I started this book just expecting an easy read, but was pleasantly surprised! This book is really well written and the characters are very fleshed out. I liked both Ming and Brady and truly enjoyed reading about how their relationship evolved. Ming and Brady are both smart, loyal, career focused people and the way they made room for each other in their lives was very sweet. I also loved that Brady was not a manwhore!! It's rare these days to have a hero that is a hot cop who is also in a band a ...more

That blurb is not appealing. Not interested in reading about a heroine that's chasing after the hero who only wants her for sex. I bet she'll end up changing her life around just to accommodate him.

I’ve been reading the Time for Love series by Bethany Lopez since almost the beginning, and I’ve really grown to love this group of friends who’ve found true love within their circle and with newcomers along the way. Each of the titles in the series refers to a time element that is meaningful in the relationship, and this one, 7 months, is the story of Brady and Ming. Seven months refers to the length of time that Brady and Ming have been having a secret affair. Brady’s brother Brock is firmly e ...more

Ming has been in love with Brady for 7 months but Brady doesn't even want to think of love. Their arrangement becomes a bitter reminder to Ming that she deserves someone who loves her as much as she would love him. So, she decided to part ways and in the process breaks her heart.

All Brady ever wanted was to be a Police Officer. His life was meant to protect and serve. He has no place for love and doesn't know what to do with a woman who doesn't needs more than he can offer. But when M
WTF Are You Reading?
7 Months is a story that take a very friends and family oriented path straight to the hearts of it's readers.
Because while it is very clear that the attraction that keeps nights (and some mornings) very warm between Brady and Ming; has a far greater pull than either of the two ever anticipated. When they agreed to their "scratch each other's itch " relationship some 7 months prior.

Making matters worse for these two. The fact that everyone around them is either married, pregnant, or paired.

7 Months was a super light, fun, read and just what I needed after finishing a very heavy subject book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will definitely check out more books by this author.

Ming and Brady have been sleeping together for 7 months very casually and in secret. Brady is a policeman and Ming is a lawyer and they have lots of friends in common. Ming’s best friend is married to Brady’s brother. Brady is very introverted, he was deeply affected by his parents’ death at a young age an

Ok, maybe it is my fault that I picked up book #7, and didn't read any of the other books in the series, but the blurb seriously had me intrigued. If you are like me, you will be able to understand most that is going on, but may not understand the dynamics of the group and trust me when I say there is a HUGE group of them. All these "B" names, and nicknames, had me going back and forth trying to figure out who was who. But of course, this is my fault for not reading the books in order, so I didn ...more

Brady finally gets his story and I couldn't have picked a better woman for him. We met Ming in the preceding book in this beloved series and she immediately became a favorite of mine. I was honored to be able to beta read this novel. I am such a huge fan of the entire Time for Love series--these characters seem more like friends than people on a page--and reading this one was exciting but also sad since fans have to say goodbye. What a proper and sexy send-off to this NA series! Thank you, Betha ...more

*** Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. However, this doesn’t affect my opinion of this book and the words in this review. ***

I’d rather have Brady in my bed, in secret, than not have him at all.

As 7 Months wasn’t my first Bethany Lopez novel, Always Room for Cupcakes was, I had a couple of expectations. I liked my first novel from Bethany a lot and I hoped 7 Months wouldn’t disappoint. Now, I can happily say that I like 7 Mo

This review is for the audio version:

I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook of 7 Months by Bethany Lopez, the 7th book in the Time for Love series. All the stories can be read as standalones, as they are each about different interconnected couples. I have jumped around the series myself and have enjoyed each one I have read and/or listened too. Manda Lee, the narrator did an amazing job brining this story to life.

Ming and Brady have been having relations while not in a relationship for 7 months...but Ming wants more. When she puts forth an invitation and it is rejected she decides that she has to move on. Brady is very closed off, even more so than he realizes. When events for him to open his eyes and heart it changes his life. But the life of a cop is full of peril...

I loved that Ming was a strong woman and loved seeing her interact with her parents. I would have loved a scene with her Dad and Brady mee

The final O’Malley finally got his story. Brady and among story was so good. So much love, laughs and so much more. It was great to see the old gang here and there. But even better to see Brady open up and finally found his perfect match.

4 stars!

7 Months by Bethany Lopez is the seventh book in the Time For Love series, but can be read as a standalone as I did. Having finished the book, I recommend reading the others in the series first to get the full experience and understand the other relationships. Even with that said, I thought that this was a great story. It had everything that I always look for in the books that I read- steamy sex scenes (Score! - pun intended), great banter, minimal angst, and a happily ever after.

Loved this book! It was very bittersweet for me. I was absolutely thrilled to finally read Brady’s story. He's so quiet, brooding, mysterious…and way sexy. And at the same time, I’m sad – because this is the last book in one of my favorite series.

Brady’s main job is being a police officer. He also plays the drums on the side in a band with his (equally sexy) brothers. Doesn’t get much hotter than that. He keeps to himself, keeping up those walls around his heart. He may come off as standoffish o

Ahhh (insert sigh) I love these brothers! Somehow after reading every book in this series I missed 3 Seconds which really disappointed me. As soon as I finished this book I bought it and read that one too. These are standalone's but I do like to read in order. This series has not let me down even though I didn't get the order right.

I have been waiting patiently for this one to come out. I have loved all the books in the Time For Love series (though I missed out reading 21 hours)

7 months follows Brady and Ming. We meet them in the previous books and for the last 7 months they have been in a friends with benefits relationship. Which has suited them both, that is until Ming realises that she is in love with him and wants more.
Only problem is Brock isn't the whole 9 yards relationship kinda guy, which he tells her, so she lets

This was such a good story to read about Brady and Ming because it wasn't a love story that was easy. In real life it is not all sunshine all the time and easy. I think this story proves it. Sometimes people have their past they have to deal with so they can be a better person for you in the long run.

This started off as a fling that of course one person seems to have more feelings than the other. This is why it is so hard sometimes for people to say they don't want to be serious. Although you c

When you are in love with your best friends brother in law and you decide to be friends with benefits it starts to get old. After seven months Ming decides it's time to move on from Brady, however this move may change things.
Brady never opens up he thinks his life is fine until Ming decides that is it. Now with issues at his job and no one to really open up to he realizes what he just might need.
Can things stay like this or can they move on

Ming and Brady

Loved the last book in the series! I have waiting for Brady's book! Brooding Brady has found his match in Ming but doesn't realize it until she ends it their non-relationship with him.

There is plenty of drama, laughs and hot scenes to keep your interest!

Throughout the earlier books in this series you don't get a good read on Brady. He worked for his brother, lost his parents as a teen, plays drums in his brothers band and that's him in a nutshell. Now that he is older he wants to give up the painting job and become a cop.
For Brady he is used to keeping everything inside. He doesn't put himself out there or let anyone in. When he does finally extends the hand of friendship to Doobie its a little emotional.

This is a wonderful story filled with great characters. The story had a nice flow. It is filled with heartache, caring and wonderment. The characters are the main interest. Brady is has a great job, a hot extra curricular activity and a set of brothers and their wives who are to die for. He is the unknown here. Ming is successful and decides she deserves more than being a deep dark secret. I admire her for finally realizing what/who she really wanted. She happens to have a great bunch of friends ...more

This is 7 months book 7 in the Time For Love Series. I listened to this book in audio. I wasn’t completely excited about the narrator but the overall story was great. The friends and family found in this story are wonderful. Ming and Brady are perfect for each other, and so excited that they finally get that HEA. I really would have loved to see more of Ming’s parents. But Brady’s brothers are amazing and I love their family.
