Series: Drew + Fable, #1
Publication Date: January 10, 2013
Temporary. That one single word best describes my life these last few years. I’m working at a temporary job until I can finally break free. I’m my little brother’s temporary mother since our mom doesn’t give a crap about either of us. And I’m that temporary girl all the guys want to get with because I give it up so easily. According to the rumors, at least.Drew runs off by himself to "deal" without really saying anything to Fable. *SPOILER END*
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.
I know. I said I wouldn't reveal it, but it was dremain to my predicament. You see, I didn't really fall for them as a couple. They were okay, but I think they could have been more. I think that One Week Girlfriend was one of those new adult books where there could be sweet romance, but it's bogged down by way too much drama. I can't barely read a NA book without there being some instance of rape or molestation, and well, it's starting to get on my nerves. Sometimes, I just want a cute, innocent romance, which I clearly will never find in the NA genre. But anyway, I'm going to move on before I get ranty.
Fable was really tough and honest, but sometimes I just found her to be kind of annoying. There's got to be some way to break through the exterior, right? Wrong. I'm pretty sure that Drew didn't even manage to break through. But that's alright, because guess what? She didn't break through his either. They were both locked up so tight that it's a wonder that anything came out. It seemed like they profound mistrust in each other, and by that spoiler up there, well, it's not unfounded. They both do untrustworthy things. Honestly, that ending was such crap. I feel terrible saying that, but it was.
Honestly, One Week Girlfriend just wasn't the book for me. But if it sounds like you'll like it, I say give it a shot.
