I have been attached to the FOOL GOLD’S series by Susan Mallery for a long time, she’s been publishing these books since 2010 and I’ve been reading them every since. Each book has their own unique characters and each one makes me smile. I have to say, though, I finally found the couple I just didn’t click with. Unfortunately THRILL ME was my least favorite FOOL’S GOLD book, even though I LOVE this series, sometimes me and the characters just don’t get along and that character just happens to by Maya.



Susan Mallery’s 18th book in the FOOL’S GOLD series is focused on Maya Fallow and Del Mitchell. The Mitchell brothers are the next hottie heroes of the FOOL’S GOLD series. Del Mitchell is basically an adventure seeker, a celebrity because of his thirst for trying new things. He is asked by the mayor to team up with Maya Farlow, his ex-girlfriend to shoot a series of promotional Fool’s Gold videos.

Maya and Del’s relationship ended a long time ago when they were just teenagers and they haven’t seen each other since. They’ve gone through many different relationships and places and have finally come back home. Only to be thrust back into each other’s worlds immediately.

It was a cute romance and I did like Del, I just didn’t feel it with Maya. Her story didn’t ring true for me and I felt it was a little too forced for me. Whereas, Mallery’s last novel KISS MEE which had Maya’s stepbrother, Zane and her best friend Phoebe– I loved, and thought it was one of the BEST Fool’s Gold book, this one just didn’t do it for me. This gives me pain because I love this series.

Love the series, didn’t love this particular one. Read the series, you don’t want to miss out on it, though.


Recommendation: For fans of contemporary romance. I highly recommend this series for ROMANCE fans. Go back to the beginning or pick them up wherever. Amazing series and great characters

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…
