Series: The Rules
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sydney Walker’s new job is perfect. As the live-in nanny to the most famous quarterback in the NFL and his beautiful wife, she couldn’t have it any better. Their kids are adorable. Her bosses are more than generous. Plus, there are hot football players at the house all the time. Life can’t get much better than this.

Until her life turns into an absolute nightmare. The media is abuzz with rumors that she and her boss Drew Callahan are having a torrid affair. Everyone knows the truth—except the public. So Drew’s wife Fable comes up with the perfect idea.

She creates a fake relationship between Sydney and one of the rookie players on Drew’s team. Wade Knox is forever indebted to Drew and Fable and readily agrees to the set up. Pretending to be in a romantic relationship with the hot nanny for a week—how hard can it be?

Crazy how it only takes one week for two people to fall head over heels in love…

(This mash-up new adult romance features characters from both the One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.)

My Review 

To all the fans of the One Week Girlfriend who were dying for a Wade Knox story, it’s here! This books actually brings two worlds together because Sydney is from The Rules series. 

Sydney and Wade meet when she is hired to be Drew and Fable’s nanny. Wade is now playing professional football with Drew and is still close to the family. 

There is an immediate attraction between Sydney and Wade, but Sydney has some secrets and issues that keep her from moving forward with her interest in Wade. Wade isn’t looking for any distractions either since his career is currently on the line and he needs to be 100% focused. However, when the tabloids manipulate a relationship between Drew and Sydney’s they decide a distraction is needed. The perfect diversion, to create a fake relationship between Wade and Sydney. 

If you read the One Week Girlfriend series you know this plot line sounds familiar, but it just worked between these two especially with it falling into the same series. I thought this was such a fun and cute story. I especially loved how we got to see more of Drew and Fable, it was so nice to jump back into one of my first fav couples. If you love this series I think you will love it! It is definitely more like the OWG series versus the Rules, but worth reading if you are looking for something cute!
