Review: Just One Week by Alice Gaines

Just One Week
By: Alice Gaines
Release Date: September 12, 2016

Her brother’s best friend is not only the hottest man Michelle Dennis has ever seen, he’s the reason she left town eight years ago. Of course he’s the one waiting at the airport. Worse, he made sure they’re staying in the same house.
Alex Stafford is expecting to pick up his friend’s kid sister, not a full-fledged bombshell. He was planning to apologize for their past, but the feelings he had years ago come roaring back…and this time, there’s no denying them.
Keeping his hands off is a test he’s bound to fail—especially when they’re stuck in close quarters. But falling in love with Michelle, living in her world, isn’t an option for a guy like him. And remembering that will save them both a lot of heartache…
I’ve always enjoyed the classic story of girl being in love with her brother’s best friend.  Hey things happen and it’s always a possibility, and one that happens quite often.  Of course it happens but usually it’s much unrequited, but then there are those times when it is requited.  This was a lovely story about two people who had a bit of a falling out when they were younger and getting back together many years later.  It’s sweet and the author did a great job.

We meet Michelle as she is on her way back to a place she didn’t think she would go back to, especially after the fight she had with her brother’s best friend, Alex.  Oh to profess ones love and have it shut down, it’s tough.  But of course she’s thrown into the ring with Alex right away and right off the gate.  There is some tension, but a plan forms to seduce him.  We all know how plans tend to work out don’t we?

Alex is still kicking himself for the way he acted way back when but he knows he’s going to make everything right.  He always felt like because of his learning disability he was never worthy of someone like Michelle.  But it’s hard because no one knows about this and he likes to keep things to himself.  Which is never a good idea by the way.

I don’t want to give too much away but this was a very quick read and kept you very interested.  There were some really steamy scenes in this book and there were just emotions that made you want them to work out in the end.  It was cute and quick and fun.  Loved the sense of family that they all have in this book.  Great read. 

I received this book from NetGalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
