ARC received from Montlake Romance via Netgalley for an honest review

It is always a bittersweet feeling when you come to the last book in a series.  And it was no different as I read Treasured By Thursday.

We met Gabi Masini in Seduced by Sunday, and to get the full effect of her story,  you should at least read that book in the series before reading Treasured by Thursday. The story line continued on in Thursday.

Mentally and physically scarred by events in Thursday, Gabi has had trouble moving on in the love department.  Just as she starts to get back on her feet again, she meets Hunter Blackwell.

And Hunter Blackwell comes along  and makes her an offer she can't refuse.  No, really, can't refuse!!

Oh Hunter - it took me a while to forgive you for the way things happened, the way you got Gabi to marry you, but as the story continued, we saw past that hard, bully-ish exterior and found the heart of gold beneath.

I have adored Gabi from when we first met her, and just love her more and more as her story progressed. 

I loved the wit, the snark, the barbs thrown between Gabi and Hunter.  You can feel the attraction between them right from the start.  Gabi's "threats" to Hunter are hilarious.

There is a fair bit of suspense and intrigue in Treasured By Thursday - again, things that carry over from Seduced By Sunday.

As with all the Weekday Brides books, we get lots of the previous couples. All our characters lives are intertwined, so it would not be a complete WB book without a little of each of them.  The series has gotten better each book because of this.

So, can Gabi and Hunter overcome the rough start to their relationship, or will it all just be a contract with an expiration date/

Nope, for that you are going to have to read for yourself!

I am going to miss the Weekday Brides, but I am looking forward to the Holiday Brides, and any other future books from Ms Bybee.
