Review


"Warm, funny, and sexy, this lighthearted yet touching page-turner is a satisfying, rewarding read and the ‘ perfect' beginning for Mallery's Fool's Gold series." - Library Journal  on Chasing Perfect


"The book brims with quick-witted, good-natured characters... [the] romance grows poignantly and with chemistry to spare."

- Publishers Weekly on Chasing Perfect



"...an abundance of warmth, caring and romantic passion. Guaranteed to touch your heart!" - RT Book Reviews on Almost Perfect



Best Books of 2010! Finding Perfect was selected by Amazon editors as one of the Top Ten Romance Novels of 2010.

From the Back Cover

Her town's lack of men may make headlines, but it isn't news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool's Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers--the perfect contestants--off the show. Despite Dakota's better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn't dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying Read July 26, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Overseeing a romance reality competition in Fool's Gold, CA poses big problems for Dakota Hendrix, but having two of the most eligible bachelors yanked off the contest by an angry elder brother--a very sexy elder brother--poses an even bigger problem. Especially when she finds herself drawn to the hunky Alaskan.

All the beautiful psychologist wants to do is the job for which she's paid--not screen eligible bachelors. But everyone in the town, from the mayor on down, convinces her she needs to give back to the community, so instead of designing math workshops, she herding hopeful contestants anxious to win the monetary prize.

Finn Anderssen storms into Fool's Gold in search of his younger twin brothers Sasha and Stephen who've abandoned their college studies one semester short of graduation to enter the competition. Finn is determined to drag his brothers back to South Salmon where he is partner in an air cargo transport business and knock some sense into them. Dakota warns him that tactic could end badly and convinces him to allow the twins to stay in the competition. Against his better judgment, he acquiesces, and agrees to pilot the contestants to various venues where they'll be filming. This gives him a chance to oversee their actions. Finn has cared for his brothers ever since their parents were killed on a flying mission, and he takes his duty seriously--to the point of smothering the young men with concern for their education and careers.

When the contestants are paired, Sasha's girl is a lovely young woman with a keen desire to be a television or film star--the same goal as Sasha's. Stephen, however, finds himself paired with Aurelia, a plain accountant nine years his senior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Love Love Fools Gold!!! August 2, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The 4th book in the Fools Gold series Only Mine is a story that grabs you from the first page. The sparks that are flying catch your attention and you just can't put it down. The instant connection you can feel jump from the pages between Dakota and Finn is amazing. You fall for them both in this story of loyalty, love, family, drama, and fun.
Dakota Hendrix is a psychologist. She is also one of six children and one of three triplets. She lives in the small town of Fools Gold, CA. In this story we see her go through trials and tribulations of sadness and hurt while continuing to want the family she's always dreamed of.
Finn Anderssen is a responsible and driven brother and pilot from a small town in Alaska. He has spent 8 yrs doing the right thing and raising his twin brothers after their parents passed away in a plane crash. He is very ready to have the boys finish college and start their lives so he can go back to his carefree life he left behind.
Finn's brothers decide they are going to try out for a reality show filming in none other than Fools Gold. Finn is very unhappy with this and flies down to drag them back kicking and screaming to finish college. When he meets Dakota she catches him off guard with her sympathy and cheerful attitude and decides to stay to keep an eye on the boys.
Dakota is roped into helping with a reality show that has come to town and becomes a production assistant. In storms a tall gorgeous man with a flannel shirt and an attitude. She's got smart mouthed comebacks and he's got irritation. We see how their friendship and casual dating escalates with an ending to mach Susan Mallery's greatness.

I absolutely loved this book and all it had in it. There were just the right amount of steamy loves scenes and lots of fun to go with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great summer reading! July 31, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fool's Gold is a small town with a unique problem - there's a man shortage. Now you might think they'd be overjoyed to have a reality show come to town and publicize this, but think about it. Would you want your home turned into a ratings ploy? Dakota Hendrix is the town's representative on the production crew, trying to manage the experience in a way that benefits the town. That's where she meets Finn Andersson. Like her, he's not thrilled with the reality show - his brothers have signed up despite his wishes. He wants them back in college and back on the life track he's picked for them.

This is a romance, a genre I love. The overall story arc is predictable - girl meets boy, conflict arises, conflict is overcome, they live happily ever after. But Susan Mallery is adept both with the characters and with the conflicts that arise. She adds some twists that surprised me (happily so). And Fool's Gold is a charming setting, full of women who care about each other...and the men who love them. It's perfect summer reading! I was drawn in from page 1, laughed several times along the way, and stayed up later than I should have because I just had to find out what happened next!

I heartily recommend Only Mine. After you indulge yourself, you'll want the next books in the series. Only Yours will be out in late August and Only His hits the shelves at the end of September. While you wait, go back and read the first three books Chasing Perfect, Almost Perfect, and Finding Perfect. You won't regret it!

Susan Mallery writes books that are fast reads. She includes humor in her books, with good plots. She doesn't repeat ideas, either.

Her books have spent more than 120 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list and have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestsellers list, statistically tied for #1 (THREE LITTLE WORDS, a Fool's Gold romance). Known for her keen insight into human nature and her humorous take on life, Susan Mallery has been described by RT Book Reviews as "in a class by herself!" and was featured as a Red Hot Read in Cosmopolitan Magazine.

She went on to get a Masters in Writing Popular Fiction and has extensively studied story structure in screenwriting courses, though she has no plans to write for the screen. Her goal, always, is to give readers a story that will move them, populated with characters who feel like real people.
