That is, until her high-powered lawyer boyfriend betrays her, breaks her heart, and causes her to question everything she ever believed in. Devastated by his betrayal, Phin escapes to Costa Rica for a week with her best gal pal, hoping to give her heart a chance to heal.
Dez—a foul-mouthed, man-eating sex-pot—makes it her mission to distract Phin from her breakup woes with a healthy dose of sun, fun,…and Costa Rican man-candy.
But the only man who catches Phin’s eye is a handsome and mysterious stranger she meets at the airport.
Byron is a guy whose angle Phin just can't figure out. All she knows is that he’s a thief... First, he tries to steal her luggage. Then, he tries to steals her massage. Finally, he tries to steal her heart.
But Byron has his own secrets—the real reason he’s in Costa Rica being one of them. When Phin uncovers his duplicity, she is faced with yet another heartbreak.
Things take a dramatic turn when a ghost from Phin’s past resurfaces to win her back...or so he claims.
Will Phin learn to believe in love again…or will love play her like a fool?

Title: Lovefools, (Fools in Love Series, Book 1)
Genre: A New Adult Contemporary Romance
Event Organized by: Drue's Random Chatter
We meet Phinegan Swift as she is going on vacation with her bold and brassy best friend Dez to Costa Rica. She just found out her long time lawyer boyfriend and now ex-boss Douglas was cheating on her. Dez has one mission for Phin to accomplish while in Costa Rica... get laid. Phin isn't sure she is up for that kind of fun like Dez is. At least until she meets Byron.
Byron has his own agenda and Phin is his job. Things get a little too intimate and he realizes she couldn't be what she is accused of. He begins to work a way to keep her safe, which becomes a real job, and keep her close.
Phin is a self proclaimed Lovefool and begins to wonder if this is a bad thing. Especially when her new Mr. Right has some serious secrets. And you can't have a good love story without the jerk ex Douglas trying to make another play! But Douglas has a secret agenda as well. Will Phin and Byron be able to overcome Byron's secrets and both be lovefools or will his secrets break them apart? Those are questions to find out!
I enjoyed this story. It had a few small twists that made it suspenseful and the romantic element was wonderful. I loved the interactions between Phin and Byron. They didn't come together easily and clashed together hard. But when they give in they give in. Question is will it be enough?
