5 Stars
New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's classic blend of lighthearted humor and intense emotional conflict works its magic on two newcomers to the California town of Fool's Gold, which Library Journal calls "a setting so real and appealing readers will want to start scoping out real estate."

Destiny Mills believes passion has its place
like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for oncethe rest is terrified what'll happen if she does.

Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills
and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trustand before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.

 Book #16 - and finally Kipling's story - we've been waiting for him to come to town, ever since out Mayor went flying around the world to find him ☺

He's a former Ski-Superstar / Olympic Gold Medal winner ... who's unfortunately had to end his career because of a bad accident - he almost ended up in a wheel-chair :(
But now he's in our favorite town, running the newly formed HERO - Search & Rescue unit.

And Destiny - she's in town for a few months to get the HERO software up and running...and then she'll leave again. That's what she always does. Work at one place for a while and leave. But this time things might be different. Not only because she's horribly attracted to Kipling (but she's SO NOT starting something with an adrenaline junkie!!! - at least that's what she's telling herself - she wants a quiet and safe and nice man.) But there's also her new half-sister. Not really new - Starr is already 15, but they never met before. And now she lives with Destiny. And the kid will probably need a safe place to live....and she seems to like it in Fool's Gold.

And even if Destiny might admit to herself to like the town and its people.... she doesn't believe in love...
She had a rough childhood. With famous country-singer-parents who were divorced and married a million times ... she never had a safe place to live until her grandma took her away from Nashville into the mountains to live with her.

But she still has some Nashville left in her...she needs music...to listen to it - to create and play it - and to even sing it - but she only does all that in the privacy of her bedroom.....

Will Kipling - with his fix-everyone-who-needs-fixing gene - be able to pull her out of her denial and get her to believe in love and life??
Could this gorgeous guy and this lovely town, probably be her - ha-ha - Destiny??? ☺

What will happen to Destiny & Kipling?
Will there be a HEA?

Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

Ugh - I just LOVE Fool's Gold and it's people - I would be happy to have a new Fool's Gold book every month for the rest of my life! ☺

I was sooo looking forward to finally find out what Mayor Marsha had in mind when she went to New Zealand to get Kipling ☺ Now we know....
He's so cute and funny and sexy and it's really admirable how he dealt with the loss of the love of his life: skiing.... He misses it like crazy, but he knows he needs to start the next phase of his life....and not only will the HERO unit be part of it -  he's also hoping that Destiny will be the most important part of it.... But of course he doesn't know that in the beginning - he's happy that she'll leave again in a few months...he's not looking for something serious...poor guy ☺

Just like every single Fool's Gold Romance, HOLD ME was just as great...
Of course we already meet or at least hear about, some new guys & girls  -  who will find their HEA in the up-coming books...can't wait!!!

GO AND BUY  HOLD ME - it's another amazing Mallery Romance that has it all: The town of Fool's Gold with all its amazing inhabitants - a hot Ski-God - Love - Moving & adorable moments & romantic sexiness like all of SUSAN'S books = JUST PERFECT
