 Book #20

We already know Shelby & Aidan from previous books. Shelby is the sister of our darling ski-pro Kipling, who is now running the town's search and rescue team. And Aidan is one of five brothers, and he runs the Fool's Gold adventure tours ... We heard about what happened in their lives and families before, but of course we talk about it all again in here.

Aidan and Shelby couldn't be any different.
Shelby is a girl who is afraid to get hurt, and that's why she always chooses idiots to date. Ones who would never hurt her heart or body. But she wants to settle down, get married, have kids one day soon. How can she do that when she's scared of guys?
Aidan will run far and fast from anything connected with commitment. He will never fall in love and get married. He didn't have the best examples in his parents.
That's why he does the serial hook-up thing with tourists. They don't stay long, they leave and won't come back....most of the time at least... Because after one of those encounters goes a bit wrong, he's sworn off women for a while.
And that's where Shelby's idea brings them both together.
Why don't they try to be friends? Just a girl and a guy being good friends. Doing stuff together and talk and just hang out. That would help Shelby to lose her fear of guys and Aidan would finally see that girls are people too, not only play-things.

But of course there's the old question...Can a guy and a girl be only friends???

What will happen to Shelby & Aidan?
Will friendship turn into love?
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 loved this story.
Shelby and Aidan!

Two people who on the outside don't appear to have anything in common, but it really works.
Friendship turns into lust and love and it's so adorable to watch poor Aidan finally fall for someone!

And then there's Shelby and the bakery - all her ideas for the business and Aidan and his adorable new room-mate.
And of course all the other Fool's Gold couples we already know - LOTS of them pregnant or just new parents.
I just love this town!!!!

I really loved every second of the story - the sexy and romantic moments - the funny moments (male pedicures and babyshowers!) - sad and moving moments.... just perfect!
