So I’m a HUGE Cat Grant fan. She writes m/m romance like no other, and I love her work. That being said, I was psyched to be able to read another of her pieces. However, this is book three in her Icon Men series, and I totally wish I would have read books one & two. That doesn’t mean I don’t like this one. Because I do. A lot. It’s just that when a book is so wonderfully written and it’s in a series, I want the full effect. So, I will definitely, with out a doubt, be grabbing books one and two in this series.
A FOOL FOR YOU brings us Chase and Brian’s story. Wow, is all I have to say. These two men are stunningly created and their back stories, as well as the present stories, are amazingly written and really pulled me to the center of the book. The emotions rolled through me the whole time I was reading their stories.
Brian and Chase are wonderfully created and really captured me. Their characteristics are real and came to life for me. I felt a part of them while I was reading. And the passion between these men as they fought to let go of the past, and embrace what was true and real, was intense!
This story of letting go and moving on, grabbing the present and aiming for the future, is one that I would recommend to everyone who loves a wonderful m/m romance novel. It’s exciting, intense, page-turning and breathtaking. Each page turn brings you a new look into Brian and Chase’s lives and will leave you happy to be a fool in love with reading! Well done once again, Ms. Grant!

Brian is realizing life doesn't always turn out as you planned and the people you care for most in the world aren't always looking out for your best interest. He's traveled all the way from Canada to New York with his boyfriend and their other band mate in hopes of making it big. Once there, Brian comes to find out some hard truths where his boyfriend of the past five years is concerned. Left feeling betrayed and all alone, Brian turns to the father he feels abandoned him five years ago. While dealing with his daddy issues, he turns to the one person he has come to respect and enjoy being around.
Chase is a fellow musician that has become smitten with Brian, but Brian hasn't a clue. Chase has a past of his own he would rather forget. After helping Brian collect his belongings from his old apartment, they share a kiss. From there sparks fly and a relationships starts to grow. Brian's life seems to be perfect, he's getting along with his father and his father's partner, and he's falling in love.
The bottom falls out of Brian's happy life when he discovers Chase has secrets he's been keeping from him. After being lied and cheated on by his ex, now Brian doesn't know if he can trust Chase with his heart.
Brian is a very likeable character that most people can relate to. He's still harboring resentment towards his father and his father's partner, for leaving him and his mother. Plus he's dealing with his mother's current marriage falling apart. Brian's been through a lot in his young life and all he wants is his own little piece of happiness. Chase is also seeking that same happiness but he's so ashamed of his past he fears Brian will leave him if he knows the truth. My heart went out to Chase because he has dealt with things that no one should have to suffer through.
Brian and Chase are a couple you want to be together. They have both suffered hardships in the past but together they can heal those wounds if they can accept that their only human and as humans we make mistakes. With love and forgiveness anything is possible.
A Fool for You is the third book in this series. After reading this story I will definitely be reading the two previous (and I didn't have a problem reading this as a standalone). This a sweet love story that will touch you heart. I highly recommend giving it a read.
