      The story was ok. Sweet plot. Older brother's best friend. Nothing out of this world, but a comfortable read. Honestly though, I just didn't really buy into it. Though complete, the flow felt choppy. Michelle didn't seem to know her own mind. I got over the push and pull, hot and cold thing she and Alex had going pretty quickly. I really like the family. They were supportive, warm, and welcoming. The love scenes were good. Keeping it short. Safety: No OW/OM/Sharing. No rape or abuse. PS: If she' [...]

      3 Together at Last StarsFrom the time they were kids, Michelle has always been just a little in love with Alex. As she grew into a brilliant teenager, those feelings continued to grow. The problem? Alex is her brother’s best friend and he’s made it clear with humiliating results that he only thinks of her as a little sister.“You always did know when I was up to something.”“And you always knew I’d be watching over you.”Fast forward eight years and Michelle’s returning home for the [...]

      Just One Week was fun. And entertaining. And true to its characters. But it didn't wow me. The only thing that was a little different from most other books with the brother's friend trope is that Alex was also Michelle's friend. His family was her family in every way that counted. So, Michelle not coming home for eight years didn't feel right. Because what happened to her teenage heart happened between her and Alex, not his family. The family that practically raised her so that didn't ring real [...]

      3.5 Stars!This was a cute short story about a second chance love. Michelle and her brother, Kyle didn't have the greatest home life. Michelle's father seemed to take great pleasure in cutting her down. Kyle's best friend Alex and his family took them both into the family showing them the love they should have received from their own parents. This story takes place 8 years after Michelle graduated from high school and left town for good. Michelle fell in love with Alex when they were kids. She id [...]

      Happy. That's how this book made me feel. Delighted, really. Because Just One Week was just soorable. I mean, it was sexy, too. But mostly, this quick read was a sweet, butterfly-inducing romance. And that's why I enjoyed it so damn much. I wanted light. Maybe even a little fluffy. Which I got. Michelle and Alex's story was one of second chances, with a dash of unrequited love. It gently tackled self-esteem—or the lack thereof—and how words can have a lasting effect, which maybe gave it some [...]

      A new-to-me-author with another his best friend’s little sis trope, and not one I found much different from a ton of others. Lured by the hook of a “football player” as a main character, along with the 99-cent sale price, I one-clicked. Okay, I’ll also admit to really liking that hot pink cover with the model clutching the football tightly to her side. Confession time: I’m a sucker for a football romance every single time. However, there wasn't much of the sport included except for as [...]

      DNF at 48%.I'm sorry, I tried more than once with this novel but I found myself grinding my teeth once too often.Michelle Dennis is an academic on the verge of getting a faculty position at a prominent University. She is also on the way to her brother's best friend, Alex Stafford's, parents' wedding anniversary party, days celebrating with a family she has been actively avoiding for eight years after Alex humiliated her.My hackles raised when Alex met Michelle at the airport and calmly announced [...]

      Rating 3.5*Looking for a cute, sweet, second chance romance? This is probably just what you need. Eight years ago Michelle Dennis had a huge crush on the best friend of her older brother, Alex Stafford. Eight years ago he came to her rescue then said some hateful things. Two weeks later she went off to college and they've never seen each other since. What makes that even worse is that his parents were like parents to Michelle and her brother, Kyle, often providing a safe haven away from their ow [...]

      3 starsSuper cute and super sweet story about second chance love/brother's best friend rolled all into one.Michelle returns home after 8 years of being away become a PHD/professor. She is a smart cookie. Michelle always has a thing for Alex, her bother's best friend and NFL star. This was a lighthearted tale of a nerdy girl who falls for the jock only to have her heart crushed by him 8 years earlier. Since then, she hasn't come back home to visit (I don't know why she would have because she is n [...]

      The prodigal daughter returns home after an 8-year rift with a man whom she'd loved and now that she's turned into a bombshell (as well as as intellectual), the man who's pushed her away sits up and notice. Needing to score away the hurt, Michelle Dennis decides that using Alex Stafford for his body after his rejection is the best ploy. What follows is a predictable trajectory of realising that sex can't come with no strings especially with a man with whom she shares history, even if he's always [...]

      Michelle and Alex haven't seen each other in eight years, ever since Alex made a big mistake that he couldn't take back, hurting Michelle in the process. Back together for his parent's anniversary, a couple who had a large hand in raising Michelle and her brother Kyle, it's the perfect time for Alex to own up to his failings and try to fix things with Michelle. They were friends once - can they recapture that friendship, and maybe now that they are both older and wiser, own up to the depth of th [...]

      3 friends to lovers stars. He's her brother's best friend who ripped her apart, forcing her to flee eight years ago. She's the one he always wanted and never could have, angrily and jealously forcing her to flee. Eight years is a long time for something like this to simmer, isn't it? Well, they say time can heal all but sometimes it doesn't. That's where this book starts and how it weaves its story.I wasn't in love with the story because I just felt a slight disconnect. It is probably just the a [...]

      I liked this book. It was just what I needed right now, a cute fluffy story to lose track of time in. I needed a book that was an easy breezy read and Just One Week fit the bill. I read this story in one night because I couldn't put it down. The story is not some new concept that is going to blow down the book world, but it is cute and the chemistry between the main characters was explosive. If you are like me and looking for a something that is sweet with a guaranteed happy ending then I sugges [...]

      Brothers best friend! Michelle has always had a thing for Alex! Well, 8 years ago. He broke her heart. She finally comes back after all that time to her like mom and dads anniversary. Her new plan is to make a play at Alex. Just sex she says. But something happens along the way. Everyone is playing matchmaker, well, except her brother. He doesn't knows. Or denial. Lol. Love it!! Hot sex and sweet romance.

    17. Heather andrews on said:

      I really liked the responses Alex had to Michelle at times, “like it?” Oh, baby. He’d take that dress off her later, and then he’d show her how much he “liked” it" I really liked this book, Alex was amazing and Michelle was one smart cookie.

      DNF at 22%.I received this book from Netgalley for my honest opinion, but in keeping with my personal policy, I will not rank or review a book I did not finish.

      This is the first ever Alice Gaines book that I've read, and unfortunately I didn't love it as much as I thought I was going to. Most of the time, I love a good friends to lovers story, but this one didn't work for me.Early on the the story we learn that Michelle had feelings for Alex when they were teenagers, but he rejected her and said hurtful things to her. She left a week after the incident and hadn't been home in 8 years because she was still hurt by that night, but has to return for his p [...]

      4 stars This was such a sweet read. While at times I found both the hero and heroine to be absurd and stuck in their head, I truly loved the way everything went. Michelle, or Mickey as everyone back home knows her, is headed home for the first time in 8 years. She's excited and nervous all at the same time. Excited to see her family and nervous to see the man who was the cause of her running away for so long. Embarrassment will do that to you. Alex is the said guy. He's seen his errors and wants [...]

    21. Jaime Fiction Fangirls Book Review on said:

      This was a light, fun read that was low on angst heavy on the sweet. The attraction between Alex and Michelle was clear and present from the very beginning but their history was a bit of a mystery that slowly unraveled throughout the book. I like that we got bits and pieces of the last night they saw each other 8 years prior, but I wonder if it would have stirred my emotions more if I had read it as one complete flashback. I love the storyline and the interaction between all of the characters, e [...]

    22. Bette Hansen on said:

      Super fun, cute read. Low on angst and high on fun makes this an excellent light read. It's a second chance story and brother's best friend story rolled into one. I really loved the family dynamics and could easily see how the younger Michelle would have had a huge crush on Alex. Even though at times I just wanted to yell at Michelle to get over it already, I did enjoy her character. Then there is Alex who is just all kinds of yummy! There is obvious chemistry between Michelle and Alex. While th [...]

      ***ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for honest review.I'm a sucker for a BFF/younger sister romance but I didn't love this one. What I didn't like:1. It took forever for me as a reader to know what happened to the two MCs years ago. Frustrating.2. Once I did find out what happened the h's reaction and grudge seemed a slight overreaction IMHO. One minute she hates him and won't talk to him at all; next she's planning to seduce him. I was like "WTH just happened?! Did I miss a chapter?"

    24. Chanel on said:

      This book was average in may ways with two concurrent typical plots -- the Scholar and the Athlete and In love with your best friend's sister. Michelle returns to her hometown year. The first person she encounters is Alex. Alex is her brother's best friend, and the reason she left town. Michelle run out of town, never looking back many years ago after an incident with Alex; I have to admit, I did not guess correctly regarding situation. Michelle is welcomed home with open arms by Alex's parents, [...]

    25. Kortney Allen on said:

      I genuinely enjoyed this story! But overall our main guy just got on my nerves. They made things way over complicated with the underlying storyline that could have solved a lot of things if they just talked to one another. But I still found the book good for a nice little afternoon read.

      **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Just one Week is an adult contemporary romance by Alice Gaines. I love a good brother's best friend forbidden romance, and this is a really cute one. (Plus, the main character's name is Michelle, so I twas easy for me to put myself in her shoes and imagine me in her place. Just sayin') Just one Week is told in dual narrative between Michelle and Alex, her brother's best friend, and her childhood protector. But they had a huge fa [...]

      This is a great story about the exceptionally bright and now knock out Michelle who is headed home after an 8 year absence for her brothers wedding, and Alex the NFL player, handsome, Michelle's high school crush and brothers best friend. Michelle and her brother spent much of their young lives at theStafford house growing up, their homelife was not a happy one and the Strongs provided that warm comfortable environment for their children as well as Kyle and Michelle. We know Michelle leaves town [...]
