Just One Kiss by Susan Mallery Foold's Gold #11


Just One Kiss (Fool's Gold #11)

He won't hesitate to put his life on the line...but will he ever risk his heart?
Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw's otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he's back in Fool's Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won't abandon her again-and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He's returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can't resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice's past doesn't make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they'll succumb to just one kiss... Then one more... Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone's control.

My Review:

 Just One Kiss by Susan Mallery
This book is located in Fool's Gold and is mostly about Patience McGraw. She works at the hair salon and has a daughter named Lillie.
When she was 14 she had a crush on Justine Garrett but the day she got up the nerve to tell him Ford had shown up so she walked away. The next morning she goes to tell him and his house is vacated. everything gone...
He is now a bodyguard and had guarded a local for a while a year ago but she never knew why he had left. He finds her one day and they meet for coffee and he explains what happened. Then it's her turn...
The thing I like about Fool's Gold is most main jobs are held and run by women, strong ones and the fact life is easy going and you can pick up any book and catch up with everybody in town.
She inherits a bunch of money from her mothers friend who she met when she was 4 and she goes looking for a building in town to make her dream of brew-haha come to life. She's got the plan and resources for the things she needs for the store.
Justice also is shopping for a place for his bodyguard/training there in town and finds one. His other investors are on board-including Ford Hendrix.
Her friend Isabel is back from NY, getting a divorce and is going to run/sell her mothers bridal shop within a few months time. She and  Patience are still the best of friends and will help support one anothers endeavors.
Love the interaction Lillie finds in Justice, too cute to ask for his help.
From the beginning I thought this would be just a typical romance predictable book, it's anything but!
Hot steamy sex scenes and mucho surprises that are action packed and full of new adventures.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
