This was my first romance by Beth Ciotta and it will certainly not be my last.  Fool for Love has most of the things I enjoy most in my romances, a broken-hearted heroine, a over-bearing hero, a crazy cast of secondary characters and decedent desserts, how can you go wrong?

A broken-hearted, Chloe Madison comes to Sugar Creek after taking a companion/cook position with Daisy Monroe, a senior member of the Cupcake Lovers and Grandmother of Devlin Monroe, our strikingly handsome, over-bearing, bossy-pants hero.  As the oldest child in the Monroe family, Dev feels the responsibility of caring for his family, especially his Gran, who has a mile long wild streak.  Devlin doesn't trust Chloe and he isn't shy about her knowing it, but the truth is that as much as he doesn't trust her, he also wants to take off all her clothes and spend a few hours, or days, alone with her until his lust is sated.  This could be a problem.

Chloe has been dealing with controlling men all of her life, from her father to her last cheating boyfriend, Ryan.  So when it comes to Devlin Monroe, she isn't going to be a pushover, even if his kisses make her girly parts all tingly.  Between trying to keep Daisy out of trouble, keeping Dev off her pa-tooty, and trying to help the Cupcake lovers out-smart their current president, Chloe has her hands full, and falling in love with Dev is something she is trying to avoid. 

Chloe and Dev have the kind of chemistry that will keep you turning page after page just to see what will happen next. 

We also get a sneak peak of what is to come in the cupcake lovers series.  We have Rocky, Dev's sister and two men who could steal her heart, then we have sexy, little brother Luke and womanizing, cousin Nash, who could have their own romances coming. I can't wait to find out who is next to fall in love in Sugar Creek.

I would definitely recommend Fool for Love to anyone who loves a sweet, small town romance.  If you enjoyed Hope Ramsay's Last Chance series, you will love Fool for Love

Enjoy and Happy Reading!!
