Review: Only Mine by Susan Mallery

Mass Market Paperback
Expected publication: July 26th 2011

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.

Only Mine really touched close to home for me. I love Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series and with every book that is released, it just gets better and better. You can easily put yourself in her characters shoes and get lost inside of the world she has created. Susan Mallery to me is one of my all time favorite Romance Writers.

Only Mine was a little different than the first three books. Mallery actually fit in a sub-plot, and what a sweet and romantic sub-plot it was. I loved every minute of Only Mine and I even shed a tear or two. It was so easy for me to relate to the main character Dakota. Some of the things Dakota was going through made me cry because I experienced something similar. 

I also loved the relationship between Finn and Dakota. Finn had a little bad attitude and Dakota was there to balance him out. Not only were they perfect for each other, but it was almost like they had been best friends since forever. The chemistry between the two was undeniable. Finn was everything a man should be. He was there for Dakota through hard times and really had no reason to be. I just loved it!

I'll say it again, if you have not read a book by Susan Mallery, go pick one up! It only takes one and I promise you will find yourself picking up every book she has ever written. Susan Mallery's books are entertaining, fast reads and will leave your stomach full of butterflies. You will love them! 

4 out of 5 Stars!
