Can first love turn into the real deal in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery? Isabel Beebe thinks she's cursed in the romance department Her teenage crush Ford Hendrix ignored all her letters Her husband left her for anotherman So Isabel has This is twelfth in a series and couples from the other books are nearly omnipresent as friends and neighbors And both protagonists are present in the previous books too You don't have to read these in order but it's probably better if you do MaybeIf you've read any of the series before then you know about what to expect I really liked Isabel and thought her being torn between staying and not was very well done I liked that she had a solid support in her friends and family and that she recognized and appreciated that strength And I liked her journey of discovery with intimacy even when I got tired of hearing about it in the early phases of the storyFord was a big meh though He's so very emotionally clueless in the way that several of the previous heroes have been and I just don't find it engaging The big dumb man who doesn't understand what love really is is tiresome and the trope of having some outsider point out duh dummy that's what love is works for a naïf with zero experience of the world or completely unconnected to others Not so much with a guy in his thirties with plenty of emotional support and loving family nearby Still I bought his engagement with Isabel and could see how much he cared about her and loved that he wasn't fighting the attachment so much as he was just clueless about what it meantI did rather love the secondary love story It didn't have enough heft or conflict for a full out book of its own but it fit very well into the cracks of this story And because both secondary characters were proximate to our main couple it was a natural fitSo this ends up a 3½ story on the basis of Isabel being outstanding and Ford not being a complete idiot The secondary romance and some good banter pushes this up to four starsA note about Steamy There are three or four explicit sex scenes one of them with the secondary couple So this is the middle of my steam tolerance but on the higher side of that range As I said above I liked Isabel learning about intimacy even though some of it strained credulity than a little Ford's caring really came to the fore there and I love that aspect of his character

Can Ford overcome his own demons and explore his true feelings for Isabel? This is I think the 13th book in this series but the first one that I have read It could defintely be read as a stand alone I knew that I was missing some background about the other characters but I was still able to fully enjoy this story about Ford and IsabelI really enjoyed this book It was a sweet nice easy love story Not much angst not a lot of drama Yes it was a bit formulaic and predictable but if you go into the book expecting that you won't be disappointed One issue that I have and it's with a lot of books in this genre is that the ending seemed a bit rushed Maybe it's just me probably isOverall I really enjoyed this book and I would definitely check out books by this author This book was provided through the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
