Fool Me Twice by Carrie Aarons is an all-new Adult Standalone Romance out now!
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
“When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.
The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local
hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.
So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:
1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb
Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the
raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she
was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.
But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the
newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.
So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme
is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.
Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.”
If you enjoy college romances with heartbreak, emotions, and all-out banter, try this standalone that is equal parts entertaining and romantic.
The synopsis immediately drew me in with the idea of a vengeance story AND friendship after death. It’s one of those plots that really drives me in even though I have an idea of how it’ll all play out.
I wasn’t a huge fan of his character at first and took me most of the book to rally for him. He’s that cocky football jock that instantly gets on your nerves and you wonder how she would ever see anything of value in him. But towards the end redemption shows and their chemistry wins out.
Overall, this was a quick-paced romance that I enjoyed (read in one sitting). Nothing too dramatic, but I really liked the underlying friendship that continued from start to finish. A solid 3 out of 5 stars.

How I Read It: eARC from Candi Kane
*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Candi Kane in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
“Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes
books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she
prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.
When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship
with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.”
