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.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

My craze for finding good New Adult novels to read have continue, and I think someone really needs to tell me to slow down a bit.

This was one of those books that I almost unable to finish, not because I didn’t like the book, but because this book contain certain element that it was almost too heavy and too ugly for me to continue reading. And I am still debating if I should read book two that’s currently sitting in my Kindle and have my closure of the story of Fable and Drew.

I have come across from time to time of books that aren’t for the faint of heart. I usually stay away from them for my own sake. I am often glad that the author and book reviewer would warn you ahead of time, that the book isn’t for everyone. Well, this was one that I wished I knew ahead, and by the time I realized what it was about, it was too late for me to stop. I had to finish it.

When the golden boy Drew Callahan offer $3,000 for Fable to be his temporary girlfriend, Fable didn’t really know what she agreed to. Not until she met Drew’s parents and endured through the weird behaviors, and the intense atmosphere at the home Drew grew up in. Fable knows something wasn’t quite right, that Drew was hiding something from her, and she wasn’t sure she was ready to know what it was about.

Neither Drew nor Fable came from a perfect home, with Fable being more obvious, an irresponsible drunken mother that jumps from boyfriend to boyfriend, and Fable have to work at a bar to support her and her brother. Drew came from a wealthy family, his mother passed away when he was little. His father remarried to a younger beautiful wife or should I say a sick evil monster bitch.

View Spoiler »It made me angry, even tearing to reading Drew’s memory fragments. Every time he opened up to Fable, something would trigger him, it left me feeling disturbed, emotional and heartbroken. I want to screamed at Drew’s father and ask him how can he not know. I want to stab his stepmother when she revealed a shocking, destructive news to Drew. How dare she, and I really hope that it isn’t true.

Reading One Week Girlfriend was an emotional ride for me, being a New Adult, thus the descriptions was a lot more graphical. If you are brave, don’t miss out on a good New Adult Romance book with a dark twist!

I am not sure what happened in Second Chance Boyfriend yet. I hope I can have my closure, because I really needs it.
