Review: Drew + Fable Forever (Drew + Fable #3.5) by Monica Murphy

Posted on 18 January, 2014 by in Monica Murphy, Review / 0 comments


SynopsisMonica 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.”

ReviewChristine’s 4.5 STAR Review!

OMG Drew and Fable!  Forever!  Sighhh……..

I’m so proud of them and have loved watching them grow and mature since ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND.  They are in such a good place in their lives now.  They are like 2 missing puzzle pieces that just fit and watching them get married and move forward in their lives has me so emotional!

Marshmellow….oh I will never think of that word without remembering and thinking of Drew and his poems to Fable.

This couple has been through it all – they rescued each other when they found one another and this is a solid love, a real, true and beautiful love.

This novella was like an extended epilogue.  It pushes their life forward with football contracts, marriage, fame and finally parents.  I’m so proud that I want to cry…and I did!  A lot!

I firmly believe that God gives you what you can handle and Drew and Fable have done a pretty good job at handling it all….this is the perfect ending for a perfect couple and I will admit that I will miss them forever…they have a special place in my heart!

Thank you Monica Murphy for giving us Drew + Fable!!! <3
