Ok, so I liked the heroine, Kate, well enough. She's in a small town in North Carolina, just trying to keep things together. Her mom died and she's left with her no-so-helpful stepdad and her hormonal stepsister, Dina. Dina is hormonal because she's pregnant but won't tell anyone who the father is. Drama Mama!! Although when we first see Kate and Dina together, they don't look like they get along but as the book progresses, I really liked how they are together. Anyway, the reason I liked Kate is one of the reasons that I liked the relationship between Kate and Dina: everybody depends on Kate without knowing that they depend on Kate. Kate's trying to keep the household afloat and keep them from losing the house altogether and she's doing everything she can to help their family, not just with money but also with moral support, especially for Dina. She has a lot on her shoulders and pretty much asked for none of it. So I really felt for her. Then, when things aren't looking so good, something... someone comes along and throws a monkeywrench into all of it!
That monkeywrench is named Teague. He's an up and coming movie star who is about to hit the big time. But he has this little tiny secret that could possibly end his whole career. That secret is the reason for Teague's visit to Kate's hometown. But when he's spotted by some paparazzi, he has to ask Kate to rescue him. One thing leads to another and they are both caught in a lie that's grown to gargantuan size! It's actually pretty funny! But, as you may have guessed, Teague is not your typical, shallow movie star.Read more ›
Formatting / Appearance - There were no issues formatting wise.
Content - Kate & Teague are at different points in the life. Where one is successful, the other appears to be needy and in want of the finer things in life. When they meet, it takes awhile before the two can even get along properly. However, they put a show for the public eye that says otherwise. Will it work? That's what Lisa Scott lets the reader discover.
What I liked - The overall story appears predictable, almost like any romantic comedy. You know how it's going to end. But Lisa Scott's writing keeps the story and plot fresh.
What I didn't like - Nothing comes to mind.
Rating - 5 / 5 stars.
Disclosure - I received a complimentary copy from the author which did not affect my honest opinion.
While I enjoyed the Flirts, I really loved No Foolin' because in this full length book Lisa was able to write well-drawn and flawed characters and bring them around almost full circle to overcome their fears and their pasts and get to the HEA.
I liked that the plot twists weren't those of "mis-communication" and "if only I'd asked a question it would be all cleared up" type that I've seen in some romances. The primary plot and the two secondary plots melded well and even though I was hoping for a HEA there were a few times when I wondered if it was going to happen! Spoiler alert: it does!
The heroine, Kate, proved that she could be happy and fulfilled without having the hero, Teague, in her life and I liked that she didn't go home from her adventures pining for him, but jumped back into making a life for herself so she could forget about him. The hero's transformation was also great because he had the thread of goodness in him all along (in the secondary plot) but it was brought full force at the end of the book when everything was wrapping up.
It was a satisfying read with flawed characters that were easy to fall in love with and root for until they resolved their issues and found their HEA! I'm looking forward to the second in the series!
