    Book #1

Cynical divorce attorney Lori Cumberland lives by one motto: Love is grand, but divorce is a hundred grand. With one failed marriage under her own personal belt, Lori had fallen hard and early—and it isn’t something she plans on repeating. She’s content focusing on the temporary marriages of her rich and famous clients. When she joins some of her recent divorcées on a celebratory cruise, her only vow is fun, sun, and new friends. But Lori finds herself tempted by a jury of one.

For Reed Barlow, falling into the world of private investigation was easy. He knows the law and knows how to avoid breaking it—all while doing his job. His rule to live by? No emotion, no involvement…until Lori. His charming smile and cocky attitude distracts Lori and lowers her guard, which is exactly what Reed desires.

But what appears as a one-time-only flirtation may be a plot orchestrated by Reed. As he’s taking his investigation to a dangerous level, it’s Lori who could end up in jeopardy. Reed has only one shot for Lori to grant him a second chance. But if he comes clean with her, he blows his cover. And that just might cost him the opportunity for an alliance of family…and of love.

My Thoughts…

I love when an author starts a new series and you find old friends within the pages.     Fool Me Once revolves around Alliance, a service that sets up arranged temporary marriages.    Alliance has been found in past series written by Catherine Bybee.    This series starts with three temporary wives that are trying to come to terms with their divorces and find their own happiness.   

This book is Lori’s story.   Lori is the lawyer who writes the pre-nups for   the temporary marriages.   While on a cruise where Lori is playing mother to her group of divorcees she meets Reed.    The relationship continues after the cruise and some secrets come out that could put their relationship into trouble.   

I love the setting, the characters, and the story.  Once I started I could not put it down.     When I did put it down I continued to look for a few minutes here and there to pick it up and read a few more pages.     There is romance, secrets, sex, and fun everything I love in a book.  

I recommend picking up your own copy and enjoying meeting Lori and the girls in the first book of the First Wives Series.
