Publication Date: October 3, 2017
Genre: New Adult Romance/ Contemporary Romance
From the award-winning author of MINE FOR NOW comes the next sizzling story in her Wild Love series, about a chance meeting that changes the course of two people’s lives.
As the top collegiate shortstop in the country, Ryan O’Donnell’s life is about discipline and training. But a growing restlessness causes him to bail on his baseball team over spring break to join his buddies at an exclusive singles resort. He just needs a few days to escape his life, and then he’ll get right back on track. But not twenty minutes after he arrives he meets HER, and the world as he knows it changes irrevocably. It should only be a hookup—that’s what spring break’s all about—but one taste of this sexy, vibrant woman isn’t enough. He has to have her. Even if it’s only for a week.
Sophie Valentine—yes, that Valentine—just found out her siblings want to sell off Crazy Hearts—the Peeps of the Valentine’s Day world. Being the youngest by eight years, she’s used to feeling left out, but selling off her family’s legacy without talking to her first? Not gonna happen. Upset, she takes off with her friends on their spring break vacation. She only wanted an escape—she never imagined meeting HIM. He’s smoking hot and intensely protective of her—and she loves it. But he’s about to start a major league baseball career, and she’s launching a battle to keep the family company. They have no future. It’s just…she’s never felt this way for anyone before.
“What’re you thinking about?” she asked.
His attention remained focused on the road. “I’m not.”
“You’re not thinking?”
“Who doesn’t think? You’re driving along, but you’re not thinking?”
“Nope. I’m just enjoying being with you.”
Warmth flooded her. She looked away from him, letting it spread through her, thick and sweet as caramel. He’d seemed at peace when they’d first started out and she’d told him about the island, the superstitions. She’d even told him about her conversation with her sister. He’d gotten angry at Abby’s attitude, and she’d appreciated his support.
Up ahead she noticed a stand of trees. “Here we go. It’s getting more wooded. We’re close.” She read the information she’d printed out. “Pretty soon we’re going to see a big rock with some graffiti on it, and then we enter a forest.” She leaned into him, their arms brushing, as she reached for the control panel.
“What’re you doing?”
“Resetting the odometer.” She looked for the button. “The path’s exactly two point four miles from the rock.”
He batted her hand away, leaned forward, and hit the button.
“Awesome. I can’t wait.” She gestured to his lap. “You can go in your shorts.”
“Oh, you have to go in. The water has magical properties.”
“So you said.”
“You don’t believe in it?”
He shrugged. “I believe telling people water has magical properties is a great way to get tourists to come out here and spend money. Do they sell it in bottles in roadside kiosks?”
“Well, hello to the itty bitty cynic who lives inside you. Does he come out often? I don’t think I’ve met him before.”
He slowly leveled her a look that said he wasn’t amused.
So she met his with one of her own. “This isn’t a tourist attraction. The islanders actually believe in it.”
“And a tourist guide book told you that?”
“I didn’t buy a tourist guide book.”
“You learned it from an islander?”
“I got it from the Internet.”
And then that serious face blew wide open with laughter. “Okay then.” And that right there was the man she’d fallen for.
And, yep, no doubt about it. She’d fallen for this complicated, moody, sexy man. “You can fester in your cynicism. I choose to believe in magical properties.”
“And what do you hope to get from the magic?”
She quickly turned away from him. “I don’t know.”
“Wait, did you just blush? Are you…embarrassed?”
“Just drive the freaking car. I’m not embarrassed.”
He took his foot off the accelerator, shifting gears. “Not until you tell me what you want the magic for.”
She shoved his thigh. “God, Ryan. I want to eat whatever I want and not gain weight. I want to meet the man of my dreams and drive off into the sunset in a convertible. I want to find my passion and earn a living out of it. What does anyone want?”
And from his very intense expression she had a strong feeling he wanted her.
I fell in love with Ryan! Loved this book! MINE FOR A WEEK is the second book in Erika Kelly’s Wild Love Series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but I usually like to read a series in order and the first book, MINE FOR NOW, is great too so I would recommend reading it in order. The Wild Love series a new adult romance series that features one of the O’Donnell siblings in each book. MINE FOR THE WEEK is a great mix of passion, emotion and humor. Ryan and Sophie’s chemistry heated up the pages and I just really enjoyed their story. Erika Kelly always delivers a great love story that makes you feel good. I’ve been hooked on her books since I read her first book, YOU REALLY GOT ME, from her Rock Star Romance series. Erika Kelly is on my must buy list and I recommend her to readers who are looking for a feel good romance.
