About MINE FOR THE WEEK (Wild Love Series #2):
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.
Are they really going to walk away from this kind of connection…this passion? Or can a week turn into a lifetime?

Sophie reached for the key in the ignition.
His body blocked the sunlight. “Move over.”
Tearing off his sunglasses, he stuck his face into the Jeep, forcing her to lean back. “Move over. I’m getting in.”
Struck by all that masculinity, the scent of sun-warmed cotton, soap from his shower, and whatever shampoo he’d used, it took her a moment to answer. He was a formidable presence, and the energy rolling off him overwhelmed her. “You can teach me from the passenger seat.”
“I’m not going to teach you. I’m driving you.”
“You can’t drive me to the other side of the island.”
“Because you’re going to get twenty minutes down the road, stall out, and then what? You’ll be stuck on the road in the middle of nowhere by yourself.”
The way he looked at her made her lose her train of thought. “Why are you staring at my mouth?”
His jaw clamped shut. “Because I freaking love your mouth. I can’t stop kissing it, remember?”
Heat rushed up her neck, burning her cheeks. “Yes, I remember. That was very rude of you to bring it up.”
His arms reached over his head, hands clutching the roll-over bar of the Jeep. “Move over, Soph.”
“This isn’t a good idea.”
“I’m not coming back until tomorrow.”
His nostrils flared, but he remained silent.
“And you don’t want to see the volcano.”
“I’m not missing the waterfall with magical properties.” She gave him a meaningful look.
“No.” His lips twitched. “I wouldn’t expect you to.”
When she didn’t budge, he finally looked her right in the eyes and gave her the most searing look she’d ever seen. The heat, the intensity, ignited a flurry of explosions in her chest. Holding her gaze, he said, “I think you know I’m going with you.”
(Can be cut here if too long)
She may have been a lot of things, but she wasn’t a game player. And she loved the idea that he wanted to be with her. “Okay, but just to put it out there, I don’t need you to drive me. If I really can’t drive this car, I’ll find someone to drive me. The car services might be busy because of the festival, but I’m willing to pay whatever they ask. I don’t need to be rescued.”
“No, but I do.” He sighed. “Are you going to move over or do I have to pick you up and toss you into the passenger seat?”
Why did that idea send a thrill shooting down her spine?
He looked at her. And his restrained expression drew a smile to her lips. “One…two…”
“As hot as it sounds to be manhandled, I’d probably just wind up with a gearshift in my butt, so I’m going to pass. Plus, I just can’t see myself coming out looking all that attractive sprawled over the seat.” She opened the door, jumped out of the Jeep, and then stood before him. “You know this probably isn’t a good idea, right?”
The intensity of his gaze thrilled her. “Buckle up.”
