ONE WEEK is all it will take…
A week in Las Vegas and she will feel better about herself. At least that is what Dacotah Miller is hoping will be the case.
Left at the alter, heart broken and ashamed, Dacotah takes the opportunity offered by her girlfriends – the chance to get away. The opportunity to escape her mundane life in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.
But what Dacotah doesn’t know is that lurking in Las Vegas is the chance of a lifetime, a dream come true, in the form of Derek Hunter.
Derek, in town on business, can’t seem to focus on his purpose once Dacotah walks into his field of vision. She beautiful and just what he needs to cure his desire for a good woman in his bed. Only she presents a challenge to him unlike anything he’s ever experienced before.
Dacotah will be wrapped up in a whirlwind of unexpected events that will force her to make a decision, life changing choice. Does she get on the plane back to boring Wisconsin and wonder what might have been? Or will she step on board a private jet that promises to take her on a journey she will never forget?
One Week by Zoey Derrick was a fast read for me, not fast because it was short but, because I couldn’t put the dang thing down until I finished. This story sucked me in from the beginning.
“Cotah, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Rachel places her hands on my shoulders, like she is ready to shake some common sense into me.
There are many aspects I can take from this story, so I will stick with Dacotah. Dacotah is a woman who has had the carpet ripped out from under her when she finds out her fiancee has been cheating on her. She doesn’t know what to do or where to go. She simply exists. When her friends have had enough of her sulking they whisk her away for a week in Vegas. They want to get her away just to blow off some steam and forget about the man that broke her heart. What Dacotah wasn’t expecting was to have everything she has ever known brought in to question when she meets Derek.
Derek offers Dacotah one week. He wants her to be his for one week and they simply walk away. Simple enough right? Wrong! Dacotah begins to realize that Derek relieves her of her inhibitions, makes her lose control and makes her feel for the first time in almost her whole life. He makes her realize that the life she thought she was living was a lie. Her previous relationship with Jason was a joke. She has spent most of her relationship with Jason simply existing and she can’t help but want more from Derek. For once she feels alive but, the thing that she questions is how does Derek feel about her. Of course her insecurities come from and center.
This story, to me, was more then just a romance novel about a girl who finds her dreams in Vegas, but about a girl who finally realizes what life is about. There is more to the world then working. There is a life outside of the 9 to 5.
I absolutely loved this story. I was also excited to see two of my favorite characters make an appearance in this novel. I have read Zoey Derrick from her first novel Finding Love’s Wings and every novel after that. Zoey just keeps getting better. She pushes herself and I love seeing her becoming such a brilliant writer.
If you want a story that plays with your emotions and makes you wonder what if, this is it.
