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.
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.

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Whew. This book was all business. The last two books had a lightheartedness to it that this one definitely did not have. Hope and Daniel have a past and not all of it is happy. We had been hearing about the car accident that killed Hope's brother and how Daniel felt that he was responsible. In this book, everything comes to head after 13 long years.
Hope comes back to Devil's Falls to set up a scholarship in her brother's name. She knows that there is a chance she will run into Daniel, but what she doesn't expect is to end up at his birthday dinner party. Daniel is less than pleased to see her, but when the two of them try to talk their way through it, they end up having sex. Hope leaves town a few days later without a word to Daniel, but six weeks later she is back and turns out she is carrying his child.
I love a good second chance romance story, but the thing that frustrated me with this book was how Hope and Daniel kept dancing around the subject of the accident. It was such a large part of their life and the reason that they weren't together. Guilt is a terrible emotion. It can destroy relationships without a second thought and that is exactly what happened with Hope and Daniel. These two wouldn't be able to truly move on until they dealt with the past. And it didn't help that Hope's parents were quite unhappy with the recent developments and even Daniel's close friends made sure that he knew that they wouldn't stand for him to hurt Hope's feelings again.
But in the present they have to deal with things as well. Hope sees Daniel being involved in their child's life, but she has every intention to return to Houston, while Daniel saw Hope never leaving his house. Two VERY different scenarios. But watching these two hash things out (mostly by having sex) was very entertaining.
This book was a satisfying end to the series. It finally told the story that I had been to read since the first book. I am a sucker for a second chance romance and this was a great one.
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.”
