Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time…

He’s the man she loves to hate…

Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does notneed is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.

She’s the woman he has to have…

Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.

Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time…

But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning…and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.


"Meader SCORES another hit! Kate never fails to suck me in with larger than life characters and writing that blows me away. Between the crazy antics, hilarious banter, and love scenes hotter than the Mexican sun they happen under, I refused to lift my head until the very last page was turned." - Gina L. Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author

"Loved this book, adored the series, stellar epilogue." - Robinson Reviews

"Kate Meader's books are always so fun and hot to read!! This one is a fabulous enemies-to-lovers romance." - Booklovers for Life

"If you like your fairy tales a little on the naughty side, and equipped with an alpha that is dedicated to giving you everything you could possibly want or desire...then you MUST meet the men of the Tall, Dark, and Texan series!!" - Red's Romance Reviews

"Just the right mix of playfulness, animosity and heat. :-)" - About that Story

"A sexy friends to enemies to lovers story! It was a pleasure to see these characters again and to watch them make their way through their passion and turmoil." Thoughts of a Blonde blog

"I love a good friends-turned-lovers story, especially when there is a bit of angst and sexual tension thrown in for good measure. One Week to Score gave me all that wrapped up in a tidy bow in the shape of blond bombshell Olivia Kane and Texas hottie Flynn Cross." - Lianna I, NetGalley reviewer

"This book had everything you want in a great friend to lovers to more story; snark, witty banter, heartbreak, an overbearing brother, a few secrets, fantasies revealed, lots of sex and more heat than a four alarm fire." - Rachel H, NetGalley reviewer

"The chemistry between the two was off the charts, and the sex scenes were scorching!" - Andrea Z, Goodreads

"Scorching! The humor is like a red thread from beginning to end, and I giggled and chuckled and snorted A LOT! I will definitely read more of this author, she has that kind of tongue-in-cheek writing style I love." - Vanilla & Spice Books blog

It had been ingrained in him from year zero that Olivia Elizabeth Kane was so out of his league he’d need a seat on one of those private space rocket deals to reach her stratosphere.

Prettier Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

This is one of those books that is low in the angst department and has a high fun factor. I finished it with a smile on my face. It's a frenemy to lovers/best friend's sister story with all kinds of attitude, sass and cockiness.

But Flynn wasn’t a good guy. Not then, not now.
He was envy.
He was greed.
He was a man who’d stopped at nothing to have this woman, even if meant hurting her deeply.

What Olivia Kane needs now after her wedding day so spectacularly crashed and burned, was to get drunk and have anonymous se

5 Cocktacular ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is my first book to author Kate Meader. I have some books of her on my TBR shelf but never got the chance to read any. A situation I'm going to rectify as soon as possible.


When One Week to Score was released and I saw all those amazing reviews, I decided to give it a try.

I liked this. I like stories where the characters aren't perfect, where they have flaws and make decisions that maybe aren't the best, but for the right reasons.

Flynn was flawed. Olivia wasn't perfect either. But they are perfect for one another. And, ...more

Ooh, there’s not much better than a “best friend’s little sister” taboo romance!

Olivia Kane’s day has sucked. Drowning her sorrows in the hotel bar, Flynn Cross isn’t about to let Olivia get away from him again. He’s not about to let Olivia have a one-night stand with a perfect stranger. No way. No ...more
