War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.
When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.
As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.
You know Bobby, Ted, Ward and Beaver. Meadow, and Paige, Lorelai, and Livia but do you know the baddest bitch of all, Kennedy!
Ok, that was my attempt at a jingle sort of like Rudolph. Didn't work too well. ;)
Anyway I was given an advanced copy of Shame on You by Tara Sivec and can I just say I was laughing my butt off while oogling Griffin. Then again when hasn't a Tara Sivec book had a sexy man and some funny laughs. Shame On You is centered around the scorned by male ladies of Fool Me Once Investigations. They are cynical, hysterical, and freaking crazy.
Shame On You follows hardcore Army vet Kennedy. She has been burned and she doesn't trust man especially her ex best friend Griffin. Griffin was always there for her, until he wasn't and he lied to her when she needed him most. When thrown together, Kennedy and Griffin will have to get over their differences and learn to work together. They care so much about each other it's so palpable on the pages of this book. And holy hot damn, their sexual chemistry is explosive.
I adore Tara Sivec's writing. This story was no different. I can't wait for more from Lorelai and Paige and I am praying for a little more than a glimpse of Griffin. My only complaint for this book is 130 something pages just wasn't long enough. I wanted more. I read this in one sitting and I kept thinking, that's it? I just desperately loved these characters and I just really wanted more. The story was too funny not to want more.
I love your writing you fabulous author and I am dying for more of your work... so what's next.
4.5 STARS FOR SHAME ON YOU.
