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.
Each book in the Foolproof Love series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.Series Order:Book #1 Foolproof LoveBook #2 Fool Me OnceBook #3 A Fool for You
A Fool for You is book 3 in the series, but you can read it as a stand alone. The previous couples make an appearance, but you don’t need to know their story to understand the story between Hope and Daniel. A Fool for You is the story of second chances and it is really deep and well written.
The tragedy that forced Hope and Daniel apart was heartbreaking. You can see why Daniel did the things he did, but that doesn’t make them easier to accept. Hope has done the best she can with her life after losing her brother and Daniel. She has been brave and tough, but you can see that it is kind of a front. She has always pushed herself to be ‘okay’. There were lots of times in this story I wanted to punch Daniel in the nuts. While you can totally get why he might feel a certain way, I was still so frustrated with his actions. Hope deserved so much more! She needed him and he abandoned her.
Hope reminds me of those strong women throughout history who allow themselves only a limited time to greave. She then forces herself to box the emotion away and push onward. I wanted so badly for someone, anyone, to see through her facade and just hug her!!
A Fool for You has several of the things I love about Entangled books: steamy, quick, and satisfying. I love when I can finish a book in 1 sitting because then I never have to leave the world until I know how it all ends. These books are perfect for when you want a quick read that provides lots of steamy moments.

From A Fool for You:
Hope shook her head. “You’re as much an idiot now as you were then.”
And then she kissed him.
It caught him a little off guard—he hadn’t expected her to be the one to make the first move, especially after the way the scene in the bathroom had gone down—but Daniel wasted no time taking control. He kissed down her neck, sliding his hands beneath her shirt and skating them up to her body to cup her breasts. They filled his palms, familiar and yet not, all at the same time. He cursed. “Gorgeous Darling, the things you do to me.” He nipped her collarbone. “I’m going to taste you, so if you’re going to change your mind, now’s the time to do it.”
Her only response was to shove her yoga pants down to her knees.
He lifted her onto the counter and disentangled her right leg from the pants so he could spread her fully. He stroked her thighs, pausing when his fingers met the scar. It brought up so many conflicting feelings in him. It was his fault that she had the damn thing, but that didn’t mean he thought of her as less, the way she seemed to think. She was as beautiful now as she’d been at eighteen, and more confident despite her injury. Or maybe because of it. He had no idea.
All he knew was that at some point he was going to have to get up close and personal with her healed injury, and he was going to have to tread very, very carefully to avoid burning what was left of the bridge between him and Hope.
“If you apologize, I might actually kick you.”
That snapped him out of it. As much as he wanted Hope, he had an ulterior motive for pushing her now. All getting distracted by her leg was going to do was fuck up his chance of convincing her to stay, in his house and in his bed. He jerked her to the edge of the counter, spreading her thighs wider. “Don’t scream. You’ll upset Ollie.”
And then he did what he’d been fantasizing about ever since he walked out of her life. Daniel dipped his head and gave her center one long lick. She tasted better than he remembered, her body already shaking for him, so he used his thumbs to part her folds and licked her again, reacquainting himself with every inch of her.
He looked up her body to find her head thrown back and her chest rising and falling with each harsh breath. “Take off your shirt.”
Hope wasted no time obeying, dragging the material over her head and tossing it away. And then there was nothing hiding her body from his gaze. He licked her again, savoring the way she shook. A tattoo curling around the bottom of her ribs caught his eye, but he was too distracted to read it.
He was tired of teasing her. He wanted to feel her orgasm again, to know she was coming apart at the seams because of him. Daniel sucked her clit into his mouth, stroking the sensitive little nub with the flat of his tongue the way she’d always loved. Sure enough, before he had a chance to truly savor her, Hope cried out his name and shuddered, her thighs squeezing his head as she came. He gentled his touches, licks turning to kisses, turning to the slightest brushing of his lips against her. Only when she stopped shaking did he raise his head. “Stay, at least until we figure out what we’re doing.”
