Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
Shame on me was a cute and funny read. I love that Matt was a sexy nerd and that Paige was a smart model not just an airhead. I thought Matt and Paige made a cute couple. I loved both Paige's mom and Matt's dad. This quick little read made me laugh a lot. I did think the end and all the stuff with the bad guy was wrapped up too easy. Overall this was a fun, silly, and entertaining read!

When I first read Tara Sivec’s Shame on You, I thought it was short, sweet and funny. But to be honest, I wasn’t in a hurry to read the second book when it came out. Now I’m kicking myself because I really liked this one. Even more than the first, and I wish I would have read it sooner!

Shame on Me is the second installment of Tara Sivec’s Fool Me Once series. This series follows three friends who have been wronged by the men in their life and they decide to help other women by opening

Fun, quick listen on audiobook. This had the silly humor I enjoy and had me laughing out loud in quite a few places. Great side characters that added to the fun. Narrator did a really good job. She has a great voice and was easy to listen too.

I enjoyed this book much better than the first book of this series...


Perfect book to read after a heavy story. Tara Sivec turns down the over the top scenes a notch and delivered an easy, light, well paced, enjoyable story for model Paige McCarty.

In an attempt to clear our my TBR (and for my 2018 reading challenge) I wanted to read a fun and lighthearted book that would make me laugh. Well, Tara Sivec did just that! I loved reading Shame on Me. I may even have liked it more than the previous book in the series because it make me LOL so many times. Tara has this trademark humor that gets me every time so I always LOVE reading her books.

She is too materialistic for me, but I like her. And the fact that she is super model and not a lot people know makes the whole book a little bit more fake, but whatever, the relationship between her and Matt was kind of cute, so I'll give her that. And the fact that old ladies came up and save the day??!!! That did it.
This author is better in small doses.

Tara Sivec is one of those writers who can write anything. I think it's because of her personality, her personality comes out in her writing and if you've ever met her you know what I'm talking about.

I am blown away by each new book she writes, each one gets better and better for me. I loved everything about this book, the characters were fun and witty, and Matt was swoon-worthy. I can't wait to read the next one in this series, because I have a feeling it will be another gr
Matt is sweet

This was a really good read, but I don't think I liked it as much as the first book. In this book the hero is Matt and although very sexy he is somewhat of a nerd and has a sweet character. I do love the secondary characters of Paige's mom and Matt's dad. They were hilarious!

The one thing I wish was clarified was what Matt's company name and what it does. There was no mention of that in the book. It would've been nice if that was mentioned.

I am never disappointed when it comes to Tara Sivec. She makes me laugh until it hurts. She has me grabbing my stomach because the cramps from my laughter are to much to handle.

I loved this story. I loved the characters and the writing.

The best part of this series is the parents. She writes amazing side characters. They bring the story full circle.

Tara Sivec's book are entertaining as usual

But I can't help but notice the similarity of the Fool me once series with her recent series The Naughty Princess Club. Both of these series is about 3 women who are fed up of their lives being fucked up by men and they started their own business

Paige is one third of the gals at Fool Me Once. She took her anger over being burned by her lying ex to push herself forward. She’s the pretty face of the team, the one that lures the cheating men they’ve been hired to out, but she wants to be seen as more than just that.

When her target Matt stirs up some feelings she can’t help but want to push this case further. There is something about the story the wife gives that doesn’t add up. Once Paige realizes that Matt is the victim she wants to do w

You can never go wrong with any Tara Sivec books. As expected this book did not disappoint. I stayed up late to finish it and pissed my husband off a couple of times because I woke him up from my laughing. I love that these books are different from the "I am in college, met the man of my dreams who saved me and I am a virgin" book that every other author is creating now. If you want something different, something creative, something funny then this the series you are looking for.

I think I enjoyed this even more than the first book, Shame on You. I love it when books prove that women aren't just a pretty face. We can also kick some serious ass. I can't wait for the third (and I think final?) book in the series. I also can't wait to Skype with Tara today.

Shame on Me is the second novel in the Fool Me Once series and this time it follows Paige McCarthy - A retired model turned private investigator. Her primary job is to catch cheating husbands in the act, so she can stick it to them. Until Matt Russo. He is just her type and as it turns out, not such a scumbag after all.

I enjoyed the back and forth banter between Paige and Matt, Lorelei and Dallas and even between Margaret and Eric. Just like the first in the series, this is a laugh out loud, but

Another short and sweet in this series. I could only think of one part that summed up the feels of this book.

“Mr. Russo narrows his eyes at me. “It’s a good thing I came in here. I see a lot of charlatans in this room who could lead you astray. Like that woman over there with the blue hair and pink skirt.”
I turn around and see that he’s staring right at the photographer for this shoot.
“Actually, that’s a man. His name is Simon Viper, and he’s one of the best photographers in the world,” I tell

4.25 stars. Another funny book from Ms. Sivec. I can't get enough of her books! I have yet to find one that I didn't find absolutely hilarious, and Shame on me was no exception. Even though the books in this series and way too short, I still love the series. I do have to say though, I think I liked Shame on You better. Although this book was very funny, it wasn't as hilarious as the first one. That is why it got a little lower rating. I also wish the main problem of the story wasn't that easily ...more
I liked Shamed on Me way more than the first one it was a little less over the top. Whenever i am in the mood for a light funny read i always go for a Tara Sivec book and she never disappoints. I loved Paige's mum and the 'Golden Girls' they was so funny.

Move over Stephanie Plum, the Fool Me Once Investigations trio is here!

In the second set Ex model Paige is a riot accidentally going up against the mob and finding love in the process.

Fans of Evanovich will appreciate the humor of this short set of three stories.
