The sassy and beautiful Lenor...more
He’s good at creating spreadsheets and adding numbers but this time he has to do more. He has to go to places and be a little more human than a computer. Something that he’s not really good at but Lenore is. The woman who hates what he does for a living.

We all remember Lenny and Halsey from the first book - BUT you don't have to have read it - these two are just the best friends and siblings from book #1. But they also work in the same field. Lenny is running her charity and Halsey is the behind-the-desk finance guy of his con-family's 'empire'. Lenny hates Halsey after everything that happened in book #1, but he needs to be there for her and help with the finances of the charity, or she might go to jail - and his brother might kill him for not ...more
Every Ainslie Paton book is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.
If you have read One Night Wife, then you have already kinda met our leading man and lady, Lenny and Halsey.
We know that Halsey Sherwood is a grifter, a con man who will take you down (well, if you are a despot who needs taking down).
Lenny has been dragged into the con by her best friend Fin and Halsey's brother Cal in the last book, hates the con game and ...more
OK fine, Ainslie Paton can take all my money. I've had nothing but positive experiences with her books, but I think Fool Me Forever is my favorite from her. The Confidence Games series has been mindblowing, romantic and immensely fun to read.
Fool Me Forever picks up where One Night Wife ended, told from the perspectives of Lenny Bradshaw, partner and friend to Fin, and Halsey Sherwood, brother of Cal. Lenny is understandably furious at the Sherwoods and Fin for their scam, even more so beca ...more

because I'm very much for this???
First we have Lucy Parker's Luc in Pretty Face looking like Gregory Peck, and now Ainslie's Halsey has Paul Newman looks??? Now I need somebody to write a Christopher Plummer circa Sound of Music lookalike hero, hopefully also a repressed single dad okbai-
Fool Me Forever featured Lenore, Fin from One Night Wife's best friend, and Halsey, Cal's younger brother. I didn't reread ONW be ...more

his is the second book in her modern day Robin Hood series The Confidence Game. This time we get the shy, bookish hero and the only woman who knows he is a con and doesn't want to have anything to do with him.
There is great chemistry between the MCs but she carries lots of baggage because of her family and his family and what they ...more
Lenny is out to clear her charity's name after being caught up with a partners money laundering. Halsey has been sent to help but Lenny isn't open to that at first. But they start to slowly work together which in turns gives their feelings time to grow.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book.
While the romance is clearly there and a big part of the book, I really liked how the plot didn't revolve around it-- these are my favorite types of romances, because there is other things going on. In this case, they are trying to swindle a big time swindler. I love it.
The characters were fantastic. Halsey is a fantastic male lead. He isn't the usual arrogant, impos ...more
I really loved this one after the book #1 in the series. In terms of dialogues, scenes, characters, story, plot, pace of the story, everything is quite good about the book. I really liked the book #1 and the #2 is also very nice.
The characters, I already love them and the way they are expanded in the story is beautiful. There is so much in terms of feel and emotion that romance readers must read the series.
A lovely and enjoyable read. Definitely recommend it!!!
Halsey likes to be behind the scenes. It's easier to stay safe that way. When his brother takes off with his wife and leaves him with directions to help his new sister in laws bff... who knew it would be so hard.
It was good and the battle for keeping Lenny safe is interes ...more
Anyway, a con-artist promises to help the woman he's entranced with and her struggling non-profit get their money back after being caught up in a scandalous swindle by a bad foreign investor. All Lenore has to do is fake-date Halsey, gain entrance to his high class world, and let his skills of lying and deception help her get the money back.
Swoony and I love a great heist!
Thank you to the publisher fo ...more
