Only fools jump...and Zoey Porter is no fool. At least not anymore. One tiny mistake when she was eighteen led to two very real consequences—the kind that keep you up all night and demand breakfast in the morning.

The only thing Zoey has time for these days is dry shampoo, energy bars, and that magical photo filter that erases the circles under her eyes.

So when Elliott MacCallister knocks on the door like a #nofilternecessary god, Zoey knows she’s in serious trouble.

With Elliott as the newly-minted resident of her boss’s pool house, keeping her distance is easier said than done.

Time to stock up on wine, cookies, and a portable fan. This summer just got complicated.

Only Fools Jump is like cotton candy for your soul—light and sweet. It’s a full length, standalone romantic comedy. It’ll be impossible to stop smiling after you devour this perfect summer read.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Zoey is balancing school, her two daughters, and her job as a nanny. She has managed to keep her daughters a secret from her boss since the woman is very strict. Thankfully, she pays well and Zoey enjoys being a nanny to Stewart. What Zoey wasn’t counting on was her boss Samantha having a younger and sexy brother. Sparks fly when they meet but Zoey doesn’t want anything to happen with Elliot or she will be fired.

Zoey is a very fun heroine. Reading about her interactions with her two daughters and then with Stewart prove how good of a person and mother she really is. Elliot is the guy for everyone. The guy is good-looking, has a great personality, he’s great with kids, and he knows how to cook! I mean, what more do you want, right?

There’s only a few millimeters between our legs and it feels like my entire universe resides in that tiny breadth of space.

There isn’t much else to say about this novel. The story revolved a lot around the romance, and didn’t leave much to other things. I wish a few others had been explored. I would have loved to see more of Elliot with Zoey’s daughters. There wasn’t much resolution to Zoey’s studies/career of choice and I would have loved to know more about that. I am curious for Zoey’s sister and I’m hoping she gets a book of her own.

Overall, Only Fools Jump is a cute romance story. Unfortunately, it needed to be developed a lot more.
