Fool Me Once by Jessica Joy
Toni and Blair were friends once, or at least Blair had thought they were friends until Toni’s betrayal caused a botched sting operation that had nearly cost him his life and had cost the lives of two of his friends.
Toni arrives back in Blair’s life under mysterious circumstances. When she wakes after an accident she has no memory of her past except for the strange disconnected images of a murder scene that haunt her dreams.
Blair wants to take down Toni’s lover Farrell Hagen, the man responsible for the deaths of his friends. To do this Blair needs information he believes Toni can give him once she regains her memory. Desperate to keep her safe until she can give him the information he needs, Blair tells Toni they were long time friends and had planned to spend the Christmas holidays together.
However, the fraud he perpetrates takes on a life of its own and reality begins to pattern itself after his lie when this Toni is nothing like the Toni he knew before the accident and he finds himself emotionally and sexually attracted to her.
As they work together to try to piece together the meaning behind the disjointed scenes of a murder that haunt Toni’s dreams the attraction between them flares. When they make love for the first time they learn that things can’t possibly be as they thought. This knowledge puts them on a collision course with death as they race to unlock the secrets of Toni’s mind before the killer comes for Toni.
