Before he was writing chart-topping hits and smashing record sales, Chase Lawson was Emma's childhood friend and first love. They promised each other forever, but forever expired at 18, when he landed a major record deal and left Emma and their hometown behind.
Ten years later, he shows up at their high school reunion with a proposition she can't refuse. Six months. Seven figures.

It isn't long before Emma feels her resolve slipping, crushed by the shadow of the boy she grew to love in the man selling out stadiums of present. Can Emma resist one of the most irresistible bachelors in the world? Or will she fall for the same man twice?

Fool Me Once est une histoire de seconde chance, comme l'auteure sait si bien les écrire. Emma est un personnage attachant, et la voir lutter pour ne pas retomber amoureuse de Chase m'a permis d'apprécier ce livre, car je n'aime pas quand les choses sont trop faciles…
Le personnage de Chase m'a ému, sa fragilité et le manque qu'il a subi, malgré une carrière au top niveau. Le proverbe "l'argent ne fait pas le bonheur" s'applique complètement à son histoire. Et sa remise en question, et les moyens qu'il se donne pour reconquérir Emma m'ont touché.
En bref, une histoire de seconde chance entre une star de la country à qui il manque l'amour de sa vie, et la fille de ses rêves qui tente de panser ses blessures et de protéger son coeur. Si vous avez aimez les précédentes romances de Nicole sur le même thème, alors vous devez lire celle-ci !

“Fine. Six months. One million dollars.” He exhaled. “Final offer.” My hand was dangerously close to ripping the handle from the bench. “One million dollars.” My mind raced with everything I could do with that money. Restoring the farmhouse the way I’d dreamed, turning it into a quaint B& B with an agrarian twist. Spoiling my parents with a fancy cruise and a new farm truck. Finally getting to travel to some of the places I’d only imagined through the pictures of a magazine. All it would take was six months with Chase’. It wasn’t exactly an easy decision, but it wasn’t a hard one.’
It was a perfect mix of flirty, fun, and forgiveness: no deep, dirty secrets, no heavy, horrible pasts to be uncovered. I particularly loved that Chase just knew she was it for him...
“Six months,” I whispered unevenly. His mouth lowered, floating just above my lips. “I’d take six seconds.”
‘Fool Me Once’ was the epitome of a feel-good romance, and there was some little twist that made it interesting. I love Nicole Williams and even though this book had a few typos ... I enjoyed it.
I fell in love with these characters very fast. There is no way you can dislike Chase or Emma. No freaking way. They are everything characters should be. I may even venture to say that Chase could be a book boyfriend of mine, if I had book boyfriends.
I am just going to throw it out there. The sex in this book fits perfectly. It's in all of the right places. It's not overdone. It just fits. And it's hawt. Like, my husband almost got laid while I was reading this book... almost. I felt reading the book was more important, so I kept with the book instead.
If you are looking for a sweet, enjoyable, second chance with a happily ever after, look no further. It's right here. I can't see how one wouldn't enjoy this book.
I loved Emma and Chase together. I never, not even for a second, thought they weren’t destined to be together. Emma Might have been a little less sure, but Chase and I – we knew. I am usually not a huge fan of manipulating someone to agree to a relationship – fake or not – for any reason. However, I felt it worked wonderfully in this setting. I’m 100% sure Emma wouldn’t have given Chase the time of day any other way. I didn’t quite buy that she would agree to his arrangement as quickly as he did, but for the sake of moving their story forward, I was happy she did.
Chase was the darling of this book, Emma was sweet too, but I didn’t feel the connection to her I did to Chase. He seemed genuine in his intentions, and never shied away from telling Emma how he felt about her, regardless of if she believed him or not. My heart reached out to him; I could feel how broken he was from his past – even if we never quite knew the details of what he’d gone through. I loved them together and hoped beyond hope that Emma would see the sincerity in Chase’s pleas because I wanted her to give into him so badly.
Fool Me Once was mostly conflict-free, there was a smidge of controversy that was quickly resolved, which resulted in a mostly angst-free novel. There was still plenty going on with Emma and Chase rediscovering their connection and romance, so it moved along quickly in that regard. The climax wasn’t horribly surprising, neither was the resolution, but they felt true to the characters and the story.
While Fool You Once was a complete story, I think there were a couple of things that could have punched it up and taken it to the next level. One would have been more insight into their pasts. We get enough to have a surface understanding of why he left, but little more than that. I feel like seeing the intensity of their young love would have made their adult love story more vital to the reader. Also, if there were ever a book that was begging for an epilogue, it’s this one. The ending felt incredibly abrupt, and a left me slightly unfulfilled.
