After disappearing in the middle of the night, Fable has had it waiting for Drew to come back. She gets a new job with a better pay and begins to move on with her life. Drew on the other hand is working really hard on getting over his past. Certain the Fable has moved on by then he went out with his team mates to celebrate the birthday of one of the team members. Their paths cross and their plans go out when they are in the same room again.
This book is a direct continuation of the 1st book. I feel like they could have just been one book but I digress.
We get to see a more realistic relationship between Drew and Fable in this book. Though the stunt that Drew pulled at the end of the last book and the beginning of this book annoyed me a little, it’s understandable after what he’s been through. How quickly Fable forgives him is a little odd given her background. However, they do have their fights which stems from her inability to trust him for a while.
The small town is expanded in this novel to incorporate more characters who will eventually be featured in their own novels. I still love how imperfect the characters are and how realistic it makes them. It’s a nice quick read, but still a warning that it’s not for all audiences.
When Draw needs a fake girlfriend to bring home from his father’s house for spring break so her turns to Fable. Fable works in a bar just to make ends meet and take care of her little brother. When Drew offers her a job to be his fake girlfriend the money is too good to pass up. Though she knows that it’s only her history that drew him too her, but who is she to say no to money that could help her take care of her brother. Little did they know that these two broken people would help heal each other.
This book was a little odd but enjoyable. The two main characters are imperfect in just the right ways, and both come from very different but equally screwed up backgrounds. The chemistry between the two main characters is quick and a little rocky. Mind you, throw anyone into the life that Drew’s grown up in and anyone will have issues with some social interactions.
I feel like Fable managed to do what anyone in her situation would do for Drew. The end was a little annoying and I almost felt like the 2nd book could have simply been added on to the end of this book instead.
Regardless, this was a nice quick read but be warned that this book is not for all audiences.
