"Another page turner--I couldn't put it down!" - Lori Foster, New York Times bestselling author
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…

Wrapped in You
If you want romance without the college kids, sports/athletes, paranormal, witchcraft etc, Wrapped in You is a great book. If you like Jill Shalvis, Nora Roberts, and Jude Deveraux, you will enjoy Jules Bennett!
So, what did I enjoy about Wrapped in you? It has a good plot with lots going on. There is the story about what happened to Liam, Zack, and Sophie as teenagers. It profoundly changed each of them in different ways, both physical and mental. The story starts off years after the incident and you aren’t told right away what happened, but you can make a pretty good educated guess. Zack carries a TON of guilt and is hell bent on punishing himself for eternity. Sophie just wants Zack to love her. She fights for him so much!
What didn’t work for me was the length of the will they/won’t they back and forth. Its almost the entire book! Zack is super angsty and after awhile I wanted to punch him and tell Sophie to move on! She didn’t deserve to be his emotional punching bag. He can’t stand what he did to her but he also won’t walk away so she is in her own kind of torture. It got frustrating to read after awhile.
