Fool for Love by Felice Stevens Release Blitz

Can there be a second chance for a first love?

When Presley Dawson falls in love with a married man, he knows it’s wrong but can’t help himself. For the first time he’s wanted and desired and not so lonely. When his lover returns to his husband, Presley doesn’t worry. He always comes back—until he doesn’t.

Years later, Presley is stuck in neutral and lonelier than ever. He can’t forget his past and doesn’t know how to reach for his future. When his best friend suggests a support group to work through his grief, Presley agrees but without much hope; nothing has helped before. At the first meeting, he’s instantly attracted to Nate and struggles not to fall so far, so fast. He won’t be fooled again.

Nate Sherman is only attending a support group to get his family off his back. True, he hasn’t slept through the night in over three years, but he has reasons. Discovering your father—the man you love and idolize—is a liar and a cheater will do that. And dying in his girlfriend’s bed? No wonder Nate has trust issues.

Meeting Presley changes everything. Nate sees Presley’s sweet nature and good heart and when he sets boundaries for their relationship, Nate surprises himself by willingly going along. With Presley by his side, Nate is able to sleep again and find the trust that he’s lost in himself and other people. He can even fall in love.

But Presley is keeping a secret and if he tells Nate, it could be the end of everything between them. He knows it’s wrong to start another relationship based on a lie. But it isn’t a lie if you don’t say anything.

Is it?

4.5 stars of absolute goodness

I am delighted to have had the opportunity to read this first book in a new series – and will definitely be looking out for future installments. After all, at some point Frisco needs to find 'the one' too (please!).

Young Presley made a bad mistake a decade ago when he fell for Jared, who paid him lots of attention, except in public, as he was married. Dying in a car crash, Jared left Press deep in a rut of grief and despair. His best friend Frisco has finally persuaded him to go to a grief group, where his whole life is turned right way up – thanks to fellow member Nate.

Of course, there are some pretty big mountains of truth facing both men, as they find a way to let go of their grief and anger, and learn that no one is blameless. Their immediate attraction is both a blessing and a curse, as both of them need more than a hook-up, but aren't really sure they want the danger of opening themselves up to feelings. Nate's previous solution was meaningless hook-ups and Presley's was absolute celibacy (for 6 whole years!), so they need to work out how to behave now.

I loved that Press ran his own antique shop, and enjoyed the details, which were just enough to be interesting but never too much. It gave us a good impression of Press being his own man, successful enough, even if not moneyed. He is, however, lonely and in need of living. Nate comes from money and is a successful lawyer – he is also lonely but needs to live less and love more.

A really good story with some very steamy scenes, as well as some difficult decisions having to be made. Thank you, Felice Stevens, and I really am looking forward to book two.

I stayed up all night just so I could finish this book. I didn't want to go to sleep before finding out how it ended. The author has a way for bringing you into the story, so you feel like you are living it at the same time the characters are. Presley and Nate both have issues to work out, each one needing to move forward but having a hard time. I immediately fell in love with Nate but had a hard time liking Presley at first, due to my personal feelings about cheating. This book grabbed me from the first chapter and didn't want to let me go. There were some steamy scenes and lots of pulling on the heartstrings. This book was a great start to a new series, and I can't wait to see who is in the next book.

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, my characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
