Publisher's Summary

For Lorelei Warner, being perfect isn't everything it's cracked up to be. She did what her straitlaced parents wanted: Became a lawyer, married her college boyfriend. But since her husband ran off with another man and her career became a nonstop bore-fest, Lorelei has turned to her best friends and Fool Me Once Investigations to find fulfillment and adventure.

When a routine subpoena delivery turns up a dead body, Lorelei knows that solving the murder is exactly what she needs to boost her confidence - until private investigator Dallas Osborne walks in and takes over the case. Dallas has always rubbed Lorelei the wrong way. It's aggravating enough that he's a pompous ass, but he's also entirely too good-looking.

If she wants to catch the killer, Lorelei will need to loosen up and defy her parents - not to mention the law. And she'll need to partner with Dallas, working closer (much closer) to the sexy investigator than she ever expected.

Join the feisty Fool Me Once ladies for another fun-loving romp from bestselling author Tara Sivec.

fun series, but...

All three stories the leads make some potentially deadly mistake, only to be rescued. I would have liked them to be each a little stronger and smarter. I don't think that would have taken away from the lusty parts at all.

Dee

Narration is off on male voices. All the males sound similar. It makes it difficult to take some of the story line seriously.

Gives new meaning to "bodice ripper"I

Superficial and trite. Are there really girls like this? who talk like this? Who like stories like this? Moronic plot and lots of heavy breathing.

Awful read. Don't waste your time..

Cozy crime rom-com

Partnering with the enemy to solve a murder case. Lorelei is part owner of Fool Me Once with her friends. She’s also a lawyer, but her passion is solving crime. The idea of taking on a murder case and actually solving it thrills and scares her all at the same time. Lorelei enjoys her independence, but she’s tired of doing what her parents want. She’s tired of being the woman who does as she is told and being underestimated. She doesn’t need a man in her life. She’s happy without a man. Dallas Osborne owns Osborne Investigations. Every once in a while he partners with Fool Me Once. Dallas is in charge of bringing Richard’s killer to justice. Lorelei was at the first to arrive at the murder scene, so Richard is going to need her help. The problem is they are enemies. Narrator: This is an unabridged audiobook narrated by Amy McFadden. Amy specializes in mysteries, thrillers, and urban fantasy. This cozy crime rom-com romance may not be what she specializes in but she performs with professional talent. Her warm conversational tone, comedic timing, and ability to play many different characters makes her a versatile voice actress. Length: 4hours and 17 minutes. I listened at 2X the speed. Overall: This book includes an epilogue. Trope: enemy to lovers, detective, rom-com, cozy crime romance It was an easy read. There were a few mild sex scenes.

3.5 🌟

Loved the Lorelai Dallas story. Definite enemies to lovers with all sorts of hate lust with some crime drama in between. Lorelai and her parents gave me a total Gilmore girls vibe with Dallas being "Jesse". My favorite of the 3 is still Paige's storyline but overall, solid ending to this trilogy.

Still Short But Better Than Book 2

These two clash and bicker while investigating a murder, which keeps things interesting. There's also a really grouchy cat, that reminds me of a lot of real cats and cracks me up. It's also why I prefer dogs.

Sending wrong messages to women

All three books in the series start out with the man being controlling, angry, moody or depressed, disparaging of the woman, and with no control over his libido. The women are attracted to abusive men, and can’t control their libido either. I like a good sex scene as much as anyone, but when Lorelie said, “I’m on the pill. Fuck the condom.“ I was apalled at the message that sent. She had just divorced a man who was gay, and having a gay affair while they were married. I don’t think you should be sending the message that safe sex isn’t important in her situation. These books buy in to the fiction that a woman can meet a controlling, abusive man and change him into a loving teddy bear with great sex.

Narration is awesome!

For the most part I didn't love this book as much as I did the first and third book, but I do have to say that I still gave a 5 for this audio book because I thought the narration was wonderful!

Cute, funny, too short - interesting characters

Lots of close friends and family interaction. Enjoyable, if somewhat predictable, story line of Lorelei and Dallas going from hating each other to a passionate relationship. I loved the way Dallas stood up for her and supported her through all the problems with her parents.

My only complaint is that the book is quite short, I wish it was longer.

Excellently performed by Amy McFadden.

Too much swearing for my taste!

Like the previous two Fool Me Once novels, this is both light and entertaining. No depth of characters and a very light storyline. The focus is on the death of a Millionaire and given the simplicity of the solution to the crime, the rest of the novel is quite pointless!

The main let down of all of these novels for me is, the overuse of profanity! Because I do not swear myself, it jars and doesn't seem to add to the story! Not in the previous books and neither in this one, despite Lorilei's inability to swear seems to be the true focus of the book.

These books form part of the Kindle Unlimited package and as such, although I would not use a valuable credit to purchase them, did not feel like a bad investment!
