Isabel Beebe thinks she's cursed in the romance department Her teenage crush Ford Hendrix ignored all her letters Her husband left her for anotherman So Isabel has comeGuard trainer Ford like a sucker punch Back when heartbreak made him join the military her sweet letters kept him sane Now he can't take his eyes or his lips off her The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool's Gold forever if three little words can convince Isabel to do the sam I had a really difficult time getting over the eww or ick factor of The hero was the 1st lover to the heroine's older sister now 14 years later he's now sleeping with the younger sister the heroine I just thought that was gross Hence the ick factorOnce I pushed that to the back of my mind the story wasn't that badHowever I'm not planning on reading any of the Fool's Gold books It's a small town And while it can't be classified as inbreeding too many people have slept with so and so or they were married to so and so and now this person is sleeping with them and it's just a tangled up jumbled mess I don't like books like this To me it's disgusting and I certainly don't want to waste my time reading about itToo many books today think of this as romance No one is ever a virgin they've had kids with someone else been divorced or slept around with different people and now are ready to settle down The writers may think this is how the world is today and it is to some extent but there are still people out there with morals and I don't think they want to read about this kind of stuff any than I do Also I think the authors who write these books are also encouraging this kind of behavior because the readers just accept that this is the way the world is today so it's alright to behave this way I'm not a fan of Christian romance novels either I just like romance novels and have been reading them a long time However the tone of the books have changed so much over the past few years making it seem like it's no big deal to have slept around as long as you used a condomI'd really like to see the writers and publishers go back to a wholesome romantic style of writing To me romance is not going on a first date and then sleeping with them They may think that's how society leans but I know there has to be of us out there who aren't that way
