Only Mine by Susan Mallery

Review of Only Mine by Susan Mallery

To Be Released: July 26, 2011

5 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: “Her town’s lack of men may make headlines, but it isn’t news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool’s Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers—the perfect contestants—off the show. Despite Dakota’s better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn’t dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.”

Only Mine by Susan Mallery is a wonderful story about finding identity and a place to call home in the one you were meant to be with. As readers we get to see more Fool’s Gold characters shine through in this series and become more invested in their lives as this story focuses on Dakota Hendrix (one of the triplets) and how she finds her path in life. We also get to meet a newcomer in town named Finn and let me just say he is very much one of those fictional guy characters every girl wishes she could marry in real life. As has become customary I will tell you all the things I loved about this book so I don’t give anything away.

Things I Love About Only Mine by Susan Mallery

Getting to see Dakota not as a triplet, but an individual

Finn and Dakota’s first meeting

Finn’s passion for being responsible to his family

The twins and how different they are

The Hendrix family dynamic

Fool’s Gold

Denise going on a date then talking about it with her daughters

Hannah (so adorable)

Dakota’s miracle

Finn’s stubbornness

Dakota and Finn’s sense of humor

Finn being cornered at the market

Dakota finally putting herself in the game and fighting

And of course the ending because that was just heart stopping

As most of you know, I am a huge Susan Mallery fan and I just adore her Fool’s Gold Series. I gave Only Mine by Susan Mallery 5 smirks because I was invested in the outcome for all the characters. Only Mine draws readers in with true emotion and tons of heart that it is hard not to be affected by this story. In my opinion it is a must read and a must own.
