Title: Foolproof
Author: Jennifer
Publisher: Entangled Embrace
Release Date: January 26, 2015

A summer of seduction...Jules Carmichael needs to get her
life together. Pronto. School's been hell, there was that tiny stint
in rehab, and worst of all, she's lost her cushy summer job. The only available
work is at Office Jax, home of horrid 90s music and the biggest jerk on this
side of the galaxy...

Recovering from a brutal break-up and taking a hiatus from college, Ryan
DeShane has just discovered the “6 Ultimate Steps to the Perfect Summer Fling.”
It's a brilliant distraction, and Jules is a tantalizing target. But the
“steps” work a little too well, because he and Jules are definitely,
uh, flinging. And it's only a matter of time before Ryan's foolproof plan
starts to seriously unravel...

TeriLyn's thoughts: Foolproof is the second installment in Jennifer Blackwood’s Drexler University series but can be read as a standalone novel. This New Adult story, told from the points of view of both the hero and heroine, is college based about two people fighting to discover what they want from their future while struggling to make their families understand it’s a decision each of them has to make on their own. Ryan and Jules meet while working in an office supplies store Ryan’s father owns. After a shaky start to their friendship, endless banter and flirting ensues.

The banter and flirting between these two characters is definitely my favorite part of the story. Without the spark of snark the author provides or the clever flirting I'm not sure I would have finished Foolproof. Ryan and Jules, together, are quite witty and irresistible to each other even though they’re each fighting that undeniable attraction. I also enjoyed how their relationship developed even though at times it was juvenile. However, I felt disconnected from the characters. The depth of the story being not much more than a current, fast-paced situation. I didn’t feel as if I was being told a story and couldn’t get into the flow of the writing so it was just on okay New Adult read for me. I have not read book one in the series and being I wasn’t enthralled completely with Ryan and Jules’ story I’m not in any hurry to read book one or continue with the series.
