Review + Giveaway ~ Two of a Kind (Fool's Gold, #11) by Susan Mallery

New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery welcomes readers back to Fool's Gold, where a one-time fling could become the real thing...

Felicia Swift never dreamed she'd hear a deep, sexy voice from her past in tiny Fool's Gold, California. The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away...on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool's Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that.

Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm's length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men...and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her.

As these two misfits discover that passion isn't the only thing they have in common, they just might figure out that two of a kind should never be split apart.
I am a long-time fan of Susan Mallery’s writing. The first time I experienced her writing was with her contemporary series, Blackberry Island. The Fool’s Gold series captured and held my attention since the very beginning, Chasing Prefect. If you enjoy contemporary romances, then I recommend this author.

I was worried that it would be hard to read an entire book filled with Felicia’s mechanical dialogue. Instead Felicia’s social awkwardness led to humorous and entertaining moments, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Gideon is a tormented soul in need of peace. His character has been through an unimaginable trauma that has left him without the ability feel real emotion. Yet he is drawn toward the whimsical Felicia and is unable to resist the chemistry between them. The author matches seeming unusual individuals and creates astounding HEAs. Another great novel by this author…Highly recommended this series/book.
