But now I’m the temporary girlfriend of Drew Callahan, college football legend and all around golden guy. He’s beautiful, sweet–and he’s hiding way more secrets than I am. He’s brought me into this fake life where everyone seems to hate me. And everyone seems to want something from him. The only thing he seems to want though is…
I don’t know what to believe anymore. All I know is, I think Drew needs me. And I want to be there for him.
One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy is a quick fun read that has both some sweet and some steamy scenes. First of all, I love the MC’s name – Fable is so cute. Of course, she’s anything but a storybook princess because as she freely admits, she’s pretty loose in the “relationship” department. And I do use the term “loose” seriously. 😉
Her would-be hero, Drew Callahan is her total opposite – rich, well-bred, stays away from girls, and deathly afraid to have any kind of relationship.
And yes, Drew is hiding a secret. It’s a big one – bigger than you can ever imagine!
The premise is this: Drew has to go home for Thanksgiving (he’s in college, Fable doesn’t go to college because she’s broke and has to take care of her little brother because her mom is a deadbeat) and Drew is determined to hire Fable to be his pretend girlfriend for the week to keep his family at bay. This translates into keeping his clingy step-mother away from him and his father off his back about girls.
It works too – but along the way they start to like each other. There is hand holding and kissing and lots of first date kind of things. Even some shopping is involved. It’s all pretty sweet, really. The cover actually makes you think it’s almost erotica, but it’s not. It’s a nice story with a few steamy scenes.
Predictable? Yes. It’s all very predictable. But I’m giving it four stars anyway because there are a few twists in this book that I never saw coming and that made all the difference.
Like I said – a quick read, a fun read, and it’s only $2.99 at Amazon!
