New York Times bestselling sensation Susan Mallery returns to Fool's Gold, California, where it's true that sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs…

Former pro-football kicker Sam Ridge has notoriously bad luck with women—from cheaters to fame chasers. Still, the gorgeous brunette at the bar in Fool's Gold looks harmless—until she takes him home and he discovers a room devoted to securing a man, for life.

Dellina Hopkins never guessed that storing gowns from a friend's bridal boutique would chase away her first and only fling. After her parents died, she skipped her "wild youth" to raise her sisters. She doesn't want forever from Sam, but one night—all night—would've been nice.

His clean getaway gets messy when his firm hires Dellina to plan an event. As long hours lead to late nights, the two succumb to temptation again. Has Sam's luck finally changed? Or this time, will Dellina be the one to run?

My Thoughts:

 Book #14 - and we finally get to hear about Sam and Dellina ☺
We already met them in the previous book/s and I was really looking forward to hearing their story.

It's summer in Fool's Gold!
Last Valentine's Day, Sam (who has the worst luck with women) meets Dellina in a bar (she never had a one-night-stand before - but this former football star would be totally worth it)

They go back to Dellina's place and spent some amazing hours together - but when Sam gets up to get something to drink he accidentally walks into the spare bedroom, which is full of wedding dresses and an erase board with notes about how to get a guy to propose! Oh no, not again, he thinks and runs away! He's been caught in the clutches of insane women before.

But of course it's not as it seems - Dellina just stores those dresses for her friend Isabel and the Proposal-Board is her sister's ☺

Now, 5 months later - after trying to ignore each other in town all that time - they have to work together to organize Simon's company's clients-retreat in 4 weeks time.

The attraction is still there - lots of sparks - but Sam's been hurt before - a lot - and Dellina doesn't want anything serious.

Next to Sam's and Dellina's romance we also read about Dellina's sister Fayrene and her not-yet-fiancé Ryan. She told him she wanted to wait 4 years to get married - but now she's changed her mind, but she doesn't know how to tell him - she wants him to propose, but he wants to respect her wishes to wait... a very frustrating situation for everybody ☺

Then there's the tiny little side-story of our Mayor Marsha travelling to New Zealand - and ski-pro Kipling Gilmore - who happens to be there too.... what does the Mayor want with him??? She probably has some intersting plans for him in Fool's Gold ☺

But of course the main focus of the book is about our really sexy Football-Kicker Sam and Event-Planner Dellina.....

There might be some kisses - but they both don't want more....
or do they??? ☺


 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺

I don't want to spoil anything!!!


It's probably not a secret anymore that I loved all the Fool's Gold books - I would be happy to have a new Fool's Gold book every month for the rest of my life! ☺

And book #14 was just as great as all the others ☺
Sexy Sam and cute Dellina and all our old friends - and the new/future ones too ☺
Simon's family is amazingly funny too!!!! His mom is hilarious!!! Totally over-the-top sexually inappropriate ☺ I laughed sooo much!
And of course it was a bit frustrating - you always want to hit them all over the head with a blunt instrument!!! Why don't they see they belong together right at the start?? It always has to take them the whole book to get it right ☺ But I loved every page of that journey!

I wish someone would turn Fool's Gold into a TV-Series!!!
Should I ever be reborn when I die - I want to be a Festival in Fool's Gold ☺☺☺

A few pages of the book were not written in Sam & Dellina's POV - at first it was a bit weird - but then I got used to it - I was really interested in what Fayrene and Kipling had to say!
Can't wait to hear his story!!!

But the next book is about ex Quarterback Jack and his assistant Larissa ☺

I can't wait to see what they have in store for us ☺

BEFORE WE KISS - it's the perfect Romance: 
with the right amount of SEXiness, Romance, FUN, frustrating scenes, moving moments ♥ like all of SUSAN'S books = JUST PERFECT ☺
