Mine for Now by Erika Kelly: Review and Excerpt
From the award-winning author of the Rock Star Romance books comes a sizzling new series about the O’Donnell siblings. The pull of wild love is irresistible.
She’s had enough drama in her life.
Nicole O’Donnell is more than ready for the fresh start college offers. After a lifetime of trying to help her alcoholic mom and ex-boyfriend get sober, she’s finally learned her lesson: people don’t change. They certainly don’t change for her.
He can never leave his drama behind.
Thanks to his mom’s substance abuse issues, Dylan McCaffrey’s persona non grata in his hometown of Gun Powder, Colorado. So when he scores a free ride to the top university in the country, he’s determined to make something of this fresh start. But his mom has always relied on him, and she’s not handling his absence well at all. If he can just keep up his grades, pay her bills, and come home every break, he might be able to pull off this opportunity.
True love won’t be denied.
No matter how determined they are to steer clear of each other, their combustible connection explodes, especially when Nicole offers Dylan the one thing he can’t bear—hope. Once he has a taste of it—and the irresistible force of her—there’s no going back.
But when he falls too deeply, when he loses sight of his priorities, he might just lose it all.

Blood roared in his ears, and need crashed over him. He cupped her chin. Those warm eyes gazed up at him, those beautiful lips parted. When her tongue flicked out to dampen them, he couldn’t take it anymore. He touched his mouth to hers. So sweet. So incredibly sweet.
He tried to hold back. Tried to get a handle on this thoughts—remind himself why this was wrong—but she opened her mouth—just a little—just enough for him to feel the rush of her breath on his lips. And then she leaned into him—so gently, so easily. Christ, like they belonged together.
Holy hell. This was bad. This was so fucking bad. He should stop, walk away while he still had possession of his balls. But he needed this taste. This one little taste to make the want go away.
He pressed his mouth to hers—lightly—just to keep a hint of her to savor for later—but she opened to him, tilting her head to let him in. She got up on her toes, a gentle hand wrapping around his neck—and God help him—but he leaned into her, gave into her. He fell into that delicious mouth, stroking inside with his tongue. And it was so fucking hot, it just cut him wide open, letting all that need come gushing out.
Rating/Review: 5 freaking cups of java! Its a keeper!
This book was clearly a surprise in so many ways. Mine For Now has the many elements that makes it a good New Adult Romance, the angst, the realisation of growing up, of becoming adults, conflict that makes the characters grow and become better, hot and sexy (of course!) But it in so many ways it surprises me with its very compelling characters, its real life conflicts, the matter of fact ways it is dealt with, without too much drama and most of all the way the writer just draws you in, makes you invested in Dylan and Nicole's story. Mine For Now is one of those books you seemly have to devour in one sitting and yet savor each written word that carries enough emotion to just make you laugh, cry and just jump up and say "YES!" to redemption and love. Dylan and Nicole's journey is both bittersweet but its also very hopeful and has all the feels you can possibly imagine.

From that moment on, she's been devouring the genre and has found her true voice as an author. Over three decades she's written poems, screenplays, plays, short stories, and all kinds of women's fiction novels. Married to the love of her life and raising four children, she's lived in two countries and seven states, but give her pen and paper, a stack of good books, and a steaming mug of vanilla chai latte and she can make her home anywhere.
