In Vegas for his friend’s bachelor party, a happily married Cal wakes from a drunken stupor and finds himself in a compromising position. Torn by the thought that he’s been unfaithful to his wife Shelly, Cal does the honorable thing and comes clean.
Shelly is blindsided and devastated by Cal’s revelation. Unable to accept his betrayal of their vows, Shelly moves out and files for divorce. Stunned and desperate to save his marriage Cal asks for 8 dates to prove his love for her and his commitment to their relationship.
8 weeks is a heartbreakingly sweet love story. I have to say it’s the first time in a story where I actually felt sorry for the “cheater”. It’s clear Cal loves his wife and you find yourself rooting for him to win Shelly back and boy does he have a long hard road ahead of him!
The audiobook 8 weeks slides in at just under 4 ½ hours and is narrated by Beth Stewart. Beth’s delivery is a little uneven at times. Overall, she did a decent job on this fully voiced production and I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to another audiobook narrated by her.
I enjoyed the writing of Bethany Lopez and look forward to hearing more of her audiobooks.
This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!

Would you consider the audio edition of 8 Weeks to be better than the print version?
I would consider either version a great choice.. This is a lovely story perfect for a weekend read.
What about Beth Stewart’s performance did you like?
I enjoyed Beth Stewart's performance overall. I would look for her as a narrator in the future. Her character readings were very good. I rated this narration a 4 of 5 because in some of the background narrations, I felt there needed to be more emotion as there were some lovely long pieces that I felt were a bit flat.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to this in one short and one long sitting. The story moves over the course of 8 weeks and keeps you rooting for the characters and wanting to see what Cal plans to win Shelly's forgiveness after his awful betrayal.
Any additional comments?
The love story between Cal and Shelly had been love at first sight way back in the 11t grade They married and were happy six years later until Cal commits the ultimate betrayal. How did it happen? What could he do to make it up to her? Shelly gives him 8 weeks to convince her not to file for a divorce. Following the couple and their close group of friends through the eight weeks of Cal's planned dates keeps you wondering until the end, Will Shelly forgive him, will they be able to go forward together. My only warning is the language although it seems present in most literature.
