Thrill Me Book Review

I brought Thrill Me (Fool's Gold, Book 20) by Susan Mallery for my vacation beach read from my shelf of books that I got free from summer readings programs and other freebies.  I don't think that I have read much by the author before but it sounded like a nice light novel to read on the beach so I grabbed it and put in the bag for vacation.  Now that I know that it is part of a series, I guess I will have to see if I can get some from the library!!

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…

What a great summer read!!  This was a light romance book by an author that I hadn't read much if anything before this point.  I am adding her to the authors that I would love to read and finding out that this was part of a series made me even more excited to get to the library to check out a few more.  Maya moved back to the small town to rediscover her life after living the big life in the big city.  She is enjoying her new job when she realizes that she came back at the same time as her ex.  There is lots of drama in this well written book.  I enjoyed it and I hope that you do too.  It had great characters and I couldn't put it down.  It was great to read at the pool and the beach while learning all of the mistakes that Maya and Del were afraid to make again.  I hope that you check this out at your local library or bookstore soon.


  1. I like this author. I'm bad at remembering names of books but she has a short series out about a family that owns a vineyard. It was really good.

    1. Totally going to check those out. I went to the library and grabbed a bunch of books in this same series so I will get to them as soon as I finish the series I am working through now. I will have to find out what the vineyard ones are because they sound fun!! Thanks for the tip!
