Fool Me Once: A Novel


Ashley Winstead

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

Lee Stone is a twenty-first-century woman: she kicks butt at her job as a communications director at a women-run electric car company (thats better than Tesla, thank you), and after work she is Stoner, drinking guys under the table and never letting any of them get too comfortable in her bed&

Thats because Lees learned one big lesson: never trust love. Four major heartbreaks set her straight, from her father cheating on her mom all the way to Ben Laderman in grad school—who wasnt actually cheating, but she could have sworn he was, so she reciprocated in kind.

Then Ben shows up five years later, working as a policy expert for the most liberal governor in Texas history, just as Lee is trying to get a clean energy bill rolling. Things get complicated—and competitive—as Lee and Ben are forced to work together. Tension builds just as old sparks reignite, fanning the flames for a romantic dustup the size of Texas.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

ASHLEY WINSTEAD is an academic turned novelist with a PhD in contemporary American literature. She lives in Houston with her husband, two cats, and beloved wine fridge.
