Tracy *To the point Reviews*

Yes, I know. I have many DNF in the past weeks. I guess it comes down to capturing my interest at the get go. I had a hard time catching feels for Carter. And I didn't feel any chemistry between him and the heroine.

Lexi meets Carter in an unusual circumstance. He's charming and charismatic and she's done for almost immediately. Their whirlwind romance takes a dramatic turn, I'd like to say unexpectedly, but I think I kinda saw it coming.

Fast forward a few years... Lexi is now guarded and alone. Well, not really alone Carter did leave her with the ultimate parting gift ;) But the number he did on her heart leaves her hesitant to say the least, so when Nate walks into her store and asks her out, she says no.

There are those Authors that you can read and love. Then there is Brittany. Where every single book of hers makes you yearn to read more. This book is phenomenal and right up there in my Top 5 Books of the year. Brittany is my bitch and totally took this book and made it her bitch! This is a must-read. I love you, Nate.

Wow wow WOW! There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m #TeamNate all the way I know there are loads of #TeamCarter out there too but Nate has won me over from the beginning. Lexi is strong and wears her heart on her sleeve, she has been through so much and yet is still standing tall. This story pulls at your heartstrings without a doubt and there are moments that had me gasping outloud covering my mouth as I continue to read. I was left in ears towards the end of this book and still can’t believe how ...more

Lexie has a terrible day then a waiter at lunch is a total jerk! Come to find out, that waiter at lunch is the host of a joke show. Carter has to find Lexie after she punched him in the nose at the restaurant because he just has to know more.
There are some scenes in here. This is a twisty take about a love one female finding the one person she loves. This is well written. There were a few times I would have liked to reach through these pages to smack Lexie for her choices, but that just shows th

Once again Brittany has not disappointed, as always her witty sense of humor comes shining through in the book.
You get lots of lovable characters, lust, passion, heartbreak, forgiveness, love and WTF do I do moments, and then there's Hazel I love her to pieces.

Lexi is a strong willed independent woman, knows what she wants in life until Carter comes along he changes her future drastically then turns her world upside down.
Carter thinks he knows what he wants, but is it really what his hearts de

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Wow! I thought I loved Brittany Crowley's books about the Cage brothers but nothing compares to the depth and emotions that she shows us in her newest book Fool Me Once. I couldn't help but become permanently intertwined in Lexi, Carter, and Nate's fictional world and feel my emotions be tossed to and fro like the waves of the sea with all the angst and feelings that develop between them. While I am not a big fan of lov

Fool Me Once has taken Brittany Crowley’s writing to a whole new level. Gone is the angsty MMA books and BAM welcome sweet, sexy, romance with lots of drama with some twists and turns.
Don’t get me wrong I love everything Brittany Crowley but this book just had me from the first word all the way to the end and I wasn’t sure my heart was going to survive.

Gotta start off with this quote. Here I thought my fears were pretty bad but damn Lexi, girl how can you be afraid of Jelly Beans? This quote h

I Voluntarily Reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book!!

Brittany! I so love you for writing this story. While in the past you have graced us with your humor, in this book you graced us with the amount of depth of love and patience. It was a little different from what I am used to with you. Yet, I fell in love between every page. While I was disappointed with Carter, I never really hated him. Which means that you created his charachter with a fine tooth comb and allowed the readers to embrac

I'm such a huge fan of Brittany Crowley and I was a bit hesitant because I don't like love triangles but I love the authors writing and I'm so happy that I gave this a chance even though it did tare pieces of my heart out at times . One of the many things that I enjoy about the author is the humor she brings even though at times things would be serious we get that umph of funny . I don't want to give to much away because even though the experience will brake you it may put it back together .

Lexi and Carter meet right off the intro to the book! Its funny, infuritating, silly, what a draw in. He works her to cave on going out on a date with him. She caves and starts to fall in with Carter. They have a sweet relationship that goes on for a few months. Carter and Lexi carry on a long distance relationship and it works but things happen, and they don't work out.

Time passes, and she is back home, successfully running her jewelry line. She doesn't want to fall in deep with anyone, she's b

I was in love with this author's book before but this one has completely stolen my heart. This is so different from her work but it still shows so much of her character and charm and nerdiness. Throughout the book I kept a goofy look on my face and as much as I loved Carter and his pursuit of her I can't help but be all team Nate. Swept up in the thrill of what she shared with Carter she has to stop and figure out if he is what she wants or if she has truly found her heart in Nate. I absolutely ...more

I hate to say this is Brittany Crowley's best book to date because I truly love everything I have read by her, but in this case I have to say it is MY favorite to date. What started out as a comedy of errors became what Lexi thought was her love of a lifetime with Carter, but left her with so many doubts, not about who she is, but about what her future holds. When years go by and she still can't seem to pull the trigger on relationships, Nick steps in to become what she needs, her friend. The st ...more

One word! Amazing! This book has you hooked from page one. This book will have you saying WTF? I was so hooked on Carter and thinking where does one find a man like that. You know, too good to be true? Well boom! Then along comes Nate. And, I’m like, wait where does one meet that kind of man? I love a twist that comes along . This author made this twist a good one. I like that you are trying to figure it out but ?? Bravo, well done. From that point on my stomach was in knots. I never wavered in ...more

Fool Me Once is my first ready by Brittany Crowley and it will not be my last. It captured me from the very beginning and I did not want to put it down.

I love this so much, Brittany has a way of making her characters so warm, loving and caring. The depths of that love coming thru her writing is just incredible. Nate's love for his soon to be family, Carter's betrayal of Lex's love, and finally a satisfying conclusion to the story line. A perfect journey and start of a new living family. Thanks Brittany you did it again.

Trying to recall if I have read anything from Brittany?? can't recall? nope, i just am recalling her name, a newbie author to me.... interesting!!! loved the cover, awesome read, i love the humor and silliness .. .. guess u might call it sarcastic or what not? I look forward to reading more from Brittany and hopefully from similar characters or suchness. can't wait. ( ;

Such a great book. I loved all of the characters. Carter and Nate both have feelings for Lex . Lex has a important choice to make, which man does she give her heart to for safe keeping? It will be a tough choice as both men have great qualities. You may think you have her choice of the guys figured out , but in the end you maybe suprised.

The passion, love and emotion that fool me once makes you feel is just amazing. Brittany never fails to amaze me with her talent and ability to hit me in the feels. The further I got in the book the more connected I felt with the characters.
Fool me once has officially been added to my frequently reread pile!

This book deserves 10 or more stars!! I was hooked from the first page until the last I couldn't put it down until I was finished!! This book was EVERYTHING!! Favorite read this year and everyone needs to read it. The emotional rollercoaster the author took me on with this one was wow just wow. This book left me speechless. Love triangles are my fave books to read but this one was so different and so good. I didn't want it to end I kept flipping for more pages. Go get this book now.

Fool Me Once was a great read! This might be my favorite by Brittany Crowley. I loved Lexi and Nate and hated Carter! I wanted to punch him a few times. Nate was sexy and so swoony! I want my own Nate! Lexi was strong and independent. Lexi and Nate had amazing chemistry. They were perfect together! Definitely recommend this!
