Thrill Me (Fool's Gold Series #18) by Susan Mallery

Meet the Mitchell brothers of Fool's Gold, California—five gorgeous men who've left a trail of broken hearts in their wake… 

Maya Farlow learned the hard way to depend only on herself, so when she fell too deeply for the bad-boy charms of Del Mitchell, she did the only thing she could—she ran. Stunned, Del left Fool's Gold to make his name and fortune in extreme sports. 

Now ten years later, Maya's been hired to promote her hometown's new slogan, The Destination for Romance. The celebrity spokesman is none other than Del, the man she dumped but never forgot. Awkward! 

Although Del's not the type to hold a grudge, he's determined to avoid falling a second time for the woman who broke his heart. He's a daredevil, not an idiot. Trouble is, in all his adventures, he never found a rush as exhilarating as Maya's kiss. Maybe risking his heart will prove to be the biggest thrill of all…

Look for Best of My Love, the next title in Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.

A beautiful story in Susan Mallery style. I had difficulty putting the book down. It was great to revisit many of the characters from other Fool's Gold books. I'm looking forward to Madeline and Jonny Blaze's story. LA-TXN

I love every book in the Fools Gold series and this one doesn't dissapoint. We've all had the thought of what it would be like to meet up with "the" love from our younger years and Susan Mallery delivers the perfect story.

I usually love her books, but on one issue I have a problem. I am a beast cancer survivor and there is no way you can keep the surgery or treatment from your family. I had a lumpectomy and the surgery is quite extensive and you also have to check the lymph nodes to see if it has spread. She would have had two incisions, how would her husband miss them? I went though chemo and radiation and there is no way she could have kept this from her family. The rest of the book I really enjoyed I just couldn't get past the cancer part of the story.

I have loved my visits to Susan Mallery's quirky town of Fools Gold including this time around. I enjoy each visit meeting new people and catching up with the others. I mean who doesn't enjoy keeping up with Mayor Marsha not to mentionEddie & Gladys, I know I do! If this is your first time to Fools Gold I strongly urge you to read Ms. Mallery's other books! I am very glad to know there will be more stories! Thank you Susan Mallery.

Fantastic! I loved this story. I seem to love each book even more than the last. Of course Mayor Marsha works her magic to provide a reason for Maya to come home. But lessons learned as children are hard to overcome. This is a story of love, family and second chances. And who would of thought--that Eddie and Gladys would do something besides they're usual troublemaking, something wonderful. The stories about Fool's Gold and the people in it are so good. I'd recommend the series to anyone.

Love Fool's Gold and this did not disappoint but my heart longs for updates on the original characters.

Wonderful second chance romance. Maya and Del had been in love ten years earlier, but their relationship hadn't worked out. Both of them left Fool's Gold to pursue other dreams. Now, through the efforts of Mayor Marsha, they have been recruited to work on publicity videos for the town, forcing them to deal with their past. Maya had been raised by a mother who bounced from man to man. Her happiest time had been when her mom was married to Zane and Chase's dad (Kiss Me), giving Maya the most stable life she'd ever had. That was when she fell in love with Del, but the strength of her feelings and her fear of being like her mother, caused her to break things off with him and leave. When her current plans didn't work out she accepted the opportunity to come home to Fool's Gold and work with Mayor Marsha. She's stunned when she finds out Del will be working with her. She has never forgotten him and still feels guilty about the way she broke up with him. She hopes to have a chance to apologize to him. Del grew up as the oldest of five boys in his family. His father is a famous and very self-centered artist who had no use for anyone who wasn't following in his footsteps. When Maya broke up with him, Del left Fool's Gold and got involved in extreme sports, and later made a fortune with the production of sports equipment. He has come back to Fool's Gold after selling his company to celebrate his father's birthday and to decide what is next for him. Working with Maya seems to be a good fit. I loved the fact that they talked about their past early on and moved past it. Because they had been friends first way back then, they were able to move forward as friends again. There's also no shortage of the attraction either, but both are determined to resist that. Maya knows that Del isn't planning to stay in Fool's Gold past the end of summer, and she has no plans to leave. Falling for him again would be asking for trouble. Del feels the same way. He had trusted his heart to her once and he wasn't about to do it again. I loved seeing how well they were able to work together. Each of them had strengths that, when combined, made the work they were doing go wonderfully. Spending that much time together also gave them a chance to get to know each other again. Del is more confident and comfortable with himself, now that he has had distance from his father. That confidence comes through in his work with Maya, especially when he opens up to her about his dreams for the future. He also begins to picture Maya as part of that future, and though his heart is all for it, his head isn't so sure about believing it. In the previous book Maya had made peace with her stepbrother Zane, and with her other stepbrother Chase, finally has a family relationship she feels that she can depend on. She also realizes that her own dreams for her future have been changing, thanks to Del's influence. Of course, with the rekindling of their friendship, the attraction they feel for each other strengthens also. Eventually it becomes too much to resist, adding another layer to the feelings growing between them. I loved how thoughts of a future together kept creeping into each one's dreams and ached for their fears of confessing their feelings and taking a chance. There are signs that it could happen until family issues and secrets create a rift that may be too much to overcome. Maya has remained good friends with Del's mom over all these years, and it's to Maya that Elaine turns whe

The Fools Gold series is one of my favorties out there and this book just landed at the top spot for me. Del and Maya are just so loveable. I love how they build a friendship they lost years prior and it also blossoms into a romantic relationship even if they refuse to acknowledge it at first. They don't just jump back in where they left off. They start to get to know each other again. Truely amazing writing from a truely amazing author..

check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings The Mitchell brothers are the center of Fool's Gold and Del has returned to Fool's Gold for a quick trip to celebrate the father who wasn't really a father and while there he reconnects with a past flame from high school, but has the flame burned out or will the reconnect and end up together? There is a usual formula for romance books and this one followed it and I loved it! I loved the old love potential new fling situation and the will they/won't they part of the story. I also loved that there was a story that put a lot of focus on her work life and how for this character Maya still found joy and satisfaction from her work life.

I love the Fool's Gold series. This is a fun, easy read. I loved Maya and Del, I'm a sucker for second chance stories and enjoyed this one.

I am admitting up front that I am OBESSESED with Susan Mallery’s town of Fool’s Gold. The characters are relatable and fun. You would think 18 books in that it might be a bit stale but I am just as mesmerized by this story as I was the original. In Kiss Me (Fool’s Gold, #17), I was wondering how I would react to Maya as the main character since readers are told that she dumper the love of her life and never looked back. Thrill Me completely changed my mind about Maya and I loved her relationship with Del’s mother. I was surprised how fast Del seemed to forgive her and move on. I love Mayor Marsha and all of her schemes. I cannot wait for Marry Me at Christmas (Fool's Gold, #19).

Absolutely love the Fool's Gold series and this is a wonderful addition. I liked the new characters. I had trouble putting this one down. If you haven't read Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series, you need to start now. From the beginning.

The third installment of this group of stories is just as captivating as the others. Once you start to read a trilogy of Susan's you will not stop. I am collecting the books in the sets of three so I can read the first, second and third. This time I started when she came out with the first. Had to wait a little for the second and third as I read each one in a little over a day. Going back now to read other sets. You will fall in love with these characters. It's a promise.

Susan Mallery's Thrill Me takes us back to Fool's Gold, California for another romantic book. This is a second chance love. Maya and Del are our main characters who had a romantic relationship 10 years ago. Now they are back in town and must work on the same project. The storyline develops easily while making the characters and their emotions totally real to the reader. With this book Susan Mallery introduces the entire Mitchell family with Del and all his brothers. You can see how this will allow further stories involving these new characters. I recommend Thrill Me as a good romantic read.

Thrill Me is another wonderful story filling the lives of residents in Fools Gold. This is the story of Del and Maya. When they were younger they were engaged but Maya called it off because she was scared and so she lied to Del. They both left Fools Gold but have both returned and are now working on a project for Mayor Marsha. Although they have issues they learn to be friends which leads to love but again a lie may derail their relationship. This is a wonderful story.

Maya moved back to Fool's Gold after her career seemed to stagnate. She may not be looking forward to trying to manage Eddie and Gladys, but that might be easier than facing the one man she loved and ran from. Del is also back in Fool's Gold for the summer and he's not exactly thrilled to be working with Maya either. They seemingly find a way to be professional while working together and ease back into a friendship. The only problem is that they are attracted to each again and with the more time they are working together, the deeper they seemingly fall. Thrill Me is an entertaining and fun ride as Maya and Del learn that they just might get their second chance after all. Thrill Me is a great addition to the ever humorous Fool's Gold series and can be read as a standalone. Susan Mallery proves yet again that Fool's Gold is a place I would love to visit, at least to meet the infamous Mayor Marsha. 4.5 stars *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
