I really enjoyed this story, what better way to get over a cheating d-bag ex than a fun-filled week in Vegas with your best friends? And if you happen to catch the eye of seriously hot man-candy, that just makes better. And when said man-candy makes you an offer you can't refuse, just go for it. And during your time with man-candy you learn he's a billionaire? You literally hit the jackpot.

This had a Pretty Woman-ish type vibe in the story (minus the h

My Review:

This story was close to my perfect storm. An Adult Contemporary Romance, HEA, and lots of hot sizzling love scenes. Swoon. I didn’t want to put my kindle down for long so finished the story over 2 days, despite frequent annoying interruptions such as employment, sleep, spousal

A truly beautiful and sensual journey.

Zoey Derrick hits the mark with the truly beautiful and sensual journey of Dakota and Derrick.
The characters are written with such love and passion that you can't help but be pulled into their personal struggles and their overwhelming emotional situations.
A lovely way to gain some insights into these characters who also appear in Zoey Derricks 69 Bottles series.

I found this book to be a delightful read, with must passion, caring, searching, and needing with a wonderful story and plot. I did not find the BDSM to be over powering like some novels are, I found it to be perfect. At first I thought oh great here we go with the FSOG but that was not the case at all. I loved the fact that Derek leaders her into BDSM and it is not the main part of the story. If fact you are well into the story before that becomes a factor.

This book was given to me for my honest review

“You are the wind beneath my wings” an interesting saying and song by one of the greatest. As we can look deeper into the quote and song it can pertain to our everyday life finding the one that completes us that makes us a whole without compromise or reservation, the one that will have our love for eternity if just given the chance to let our wings fly with each. The one person on this earth that fits just right without even trying, lo

I think this was close to getting a 3-star rating from me, but there was just too much that bugged me. I skimmed over several sex scenes because the middle of the book is basically: Screw, sleep, screw, shower, repeat. At least that's how it felt to me.

The fact that this was a long-ish BBW was the selling point for me. I like over-weight heroines and there are so many BBW's out there that are serialized, or just short erotic novellas, and I'm not interested in that. I like tales of love and sex

One Week, where do I even start? Zoey Derrick does it again, she hooks you right from the start. This is definitely different than her other books but is a fabulous change. One Week is very heavy on the hot romance BDSM but still tastefully Zoey Derrick. I love the story line, one week in Vegas with the girlfriends to have fun and forget a good for nothing, chea

Another Winner

I read this book out of order - after reading all of the 69 Bottles books that are currently out - but for me, this wasn't an issue. Sure, by doing so I already knew a bit about Derek and Dacotah, but it wasn't enough to spoil their story for me. In fact, now that I've read this, I want to know even more about them and how they got from where the are at the end of this book to where they are when Dex and Raine meet up with them.

I could tell that this book was written before some of

This is a stand-alone novel, but there are characters from the Love’s Wings series who make an appearance.

This is a little bit of FSOG meets reality. Either Ms. Derrick is in the scene or she knows people who have talked openly to her, because this is a lot closer to how the lifestyle is lived than

One Week started off great for me. I felt so bad for Dacotah and what she'd been through. I admired her for handling things the way she did, especially when the knocking on her door started. I was really rooting for her to get what she was looking for in Vegas. A little of a quarter of the way into the book, my interest started to wane and I'll try to explain why without giving too much away.

I enjoyed the chemistry between Dacotah and Derek. It was hot, they were hot. I wasn't a huge fan of the

I have to say first off, if you don't like to read about sex or it makes you uncomfortable, then this is NOT the book for you!!

For the rest of us however, strap your self in for one hell of a sexy ride with this one.
For many woman, having a rich powerful man proposition you for one week of no strings attached fun, all expenses paid would be a dream come true.
What Cotah gets however is the biggest journey of self discovery, one she never could have dreamed of and one she never

I absolutely LOVED this book!

Zoey did, in my opinion, a PERFECT job of developing the relationship between Dacotah and Derek. I don't want to spoil anything, but from the moment they laid eyes on each other, the story just kept getting better.

They interacted with each other A LOT, which I prefer in these stories. In other words, there wasn't a lot of story where he or she was off doing something else without the other, rather the majority of the story was about THEM, together.

Nextly, talk about
One Week by Zoey Derrick was just an OK ready for me. It didn't stir much emotion or much angst out of me at all, but I understand where the author was going with it. The female lead, Dacotah, wasn't a strong enough lead for me. Her insecurities took over way too many times, and I felt her character was lacking any type of depth. Some topics were way too repetitive and there was quite a bit of unnecessary information put in throughout the story. The premise was a little too 50 Shades, and I get ...more

Ok, to start off I really liked this story but there's just a couple of things about it that kinda bugged me a little. First thing, it practically screams another book in places, second thing is that it just seemed lacking in places. The start of the book is absolutely brilliant, you can really sink your teeth in to it, you know all girls holiday to Vegas, you think what fun can be had. Then Dacohta meets the very mysterious "Orion". Then the fun really begins, or so I thought. He's there one se ...more

This is the story of Dacotah, who goes to Vegas with her friends and meets Orion/Derek and they begin a week long relationship that may turn into something more.

The romance side of this was surprisingly strong and it's easy to understand what's going on with both of them, despite the fact that this is mainly told from one POV (until the end), how the characters feel (although I'm still not sure how these characters truly connect to each other).

There are elements of BDSM in this: bondage, sensor

Dacotah and Derick. Great beginning and then it kind of lost me. Dacotah's insecurities were killing me, among a few other things. I really need my main character to be confident and let the drama around her unfold, not she being the drama. As for Derick, I felt I didn't know him. Tristan and Cami from the author's previous book made a welcome appearance.

It's chalked full of sex including some FSOG similarities. I LOVED the airport scene......but wait, what??!!! Sooooo not fair! You have to read

Dacotah finds her fiancee having sex with a friend of hers and decides to head to Vegas with her girlfriends to let loose. She meets Derek and falls head over heels for this delicious man. Derek sweeps her off her feet and asks for a week to spend time with her. They are scorching hot together and can't imagine being without each other. When given the opportunity to have more than a week with him, Cotah struggles with doubt, but gives in to the adventure of him.

I loved Cotah and Derek together.

Dacotah and Hunter will get you hot and bothered as they tell their story. Dacotah decides she needs a break the past few months have really sucked. She and her friends head to Las Vegas in hopes of helping her forget, she never expected a sexy man to help her forget.
Hunter offers Dacotah an indecent proposal and she accepts, but can they keep their feelings out of their agreement?

Read to find out.

Bonus... guest appearance from Tristian and Cami from the Finding Love's Wings novels.

Loved it,loved one week

Even though it was a lot like Pretty woman, in some respects,being a size 16 myself, tho not always,I can relate to Cota's characters insecurity about her body. Very refreshing to read. At least Hunter wasn't abused as a child. I enjoyed the story, and the insertion of some of my favorite people from her other books. Blake and Miranda were a nice touch also. Love your books, Zoey

I enjoyed reading this book. The story was good and great writing. Dacotah and Derek were hot together but I felt the BDSM came on too fast and they didnt get a chance to discuss it first even though she seemed submissive to him right away. Would love to read more about her friends and see if they can find the one too

I loved One Week. From start to finish you want to know what is going to happen. I found myself rooting for Cotah and yet wanting to hold her hand as she went on this jourey. I prayed it wouldn't end and yet.... well I don't want to spoil it. Zoey did it again with this book. I hope she writes another one in this series because this is a must buy....
