The seventh and final tale in the dazzling, heartwarming, and pulse-racing Weekday Brides series.
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.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
This is the last full length book of the series and its conclusion. Bybee developed a series of romance, tension and intrigue. When you evaluate a series you want superior character development woven with interesting plot developments that link within an overall environment. The author achieves success on all accounts.
This series will appeal to romance/thriller readers of adult age. Her dialog fits nicely into the story and I enjoyed the repartee. Some of the settings and the backstory has been done and overused in many books, but that will not detract from your overall enjoyment. The narrator, Eby, does an outstanding performance.
I recommend the entire series.
the only thing... gabby needed her italian accent like she did in book 6. that was the only thing that threw me off. love the stories.
This was a wonderful series it ended with the story of Gabriella and Hunter but you do get a look at everybody else who has come in the six books before was sad to know that this is the last book we will be reading about this wonderful group of friends well done Catherine
This is a story of the most unlikely pair ending up together, because he blackmailed her into agreeing to help him.throughout their time they learn to trust one another and even though it has a happy ever after ending, it's was a little unexpected but very fitting.
I'm a cheerleader for authors, narrators and audiobooks I love! All things Romance, Horror and Sci Fi
I loved this series some better than others but Ms. Bybee definitely left the best for last in this series!
This entire series was nothing short of a true delight and Treasured by Thursday was no exception. If you are looking for a good, light hearted, make you smile, romance than this is the one for you.
I am so sad to reach the end of this series!! I got so involved in the charactet's lives and adventures, that I don't want to leave them! I'm seriously considering going back to "Married By Monday" , the first book in the series, and listening again!!
Well the weekday brides have come to and end in this last book in the series. I have to say I have really enjoyed them all.
I really like Catherine Bybee's writing style. She gives you all aspects of a good book. Great characters, an easy to follow story line and plot, great chemistry between the main characters with nicely written sex scenes, not erotica. And lots and lots of fantastic dialogue.
I really liked Gabby and Hunter. He is an arrogant but sweet billionaire. She is sweet and strong considering what she has been through. I really liked that she wasn't one of those heroines that refused his gifts or his money. That was a great change. She accepted and liked it.
I have read all the Not Quite series and enjoyed them as well. If you looking for some fun contemporary romances Catherine Bybee is for you.
As for the narration. Well it was great. I really like Tanya Eby, The men sound like men and she gives everyone their own distinct voice. Her reading voice is very nice too. She reads with emotion and is really a great narrator.
"great series of books"
Characters were great how does the author keep finding different storylines I've really enjoyed this series of bookd
"Satisfying romance with a good background plot"
I have read (or listened to) most of this series but did not read the previous book to this one where the h was first introduced. This did not matter too much as what happened to her was well explained and this book can be read as a stand alone. It does feature many of the characters in the previous books but their relevance is easy to follow.
Following the “fake marriage” theme of the series, this is about the h, still recovering from the abuse and criminal activities of her late husband, who is blackmailed into marriage by H who needs a wife to support his child custody battle – for a child that is not his! Don’t worry, it does make sense eventually.
The H is, naturally, obscenely wealthy and powerful, and used to getting what he wants, but although the monetary figures bandied around did make my head spin a bit, what makes this book really good is his slow and fairly reluctant journey into realising that he is actually head over heels in love. He actually falls in love with the h pretty quickly, but does not recognise the symptoms, or know what to do with them. What is really enjoyable in this book is his sheer bafflement at how the h has worked her way into being such an important part of his life, and his bemusement at how she has changed his outlook on life without him being consciously able to resist. There is some great witty banter between them, and the h is by no means intimidated or dominated by the power or wealth of the H.
There is well written plot revolving around the h’s dead husband and his drug money laundering involving accounts in her name, running alongside the story of the H’s twin brother trying to blackmail him with a paternity suit. Both stories come together for a great plot climax and it was good to see that being a successful and wealthy businessman did not also make H a superhero, and he sensibly left the covert rescue tactics to the experts! In fact I laughed out loud when he was leaping over a fence on the way to deliver the ransom demand for his wife and the thought crossed his mind that he really needed more time at the gym.
Catherine Bybee has done a great job with this book and credit must also go to the narrator, Tanya Eby, who is excellent, as usual.
