He’s made her an offer she can’t refuse…
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…

For Seven Nights Only is book two in author Sarah Ballance’s Chase Brothers series for Entangled Lovestruck and like the first book, this one is utterly engaging, seriously fun, and laugh out loud funny. Kelsie and Sawyer had enough challenge and tension between them to spark a fire, but they had just as much heart and heat.
From the way they met to the way they continued to spend time together, Kelsie and Sawyer were fun and sigh worthy. They had so many amazing moments together that I absolutely loved, but their first kiss is a standout moment for me because I just loved everything about it. It might be my favorite moment in the book, though there were so many others to choose from it’s hard to say for sure.
Sawyer is one of those men that both wants love and shies away from it. He’s afraid to let himself get attached out of fear it won’t last, but Kelsie is an unexpected enigma that not only knocks him on his ass but also makes him want to stand right back up and hold on tight. And holy moley, but he had some hot, wicked things to say to Kelsie. I loved the contradictions to his character so much. They just fit his personality so well and made him the perfect counterpoint to Kelsie because Kelsie is a one of kind type of woman. Sure, the chick kind of sucks at the whole dating thing, mostly because she’s trying to be someone she isn’t, but she’s got this feisty, spunky vibe beneath the surface that makes her a truly unique and compelling character. I loved her a lot and I adored the way she gave arrogant but honest Sawyer a run for his money.
If you love a good enemies to lovers, fish out of water type story, For Seven Nights Only is an excellent book to pick up. Not only is it highly entertaining and extremely funny, but it’s also got a beautiful love story between two amazing, multi-faceted characters. I loved it so much.
Final Thoughts: For Seven Nights Only is the perfect blend of fun, heart, and heat. It’s a book you’ll want to read and then reread again.
Rating: 5 Stars
Sarah and her husband of what he calls “many long, long years” live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep. She never dreamed of becoming an author, but as a homeschooling mom, she often jokes she writes fiction because if she wants anyone to listen to her, she has to make them up. (As it turns out, her characters aren’t much better than the kids). When not buried under piles of laundry, she may be found adrift in the Atlantic (preferably on a boat) or seeking that ever-elusive perfect writing spot where not even the kids can find her.
She loves creating unforgettable stories while putting her characters through an unkind amount of torture—a hobby that has nothing to do with living with six children. (Really.) Though she adores nail-biting mystery and edge-of-your-seat thrillers, Sarah writes in many genres including contemporary and ghostly paranormal romance.
