Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.

But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.

Love her…

If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.

The minute I finished One Week Girlfriend, I had, had, had to get my hands on SCB - I nearly wept when I did!

It confirmed everything I thought when I read OWG! Oh My Word... brilliant plot, emotionally gripping and just plain B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!

We continue off where OWG ended. Okay, not quite exactly, but a month or so later, but you don't miss much - it's recapped and it's really sad, but I'm glad it wasn't really featured because not much happens during Drew & Fable's separation.

When I reached the end of OWG, I was very upset with Drew. Angry even, but from the start of SCB - I got over it. Drew is absolutely in the running for book boyfriend of the year! Yes he's got serious issues... they not pretty, but he's still such a great, loving and deep guy that I'll take him in a heart-beat... drama and all.

I loved that this book was longer. We definitely received more story, more Drew and much more Fable. Am I the only one who thought Fable's little brow was annoying? Maybe it's because I'm not a huge fan of reading books that contain young teenagers in there that seem to take up to many pages with their own set of issues... not that his appearance hindered the actual story, I just found him a little dreary at times and he's actually a real thug. {I'm not a huge fan of kids as you can tell lol}
So at a chance meeting, Drew and Fable reconnect. This is another bonus in SCB. There was only a small time-frame that they ended up being apart and very soon into this, they rekindled their flame... Thank You for that :D

I was nervous for a minute when I got into the first and second chapters. I really thought there was going to be a love triangle and bless her heart, Author Monica Murphy, didn't tease us like that. She effectively made me nervous, but she nipped it in the bud just as soon as frustration flared within me.

Fable actually seemed to mature during this book. She didn't complain as much as she did in the first. Not that if bugged me, but it definitely stood out and if you've read my review for OWG - you will know that I thought she was kind of a slut. [Hey... she admits it too, so it's not only me]

What I would have changed? The Epilogue... but for no other reasons, other than my own selfish ones. I needed more and it's been a very long time that I've hoped and dreamed for a third book. I really do think this book could easily have an accompanying novella - like a #2.5 or something #hint-hint (my birthday's in two months, just putting it out there that there is time) :D

Anyway, the long and the short is... and the only thing you need to hear from me is that this book doesn't disappoint. It's really good and it's another 2013 Fav for me. I simply love everything about Drew, Fable, OWG & SCB!!! <3

Well done Monica Murphy!!!
