As one of the hottest radio personalities, Kayla, the Gossip Queen, has the fast-paced, glamorous life that many dream of. But one thing eludes her. Love. Growing up in a family where her father was nothing more than a monthly check, Kayla sets her sights on finding true love, even if he comes attached to another. She’s determined to create the perfect family of husband, wife, home, and children--even if she has to slip up and make a ton of mistakes along the way.
After a decade of being with a man who constantly makes her question her role in his life and her vision of the perfect family, Kayla has to ask herself, "Am I right to fight for this love, or am I being foolish?"
CLG Review of Foolish
4 (out of 5) lattes
Every once in a while, I come across a character that makes me want to throttle them because of the choices they make. Kayla, the main character of Donneil D. Jackson's Foolish is one of those characters. And because of my need to throttle, I felt compelled to continue reading to learn of her ultimate fate. Kayla is a hot radio personality. She's beautiful, leads a glamorous life, and wants nothing more than to find love, settle down, and live happily ever after (HEA) with her family and her fabulousness. When she meets Shawn, Kayla thinks she has found THE ONE, but the ten years of roller coaster living with him, full of betrayals, lies, affairs, and heartache, says differently. The big question of Foolish is will Kayla continue to make excuses and stay in her relationship: is she foolish, or is it really love? Jackson gives us a character we want to follow until the book's ending; we want to see the drama unfold--and there is so much drama that unfolds. We want to see how her friends, whose lives are just as dramatic and fabulous, affect what Kayla does or doesn't do in her pursuit to find her slice of HEA. Foolish and Jackson's development of Kayla will definitely make you emote and react... and will make you think about JUDGING. Do we judge the Kaylas of the world, or do we try to understand what makes them tick and empathize?
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
