One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Blurb (from Goodreads):

New Adult Contemporary Romance

**Mature situations and sexual content - recommended for ages 17+**

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.



What a heart wrenching, story about 2 wounded, lost souls who find what they are missing and need in each other.  I was intrigued right from the start with the twists and turns this book took, some predictable, some not! 4 stars

Fable is the lead female character and she is a doesn't take crap kind of girl and has a reputation to match. Oh, and shocker, she is actually not a virgin! She has a crappy life, can't afford college, and spends her days working and taking care of her brother because her mothers is an alcoholic. Enter Drew.....wealthy, mysterious, sweet, the guy every girls wants and every guy wants to be.  Drew has a proposition for Fable, one that leads her into his shocking past, where gut wrenching secrets are revealed, and makes her realize that her and Drew have a connection and more things in common than either one could ever imagine.  Just goes to show you, money can't buy happiness.  The question is, when two wounded souls find what they need in each other, is love enough to bring you back from a past filled with despair and guilt?

This book had me from the start. There were times when my heart ached, I was furious, and crossed my fingers and toes for this couple to heal each other and move forward. My only complaint was I wanted more......I'll anxiously be awaiting the sequel......second chance boyfriend. MARSHMALLOW!!!!
