You can't win if you don't play...

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.

Review:

"Mallery follows her Perfect contemporary trilogy with another gimmicky tale of Fool's Gold, Calif. The town's severe man shortage attracts a reality dating show, and Dakota Hendrix, a child psychologist, is roped into helping. Alaskan pilot Finn Andersson has twin brothers who are prospective contestants, and he wants them back home. For eight years he raised his siblings — now it's time they finish college, join the family business, and allow him to hang up his hero hat. But once he gets to Fool's Gold, he's drawn into Dakota's life. Finn's caring nature is on view as he helps Dakota navigate adopting a baby, but his hatred of being 'the responsible guy' presents readers with an overwhelming disconnect. Attractive, sympathetic leads and smooth writing are no match for the hero's single-minded selfishness, which limits his appeal at a late, critical juncture. (Aug.)"

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 (I lucked into an advance copy), 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!
