From the Author
Unwrapped was written in a flurry of Christmas cheer mixed lightly with panic that it wouldn't be done on time. But I loved Mia and Derrick's story so much, I could hardly wait to get it published. I hope readers will love them as much as I do, and find their own little doses of happiness in these pages.

By Chantilly White
Mia's fallen for some real losers along the way. But because she has a three month dating rule, she's never given them her virginity. But her best friend, Derrick has other plans. He has feelings for Mia and will do anything to get her to realize that he's the only one for her.
Mia is a beautiful woman who doesn't see her own beauty. She's been hurt by the last guy she dated who said she wasn't good enough. She views her body as the enemy, not as desirable. This is so real. I can't tell you how many times I complain about my own body. I don't see myself as sexy and I know many women like me.
Derrick isn't the smoothest talker when it comes to Mia. He doesn't share his feelings because he's afraid he'll push her away. This leads to some of the misunderstandings between them, but it also helps Mia see what he's really like.
Each of the characters are real people with flaws and insecurities. I loved how Ms. White was able to portray people that I could relate to. The sensual build up in this story is amazing. As Derrick sets out to win Mia's heart, the heat gets higher and higher. I don't know how she stood it. I'd have thrown myself at him long before that! But the actual event was worth the wait.
The secondary characters of Jeff and Allison were fun too and provide different comparisons for Mia and Derrick. They are a fearsome foursome and one I'd love to be a part of. Too bad I can't just jump into this book!
Ms. White has done it again. I was thoroughly entranced and spent probably a bit too much time reading when I should have been getting ready to go on holiday. Ms. White builds the romance on the firm foundation of friendship so skillfully that I couldn't put the book down. She shows us Derrick's emotions so completely that we can feel his elation and pain. Mia's confusion and anxiety comes through in the beginning as does her budding confidence as the story progresses.
Ms. White has certainly proven that love can take us anywhere with her books - from the quiet and solemn library to the uncertainty of war to the inner workings of a marriage on the rocks and now to the beaches and sunshine of California. I can't wait to see where she takes us next!
This belated holiday gift from her was well worth the wait. "Unwrapped" is a great story of true friendship, true passion and true love. Mia is not sure that love really does exist, given what she saw growing up of her mother's flighty history with relationships. She's decided that saving herself for that one person who is reliable enough to stick with her at least for 3 months should be a win-win situation for them both. But she's having a tough time finding the right person. When her latest relationship ends, Mia turns to her best friends for support. But everything changes when she makes a proposition to one of them, Derrick. Unbeknownst to Mia, Derrick has been secretly in love with her for eight long years, all the while afraid to risk their special friendship by telling her. But when Mia makes her proposal to him, Derrick has hope that he might be able to make her feel the same.
What unfolds is a tale to touch your heart, show you that it's never too late to find happiness and that sometimes it's right under your nose.
Alright, Ms. White, what do you in store for us next and how soon do I get it? I'm waiting . . .
trying to help her rediscover herself. Then Mia makes a proposition to her
friend Derrick and he takes her up on it, using Mia's Three Month Rule - if
by the end of three months they wish to break it off. Can Derrick make her
fall in love with him in the end? Worth a read.
