“It’s the people who know you the best that can hurt you the most.”– One Week Girlfriend
When you look at the cover of this book, you would assume that the book was all about sex or some shallow storyline that you would predict already that you would not like it. I’ve been seeing this book on my Goodreads feed, and I ignored it to be honest. But, because of #smuttyreads2019challenge, I tried to add this book and finally read it.
The verdict was I was surprised to know that I ended up liking this one. And it was true that don’t judge the book by its cover. I liked the story so much – how the deep the book was, and the secrets that revealed at the end of the book. Though I predicted the secrets, I still liked the depth of the story and the depth of the characters. They were flawed, yet they still manage to be perfect with each other. I realized that I am a sucker of tear-jerker stories with a combination of sexiness. The characters were well developed in the story, which I really liked! I’m so sorry for this review, but I really liked One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy.
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.
