Goldstone, Nevada: It's not your typical vacation getaway. Sheriff Tyler Braxton hightails it out of Cottonmouth to Goldstone for a little R&R, when his sister puts out a distress call. Suddenly, instead of vacationing, Brax is offering advice to the lovelorn! And to top it off, he has to start his own investigation on his sister's behalf: Is his brother-in-law having an affair with the local erotic author?
Simone Chandler has found her haven in Goldstone; she loves the forsaken town and its lovable but somewhat beleaguered residents. With a thriving Internet business penning made-to-order erotic fantasies, some of her friends in Goldstone just happen to be her clients, too. The problem: The hunky sheriff from out of town wonders if she's not only writing stories for his brother-in-law, but acting them out with him, too. Then murder comes to Goldstone, and Brax is suddenly hip-deep in small-town secrets, with sexy Simone Chandler at the head his suspect list. Is Simone the real thing, or, as with everything else in Goldstone, is she more like Fool's Gold?

Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
The last book was obsessed with butts, this one it is tally-whackers. It feels like a running gag in this series. Still I did not hate it!
I really liked Brax in the other book and hoped he would get a HEA. He is a bit mopier this time around than I remember him. I wish he had the same playful feel as he did in the other story. He started to get that way again midway through the book, especially with her mother.
I really like Simone, most of the time. She does have moments where she acts the doormat, but she really comes back strong in the end. I adore her attitude and sense of humor. Such a fun character!
The dynamic between Brax and Simone is witty and fun. I adore banter! The attraction is instant, not sure I believe the feeling yet. They have a solid start, but the I love you's are a bit quick.
Ms Skully crafts a great story with loveable characters. I am enchanted by he quirky small towns! She also has a way of making you love somebody and them killing them off. It really breaks your heart! It is a definite testament to her skill as a storyteller.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by June Wayne, who does a lovely job. I really enjoyed her pace and the energy she adds to the read. Her voices were distinct and consistent, I just wish she had hit a few of the accents harder. She is definitely a narrator I will look for again.
The smexy stuff was plenty hot!! It is an open bedroom door but not as detailed as an erotic romance. Still makes a gal blush plenty! I love all the euphemisms peppered throughout!
