Ex-model Paige McCarty is fed up with being just a pretty face. After her ex-husband’s gambling problem left her royally screwed and tragically shoeless, she started Fool Me Once Investigations with her best friends, Lorlei and Kennedy, to prevent other women from being similarly played and dismayed.
The job: Act as bait for a cheating husband. The target: Matt Russo. The case should be as easy as getting a man’s attention - and Paige has never had trouble with that. The problem is Matt - in all his nerdy-hot glory - turns out to be not such a scumbag after all.
And when the case hits closer to home than Paige could ever have imagined - landing her in a face-off with the mob - she wonders if taking the job just to prove that she has a brain maybe wasn’t her best idea.
This second outing for the Fool Me Once team follows in the same fun, feisty footsteps as best-selling author Tara Sivec’s Shame on You.

Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
This series is light, easy and fun . Not everything we read must be serious. There's no moral story, it's taking your brain out to lunch! We all need that from time to time.
I call this series my guilty pleasures books....so light,despite the bad guys, and fun despite the giggly girl stuff. I know they will get the guy(s)--both the bad one and Prince Charming. The narrator is great in this series, she is consistent in the voices she uses for each character. I have seen some titles from this author that sound more somber and serious, I think I will try one of those next.
Lots of close friends and family interaction. I liked Paige working so hard to find her self-worth beyond being a pretty face as a model. Matt is fun, and nerdy-sexy. Paige’s ex is a royal pain in the butt. Paige’s mom and her friends are hysterical!
My only complaint is that the book is quite short, I wish it was longer.
Excellently performed by Amy McFadden.
Well, I enjoyed the story. I read it a long time ago when I first joined the KU program. I recently discovered that could get some audio books through KU as well. That is why I chose this one. I like to listen to books that I have already read. I would best describe the narration as cute. At times though, it was almost too cute & ditzy. Good book overall.
Not sure why all the negative comments. This book is just as cute as the first one. All I can think is they just didn't read the summary before buying. This isn't your hardcore mystery with down & dirty characters. It's light, FUN reading.
Fun, but not as fun as the first book in the Fool Me Once series. A lot of eye roll moments and forced ridiculousness but I was entertained. I still want to continue with the next book. The narrator is okay, she fit the character's.
I need a second job to support my Audible addiction.
Definitely a short and easy listen. The characters are hysterical and the narrator is one of the BEST I've ever heard. She brings the story alive!
can't wait to finish the third book :-) I love when writers set the books to go in order and in time line as well as events that changes some of the dynamic.. I'll deff. ready this one again :-)
"A great performance"
I use this as the strap line because, having listened to this narrator performi on the other two Fool Me Once novels, she is very good with voices and dialects! So much so, that I hated the main characters' voice! Hated it! She did it so well!!
So my advice to you is, listen to a sample first - just in case you truly can't stand it! It's just right for this character, but it's really grating to listen to!
"Hilarious and sweet"
Tara knows how to create a fun filled story with a dash of sauciness! Brilliant!
