Publisher's Summary

Former underwear model turned entrepreneur Clay Stryker has loved, tragically lost, and vowed that he’ll never risk his heart again. After making his fortune, the youngest of the rugged Stryker brothers returns to Fool's Gold, California, to put down roots on a ranch of his own. But he’s frustrated to discover that even in his hometown, people see him only for his world-famous… assets.

Firefighter Chantal (Charlie) Dixon grew up an ugly duckling beside her delicately beautiful mother, a feeling reinforced long ago by a man who left soul-deep scars. Now she has good friends, a solid job and the itch to start a family — yet she can’t move toward the future while she’s haunted by painful memories. Clay finds an unexpected ally, and unexpected temptation, in tomboyish Charlie, the only person who sees beyond his dazzling good looks to the real man beneath. But when Charlie comes to him with an indecent proposal, will they be able to overcome their pasts and find a love that lasts beyond one incredible summer?

    Story
    "Almost, but not quite - perfect"

    The biggest fault I could find is something that would spoil the story, so I won't say it.

    I loved reading about the trials and tribulations of a male model trying to live a regular life. Charlie's trauma was sad, but not overdone.

    I understand that Clay needed a back story of love lost, but there wasn't as much angst there as I expected, and for which I am truly thankful.

    Fool's Gold keeps drawing me back, even after nine entries in the series, which is amazing. Most authors lose their way by the time they hit book six. This one is a little short, probably because much of the other stories in town weren't rehashed much.

    Would I buy it again? Yes
    Will I read it again? Absolutely

    I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!

    Story
    "annoying narrator!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea


    What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?

    The narration was so bad and so distracting that I couldn't even focus on the story!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment...I usually like the author


    Any additional comments?

    I love about 99% of the audible books I get...this is the 1% awful

    I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.

    Story
    "Similar but Still Great!!"
    Would you listen to All Summer Long again? Why?

    Absolutely!! All the Fool's Gold books make you miss the characters. When you want to reconnect with them all you have to do is pick up the book and read it again. Or listen in this case.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All Summer Long?

    I don't think their was a moment. I think the idea that they were both running from the perceptions of themselves was memorable. Lessons learned while enjoying the story are the best kind to learn.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    I love Tanya Eby. She is my friend who tells me what's going on. I have read many books she has read and she always makes them enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is similar to Pia's story. There were a few parallel's but it was still an interesting story for Charlie.

    Story
    "Another Fools Gold hit!"
    What made the experience of listening to All Summer Long the most enjoyable?

    I like the fact that Tanya Eby has been the sole narrator for this series. The characters voices don't vary from book to book, which is a great comfort to this listener.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All Summer Long?

    I loved Charlie's vulnerability and strength. Clay was a true gentle man.


    What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Consistency!

    "Very good listen"

    I enjoyed this book so much. I enjoy romance stories that are more believable like this one is. It's no waste of money or credit. I'm looking forward to more in this series and from the set up of the existing characters one can see that there are more books to follow. Some to look forward to!

    "Amazingly Written!"

    Having dealt with this issue in my family, I was impressed with how respectfully, realisticly, and kindly Susan Mallery dealt with this subject matter. This is why I continue to buy her books. Great stories, intelligently written.
