A summer of seduction...
Jules Carmichael needs to get her life together. Pronto. School's been hell, there was that tiny stint in rehab, and worst of all, she's lost her cushy summer job. The only available work is at Office Jax, home of horrid 90s music and the biggest jerk on this side of the galaxy...
Recovering from a brutal break-up and taking a hiatus from college, Ryan DeShane has just discovered the “6 Ultimate Steps to the Perfect Summer Fling.” It's a brilliant distraction, and Jules is a tantalizing target. But the “steps” work a little too well, because he and Jules are definitely, uh, flinging. And it's only a matter of time before Ryan's foolproof plan starts to seriously unravel...
Jennifer Blackwood is an English teacher and New Adult author. She lives in Oregon with her husband, son, and poorly behaved black lab puppy. When she isn’t writing or teaching, she’s binging on Veronica Mars episodes and white cheddar popcorn. Her debut novel, UNETHICAL, comes out October 20th from Entangled Embrace.
Foolproof was a cute story. I enjoyed it. It was light and airy, and just a good time. It was fun to read and it kept me turning the pages. The story has a nice flow, and it’s easy to keep up with.
I really liked Ryan and Jules. They both had some family issues going on that needed dealt with, and, like normal college age kids that are afraid of disappointing their parents, the issues took a little time to work through. These two complement each other. It was fun reading their relationship. They had a lot of fun together, and got along well…for the most part. There was an incident or two, but there always is.
Just one little tiny issue, and this is really just an issue of mine, personally. This story almost had the insta-love factor. I say almost, because it wasn’t instant, but it felt that way, if that makes sense. These two had only known each other for a month before they start discussing deep feelings. It’s probably just me, but I feel like that’s a bit soon. Again, that’s a personal issue.
I would recommend this book if you don’t mind the insta-love thing, and also if you’re looking for a light and fun read. I enjoyed Foolproof. Read the whole thing in one sitting.
