Is eight weeks enough time to earn back the love of someone you've betrayed... the only one you've ever loved? Shelly has been in love with Cal since they started dating in eleventh grade. Despite everyone saying that the odds were against them, they got married after graduation and built a life together. Now, six years later, she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. Devastated, her first instinct is to call it quits... After a drunken binge at his best friends' bachelor party, Cal betrays the one person who has always been there for him, his wife, Shelly. Terrified and realizing she might divorce him, Cal must come up with a way to prove to her that his love is true... Cal asks Shelly for eight weeks. Eight weeks to convince her that their marriage is worth the fight. Will Shelly be able to trust him again, or will their marriage end the way many others do when faced with opposition...

    "Underwhelmed"

    I don't normally read books with cheating, especially with spouses, but this book was written such that the focus was on the couple repairing their relationship and genuinely in love. That was all good but my problem was I never connected with the characters. They fell flat and I was underwhelmed by them, which meant that in the end I really didn't care what happened. The narrator did a nice job but even listening to it couldn't bring it to life anymore. I've heard great things about this author but I won't be reading anymore of this series.

    "Very Nice Story"

    4 stars for the book, 2.5 for narration
    This was actually a really good book. I thought it was an interesting spin on the topic. I felt the writing of the characters really conveyed their feelings realistically regardless if you agreed or felt you would react a different way. It wasn't overly emotional, but yet it really dealt with an issue and the emotions people can relate to in a contemplative way.

    The narration, however, fell somewhat short of this. It wasn't bad. I've heard bad. So, that's what was hard for me. I just felt that the hills and valleys that the author wrote beautifully were not reflected in the narration. The narrator had good inflection, but not the depths. So, real hurt and pain didn't "feel" real. Yet, I think she had a lot of potential. It was almost there, but not which kept me from "feeling" the characters. The feeling in the writing came through though.

    I am definitely looking forward to more from this author.

    I received this copy as an ARC for an honest review.

    Story
    "Beth Stewart was a fantastic narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 8 Weeks to be better than the print version?

    I would definitely consider this to be better than the print version because Stewart brought Lopez's words to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Although I didn't get to hear much from them because they were such minor characters but it would be Sasha and Gabi.


    Which character – as performed by Beth Stewart – was your favorite?

    From this book, it would be Shelly because it is exactly how i would've pictured the scene going down when receiving the news and working through her emotions.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Will 8 weeks truly be enough?

    "Wonderful story and Narration"

    I enjoyed listening to this story. The narrator's voice was good in both male and female characters. The story was very heartfelt.

    Story
    "The Way Back"

    What happens when you have been with your spouse for over 6 years? If an indiscretion happens can you forgive or give up and leave? This story shows the struggles that a couple faces at that crossroads. Shelli and Cal face this exact challenge and instead of walking away, Cal convinces Shelli to give him 8 weeks.
    This story made me think of my own marriage and made me question how we would react in the very same situation. A gripping story with great Narrators.
    This was my first book from this author and I plan to read more from her.

    "Loved this book!"
    If you could sum up 8 Weeks in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet romantic and heartfelt


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 8 Weeks?

    The hotel room, i just keep going back to the hotel room hoping that this was not true.


    What about Beth Stewart’s performance did you like?

    I loved it all, she is an awesome narrator. I will for sure look for her work going forward.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could not stop listening, I was sucked in from the very first word to the last.


    Any additional comments?

    I will have to admit that I prejudged this book. I read the husband cheated and I wanted nothing to do with him or with this book. I was told that I would love it if i would just give it a chance, and i LOVED IT my only issue now is I want more! I do wish that we would have found out what did happen in that room, maybe that will be a later book.If you looking for one of he sweetest books ever this one is for you. The author and narrator did a fantastic job on this book.

    Any additional comments?

    although I am not a fan of cheating I love how Cal didn't give up when he was kicked out and how he earns Shelly's trust again. I would listen to this book again for sure and I loved the was Beth told this story she had a clear and clean voice very easy to listen to.

    Any additional comments?



    I received this audio book for free in exchange for a true and honest review.

    After going to Vegas for a friend’s bachelor party and drinking more than your average village, Cal wakes up with the mother of all hangovers!
    He also seems to be naked..........and not alone!!!

    Unfortunately it also isn't his wife that is naked in the room with him, Cal must decide what to do!

    He actually is very honest and instead of the usual “what happens in Vegas” straight away tells his wife, who subsequently dumps him for cheating and asks for a divorce.

    All of Cal’s friends (after telling him what an idiot he is) know that he never would have done anything to jeopardise his relationship with Shelly, he is head over heels in love with her and have to watch as he sinks lower and lower when he ends up having to sleep on a friends couch after being thrown out of his home.

    After apologising over and over again to Shelly, Cal refuses to give her a divorce until she allows him 8 dates (weeks) to prove to her that their marriage is worth keeping and how much he loves her, and to gain her trust back.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book as cheating is not something that I take lightly yet I was quietly rooting for Cal to woo Shelly back.

    Narration was excellent, I didn’t feel a need to speed up/ slow down the story and I could clearly distinguish all of the voices.

    A great 4 star read.
