Title: ”Fool For Love” (Believe #2)
Author: Karen Ferry
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 27th April, 2016
What do you do when everything you thought you knew about yourself turns out to be a lie, forcing you to re-evaluate your life?
Do you face them?
Or do you run?
My name is Suzy. I am the girl who has always believed in fairytales, unicorns, and that wishing upon a shooting star would make all my dreams come true.
I have always had faith that I would find my very own Prince Charming. I have always been certain that we all have a soul mate…that we will find our true love someday, and that we must never give up.
But not that long ago, I started to wonder…
What if my Prince is in fact…a Princess?
Why is it so hard to be seen for who I am?
Love is love, isn’t it?
I have started to lose faith in my once so adamant beliefs: where is my one? Where is the person who will be able to restore my faith in the fairy-tale and the happy-ever-afters?
Is New York the right place for someone like me? Or will she squish me like a small, insignificant bug beneath her feet?
Only time will tell.

Thank you so much Ms.Ferry for sending me an ARC of Fool for Love!! I am so very honored and extremely grateful! When i saw your book pop up on my Kindle i freaked out and couldn’t wipe the huge grin off of my face! 🙂
5 Heart-touching and Incredibly Sweet Stars!!
I was beyond excited to finally read Ms.Ferry’s work after having heard so many lovely things about her writing! I wasn’t disappointed in the least bit and i am most definitely picking up her first book very soon as well! It’s books like this one that make me realize how much i love reading and feeling as if i get mini vacation for a few hours while i slip away in-between the pages. It was very realistic and brought up many topics that usually aren’t in many romance novels today but this is no ordinary romance novel my fellow book lover it’s a journey of life and how the upsides are just as great as the downsides.
When you read someone else’s words and they have the power to touch you in such a way that you are determined that no matter what happens to you in years to come you will keeping moving forward but most importantly live. Also, when i come to terms with the full effect of an author’s words i have this need to tell them so if Ms.Ferry is reading this all i can say is Thank You for writing this book and even though we’ve never met i truly think that you are such a beautiful soul. 🙂
Suzy Christensen was a character that was just trying her best to live her life and find out where she was meant to be. Struggling to forget a certain blow up she had back home in Denmark she seeks solace in New York City. She wasn’t the type of character to hide who she was nor who she loved which in my opinion made her totally rock as a person. I thought she was sweet and demanded that people be truthful with her which isn’t asking much but a lot at the same time to certain people. She was a very strong individual as well. Suzy is a rare heroine that honestly doesn’t care what others think of her ,she is who she is, and i hope to take a lot from her character in the sense of just being me without caring if people think i’m goofy or weird because i like certain music or flavor of ice cream.
Garrett Thompson was a character burdened by his past with no clear end in sight. I was happy that he had his own point of view because at times i had to know what was going on in his head and why he reacted the way he did in certain situations. He was very much the swoon worthy alpha male and i wish i could be his love he’s just that darn perfect. Garrett was a tortured soul after a horrific thing happened in his life which led him to downward spiral and being a very closed off person. I couldn’t help but become giddy when he showed emotion and the growth of his character really impressed me. At many points during the story my love for him came at a crossroads and not to one that led to hate but more of a one that was more of a ‘Come on dude open your eyes and heart already’.
I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a read that’s deep but not in a sad way but a very happy way and many moments where you may reflect on your own life enough to bring a sort of enlightenment into ones mind. It’s sexy with sweetness and thoughtfulness all rolled into one. One-click this outstanding story today! I really hope you love it as much as i do! 🙂 5 Stars all around!!
I nod and just stare unseeingly out the windows behind the TV. My mind is addled by sleep, and I can’t focus on anything.
I raise my hand and point half-heartedly in the direction of the bed behind us.
“I’m just going to go to bed,” I mumble and stand up.
“Sure. Before you do…” Garrett’s voice trails off and I look at him, my brows raised in question.
“I need your phone number.”
I frown. “Why?”
“Because we’re living together, and if we need to get a hold of each other, it’s easier to do if I have your number. No more notes.” His stare is fixed on me, and there’s a stubborn set to his mouth.
I nod once and shrug lightly. “I guess it makes sense. Do you have your mobile on you?”
He takes it out of his back pocket, and I rattle off my number. He presses a few keys before swiping the screen.
“I just sent you a text so you have mine.”
“Great.” I yawn loudly and quickly cover my mouth.
Garrett’s lips twitch into a crooked half-smile, and my heart skips a beat.
“Goodnight,” he whispers. I smile quickly and turn my back on him.
As I get under the covers, my smile returns when I hear him call Rufus to him. I glance surreptitiously at him, and my heart melts when I find him standing up, Rufus on his hind legs and Garrett holding onto the front paws planted on his chest. It kind of looks like a man hug – just with a man and a dog instead.
“What did I tell you about the furniture?” Garrett mumbles, but Rufus’ tail only increases in speed. “You’re impossible.” He shakes his head but grins as he does it, eyes crinkling at the corners. This is just too freaking much for me.
Garrett quickly kisses Rufus on the head before releasing him, and my heart drops to my feet when his eyes meet mine. I look down quickly and turn on my side, my back to him. I hope like hell that he can’t hear the way my heart is racing away just now. Realistically, I know that he can’t, because of the distance between us, but it beats so loudly, I’m not entirely sure. My ears pick up on his feet walking away from me, and I sigh as quietly as possible.
Damn you, Garrett. Why did you have to show me that you have a heart?
