My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Buy Link: Amazon
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.
That's really the only thing this series lacked, moreness. If you read some of the lesser star reviews, they all have a very similar voice. It was too short. Too quick. People wanted more. Did I feel the same? Sure. I would have loved more, but regardless this little book petite successfully delivered a full story. It was merely and issue of enjoying the characters, their chemistry so much, I found myself fully invested. So fully invested, it seemed to be over too fast.
I loved the sexual tension between Lorelei and Dallas. Are some of the situations ridiculous? Maybe. Unbelievable? Perhaps, but damn if I wasn't fully entertained. This fun loving series is a great mixture of humor, tension, action and heart. It doesn't take you too deep, allowing your brain to just enjoy. Sometimes that's exactly what we need. To enjoy.
These books are a great cure for a book hangover. A great series for readers who may not have a lot a time. It's what you reach for when you just need to have fun!
I will definitely miss these characters!!
