Fool For You (For You Series, #1)Fool For You by Megan Noelle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The title really nails it down. It uses the exact word I would use (Well... with maybe some profanity) to describe Dani. A Fool! But I am getting ahead of myself.

I absolutely loved this book. It shows how everyone is "damaged", well some more than others, and their inabilities to move past the events that have made them this way.

My Dani

Dani/Danielle was self-confident, driven, open and self-assured in business. In love she was none of those things. When her family needed her to look after the family business she came back to the home that she had long ago left. The place she swore she would never go back to, Serenity Cove. As soon as she sets foot on Serenity Cove she runs into her first love, Oliver. A person that she has always carried a torch for. Seeing him stirs feelings in her that she desperately wants to get rid of. (I instantly didn't like him, but it may be just me)

My Oliver
Trying to distract herself from the unwanted feelings Oliver has caused. Dani goes to the local bar where she meets a sexy, charming, tattooed, smoking hot bartender, Corey. He is just the type of distraction that she needs.

My Corey
"I'm here tonight because for once I don't want to think about anything. I don't want to worry about the bullshit that goes along with emotions; I just want to have fun."

"So why didn't you come with friends?" Corey asked; placing his elbows back on the bar. Matching his posture I did the same.

"Because the kind of fun I'm looking for, isn't the kind where I need a group of my friends around."

Oh Yes, Corey is exactly what she needs!!!
Corey, Corey, Corey! I can't gush enough about Corey. He has made it into my top 5 book boyfriends for sure. Words can't even describe this yummylicious man. Well, I am sure they could but none of them would do him justice.

Oliver makes his feelings for Dani known (Ugh!)
Corey quickly became much more than a distraction. Dani, however, always kept her guard up. Burned too many times to count, she believed she must be the cause of all her relationships having gone awry.

"In my past I've had relationships with several different men. Sometimes the relationships lasted a couple of months and others much longer. They all cheated on me, lied to me, and/or made me feel like nothing more than a fool for believing the words that so easily spewed from their mouths."

For this reason she keeps all her walls firmly in place.
Corey, however, is always there for her when she needs someone. Quickly becoming her "person".

This moment. Having you here lying on me, resting with me... It means more to me than you could ever imagine, Danielle. Never before have I felt such peace with another person. Everything just feels right."

Dani doesn't want to be a fool and trust his words. Her heart is too battered. Even her best friend, Gabby, can see that she closes herself WAY TOO MUCH. Gabby had Dani make her a promise.

"Promise me you won't close yourself off so no one can even try to climb over the wire fence you've put up. You're too good of a person to go through life without someone by your side."

Will she keep this promise?
How will she overcome the damage that others have caused?
Is it Oliver or Corey who her heart wants?
When love stares her in the face, is she bound to forever be a FOOL and not take the leap?

This book made me a little nutty on some parts. At times, I was screaming at Dani, over her foolish ways. I was swooning over Corey. I was cursing at times at Oliver and his untimely appearances. The ending made me gasp out of sheer horror! Having said that, yes there is a cliffhanger. Just a warning for those of you that are like me and have a love/hate relationship with them. ;)

I can't wait to get more of this story in book two of the "For You" trilogy.
This is a fantastic novel by Megan Noelle. I am looking forward to what's to come from her. She made a fan out of me!

We cannot gush enough about this book! We LOVED it!!! Just for you guys...Here's
~An Excerpt ~
What I really wanted was Corey to work his magic and take away the pressures beating against me. My body craved the delicious release I knew he was capable of giving me. Him pressed against me, allowing me the chance to forget all that tortured my thoughts was what I needed. But then again I was too old for that, right? Without question I could handle the moment, without resorting to a college-level therapeutic release.
Fuck it.
"What's up, beautiful?" Corey asked on the second ring.
"Can you come over?" Jesus, I needed to at least try to hide the desperation resonating in my voice.
"Like right now?"
I thought about letting Corey know exactly what he was in store for if he came over. On the other hand if he was the player Bailey made him out to be, I figured he was smart enough to get it.
After a brief pause he answered. "On my way."
I disconnected the phone and flicked the cigarette out of my hand. The first thing I needed to do was get the cigarette smell off me. Corey would pick up on that in an instant and the proceeding lecture I was sure would deter from the hot-sweaty release I was looking for. After brushing my teeth three times and swishing around enough Listerine mouthwash to last my breath a year, I ran to my room.
Stripping out of my cigarette scented clothes I threw them into the closet. When I was down to just my lacy blue bra and matching booty short underwear I began spreading my best smelling lotion over my skin. My fingers, hands and arms received the bulk of the lotion but to make it less suspicious I moisturized all over. I yanked the hair tie out of my fingers immediately began undoing the braid. The braid ended up leaving my hair in a messy wave down my back that looked pretty sexy.
Originally, I planned to pull on another outfit that accentuated my curves, bust and bubble butt but what was the point? Staying in my lingerie saved time and eliminated any question about the purpose of his visit that evening.
The front door opened creating a mini-panic attack before I remembered I left the door unlocked when I got home. I had been more concerned with getting out back to smoke than locking up to protect myself.
"Dani?" Corey's voice called. "You really shouldn't leave your door unlocked like this." His concern warmed my heart as I left the bedroom at a slow pace to meet him, but that took too long.
When he came into view my legs took off running for him. Corey was ready for me as I jumped into his arms and latched my lips onto his. A groan of confusion mumbled against my mouth as he stumbled backwards at the initial contact. He quickly regained his footing as his hands held on tight to my thighs. The feel of the hardness I longed for pressed between my legs; I couldn't help myself as I moved my hips against his pelvis. A deep-throated growl escaped him as he pushed me hard against the wall.
Corey shoved me against the wall rougher than he normally did, but it didn't scare me or make the need  go away. Instead it made me crave him moreif that was even possible.
