Synopsis:

Married to the enemy

When Keira O’Malley was a child, she used to picture her perfect wedding. The flowers. The dress. Her husband. But nothing could have prepared her for saying “I do” to Dmitri Romanov-cold, domineering, and always one step ahead of everyone else in the ever-shifting power plays of New York City. She agreed to his bargain to secure peace for her family, and she may want the bastard more than she’d ever admit, but she’ll be damned if she’ll make this marriage easy for him.

Dmitri knows better than to underestimate Keira for one second. Molten desire smolders between them, a dangerous addiction neither can resist. But his enemies are already on the move, and he needs every ounce of his legendary focus and control to keep them alive. Keira could just be his secret weapon-if she doesn’t bring him to his knees first.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY & Review!! 💙💚 Fool Me Twice by Lillian Anderson

Title: Fool Me Twice
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary
Release Date: February 21, 2018
‘Some husbands bought their wives flowers, others bought jewellery. Mine? He returned the things he stole.’

I should have known better. Hot guys didn’t hit on big girls without an agenda. They didn’t approach them in bars and talk their way into your bed. They also didn’t make you feel beautiful and proud of your curves. But, I was going through a dry spell—actually, I’d kind of been going through a dry spell all my life—and dry spells sucked. Of course I slept with him.

I was such a fool. 

I believed his lines. Fell for his easy smile; the man swept me off my feet, rocked my world, then robbed me blind. 

I really needed a three date rule.

Angry and embarrassed, I engaged the help of my best friend to track the thief down and make him return what he took. But when I found him, he wasn’t alone….

What does a girl do when she finds not one thief, but an entire family? 

She marries into it, of course.
I have mixed feelings about Fool Me TwiceOn the one hand it was a fun and funny romance featuring a curvy girl and a sexy guy with an accent, two things guaranteed to get me all hot & bothered…and interested. But on the other hand, this story wasn’t everything I hoped it would be, which is why I only gave it 3.75 stars.
The story itself was good with a really intriguing premise and the chemistry between Holland and Nate (not Ben) was really hot. But the story loses something with only being told from her point of view. That fact alone made it hard to connect with Nate, to give a damn about why he and his family did what they did, which is key, in my opinion, to forgiving him for the way he treated her. Twice.
Fool Me Twice was a good read, but I never fully connected.
