I'm a huge fan of Erika Kelly. I have been since she released You Really Got Me (if you haven't read it...you should.) And this series is a great second effort. I LOVED the first book (Mine for Now) and this book is a great follow up. As always Erika delivers a great story with characters you can relate to, ups and downs that leave you guessing and romance, so much romance.
Ryan is not your typical hero. He's a good guy, a never let anyone down guy, a do exactly what's ...more
Head, heart and humor collide to upend love as we know it. For Sophie and Ryan instant attraction has changed the course of their lives. Now they have to decide to listen to reason or let their hearts lead the way. Ms. Kelly hit a home run with Mine for the Week. There's a sweetness to the story that gives it an almost ethereal quality and the passionate side gives off that addictive hint of naughty. A MUST HAVE READ! ...more
Erika Kelly is a new to me author and I honestly didn't know what to expect from Mine for the Week. This book follows Ryan O'Donnell and Sophie Valentine. The two of them come from pretty different backgrounds and run each other randomly while on vacation at a single's resort. Their unlikely meeting quickly turns into something more.
I never thought this would be something I'd say but I was happy with the use of insta-love in this story. I'm not one of those people who completely hat ...more

There’s a lot to love about out hero, Ryan O’Donnell. He’s sexy, he’s disciplined, he’s a soon-to-be a professional baseball player. Sadly, he’s also emotionally stunted and entirely too concerned with what others think of him.
The novel opens with Ryan choking at bat while playing ...more
I'm glad I kept reading as things did get better, but I still never fully invested in these two having a happily ever after. Sophia was a much more likable character, Ryan just fell short for me. He would have incredibly sweet moments, but then would take his frustrations out on Sophia and that just didn't sit well.
I picked up Mine for the Week because I liked the idea of a sp ...more
This book was surprisingly enjoyable. The basic story is about baseball athlete Ryan and cookie heiress Sophie who meet at a singles holiday resort. The resort is all about hooking up and having a good time but Ryan and Sophie seem to be the only two people there who are just trying to distance themselves from their lives whilst they work out their problems.
I was surprised because there was no sports really in the story and because ...more

Mine for the Week is my first Wild Love novel, but I’ve been a fan of Erika Kelly’s writing for a while now. I loved her Rock Star Romance series. I wanted to love Mine for the Week, but I didn’t. It ended up being a book that wasn’t well suited to me. That’s not to say it’s a bad book. There were just some things that didn’t jive with me.
I’m going to start with the things I did like. As ...more
All right, you could pretty much read Mine for the Week without reading Mine for Now, because the story focuses on Ryan O'Donnell and Sophie Valentine. I couldn't remember exactly how the two stories were tied together. Don't get me wrong I did read the first book, but it has been a year. Towards the end I remembered how they are tied together. Anyway, back to the story.
We have Ryan who is under extreme pressure and he needs a break, and his friends whisk him away to a ...more
I loved Erika's Rockstar books so I was curious where she'd take this series. This is the second book but I don't feel liked missed anything. I had no idea what to expect really but it flowed really well in the start. While I had moments I had to push through with the angst, I loved how it ended made it come together. It was sweet after the struggle.
Ryan and Sophie had a funny first meeting, that is to say they didn't get on at all. But Ryan being out of sorts helps her ...more

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 ord ...more
