Madeline Stiles is a beautiful, successful, independent thirty-year-old who seems to have it all--but appearances can be deceiving. And when her sister Christa is left by her fiancé on the way to their lavish wedding, the light begins to shine on just how unhappy the Stiles women really are. Both have demons from the past but Madeline’s keep her from moving forward in the area of love. Her obsession with a former lover leaves her even more heartbroken and desperate. And it’s that state of mind that often leads Madeline back into the arms of her on again, off again lover Sidney- the man who loves her unconditionally despite how she treats him. Even when Madeline falls in love with someone else Sidney can’t let her go and breaks a lot of hearts, including his own, in his quest to get her back.
Madeline's friends Tamia, Avis, Raye Ann, and Deidra are just as unlucky in love and try desperately to navigate the pitfalls of dating and relationships while searching for that perfect someone. A daunting task in itself, but it's made even more so by the fact that each of the women has a secret, one they'll do anything to protect. It’s only at Avis’s 40th birthday party, the last place any of them suspect, that ALL of their secrets are exposed! Trust is broken and relationships are destroyed beyond repair. Will any of them be able to pick up the pieces after playing the role of . . . Love’s Fool

A story that brings out emotions This was my first read from Diamond Drake, and I enjoyed this read from her. It wasn’t the type of romance I’d initially expected when I picked it up, but then again, that’s the beauty of Love’s Fool. There were plenty of twists and turns, and some definite moments where you wanted to reach into the pages and choke some sense into them. For that, I have to give Diamond kudos, that doesn’t happen to me very often when I’m reading. I’m used to keep up with all of the characters that were thrown into the mix, and the secrets that each of them kept were crazy to say the least! There wasn’t a sense of getting lost in the story or having the characters lose their voices or feel like one character was like the others. Hopefully sometime in the future we will get a chance to know some of the characters a little more in a follow up novel (insert hint-hint here LOL). The sex scenes were hot and sexy, too, but not too over the top to where it felt like it was unbelievable, either. The mystery of how the secrets were almost revealed were a good touch, and I am a big fan of trying to guess exactly what happened or what the secret might have been, so that aspect of the book had me hooked. Love’s Fool put me in the mind of the first time I fell in love, and the first time I was a fool for someone I thought I loved. If you want a story that brings out emotions you never thought you’d have toward fictional characters, pick up this book. -Reviewed by Shakir
Love's Fool had it all--romance, drama, and believable characters and situations. Very well written. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
