New Releases: Married 'til Monday

Today's review is on Denise Hunter's newest book, Married 'til Monday. I just recently came across this author but already I'm hooked on her books.

Book Title: Married 'til Monday
Publication Date: June 9, 2015
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Description:
(Note: Married 'til Monday is the fourth book in the Chapel Springs Romance series.)

With a big anniversary party in the works for his ex-wife’s parents, Ryan has just one weekend to play Abby’s husband . . . and win back the woman of his dreams.

Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive two-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.

Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.

Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Summer Harbor, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:
To start off I just want to say that Ryan was my very favorite character in this book. Like everyone, he's not perfect but he was pretty close to it. Abby was a great character to read about too. Although, I found myself wanting to reach through the book and shake some sense into her. Because she was so hurt in her past she wouldn't let herself trust Ryan or anyone else for that matter. It's always easier to see the whole picture when you're looking from afar so I made myself wait patiently until she finally began to heal. If I were in Ryan's shoes I don't think I could have been so patient and forgiving though.

I think what I enjoyed most about this book was Ryan's perseverance. Even though it seemed impossible to reach through to Abby's heart Ryan knew it was what God wanted him to do and stuck with it.

I really enjoyed Married 'til Monday. It was really well written, exciting, romantic, thought-provoking, and overall totally wonderful. I think it would make a great movie... :)

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.com
