Review: Drew + Fable Forever by Monica Murphy
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. . . .
*This is a Novella in the One Week Girlfriend Quartet*
This was a short, sweet, sappy novella, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Drew and Fable. The story continues from the ending of Three Broken Promises and before Four Years Later. Drew is drafted into the NFL, Owen is finishing up high school and starting college, and Fable is well Fable. I really don’t want to give spoilers but as you can see they get married, and in Drew and Fable fashion, it is romantic, sexy, and steamy. After the honeymoon there lives get into swing and this is about them learning to find a balance between everything.
The one thing that bothered me in this book is that Fable quits striving for her dreams and kinda becomes a footballer’s wife. It was disappointing to see she wasn’t taking classes or working at The District with Jen anymore. I missed this aspect of Fable, the striving for my goals and no one is going to get in my way. Overall it was a great read but fell short of the full length novels from this series. I would rate this 3.5 stars.
