Book Review: One Week Girlfriend

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.

My thoughts: Monica Murphy’s One Week Girlfriend isn't the story I was expecting at all. I thought oh alright so they've just had a one week relationship what’s the point in reading that. But it’s really not like that.

Its twist and turns in the story would totally make your mouths open. I couldn't imagine some scenes that happened in the story.

I did not expect Drew Callahan's past to be so shocking -- and it totally haunts him -- especially since he's rich, the star of the College football team, a smart student, popular, etc. People think he's living a perfect life.

I didn't expect that Fable Maguire is just not some ordinary girl like people judge her as cheap, a waitress, whore of the town, a school dropout. But in the story you will come to see how responsible she is, a loving sister to her 13 years old brother Owen, she's smart and has deep thoughts. That is who the real Fable is. The bad judgments that describe her were just a wall she put up for people who really do not know her.

Well you know as they say "Don't judge the book by its cover." This story is one of them. I gave a try reading it, because curiosity got the best of me and it turns out there's more of a deep story than meets the eye. An original story too. So read it to find out what Drew's secret is from his past and how Fable will be able to help Drew get past those secrets and how Drew changed Fable too.
