It’s been thirteen years since Hope Moore left Devil’s Falls, land of sexy cowboys and bad memories. Back for the weekend, she has no intention of seeing the man she never got over…or the two of them getting down and dirty. It’s just a belated goodbye, right? No harm, no foul.
Until six weeks later, when her pregnancy test comes back positive…
Daniel Rodriguez hasn’t forgiven himself for how things went down with Hope all those years ago. He knows she’s better off without him, but when she shows up on his doorstep, panicking because she’s pregnant with his baby, he can’t help seeing it as a chance to make up for the past.
Too bad Hope has no intention of going along with his plans.

When I read the first book in this series, Foolproof Love, I was immediately curious about the stories of these individuals who were broken by an accident that changed their lives. We met Adam in the first book, Quinn in the second book, and Daniel and Hope in this series finale. They were best friends who did everything together but grew apart when tragedy struck and challenged their friendship. They found different ways to cope with the loss and grief but eventually learned to face it in this series.
Ever since the end of the second book, Fool Me Once, I was highly anticipating the next one. Daniel and Hope’s story was probably my most-awaited in this series. I was ecstatic to finally know their whole story -- I love books with second chance romance! Unlike Adam and Quinn, Daniel and Hope had more than friendship, there's romantic history between them. And when they’d gone their separate ways, not only did they lose their friends, they also lost one another and the future that they’ve always dreamed of together.
I understand the reservations each of the main characters have with each other in this book. Hope has worked through her issues but going back to Devil's Falls after thirteen years, seeing Daniel again, and memories come rushing back. I really admire the strength of this girl but sometimes it's hard to like her especially when she's being stubborn. I don't know what to say about Daniel since I think his character is mainly the one being developed here. I was kind of disappointed with how their story was told and how it progressed. Things happened really fast and it wasn't what I have in mind when it comes to rekindling a love story. The book was so rushed that I didn't get the chance to experience the emotions burn and REALLY feel it.
I like the series all in all but I gotta say it's the first one, Foolproof Love, that I liked the most. They're all very fast and steamy reads that's perfect to immerse yourself in in one sitting.

He turned to find Hope standing behind him. Again. “You sure move quiet when you want to.” Especially for a woman with a bum leg. Not that he could say as much without sounding like a jackass.
“You mean since I had my knee replaced.” Of course she knew what he meant anyway. Apparently damn near reading his mind was one annoying habit she hadn’t outgrown.
“I didn’t say that.”
“You didn’t have to.” She leveraged herself down next to him, the move not quiet as smooth as it’d been when she was eighteen.
Daniel almost cursed. He had to stop doing that. Comparing her now to how she was then wasn’t fair to either of them. It was another lifetime completely, and thinking about it was just fucking depressing. “Hope—”
“Are you seeing anyone?”
He was so surprised by the question that he answered honestly, “Why the fuck would I bother?”
“Oh, I don’t know, because you don’t want to be a creepy old man who lives in the middle of nowhere and has to run off silly high school kids with his shotgun because they tell ghost stories about him?”
He looked at her, half sure that she was the one who’d lost her damn mind. “That’s not a thing.”
“It is most definitely a thing.” She leaned back on her hands and stared at the sky. The most move arched her back and pressed her breasts against the fancy tank top she wore. It was made of some kind of drapey fabric that looked soft and shiny, and it highlighted the fact that he seriously doubted she was wearing a bra. “You’re too young to just give up.”
“It’s not about giving up.” Though he didn’t expect Hope to understand that. He’d checked up on her a few times since the accident, and every single time he was amazed at the things she’d accomplished. Life had kicked her in the teeth and she’d come back swinging. She’d taken two years off and then attended the University of Texas and graduated with honors. She ran her own successful consulting business to work with companies that wanted to set up scholarships and nonprofits.
She shifted to look at him. “It looks like giving up from where I’m sitting.”
