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 think we should talk about what’s going on here.”
She swallowed. “We’re cooking.”
“Gabi, look at me.”
She shook her head, taking the coward’s way out. If she noticed the lock of hair falling into his eyes a second time, she might have to push it back in place.
“Gabriella?” The smooth texture of his voice was like chocolate on her tongue.
His sticky hand tucked under her chin and forced her to meet his gaze.
He stepped closer, his frame molding to hers and pressing her back against the counter.
She couldn’t breathe.
His thumb traced her bottom lip. “This is a bad idea,” he mumbled her thoughts.
She nodded. “Very poor choice.” Her hands gripped the side of the counter to keep from touching him.
Hunter sucked in a deep breath. “You smell like flowers.”
“I’ll change my shampoo.”
He started to dip his head and she kept talking. “Something musky, so you won’t notice me.”
“I don’t think that’s going to work.”
He was close enough to catch the scent of mint on his breath. “I don’t even like you.” One of her legs lifted and rubbed against one of his.
“I don’t trust you.” His hand moved from her lip the side of her neck.
“You blackmailed me.”
“You tricked me into cooking with your mother.”
She smiled. “The two hardly compare.”
Instead of dropping his lips to hers, he detoured to the side of her neck and kept talking, his breath brushing her skin. “Have you met your mother?”
His lips found her neck.
She moaned and closed her eyes. Such a deliciously bad idea.
Treasured by Thursday is the final book in the Weekday Brides series from Catherine Bybee. I've enjoyed each and every book in the series to day and was a little bit sad as I read knowing it was the end of the series. I love getting to visit with favorite characters with each new installment of the series, and loved we got to see everyone in Treasured by Thursday.
I have to be honest and admit while I really liked Gabi from the very beginning; it took some time for me to warm up to Hunter. I just felt like he was keeping too many secrets from Gabi and he really seemed almost cold when they first met. Luckily, it quickly became apparent that there was so much more to Hunter than what he initially let Gabi see. I really did love watching both Hunter's and Gabi's feelings change the more time they spent together. I liked their chemistry took time to grow, and it felt real to me.
I loved once Hunter realized his true feelings for Gabi he became even more protective of her than even her brother. He would do anything to keep her safe, and he proved it over and over again. I also could tell Gabi had real feelings for Hunter when he shared his secret reason for wanting to marry her and she did everything in her power to make everything work out.
Treasured by Thursday was a wonderful end to the Weekday Brides series. Readers were treated with appearances by all the other couples in the series. I honestly felt like each of the 7 books in the series were great reads and as a series were even better.
