The Sexiest Man Alive falls for The Ugly Duckling

Charlie Dixon never felt like a pretty woman. Her mother was a famous ballerina, and Charlie was big like her dad. She always knew that she was a disappointment to her mom, who wanted her to be a girlie girl. Overall, Charlie is happy with herself. She's tall and fit. Strong, which she needs to be to do her job as a firefighter.

There's just one problem... she was date-raped in college, and since then, she hasn't been able to be with a man. She freezes when they kiss her. She knows that's not healthy, and she needs help. She's sick of feeling afraid.

Enter Clay Stryker, maybe the sexiest man in the world... but Charlie is drawn to him because he is genuinely kind and decent, with a heart that's even more attractive than the rest of him.

Although ALL SUMMER LONG deals with some serious topics, it's not at all depressing. To the contrary - I laughed from beginning to end. It was touching and emotional and heartwarming, with a happy ending that made my heart sing. Loved it! My favorite Fool's Gold book so far!

If you haven't been reading all of the Fools Gold Books you have really missed some great people and some super love stories. To be fully appreciated you need to read these books starting with Book 1... Charley is the "ugly duckling" daughter of a famous ballerina who has found herself in Fools Gold where she is a paid fireman... She has good friends and is much respected... Clay Stryker is a famous underwear model who comes to town and appreciates Charlie (real name Chantel) for who she is and because she sees him as something other than a nice "butt"... Their story is very real and you will love them as individuals and as a couple. Ms. Mallery tells a great story and this is one of her really good ones... All will enjoy.

    I'm a sucker for "ugly duckling" tales and All Summer

    I'm a sucker for "ugly duckling" tales and All Summer Long didn't disappoint on delivering a sensuous and very romantic story. Charlie is a likable heroine and Clay the kind of man we're all looking for. My only reservation with the novel is the stock presentation of the plot; it was just too slick and predictable. So while I liked the characters I think their story deserved to be told with a bit more originality and daring. With this said I do feel that newbies to Romance will find All Summer Long an eloquent read.

    Review: All Summer Long by Susan Mallery
    3 STARS
    It was nice to go back to Fool's Gold and visit old friends and meet new ones.
    Charlie in collage was raped and no one believed her, even her mom. So Charlie has a hard time even being close to a guy. She wants a family or at least children and does not want to pass on her fear of guys.
    Clay wants to be close to his family and get them involved in a business plan for a haycation. Clay has made lots of money with his butt modeling and movie double work. Clay has even graduated collage but did not tell his family. He has bought 200 acres by his family's property. He wants to be part of a small town again. Even volunteer as a fireman.
    Charlie gets the idea to have Clay help her to be normal and be able to have sex again. Plus as a fireman trainee help him get a fair shot and help him with his dream.
    A lot of women stare at Clay and treat him like he is meat market. Clay was married once before and she died. He does not want serious relationship but he does not want one night stands. Clay takes Charlie serious and does look
    up information how to help. So Clay starts to seduce her slowly getting her to trust him and tease her . Thier is a lot of sex talk and foreplay in this
    story. Plus a lot of family drama Charlie's famous mother comes to town and now wants a relationship with her.
    May mother of Clay,Rafe and Shane finally talks about her daughter and we get to meet her.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley.
