Treasured by Thursday (The Weekday Brides #7) by Catherine Bybee & GIVEAWAY

Published September 22, 2015 by Montlake Romance

Gabriella Masini: She’s a woman haunted by her past, with the scars to prove it. She believes that fairy tales are for other people. An elite matchmaker at Alliance, she’s great at crunching numbers, but something doesn’t add up with her latest prospective client: a billionaire bad boy with his own secrets. When Gabi refuses to be his temporary wife, Hunter forces her hand with an offer she can’t refuse. But marriage to a man like that could never last…or could it?

Hunter Blackwell: Only his bank account is bigger than his ruthless ability to obtain anything he wants. These days, he has a secret reason to settle down, at least for a while—and he thinks the sensual and sassy Gabi will fit the bill perfectly. But when their marriage of convenience becomes downright dangerous, Hunter must decide how far to take his vow to honor and protect Gabi forever. 

My Thoughts…

I am sad to say that this series is now officially over.    The Weekday Brides Series by Catherine Bybee has always been a series of sweet romance books that I knew would make my heart beat faster, my eyes tear up, and keep me awake late at night having to keep reading.    With each book I met new friends, were reacquainted with old friends, and fell in love with the male heroes. 

In Treasured by Thursday we learn the rest of Gabi’s story.    When we left her in Seduced by Sunday she had just moved to the states after a disastrous marriage to a drug smuggler.    I felt for her then and still had those feelings picking up her story.     I was excited to jump into her story and find out if she could ever trust again, if she could find happiness, and most importantly if she could find love.    When Hunter comes into her work the sparks flew.    The attraction was obvious, yet the weariness from Gabi was expected.   While I did not love that she had to give in to Hunter, I loved that Hunter seemed to want to show her respect from the beginning of their relationship.     He did not push her to give more than what she was willing and accepted what she was willing to give.   

I felt like this was the perfect ending to the series.    Catherine Bybee tied up the loose ends with the other characters, letting the reader know what they were up to while not taking away from the main characters.     Each couple from the previous books made an appearance while adding to the current story.  

This is certainly a series that has to be read.   I recommend reading the books in order but each can be read as a standalone also.
