Karen Jones The petite blonde married a Hollywood star, yet she’s the one who spends every day playing a part: the part of a happy wife. A year ago, she agreed to wed a famous actor to defuse rumors about his personal life. Now, her divorce sits just around the corner, along with a five million dollar payout.
However, as she prepares to exit her fake marriage gracefully, her drop-dead-gorgeous brother-in-law walks through the door…and into her heart.
Dark-haired, blue-eyed hunk Zach crashes Michael and Karen’s fancy one-year anniversary party, determined to meet the wife his brother hid from their family. But sparks fly the moment he and Karen see each other. When the famous couple decides to visit the whole Gardner clan, Karen must keep Michael’s secret under wraps in front of his questioning relatives…including Zach, the man who could be the real love of her life.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
Bybee keeps the series new and interesting by changing up the plots in interesting ways. Unlike other series which offer cookie-cutter plots, Single by Saturday is the story of Karen who is a dedicated volunteer to help young teens. The story is about what she is willing to sacrifice for others and a message about how to stand by the people you value in life. Bybee offers example after example of strong support through Karen's actions and the actions of her friends.
This book has romance but more importantly it shows the value of great friends and family and their value. This book is light on the raw romance and more heavy on relationship aspects and the value of individuals' ethics. I give it a thumbs up and I think the series is alive and thriving.
This was a love triangle that boast sacrifice, friendship and unspoken love on many levels. Great addition to series. Love the continuation of characters.

Next in a good series. Interesting plot. Good cast of characters continues. Well written within this genre. One of my favorites so far.
Say something about yourself!
She brings the various characters to life
Great example of a series that focuses on new characters in each book while bringing in the characters of prior books.
It is difficult to know where to start this review. By far, this is the best of series and perhaps the best of Catherine Bybee's books to date. "Single By Saturday" is a complex mixture of life alternating romance, effects of intense child abuse, and intense difficulty of public figures coming to grips with divulging their sexuality. Powerful book and characters. Likewise, the narration by Tanya Eby is outstanding. I have listened to over 10 of her audiobooks, and she shows her increasing talent each time. With this narration, she moves herself into the top echelon of today's female narrators. I strongly recommend "Single by Saturday" to all listeners.
Michael, Karen & Zach
The heart works in mysterious ways, this was the most difficult to read, my heart broke for all of the characters! Again a true, joyful, passionate love story with lots of twists n turns & plenty of roadblocks. I love how the story continues on in future books-warms my heart with happy ending for these characters.
This was not the best in the series in my opinion. It did have some issues for sure. Didn't really care for the "fake wife" falling for the brother, or the brother falling for his brother's wife, when he didn't even know it was a fake marriage. It seem to me that Zack and Karen only had some attraction towards each other and it felt fake and rushed to me. I didn't like how Karen got sooooo mad at Mike when he kissed her at the bar-b-q party. That was sort of stupid, I mean really, she did sign up to be his fake wife. Too many eye rolling moments.... that would be me rolling my eyes, like whatever, geez and seriously??
I didn't hate it but it was not great by no means. There was lots of dialogue throughout the book which was great, and there was a nicely written sex scene, so there is that. Regardless of the not so good story line the writing did flow very nicely.
As for the narration, It seems Tanya Eby has gotten better with each book! She gives everyone their own distinct voice, the men sound like men and her reading voice is very nice.
I do plan on reading\listening to the next book in the series because the rest were really good, so I am not giving up on this series.
I got this as a free listen and read with my KU subscription. Glad I didn't pay for this one, so yes a good deal.
A story of hope and true love and how we can help others in need.
I liked how she found true love even thou she tried to ignore the signs at first.
The mud fight left me smiling.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Single by Saturday: Weekday Brides, Book 4 is another entertaining romance by Catherine Bybee, whose characters are always enjoyable! In Book 4, we get to know three, in particular, a bit more deeply: Karen Jones, Michael and his brother, Zach, who are added to Bybee's eclectic series’ collection of friends. As with any “odd” number, these three characters find themselves in a quandary, and must find resolution to achieve their happy ending.
Again, the story is lighthearted, while also engaging.
If you are in the mood for a fun read, this novel will provide.
Definitely credit worthy!
I would read this one over and over again. I enjoyed the fact that it was light and laugh of out loud moments
Made me laugh
I really wish Micheal would stop being a punk and come out of the closet
