Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
5 Simon Catnip Stars

 photo 11848596_zpsq2zy51w8.gif

“A handsome, scarred stranger who heals children and can’t be touched emotionally,” Dakota said lightly. “He’s like catnip.”

Perfection! OMG I love Simon so fuckin' much. Now that is a hero. God I wanna just throw him down and rub all over him. Scarred, damaged, angry and hurting. I just wanted to kiss all his boo boos better. To fix him, make him happy. This book was everything I wanted. I loved Montana. She was sweet, funny, and totally accepting of Simon and his burn scars

The second of the Hendrix triplets, Montana, who thinks of herself as the not-so-successful one, finds true love in this lovely follow up to last month's Only Mine. Finally coming into her own, career-wise anyway, as a service-dog trainer, Montana's first encounter with surgeon Simon Bradly is less than ideal. An over-eager dog named Fluffy runs wild and ends up in Dr. Bradley's burn ward, with a frantic Montana rushing in after her. After giving her a dressing down a Marine drill sergeant would ...more

Montana Hendrix has finally found her dream job - working with therapy dogs. Working with them is everything she ever wanted, so when she looses control of one of the dogs, and the said dog runs into a hospital wreaking havoc, she doesn't need Dr. Simon Bradley yelling at her to feel bad.

Simon has a good reason to be furious - a dog in a burn unit where a lot of patients can't be exposed to germs is bad. Granted, it was an accident, but still, the irresponsibility of it puts him on edge. If onl

This is the fifth book in this series (I think) but I've only read four of them. I'm going to complain in general because all of the books are really similar. I hate how these end as soon as the I love you's are declared. Like life is all happily ever after as soon as it's said. Silly. In more than one book of this series, the heroine has gotten pregnant "accidentally" and then had to of course decide to raise the child on her own, absolving the father of all responsibility because they don't wa ...more

Susan Mallery is a genius. A miracle. An Author Goddess. I love her. And I loved this book. Ever since I learned the premise of this book, I was excited to read about Montana and Simon. And they did not disappoint at all. In fact, they were better than I hoped. The plot was pretty fantastic, too, and I wasn't remotely bored or disinterested at any point in the novel.


With each book I read about the triplets, I am amazed by how different they are. The previous book of the series was about Dakota,

It was a cute enough book.
I can not seem to make myself say that I did not like it.
But the truth is this: Everyone was so sweet! I am having a sugar rush just looking at the page featuring this book on the site.
The heroine was so nice I started imagining her as the fifties super nice wife next door.

3/5 stars. Oh my!

There is a lot I liked about this book. I liked the hero and his dilemma. I liked the supporting characters and I liked the involvement of the burn unit and Kalinda.

But I disliked a whole lot too - allow me to rant for a moment. I started to get annoyed with the way that Mallery introduces characters from past books. We get an entire synopsis of their own book. It starts to get eye-roll-worthy-annoying. I also found that this happened in relation to Montana. Everyone kept saying

I have to say the second group of 3, "The Only's", I have enjoyed much more than "The Perfect's". Not sure if because of the triplet's personalities or what, but I read them easily in one day. The hero Simon did take awhile to grow on me, but I LOVED him in the end. My only wish in both this book and book 4 is that when the hero hurts the heroine, which happened several times in both books, I wanted the hero to run back to the heroine and ask for forgiveness, not let 1 to 2 weeks pass before the ...more

And this is why I continue with the series, even after two in a row that I kind of hated. Or, at least, this is what I had hoped for. I find Mallery's characters really engaging when they aren't being selfish about children.

Montana really is all that and a bag of chips. I loved everything about her, from her courage, to her strength, to her caring about her family and friends, and I even found her insecurities engaging (probably because she was able to acknowledge them and she was working so har

I'm in love with Fool's Gold and the people who live there. It feels so comfortable and casual each time I read another book in the series--like I'm going to a familiar vacation spot or something. I'm enjoying this trilogy within the series, each following one of the triplets. These women are warm and funny and full of life, each with their own quirks and worries. Can't wait to read the next story in the series.

WOW! Susan Mallery has definatly done it again with this one. One of my fav. things about SM's books is that there is no warm up period. There is no just keep reading, it gets better, it's just good from the start! And Only Yours followed that same pattern. I mean I was in love with Simon by Chapter two for goodness sakes!lol And I have a feeling there will be a lot of us readers that fall in love with Simon and his tortured past, his intensity, and his need to heal anyone who might be suffering ...more

I badly need a reviewing break, but after writing about all the books in this series I wasn’t that crazy about, it seems only fair to say at least a few words about the one I really did like. It was so good to see some real heat and passion in this story, and the balance between “novel” elements and “romance” elements was just right. I liked that the story had other things going on in it to support the romance: both Montana and Simon have meaningful, important careers that were interesting to re ...more

Another score for Susan Mallery and her Fool's Gold Series. Only Yours, the follow up to Only Mine, which will be out in stores at the end of the month, is a hit! Montana Hendrix, therapy dog trainer and one of the famous Hendrix triplets, sets her sights on the new burn specialist, Dr. Simon Bradley. Simon, who is as her sisters say "A sexy, scarred loner, can't stop himself from the overwhelming passion he feels when he sets his eyes on Montana, but h

Why read: Love the Fool's Gold series.

What impressed me: After reading both Ethan and Dakota's stories, readers will really feel as if they personally know the Hendrix family. This makes us immediately much more invested in how Montana's relationship works out. Now that she's finding her place in the world, you root for her and Simon the moment you meet him (as abrasive as he is). Simon is really the star of the novel. His complete emotional detachment is reminiscent of Raoul's romance, but it's

I've enjoyed this series up to this point, but I think this book is probably my favorite of the series so far. I loved just about everything about this installment of the “Fool's Gold” series. It had me hooked in right from the start and I read it in less than a day. Didn't want to put it down.

Series Note:
Fifth full length book in the “Fool's Gold” series about a small California town where women outnumber men. I wouldn't say it's necessary to read the previous books before this one, but I think

After reading Only Mine all I wanted was to get the next book so I could plunge right back in Fool's Gold. Only Yours focuses this time on Montana's story. I can already tell you it was a cute and funny story! Not that I doubted it would be anything but. *wink*

Montana has a job she loves, training dogs so they would help people. I have to say I envied her job. Who wouldn't like training puppies into being serviceable dogs! I love how Susan Ma

This is the second of the Hendrix triplet's stories and the fifth of the Fool's Gold series. Of this series, I've only read Only Mine, book four. However, I'm a huge fan of Susan Mallery's so when I say this book on NetGalley. I had to grab it.

Believable characters are important, especially so in romances. You already know the general plot and how it will turn out, right? I once refused to finish reading a book because it the characters were entirely unbelievable (15th century Scottish warrior telling the heroine to take a hot bath and relax didn't ring true). Susan Mallery's "Only Yours" is at the opposite end of that spectrum. Her characters are fully realized and completely believable.

I enjoyed this addition to the Fools Gold story line. The story was well written. The plot made sense and moved along with no slow spots.

I enjoyed the hero. I liked the way he was so socially inept. He was an interesting mixture of self assurance as a surgeon and his belief that he deserved or could inspire love.

The heroine was a nice girl. I did feel like the set up of having her be a person who messes up all the time was just given a nod and then dropped. She was however pretty grown up in her

Loved it! How you could not love a book that opened up with a scene with such an adorable dog? I've read a lot of the more recent books so I had already met Montana and Simon so it was nice to go back and read their story at last. Simon is so different from in the more recent books that it was amazing to see how uptight he used to be. Talk about love changing a man. His story broke my heart and at times I was near tears watching him with his burn patient.

Finally, the town is becoming real, the characters have issues, and seek more realistic ways to deal with them. I'm glad I endured to get here! I'm not sure about all the wonders of rescue dogs, and their ever-present place in current romances, but I'll let it be. I know animals can work wonders, but I also know highly asthmatic children can not even walk down the pet aisle in a grocery store, without causing difficulty with their breathing, so I remain torn.

Susan Mallery continues to write stories that are compelling, fun, humorous, and full of love, heart and soul. The characters are engaging and compassionate, the dialogue is believable, and the love is endearing. In my humble opinion, Ms. Mallery has not only hit another home run with Only Yours, but she’s also done an excellent job of showing how quickly one’s life can be turned upside down by a single incident.

As always Mallery writes a wonderful book. You just can't help yourself getting lost within the pages oh her stories. This book was 378 pages and it wasn't enough. Something I don't often say. I wanted more of Simon and Montana. Watching Simon become the person he was deep inside made me want to cry. I'm sure if he hadn't met Montana that would never had happened. This is why I love reading romance. Don't walk, RUN to the store and pick up Susan Mallery's books.

Knowing she was a service dog trainer I thought this story was going to go a different way but was very happy that nothing really bad happened to any of the dogs.

Montana. Montana. Montana. How I adore you. And your story. And Dr Simon. And the townspeople. And ugh. I think though, it had to choose, my favorite characters would probably be CeCe the dog and the 12yr oolds Reese and Kalinda (their friendship just melted my heart). And this book has really left me hungering to read Nevada's story. I need to find out what is going on with her mom and Max!
