Review & Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway - Eight Days A Week by Amber L. Johnson

Eight Days a Week
by Amber L. Johnson

A "manny" should always mind his own business. And he definitely shouldn’t fall in love with his boss.

Release Date: November 6 , 2014
Genre: Romance / Contemporary
ISBN e-book: 978-1-61213-329-4
Available from: Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and TWCS PH

Eight-Days-a-Week-3D-Bookstack-2 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.

Reviewers Thoughts:

*An ARC was provided by publisher, in exchange for an honest review*

Gwen Stone needs a nanny and Andrew Lyons needs a job and a place to stay.

Sounds simple enough, right?

Ohhhhh no!

Gwen puts out an ad for a nanny for her two kids and/or a room for rent, and Andrew answers the ad for the room. But Gwen thinks he's there to interview for the nanny position.

Andrew, AKA Dee, was basically thrown into a situation where the kids had to get used to him, and he has no idea the background of the family, and him and the kids getting used to each other, certain words and actions trigger the kids to flip. It wasn't a fair situation for any of them to be in.

Amber L. Johnson is known to pull on our heartstrings, but EDAW tickles your funny bones, as well. Her writing is smart, witty, and Johnson has the ability to make you laugh at the silliest things. (Red studded dildo, anyone?)

*Side note* I so want to make out with and pledge my undying love to Don, but that is a totally whole other story...

I deem Eight Days A Week "Sexy Read Approved"! (A 6-star review!) Make sure you pick up EDAW now, as well as Beatless, Puddle Jumping, and Where We Fell! I loved all of them!

This is equivalent to a 6-star review! It is selectively given for those books that were extra special to me. Sometimes they moved me emotionally or made me think deeply about a certain topic. Sometimes they were beautiful stories. Most of the time they were the books that I need to own and will reread over and over again, because I love the characters and story that much.


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."
