B.O.T.W.: Monica Murphy - One week girlfriend / Iubita mea pentru o saptamana

Hello.
When I started reading this book, I thought that it will be something simple, nothing too complicated, something new...
Overall, the story is nice.
It's about a college boy/football player named Drew and a waitress named Fable. He has to go home for Thanksgiving for a whole week, to see his father and step-mom and go to the grave of his half-sister, who died a few years back. But things are not that simple with Drew and his step-mom. To make sure that she leaves him alone and his dad doesn't think that he is gay, he thinks that the perfect plan is to "hire" Fable as his girlfriend. For 3000 dollars, Fable says yes to his proposal; mostly because she has to take care of her brother, Owen, who's 13 and her mom, which is a drunk and spends all her money on booze and guys. Since the second they stepped on the family property, Adele, the step-mom, treated Fable like she is just a joke and a replacement of her. Yes, you read right. A replacement of her, because we find out later that she is one of the reasons Drew avoids his home. The boy is somehow a "copy" of Christian Grey, having his dark secrets, being used by an older woman, in this case, Adele. Later on, we find out what the problem is : he thinks that he is guilty for his sisters drowning. But also a few years back, Adele married Drew's dad and tried so hard to conceive. Unable to get pregnant, she seduced her Drew and got pregnant with him. And this is how, Vanessa, his little sister, is in fact his daughter. In this one week, Drew and Fable fell in love with each other and now they try to get over his dark past and move on.
Will they succeed? We'll find out next week, on part 2.


The book is worth reading just because Drew and Fable are such a lovely couple and every day nice things happen between the two of them...



Hello.
Cand m-am apucat de citit aceasta carte, m-am gandit ca va fi ceva usor de citit, nimic prea complicat, ceva nou, diferit putin...
In principiu, povestea e frumoasa.

In carte e vorba despre un student/fotbalist pe nume Drew si de o chelnerita pe nume Fable. El trebuie sa mearga sa isi petreaca Ziua Recunostintei acasa, cu tatal lui si mama lui vitrega, Adele si sa viziteze mormantul surorii lui mai mici, Vanessa, care a murit acum 3 ani. Dar lucrurile intre el si mama lui vitrega sunt cam complicate. Asa ca se hotaraste sa o "angajeze" pe Fable sa fie iubita lui pentru o saptamana, cat trebuia sa stea acasa. Pentru ca primeste 3000 de dolari, Fable accepta, pentru ca ea e cea care are grija de fratele ei mai mic, Owen, care are doar 13 ani si de mama ei betiva, care isi cheltuie toti banii pe bautura si iubiti.
Din secunda in care au pasit pe proprietatea familiei, Adele se poarta cu Fable ca si cand ar fi ultimul gunoi de pe lume si ca nu e nimic altceva decat un inlocuitor al ei in viata fiului sau vitreg. Da, un inlocuitor al ei, ati citit bine. Asta pentru ca ea este unul din motivele pentru care Drew nu mai vine acasa. El este oarecum, o "copie" a lui Christian Grey, care a fost implicat in relatii cu o femeie mai in varsta, in acest caz, Adele. Mai incolo in carte aflam motivul real pentru care Drew evita casa: se simte vinovat pentru moartea surorii lui, pentru ca nu a stat cu ochii pe ea si a cazut in piscina. Dar si faptul ca Adele a profitat de inocenta lui si l-a folosit pentru a ramane insarcinata. Da, mai tarziu aflam ca Vanessa era, de fapt, fiica lui. Greu de acceptat pentru Drew, dar acesta era adevarul - adevar pe care il afla acum, la 5 ani de la nasterea ei si 3 de la moartea acesteia. Partea frumoasa a acestei povesti, este ca in aceasta saptamana, Drew si Fable s-au indragostit si acum incearca sa treaca peste trecutul urat si negru si sa isi continue relatia.
Vor putea face asta? O sa aflam saptamana viitoare.


Oricum, cartea merita citita pentru ca in fiecare zi, se intampla lucruri frumoase intre Drew si Fable, sunt o pereche atat de frumoasa...

  3. Pare frumoasa si interesanta. Sunt curioasa, tatal lui stia de relatia pe care a avut-o el cu Adele?
