Synopsis from Goodreads

They say opposites attract, but this is just ridiculous.

Aubry Kaiser doesn’t like people—actually, that’s not right. She loathes people. With her crippling anxiety, there’s no way she can demo her favorite video game at a convention with five thousand other people. Maybe if she brings someone to act as a shield…

But the only person available is the sexy cowboy she can’t stand.

Quinn Baldwyn is in a mess of his own. He’s been dodging his wealthy family’s matchmaking attempts—and life advice—for years, but with his sister’s wedding on the horizon, he needs of a shield of his own.

He and Aubry can barely hold down a civil conversation, but in bed…fireworks. And the closer they get to Quinn’s sister’s wedding, the more he realizes that he might actually like Aubry.

Now it’s up to him to convince her she might actually like him, too.

REVIEW 

They say opposites attract, but this is just ridiculous.

The tagline for Fool Me Once could not get any more accurate or an understatement for the differences between Aubry and Quinn. From their backgrounds to their interactions every single thing is in opposition, yet there is no denying the sparks that flare between them. 

Aubry is very wary of people in general due to her poor upbringing and less than nurturing mother. She turned to gaming as a way of escaping her reality as a teen, it helped her have a focus and provided a career path for her. Leading her to become one of the top gamers in the world with an exclusive invitation to alpha test the newest version of the game that practically saved her life as a teen. Unfortunately, Aubry is crippled by social anxiety and with the alpha testing being held at a huge expo, her issues are holding her back from accomplishing one of her dreams.

Quinn, on the other hand, was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Although Quinn has shunned all of the trappings of his wealthy family to become a rancher, he is unable to fully cut ties with his family’s demands because of his relationship with his sister. Having to attend his sisters’ wedding while avoiding his fathers’ match-making attempts is proving a problem for Quinn. With a little push from Adam and Jules ♥ Quinn and Aubry make a deal to be a buffer for each other at their respective events.

Pretending to be in a relationship, the acting masks some serious attraction between the two. Aubry is understandably reluctant to act on the physical attraction she feels for Quinn due to his player reputation. Quinn is obviously physically attracted to Aubrey but continually fights against it ? Unexpectedly, they have one thing in common guaranteed to push them over the edge; their libidos are in overdrive, LOL.

As the story progresses it is easy to see Aubry and Quinn are the perfect balance for each other; their chemistry and banter eclipse all the negativity between them until it grows into something neither could have predicted.  The progression is heart warming to follow especially Aubry’s character development.

There are continued references to an accident that affected the male characters in the series when they were at a young age, the repercussions still taking it’s toll to the present day. The full impact of the details ant the accident are set to be divulged in the third book in the series – A Fool for You
