Shame on You: Fool Me Once, Book 1 | [Tara Sivec]

Shame on You: Fool Me Once, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "This is no Stephanie Plumb!"

    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.

    Story
    "Laugh out loud funny."

    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.

    Story
    "What a book!!! Tara has some great humor...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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!


    Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favorite?

    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!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    OMG! It made me laugh out loud....too funny!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Liked it; despite myself"

    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.

    HOLY FREAKING FUNNY!!! OK, SO I PRE-ORDERED THIS AUDIOBOOK BECAUSE AFTER LISTENING TO SEDUCTIONS AN SNACKS I NEW THIS HAD TO BE JUST AS FUNNY. EXCEPT- THIS ONE WAS WAYYYYY FUNNY! AMY MCFADDEN WAS THE BEST NARRATOR FOR THIS BOOK- SHE PICKED UP EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN THIS BOOK- BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS.

    KENNEDY O'BRIEN IS A EX WAR VETERAN, HER BEST FRIENDS AND HER STARTED THERE OWN COMPANY- FOOL ME ONCE INVESTIGATIONS AFTER FINDING HER "HUSBAND" MESSING AROUND ON HER - YA KNOW WITH CHLOE WITH AN E! WELL NOW WORKING WITH HER FATHER AT HIS BAIL BONDSMAN COMPANY- PART TIME SHES ASSIGNED TO A CASE - MCFADDEN- SIMPLE GUY SHE NEEDED TO BRING IN. HER DAD NEEDED SOME HELP- SO HE THOUGHT- AND THATS WHEN SHE FINDS OUT HE HIRED GD- GRIFFIN CRAWFORD- HER EX-HUSBANDS BEST FRIEND- HER EX-FRIEND..

    *WIPES SWEAT FROM BROW* GRIFFIN.. WOW I WISH THAT I COULD HAVE ONE OF THOSE IN MY LIFE!- HE'S ALL SORTS OF SEXY- AND IT ALL STARTED BY HIM PULLING UP IN ON A MOTORCYCLE. REALLY... COULDN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.

    A BET WAS PLACED- WHO COULD GET MCFADDEN FIRST. WOULD IT BE GRIFFIN OR KENNEDY? WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LOOSE? WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU WIN?.. MOST OF THIS STORY MADE ME OPEN MOUTH LAUGH- AND ESPECIALLY WITH A NARRATOR LIKE AMY MCFADDEN- MADE THIS AUDIOBOOK 10x MORE FUNNIER!

    SO BASICALLY TO SUM UP THIS SUPER FUNNY BOOK- DID I ENJOY IT? YES- BY FAR ONE MY FAVS ON AUDIOBOOK,-WAS THIS AUDIO LONG? NOPE ONLY LITTLE OVER 3 HOURS- WAS THERE A PLOT? YES- FROM START TO FINISH WITH A KISS ASS DOG INVOLVED- EVEN A HUNGRY FATHER THAT ENJOYED BEING A SILVER FOX- GOTTA LISTEN!!!...

    THE COMEDY WASN'T FORCED- IT CAME WITH THE BOOK- IT WASN'T OVERLY DONE- IT WAS DONE PERFECT- A PERFECT AFTERNOON LISTEN OR WHILE YOUR WORKING -BUT BE CAREFUL- PUT SOME HEAD PHONES ON- THE SWEARING IS UNLIMITED- BUT DAMN IT WAS FUNNY!!
