Review ~ Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

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.

Jewelz Review~
Another great book from Catherine Bybee. I truly love Lori - some might say she's a bit jaded, but she's more of a realist. She truly takes control of her life and doesn't allow herself to be a victim of circumstance. Despite her somewhat tough-girl persona, she truly cares about people and is a good friend.

Reed - what can I say about this guy. I loved him and wanted his relationship with Lori to be perfect. Of course, it wasn't perfect because he hasn't told her everything. She has secrets and he has secrets - and secrets aren't a good thing in a developing relationship.

I love the fast pace and jet-set lifestyles in Bybee's books. I'm able to escape from the routine of my day-to-day life and not worry about reality for the hours I'm engrossed in her stories. She tells a good story and creates characters that truly come to life right off the page. She's definitely one of my go-to authors for a needed book escape!

Honest disclosure~ I received a copy for review
FYI~ open door intimacy, language
