It was an alright book. It had moments of humor and was super sexy I mean it was good it was a romance it just wasn’t anything special. The whole idea of the book was confidence and being yourself but obviously Penny wasn’t confident at all. She hid her insecurities behind a wall of fake confidence and acted like she was the coolest and had zero feelings. When it wasn’t true and she had zero confidence. I wanted to read a book about a confident up for a good time person. Instead I read a book about an insecure person who sleeps around as a bandaid to her issues. I didn’t like that. I wanted a modern woman who slept around because she wanted to and just hadn’t found a guy worth staying with. I didn’t like that they couldn’t talk to each other and that neither would admit their feelings causing a giant cluster of unnecessary drama that really didn’t do anything. I expected more and I’m pretty let down. Other than being a cliche romance it was decent. Well written and if you want a book like you’ve read a million times it’s the book for you. Maybe it’s because I’ve read all her other work and I just expected more from her. Or maybe it’s because I was expecting this confident woman who just slept with guys because she wanted to, spoke her mind, and really didn’t take any bullpoopy, and that’s not what I got. I even sent my friend the first sentence of the book like you know its going to be an amazing book when it starts like that. Unfortunately it was every rom com cliche in the book. Nothing wrong with the book but nothing really right about it either. Really it’s just my own expectations that ruined the book for me. However at the end seeing that the sequel to paper fools is coming out this year August made me crazy excited! I still love staci hart and can’t wait to read more by her this one just wasn’t it for me.
Happy reading until next time,
Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
