Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
4 Worthy Stars

This review and all reviews for this series are going to be short, and to the point since there are 19 books in this series. Unless there is one that I love so much or hate so much that I just have to rant or rave. Chasing Perfect was a sweet start to the Fool's Gold Series. I have heard such good things about Susan Mallery that I had to try her books, and I can say I wasn't disappointed. This was a very cute story. Lower on the angst, this was more of a chill read. I loved the the

Recommends it for: Fans of the author; fans of small town life contemporaries
I liked this one but I didn't love it. I was hoping for something along the lines of Mallery's Buchanans or Lone Star Sisters, but this one fell a little short of that for me. It could be because it was the first book in the series, and there was a lot of setting up to do (the small town of Fool's Gold and its lack of male population; the huge amount of characters she introduced) or maybe it was the plot which wasn't all that compelling-- world class cyclist (Josh) tries to get over his fears of ...more

Recommends it for: fans of nice heroes
Welcome to Fool’s Gold, the town where men don’t stay… except, of course, the incredibly gorgeous and wealthy ones who are going to marry the heroines of this series.

City planner Charity is hired to bring more men to Fool’s Gold. Though considering her past history with terrible boyfriends, perhaps she wasn’t the best choice. Certainly she doesn’t trust her attraction to local hero Josh--a famous sports figure could never be interested in an ordinary woman like her, right?

I can honestly say that this was the hardest book to review for me so far. Don't get me wrong the book was fabulous in my opinion, but i had a hard time doing a review where i didn't spoil it for anyone. I was so happy with everything that i just wanted to gush about everything, so i put the review on hiatus. It has been quite some time since i enjoyed a book so much i couldn't stop thinking about the characters almost 2 months after i finished reading it. With the amount of books i have read be ...more

Chasing Perfect

Susan Mallery

CHASING PERFECT is the first book in the Fools Gold series. There are currently thirty one books in this series and I have been wanting to read it since it came out years ago. I'm so excited to finally read it. CHASING PERFECT is a very sweet beginning to this series and lived up to everything my reader friends were saying about it. I was instantly hooked on the story and read it in one day. It is the story of Charity Jones a city planner who is looking to put down ro

Really a 4.5 star read for me! Just awesome!

Susan Mallery delivers a small town romance story that will leave readers anticipating the next book in the series. A combination of whit, charm and steam provides a delightful and entertaining read.
Chasing Perfect is about Charity Jones, who is a young, vibrant go-getter. Having spent the majority of her life taking care of herself and moving around, she’s determined to find a place that is quiet and peaceful so that she can settle down. Her whole li

I’ve previously red some of the later books in the Fool’s Gold series but going back to the beginning to see how it all started has been absolutely unforgettable. This was a brilliant introduction to Fool’s Gold. Readers get to know the town alongside its newest resident. Mallery’s easy going yet absolutely captivating writing style melds with her unique yet realistic romance for a seamless whole. At the same time, plot twists abound, keeping you on your toes. I love the allusion to the next boo ...more
No me convenció que ella cayera tan rápidamente hechizada por Josh. ¡Ni siquiera se plantea cómo sabía lo de la reunión, las tierras, etc.! Simplemente sale de allí advirtiéndose a sí misma que es demasiado guapo para ella, que no quiere ser como su madre, etc. pero vi poca resistencia real :\\ (view spoiler) ...more

I must confess, I read up until a certain point and then sort of just skipped to the end. Well not "sort of", because that's exactly what I did.

First things first, I want to say that it got off to a HILARIOUS start. For your pleasure, I took down some of the lines that made me snort tea out my nose (attractively, of course):
- "When she made the mistake of meeting his hazel-green eyes, she
could have sworn she heard the theme from Gone with the Wind playing softly in the background."
