Hi, I’m Drew. Some of you might know me or will know me from the novella Fool Me Once. I worry I may have gotten a bad rap and I just wanted to clear the air.
Yes, I left Skylar alone in a hotel room after a great weekend with her. And I do mean great. *wink wink* And yes, I didn’t call her or anything after that weekend. I very much regret it. From the moment I first kissed Skylar, I knew she was the one. She was going to change everything for me. And it scared the shit out of me. My whole life flashed before me and suddenly all I saw were baby strollers, bottles, a golden retriever, and all that family sort of stuff. Panic set in for sure. So, I ran. And I didn’t mean to just stop talking to her. But then a week went by and then it was two and before I knew it, I knew I couldn’t contact her. Too much time had passed and if you know Skylar, then you know she would have cussed me as far as she could. So, I decided to try and move on. I casually started to see Francesca, knowing it wouldn’t go anywhere. She didn’t really want me and I didn’t want her. But, don’t hold too much against her, Francesca isn’t as bad as she seems. It’s just going to take a very special man to help her see that money isn’t everything.
Well, as soon as Skylar entered my life again, I knew I couldn’t let her go and I had to do whatever it took to get her back. So, that’s what I did. She didn’t make it easy, that’s for sure. And she still doesn’t. Skylar is never going to let me forget what I did. Sure, she’s forgiven, but she hasn’t forgotten. She keeps me in line and I’m loving every moment with her. I made a mistake, but many of us do at some point, right? I just had to make it right again between Skylar and I. I had to show her I could stick around and be that man she wanted. Now the thought of baby strollers and all that aren’t too scary. In fact, I’m sort of looking forward to it all. Now, to just convince Skylar.

Fool Me Once
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…
Drew is the last person Skylar wanted to see across from her at a local bar. A month ago he'd wined and dined her all weekend, leaving her feeling fully in love, but then she awoke alone in an empty hotel room and she hadn't heard from him since.
The weekend Drew spent with Skylar was phenomenal. There had never been anyone who made him feel as complete as she did. He shouldn't have disappeared, he should have called, but his feelings for her scared him, so he distanced himself. But when he saw her again, he knew he couldn't stay away any longer.
Skylar's determined not to give Drew another chance to hurt her, but he's just as determined to win her back. Although it won't be easy, he's up to the challenge, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal.
