He never thought he’d get a second chance. A Fool For You is the third and final novel in the Foolproof Love series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Katee Robert and Entangled Publishing.
He turned to find Hope standing behind him. Again. “You sure move quiet when you want to.” Especially for a woman with a bum leg. Not that he could say as much without sounding like a jackass.
“You mean since I had my knee replaced.” Of course she knew what he meant anyway. Apparently damn near reading his mind was one annoying habit she hadn’t outgrown.
“I didn’t say that.”
“You didn’t have to.” She leveraged herself down next to him, the move not quiet as smooth as it’d been when she was eighteen.
Daniel almost cursed. He had to stop doing that. Comparing her now to how she was then wasn’t fair to either of them. It was another lifetime completely, and thinking about it was just fucking depressing. “Hope—”
“Are you seeing anyone?”
He was so surprised by the question that he answered honestly, “Why the fuck would I bother?”
“Oh, I don’t know, because you don’t want to be a creepy old man who lives in the middle of nowhere and has to run off silly high school kids with his shotgun because they tell ghost stories about him?”
He looked at her, half sure that she was the one who’d lost her damn mind. “That’s not a thing.”
“It is most definitely a thing.” She leaned back on her hands and stared at the sky. The most move arched her back and pressed her breasts against the fancy tank top she wore. It was made of some kind of drapey fabric that looked soft and shiny, and it highlighted the fact that he seriously doubted she was wearing a bra. “You’re too young to just give up.”
“It’s not about giving up.” Though he didn’t expect Hope to understand that. He’d checked up on her a few times since the accident, and every single time he was amazed at the things she’d accomplished. Life had kicked her in the teeth and she’d come back swinging. She’d taken two years off and then attended the University of Texas and graduated with honors. She ran her own successful consulting business to work with companies that wanted to set up scholarships and nonprofits.
She shifted to look at him. “It looks like giving up from where I’m sitting.”
A Fool for You is the third book in Katee Robert’s Foolproof Love series. In this final installment we get Daniel Rodriguez story. If you have been following along with the series we all know that a fatal car crash thirteen years ago drastically changed the lives the three friends had originally planned for themselves but Daniel’s life went on a downward spiral that never recovered.
Daniel blames himself for the death of his best friend John. If he hadn’t been driving the car all those years ago John might still be with them and Hope, John’s sister and Daniel’s girlfriend at the time, would never have been injured. Daniel lost both John and Hope that day. How could he ever allow himself to stay in Hope’s life after he took her brother away and ruined all her dream after crippling her in the accident? Now all these years later, Daniel is just a shell of the fun loving and enthusiastic man he once was.
Hope may have moved on with her life after the accident but she has never forgotten. Not only does she have the physical reminder in the form of the scars all over her leg and knee from the numerous surgeries and knee replacement but she has a void in her heart as well. She lost the two people she loved the most in her world, her brother and the love of her life Daniel. Daniel and she had their whole future planned out from the house they would build together to the family they would raise in that house. One tragic accident took that all away and now Hope has found herself returning to Devil’s Falls one last time to put the past behind her.
Hope returns to town the day of Daniel’s 34th birthday and happens upon Jules, Daniel’s cousin. When Jules invites Hope to turn she thinks nothing about it until they pull up to the house and Hope sees all the cars. She then learns that Jules was having a surprise party for Daniel’s birthday and had hoped that if Daniel saw Hope he would pull himself out of the darkness that has enveloped him. Hope is floored to see the beautiful man she has always loved has turned into just a shell. When Hope and Daniel finally find themselves alone outside one thing leads to another and even thirteen years apart can’t stop the sparks from flying and the clothes from falling. What neither expected was for the condom to break and Hope to end up pregnant from their one final night together. Now they must decide if they can put the past away and start over again. They both still love each other and want to be together but they will need to trust and forgive each other before they can truly have the future they always wanted together.
I loved this book and this series. If you haven’t read the other two books in the series I would highly recommend starting with those book first so you get a full picture. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
