Peek Inside The Three-Week Arrangement

After losing the woman he loved, Ethan Chase would rather ride solo—if his family would let him.

When Ethan asks her to pose as his girlfriend to get his family off his back, she figures it can't hurt. But with Ethan, there's no faking anything.

With him, there’s no faking anything…

Ethan Chase isn’t interested in dating. After losing the woman he loved more than life itself, he’d much rather ride solo, but his family is dead set on fixing him up. To get them off his back, he hooks up with ultra-adventurous, ultra-temporary adventure photographer, Rue Campbell. All he has to do is survive three weeks in her orbit and he’ll be single again, only without the pitying looks and pressure to move on.

Rue is literally counting the days until her plane leaves New York City. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but being Ethan’s pretend girlfriend can’t hurt, right? Wrong. With Ethan, there’s no faking anything—in or out of the bedroom. With the sheets burning hot and the clock ticking on their arrangement, Rue realizes she’s falling for a man guaranteed to derail her goals…and break her heart.



"It's hard to put into words just how much Ethan's story hit me right in the feels. And I mean tears-streaming-down-my-face-while-I'm-smiling type of feels ::sigh:" ~Julianne R., Goodreads review
"'blissful sigh' - is there a time limit you have to wait before you can reread a story you just finished?" ~Maria R., Goodreads review

"This can be read as a stand-alone, but with a series this great, why would you do that! Jump in and fall in love with all the Chase brothers!" ~Amy, Goodreads review

“Sometimes falling in love with someone , or at least moving in that direction, is reason enough to take a chance"

Cute contemporary romance and as a bonus, for once the female MC didn't work my last good nerve.

Full review to come.

The Three-Week Arrangement was a heartwarming read.

I've really enjoyed the Chase Brothers series & I've been eagerly awaiting The Three-Week Arrangement, Ethan Chase's story. I'm very happy to report Sarah Ballance has not let her readers down.

This is the third book in the Chase Brothers series from this author and the second one that I have read and reviewed. I was thrilled to find that this one was just as good as the last.

I'm so glad that Ethan has his own story with a HEA! I've enjoyed reading about the escapades of the Chase brothers and the author has skilfully made the reader feel that I've grown to know the family through her stories. Having said that, I suspect that you could also read this as a standalone nove ...more

3.5 Electric green eyes and a body that would make a nun sob for sweet relief stars. This one is better than book two; this series tends to do that with each book. It’s a cute, quick and somewhat quirky read. The plot has been used many times before but there are a few fresh twists in this one. Ther ...more

3.5 “Great inner conflict” STARS

ARC via Netgalley

Thank you, Entangled!!

Well, let’s start by giving praise where praise is due, which in this case means high stakes. Talk about major inner conflict.

Ethan Chase’s major inner conflict.

Let’s be honest here… This was the typical third-person dual-POV rom ...more

I love a good pretending story! And I do mean good. Some are too contrived and just wrong but this one gets pretending right! And once I started it, I didn't stop till it was done.

Ethan...I love that name three years past the death of this wife. He's fine. Really, he is. He'll tell you so. ...more

It is hard to review this one without spoilers...and even if I were to give all of the details away, it wouldn't matter, as it is the reading of the well-written story that draws you in. It's Ethan and how much you like him, and believe in him. After ...more

Wow! I loved Ethan and Rue's story. This book was filled with so much heart, bittersweet, heavy emotions. Or maybe that is how I felt for Ethan. He is a beautiful man, still loving his wife who passed away, struggling to go on. And then he meets Rue, making his whole life come alive. I loved the way ...more

By Patricia April 05, 2016

Funny, and touching. Ethan wedged his way into my heart and to watch him falling for Rue was endearing. Sometimes you read a book that brings many emotions to the surface and at times that's exactly how I felt. Yet, the funny moments and the crazy pets had me smiling like a fool.

I have to say I woul ...more

So much emotion was flowing through me when I read this story. The Three Week Arrangement will make you laugh, cry and scratch your head in puzzlement at times.

The Three Week Arrangement   is the first novel I have read by Sarah Ballance. It's definitely one that makes me want to beg for more. The characters are shy, bold, and hot. Their dramas become your own. A young woman is bold and daring has a high s ...more

On the anniversary of his wife's death, Ethan walked down the street of their old neighborhood. This year was different, he ran into Rue kicking her mustang because she had locked her keys in her car. Everything she owned was either locked in her car or her house.

I want a puppy. That's what I'm getting from this. Every time I read a book that features dogs to adopt, I wish I was in a situation where I could get a dog.
