Back Cover Blurb:

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…

My Review:

This is one of those novels that when you open it, the world outside your door slips away. Mallery combines true romance with deep emotion and a side of palpable chemistry to create a breathtaking whole. The lives of so many characters intertwine throughout, giving a glimpse of real life and all that goes with it. I love how for those following the series Fool’s Gold is so well and fully developed that you feel as if you’ve been or lived there, yet each novel can also easily be read as a standalone.

The major players in this novel were fantastic. Maya & Del both struggle with their pasts while dealing with the present. They are the type of individuals who are enjoyable both alone and separately. I really felt for Maya, being stuck between a rock and a hard place with the secrets she was asked to keep, yet her compassion was unmistakable. The entire Mitchell clan really came to life for me in this novel. I appreciated the little peeks at each of their lives and personalities. And OMG!!! I didn’t think that it was possible, but Eddie & Gladys have stepped their antics up a notch. They are absolutely priceless!

Mallery has once again created a small town romance with heart & substance. This is a second chance romance with a definite kick.
