REVIEW: Thrill Me by Susan Mallery

Title: Thrill Me
Author: Susan Mallery
Series: Fool's Gold #18
Publication: July 28th, 2015 HQN Books

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

I received a copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.

Secrets could be your worst enemy.
Maya Farlow and Del Mitchell have been in love. Del wanted to marry her. Beut she was too scared and she decided to lie to him, to hurt him and run away.
Ten years laters they meet again and the love they've shared is still there. They had grown up and their past had shaped their present. 
When Maya and Del's family secrets are spoken, everything seems to shatter around them. But truth and love are the only way to start a new life.

“The reason she hadn't fallen for anyone else, the reason she'd never found love, was because she couldn't. Del had claimed her heart and to the best of her knowlwdge he'd never given it back.
She was, after all this time, still in love with him.”

After 18 books, Fool's Gold delivers another great story.
I loved how the relationship between Maya and Del brings out the best in each other.
Del has some issue to trust Maya again, but I liked how he overcomes the disappointment and the betryal feelings to be with Maya. 

“Because it was good, damn her. And he didn't want it to be. Maya was born trouble. At least she had been for him. Not that he would make that mistake again. He'd trusted her with everything he had and she'd thrown it back in his face. Lesson learned.”

I loved how Maya is willing and strong enough to let go of her past and become a mature woman.

“First love was usually intense. For her it had been that and more. With Del, for the first time in her life she'd allowed herself to hope she might not have to go it alone. That maybe, just maybe she could belive that someone else would be there for her. To look out for her. To give a damn.”

Susan Mallery has the ability to shape true characters and real life. Marriage, siblings complications, friendship, family secrets, misunderstanding, first love, loyalty, second chances.

“Maybe it was just who she was, or who he was around her. Maybe the draw couldn't be explained. It simply was one of those strange laws of the universe.”

In future books I'd love to see more about the Mitchell brothers and Madeline's crush for Jonny Blaze. 
In this book another small town is mentioned: Happily, Inc. . I hope that Susan Mallery will surprise me with another great series!
If you haven't yet read a Fool's Gold book, it's time to wake up and go visit and explore this amazing town, where magic and happily ever after can happen.
Read. Laugh. Love.
