Review: Mine for the Week by Erika Kelly (Wild Love #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

Mine for the Week is the second novel in Erika Kelly's Wild Love series. Ryan O'Donnell and Sophie Valentine lead different lives, but they both know what pressure feels like, especially when it involves not wanting to disappoint their respective families. Ryan's at the cusp of a promising major league career, what with his being the top collegiate shortstop around, but the stress of expectation is getting to him. On the other hand, Sophie's siblings want to sell off their family legacy, Crazy Hearts, and if she had her way, it would remain within the family. All they wanted was one week to take a break from their respective realities--one week to not have to be saddled with the heavy weight of responsibility on their shoulders. So a trip to Santa Grenada during spring break with their groups of friends may be exactly what these two need. A few days to kick back and let loose--not having to think or feel more than what's required of them. Then their paths cross and the week begins to look even more interesting. It's just one week of indulging in one another, but as the days quickly pass, one week begins to feel like it isn't enough.

I really liked the series starter, Mine for Now, when I read it last year, so I was looking forward to the reading more from both the author and the series. Admittedly, it took me a tad longer to feel connected to the main characters here, as if I needed more time to really see that there was a chemistry between Ryan and Sophie and that they were worth me becoming invested in their story. I liked Ryan, but it was Sophie that I had a disconnect with. It took about halfway through the book for me to fully feel as if I could relax and simply enjoy what was happening. Stories like these--the kind that has a couple meeting in some secluded or faraway place, making an agreement to be together for the time that they're away from their real lives, and then going their separate ways afterwards but becoming unable to move on--always end up one way, so I look for something different. I did like seeing Nicole O'Donnell and Dylan McCaffrey from Mine for Now again, and there were definitely a number of supporting characters that caught my interest. Mine for the Week was okay, but it wasn't as great as its predecessor. 3.5 stars. ♥
