Kelsie Reed is over bad luck and bad men. Newly dumped, she’s now the pathetically single maid of honor in her sister’s wedding—and her ex is the best man. Her bad luck continues when a plumbing meltdown in her apartment sends her sexy neighbor running to her rescue. He’s got “serial dater” written all over him, which is unfortunate because the man is hot.
Sawyer Chase loves women, but settling down? He’ll leave that to his brothers. But when Kelsie confesses she’s a dating disaster and is about to become the laughing stock of her family wedding, Sawyer takes control. He’s got one week to teach her how to land the man of her dreams, and he’ll do it on her terms: no touching, no kissing, and definitely nothing more.
But some rules need to be broken, especially when, for once, there’s something on the line worth fighting for…

This is a cute, sexy, fun, opposites-attract read that pitches a serial dating guy against a woman who can’t seem to find a date at all. After an exploding pipe brings Sawyer and Kelsie into close contact, the stage is set for plenty of fun, misunderstandings, sexy shenanigans and stubborn clinging to past issues and refusals to accept that people can and do change.
It’s all really light and fluffy and enjoyable, with Sawyer teaching Kelsie how to be more confident – without ever wanting to change her, thank goodness – while Kelsie slowly teaches Sawyer that settling down won’t actually kill him. Not that either of them realise that’s what she’s doing, since Sawyer is too scared to fall in love, while Kelsie doesn’t trust him to stay interested in her beyond the next week. They’re cute together when they’re out, and their chemistry is scorching, even if there were times when I wanted to bang their heads together to stop them being so foolish. Especially when it was so obvious to each of them that the other wanted more.
If you’re looking for something easy and fun, with plenty of heat and a pretty cute ending, then this should definitely fit the bill. It’s neither surprising nor complicated, but as an escape it will hopefully make you smile. I look forward to seeing which of the younger Chase brothers is up next.
For Seven Nights Only is out January 18th!
