Bull rider Adam Meyer put Devil’s Falls in his rearview mirror years ago and hasn’t stopped running since. Now he’s back—temporarily, if he has any say about it. Restless, he finds himself kissing the sexiest girl in town…and agreeing to be the fake boyfriend in her little revenge scheme.
Jules Rodrigez isn’t interested in the role of town spinster. Being seen with a hell raiser like Adam is the perfect way to scandalize the residents, make her ex jealous, and prove she’s a sexy, desirable woman. And if their plan includes ridiculously hot sex—in public, of course—all the better.
But this thing between them has an expiration date. Putting down roots isn’t in Adam’s blood, and Jules’s roots in Devil’s Falls are bedrock deep. He’ll leave, even if it rips out his heart. But this time, he’s not sure he’ll survive it…
Katee Roberts had me hooked the moment I saw the words ‘cat cafe’ – it’s an unfair advantage over me if anyone cares to know, especially when cats come into the equation.
There and then, I was convinced that the woman who owns it can do no wrong even before really starting the book. On a side-note, the man didn’t seem too bad either, once the fake relationship started getting on. Jules Rodriguez proved a standout character for me: her sunny optimism, the unfailing love for her small town and friends rendering her a very likeable character along with her anti-social best friend whose combative set up with Quinn already promises an intriguing sequel. Adam Meyer, on the other hand, isn’t too much of a slouch either, even if his restless wanderlust can’t seem to be conquered by anything else other than a large, bucking creature as wild as him.
For all its quirky characters and small-town antics, ‘Foolproof Love’ isn’t an unpredictable read. It begins with an impulsive act, a fake relationship with the town’s tumbleweed to toss off the tosser of an ex, heads towards the disaster you know it will become and how it will eventually end. I did take issue with the really quick turnaround after Jules’s and Adam’s falling out, but it’s a story that still managed to work beyond the frame of their relationship. A distinct highlight of the book is its well-crafted supporting characters that step in and out as mouthpieces and flashes of the past and ‘Foolproof Love’ does it well enough to make me want the next few books in the series immediately.
