I loved Drew and Fable, the One Week Girlfriend series is one of my favorite angsty series.

We got a chance to have Owen’s book (Fable little bro) and now it’s time for Wade (Owen’s best friend) to tell his story.

Even if this book is definitely less angsty than the others, I really appreciated to read about Wade, who was doing his best to take care of his mother, far from his bad old habits. Now as a rookie player in Drew’s team, he felt pressured. Time to show his game.

Sydney was totally lost. Kicked out by her parents, she had to live on her own and when she got hired as a new nanny for Drew and Fable’s kids, it was too good to be true. When a rumor involving her and Drew having an affair, she has to help them to put the paparazzi out of the blue.

The crazy thing? Being in a relationship with a guy she only met once. So when Fable comes to the idea to make the media believe that she is dating Wade, all bets were off. The lines get blurred of course.

I liked how the main characters didn’t beat around the bush. They’re both young and they had this maturity, the experience, knowing that when you know what you want, you go for it. The chemistry was excellent, I swooned, smiled a lot. And Wade is smoking hot, so definitely a plus.

The characters aren’t perfect, they aren’t hiding either, they were so natural together. I was just going into the flow.

This book highlighted how important family and love is, that even when you become famous, you stay strong, united and have each other’s back. Seeing some of my favorite characters reunited warmed my heart, I was so glad to see them one more time. I wish I had more pages, because I felt that Wade and Sydney have so much more to tell.

If you haven’t read the One Week Girlfriend series, I’m sure you would.
