Don’t Miss Catherine Bybee’s Newest Book Release, Fool Me Once, Coming 9/19/17!

 

Fool Me Once is a fun and unique fictional read. Catherine Bybee is a talented writer and great storyteller. I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written, suspenseful and captivating novel.

Attorney Lori Cumberland wasn’t the average run-of-the-mill divorce lawyer. She represented only the rich and the famous. Wealthy men and women who desired a short-term marriage, with an uncomplicated divorce, sought out Lori Cumberland. The reasons why people wanted a fake marriage varied considerably. Some temporarily wanted arm candy, others, needed a sophisticated image, to further their career, and some, sought to soothe, a family member’s worries before they died. Whatever the reasons, all clients were required to sign an Alliance agreement. This contract included among other things, a prenuptial agreement and a marriage expiration date. Although Attorney Lori Cumberland appeared to have a posh job, it was not without risks. Some wealthy people, are powerful, and become dangerously lethal when crossed; something that Lori, unfortunately, would experience, firsthand. Although the Alliance was heavily guarded, with security, bodyguards, private jets, and safe houses, unexpected occurrences can and do happen.

Private Investigator Reed Barlow was hired to dig dirt up on Shannon, a Senator’s ex-wife. Reed didn’t know before becoming romantically involved, with attorney Lori Cumberland, that Shannon had once signed an Alliance contract. The information he discovered unethically, would not only smear Shannon but Lori as well. Reed didn’t want to confess to Lori his initial reason for following and flirting with her but did so, anyway. And, as expected, his betrayal cut Lori, deeply. Reed wanted Lori in his life and was willing to go to any lengths to win her back, even if that meant putting himself in danger.

Fool Me Once is a suspenseful, romantic, fictional story; which is highly entertaining and enjoyable. Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley for my advanced review copy.

*Not Quite Perfect*by Catherine Bybee*5-Stars

 

not-quite-perfect

Not Quite Perfect is a delightful and highly entertaining romantic tale. I found the book to be well-written and humorous. The storyline captured my attention right away, and the lives of the characters kept me engrossed until the end.

Mary Kildare is an independent, self-sufficient woman. She had been abandoned as a child, so Mary made it her business to not become too dependent on anyone. She guarded her heart well. Mary loved her career as a mental health counselor; she was aware, though, that the job, was not without its risks. If a client’s life didn’t improve or change as fast as they thought it should, she knew that she could easily become their scapegoat for blame. But, Mary never expected to become of victim of a violent crime.

Although Mary was excited to date, Glen Fairchild, a very wealthy and talented pilot, she was also wary. Glen Fairchild was a notorious player. And, Mary knew that the very last thing her fragile heart needed was to fall in love with a man who was sure to break it.

The wealthy playboy was intrigued with Mary. And since he had access to a private plane, the fact that she lived thousands of miles from him was of no consequence; until her life was in danger and he couldn’t reach her in time.

Not Quite Perfect is a well-written, easy to read and perfectly paced romantic story. I loved the book and highly recommend it.

I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
