Short & Sweet Review: Two of a Kind by Susan Mallery

Title: Two of a Kind   
Author: Susan Mallery    
Series: Fool's Gold, #11     
Published: June 2013, Harlequin  
Format: E-book, 246 pages    
Source: Personal copy  

New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery welcomes readers back to Fool's Gold, where a one-time fling could become the real thing...

Felicia Swift never dreamed she'd hear a deep, sexy voice from her past in tiny Fool's Gold, California. The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away...on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool's Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that.

Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm's length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men...and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her.

As these two misfits discover that passion isn't the only thing they have in common, they just might figure out that two of a kind should never be split apart.

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts: It's no surprise that I love this series and have really enjoyed all the books so far. I love that the characters are fresh and real and their stories, while always ending with a HEA, all have some bumps in the road. What I loved about this particular book is Felicia's character. She is a breath of fresh air in that she is so unique and original to the characters we've already met and come to love. She's that girl with all the smarts but very little real world experience/common sense. She's just downright quirky and I loved it. She's very literal and just says what's on her mind - which provides for some comical situations!

I enjoyed Felicia and Gideon's romance - it was unique and heartwarming. We also meet some new people and I am really looking forward to reading their stories. How Susan Mallery does it book after book, I don't know, but I feel as if the books just keep getting better and better!

  1. This is super long series! I've read one of the author's book but not of this series. I like her writing so I'm going to give this series a try. Thanks for sharing your review!


  2. I agree, the books keep getting better! I'm a bit behind you in the series... well a lot behind you but I'm hoping to catch up by the end of the year. They're so much fun to read I know it won't be a problem.
