Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…
Drew is the last person Skylar wanted to see across from her at a local bar. A month ago he'd wined and dined her all weekend, leaving her feeling fully in love, but then she awoke alone in an empty hotel room and she hadn't heard from him since.
The weekend Drew spent with Skylar was phenomenal. There had never been anyone who made him feel as complete as she did. He shouldn't have disappeared, he should have called, but his feelings for her scared him, so he distanced himself. But when he saw her again, he knew he couldn't stay away any longer.
Skylar's determined not to give Drew another chance to hurt her, but he's just as determined to win her back. Although it won't be easy, he's up to the challenge, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal.

Fool me once, shame on me... you know how it ends. No one ever wants to have the same horrible experience happen more than once. And for Skylar that horrible experience involves the one man she caught a glimpse of forever in.
Drew and Skylar run into each one month after the weekend that changed both their lives. For Skylar the change was welcome and gave her hope in her own HEA. For Drew the change scared the crap out of him, and he ran. Only now does he see what he had and wants it back, typical male.
Fool Me Once has a nice plot line, two people scared to put themselves totally out there. It was nice to see the guy putting two and two together and deciding the girl is worth the risk of uncertainty.
It is a novella but the characters could have had a little more something to help connect with the readers. It seemed like such a sudden turn around for both Drew and Skylar. Him deciding that he was done with his bachelor life and her with getting over being left at the hotel. Maybe if we were given some more insight to their feelings or what was going on in their heads it would have helped with the connection. This is a nice quick read with some steamy sex but it didn’t end with wishing it were longer.
