Drew + Fable Forever by Monica Murphy

Release Day Launch Drew +Fable



Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original short story that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle. 

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even accepting responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, yet again, he's found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for? 

Reality. Except now the honeymoon’s over. Drew's football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him constantly. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so. . . . 


“We should check out Ocean Avenue tomorrow,” Drew whispers close to my ear, amusement tingeing his deep voice. “What? Are you serious?” Even though I’ve come to terms with being here, it doesn’t mean I want to linger and make it a serious vacation. Besides, Drew needs to get back home so he can resume practice. “Well yeah, remember the spot where we kissed?” His eyes are warm as they search my face, filled with so much love I feel my heart swell. “Yes,” I whisper achingly. “Of course I remember.” “I want to go back there.” He tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, his index finger lingering on my skin. “I want to kiss you again in that little alley and remember how wet we were from the rain. How nervous I was. I was scared you might reject me.” I’d felt the same way. We’d dealt with much of the same feelings and fears and hadn’t even known it. “I want to take you to that store where you got the dress that just about killed me and buy you whatever you want,” he continues, his fingers drifting across my jaw. My eyes flutter closed as memories rush back at me. “I want to sit outside the dressing room and have you come out to show me every single thing you’re trying on.” That he remembers all the little details sends a thrill of pleasure spiraling to the very depths of my soul. “And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you’ll send me a text that says marshmallow. Though if you don’t that’s okay because I’ll send you one instead.” He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. “Because we made a deal. Whenever we see or hear that word, the other comes running. I’ll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that.”   

Selene's Review

4 "It's about the together" smooches

I have to start by saying just how much I love Fable.  She is one of my absolute favorite heroines.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her in the first two books of the series, One Week Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend.  And on the off chance you are reading this review and you have not read those books, YOU MUST!!!!!

Moving on ....

I won't lie, I was a little scared to pick up Drew + Fable Forever.  Lately, I've read several sequels that have been, well, disappointing.  I've come to realize that there are few things worse than a book you LOVE being following by a book that blows.  And I loved this series so much. I was terrified that Drew and Fable's "reality" would be a let down.

Stupid me.

Drew + Fable Forever gives us a quick glimpse (it's a novella) of Drew and Fable's future after he joins the NFL.  He's the new starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, a first round draft pick at that.  Drew and Fable are the new celebrity couple in town and everyone wants to know more about them.  Along with the pressures of Drew travelling, Fable caring for Owen, their new found celebrity status, and other major life events, Drew and Fable's relationship is strained and tested.
Her words render me silent as I absorb them, shock coursing through me, leaving me cold.  She's asking for so much, it's not even funny.  I don't know what to say, how to act.  Loving me and supporting me is a sacrifice.  Is that how she really feels?  -  Drew
A few things never change though.  Fable's love for Drew never wavers.
"Your unconditional love, baby.  You never backed down.  You never gave up on me.  Ever.  And I needed that.  I was so screwed up but you never let that stop you, thank God."  - Drew
And MARSHMALLOW is still their thing!  <3

The Drew of One Week Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend is long gone.  He's been replaced by a man worthy of Fable's love, not to mention a man who is sexier than ever!  Drew has moved on from his past and is now a confident and sexy (yes, it's worth saying that he's sexy twice!) man at peace and in hopelessly in love with his wife.
My heart, my everything melts at seeing that smile.  I remember when it was hard earned.  Now that smile always comes so easily...  - Fable
