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.
Content Warning: Explicit Sex
Skylar met the perfect man. And he left her without a word after a perfect weekend. Hurt and heartbroken, she is determined to not let one man ruin her outlook on love and dating. When she sees Drew with another woman a month after his disappearing act, she lets anger replace the hurt. No way will she let herself be drawn back to the man whose charm is addictive.
Drew realized that he had screwed up. Big time. Seeing Skylar turn her back on him and walk away was crushing. One weekend with her had left him dazed and confused. Too confused to even call her and explain why he’d left her. But seeing her again just solidified the knowledge that he had to have her in his life. Permanently.
A short story about two people fated to be together, Fool Me Once is a sweet romance with some hot sex. Ms. Wolfe's characters were realistic, likable and endearing, the plot was one almost everyone can relate to, and the ending was heartwarming. A very enjoyable read.
