Hold Me (Fool's Gold, Book 18) by Susan Mallery was the next book in my pile to read. I got a ton of books at the same time at the library so I was glad to see that there were still some on the shelf. Luckily. I was able to read them so quickly that I haven't even had to worry about renewing the books. I think that might be a problem but the series has gone quickly and was a great summer read!!
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
once…the 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 trust—and before you soar, you have to be
willing to fall.
I thought that this was a good book but not one of the best in the series. There was lots of things that unfolded that created interest but I wasn't a fan of the book as a whole because the characters made strange decisions that I just couldn't get behind as ringing true. Both Destiny and Kipling have gone against their parents to the other extreme which equally impairs their life. It is great to watch the ups and downs so that the characters grow from their experiences. I hope that you check out this book at your local library or bookstore to see for yourself because it just might have been an off day for me. Add this and the rest of the Fool's Gold series to your reading list and enjoy!!
