Book Review - Only Mine: A Fool's Gold Novel by Susan Mallery

Summer is quickly coming to an end, but there is still time to check out a few great books in the Summer Reading Challenge.

One book I just fell in love with is "Only Mine: A Fool's Gold Novel" by Susan Mallery.

About The Book:

You can't win if you don't play...

Her town's lack of men may make headlines, but it isn't news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool's Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers— the perfect contestants— off the show.

Despite Dakota's better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn't dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.

"Only Mine" is book four in Susan Mallery's "Fool's Gold" series, and follows the story of triplet sisters Dakota, Nevada and Montana Hendrix. These are some sassy gals with feisty attitudes and a longing to find a little bit of love in their lives.

I love the interplay between the three sisters, but make no bones about it - this is Dakota's story. The lively relationship between Dakota and Finn is sexy but also a lot of fun. Fans of contemporary romance will truly enjoy this story.

My only regret - that I hadn't found Susan's first three books in this series ("Chasing Perfect," "Almost Perfect," and "Finding Perfect") before now, but it's a mistake I am setting about to remedy as soon as possible.

Book Five - "Only Yours" - Montana's story - comes out this week! Book Six - "Only His" - Nevada's story - will be released in September. So stay tuned for an upcoming reviews soon!
