This series has great potential, but I found the male lead in this story extremely distasteful, so much so that I wondered why the female lead was still even attracted to him. The female lead, secondary characters and the general story were all enjoyable, but this is the first time I've ever been repelled by the male lead in a romance novel.
The first book in the series, Chasing Perfect, I hated and almost didn't get this one because it was so bad. However, I like Susan Mallery so I used my credit. This story is okay for a light romance but it is hard to like Ethan because he is so mean to Liz. I know the author tries to give his point of view but it doesn't help.
It could also be the narrator she is very bad, high pitch voices that is like nails on a chalkboard...ugh!
I would have given this 3 stars but because of the narrator I can only give it 2. I've got a list of narrators I don't like and make sure I don't purchase books by them and she is now on it...yes, that bad.
I am glad that I took the chance a purchased the second book in this series since the first book was just kind of ok. I love Susan Mallory books because even though I may not like some of the people in them those same people pull your emotional in in all different directions. So in this book Ethan is the perfect example of an selfish, self absorbed, take no responsibility of his actions, seeing only his side, jerk. And even though Liz made mistakes and messed up she is willing to take responsibility for her part and tries to make things right but Ethan takes her on a emotional roll a coaster and I wanted to just reach through my head phones and slap him. This book will make you laugh and cry and will pull you just a little further into the world of Fools Gold.
I've become a sucker for Audible. I love audiobooks, to the point of addiction. Especially a good romance audiobook... :)
The first book is funny and I liked it a lot. But this book shows the downside to Fools Gold. it's not all rainbows and hearts.
I really liked the tone and plot of this story. I don't like contemp romance that much, but this series is excellent!
Book 2 was the first of the Fools Gold series that I listened to. It was actually with book 2 that I became hooked on the Fool Gold series by Susan Mallery. Although it is a series, you can start with any book in the series and not be confused or feel something was left out. Yet, having listened to the whole series, each book just adds more. Liz and Ethan's story was so touching. It made me become more invested in learning more about all the characters in Fools Gold.
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.
Yes, I have recommended and now she has started the series. The visuals and the history behind the story of the characters draws you in.
Well since this book came first I don't know but after u have read all of the series books it is like Summer Brides (NOVELLA) and Only His. Thyself have a similar story having an issue with someone from there past and making things right.
When Ethan sees Liz for the first time after so long.
Yes, when Ethan didn't give up and recognizes he contributed to the problem. That he is bnot just the victim.
Read Summer Brides after this one. Unfortunately it isn't an audiobook. You wont regret it though.
I love audio books and this was really a good listen, nver was bores and the story kept me til the end. I have read many of her books they are great.
I have purchased three books from this author. I have made it through 1 and 1/14 of the the three stories.
Why, as a woman would you write such demeaning stories? The women take unbelievable amounts of crap and still stand by the losers. I hope you don't teach your daughters this hooey.
Woman need to treat men as they treat woman. If you have a loser date, don't take his disrespectful behavior. Move on, there are so many great men out there. Get what you give. As an author I am embarrassed to call you a woman.
I would not recommend this book or the others to anyone.
I enjoyed this book which was not just a good read but memorable.
I find myself looking for more books in the series.
