One Week Girlfriend & Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy Reviews

One Week Girlfriend & Second Chance Boyfriend Reviews
Goodreads Description:
**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.
How did I hear about this gem of a series?
Well I actually heard about this series by signing up to be  part of a blog tour. I haven't heard too much about it and I hadn't really had it on my radar. But all I can say is this: I am so glad I chose to be a part of this tour because wow. I loved this series.
What did I think?
I will say that I was really intrigued by the blurb on the back and couldn't wait to start it. Once I started reading, I was immediately hooked....drawn in by the words and the total story. 
I will say I was wary because I have been reading a few books lately that seem to follow the same sort of pattern. I was pleasantly surprised that this was different than what I originally thought.
Let's start with Fable. Have I mentioned how much I actually love that name? Seriously....so completely perfect for this story. She's so strong and passionate. I loved her from the beginning. I also loved how she was flawed and yet didn't hide from it.
Drew was the ultimate dreamy football player. Big, strong and gorgeous. He looks like he has it all together but there is a deeper, mysterious side of Drew that slowly gets revealed throughout the book. I actually liked the fact that the male character had the trauma and not the girl, which is the norm.
I loved the chemistry between Drew and Fable. It sizzled and sparked all over the place and I couldn't help but practically feeling it come off the pages. And I mean not just the chemistry between these two was apparent but EVERYTHING was so clear.
The week with Drew's family was full of mystery, angst, tension, and pretty much every emotion you can think of. I fell in love with this book and the story telling was completely excellent.
Murphy's writing was really beautiful in this book and everything flowed so perfectly. I can't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series. Looks like to be just as exciting as the first!

Goodreads Description:
**Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual content and language, mature subject matter**
New Adult Contemporary
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.
Love 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.

What did I think?
OMG where do I even start with this epic second book?! No words can fully describe the feelings throughout this entire book. I laughed, raged, cried, swooned and gasped. I went through them ALL.
Fable & Drew's relationship is on the rocky side since Drew found out some shocking news at the end of One Week Girlfriend. No worries, I'm not putting spoilers in here because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else. Especially since I will be definitely be referring this series to EVERYONE.
Drew & Fable have been through a lot. Yes, they only spent a week together so far but man....what a week. When you have that instant connection with another person, it just will not let you go.
When I started reading Second Chance Boyfriend, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what was going to go down. Monica Murphy completely went in a different direction. Although I saw a couple things coming, the overall story threw me for a loop.
Since this is so new, I will have to do a short review because the things happen in this book that I cannot mention (spoilers) are pretty epic. I can't wait to read what everyone else says about these fantastic books. I recommend them to everyone who wants a good story that has every emotion you can think of. I actually did a fist pump in the air as well at one point. Once you read it, I'm sure you'll know what part I'm referring to. ;-)
