Summer Nights by Susan Mallery

Review of Summer Nights by Susan Mallery

Published: June 19, 2012

6 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: "Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he’s determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher’s wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill.

Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can’t understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her with a special event for the next Fool’s Gold festival. And maybe while he’s at it, she can convince him to teach her a few things about kissing on hot summer nights, too—some lessons, a girl shouldn’t learn from reading a book!"

What can I say about this installment of Fool's Gold by Susan Mallery?  There is really nothing left to say since every book I have been able to get my hands on by Susan Mallery has been nothing short of fabulous and addictive.  I do have to say this though, so far Shane is my favorite Stryker brother.  He has this air of kindness about him wrapped in a sexy cowboy bod, who wouldn't favor him?  Annabelle is a fantastically funny character who marches to the beat of her own drum, which is entertaining and spontaneous.  Shane and Annabelle at first don't really seem to go together, he's too serious, she's in her own world, but they really bring each other out and make one another the best people they can be.  Summer Nights by Susan Mallery is a story about giving up the past in order to move on with your future.  I really love how Annabelle and Shane have both came from a bad place in their lives and while they each came away with a different lesson, eventually they realize how important to live in the now is as oppose to living in the past.  I give Summer Nights by Susan Mallery 6 smirks because I'm helplessly addicted to Fool's Gold, the characters, and the stories that continue to grow there.
