One Week Girlfriend #3.5

Drew + Fable Forever

Rate this book
Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original 40,000-word novella that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle.

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even taking responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, once again, he’s found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for?

Reality. Now the honeymoon’s over. Drew’s football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined our life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him all the time. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so. . . .

A sweet novella and a happy ever after for a couple who truly deserves it!

I loved the Drew + Fable books. Both of the characters in this series are wonderful. This delightful little novella took us farther into Drew and Fable’s story book ending. Drew is on the cusp of becoming a famous quarterback. He’s been drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. He wants Fable with him all the time, but he understands her need to be there for her brother Owen. There are challenges this couple faces, not being able to be with each other all the time being the biggest, but their relationship is solid enough that they can get through it. They've proved time and time again they can get through anything.

Their relationship has a few bumps in the road, but overall they are just the sweetest couple. I fell in love with Drew all over again while reading this! Fable is such an incredible match for him. Both of them have been through so much in their lives, and overcame it all...it was nice to see them get this lovely ending.

3,5 Sweet Stars.

I’ll be quick on this one since this only a novella. This book tells us the life of Drew and fable after the end of the second book.
Now, after learning how to deal with their ghosts and twisted pasts they are stronger than ever. It begins with their ending and show us their married life now that he is a famous football star… and how it isn’t always flowers and hearts.
But they are in this forever, right?


This was sweet and I enjoyed reading a lot. It felt like a giant epilogue and I just love epilogues.
The problem? SO CHEESY!
Believe me, I like romantic scenes and I love some cheesiness in the right moment, but when it’s too much, it too much.
We get it, they love each other. They don’t have to reassure (us and themselves) of how beautiful / perfect / indispensable they are to the other and how big is their love every FREAKING FIVE MINUTES! So, yeah, that was basically my only problem.


Rating: 3,5 Stars
Storyline: Hmm… cheesy? (I can’t seem to be able to stop saying this word. Cheesy. Cheeeesy …)
Writing Style: First person. Dual POV’s. And pretty good, exactly how Monica got us used to.
Character Development: Some small annoyances and yes, you got it, cheesiness, but other than that the same Drew and Fable we felt in love with. Only less broken.
Steam: Slightly hot, but way less than in the previous books.

In this sweet, sexy novella Drew And Fable continue to be one of my favorite couples! They are engaged and Drew is training and preparing to start football season. He has been picked up to play for the SF 49ers as their quarterback. Before all the craziness of the season begins they decide to go ahead and get married, and go on their honeymoon.

Soon after their wedding football season starts, and they find themselves having to adjust to a lot of changes. With Drew's football schedule he is mostly in San Francisco, or on the road with his team. Fable has to be at home with her younger brother Owen, who is still in high school. Drew, Fable, and Owen have become a family. Fable is home to Drew, so he's having a hard time being away from her.

As newlyweds starting a new life together they are finding life to be a little chaotic. Drew being a professional football player has suddenly thrust the couple into the public eye. They have to get used to their new celebrity type status. They continue to be as in love as ever, and never forget or take for granted how lucky they are to have found each other.

Drew and Fable have been through so much in their past, and have overcome it all together. They are in such a good place, and stronger together. They are essential to each others happiness. Drew is such a great guy, and gorgeous as ever. I love the way he adores and loves Fable. They have such a beautiful relationship. I am excited to get more of them in Owen's book, and can't wait for Owen's story! :))

-This woman is just fucking it for me.

-Those pretty green eyes are wide and fathomless, seeing everything, all of me, and not shying away.

-It's so easy with Fable. So easy it used to scare me. She's so accepting, so loving, so sweet and protective and fierce and blunt and beautiful, and all mine.

-I'm a lucky son of a bitch to have found her.

-Fable is the woman who will always stand by my side. Forever.

-"Whenever, wherever, you've got me, baby. I'm all yours."

-"Never lose sight of the fact that I love you for you, Fable. That I also happen to think you're gorgeous is just a bonus."

 photo 493e4654-3a1b-4ad3-bbae-0dc45ce3de6f.jpg

-He's so handsome, with all that dark hair tumbling across his forehead, his blue eyes flashing at me. The angular cheekbones, the lush mouth, the firm line of his jaw...I'm weak-kneed just looking at him. Still.

-My skin warms at his blatant perusal, the way his eyes seem to touch upon me as they rake over my body. I can feel him, as if he just physically touched me.

-He's bigger than he was when I first met him and I thought him huge then. He's wider, more solid, every muscle defined. That sprinkling of dark hair at the center of his chest gets me, as does the trail of hair that leads from his navel downward. There is nothing I love more than admiring my husband's body. Touching it. Knowing it's all mine.

-I smell him before I see him, his deliciously spicy masculine scent preceding him as he walks back into our bedroom. He's smiling, that wicked, arousing smile he flashes me right before he pounces. Wearing only his boxer briefs, he's beautiful.

-And he's looking at me at this very moment as if he's about to devour me.

-Cautious but bold. Gentle but strong. That's my Drew.

-He's staring down at me, still the beautiful boy I first fell in love with but now he's so much more.

This was a short novella of one of my favorite couples, Drew and Fable. I found it to be just right amount of realistic while staying Drew and Fable sexy/sweet.

Drew has graduated college and is the quarterback for the ‘49s while Fable is raising her teen brother, Owen. The dynamics of the three characters was well done as was the struggles they faced heading into their happily ever after.

"I'll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that."

I’m hoping to see more of my favorite couple in future installments of this series. I’m really excited about Owen growing up and having his chance at love!

Worth the read for fans of D + F!

”I love you too Fable.”
She looks up at me. “Forever?”
I smile and drop a kiss on the tip of her nose. “And ever.”

First impression:
This was a must-read for me! Drew and Fable are one of my absolute favorite couples.

The story:
In this story, we get to see where Drew and Fable's life is going. Drew has been drafted into the NFL and with that comes new stresses in their relationship. The fame, the travel, and the unexpected interest in their personal life can be taxing at times. Plus, they are taking care of Fable's brother, Owen. That's a lot for a young couple starting their life together. Let alone, two people who started off in difficult circumstances.

So, throughout the course of the novella, we see how they deal with their new life. One thing is certain though, they love each other and Drew always puts Fable first.

The characters:
I literally could go on and on about how perfect this couple is. They are seriously one of my all-time favorite couples. Ever. I love Drew. I love Fable. I love them together. What I love the most about their relationship is the fact that they put it first. They know, without a doubt, that they are meant to be together. They work through their issues as a couple. They truly have a partnership and the kind of love that lasts.

I loved seeing their wedding. It made me cry. I loved seeing how Drew took Owen on as his family and became a good role model for Owen. Then...there is a very special part in this novella that made my heart soar even higher. Dramatic, much? Yes, but seriously, it was absolutely perfect. I think when you read it, you'll know what I'm talking about.

This novella was everything I had hoped it would be. Drew and Fable are the kind of couple that just make you happy. It was bittersweet to know that this was the last story for them, but I'm comforted in knowing that we'll see them again in Owen's book.

Speaking of Owen...I am DYING for his book! I've always liked Owen. The end of February can't come soon enough!

If you haven't started this series yet, you must! It's one of my favorites and is always among my top recommendations.

Favorite Quote:
~“Are you checking me out?” she murmurs against my lips just before she pulls away.

“Wearing something like that, you knew this was going to happen.” I give her hand a tug and yank her down so she’s sprawled across me, nothing but hot, smooth skin and silk and lace fabric. “And wait until you see what I’m wearing.”
~"Your unconditional love, baby. You never backed down. You never gave up on me. Ever. And I needed that. I was so screwed up but you never let that stop you, thank God."

[I am binge reading novellas nowadays.]

Drew and Fable's romance = I really don't mind if it's a little cheesy but I just find their happy ending really sexy. D + F <3 <3 <3 I think One Chance Girlfriend is already a good conclusion but if you want more Drew's sexiness, read this novella. I'm so hooked with this series.

Soon, I will be Fable Callahan. I’ve earned the freaking privilege to call myself that, too. It’s not easy being with Drew. Yet I wouldn’t trade my life with anyone. -Fable

 photo tumblr_lsrszsuLpT1r0xz4zo1_500_zps09856805.gif

When you struggle for something so good, so right, you cherish it more. You hold it close, nurture it, protect it, make sure you never, ever let your guard down. That’s how I feel about my almost husband. -Fable

How many times has she pushed at my chest, like she wants to shove me away when really she’s always tugging me back. Pulling me in, absorbing me. And I always want to absorb her. Take her in and make her mine. Again and again and again. Yeah. I’ve got it bad right now. It’s all the change happening in our lives. -Drew

Damn, she’s beautiful. Will I ever grow tired of looking at her? Touching her? Kissing her? Fucking her? No. Never. -Drew

This novella follows Drew and Fable as their life continues years into the future. Drew has everything he’s ever wanted. He has Fable, an NFL contract and is piecing together a relationship with his father, letting the demons of his past go.

Fable has come a long way from that girl that signed up to be the pretend girlfriend. As her and Drew travel through their life, from marriage, Drew’s crazy schedule, raising Owen and the thoughts of a family of her own; we get to see it all.

This was not your typical novella that gives you just a few added weeks or months of a story. We get a few years. Drew and Fable are two of my favorite couples and getting a chance to experience these perfect moments with them were fantastic.

From the moments where they had to pinch themselves just to prove that this was real, the poems, eff’n marshmallows and just life in general. I am thrilled that Monica Murphy is struggling letting these two go, it just means more for us!

4.5 lovely stars

What a great novella to catch up with Drew and Fable's life as a married couple. Drew is now on his way to becoming a famous professional football player, while Fable was the luckiest/happiest woman to grace the earth.

Well, there was wedding bells...., honeymoon....., baby...... you get the gist. This novella was full of love, love and more love.

Okay, there was quite a bit of recap on Book 1 & 2, but it was okay for me since I read them ages ago. Is good to refresh my memory. I like the fact that this took place in a period of years. I didn't realized how much I miss them until I read this. Marshmallow, anyone? We even got a glimpse of Fable's brother, Owen. He's too cute. I can't wait for his book that coming out Feb 2014.

Drew and Fable are one of my favorite couples out there and I'm always always excited to read more from couples that I admire and that's the same case with Drew and Fable.

Okay, this might sound a bit weird but at the first couple of pages my mind is like playing a quick flashback to everything that happened between our lovies Drew and Fable. It's like a complete rehash of everything they've both been through up until they reach their married life. I love the realization on both parts. It's sweet and romantic.

So why the 2 stars rating? Well, its because it was just okay and nothing too unexpected happened. Maybe also because it was too short and the circumstances on their married life wasn't tackled well but whatever that might be, my rating for this book will not affect my admiration for both the characters.

I was in tears before I even opened the book, just knowing Drew+Fable's journey was coming to a close made me an emotional wreck. I yelled out "Marshmallow" and sadly, no one came to my rescue. Drew+Fable truly is a book for the fans of this series. Monica listened 100% to all of the hopes and dreams we had for these two and made them a reality for us. She's written us a BEAUTIFUL conclusion, taking us along their journey into married life and throwing in a few surprises along the way. I couldn't have asked for a better ending to their story. I'm hoping we catch glimpses of them in Owen's story, Four Years Later
*sigh* I still can't believe it's over. I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes that just made me lose it:

"This woman is just fucking it for me. She's no longer a girl anymore. The jaded, angry and defiant girl who was so determined to fight the world is gone, though shades of her still shine through.

I loved that girl. Fiercely. And I love the woman she is now, just as fiercely. She's my fiancee, my future wife, the future mother of my children. Fable is the woman who will always stand by my side.


Annnnnd here come the tears again...

Drew and Fable Forever es una historia corta que forma parte de la saga One Week Girlfriend.
Tenia muchisimas ganas de leer esta novela pero tambien tenia mis dudas, puesto que despues de leer Threee Broken Promises me senti un poco decepcionada, ya que la historia no fue todo lo maravillosa que esperaba, por lo que fui aplazando la lectura hasta que me decidi a leerla. No es un secreto que Drew y Fable son una de mis parejas literarias favoritas, simplemente no puedo resistirme a leer cualquier libro en el que ellos aparezcan.
La historia fue aun mejor de lo que esperaba cuando empece la lectura : tierna, dulce y muy hermosa, cada vez que leo un libro nuevo, me enamoro aun mas de ellos, son simplemente perfectos juntos!
Ojala Monica Murphy escriba mas libros sobre ellos, nunca consigo suficiente de esta pareja. Y me encantaria leer la historia de Autunm!

4.5 Estrellas!!!

This is essentially a really long epilogue to Drew and Fable’s story. After all they’ve been through, I was really happy to see them together, in love, and happy. And while they have new challenges to face now that Drew is the hottest new thing in the NBL, and Fable remains at home to be there for her younger brother, Owen, it’s all good between them with very little drama and a beautifully happy ending.

“When you struggle for something so good, so right, you cherish it more. You hold it close, nurture it, protect it, make sure you never, ever let your guard down.”

Picking up a year after their engagement, this novella follows them through their achingly romantic wedding, and their first few years together as husband and wife. And it’s full of swoony moments, and lots of sexy time.

Told in dual POV, we get up close and person with both of them and Drew proves his epicness over and over again. The man is so in love, it’s beautiful.

“I love you. Only you. You’re it for me, Fable … You’ve seen me at my best, at my worst, and everything in between. I don’t want anyone but you. What you’ve given me, it’s the best gift I’ve ever received.”

I love the glimpses of Owen now that he’s a bit more grown up, and I’m really looking forward to reading his book.

If you’re a Drew and Fable fan, you really can’t miss this one.

4 stars.

A perfect happily-ever-after for Drew and Fable. This series has been a surprise from the very first book . . . surprisingly captivating and appealing to my reader's needs. The journey to maturity and into the grownup world for Drew and Fable hasn't been an easy ride. We've watched them share a world of hurt and sadness but they survived together and overcame the rough and tough.

Can't wait for Fable's brother, Owen, to get his story told in "Four Years Later" to be released March 4, 2014.

This Drew and Fable novella is a perfect little gift given to us by the author. I love these two characters and have from the beginning. They've battled the most intense of demons and still came out stronger together. D+F Forever is a glimpse into their lives after Second Chance Boyfriend. It's sweet, sexy, and totally perfect for these two characters who mean the whole world to each other. If you're a fan of the series you'll be a fan of this story. I can't wait for Owen's story next.

Es el libro del "y vivieron felices por siempre..." . Pero, a pesar de los clichés, Drew y Fiable son tan lindos juntos, que cualquier cosa de ellos te enamora.

Y no puedo negarlo, me encantan los finales felices...
