Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original 40,000-word novella that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle.

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even taking responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, once again, he’s found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for?

Reality. Now the honeymoon’s over. Drew’s football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined our life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him all the time. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so. . . .


The Short of It....

Drew + Fable Forever was perfection. Simple as that.

I'm not going to tease or bore you with what may/may not occur in this story. Big things happen. Amazing things happen. Every single moment was gorgeous.

I don't need to describe how reading it made me feel, other than to say I read this with a smile on my face and tears in my eyes the entire time. I am thrilled Murphy wrote this novella. I am happy that we got more time with Drew and Fable. I am thrilled and honored to have read it.

Monica Murphy has stated that she wrote Drew + Fable Forever for her fans. As a "Thank You", a love letter. As a fan who considers Drew + Fable to be a favorite, I take that love letter to heart. And I say "Thank You" to Monica Murphy. Thank you for the experiences.  Thank you for writing for creating this broken boy and the girl who was strong enough to stand beside him, to help him battle the darkness. Thank you for writing a story that stands apart from all the rest. Thank you for Marshmallow. Thank you for Drew + Fable.
Favorite Quotes:

  "And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you'll send me a text that says 'marshmallow'. Though if you don't, that's okay, because I'll send you one instead." He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. "Because we made a deal. Whenever we see or hear that word, the other comes running. I'll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that."


“We should check out Ocean Avenue tomorrow,” Drew whispers close to my ear, amusement tingeing his deep voice.
“What? Are you serious?” Even though I’ve come to terms with being here, it doesn’t mean I want to linger and make it a serious vacation. Besides, Drew needs to get back home so he can resume practice.
“Well yeah, remember the spot where we kissed?” His eyes are warm as they search my face, filled with so much love I feel my heart swell.
“Yes,” I whisper achingly. “Of course I remember.”
“I want to go back there.” He tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, his index finger lingering on my skin. “I want to kiss you again in that little alley and remember how wet we were from the rain. How nervous I was. I was scared you might reject me.”
I’d felt the same way. We’d dealt with much of the same feelings and fears and hadn’t even known it.
“I want to take you to that store where you got the dress that just about killed me and buy you whatever you want,” he continues, his fingers drifting across my jaw. My eyes flutter closed as memories rush back at me. “I want to sit outside the dressing room and have you come out to show me every single thing you’re trying on.”
That he remembers all the little details sends a thrill of pleasure spiraling to the very depths of my soul.
“And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you’ll send me a text that says marshmallow. Though if you don’t that’s okay because I’ll send you one instead.” He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. “Because we made a deal.
