    2. I still can't believe ALL WRAPPED UP is the final book in the Pine Mountain series. I have come to love all of the towns people and have giggled and swooned along with them all. I had never read Kimberly Kincaid before this series but now I'm excited to find her older books and am really looking forward to a new series. Revisiting Pine Mountain was like going home for me. Everyone knows everyone else and they are all in your business just like any other small town. The sexual tension between Nic [...]

    3. Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4.5 starsI enjoy reading new to me authors especially those that have been recommended by other author's whose work I love or by friends and other reviewers whose judgment I trust so when an author friend recommended All Wrapped Up by Kimberly Kincaid, I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. A reluctant hero, a heroine out for a story, a reunion after seven years, secrets, and some delightfully hot sexy scenes all rolled in to one outstanding [...]

    4. Holy, Freaking, Smoke!!!!!Kimberly's books keep getting better and better and just when you think you can't have another "HERO", along comes Nick Brennan. He grabbed my attention in the last book and then he grabbed it right at the beginning of All Wrapped Up and never let go. 2 1/2 years ago something happened at a fire, Brennan lost his career and his best friend. Ava walked away from the Nick she knew because she was afraid and now here she is again, face-to-face with him. She's a reporter an [...]

    7. ✦Review: ALL WRAPPED UP: A Pine Mountain Novel by Kimberly Kincaid wp/p3d0RZ-35Y Publication Date: September 29, 2015Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ DonnaRated: 5 StarsREVIEW:I always enjoy Pine Mountain and I am excited about the new turn it is taking. I didn’t quite warm up to Ava at first but I learned to trust her right along with Nick and that made it all part of the story… in more ways than one. The book revolved around Brennan’s journey to resolve major issues from his past with [...]

    8. In classic Kimberly Kincaid style, with this story she has made me fall completely head over heels in love with Nick Brennan! Throughout the series, we've known that Nick had a past he kept to himself, and now in this book we get to know the real man and the events in his life that have formed him. When a town event throws him into the spotlight as a hero, the last person he expects to show up looking for the story is Ava Mancuso. The only woman he's ever really loved but who simply disappeared [...]

    9. 4.5 starsAll Wrapped Up was such a good read.The storyline was entertaining, the characters very likable and relatable.I liked both Ava and Nick, their story touched my heart and I enjoyed watching them come together and learn to put past differences behind them to love each other unconditionally.This was an emotional and heartfelt romance with a well written storyline that will pull at your heartstrings.I highly recommend this book.Thank you Kensington Books via NetGalley for the advance copy.

    10. Kincaid is truly one of my favorite authors and this book was bittersweet. I am sad this series is ending but Kincaid ended it with a bang! Ava and Nick were an outstanding couple. Although they had a past they made the future brighter once they got passed everything that happened. The writing was great, the storyline interesting and the characters are swoon worthy especially Nick. I can't wait for new series because I already know it's going to be fan freaking tastic!

    11. It’s time to say a goodbye to our friends in Pine Mountain with the last book in the series and after reading it (okay devouring it) I can say with surety that Kimberly Kincaid has given us a book that not only fits perfectly with the others, but just may be my favourite of them all. Cue the sobs as I pack my imaginary bag in preparation of leaving Pine Mountain. I have threatened after every book to move there if it was real and it’s no different this time. Though it’s sad to see a series [...]

    12. In All Wrapped Up by Kimberly Kincaid, two lonely people running from their past reluctantly find heat with each otherbut will it last?Nick has a past that haunts him, one he keeps hidden and doesn't talk about to anyone. He is physically and emotionally scarred. Pine Mountain is where he's escaped to, and the last place he expects to run into Avaa love from his past, one he's never forgotten. Ava has her own past that haunts her present, her own secrets she holds close. Working as a reporter in [...]

    13. I cannot tell you how bitter sweet it is to write this review for All Wrapped Up (Pine Mountain #5) by Kimberly Kincaid. I have loved this series since book one, loved each and every character, have counted down the days until Brennan's book was releases, and was crying by the end of it all. As with each of the books in this series they can be read as a stand alone no worries about being lost. This is the final book in the Pine Mountain Series. This is Nick and Ava's book.Nick Brennan is the man [...]

    14. Review Copy Provided via NetgalleyIt’s always bittersweet when a favorite series comes to an end and often times it feels like you are saying goodbye to family, and that is how the Pine Mountain series has felt to me. Since the very beginning with her entry in the The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap Anthology (along with Donna Kauffman and Kate Angell), I have felt like I was a member of the resort town of Pine Mountain, through their trials and tribulations, finding love and lust with friends, c [...]

    15. This review is quite bittersweet for me to write as I've loved this series since the first book was published and have completely fallen for Pine Mountain and the people who live and love there and All Wrapped Up is precisely that, the wrapping up of a much loved series but also the start of what will hopefully be a new one I'll love just as much.This story centres around the vaguely mysterious Nick Brennan who we met in Fire Me Up and is the manager of the local bar. He also has a past that he [...]

    16. All Wrapped Up by Kimberly Kincaid is the final book in her Pine Mountain series. For me reading this book was bittersweet. I loved the book but I hated knowing that I wouldn't be going back to Pine Mountain unless I re-read the entire series.Nick Brennan and Ava Mancuso are so well developed characters that I felt like I knew them by the end of the book. I've said in previous reviews that I would love to move to Pine Mountain because I have loved each one of the characters in this series. I thi [...]

    17. Love Pine Mountain and you will tooSweet, TouchingI was given an ARC for an honest reviewWhen Nick Brennnan sees Ava Mancuso after 7 years at the bar he now manages its a shock to his system to say the leastSo much he is feeling at that momentThe minute he finds out why she really is there nothing shocks him morehe puts the brakes on having anything to do with her, because he gets the reason for why she really is therewhat she did to him it was not to be forgotten. He had enough of everything go [...]

    18. Review will be posted atbooks-n-kisses MBER OF HEARTS: 3 3/4As with all Ms. Kincaid’s stories we get a sweet second chance at life romance. In All Wrapped Up we finally get to learn more about the secretive Brennan. Are local bartender has a lot of demons in his past and they are all about to come roaring back into his life. First in the form of his old flame Ava, then in the form of reality and what lead him to Pine Mountain to begin with. This was a sweet quick read. Nick “aka” Brennan i [...]

    19. 2.5 - 3 starsWhile I enjoyed the story, there are a couple of things that prevented me from rating this higher than a 2.5 stars. Mainly the problem is I can't really connect to the characters. Both Ava and Brennan have pretty solid chemistry between them, and I love how they support each other through their issues, but I'm not really jumping up and down the couch in love with them as a couple. Besides that, Ava kind of annoyed me with the way she kept omitting little things from Brennan, and it [...]

    20. It's not long until Christmas and reporter Ava Mancuso needs a big story to save her job at the local paper. She never dreamed she'd stumble across such an exciting one -- hunky civilian makes daring rescue of a small boy from a burning building! When she finally tracks down said hunk, she can hardly believe it's Nick Brennan, her long ago and far away summer fling. Since she left him seven years ago without any explanation, she's pretty sure he's not going to be thrilled to see her, but she tra [...]

    21. I received an ARC of All Wrapped Up as a member of Kimberly Kincaid's Taste Tester groupHonestly, I'm kind of stingy with 5 star reviews, a book really has to grab me and keep me from start to finish. Nick and Ava really did that. The story grabbed me from the first page and many nights I didn't want to put it down - but waged a war with reading and sleeping; then I couldn't wait to get home from work to finish a few more chapters before family life took over. I also kind of hated when the book [...]

    22. So much love for this book! I've loved all of Kincaid's Pine Mountain titles so far, but this one by far the most. Troubled, wounded hero meets (again) troubled, similarly wounded heroine. Lots of healing of all sorts takes place, including xual healing, of course--it is a romance, after all. But it also handles emotional and physical pain and recovery, as well as drug addiction and childhood abuse--and for that matter, though it may not have been an intentional parallel, there's no denying that [...]

    23. Review featured at books-n-kissesThis is the 5th and last in the series. Pine Mountain has been a great place to visit and I am sad to see the series end but I am hoping that the end leads to the next series (hint hint). Now on to the review of this particular book. I enjoyed it. I thought the characters were interesting and they kept me wanting to know more about them and to watch their story unfold. The story was a bit obvious. It has been done a time or two and left no surprise as to what wou [...]

    24. I am so sorry to see this finale to the beloved characters of Pine Mountain. But what better way to wrap up the series than with Nick Brennan and Ava Mancuso. Ava's brother Pete started my love of Kimberly Kincaid with his appearance in the Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap, which gave us a brief introduction to the wonderful location of Pine Mountain. I was so happy to see his reappearance in this book, along with his wonderful wife Lily. Ava and Nick shared a romantic young love one summer seven ye [...]

    25. Kimberly Kincaid does it again! All Wrapped Up is another must read from this author. Nick saves a little boy from a fire and the town makes him out to be a hero. Nick wants nothing to do with that title. He’s hiding something and doesn’t want to call any more attention to himself. Ava is a news reporter who needs to dig up a story and Hero Nick, just might be her chance. Only…these two have a history together, and judging by their attraction to one another, this is one history that needs [...]

    26. "All Wrapped Up" by Kimberly Kincaid is book 5 in the Pine Mountain series. The book is a read alone, or can be read as part of the series. The whole series is excellent so I recommend reading them all.In this story we have Nick Brennan aka "Brennan" and Ava Mancuso. They dated briefly in the past and she left him without saying goodbye. Brennan is now Manager of the Double shot bar, and Ava is a local newspaper reporter. They come in contact when she comes across, quite by accident, a scene of [...]

    27. I won an All Wrapped Up ARC prior to the release date.In All Wrapped Up the finale of the Pine Mountain Novels, Kimberly Kincaid capture's us in a white flame of passion that burns hot and steady for Nick Brennan and Ava Mancuso. Reunited by fate, their pasts and present hold them together, but both converging could tear them apart. Kimberly Kincaid writes a compelling story of passion that is layered in a complex underbelly of pain, both physical and mental caused by Nick's past and Ava's prese [...]

    28. Ava knows how to give her man a compliment, “I’ve got to hand it to you,”Ava said, propping herself up on one elbow to look at him more fully. “You really know how to relax a girl.” Ava is a good woman she always has her man's back no matter what, “I am a smart woman , and I like keeping company with Brennan just fine.” Ava planted her black patent leather heels into the floorboards and stood up as tall as her spine would allow. “What I don’t like are arrogant, life-sized Ken d [...]

    29. This is a great novel of forgiveness. It is well written with characters that are easy to connect with and wonderful supporting characters. Ms. Kincaid's writing style will pull on your emotions and draw you in from the beginning. I am sorry to see the Pine Mountain series end. However, a new series will be starting with a couple characters that had minor roles in this series. I can't wait to see what Ms. Kincaid has planned! ARC received from Kensington Publishing in exchange for an honest revi [...]

    30. Second ChancesBrennan and Ava's story was heartbreaking. The story is mostly about second chances and what happens when you do. Brennan was a firefighter with a secret past Ava was a reporter who also has secrets. They were lovers seven years ago until one day Ava just ups and leaves. When a fire and rescue happens and Brennan is the main person of interest, their lives get thrown back together. Will Ava tell him why she left? Can Brennan tell anyone about his heartbreaking past?
