Paper Fools by Staci Hart
Way back when, back in 2014, when I didn’t know what blogging was or the importance of reviews and was just a regular reader I picked up a book called Deer In Headlights by Staci Hart. I had no idea who she was at the time but I really loved the cover!
I read that book and the ones after it and fell in love. At that time the concept of what Staci had written was really refreshing to me. Not my “normal” but I loved it.
Three years on and Staci has become a personal favourite of mine. A best seller. A word wizard, with outstanding books. Staci has now reworked Deer In Headlights and produced PAPER FOOLS. And omg if i thought I loved it before, now I’m downright DEVOTED to it.
In Paper Fools, Staci has intricately mixed Greek Mythology with contemporary romance and the result is downright MAGICAL! Honestly, don’t let the Greek Mythology put you off, Staci has brought it right into the 21st century and made Greek gods even cooler!
This book is so refreshing, different and above all else CLEVER. Never once does the story dip or lose track despite the characters and “worlds” it follows. It’s addicting and basically covers EVERY SINGLE BASE that you could possibly wish to reach as a book lover.
Each and every character is FANTASTIC. I want to be a Greek goddess. I want to be Lex and have Dean all to myself. LORD. DEAN!!! I want to live in their world. I want to be played. I want to be player. I want it ALL.
There’s not a minute, of this book that I didn’t feel, enjoy and love! Once again Staci has proved she’s one of the best for a reason!
Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.
Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.
Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.
It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.
Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.
The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.
If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses.
