One Week Girlfriend, Book 2
Synopsis: Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.
But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.
If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.
Review: I was very curious to read the second volume after a pretty terrible end in the previous one. It must be said that the story did not end necessarily well and it was nice to see our two heroes again there. Of course we know how it all will end, we expect it without too many surprises, but many other events are some real revelations.
As I said, and as it is explained in the summary, our couple is separated and of course both are miserable in their separate ways. Yet fate brings them together, allowing them to start something new and to heal their wounds. But their problems are far from resolved and each have to carry a terrible burden. It starts with Fable who must assume the mother’s job for Owen, as hers seems to increasingly forget them and therefore treats them as less than nothing. But in addition, the young woman has just found a job in a luxury restaurant but the boss has a strange behavior. Even late in the story I still can not really statute on that a little unhealthy and weird character. Secondly, we also follow Drew who is facing his past and his own demons. Unfortunately to get out and to live the life he wants to, he needs the one he loves.
I was quite surprised by the way of how Drew’s life catches him up, as well as his family stories. I confess that I did not expect such a turnaround as fast but it was interesting to see how the characters would react to all this. It’s very touching to see what our two heroes must cross to get to be a possibility of a happy life, but also to see that they are trying to do everything together to support one and the other.
It was a good second novel, perfectly complementing the first one and I confess that I am very curious now to read more and discover for example the Owen’s story as he is a very interesting guy and I’m curious by the POV of his life and of course to see the way the other characters evolve.
So glad this complemented the first one so nicely, I love it when that happens!
yes me too
I am a tad bit curious 😉
lol even if NA?
Oh wow this is so surprising! I haven’t tried anything from this author even though I’m such a huge reader of the genre. Maybe I’ll try her other books since the first book was not that good. Thanks for your review!
the first book was good, well I really liked it myself.
Monica Murphy’s books are already on my TBR list, so I’m glad to hear your excitement for this series! I definitely have to make some space for her novels soon . . .
I hope you’ll like her books too
I’m always happy when book two is as good as book one 🙂 Great review.
There seem to be a lot of ‘sporty type meets and falls in love with ….’ books on the market at the moment. Not something I’d naturally go for but I find curiosity getting the better of me so will have to see what is available at the library.
maybe it will be for you too
I don’t think I know this series. That’s good you liked the sequel! You just never know with second books.
I am glad to hear that this novel bounced the series back for you after the ending of the first one.
It’s always a nice surprise when the second book is as good as the first. I admit that I’m curious now after reading this review. Also, I think the cover is pretty 🙂
I’m happy to see you switch up your reads. I envy you though, you seem to be enjoying your picks while I’ve been on a semi-rut.
it depends on the books, I had many mixed too
It’s been a while since I’ve read these books, but I remember enjoying them. I’m glad it worked out for you. 🙂
How great that it not only completed the first book, but that it left you wanting more. I’m happy you’re enjoying these.
Ahhh, I hate when couples are separated and then are brought back together, I have to be in the mood for all that angst, haha. Glad it didn’t have second-book-syndrome! 😀
Sounded better and better as I went through the review! LOL
Love her books. That’s great this one went better and has you excited for more 😀
