As the emancipated child of a
world-renowned rockstar, Mandy Miller does everything she can
to make it on her own merit. She also makes sure not to fall
into the same pitfalls that come with the entertainment way of
life. Waking up after a night of too much drinking with a
devilishly handsome stranger is not her finest moment and
totally out of character for the way she’s chosen to live her
life. As Mandy comes to grips being the manager of a band
filled with turmoil, she is willing to see if the blond cowboy
with the Spanish tongue has more possibilities than just a bad
decision. Joe Paloma knows he has a reputation of being a male
slut but having your heart torn to shreds can make a man do
things he will later regret. Mandy makes him believe there is
a possibility that his desires for “happily ever after” aren’t
just a pipe dream.
When I picked up Love Fool
I had certain expectations of how the story would flow. As a
fan of Anna J. Evans, I always expect exceptional sex,
continuously funny dialogue and a story that warms my heart.
This time I have to admit I only got two out of the three.
Mandy and Joe’s relationship was hot and heavy but so much
more complicated than that. These were two individuals who’d
both been disappointed by the pain that comes with extreme
disillusionment. The term two peas in a pod suited these two
perfectly, sexually and emotionally they connected in ways
most of us will never know. There was also the sideline story
of the band Mandy was managing with its own set of drama that
turned this into a story laced with crisis but a lot of hope.
Ms. Evans really stepped up her arsenal with a tale that
showed her fans that she’s a well rounded author and can do
more than just make us all laugh, she can also make us shed a
tear or two.
