It’s just a belated goodbye, right? No harm, no foul.
A FOOL FOR YOU
Foolproof Love #3
Releasing Oct 3rd, 2016
thirteen years since Hope Moore left Devil’s Falls, land of sexy cowboys and
bad memories. Back for the weekend, she has no intention of seeing the man she
never got over…or the two of them getting down and dirty. It’s just a belated
goodbye, right? No harm, no foul.
Until six weeks later, when her pregnancy test comes back positive…
Daniel Rodriguez hasn’t forgiven himself for how things went down with Hope all
those years ago. He knows she’s better off without him, but when she shows up
on his doorstep, panicking because she’s pregnant with his baby, he can’t help
seeing it as a chance to make up for the past.
Too bad Hope has no intention of going along with his plans.
I’ve read a Katee Robert’s book before, so I’m not new to this author, but I am new to the series – Foolproof Love. A Fool For You is book #3 in the series, but that’s okay. I promise you. It could be read as a standalone. I’m sure it helps to have read the first two books to know the secondary characters, but Hope Moore and Daniel Rodriguez don’t need anything but each other.
I would like to qualify this review – I’m a huge fan of small town romance and second chances at love. Ms. Robert’s has lived up to my expectations with these tropes. A small town feel – where everyone knows everyone’s business – even those that have moved out of town are subject to gossip. And Hope and Daniel’s rekindling of lust and love was top notch.
This isn’t a sweet romance where everything is peachy keen between these two except for some distance. Nope. These two have a very bumpy past. Thirteen years ago, Daniel had been the driver of a vehicle that killed Hope’s brother and damaged her leg so severely she had to have a knee replacement at a young age. Daniel has never gotten over the accident or the role he played in it. Hope was devastated when Daniel turned his back on her thirteen years ago – deciding to live in guilt than find a life with her.4
Hope meanders back into town to set up a scholarship in her brother’s name and winds up at Daniel’s surprise birthday party. Sparks fly – because despite the anger and hurt, their love was real and never faded. A quickie on the side of the house for old time’s sake results in Hope getting pregnant and well – now what?!
Ms. Robert did an excellent job of weaving this tale. It had me intrigued from the get-go. Daniel is a sexy dirty-talking country boy who will leave you wanting more. His struggle with his emotions were portrayed so realistically. The readers won’t be able to help falling in love with him. And Hope is a gem. She struggled through the loss of her brother, the loss of the love of her life and her injuries to stand on her own two feet. That’s a true heroine. But everyone heroine needs a hero – at least a little. A sexy, fun and enticing novel. I’d highly recommend.
