I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this 140 page book, but I spent a good majority of the time laughing and highlighting some of the best one-liners I've come across in a long time.
Tara Sivec created a cast of characters that reminded me a little of the old Stephanie Plum. The story follows Kennedy O'Brien as she attempts to apprehend a bail jumper. Hijinks ensue, along with some pretty steamy scenes with the hot, Harley-riding Griffin Crawford.
The story was funny, engaging and had me laughing out loud at the situations the characters found themselves in and what came out of their mouths. This was definitely one of those books that can put a smile on your face and make the time you spent reading it brighter.
War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.
When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.
As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.
