After catching her boyfriend cheating two weeks before Christmas, Brinn is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. So when she looks into the eyes of a last-minute shopper after closing on Christmas Eve, she’s sarcastic rather than sympathetic. But Brinn is ever the good girl and her conscience wins out. She offers the handsome stranger ten minutes to select a gift and ends up with a present of her own—a date. On Christmas Eve.
Davis hates Christmas. Especially this year, since a neighborhood heist liberated him of his hard-earned belongings and the few gifts he’d purchased. But the robbery led him to a cute store manager with a sense of humor, smokin’ body and no plans for the evening. Mistletoe might be in order after all.
Their Christmas Eve date is like gift-wrapped, sexy satisfaction. But the best gifts keep on giving, and one naughty night may not be enough—for either of them.

About the Author
I’m a small town girl with some big city experience, and happiest living somewhere in between.
As a child, I tried endlessly to convince my parents that I needed a pet ostrich to ride to the beach. By age ten, I’d drawn up plans and a budget to build a bathroom in my bedroom closet. (It was a tiny closet!) While these campaigns, and numerous others, never came to fruition, my parents always encouraged my creativity and imagination. I studied fashion design in college and worked in that industry much of my life. I switched gears to follow the writing muse, and my first novel released in 2011.
These days, I live a charmed existence. I have two amazing kids, an incredible (and smokin’ hot) husband and the best friends in the world. When I’m not writing the sexy stories that swirl around in my head, you can find me lifting weights at the gym or cuddled up with a book, surrounded by a pack of pets.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If my Nook hadn't run out of power, I would have stayed up all night to finish this book. Steamy sex, sweet romance and two of the most charming characters I've ever read. I loved the ebb and flow of this book, the instant connection between Brinn and Davis and the signature Karla Doyle humor. Davis is so freaking hot and Brinn is completely adorable. The book has a timeline and I found myself rooting for them to figure it out, work and their crap and get to the next level before it was too late. I wanted to jump into the pages and yell at them. In a very short time these two hooked me and I just wanted them to have their happily ever after. If you've never read Karla Doyle, this is a great place to start. I LOVED this book. Don't wait until next Christmas, this is a read all year round kind of love story. I laughed out loud and even cried a couple of times. Another wonderful story from a fabulous author. I highly recommend Gift Wrapped.
5 - "Watching you beat your meat is really hot." Stars! Once again Karla Doyle doesn't disappoint, this time with a sexy tale that whets the reader’s appetite for the forthcoming season, as well as leaving a damp patch elsewhere! Just sayin' It is no secret that I am a massive fan of this authors work, so having her release something of a Christmassy nature makes me happy as it means I can go back and read it year after year. Brinn and Davis are the kind of characters that you can’t help but like - down to earth, pretty regular, and within the realms of believability. This isn’t a book full of angst and over the top drama, it is a well thought out, brilliantly verbal, emotional and perfectly written romance story for someone looking to add a little Christmas magic and sparkle to their regular reading list. ”I’m not free,” … “But I accept manual, oral and penetrative forms of payment.” The story starts at Christmas and ends at Christmas (2 different ones) but a whole lot happens in-between. I think this is where Karla’s skill really shines, as nothing feels rushed, the characters and the plot are fully developed and the secondary characters are relevant and well integrated into the storyline as a whole. ”I guess I didn’t need to worry about your reloading time after all.” Gift Wrapped is a really enjoyable easy going read, if you are looking for a little something to get you in the Christmas spirit and have a few giggles at, with plenty of hot and dirty sexy-times, and a cute couple, you really need look no further. Next Christmas maybe she'd have a Santa to call her own. For good. ARC generously provided by the author in exchange for the above honest review.
