Um, I'm not trying to be an ego maniac by giving my own book 5 stars but I just wanted to let everyone know a few things about SECOND CHANCE BOYFRIEND...

-- There will be no cliffhanger. This book wraps up Drew + Fable's story.

-- It will be LONGER. Much longer.

-- It will be SEXIER. Much sexier. I've come to realize that Drew + Fable can't keep their hands off each other.

-- Release date is scheduled for **EDITED TO ADD** April 9th (SORRY EVERYONE ONLY ONE MORE WEEK TO WAIT!).

I loved him in the first book but now, he's also become a poet!?

And he had this^^ particular poem tattooed as a sign of his true love for Fable. How can you not love a guy who does a romantic gesture like that? Him alone, makes this book worth reading. Seriously. So, if you're going to read this series, prepare to *swoon* over him. Don't say I didn't warn you!


Holy hell this book was AWESOME!!!! I'd give this one more stars if they were available. I love it when a book totally lives up to the hype and this sequel did that and more... It was everything I wanted it to be...

This one picks up about 2 months where One Week Girlfriend left off.. Drew and Fable are seperated and both very unhappy. Drew and Fable both come from very unstable families and we found out some extreamly heart wrenching things about Drew towards t

Second Chance Boyfriend is a fast paced, sexy, romantic, wonderful sequel!

This book picks up with both Drew and Fable feeling the loss after Drew leaves her “the note” at the end of the first book. This story is told in alternating POVS of Drew and Fable with a shocking POV from the evil stepmother

You know how there are just some authors whose writing style just “clicks” for you. It’s so effortless and easy to read. You find yourself sitting down to read ONE chapter and the next thing you know, it’s 3 hours later and you’ve completely ignored all those things you were supposed to do today. Yeah, Monica Murphy is one of those people for me. I devoured both One Week Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend and loved them both.

Great series!!!!! I really liked Drew and Fable...I thought this book was a little more tame than the first but as a whole it was fabulous!!!

The only reason I'm not writing a bigger review for it is because I'm being lazy it has nothing to do with the book:))

Absolute GREAT series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 consecutive chucks to the dnf pile is a no-no for me so I stuck with this one until the painful end. Which means churning out this review was excruciating.

I read One Week Girlfriend as part of a group challenge and remember liking it enough because of Drew's screwed up, soapy past. I really wanted to know how his secret will hit the fan. I also remember my Monica Murphy Reading Experience to be quite pleasant with very little cringe-worthy moments.

Oh my Marshmallow. The continuation of Drew and Fable's story is sexier than the first book. I immediately start this because I can't get enough of these two. The story is still predictable but I really enjoyed the drama going on. I'm in awed of how these two get together and it's a sweet thing to see despite of all the shits they've been through. I think their story is greatly concluded.

I adored One Week Girlfriend, like a lot… like a lot, a lot, a lot. I loved the character of Fable and her strong will. Drew is another great character who seems to have it all, a big football star, wealthy, and very good looking but holding onto a big dark secret that no one knows, until Fable comes into his world. They were amazing together and the ending

war leider wieder nicht mein Fall... aber war schnell zu lesen.. schwanke zwischen 2 und 3 Sterne. Schwierig. :/


Meine Gedanken zum Buch:

Ich hatte leider schon mit dem ersten Teil meine Probleme, besonders mit Drews Wesensart, obwohl ich auch Mitleid mit seinem Schicksal hatte. Aber anstatt es wie Fable zu nehmen, die ebenfalls ein schweres Los mit ihrer Mutter gezogen hat, bietet sie dem Leben die Stirn, kämpft und lässt sich nicht im Selbstmitleid treiben

Second Chance Boyfriend was a perfect ending to the Drew+Fable story! I adored these characters and their emotional story in One Week Girlfriend, so I picked this up as soon as I finished OWG.

Our story picks up two months after One Week Girlfriend with Fable heartbroken and trying to move on after Drew basically dropped off the planet two months ago. You can’t really blame Drew, because seriously this guy had a whopper of a re

Nachdem ich den ersten Band "Total verliebt" der "Together Forever"-Reihe regelrecht verschlungen habe und nicht mehr aus den Händen legen konnte, habe ich schon sehnlichst auf den zweiten Band "Zweite Chance" gewartet und musste auch diese Geschichte direkt verschlingen. Ich habe Drew und Fable bereits im ersten Teil direkt ins Herz geschlossen, sodass ich sehr hohe Erwartungen hatte und ich wurde Gott sei Dank nicht enttäuscht.

This book ends the saga of Drew and Fable. It has been a wonderful and full of drama ride but the ending surely made it worth it.

The author has a way of one minute making you want to cry and in the next second you are swooning.

After "One Week Girlfriend" we left Fable broken hearted because Drew left her. This story opens up with a very confused Drew who sucks at football and is emotionally tortured. Fable and Drew go through more and more obstacles in their relationship and

This is the continuation of the broken and tragic love story of Fable and Drew. This book picks up 2 months after Once Week Girlfriend. The ending was hurtful and broken, Drew leaves Fable because he believes he is unworthy of love. 2 months have passed and Drew has not contacted Fable. She is struggling to move on with her life. He broke her heart and moving on is not as easy as it seems, really not as easy for Drew either.
