Meet the Mitchell brothers of Fool's Gold, Californiafive 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

 Book #18

We already met Maya in the previous book - but then she was only the step-sister and best friend of our hero and heroine. Now she has her own story.

Maya used to live in Fool's Gold until she left years ago. She not only left her family and the town - but also the love of her young life: Del...She was just too young and too scared to believe this amazing boy could be in love with her - forever...

But now she's back, because our darling Mayor Marsha wants her to promote the town's new slogan...

But being back in town also means that she might run into Del again...
Which is exactly what happens - at her first meeting with the Mayor ☺

Del is supposed to be the person in front of the camera, and Maya will shoot the town's promo videos.

That means working closely together ... and those old feelings and sparks have never vanished.
But it's not as easy as just falling back in love again..
Del had been hurt really bad when she left and he's not sure if he's ready to forgive and forget.
Plus there are still some secrets, that could ruin a possible newly blossoming love...

What will happen to Maya & Del?
Will Del stay in town? Will he forgive her?
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 loooved this story.
Maya and Del.
Two people who could've had their HEA ten years ago.
But they were both too young and scared and restless.
It was good for Del to leave town and have adventures all over the world. And it was also good for Maya to be her own person for a while and do some growing up.
Now they're both finally ready to settle down - the only question is: will they settle down with the first person they ever fell in love with? Or is it too late for such a happy ending? :/

I really loved every second of the story - the sexy and romantic moments - and especially the funny moments - most of them including our geriatric town darlings Eddie & Gladys ☺☺☺

The first line of the book was hilarious already ☺☺☺

Maya Farlow told herself there was a perfectly good explanation for the mayor of Fool's Gold to have a picture of a man's naked butt on her computer screen. At least she really hoped there was.

GO AND BUY  THRILL ME - it's another amazing Mallery Romance that has it all: The town of Fool's Gold with all its amazing inhabitants - a beautiful Romance between two amazing people - moving & adorable moments & romantic sexiness like all of SUSAN'S books = JUST PERFECT
