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.
***While this is book #2 in The Believe Series, it can be read as a standalone novel. Due to the sexual nature and subjects addressed, it is not appropriate for readers under the age of 18.***
Being Karen Ferry's second novel, you would honestly have not thought that. The way this book was written between the plotlines, descriptions and characters, Ferry takes you on this amazing journey of finding love, self discovery and one's worth. I honestly could not get enough of Suzy and Garrett. Their ride is a bumpy roller coaster but what an epic journey it was!
Suzy was one of my favorite characters in Make Me Believe. She was fun and quirky yet she had this quiet, shy side that was on the edge of naive. She hits NYC to find herself and boy she found more than she bargained for. Garrett, for all his flaws, is one hot sexy alpha who could be best described as sin on a stick! The banter between Suzy and Garrett right from the start pulled me into their world of trying to deny their attraction to each other. Both Suzy and Garrett have scars that run deep and I think that they find a kinship with each other. When you find out Garrett's past, my heart broke and Suzy was just the right person to be there for him to help heal. I find that these two are the perfect match in discovering that you are worthy of love even if it's unexpected and irrational.
Overall, this book is one of my faves so far this year. Ferry writes a perfect world combining her own Danish heritage into one epic story. The flow and each little hiccup contributes perfectly in this amazing tale. I very much look forward to more from Ferry!
I contemplate Suzy’s state of mind the next morning. I don’t know why the need to take away her worries has taken root, but I can’t deny that it has. I can’t say that I care for it – our relationship is meant to be purely physical, after all – but the way her doe-eyes looked as I left her last night calls to all my protective instincts. Instincts that have been lying dormant for so many years now.
It’s part of a Dom’s nature to take away the worries of his sub. To see to her needs in every way. But this is different somehow. Perhaps the reason is because we live together; we get to see facets to each other’s characters that would be absent in a regular Dom/sub relationship.
Contrary to what the tabloids believe, I’m not a complete asshole. I take care of what is mine.
I just do it my own way – discreetly.
It was strangely difficult to leave her alone last night, but I didn’t know how to comfort her. I’m emotionally crippled, and while I know I could have made her forget her woes for a while if I had initiated another bout of fucking, I’m not that big of an asshole. I knew that’s not what she needed at that moment. But that’s all there’s left of me now; the means to physical release.
For now, I’ll let Suzy’s secrets rest; but I’m determined to find out what has her in such turmoil. This thing we have may only be temporary, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t offer her my protection if she needs it.

Karen loves Italian food and wine, travelling, and spending time with her family. When she is not writing, she reads – her favourite genres are New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Erotica and Romantic Suspense. She can never get enough of romance. Or of too many book boyfriends, either.
