Summary

"Some husbands bought their wives flowers, others bought jewellery. Mine? He returned the things he stole."

I should have known better. Hot guys didn’t hit on big girls without an agenda. They didn’t approach them in bars and talk their way into your bed. They also didn’t make you feel beautiful and proud of your curves. But I was going through a dry spell - actually, I’d kind of been going through a dry spell all my life - and dry spells sucked. Of course I slept with him. 

I was such a fool. 

I believed his lines. Fell for his easy smile; the man swept me off my feet, rocked my world, then robbed me blind. 

I really needed a three-date rule. 

Angry and embarrassed, I engaged the help of my best friend to track the thief down and make him return what he took. But when I found him, he wasn’t alone....

What does a girl do when she finds not one thief, but an entire family? 

She marries into it, of course. 

Fool Me Twice, the first in an epic and hilarious crime series from best-selling Australian author Lilliana Anderson.

An unconventional romance

Fool Me Twice was an unusual tale and I enjoyed this gem of a story. It was engrossing and had me hooked from beginning to end. This is the first book in the Cartwright Brothers series and I can't wait to start the other books. I have to admit I'm intrigued by all the brothers and I want to know their story. This was Nate and Hollands story. I loved Nate but Holland was a little to airy for my taste as she did some really silly things in this book.
With fantastic characters, steamy scenes, action, drama, angst and some hilarious moments, this storyline was one I have not read before. I thoroughly enjoyed this unconventional romance and would highly recommend it to all lovers of contemporary romance.
I listened to the audiobook version of this novel which was narrated by Amy Soakes. It took me awhile to get into this narration. I did not care for the voice the narrator used for the female characters, it was a bit to high pitched (squeaky) for my liking, the rest of the narration however was good.

Feel Like A Disney Princess.

I really enjoyed listening to this. As Holland was a normal person with real problems and worries. She made mistakes wore her heart on her sleeve and wasn't afraid to eat food. I think this will be a series featuring the Cartwright Brother's i will definitely enjoy. I highly recommend either listening or reading this. It rocks.

Unique Rom-Com

This was a great and hot start to the Cartwright Brothers series! Lilliana does a great job of developing the story and each character. The main thing that I couldn’t understand was Holland. I’m not quite sure how one person lets the same thing happen to them back to back. Later in the book, I do start to like her and her personality better though. Certain parts of this book were a little unbelievable, but overall it was really great. I did enjoy all of the action, steamy scenes, laughable moments, angst, and drama. I can’t wait to see where this journey goes with the rest of the series! Amy created a wonderful performance with her narration. Each character had a distinct voice and she did great accents for them as well. I love when a narrator can bring a book to life for me with their voice.

Aussie heat

Honestly this title wasn’t exactly my cuppa. On the whole the plot was entertaining but the female lead drove me a little bonkers. The family dynamic was great and I am definitely going to read the next in the series. The narration took me a little bit to get used to but once I settled into it I think Amy did a great job.

Holland💘Nate! Great Story, Great Audible Listen🎧

Enjoyable with some hilarous LOL moments!, Lilliana Anderson created an original story, with interesting storylines and characters. It is the type of story that has you laughing at times and then rolling your eyes at others. Sure some of it is over the top, like who can fall victim to being robbed the same way twice. Oh yea, that would be Holland, I really liked Holland, she was especially her spirit and personalty, I was so glad the circumstances she fell in did not break her and she stayed true to herself. And then there is Nate, I loved the chemistry between them from the start. While I did not care for his family business and despised his mother I did love the way the story played out and the direction the author took it. This is a fast paced story, it is entertaining and has drama, angst, twists, some great humor and hot romance. I am looking for forward to hear more about those Cartwright Brothers, hope their books become available on Audible soon. Liliana Anderson, thank you for this great & entertaining story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Amy Soakes is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life, gives each their own unique voice and personality. She is a skilled and entertaining storyteller, a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for great listen🎧

Fool me once, Shame on you!

There is something to be said for a family of crime that can be so crooked, yet make me laugh out loud! The Cartwright family did just that! Holland is a bigger girl, slightly awkward and getting older. But she can sing! When Nate Cartwright hears her, he immediately is taken by her. Or is he taking from her? This story from the beginning is quirky and made me smile. Holland is your average woman, has confidence issues, but when provoked is fearless. I loved her tonacity, chasing after Nate without a plan and getting herself into a sticky predicament. I loved Nate with his incredible charm. Though questionable employment, his personality and good looks would win any woman over, so I certainly can understand Holland's quandary! Add in the brothers, his mother and Holland's best friend, and there is chaos and love. A fun listen and will leave you wanting to get to know the next Cartwright better.

Amy Soakes does an amazing job narrating this book. Her American accent is spot on and her pace is perfect. I love her comedic timing, each joke and passage bringing a smile to my face. Its a great listen.

Original and Fun!

This was my first Lilliana Anderson's book. This is the first book in the Cartwright Brothers. Holland and Nate's relationship is hilarious, steamy, twisted, but also cute. I like their happy ending. The Cartwright Family is just crazy. Amy Soakes did an amazing job with the narration. I love her beautiful accent.

Smiling and Laughing the Whole Time

This is one that has had me thinking about it for days afterwards because it was just so adorable. I was found myself constantly grinning at Holland and Nate's relationship and the circumstances of the situation. Holland is a bigger girl that is socially awkward but is also quirky and at the same time hilarious; she does seem like a little bit of an airhead at some points in the book, but I still really liked her as a character. I liked that even though she got herself and her friend into a bad situation, that they were able to make the best of things. Also, very well written steamy moments throughout! The author did a fabulous job writing this one and I really enjoyed this listen.

The narrator did an excellent job in this performance. She was really able to magnify Holland's mannerisms in such a way that made me love her as a character so much more. She also did a great job differentiating between character voices and easily kept me engaged throughout.

Has Potential

This is a steamy listen that falls a bit flat for me. The book starts off with a hot hookup but after that it goes downhill for me. I really couldn't get into the rest of the story. Marrying someone who only slept with you to steal from you...don't think so. I guess if you can overlook that then give this book a chance. Otherwise, don't bother. The narration was alright. Amy Soakes did well with the emotions but I thought she had the female voices a bit too high pitched for my liking but I would've been able to adjust to it if the story had been better.
