Drew + Fable Forever (One Week Girlfriend #3.5) [Drew & Fable] by Monica Murphy

After the previous two books that in my eyes were kind of disappointing I didn't know what to expect but since it's a short novella and we return to Fable and Drew I decided to give it a go. 

The first four chapters (which I should say are a THIRD of this short novella) were boring as hell, soooo sappy I almost died of sugar overdose. It was all about them getting married. I kept waiting for SOMETHING to happen or intrigue me but it was like a summary of the relationship from both their views (NOT necessary) then sappiness galore of how they love each other SOOOO much and want to have sex all the god damn time. Everything was so pink and totally overdone. 

Then when I FINALLY got the the fifth chapter and Drew and Fable were away from one another (she home, he at a game) I got to the conclusion I just couldn't care less about them, their problems and what's going on between them. They are an established couple even if they will have a fight or two, even if they are going to face a bit of hard times, there is nothing that really draws me to read this. So sadly this is another DNF (at 35%).

I WILL read the last one but not right now. I'll read other things I have planned for this month and we'll see when I get to Owen's book. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and while it had a few loose ends that were taken care of in the second installment I feel that if the first book was a bit longer they could have handled it all. There was NO NEED for Jen's story, no need for a wedding and hearing about their life post the wedding and I"m not really sure there's a need for Owen to get his own book. Feels like it's one of those series that were built on the success of the first in the series, not one that was planned as a series - and it shows!
