Описание

Montana Hendrix has found her calling - working with therapy dogs. With a career she loves in a hometown she adores, she's finally ready to look for her own happily ever after. Could one of her dogs help her find Mr. Right... or maybe Dr. Right?

Surgeon Simon Bradley prefers the sterility of the hospital to the messiness of real life, especially when real life includes an accident-prone mutt and a woman whose kisses make him want what he knows he can't have. Scarred since childhood, he avoids emotional entanglement by moving from place to place to heal children who need his skillful touch. Can his growing feelings for Montana lead him to find a home in Fool's Gold, or will he walk away, taking her broken heart with him?

    A good heart tugging story. I usually get turned off by such a stubborn hero but his struggle and those of other burn victims made his disbelief in love realistic. The secondary romance and overall sense of family were nice too. One of Montana's therapy dogs escapes into hospital burn unit and doctor Simon get angry about it.

    A few dozen pages into this book I realised it was part of a series. Not only that, but the kind of series I dislike -- those in which the author takes an extended family and uses each book in the series to focus on one member or one couple.

    The complex family structure, with characters popping on and off stage, was a giveaway, as was the lack of consistent and integrated details about the town of Fool's Gold, even though it plays a crucial part in the story.

    The latter was probably the factor that detracted most. Not having read the four preceding volumes, I struggled to form a mental map of this town. As bits and pieces of information were introduced, it metamorphosed from a small village to a sizeable city, then back again to an idyllic one-street town.

    The story of the love affair between Montana and Simon was nicely paced and developed at first, began to falter in mid-book, then rushed to a gooey feel-good ending.

    I suspect that the only part of the book I'll remember in a few weeks is the description of the training and use of therapy dogs, but even this element was replayed so many times that it got stale.

    I keep going back to Susan Mallery's romances because they are fun, entertaining and don't require much from me. The characters and plot twists are not as annoying as some romances and I usually want to find out how they are going to get tho the happy ending not just wishing the book was over.

    I'm not sure if I'm burning out on this series or small-town romances in general, but I really struggled with the sameness of this book. I really struggled with all the freaking babies in this book. Does everyone really want to have babies? Everyone?

    I liked Montana and Simon, but I feel like their story has been told before. Many, many times.

    First lemme say I loved this book.
    I love Montana how happy and funny she is. I like that we got to see deeper and see she has been hurt and is a bit self conscious.
    I like Simon. I like that hes an egotistical douche somtimes. I think they balance eachother out.

    What I DIDN'T like was the ending.
    ugh the book was so good. I was not expecting that ending. It was like SM ran out of things to add in the ending and watched a really BAD soap opera and got the ending from that.

    like I said great book all the way up to that terrible ending. I literally laughed as I read it. Not the good kind of laugh. A "Are you freakin kidding me" kinda laugh.

    with that said Im ready for Neveda's story and to learn more about Denise and Max

    Inhaltsangabe:Montana Hendrix kann den jungen Hund nicht bändigen, als er ins Krankenhaus entwischt und dort ein ordentliches Chaos anrichtet. Allen voran Dr. Simon Bradley ist außer sich, denn gerade auf der Station für Verbrennungen sind besondere Hygiene-Vorschriften zu beachten.Montana wird von der Bürgermeisterin beauftragt, gerade den Dr. Simon Bradley zum Bleiben zu bewegen. Fools Gold braucht noch immer frische und junge Männer und ein plastischer Chirurg ist immer herzlich willkommen.Dr. Bradley allerdings hat schweres Gepäck bei sich: Er wurde als Kind schwer verletzt, körperlich wie seelisch. Und er sieht es als seine Pflicht an, sich um alle schwer verbrannten Kinder auf dieser Welt zu kümmern. Eine emotionale Heimat benötigt er bislang nicht. Doch in Montana sieht er eine Herausforderung: Sie übersieht nicht nur großartig seine Narben, sie verliebt sich auch noch ihn und er kann nicht leugnen, auch etwas für sie zu empfinden …Mein Fazit:Inzwischen sind einem die Personen aus der kleinen Stadt Fool’s Gold vertraut und mir auch ans Herz gewachsen. Nach dem fünften Band fühlt man sich fast schon wie zu Hause und man glaubt, alle Figuren persönlich zu kennen.Dieses Mal erwischt es Montana von den Hendrix-Drillingen. Und Dr. Simon Bradley ist eigentlich nur auf der Durchreise. Die kleine Kalinda hatte einen schweren Verbrennungs-Unfall und ihr Zustand ist noch sehr ernst. Seit er als Kind selbst schwere Verbrennungen erlitt, hat er es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, anderen Kindern weltweit und so gut wie möglich zu helfen – nicht immer mit Erfolg. Beziehungen – gar Liebe – lehnte er bislang ab und bei Montana will er es auch so handhaben.Dieser Roman hat mich von Anfang in den Bann gezogen, denn Simon Bradley ist eine sehr interessante Persönlichkeit und ganz sicher nicht leicht zu verstehen. Die Geschichte weicht ein bisschen vom bisherigen Muster ab und das fand ich durchaus erfrischend. Es war auch nicht ganz so witzig wie die anderen, hatte dafür aber ein wenig mehr Tiefe. Schön!Für zwischendurch ist es die ideale Unterhaltung, um mal ganz abzutauchen (und leider taucht man viel zu schnell wieder auf). Volle fünf Sterne – auch wenn es leichte Kost ist. Ich freue mich schon auf den nächsten Band.Anmerkung: Ich habe es als eBook gelesen!Veröffentlicht am 13.04.16!

    I go back and forth on this series. I really wanted to like this one - the triplets are fun characters, and I've always had a soft spot for Montana, who 1) always felt a little behind her sisters, having some trouble figuring out her place in the world and 2) finally found that place working with therapy dogs. What's not to love, right? Well, at times I did love her story. It was sweet and involved a cute guy, kids, and dogs. At other times, though, it veered into eye-roll territory. Simon's internal monologues just made we want to shake him as the book went on...get over yourself, dude! A few of the conversations between him and members of the town - particularly a later one with Denise - were sickly-sweet unbelievably unrealistic, even for fiction. And what kind of doctor leaves a dying (literally, at that very moment) patient before the outcome is determined? Seriously???

    In between those questionable parts, it was a decent story. I am looking forward to Nevada's story - hope springs eternal.

    Glad I didn't read other reviews before I read the book. I really enjoyed it the best of the series, and I enjoyed all the others very much.
    It is what it is, a series of an extended family where everything works out. Do things get resolved quickly and perfectly? Of course.
    But the situations are fun and the people are likable. Does this place exist anywhere in the real world? Of course not. Would you want to live there if it did exist? Probably not. But it is fun to visit and to hang out a while.

    Reviewed by JenReview copy provided by NetGalleyThis is the second of the Hendrix triplet's stories and the fifth of the Fool's Gold series. Of this series, I've only read Only Mine, book four. However, I'm a huge fan of Susan Mallery's so when I say this book on NetGalley. I had to grab it. Montana has always struggled to find her place as the youngest of triplets, but the pieces seem to fall in place when she begins to train service dogs. The story begins with Montana talking a walk with a dog-in-training. Fluffy gets loose and ends up running around the local hospital and while Montana is chasing him, she literally runs into Simon, a doctor who is not understanding about this accident. Simon's a world renown surgeon, specializing in burn victims. He's visiting Fool's Gold for a short stint in the hospital. Due to a traumatic childhood, Simon is determined to keep his distance from everyone and not form any attachments. But something about Montana worms her way past his defenses and add in a spunky dog and a young burn victim and Simon is a goner. I love how Ms Mallery spins a tale. She has a way of creating characters that just reach in and tug at your heart strings. I really felt for Simon as his past is revealed and how it effected his life and relationships -- especially as he fought his growing feelings for Montana. But what I really like is that while this book is a part of a series and past characters (and ones who will star in future books) make appearances, the book focuses on the stars and doesn't really have any subplots to complete for time. And what subplots there are, are relevant to Simon's and Montana's story. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, and hunting down some past books so I can revisit Fool's Gold.

    Only yours had you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Montana is the youngestof triplets. She works with therapy dogs. She takes them to hospital s, care centers and even to a library to help kids with reading. Montana was walking a dog that was not going to work out as a therapy dog. He got loose from her and got into a hospital on his own and knocked over a Dr. in the burn unit.Dr. Simon Bradley got angry and yelled at her. Montana said words back and left.Kalinda is a little girl in the burn unit and was in a lot of pain and doped up butt she heard the dog and asked if she could see him. Dr. Simon Bradley was in fool gold for a few months doing surgery and helping burn victims He goes all over the world working a few months at different hospitals a lot in third world countries. His life is his patients. He spent 4 years in hospitals healing from his own burns. So Dr. Simon told Kalinda he would see about getting a dog into visit her.Montana had the mayor ask her to try and get Dr. Bradley to stay in their town and work in the new hospital. Montana and Simon kept running into each other. Simon has never been so attracted to anyone before. He is a great Dr. but social skills he does not have. When he sees her sisters Dakota and Navada he is not attracted to them even though they are identical.The patients in the burn unit are tugging on emotions. You get involved with all the characters and I want to read more about them. I can see their are more books about the town that has lot of women and few men thats now changing.I enjoyed watching Simon and Montana falling in love and seeing Simon opening up. Liked the dogs made me want to get one even though their is one on my bed and one in the other room.I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley

    This is the fifth installation of the Fool Gold's series by the author. Despite this is part of a series, it is also stand alone per se where one can read this book independently. As this especially useful for someone who have not follow the earlier book in the same collection.To date there are six book in the series of which the latter three are about the triplet from Fool Gold; Dakota, Montana and Nevada. This book is tell the story of Montana who fell in love with Dr Simon Bradley who due to his past, is unable to commit neither have the intention to do so. Knowing that, Montana resisted the obvious and enter into a relationship that have no ending. But being a strong believer in love, i was keeping my finger crossed that things will work out for them and it does. That is the amazing element in a romance book where one can still believe that love can overcome all obtacles.I like the story plot very much and the way the story was told which the intensity of the situation between Montana and Dr Simon has make it so difficult for me to put it down ;)

    This was my first experience with the Fool's Gold series and what a great experience it was. What I liked: I totally and completely like the characters and the town of Fool's Gold. Mallery knows how to write a contemporary romance you can just sit back and enjoy. There are no huge events to cause emotional reading swings, just a story about a broken man and a hopeful woman looking for love. I enjoyed every aspect of Simon with all his flaws. Usually (I don't know why) I like my fictional characters to be physically appealing. While Simon is seen and described as gorgeous...it's only one half of his face. The other is scarred from burns sustained as a child. Somehow, Mallery wrote a character I completely accepted and enjoyed his looks. Even when he was being a jerk, I still liked this character and hoped the best for him. Montana, the female main character, was a perfect match for Simon and I really enjoyed watching them get to know each other. I liked the dog therapy aspect that added a perfect reason to continue bringing Simon and Montana together. What I didn't like: This isn't really a "didn't like" and more of "not in the mood" to read about the secondary things happening. I skimmed over certain interactions from secondary characters. I really enjoyed the Simon/Montana story and wanted to stay focused on that. Overall: This was an enjoyable contemporary romance. I relaxed and read it in one day. Fans of previous books will get to see how some of the characters are doing. There are also hints of possible romance stories for future books with certain characters. I was just impatient to see the outcome for Simon and Montana to read about them too closely. ;)

    What drew me to this book (besides the fact that it's Susan Freakin' Mallery and I love her books) was that the main character, Montana Hendrix, had a job working with dogs. Not only do I love dogs but I have a dog and I even trained and tested with her to be a therapy dog (she failed because sometimes she's a wuss, but that's neither here nor there and I still love her very much). There is even a program in my area that has dogs and their handlers going to libraries so kids can read to them called Reading with Rover. Now, because I have experience in therapy dogs and what they do and how it works I was surprised to find out that Montana's boss, Max, has a whole stable of therapy dogs for different purposes. And he must be super, duper wealthy because A) therapy work is volunteer and B) dog upkeep (food, toys, equipment, vet bills, etc.) is very expensive--besides owning a dog I also worked for a vet, too, so I know these things. So, while all of this stuff was nagging at the back of my mind during the entire story I decided to suspend my belief because, hello, this book takes place in a town where there appears to be a festival of some sort every week and it is a town over run by women and it advertises to get men there. And, really, that can't be a normal, everyday experience.So, the story goes that Montana chases a misbehaving new therapy recruit (who later ends up not being the right sort but adopted by one of her siblings) into the local hospital where visiting plastic surgeon and burn victim specialist Dr. Simon Bradley is treating a new patient. Because of the unexpected and distastrous entrance of said therapy dog drop-out the relationship of Montana and Dr. Bradley get off on the very wrong foot. However, when the new burn patient--a young girl--shows signs of improvement when the dog unexpectedly bounded into her room, the mother encourages Dr. Bradley to seek out a more suitable therapy dog to interact with her daughter in hopes of increasing her chances of survival. Thus begins a up and down relationship between an outgoing and openhearted Montana and the guarded and emotionally reserved Simon.Despite my critique about therapy dogs and how I understand it to work I really did enjoy this book (as I usually do with Susan Mallery books) and thought it was a good addition to the Fool's Gold series. I enjoyed Montana's exuberance for life and her job (once she finally found what she wanted to stick with) and the way that Simon, even with his horrible, awful childhood burn experience, was able to see that there was good in the world and that different things work for different people during the healing process.
