Publisher's Summary

It’s not supposed to mean anything...until it does. 

The hot guy in a suit sitting next to me at the bar? I don’t know who he is, but when he tries to pick me up, he seems surprised when I sass him and turn him down. Truth? He’s practically irresistible, and I almost say yes. 

Turns out, he’s Jackson Bennett, a cocky billionaire with a playboy reputation. And he has a very interesting proposition for me. 

He wants to whisk me away for a week. No strings. No expectations. Just a crazy, lust-filled week of luxury with the hottest man I’ve ever met. 

We come from different worlds, and it isn’t supposed to mean anything. But the fire between us is scorching hot - in and out of the bedroom. 

Our hearts are supposed to stay out of this, but apparently mine didn’t get the memo. And when things get complicated - really complicated - it puts both of our hearts on the line.

#Sassygirl555-SchoolsTheCaptain!


Melissa and Jackson are from different worlds. He's rich, she's a school teacher, he's used to getting everything he wants, she's used to working hard for what little she has. After meeting in a bar, she schools him on Scotch! They have chemistry, and he wants to spend the night with her, but when she says "No" he finds out she isn't like the usual women he's used to picking up. He lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous, and tweets about almost everything including the sassy girl he met at a bar. When Melissa sees his tweet, she can't resist creating her own tweeter account @sassygirl555, and replies to his tweets. Soon their tweets turn to texts, then to phone calls, and before long he's taking her for a week long adventure with the intention of sweeping her off her feet. His lifestyle overwhelms Melissa, and they have a few bumps during their escape, but he's patient, and it pays off with some steamy and sweet romance. But as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end." When their week is over, neither was prepared for the emptiness they would feel going back to their own lives. Jackson being used to getting his way, doesn't want things to end, but he quickly learns some people can't be bought, and he will have to win Melissa's heart.

Overall, this was a cute fun story, and felt like a combination of Pretty Woman, and Cinderella. While it was more of a instant love story, their relationship was developed throughout the audio. This was another great KU/whispersync 💎! Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series. No Cliffhangers, and a HEA!

Overall good

The female character fit in my nerves sadly early on.

Spoilers below:

He sweeps her away but she has an emotional fit about exactly that and everything he's offering while on trip- to the point of making him apologize for the suite?!? plus she didn't even call to find out why card was declined?!?
She was too dramatic and emotional for me.
That being said it was still a cute, albeit predictable story

LOVE THIS SERIES

This is such a sweet series. The way Jackson was introduced in the last book, I just assumed he was going to be a total jerk. When he met Melissa, I was conflicted. She is such a sweet character. I am so pleased with the way Claire brought them together.

Loved the first book

This book didn’t quite have the same elements that the first book did. The male lead was rich and the typical playboy. Yawn. I liked the female lead, she was funny and charismatic. Performances were great but overall it lacked a certain chemistry

Sexy and Sweet Small Town Romance

The second book in Claire Kingsley’s Jetty Beach series, One Crazy Week is a contemporary romance set in a small, coastal town in the Pacific Northwest. This is the story of Jackson and Melissa, both of whom were introduced as secondary characters in the first book in the series. Jackson is extremely wealthy and only knows the life of the jet set. Melissa is a school teacher who grew up in Jetty Beach as the daughter of a fisherman who’s a single father. The chemistry between Jackson and Melissa is off-the-charts, but Melissa throws Jackson a curve when she’s not easily enamored by his lifestyle. There’s no cheating and the story ends with a sweet HEA…overall, a fun, low angst, sexy romance!

Written in first person, with dual POVs, Kimberly Roelle and BJ Pottsworth gave strong performances as Melissa and Jackson!

poor narration, nice steamy scenes, expedited HEA

There are good things about this book. It is an interesting premise of a bored single teacher going off for a week of fun with a hot guy she's been texting, and I like that her reactions to the crazy week and "lifestyles of the rich and famous" are way more realistic than we normally get in this super-rich mMC wants poor/ lower middle-class fMC setup. I find it amusing (if unbelievable) that he just doesn't get it, like at all, that his way of life is soooooooooo outrageous. There were also some very annoying oversights such as when her card is declined and she checks her account, but doesn't call the bank like she said she would (I assumed she would find out that they declined a purchase in another part of the country because that isn't normal for her account, but ah well) and when we hear this discussion about mMC gay assistant, but the mMC and assistant ask fMC to strip for a make-over but never actually reassure HER that it isn't weird her new boyfriend wants her naked in front of multiple guys... and she just goes along with it because he gives her a nod ,,, of permission? of reassurance? of encouragement? it isn't clear. But aside from those two glaring oversights in the editing, I felt like her reactions to things were actually pretty normal and realistic, especially compared to other books.
But, then we get to the end and you would expect that he's going to need to totally change his approach with her to reassure her that he understands her and what she wants in the relationship and what he is doing wrong, and also to somehow address the paparazzi issue, but all we get is 20 minutes for a small-gesture proposal that only shows he understood for like 5 minutes that she didn't want flashy and an epilogue suggesting that she is leaving the job she didn't want to lose and integrating into his life basically as it was but with less partying. It was a big let-down at the end after she was so reasonable and self-reliant before that.
Lastly, I agree with the other reviewers that the narrators were not good. They both had weird pacing that made the mMC more laid-back and the fMC more nasally vapid and whiny than they are described by the text. I think that really colors the overall audiobook, and might explain some of the other negative reviews. I don't think the narrators shouldn't narrate anything, but certainly not these characters... and maybe not anything with dialogue since they (especially the guy) barely differentiated between speech and thought or between characters.

Sucky voices

I love Claire Kingsley and this series - but never have I heard worse voices. BJ Pottsworth sounds like a maniacal serial killer and Kimberly Roelle sounds like a teenage drama Queen. Completely destroyed my desire to want to like the characters.

Awful Male Narrator

Male voice is absolutely repulsive. I had to stop listening and read the kindle version instead. Love the author, but this narrator is now on my never again list. Whew…

No, Just No

The narration ruins the book. There it is, I said it. The sex scenes are just awful - both narrators rush through, making these scenes seem unimportant. So disappointing.

Horrible female portrayal…

I probably Listen to 1 romance book a day… had amazing books, ok books, and awful ones… sadly never write reviews… this is my 2nd one in the past 4 months out of at least 95 books, I don’t expect great or awesome all the time.. maybe that is why I don’t write… but the female “teacher” person on this book, was one of the most annoying, stupid female characters, I ever had to listen for 5 hours… I was hoping the whole time she was dump. The guy behave amazingly nice, given the stupidity of the female lead… it was predictable and sooooo frustrating to listen to this “teacher” woman complain and dwell on her stupid thoughts… can’t believe any positive reviews on such a shallow novel… even the intimate “passion” parts where stupid and repetitive!! Waste of $5 bucks…. Yes it was on sale… but the worst is the time spend… hope no one has to go through this waste of time!!!! Sorry… but had to at least save some people out there…. HORRIBLE….

One Click

This was a great read of blending two worlds into one. What started as one crazy week, turned into more.
Narration was awesome.
