♥ A Fool For You (Foolproof Love #3) ♥ Katee Robert ♥ Release Blitz & Giveaway ♥




Its been thirteen years since Hope Moore left Devils Falls, land of sexy cowboys and bad memories. Back for the weekend, she has no intention of seeing the man she never got overor the two of them getting down and dirty. Its just a belated goodbye, right? No harm, no foul.

Until six weeks later, when her pregnancy test comes back positive

Daniel Rodriguez hasnt forgiven himself for how things went down with Hope all those years ago. He knows shes better off without him, but when she shows up on his doorstep, panicking because shes pregnant with his baby, he cant help seeing it as a chance to make up for the past.

Too bad Hope has no intention of going along with his plans.






ARC received via Netgalley for an honest review

After reading the previous 2 books in the Foolproof Love series, Daniel Rodriguezs story was the one I was hanging out for.

After what his alluded to about him in the other books, I was expecting to be gutted by his story, and while I liked it, it just didnt pack the punch I was expecting.

I loved Hope and her strength. She stood up to people, didn't need their help (or wouldn't take it if offered).  She has moved on from the crappy things in her past... but her heart hasn't moved on from Daniel.

I really wanted to love Daniel, but there was something about him that just held me back.  I think his hard headed ways, the way he really didn't want to listen to Hope so she would come around to his way of thinking was just a little off putting for me?  Maybe it was his 13 year pity party that just felt a bit ridiculous? (but this could just be me).

I loved that we got more of the couples from the first two books.  The banter, the fun, the heart to heart talks between them all made them all fell well rounded out.

A Fool For You was a bit of a miss for me compared to all Ms Roberts other books that I have read and loved.

But can't wait to see what she brings us next.




EXCERPT

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 hadnt outgrown.

I didnt say that.

You didnt have to. She leveraged herself down next to him, the move not quiet as smooth as itd been when she was eighteen.

Daniel almost cursed. He had to stop doing that. Comparing her now to how she was then wasnt fair to either of them. It was another lifetime completely, and thinking about it was just fucking depressing.

Hope—”

Are you seeing anyone?

No.

Why not?

He was so surprised by the question that he answered honestly, Why the fuck would I bother?

Oh, I dont know, because you dont 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 whod lost her damn mind. Thats 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. Youre too young to just give up.

Its not about giving up. Though he didnt expect Hope to understand that. Hed checked up on her a few times since the accident, and every single time he was amazed at the things shed accomplished. Life had kicked her in the teeth and shed come back swinging. Shed 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 Im sitting.







New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpas knee. She found romance novels at age twelve and it changed her life. When not writing sexy contemporary and speculative fiction romance novels, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her wee ones,
driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
