One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy
September 16, 2013 - Amy Phelps
A young bartender takes an offer from a college boy to pretend to be his girlfriend over Thanksgiving week in "One Week Girlfriend" by New York Times bestseller Monica Murphy.
Fable is working as many double shifts as she can to support her 13-year-old brother. Her mother is largely absent with her latest boyfriend and Fable is the only "mother" he knows. When a local college football player Drew Callahan, makes her the offer of $3000 for her to pretend to be his girlfriend to his parents, she is dubious. What does he really want? But needing the money, she agrees to go along.
Drew's family lives in a luxurous house. His father is largely absent, and his stepmother almost seems jealous of Fable. She is not sure if she wants to get involved with his family drama, but the more she is around Drew, begins to care for him. What secrets is he harboring? Why won't he let anyone get close to him?
There's both drama and romance in this quick read about two wounded people finding each other.
"One Week Girlfriend" is published by Bantam. It is $12 and 274 pages long.
