After war veteran Kennedy O’Brien returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, she lost her faith in all things male. So she started Fool Me Once Investigations to stick it to the man — because there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.
Her latest job is a wild dog-chase to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned Chihuahua thief, but thanks to her meddling family, Kennedy will have to put up with a partner. And it’s about the last man she’d ever pick: Her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford. As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin is a pesky (if scorching hot) reminder that Kennedy will need help to catch her man — and to open up her heart again.

If you like plenty of Raunchy sex, stupid repetitive jokes and constant bad language in normal conversation this is for you. It is NOT for me. The reader is annoying so that did not help. Skip this one. I couldn't finish it.
I love everything Tara does, but ended up reading the rest of this book cause the narrator annoyed me so much.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book was funny in a way that movies like The Hangover or Bridesmaids is funny. So if you like that kind of humor get this short story. I was laughing my ass off while listening to it at work and my day flew by. There was one particular part with a bachelorette party comes into mind that had me in stitches. I love the father in this story I hope there is more of him in the next books. Okay I admit the story is a rip off of Stephanie Plum story, but don't be fooled the humor and language is defiantly cruder. The narrator does an excellent job at bring out the craziness of the characters. I will be listening to the rest of the books eventually.
The narrator makes this book come to life. I caught myself laughing out loud. She nailed it...each character took on its own life....great story line. Tara has some serious writing talent. The comedy wasnt over done and the story line just flowed. Im hooked on her work...can't wait to read more of her stuff!
Kennedy of course was my favorite. She is a kick ass, no nonsense girl. Her dreams of Griffin and her desires are so funny. And the mouth on her...love her! And her descriptions are so funny...RAT BASTARD is my new word!
OMG! It made me laugh out loud....too funny!
I can't wait to listen to the other two in the series. I really loved this book!!!
Audible has been a lifesaver as I continue to go through the process of physical recovery.
This is one of the selections I acquiesced to during June's end of the month sale. I didn't expect to enjoy the listening experience; as the headline would suggest I was pleasantly surprised by this mystery/ romance. It is in fact a romance with a slightly more than casual nod to mystery.
Kennedy O'Brien returns from Afghanistan to find her husband in bed with a woman closer to her daughter's age than her own. She starts a detective agency with her two best friends Lorelei and Paige attempting to save women from the experiences they'd had with the men in their lives. She also works occasionally as a bounty hunter going after fugitives who've skipped out on their bond provided by her father's bail bonds business. She's runs into her husband's best friend Griffin Crawford at a fugitive's front door he's just taken a job as a bounty hunter with the same company.
Sparks fly as the attraction between them is strong as is the antipathy; because what the hell it's a romance and couples always begin that way in a romance novel. The interplay between them is sharp and humorous and the language used Kennedy and her family is highly reminiscent of an army barracks.
While it's true that most of the book's characters have at most two dimensions this is a nice little story that I'm glad I was talked into purchasing. Warning; there will not be very many surprises in this book; it's a pretty typical romance novel, but an enjoyable one.
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
