Five Reasons to Read UNWRAPPED - my sexy Christmas contemporary menage romance

1 ~ It's sexy. So sexy that some readers have fallen asleep with their faces pressed to their iPad because they wanted to keep reading! Unwrapped is more than sex, but the characters explore many of their issues through sex. If that sounds like something that might work for you, give it a try!

2 ~ I mentioned it was sexy, right? How sexy? It's a m/m/f about three best friends who become lovers in a cabin in the mountains. They explore LOTS of stuff together in one wild weekend. I won't say just what, other than it pretty much runs the gamut from romantic to down and dirty, no limits, full-on…well, you get the drift!

3 ~ Like friends to lovers stories? Me too! And Unwrapped has three best friends, Cait, Matt and Tristan, who fall in love. Personally I say the more the merrier!

4 ~ Ever wondered what would happen if you discovered something shocking about people you love and trust? That happens with Cait…she walks in on her best friends and it turns out to be the best thing that's ever happened to her! This story isn't ALL just sex (although I personally think it's plentiful and yummy) but really emotional with a thread of angst too. These three friends really have to work hard for their HEA!

5 ~ Nothing says the holiday season like hot sex by the Christmas tree! (Okay, so that's a stretch, but I needed a 5th thing!)

Don't believe me? Here's what Pearl from Pearl's World of Romance had to say about UNWRAPPED, which she gave a 10 out of 10 and a PERFECT read designation! "The sex scenes nearly did me in. They are so hot and so excellently written. I’ve said it before and I'll say it again and keep repeating it till the day I quit reviewing romance novels: when it comes to sizzling, explicit, arousing sex scenes no one beats Cari Quinn. It's like she goes into my head and finds what I find extremely hot and puts that on paper."

Unwrapped's blurb:

Caitlyn Sachs has a great life. A family she loves, check. An incredible design job working with her best friends, Tristan and Matt, check. An amazing home she shares with the guys, double check. But her upcoming twenty-fifth birthday and the desire to shed the burden of her virginity have spurred her to consider something shocking. All she wants is one uncomplicated night with one of her best friends, no strings attached. But how can she choose?

Except there’s another problem. Tristan and Matt are already involved sexually with each other, much to Cait’s shock. And both men have long harbored feelings for Cait that go way beyond friendship. When they whisk her away for her birthday to a cabin in the mountains, she discovers the extent of their lust—and her own. The gift they give her is one she'll never forget.

But when the weekend's over, will she retreat to the safety of the status quo, if they'll even let her, or will she finally embrace what she's secretly craved for so long?

JoAnna said...

Hi Cari!
I actually just got to do something fun that I have been looking forward to. My sister-in-law had preemie twins back in June. They were in the NIC you when we went to visit but I had poison ivy so I would not go back. Then in Oct I had surgery and we went to their baptism barely a week after my surgery so I didn't want to hurt myself by holding them. But this weekend, I got to hold them both. Yay! They are so cute!
Happy holidays!
