Blog Tour 'Lovefools' by Avery Hale

Welcome at my stop on the ‘Lovefools’ blog tour. I’m really excited to participate in this tour and I hope you enjoy your stay! ;)

About the Book:

As the great Jane Austen once said, "We are all fools in love."
Twenty-two year old Phinegan Swift is no exception to that rule. In fact, she’s been accused of being a certifiable lovefool. But she’s proud to wear her heart on her sleeve and risk it all for love. 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?

This book is available at Amazon,  Barnes and Noble, Smashwords and Kobo.

My Review:


When I read the blurb about ‘Lovefools’ it immediately sounded like my kind of book. A love story based in a beautiful country. What can possible be bad about it?
I participated in the cover reveal of ‘Lovefools’ at June 24th  and I seriously loved the cover. The cover of ‘Lovefools’ is just very natural and thankfully it fitted this book perfectly. So you can understand I was very excited to start in this book.

In ‘Lovefools’ we follow Phinegan Swift. Phinegan is heartbroken ever since her boyfriend broke her heart in a trillion little pieces. Thankfully, Phin has Dez, her best friend who also happens to be a complete man-eating-sex-addict. Dez is determined to make Phin forget about her bad ex. But Phin isn’t easily distracted. That is until she meets Byron. And soon the only thing to get Phin from thinking about her ex is the extremely handsome Byron. But who is this man?
Byron is a mystery man who Phin met on the airport. Somehow Phin and Byron keep bumping into each other and soon Phin finds herself being swept of her feet. But Byron is keeping secrets and Phin isn’t prepared to get her hard broken all over again.

‘Lovefools’ is the perfect summer-time read. From the first page on I liked this story. It’s easy to read, funny and there’s a nice dose of friendship and love concealed in this book. I can totally see myself reading this book with a cocktail in my hand while lying on a nice beach. But it was also totally worth reading on my sunny balcony. LOL
Although this book travels very fast sometimes (I mean there a declarations of love after the third meeting :|) I still really enjoyed it. I loved the chemistry between Phin and Byron, and the best friend Dez really made me laugh a lot. In the beginning of this book there where many times when I wanted to scream at Phin to not be so damn stupid. Phin was pining over her stupid ex and I really wanted to smack her in the face. Thankfully Dez was not afraid to open up her mouth, and she told Phin what I really would like to have said to her if this was real life.

The one down fall about this book was the length. I really would have loved to read more about Phin and Byron. This book was just too short. But at the other hand I don’t think this book would ever be long enough. 



"That saying about love being blind is right. But whoever came up with that quote forgot to add the part about love making you blind. Not to mention the painful part about being blindsided by love.
Now that it’d happened to me, I was sure the world would never look the same to me again.
I used to be a believer in love—real love. That white knight, fairy-tale, til-the-end-of-time kind of love. But that was before yesterday, when I got sucker punched by the only thing I’d ever really believed in.
And now, I didn’t know what to believe in."
