    Not necessarily. It means that she made you believe her story, even though it wasn´t true.

    I would use 'I was taken in by her story' or 'She took me in with her story'.

    That could be "drew me in."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
