BLOG TOUR STOP & GIVEAWAY│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


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.


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."

I had the honor to read this book early and I am so glad that I was given the chance to read and review it!

First, the writing flows so well and was really enjoyable to read! The plot was sweet and funny more than it wasn't! Eight Days a Week was a page turner and kept my attention which is always something I find enjoyable when reading.

The characters were amazing! I loved Drew! If you have read this and didn't love him, I don't know what planet you are from! I loved how he interacted with both kids. It was an instant connection and you could really tell that they love each other. I think the dynamic between them is my favorite part of the book!

I loved how realistic this book was. I felt like I was a part of the family and my heart strings were pulled several times. I really liked the topic of loss that was in this book. I can already see this on the big screen. It would translate very well into a movie!

I gave this book ♥♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads and highly recommend this book to those who love romance, comedy and contemporary stories.
