Описание

Her town's lack of men may make headlines, but it isn't news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool's Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers - the perfect contestants - off the show. Despite Dakota's better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn't dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.

    MUCH better than the previous book in the series. There was a bit too much repetition--several times the characters seemed to be having the exact same conversation/ explaining things that were already covered, but it was just mildly distracting--not sure if they were supposed to have not been listening the first time around or Mallery thought we weren't. Finn took a bit too long to catch on to the fact that his brothers were actually old enough to make their own decisions, but it wasn't so bad that I wanted Dakota to smack him upside the head. Close, but not quite. For the most part nearly everyone in this book acted more or less like rational human beings the majority of the time, so it was nice. This one gives me hope for Nevada and Montana's stories.

    Only Mine really touched close to home for me. I love Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series and with every book that is released, it just gets better and better. You can easily put yourself in her characters shoes and get lost inside of the world she has created. Susan Mallery to me is one of my all time favorite Romance Writers.Only Mine was a little different than the first three books. Mallery actually fit in a sub-plot, and what a sweet and romantic sub-plot it was. I loved every minute of Only Mine and I even shed a tear or two. It was so easy for me to relate to the main character Dakota. Some of the things Dakota was going through made me cry because I experienced something similar. I also loved the relationship between Finn and Dakota. Finn had a little bad attitude and Dakota was there to balance him out. Not only were they perfect for each other, but it was almost like they had been best friends since forever. The chemistry between the two was undeniable. Finn was everything a man should be. He was there for Dakota through hard times and really had no reason to be. I just loved it!I'll say it again, if you have not read a book by Susan Mallery, go pick one up! It only takes one and I promise you will find yourself picking up every book she has ever written. Susan Mallery's books are entertaining, fast reads and will leave your stomach full of butterflies. You will love them! 4 out of 5 Stars!

    Inhaltsangabe:Dakota Hendrix hat eine harte Zeit hinter sich. Vor ein paar Monaten hatte sie erfahren, dass sie nur äußerst schwer ein eigenes Kind bekommen kann. Daher bewirbt sie sich bei einer internationalen Adoptions-Agentur um ein Adoptiv-Kind.Während dessen herrscht in Fools Gold helle Aufregung. Eine Reality-Show hält Einzug und ihr Chef Raoul hat sie großzügig dem Set zur Verfügung gestellt – als Vermittlerin zwischen der Stadtverwaltung und der Produktionsfirma.Und in dieser Funktion lernt sie Finn Anderson kennen, einem Piloten aus Alaska. Er ist nicht ganz freiwillig in Fools Gold. Seine Brüder haben im letzten Semester am College das Weite gesucht und versuchen ihr Glück in dieser Reality-Show. Die letzten acht Jahre kümmerte Finn sich allein um die Zwillings-Jungs, da die Eltern bei einem Flugzeug-Absturz ums Leben kamen. Nun glaubt Finn, sie werfen ihr Leben weg.Und Finn sieht für Dakota nicht nur gut aus. Er hat auch noch ausgezeichnete Liebhaber-Qualitäten, schließlich sind sie sich beide bewusst, dass es nichts Ernstes ist. Finn wird nach erfolgreicher Mission wieder nach Alaska zurückkehren und Dakota für Raoul im Camp arbeiten. Aber dann überstürzen sich die Ereignisse: Dakota kann ein kleines Mädchen adoptieren! Finn zeigt noch eine sehr weiche Seite und steht ihr bei …Kann sie Finn tatsächlich noch kampflos nach Alaska ziehen lassen, nachdem er scheinbar auch noch ihr Herz erobert hat?Mein Fazit:Dies ist der vierte Teil der Fools Gold-Reihe und es gab ja schon im dritten Teil einen zarten Hinweis, das Dakota Hendrix, eine von den Drillings-Schwestern, dieses Mal eine Geschichte gewidmet wird. Und tatsächlich geht das Herzklopfen in der Stadt weiter.Und es gibt in diesem Buch tatsächlich noch eine kleine Nebenhandlung, die, wie ich finde, sehr schön eingebaut wurde. Es geht um Aurelia und Stephen, einer von Finns Brüdern. Aurelia ist schon 30 Jahre alt und wird von der Mutter bedrückend behandelt. Stephen, 21 Jahre alt, ist offensichtlich das erste Mal außerhalb von Alaska und genießt die kalifornische Sonne und die Reality-Show. Sofort verlieben sie sich ineinander, obwohl der Altersunterschied durchaus für (glaubhafte) Diskussionen sorgt. Und sie beide müssen lernen, für sich selbst einzustehen und sich den Respekt der Familie zu verdienen. Mir hat diese Nebenhandlung genauso gut gefallen wie der Hauptteil, der sich um Dakota und Finn dreht.Man trifft auch auf alte Bekannte aus früheren Teilen und natürlich ist dort schon ein versteckter Hinweis auf den fünften Teil drin, der mich natürlich neugierig macht, aber mich nicht dazu nötigt, sofort den nächsten Teil zu lesen. Ich liebe die Geschichten um Fools Gold, aber aufgrund eines gewissen Schemas, das sich immer wieder wiederholt (mehr oder weniger), muss ich nicht zwei Romane hintereinander lesen. Dieses Mal hat es mich jedoch aus einer drohenden Lese-Flaute herausgeholt und hat super als solches funktioniert.Nein, kein literarisches Meisterwerk, aber sehr unterhaltsam und auch bewegend. Volle fünf Sterne von mir!Anmerkung: Ich habe es als eBook gelesen!Veröffentlicht am 07.02.16!

    Susan Mallery did it again. She is such a genius.

    I have to say Dakota's story has been by far my favorite of all of them. And this is only book #4. I ak so excited to see what more she has to bring to the table.

    This book was HOTT. I felt I was pratically in the book with Finn. phew wouldnt that be something. I was sad. I cried. I was happy. I cheered.

    Oh and lets not forget Stephen ajd Arielia (forget how to spell her name) I loved that story as well.
    I kinda wish they had gotten their own story. But eh. it was still teriffic.

    I feel like this series keeps disappointing me. There are comments about race and gender that kind of bother me; I'll give a couple more in the series a shot before shelving it for good.

    I really enjoyed returning to Fool's Gold. This is the story of Dakota Hendrix, one of Ethan's triplet sisters.

    The story flowed well. Both Dakota and Finn were both fun characters. They really butted heads early on, but I never felt like they really had any animosity for each other. Mostly Finn was just frustrated by the situation with his brothers and taking it out on Dakota, which she understand. As the story progressed, so did their relationship. I like that they were friends first, then lovers. The friendship seemed to hold together as they moved to a different level.

    The secondary storylines featuring Finn's brothers were also well done. The town and its inhabitants were just as charming this time around. Kind of made me want to move.

    *****SPOILER*****Having said that, I did have a major problem with the main story arc. There was so much potential here. Finn doesn't want kids or a family because he gave up his life to raise his brothers. Which is totally understandable. But Dakota just adopted a child. Why couldn't that have been used to bring about their final conflict? Instead Dakota got pregnant. Even though the chances of her getting pregnant were 1 in a million. She wasn't supposed to be able to have children ever, which is why she adopted. I'm beyond annoyed that an unexpected miracle baby was used as a plot device.*****SPOILER*****

    Setting that issue aside, I really enjoyed the story. The romance was well done and I enjoyed the way Finn and Dakota got to know each other. I even enjoyed the way Finn was with Dakota's daughter. But that last issue is a big one and definitely detracts from my overall enjoyment.

    3.75/5

    Only Mine by Susan Mallery is the continuation of the Fool’s Gold Series that she started a while back.
    I love how I can pick up one of her series books and start reading new story while revisiting old friends from the past. This is Dakota’s story, she is one of the three triplets that was mentioned previously and we were hoping she would have a story. Dakota has been asked by her boss, the mayor, to help oversee the production of the TV show Fool’s Gold or True Love. This is not the job that she wants but she embraces it. Finn comes to Fool’s Gold following his two twin brothers who are signed up for the show. His goal is to get the boys back to Alaska ASAP – of course this does not happen and therefore we get the story called Only Mine. There are some things that you see coming, a few surprises and quite a few smiles. It is a book that when I was down to the last 100 pages I didn’t want to do anything but finish the book.

    Reviewed by SabrinaOriginally posted at Romancing the BookReview copy provided by Little Bird PublicityIt was adorable. There was nothing too angsty about it. It was light and flirty and had some fun moments. The characters were realistic. The ending was a little predictable, but hey, it did a good job getting there. There were enough moments in the book to keep me guessing which was unexpected but nice. The only things I think that took away from the story was some of the repetition. The repetition was really repetitive. The repetitiveness was a little distracting. See? Granted, it was NOT this bad in the story. But there were times I could have sworn that I had read that sentence before. This was mostly a problem when talking about feelings, which in turn wasn’t a big part of the story until the end when things were coming to climax and then being resolved. I actually really look forward to the rest in the series. I don’t think I will pre-order them or anxiously await them or anything. But when I see they are available I will seriously consider reading them.

    Only Mine – Susan MalleryIn this continuing series of the “Fool’s Gold Saga,” we have now “Only Mine”, the 4th book in this series. This is a contemporary romantic look at a small town with a man shortage, and people with secrets.Our protagonist is Dakota Hendrix, she is part of a set of triplets and she has a secret so personal even her sisters don’t know what it is. Dakota has been asked by the town’s mayor to help with screening the contestants on a new reality show that is pairing up couples and finding unexpected love matches. Dakota is a psychologist specializing in childhood development. What she doesn’t expect is to find a match for herself!. Our male protagonist is Alaskan pilot Finn Andersson who is there on a mission. Her is on a mission to save his brothers---twins if you can believe it! He needs to save his brothers from dropping out of college in their final semester and making the mistake of appearing in this TV program. Of course, Finn has his own set of painful secrets.I love Ms Mallery’s books and always have, but this one didn’t sit well with me. I feet as if certain parts of this book were not researched/written very well and may have been stuck in merely to try to provide additional conflict. This, in my opinion, was unnecessary since this book is chock full of conflict. There were more sub-plots than you can shake a stick at—and at times it can seem somewhat overwhelming and that the story of Dakota and Finn had taken a back seat so the rest of the characters stories could be developed.Dakota and Finn do get there “happily ever after” and the trip to it was generally a fun one.
