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.

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.



The lure of One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy was defiantly the drama. Why would this famous college football star who could have any girl that he wanted, need a pretend girlfriend for thanksgiving break? The underlining drama called to me and I answered. I was looking for a character driven story filled with intense steamy romance and drama that ensnared me and One Week Girlfriend definitely delivered. I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed it! 

The romance was hot, the chemistry Drew and Fable had from the beginning but I enjoyed the connection of their relationship grow and intensify as the story progressed and they got to know each other as the truths became known.

What I liked most about the story besides the amazing romance and drama was getting the chance to know these characters. What lead them to the place they were currently at. Fable and Drew were interesting, complex characters. Drew seemed like the typical beautiful jock but there was a hint of depth to him and he got interesting by the second. He was very stoic, which made me want to figure him out. I liked Fable from the beginning, she kept it real and down-to-earth. She pushed Drew in all the right ways but still had vulnerabilities that made her realistic. I loved the depth that the story had with those questions being raised and more questions arising as the story developed adding to the drama.

Wow, was there drama. The kind that makes you sit up and pay attention, watching as it totally rocks the characters world! There was a bit of foreshadowing which had me going, It better not be what I think it is! And when the climax hit, it hit in a big way!

The way that things ended left me going What? Really? Total cliffhanger. Good thing the second book Second Chance Boyfriend is out so there is no wait time because there is defiantly more to Drew and Fable’s story and I look forward to reading how things unfold.

Overall One Week Girlfriend was a delicious read, hot romance, complicated characters and intense drama.
