I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Drew and Fable and for you others out there like me...I have a very special surprise for you!!

Next year seems so far away, so I wheedled a little sneak peek for all of my readers!

Without any further ado...:

Second Chance Boyfriend
by Monica Murphy
Publication Date: November 5th, 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

From breakout New Adult author Monica Murphy comes the exhilarating conclusion to Drew and Fable’s story—the star-crossed young romance that began in One Week Girlfriend.

Lost. Everything in my life can be summed up by that one sickening word. My football coach blames me for our season-ending losses. So does the rest of the team. I wasted two whole months drowning in my own despair, like a complete loser. And I lost my girlfriend—Fable Maguire, the only girl who ever mattered—because I was afraid that being with me would only hurt her.

But now I realize that I’m the one who’s truly lost without her. And even though she acts like she’s moved on and everything’s fine, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. I know her too well. She’s so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is be there to help her . . . to hold her . . . to love her.

I just need her to give me one more chance. We may be lost without each other, but together, we’re destined to find a love that lasts forever.

And now....the EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from the upcoming Drew and Fable novella, plus a little note from Monica:
So here, in all of its unedited, never before seen glory, is a moment in time between Drew + Fable from the upcoming novella DREW AND FABLE FOREVER, which is scheduled to release January 2014.

I hope you enjoy it.



* * * * * * * EXCERPT * * * * * *

“I still can’t believe we did it.” I watch him, waiting for his reaction, needing to see his reaction. I shade my eyes against the too bright sun, studying his handsome face. Last night at sunset we stood on a beach on the other side of the island and repeated sacred vows to each other while the sun slowly melted into the Pacific. I shed a few tears, overwhelmed at the importance of that moment and I never cry.

Drew cried too. Nothing major, just a few tears sliding down his cheeks as he said those solemn words of love and promises of until death do us part, his intense gaze never leaving mine.

It’s a moment I’ll never forget. Etched into my memory for all time.

We’re freaking married now. My legal name is Fable Callahan. Drew Callahan is my husband.

Wild, huh?

He leans back in the sand, his arm sliding off my shoulders and I immediately miss his touch. “Oh, I can believe we did it. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now.”

“Do what?” I turn to look at him, my mouth going dry at the sight before me.

Drew all sprawled on the warm sand, leaning back on his elbows, wearing low riding swim trunks and nothing else, all those beautiful muscles on display. My gaze roves over him hungrily, remembering all the hot honeymoon sex we shared last night. His longish dark hair flutters and waves with the gentle breeze that washes over us, and his eyes are covered by yet another pair of expensive sunglasses he’ll probably lose. Because he’s so good at that, losing things.

Except for me. He couldn’t lose me if he tried.

“Make you mine in every sense of the word.” He smiles and I smile in return, my body trembling at his words. He sounds so serious despite the smile. I love it when he gets possessive. I might sound like a freak, but it arouses me like nothing else.

Well, everything Drew does arouses me. He can stand at the sink and brush his teeth in the morning and I want to jump him.

Of course, I want to jump him. Because in the morning when he’s brushing his teeth, he’s usually standing there either in just his boxer briefs or a pair of sweats that hang so low on his hips I swear I can almost see everything the boy has to offer.

And oh my, can he offer a lot.

Shaking my head, I drop my gaze, hoping he can’t read my mind. I have it so bad for my husband it’s crazy.

“I like the way you say that,” I admit, turning away from him so he can’t see my face, my flushed with embarrassment cheeks. All this thinking of Drew brushing his teeth and everything else that comes with it is making me hot. For him. “That I’m yours.”

“You are,” he says simply. “And I’m yours too. Now we’re legally together. Nothing can tear us apart.”

“Together.” I dip my index finger into the sand and make a giant heart, then draw a D + F in the center. Like the matching tattoos we share on the inside of our wrists.

He’s suddenly there, right beside me, pushing me so I have no choice but to lie on the sand. Drew comes over me, his face in mine, his body pressing me deeper into the warm yet damp sand. “Forever,” he whispers just before he kisses me, so deeply I have to wrap my arm around his neck and grip his hair for fear I’ll melt into nothing because of his fiery lips and persuasive tongue.
