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
A two hankie, low level love story between a small town girl and a tortured hero. Simon is instantly attracted to the heroine who is way too mature, adult and understanding to be in a romance novel.When he pushes her away because he can't handle his feelings, yeah yeah I know, her spine stiffens, she cries then does NOT go out of her way to run into him again, talk bad about him to her sisters, have a revenge fling. It's almost unnatural.

More drama from the H's burn patients than anything.

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

Only Yours

Susan Mallery

ONLY YOURS is the fifth book in the Fools Gold series and I can't believe I waited so long to read this collection of funny and romantic stories. There are forty three books in this series and I'm hoping to get a huge batch of them read this year. ONLY YOURS is also the second book in the Fools Gold Romance trilogy that covers the love story of the three Hendrix sisters who also happen to be triplets. ONLY YOURS is Montana's story.

Montana is kooky but oh so lovable that yo
What a sweet story. And finally a main character who didn't get pregnant....
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,

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 can not get past dialogue like this:

- “At the risk of having you break out in hysterical laughter, are you saying you were overcome by passion and had to kiss me?”
She braced herself for mockery. Instead Simon nodded.
“I can’t explain it,” he admitted. “It’s one of those chemical things.” He looked away. “I don’t usually have this kind of reaction to a woman.”
She wanted to bask in the moment.

- “Why don’t you usually feel this way about a woman? Please tell me you’re not gay?”

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
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

Solo Para Ti es el quinto libro de la saga Fools Gold escrita por la autora Susan Mallery y narra la historia de amor entre Montana ( una de las trillizas ) y Simon.
Con cada libro que leo de esta serie me alegro un poco mas de haberle dado una oportunidad a estas lecturas, son cada vez mejores.
En esta ocasion la historia de Simon y Montana fue hermosa, tierna y rapida de leer ( al igual que todas las de esta saga ), no se porque razon pense que los libros de las trillizas serian un poco mas floj
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

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
A nice quick beauty-and-the-beast-themed read with adorable dogs and cute kids. Its part of a series but I read it as standalone and didn't feel like I missed anything. The heroine was a rational down-to-earth woman who felt like she could be someone I knew. She did everything naturally and I'm glad she didn't martyr herself too much- it just seemed like a normal reaction any woman would have when you have to deal with self-confidence issues (ie her hangups about her previous relationships).

I thought Susan Mallery can't get any better....Ooops, was I wrong :)

I'm kinda used to insta-love in her books but what I truly love about her books is that the progress of the story take just the right amount of time. Simon had some personal problems, he was insecure and was used to leave before he gets too attached. But we all know that once you start catching feeling for someone in Fool's Gold, you're doomed, so you still get your HEA in this book ;)

5 heartwarming, Fool's Gold stars.

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.

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

First half was rather blase but I liked
the ending. She didn’t try to force him to change (one of my least favorite tropes). She had self-respect and dignity, looked after herself, and let him figure out his shit.

It was a quick fluffy read. A good way to de-stress over the weekend. Like a lot of quick fluffy reads, the characters wrapped up their issues pretty quickly. I'm not complaining much. That means less noble/stupid decisions from the leads. Haha My favorite aspect of a Susan Mallery plot is the nice town and sense of community all her stories have. It's nice knowing your lead characters have good friends.

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
