Book Review! Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Fool Me Once (First Wives #1) by Catherine Bybee
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: September 19, 2017
Publisher: Montlake Romance

From Weekday Brides to First Wives, a dazzling series about four women and their alliance of newfound friendship, unexpected love, and second chances.

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 divorcĂ©es 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.

Fool Me Once is the first book in a spin off of the Weekday Brides series by Catherine Bybee called First Wives. I enjoyed getting to know  Lori, Reed, and some of the other characters. Avery is a hoot! Lori is a lawyer who is part of an organization that arranges temporary marriages that benefit both parties. I thought this was a pretty unique idea, and the things that happen as a result of these arrangements definitely kept the reading interesting throughout the story. Fool Me Once is a little bit of mystery mixed with a little goofy-ness and tossed into some smoldery romance. This book makes me want to go back and read the Weekday Brides series too. 

Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.
