~~SUMMARY~~Gwen Stone has secrets she’s not ready to reveal. After a recent promotion at work, she needs a caretaker for her children. She’s frenzied and in a lurch and pretty much ready to hire the first person who comes along. So she does. Andrew Lyons needs to get out of his sister’s apartment, and a Craigslist posting may be the answer to his prayers. But what he thought was an ad for a room rental turns into a job offer he can’t refuse. Accepting the nanny position could change his life, if only he had a clue how to be a grownup. A working mother, a shirtless “manny” who looks good in a towel, two children who need more than a babysitter, and hours of kids’ TV can only spell disaster for everyone involved. Because a manny should always mind his own business. And he definitely shouldn’t fall in love with his boss.
*******5 Dee Stars *****
I was given an arc for a honest review.
Eight days a week grasped at my heart strings. This book is all about the things we as people go through in everyday life. Heartbreak, tragedy, love and Happiness.
I have to say I wasn't a big fan of Andrew when I first started the book because he had one thing on his mind, money and women. But then again, what guys don't? As the story progressed I found myself falling in love with this fictional Character. I mean come on who doesn't love a man who is great with kids.
Gwen- An extraordinary woman with what seems like all the card is the world against her. She is a loving and compassionate woman by all means; I just think she needed to open her eyes to realize that.
Brady and Bree- I love these kids and their date wrecking ways! They have been through so much tragedy but yet are able to find it in themselves to love again.
All in all Eight Days A Week is one of those books that you need on a day when you are looking for a bit of everything.
I will be recommending this book to others as I loved it!
~~ABOUT THE AUTHOR~~
Amber is a full-time mom and a full-time wife who is employed full time and writes when she can. She believes in Happily Ever Afters that occur every day—despite the obstacles real life serves up on a regular basis. Or perhaps they’re sweeter simply because of them. She always has two rubber bands on her wrist, a song in her head, and too much creamer in her coffee cup that reads ‘Cocoa,’ because she’s a rebel. If she’s not at her desk, with her boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms raised above her head and her eyes closed, waiting for the drop.

Praise for Eight Days a Week
"Laugh-out-loud story about a guy who goes to look at a room to rent and discovers it comes with a job - that of live-in nanny to two damaged kids. So Andrew Lyons accidentally becomes the "manny". Written in his POV, this book chronicles his hilarious escapades as he looks after and grows to love Bree and Brady, and his employer, Gwen. His pranks and spot-on observations about kids' TV shows had me giggling, but there were a few serious moments worthy of a sniffle as well. The star of the show may be Don, though - you'll just have to read this book to find out about him! Highly recommended."
