Meet the Mitchell brothers of Fool's Gold, California—five gorgeous men who've left a trail of broken hearts in their wake…
Maya Farlow learned the hard way to depend only on herself, so when she fell too deeply for the bad-boy charms of Del Mitchell, she did the only thing she could—she ran. Stunned, Del left Fool's Gold to make his name and fortune in extreme sports.
Now ten years later, Maya's been hired to promote her hometown's new slogan, The Destination for Romance. The celebrity spokesman is none other than Del, the man she dumped but never forgot. Awkward!
Although Del's not the type to hold a grudge, he's determined to avoid falling a second time for the woman who broke his heart. He's a daredevil, not an idiot. Trouble is, in all his adventures, he never found a rush as exhilarating as Maya's kiss. Maybe risking his heart will prove to be the biggest thrill of all…
I look forward to summer every year, not because I love s’Mores and Camping in the mountains. Not because I like the break from insanity of the school year, or because I like the heat. But because summer means 3 new Fool’s Gold books! And this year was no exception!
Thrill me is a fun and fresh new story. We’ve had hints of the Mitchell family in the past few books, and we got to know Maya in Kiss me! But I loved the story between Del and Maya – childhood love rekindled. They hit it off as soon as they were reunited and then slowly built into a real relationship.
Unfortunately, I have to admit that this is possibly my least favorite Fool’s Gold book. Maybe it’s that Kiss Me was so fantastic that I couldn’t put it down, and I read Thrill Me immediately on it’s heels. I’m not sure. But for me, I was more into finding out if Del’s brother’s get their own stories! I found Maya’s relationship with Mrs. Mitchell endearing, and loved the side characters more than I did this actual story. (And of course Eddie and Gladys, the local old lady brigade, was an absolute hoot!)
No matter what? Susan Mallery has a great story, and an excellent addition to her beloved Fool’s Gold series!
