Temporary. That's the word I'd use to describe my life right now. I'm temporarily working double shifts - at least until I can break free. I'm temporarily raising my little brother - since apparently our actual mother doesn't give a crap about either of us. And I always end up as nothing but the temporary girlfriend - the flavour of the week for every guy who's heard the rumour that I give it up so easily.

At least Drew Callahan, college football legend and local golden boy, is upfront about it. He needs someone to play the part of his girlfriend for one week. In exchange for cash. As if that's not weird enough, ever since he brought me into his world, nothing really makes sense. Everyone hates me. Everyone wants something from him. And yet the only thing Drew seems to want

I don't know what to believe anymore. Drew is sweet, sexy, and hiding way more secrets than I am. All I know is, I want to be there for him - permanently.

The Drew + Fable series has been on my TBR pile for what feels like, forever! I finally took the plunge and purchased One Week Girlfriend when it was on sale and now I know what I was missing out on, and you know what… I am kicking myself! It was a heartbreaking read, but I loved seeing Drew and Fable grow closer and help each other through a difficult time, especially for Drew.

Drew was the one who approached Fable about accompanying him home for Thanksgiving. I could see that he was using Fable as a buffer between himself and his parents, but Fable didn’t mind because other than her payment, she was getting closer to Drew  and was finally able to open up to someone herself. The attraction between Drew and Fable was there early on, their relationship grew gradually and quickly become intense.

Drew’s Father and Stepmother were interesting people. Drew painted his father as an arrogant guy, but I really think he does have Drew’s best interests at heart. His stepmother Adele, rubbed me the wrong way from the start… she is not a nice person at all!

Early on in the book I worked out part of what Drew’s secret was, and with little clues I knew what the whole story was before Drew and Fable did. It really saddened me to see what Drew had to endure and I just wanted to reach in there and hug him!

Monica Murphy is an author that I have become to enjoy. I have read her The Rules series and the first book in her Never Tear Us Apart series, and I continue to enjoy the way I get swept away in her worlds. One Week Girlfriend had heartbreaking moments, but there were sweet times between Drew and Fable that I loved. The downer for me… I didn’t realise that their story continued into the next book, so I need to get my hands on the next book soon!

This was a moment where Drew was baring his feelings.

“What? Are you jealous?”
“Fuck yes, I am!” I roar, unable to stop the words from spilling out. “After everything we’ve shared, especially after yesterday, you have the nerve to ask if I’m jealous? Of course, I am. This isn’t a game to me, Fable. This is my life. And I want you to be a part of it. But if you’d rather fuck around with other guys, then I can’t deal with that. I want you and you only. I’m not sharing you with anyone else.”
