lot shorter than it actually was.  The time between picking this up and finishing it felt really short.

You can tell that this is the start of a series.  With three brothers with troubled pasts, you know that Zach is only the first one.  The dynamic between the them was what gave the story the most appeal.

The love story is exactly what you would expect.  Two people with feelings for each other but their inner angst is keeping them apart.  I wish that the back story of Zach was given more "air time" as I felt that it was something that should have been explored more.  In my opinion it was glossed over and as the reader you only got snippets of what occurred in his past.

Due to the short length I will not disclose any more in fear of exposing any spoilers.  This book helped me pass the evening on a particular tough day at work!
