Series: Foolproof Love Book #3
Author: Katee Robert
Blurb: It’s been 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.
Favorite quotes: “Don’t start that crap with me. I agreed to sex. I did not agree to you doing the equivalent of peeing on my foot. I am not yours, Daniel. I haven’t been for a long time and I never will be again.”
“ I don’t deserve a second chance – or third or fourth or whatever number chance we’re on now – but I’m asking for it all the same.”
Thoughts: I love second chance at love romances, and I’ve read a lot of good ones over the years so I guess my standards are pretty high. All in all, A Fool For You was a pretty decent one, but I felt like there was so much history and baggage here that the short little we got from this story just didn’t do it justice. Thirteen years of emotion? Lost love and regrets? Loss of important friends/family/loved ones? I should practically feel the emotions from in these pages. I should be brought to tears by the depth of the pain. There should be enough chemistry here between these characters to fry my kindle! I just didn’t feel enough emotion with this one. I was also aggravated because I wanted more from the backstory and the events leading up to the car crash, as well as more from immediately afterward.
That’s not to say it was a bad book – it was a decent read and I enjoyed reading about these characters and how they found their way back to each other. I just wanted a lot more from this book than what we got.
