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!).

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 stepmoth

I still not on board with this duet. In the previous book, I do not like how Drew'a past was handled in the story. And its still not handled well in the conclusion, IMO.

I was expecting more angst. More serious story line.

The only thing I like about this book is the swoony part. The relationship between Drew and Fable is swoon worthy. Especially Drew who tried his damnest to be better man.

Overall this is OK story to close my weekend.

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.

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

A very good read, although I still liked the first one better. Fable is still a very likable character. I was glad even though Colin is very hot and very mysterious, the author didn't take the easy way out by exploiting the Colin angle and turning this into an unnecessary love triangle. I liked that it was really about Drew and Fable dealing with what happened during the first book.

Plus, I did get a beautiful and believable HEA that I wanted. I enjoyed it very much!! Can't wait for Colin's book

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.

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 relationshi

Drew Callahan is my absolute weakness. Like a drug I can't get enough of. He's my addiction and if I'm being honest with myself, I'm not looking to kick that particular habit anytime soon.

Fantastic conclusion to a very beautiful story.

I loved this book. I liked it even more than the first, and I really liked the first.

The book starts of around 2 months after the first one ended.

Drew and Fable are both dealing with the fallout of the events that took place at the end of One Week Girlfriend.

I really liked that Drew had made his own decision to seek professional help and see a therapist. He had a long road to recovery, but it was realistic and heart-breaking to read.
