The seventh and final tale in the dazzling, heartwarming, 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.

Catherine Bybee does it again; she takes an unlikely pair and turns them into a couple that you can’t help but root for.
In Treasured by Thursday we return to the world of Alliance for the final time. Hunter is our billionaire who needs a wife, but plays his cards close to the vest as to why. Gabi, is the newest Alliance employee and when she turns the contract down, he decides to play dirty.
What follows is a great story of two people taking an unlikely circumstance and discovering that they like each other as they get to know one another. Past secrets and mysteries add an element of suspense. The author does a wonderful job of integrating the romantic story with the suspenseful elements without making things drag on forever.
While this is a stand-alone effort, I would highly recommend having read at least some of the prior weekday bride books before Treasured by Thursday. Since this is the final book of the series, the prior 6 couples make numerous appearances in the story. Their appearances are organic and important to the story, but having the additional background on some of the other couples was helpful in understanding relationships and having everything make sense.Overall, this is a book that I would definitely recommend, especially if you have enjoyed Catherine Bybee’s work in the past.
