Tasty Book Tour: A Fool For You by Katee Robert (Review + Giveaway)

The final book in Katee Robert’s Foolproof Love series was the emotional one of the series and it had every reason to be the best of the three.

About Katee:
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee.

She found romance novels at the age of twelve and they changed her life.

When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

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.

The last book in the Foolproof Love series just happens to be the most emotional one of the series and *cough* sorry Aubry and Quinn*cough* my favorite. So Hope Daniels hasn’t been back in Devil’s Falls for 13 years. Not since the night her life changed drastically. When she comes back for the weekend she meets up with her former boyfriend Daniel and the two spend the night together and Hope thinks that’s the end of that. Until she finds out she’s pregnant and is forced to confront Daniel and the past tragedy that they both share. In the meantime Daniel is fighting his guilt over what happened to Hope all those years ago and when she comes to him with the news that they’re going to be parents, he sees it as a chance to make up for what he’s done. Except Hope doesn’t want a man who sees her and their baby as a sort of atonement for imagined wrongs.

I’m glad that Katee Robert saved Hope and Daniel for last, they needed a little more time apart and readers needed to see how Daniel had been living his life, even if it was only brief glimpses in the previous books. This guy was metaphorically beating himself up over something that happened 13 years ago. Even though A Fool For You doesn’t include lengthy flashback scenes of who Hope and Daniel were before, Katee Robert did a great job of driving home the fact that Daniel had changed so much in 13 years. The way she conveyed Daniel’s guilt really hit it’s mark and I felt bad for the guy even when I wanted to strangle him for being so stupid sometimes.

I do love a survivor, especially a heroine so Hope had some leverage there. She was a strong character who survived several crushing moments in her life. The way she handled those moments made me admire her and in a way it made Daniel look bad because here was this woman who lost so much in the same tragic incident that Daniel experienced yet she still found joy and moved forward with her life as best as she could. She wasn’t a dreary, woe-is-me character, that honor went to Daniel. I liked Hope because while she tried her best to look at the bright side of life, she had her moments of losing it and breaking down which made her relatable through and through.

When Daniel was away from Hope he was this maudlin character who needed a swift kick in the pants to realize he was being self centered with his guilt, but he absolutely came alive when Hope walked back into his life. These two were hot, hot, HOT together but they also had a lot of conflict between them. I enjoyed watching them pull and push each other to the point where the elephant in the room was dealt with: The accident that changed everything for both of them. It was both an emotionally satisfying romance and a passionate one.

A Fool For You may have dethroned Aubry and Quinn’s story as my favorite but that didn’t stop me from enjoying Aubry’s brief appearances and her blunt honesty. I still love that character and she definitely had a moment where it seemed she was voicing my very thoughts. She’s a riot.

Final Verdict: The final book in the Foolproof Love series didn’t disappoint. There may have been some misty eyes here and there. Or it might have been allergies. Yeah, that’s it, we’ll go with allergies.
