I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.
We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.
Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.
Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once...
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

“Second chances, 5 stars”
Keegan and Blakely met on a beach during spring break. They spent all their time together and when it came time to go their separate ways they didn’t want to, but had to. Over the years Blakely has looked for Keegan only for him to never pop up, until he does. Is finding Keegan too good to be true?
Keegan has wondered about Blakely throughout the years. She’s the woman who swept him off his feet that one spring break. When he finds her, he can’t help but want her? When he finds out about her child, he wants her more. But when he finds out someone in her life is lying to her will he be able to keep her safe? Or will it all blow up in his face?
Oh how did I love Keegan and Blakely! Ash killed it with this one. From the first page to the last I was sucked in and didn’t want to stop. I loved the main characters but I also loved some of the secondary. Blakely’s child was adorable. Ash can write a single parent romance like no other. I loved Blakely’s sister and Keegan’s twin brother. To wrap up this review without giving too much away all I will say is scroll up and one-click Fool Me Once, you won’t regret it.

Fool Me Once is a standalone 2nd chance love story that had me hooked from the moment it landed in my hands.
Blakely hasn’t been living, when she tags along as chaperone to her sister’s spring break, she meets Keegan; gorgeous and someone to have a holiday fling with. When they go their separate ways Blakely searches for Keegan but as time goes on she gives up hope until she comes face to face with a version of him she would never have expected. When Blakely’s best friend gets her caught up in his mess she finds out that Keegan isn’t who he says he is; when all is said and done will lose her again?
I personally loved this story, Ash had me hook line and sinker; adulting thrown out the window. I really enjoyed Blakely’s sister and Keegan’s brother, I can only hope that they will get their own book because if they are not I might have to start begging.

Just as I’m turning the page in my book, someone yells, “Watch out!” Unsure of where the voice is coming from, I look to the left and then to the right, but before I can grasp what’s happening, the circular object hits my hand, and my book flies out of my grasp and into the water.
“Shit! I’m so sorry.” A half-naked guy comes running over, sand kicking up around him as his strong legs pound into the ground. The closer he gets, the more of him I’m able to see, and holy shit, do I like what I see. Messy brown hair I could picture running my fingers through, tanned, smooth skin I would enjoy kissing and licking, and if I’m feeling frisky, biting.
My eyes rake over his tattooed, sculpted chest and down to his abs. Two-four-sex… I mean six. God damn! Look at that six-pack. He must work out, probably several times a day. Damn, I’d love for him to work me out…
As he jogs over, his corded arm muscles flex, making it appear as if the ink on his arms is coming alive, and I briefly imagine holding on to those arms while he fucks me good and hard. He runs past me, and I follow his every move. When he bends over, I check out his butt that’s hidden under his low-hanging board shorts as I fantasize about my legs wrapped around his waist and my heels digging into that butt…
But then he turns around, and in his hands is the now sopping wet copy of Wuthering Heights, and I instantly snap out of my lust-filled thoughts.
“Here you go,” he says sheepishly, the soaking wet book dangling from his fingers. Drops of saltwater fall down and land on my knee. My eyes meet his, and just as I’m about to snap at him, the corner of his mouth lifts into a nervous smile, and a single dimple pops out on his cheek, and once again, I’m momentarily distracted by just how good-looking he is.
“Thanks so much.” My reply drips with sarcasm. Taking the book from him, I examine the saturated, ruined pages, and mumble, “At least it wasn’t my mom’s copy.”
“I’m Keegan.” His half-smile turns into a cocky grin. Oh, hell, no…
“I’m not interested.”
He throws his head back with the most beautiful laugh I’ve ever heard. It’s raspy and deep and sexy. My eyes land on his Adam’s apple, and my tongue darts out, wanting to lick down his throat.
“Fair enough.” He nods. “I really am sorry about the book.” His gorgeous forest green eyes meet mine. “Can I do something to make it up to you?”
“Like sleep with me?” I give him a playful smirk. I haven’t slept with many guys, but I’ve had a couple one-night stands over the last few years. My way of lashing out over my mom’s death.
“No.” He shakes his head. “We’ve already established you’re not interested. Although, I think, based on the way you were eye-fucking me on my way over here, I could probably convince you otherwise.”
