This was my first read from Diamond Drake, and I enjoyed this read from her.
It wasn’t the type of romance I’d initially expected when I picked it up, but then again, that’s the beauty of Love’s Fool. There were plenty of twists and turns, and some definite moments where you wanted to reach into the pages and choke some sense into them. For that, I have to give Diamond kudos, that doesn’t happen to me very often when I’m reading.
I’m used to keep up with all of the characters that were thrown into the mix, and the secrets that each of them kept were crazy to say the least! There wasn’t a sense of getting lost in the story or having the characters lose their voices or feel like one character was like the others. Hopefully sometime in the future we will get a chance to know some of the characters a little more in a follow up novel (insert hint-hint here LOL). The sex scenes were hot and sexy, too, but not too over the top to where it felt like it was unbelievable, either.
The mystery of how the secrets were almost revealed were a good touch, and I am a big fan of trying to guess exactly what happened or what the secret might have been, so that aspect of the book had me hooked.
Love’s Fool put me in the mind of the first time I fell in love, and the first time I was a fool for someone I thought I loved. If you want a story that brings out emotions you never thought you’d have toward fictional characters, pick up this book.
