All Wrapped Up is Book Two in The List Series
Make sure you get Birthday Wishes Book One in The List Series also!


Mari and Luca continue to work through their list of sexual fantasies in All Wrapped Up, Book Two in The List Series. They've abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and, for the most part, Mari's learning to be okay with it. She definitely likes Luca's strings (and whatever else he might use to restrain her), but she's not sure she's ready to take the next step in their relationship. Luca, sweet, strong, commanding Luca, insists that it's time to move in together. Mari insists it's time to relax and enjoy what they share without complicating things.

With every moment they spend together, Luca shows Mari how good they could be together. Will Mari run away from her emotions, or does Luca have her all wrapped up?

All Wrapped Up is a novella length erotic romance and contains mature adult themes, including graphic and explicit sex.


     "Stop thinking about sex." Rachel beaned me with another grape. I set this one on my napkin just in case I needed to throw it back at her at some point.

     "Sorry." I shrugged like I wasn't sorry at all. "Luca has that effect."

     "Yeah, yeah, yeah." Rachel glared at me. "Show a little respect for those of us who aren't dating a sex god."

     "My offer still stands." One night, after far too much single malt whiskey, I'd asked Rachel if she'd like to join Luca and me some time. After listening to her complain about how awful her latest lover was, I just couldn't handle it any more. The poor girl deserved a decent orgasm. And a threesome was still on our list of things to try.

     "You don't mean that." Rachel swallowed half her glass of wine in one go and her face flared red. I smirked.

     "Sure I do."

     Rachel stared at me levelly. "You're drunk."

     I really wasn't. Four glasses was enough to make me giggly, but not drunk. "No, but even if I was it wouldn't change anything."

     "You'd really do that? Let Luca fuck someone else?" Her face screwed up with this combination of intrigue and horror. Apparently she hadn't believed me when I told her all the things that were on our list.

     I considered my answer. Would I let Luca fuck whoever he wanted, whenever he wanted? Fuck no. I hadn't signed on for an open relationship. And he was far too loyal to even think about cheating on me. "Within reason, yes." I took a deliberate sip of wine, holding Rachel's gaze the entire time. "If I were there to watch, maybe participate, it would be hot."

     "You're serious?" Rachel picked up her wine glass, but it was empty. So was the bottle. She stared into the glass for a moment with an intense look on her face, then set it back on the table.

     "Of course." I signaled to the waiter for a new bottle. Rachel had decided to join the drinking so I could replace the wine without feeling like a total lush.

     "You really are a kinky bitch, aren't you?"

     I laughed. "You have no idea."

     "So how would that work?" Rachel stared at the wall over my shoulder rather than looking at me.

     "You want details?" This whole conversation cracked me up. Rachel looked ready to pass out at any moment.

     Rachel fanned her face with her napkin. "No! I mean where would we do it? When? That kind of thing."

     The waiter arrived with the new bottle of wine and filled both our glasses. Rachel drank hers down and held it out for him to refill. I sipped and watched her while trying not to laugh. Complete role reversal from earlier.

     I waited for the waiter to leave before I responded. "Where? A hotel. You can pick which one. When? We could probably do it this weekend if you want. Let me ask Luca."

     I picked up my phone carefully. I expected her to knock it out of my hand to stop me from actually texting Luca. Her face grew increasingly red, but she didn't move. I typed out a quick message while she watched with wide eyes.

     Up for some company this weekend? Rachel wants to join us.

     I showed the screen to Rachel before I hit send. She swallowed and nodded, her movements tight, but certain. I sent the message.

     "Jesus." Rachel drank more wine.

     "You know, you don't have to do this." I'd been teasing her when I brought it up, but the idea of seeing Luca with Rachel stirred excitement low in my belly. This would be a lot of fun. Providing Rachel didn't faint dead away.

     "I know."

     Luca responded.

     Join us for dinner? Or...

     I smiled. Even though we'd talked about including other people, we'd both been reluctant to follow through. After the night he brought Richard to meet me, Luca hadn't wanted to push the issue. And I had simply been enjoying him.

     We could have dinner first. Then I'd like you to fuck her while I watch.

     I hit send and imagined Luca going instantly hard when he read my message. He was incredibly responsive to suggestion.

     Rachel watched, but didn't ask what he said. Luca replied immediately.

     The new toys can wait. I'll book a room.

     I showed Rachel the screen. "Should I tell him to do it?"

     Rachel hesitated, took a long drink of wine, then nodded slowly. "Yeah, I think so."

     I debated kissing Rachel then. It was total impulse and would have freaked her out even more, so I didn't do it. Instead I asked Luca to let me know which hotel after he'd made the reservation. This wasn't the outcome I'd expected from the evening, but I wasn't about to complain. The stress I'd felt for weeks about Luca's request to live together gave way to excitement.

     "We're going to have so much fun." I toasted Rachel. For the first time all night I really tasted the wine on my tongue. It was crisp and clear and full of promise.

     Instead of dreading the weekend, now I couldn't wait for it to arrive.

Playlist: (Randomness)

1. Follow the Leader, Wisin & Yandel, Ft. Jennifer Lopez
    At one point, Luca and Mari discuss seeing Wisin & Yandel live, so I had to include one of their songs on the playlist. I love this one because it's super high energy and fun.

2. The Truth About Love, P!nk
    Another song about how inconvenient and sticky and messy love is. And whether you want it or not, it is. And it's not always pretty or nice or anything remotely close to nice. But then again, it is.

3. If I had You, Adam Lambert
    The balance between love and money. Answered in Technicolor. With circus acts.

4. Run, Matt Nathanson, ft. Sugarland
    Inescapable, undeniable passionate love.

5. We Found Love, Rihanna, ft. Calvin Harris
     I think this is the one sweet love song Rihanna ever recorded. Okay, not really. But pretty close.
