Breakout sensation Monica Murphy takes the New Adult genre by storm with the deeply emotional, completely addicting story of Drew and Fable. 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 flavor of the week for every guy who’s heard the rumor 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 is . . . me. 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.

One Week Girlfriend fortunately falls in the latter. It was a sweet story, albeit a predictable one. Fable – yes, th...
I don't want to become dependent on Drew, yet it's too late. I am. Slowly, but surely, I am, and if I don't stop soon, my heart will become so entwined with his, I know I will literally bleed if we're ever separated.There is a reference in this book to the movie Pretty Woman, which is fitting consid...
Cliché? Sí.Predecible? Sí.Adictivo? Definitivamente.
3.5/5. New adult. Good story. Didn't love the writing when compared to let's say "Easy" by Weber or "Hopeless" by Hoover.
This review was originally posted on amazon on April 10, 2013: The good: a lot of people love this book, and there are decent reasons why this is true. It's reasonably well-written, and the characters are likeable. Oh, sure, it contains many of the standard NA tropes, with a bit of reversal - gorg...
