Where I Got It: Barnes and Noble
Synopsis: Temporary. That’s the word I’d use to describe my life right now. I’m temporarily working double shifts—at least until I can break free. I’m temporarily raising my little brother—since apparently our actual mother doesn’t give a crap about either of us. And I always end up as nothing but the temporary girlfriend—the flavor of the week for every guy who’s heard the rumor that I give it up so easily.
At least Drew Callahan, college football legend and local golden boy, is upfront about it. He needs someone to play the part of his girlfriend for one week. In exchange for cash. As if that’s not weird enough, ever since he brought me into his world, nothing really makes sense. Everyone hates me. Everyone wants something from him. And yet the only thing Drew seems to want is... me.
I don’t know what to believe anymore. Drew is sweet, sexy, and hiding way more secrets than I am. All I know is, I want to be there for him—permanently.

I read this on December 13th 2013.
I've heard great things about this book from various reviewers on goodreads. The day before I went to Barnes and Nobles, I found it on goodreads and I wanted to read it instantly. I actually really loved Drew. At first I didn't but when I read his point of view I instantly fell in love.Drew and Fable went through many things apart and together. They found comfort in each other after meeting each other not 7 days ago. I thought it was strange that they only knew each other for about 7 days and, yet, they talk to one another as if they've been friends their entire lives. I thought that was good but I constantly reminded myself that they only knew each other for like 2 days.
It was a great read and I recommend it to readers who love NA and romance. One Week Girlfriend is filled to the max with drama, you'll be addicted!
