"Summer Days" [Fool’s Gold Series, Book 7] by Susan Mallery

My Book Summary : Heidi hasn't been living in Fool's Gold that long but for someone who has grown up as being a part of a carnival being able to settle down in Fool's Gold with her grandfather and take care of her goats is a piece of heaven she never knew before. However, the security she has made for herself is about to be destroyed after her grandfather scams Rafe's mother into thinking she's buying Heidi's ranch. In the end, while Heidi, Rafe, Glen (Heidi's grandfather), and May (Rafe's mother) wait to see what the judge decides to do about their legal situation, May and Rafe move onto the ranch with Heidi and Glen. Throughout the time that they try living together, they learn about each other’s pasts and presents while sharing what they hope for the future. They all grow closer only with the knowledge that soon they'll find out what the judge has planned soon, which means only one of them can win between them especially since Rafe doesn't seem to know the meaning of compromise. However, what will happen after Heidi and Rafe's feelings involved? Will they be able to reconcile their difference and problems? Or will everything implode between them, making it so the town will have to take sides?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This novel is all about the meaning of love and what the main characters willing to give up or do to make sure everything works out for the best. I loved Rafe and his family!! I can't wait to see where they will go from here. Plus, ever since reading more about Heidi, Charlie, & Annabelle in "Only His" I was so happy to read about them again in this book!!

Rafe is a man who had to grow up quickly when he was a kid after his father past away, and now he has based his life around making sure everyone he loves is protected. Heidi has built a life for herself that she loves and is willing to do just about anything to protect it and her grandfather. Together they make a wonderful couple, if they can only get over the complication that Glen (Heidi's grandfather) put them in. It's very sweet how they are able to turn their situation around and be there for each other!

I recommend this novel to anyone who is a fan of the Fool's Gold series!!! Also, this is the perfect contemporary romance to put you in a good mood!

Book Teaser(s) :
Annabelle and Charlie exchanged a look.
"That's quite a list," Annabelle said.
"Most of it was about Rafe and she's drinking more than usual," Charlie added. "You know what that means."
"Trouble." Annabelle shook her head. "Big trouble."
"Man trouble."
"There's no man trouble," Heidi announced. "None. Zero. Zip. I'm not attracted to Rafe."
"But you've kissed him," Annabelle said smoothly.
"Yes, but it was---" Heidi slapped her hand over her mouth. She wasn't going to mention the kiss. She dropped her arm to her side. "It's not what you think."
"Was there tongue?" Charlie asked.
Prepared now, Heidi pressed her lips together and didn't speak.
"That's a yes," Annabelle said with a sigh. "I miss tongue. Or any kind of kissing. I miss sex and men and orgasms." She sighed again. "I'm sorry. What was the question?"
"Tongue is exactly what I think," Charlie said. ~ within Chapter 7

  3. Susan's Fool's Gold series is a great mix of small town life that makes you feel at home and characters we can all relate to. In SUMMER DAYS, Susan weaves a tale of breath holding romance. Can't wait for the next two books.

  6. Susan Mallery delivers again in the next Fool's Gold Series! Summer Days is a great summer read and should be on your must read list for the summer. Susan writes wonderful books, but the Fool's Gold series has you always looking forward to the next book. I enjoyed Rafe, his family and can't wait to meet his siblings in the books to come.

  7. I just adored this book and of course, the town of Fool's Gold.

  8. I love this book!! Rafe & Heidi has a great chemistry together even though they are both stubborn. I feel so bad for Heidi who finally has a home of her own. How does that feel to have someone like Rafe threaten her home? Must read book!! Keep on Reading!! I can not wait for the other 2 to come out. A great summer is ahead of us!

  9. That's my bracelet! :D Susan’s Fool’s Gold series is my absolute favorite. Not only do you wish the town and characters were real, you feel like it all is. Susan goes above and beyond other authors by giving us updates between the stories and after the HEA through her website I really enjoyed Rafe and Heidi’s story. Their love bloomed gradually and they were both really real characters. I look forward to reading more about our favorite fictional town this summer :D

  10. LOL. I love the book teaser that you chose. It's a perfect example of Susan's witty dialogue. Great review! I loved Summer Days. I look forward to the next Stryker book!

  11. SUMMER DAYS is the perfect beach read. It’s funny, romantic, sexy, and it’s light both in tone and in actual weight – you can toss the paperback into your beach bag and go. It should be on everyone's must read list!

  12. Great review! Summer Days was such a fun story. Made me LOL several times. I loved Heidi and Rafe!
