About Shame On Him:
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.
Oh my God. Tara Sivec, I love you so much. I don’t even care how embarrassing of a human I am when I’m reading one of your books in public. If people don’t want to hear me snort, they can leave the dentist’s office.
I almost want to deduct a star because this is the last book in the series and I don’t want to say goodbye. Maybe there can be a crossover series between Fool Me Once and Chocolate Lovers.
Omg. That would be amazing. Now I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about how awesome that would be. Tara, if you’re reading this, can I have that for Chanukkah?
I almost did deduct a star because I feel like in each book in the series, the crime has been solved in a very similarly disastrous way. But it’s funny enough that I just don’t care. 🙂
But this book definitely hit me in the feels more than the first two books. I loved seeing Lorelei break out of her shell and become the woman she was meant to be. Her friends are trying to get her to do it, but of course, this is a problem that can only be solved by a hot and frustrating man.
They are the perfect example of opposites attract. 🙂 Well, maybe not, because Lorelei definitely has more “defiant badass” in her than she thought. (Insert “Dallas is a badass and Lorelei has a little badass in her joke [here]). Kennedy would be proud.
