Review: Just One Week by Alice Gaines

Just One Week


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…


This is an interesting read. The story is engaging and I loved the characters. I recommend it all readers who enjoy a good contemporary romance.

For eight years Michelle has avoided coming back to her home town. She doesn't have many happy memories of this place and a few that she has involves Alex. But the last time they were together something happened to make her run away and never look back.. until now.. It's Alex's parents anniversary and since they are like parents to her too she must attend the party. Not to worry though, it's just one week. She can handle one week of Alex's company without giving away the fact that after so many years she still feels hurt and betrayed by his words.

Alex has been waiting for an opportunity like this. He must make amends. It was his fault that Mickey never came home and now it's time that he clears the air. He just needs her to listen him out and then may be she will forgive him. This time he doesn't want her to go away for so long. He had missed her.

So now that they have been thrown back together things will get interesting. No matter how hard they try they cannot deny the attraction or the love they feel for each other. But will they be able to overcome their differences is another question entirely...

The book is quite good, the only thing that annoyed me a little was all the intrigue author created about "eight years ago" but in the end explanation was quite enough for Michelle to leave the way she did. I wanted more to understand what exactly had happened. But in any case it was a good read. <3
