Publisher's Summary

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.

    "This is escapism."

    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.

    "Shame on Me audio edition"

    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.

    "Funny..."

    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.

    "Light, Fun, Listen"

    This series is great for a quick entertaining escape. A little on the whimsical side but still enjoyable. If you listened to the first book you know what to expect.

    "Fool me 2"

    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.

    "Love this series!"

    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!

    "Funny, funny, funny.."
    Any additional comments?

    Some really funny stuff came out of the authors mind when she wrote these books. I've already read Shame on You and this one today and when I finish this review I'm going to read Shame on Him.

    Paige had some really funny lines and thoughts. Matt was absolutely wonderful. Nice to see Kennedy and Lorelei again. Andy was an idiot and was a perfect match for Melanie.
    Love, love, loved Paige's mother, Matt's Dad, Eunice and Fran. They were some crazy old ladies and a gent.

    The F-BOMB was used quite a bit and there was SEX. So if you're not looking for that kind of book, move on.

    I got all three of these books and the audible version free with my KindleUnlimited. What a deal for a lot of great laughs.

    As for the narrator: She made the book. She was absolutely hysterical. Without her reading I don't think it would have been nearly as funny. Wonderful job..

    "Not so cute this time"

    After listening to Shame On You and finding it a light, fluffy humorous tongue in cheek take on the private detective genre i purchased the next two works in the series. This work of fluffy female fiction started out in the same vein but then veered off way past parody and into caricature. Caricature is certainly an excellent definition of both Paige's mother and Matt's father; too broadly defined for even a network sitcom or a Hallmark Channel movie. As was Paige's ex Andy; a whiny narcissistic excuse for a man completely lacking in testosterone.
    The action scenes were once more, caricatures that played way too broadly. A mafia hit man being assaulted by a couple of old ladies with pocketbooks and canes; well sure. Not to mention Paige's mother becoming a gun happy vigilante. Then Paige is elbowed twice in the ribs and kicked in the stomach by the above mentioned hit man and thirty seconds later she is being given a "crushing" hug by Matt; not even a squeak of pain emerges from her.
    There is a limit to how much belief can be suspended in the written or audio format. Those are types of scenes that can be only be conveyed effectively in a visual medium. Perhaps it was too short a time between the time I listened to the first and second book. Maybe this one aims too often for the easy laugh the scene which requires little imagination to write. For whatever reason this one fell far short of the first book in the series.
