Review

"This book was an exciting read. It hooked me from the beginning, and I could not put it down until I'd finished it. Olivia and Josh are well-rounded characters who experience an instant attraction and a deeper connection that develops over time. The sexual tension is palpable, and the sex scenes are minimal so as not to detract from the story. There is much more to the story than just the romance between Olivia and Josh, however."

"I enjoyed this book. It was a free book and now I'm going to buy the rest of Ingram's books because the solid character development and her writing style are just what I love in a book. I enjoy a book that I can't put down and when I do put it down I find myself thinking about the characters! I love that! Can't wait to read more by Ingram!"

"I really enjoyed this book, I was totally taken in by it and even missed conversaton around me because I was so engrossed in it. I loved Josh and Olivia, they were great together. A little adventure, a lot of romance. My kind of book!"

From the Author

This book was a natural extension of my previous book "Deception" which featured Justine. Now the focus switches to Olivia, and her adventures with Josh, a man on a mission...literally! It was exciting to write and I'm delighted to know that readers feel it's an exciting read as well.  Enjoy!

This story had the makings of a really good story. However, if there is one thing I cannot stand it is a heroine that is minus a brain. He is a spec. ops guy, retired and running his ranch in Montana. One hunky cowboy. She is a journalist in London, writes really heavy duty articles on the war, etc. So, you would think here is a chick with a brain.

She agrees to pose as his fiancée to help him gain entry to the casinos where there are high stakes poker games. His mission has several people involved, the government backs them and they are going to bring down a big time arms dealer. Lots of danger, etc.

Our heroine tells anyone that will listen that the engagement is a fake. Naturally it gets back to the arms dealer. I never made it to the sex scenes. I gave up. I couldn't believe she would be so stupid as to blow his cover, endanger his life and that of the other operators plus blow the chance to get the arms dealer. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I didn't like it. I'm sure other will but not my cup of tea.

Olivia is a successful journalist, but she's missing a personal life. Forget about her non-existent love life. While attending her best friend's engagement party, she meets a charming American special ops soldier named Josh who has an unusual proposition. He wants her to pretend to be his fiancee and accompany him on a Mediterranean vacation. Her ties to the overseas casinos (on which she has previously reported) will help him gain access to the high-stakes poker rooms. After a little persuasion, Olivia agrees. (Her life is desperately missing action and adventure, and this "vacation" has the potential to make a good story.)

Josh takes Olivia to a charming seaside villa, a luxurious yacht, and in the midst of a dangerous illegal weapons operation. As romantic feelings bloom between the two, Olivia uncovers deep secrets regarding Josh's true motives. Olivia wonders who is the "real" Josh: the high-rolling gambler, the all-American cowboy, or the ruthless military agent?

This book was an exciting read. It hooked me from the beginning, and I could not put it down until I'd finished it. Olivia and Josh are well-rounded characters who experience an instant attraction and a deeper connection that develops over time. The sexual tension is palpable, and the sex scenes are minimal so as not to detract from the story. There is much more to the story than just the romance between Olivia and Josh, however. The connection between Olivia and a school friend comes full-circle in a delightful way, as do her connections with other characters (particularly a charming little girl). I only wish there was an epilogue. The ending is a bit uncertain; I'd like to know what Olivia's career plans are. Overall, it's a delightful read that does not follow the over-done conventions of a typical romance novel.

I found FOOL ME ONCE to be a terrific book except for one big flaw -- Josh used his real name and real residence while he was working for a secret organization which no genuine agent would do! As it stood, the one name that was known to the dealers who could be suspected of being undercover was Josh Morgan and that would mean that he and everyone he was connected with would be marked for death after the mission was over.

However, aside from that one point, I would have definitely rated this story five stars because the writing and editing were excellent, the dialogues were authentic and fun to read, and the imagery was vivid and realistic. All the characters' personalities were well-defined, complex and likable (except for the arms dealers, of course). I found it very easy to immerse myself in the story.

Overall, this book was a light, quick read and I enjoyed reading it very much, even with that flaw. For those people who are bothered by course language, I can assure them that this book doesn't contain any. If you are looking for a really nice contemporary romance, then I recommend that you give this book a try. Happy reading!

Okay I love Mona Ingram and the two books I have read from her, I read Deception first and it was off of reviews and the description, I fell in love with the characters and definitely wanted more! At first I was sketchy of getting a sequel that wasn't about the main characters of the first book, but they are involved enough in this one that you are not missing them and you fall in love with Olivia and Josh! Coming from 2 different worlds, when they collide, its combustion! I loved the way that their relationship developed and how the action packed and suspense mixed in with romance. Josh exposes Olivia to something new and when he finally opens up and becomes the man that SHE wants and needs.. It gets screwed up! Ahhh! But I am happy with how it ended and that letting go of pride let them love and feel again! Great great read.. I loved it!

Great read! Story was exciting, had plenty of adventure, romance and caring feelings for our fellow man. On same par as book 1 of the series.

A sexy and fun read that is even better than book one of the series. While this is the second book in the series, you could enjoy it as a stand alone book. If you love cowboys, you're going to love Fool Me Once. Throw in a high-stakes mission and you've got a romance novel that will keep you up long past bedtime.
