Locked in an unexpected land dispute, Rafe Stryker is trapped in the one place he vowed never to return to – the Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. He made millions facing ruthless adversaries in the boardroom, but nothing could’ve prepared him to go head-to-head against stubborn, beautiful Heidi Simpson. No one is more surprised than Rafe to discover that he’s finding Heidi – and life as a cowboy – much more compelling than he wants to admit. For Heidi, the Castle Ranch is the home she’s always wanted. After a life on the road, the vivacious blonde has finally put down roots. She won’t give that up without a fight, not even for a man whose late-night kisses make her yearn to be a little less…wholesome. As the two turn from passionate adversaries to passionate, period, they’ll discover that summer love can last a lifetime.
Susan Mallery has never disappointed me, from the Chasing Perfect to Summer Days, she has always left me satisfied. Summer Days will take you on a journey from fraud to property lost and just finding the right one for you. She took Summer Days to a whole new level. In fact I feel this is Susan's sexiest novel, at least from the ones I've read. She definitely had me saying "Whoa, that's hot!" a few times.
In Summer Days, you meet some new characters. And I embraced them right along with Fool's Gold. They all brought something unique and special to the novel. From Grandpa Glen who still has swagger at seventy something years old to sweet May to obnoxious Rafe to the beloved Heidi and last but not least, Athena the most stubborn animal (goat) I've ever read in a novel. I think she may be the most unique character in Summer Days. LOL
What's the best way to get someone to leave your property and flee back home? By falling in love that's how. LOL. Sounds simple enough, huh? Well not for these character's because Susan takes them all through a chain of events that'll have them all taking their claws out, telling lies to giving into a sweet kissing sessions. Summer Days has a perfect mixture of stress, anger, frustration, desperation, determination and love. Susan shows you that love can happen anywhere at any time and any age. Summer Days will take you on a bumpy and rocky road that leads you straight home to that someone special you love. A 5/5 stars! Another must buy and a definite Good Choice for Reading!!
