Review of Only His by Susan Mallery
Published: September 27, 2011
6 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “Wedding bells are ringing in Fool’s Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they’ve seen each other naked, but she’ll never forget the way he broke her heart.
Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada’s “business only” ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life. But when great business partners turn out to be so much more, every rule gets broken. Will either of them be willing to try again…or will their past get in the way?”
Out of this trilogy of books released this year about Fool’s Gold I think this one is my favorite. I found myself laughing almost the whole time and being teleported into Nevada’s and Tucker’s lives. I love all the Susan Mallery books I have ever read and this one is no different. Everything the main characters felt, I felt and was so absorbed in the story I literally didn’t get up from my chair until I was finished.
Things I Loved About Only His by Susan Mallery:
The first line of the book (hilarious)
Tucker because he’s Tucker
Nevada getting drunk in the middle of the day
Getting to see Nevada’s point of view
Nevada’s personality being completely different from Dakota and Montana’s
Tucker and his very bipolar view of Nevada
Nevada and Tucker’s very pure and simple connection
Cat and her gift to the town (died laughing)
Getting to see a different side of Denise (very momma bear style)
Nevada being scarred for life by Denise’s kitchen table
Tucker being an idiot and calling himself one
Tucker’s thoughts after the explosion (about Nevada and Cat)
Pizza, wine, and cupcakes
Nevada realizing what she wants does matter and accepting her feelings as true and pure
And Tucker sharing something very deep/romantic in front of Cat’s gift to the town
I give Only His by Susan Mallery 6 smirks because I LOVE a book that can make me laugh and be a part of the story. I waited so long to read this book and it was very karmic I was able to after my first week of classes; it was very relaxing/exciting. Only His by Susan Mallery is a book readers will read over and over again because the characters are funny and connection between Tucker and Nevada is such that readers will wish they had the same connection with someone else. Must own.
