The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Monica Murphy's "Four Years Later (One Week Girlfriend # 4)".


New Adult bestselling author Monica Murphy winds up her sensational series with this sexy story of two college kids with nothing in common but a bunch of baggage and a burning attraction.

Over. That about sums up everything in my life. Suspended from my college football team and forced to cut back my hours at The District bar because of my crappy grades, I can’t keep turning to my sister, Fable, and her pro-football playing husband, Drew, to bail me out. I just can’t seem to find my own way. Weed and sex are irresistible temptations—and it’s messed up that I secretly hand over money to our junkie mom. A tutor is the last thing I want right now—until I get a look at her.

Chelsea is not my type at all. She’s smart and totally shy. I’m pretty sure she’s even a virgin. But when she gives me the once over with those piercing blue eyes, I’m really over. But in a different way. I won’t deny her ass is killer, but it’s her brain and the way she seems to crave love—like no one’s ever given her any—that make me want her more than any girl I’ve ever met. But what would someone as seemingly together as her ever see in a screwed up guy like me?

Blog Tour Review: Joanne Rushton

"Four Years Later" is the fourth book in the "One Week Girlfriend Series" and Monica Murphy didn't disappoint. I loved each and every book in this sweet, romantic series and this one was definitely no exception. 

In the previous books, we saw Drew and Fable and Jenn and Colin all find their happy ever afters and in "Four Years Later" it was Owen's turn.

In this book Owen was no longer the sweet little kid I'd grown to know and love. Hell no, he was all grown up and he was a bad boy...yup you read right. He drank excessively, smoked weed, slept around and was also close to being thrown off the football team!!! My how things can change in the space of four years. 

"I'm here and the three of them are there. Drew and Fable and Autumn. It used to 
be Drew and Fable and Owen. Sometimes I hate that. Growing up, moving on. Being alone." 

My heart broke a little bit for Owen. I felt so sorry for him once I discovered what had happened to him and why he had resorted to his bad boy ways. Drew and Fable had moved away and Owen was now living with his friends, unfortunately his awful Mum was also back on the scene. He was struggling to cope with his Mum's demands without the support of his older sister and everything just started to rapidly go downhill from there. Once Fable found out about Owen's plummeting college grades she stepped in to help thank god. Things needed to change so Fable insisted on Owen getting some extra tuition to help improve his grades and get him back on the football team.

Chelsea was pretty, kind, clever, and ambitious... and a good girl who chose to study hard rather than get involved with boys... you see boys were a distraction she didn't need... until Owen of course who was the biggest distraction of them all!!!

With Chelsea's support Owen worked hard to get his life back on track. But the more time these two spent together, the closer they became.... just what I like to see! 

"She's mine. She might not know it yet, but I can't stand the thought of letting her go. 
The nameless, faceless girls-they're things of my past. Banished forever. 
I don't want to be with anyone else. I just want to be with her. She belongs with 
me and I need to prove that I'm worthy of her. That I love her. Because I do. " 

I won't say anymore about this delicious story. You'll have to read it for yourself but you won't be disappointed. Chelsea and Owen's story is a beautiful one, it was lovely watching their love grow for each other and see Owen find the happiness that he so truly deserved.

Once again, I loved catching up with one of my favourite book couple's, Drew and Fable, however, I was left a little sad that we didn't get to see more of Jenn and Colin. I felt that their story had only just begun when we left them in "Three Broken Promises" but yet there was only a small mention of them in this book. So if you read this Monica, please can we have another Jenn and Colin story? 

I fell in love with this series right from the beginning and I would say that if you haven't read any of the books then you are truly missing out. Monica has written such a great series, full of adorable characters and beautiful happy ever afters. Each story will melt your heart. 

"We're lucky, Fable and I. On paper, we should have been a disaster. At certain points 
in our lives, we were. The fucked-up siblings with the even more fucked-up mother 
and absent fathers. We should be losers. In jail. No jobs. No education. Nothing. We'd been
 told that time and time again growing up. Now look at us. We proved them wrong." 

"Four Years Later" gets 4.5 happy ever after hearts from me!
