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?
After reading Only Mine all I wanted was to get the next book so I could plunge right back in Fool’s Gold. Only Yours focuses this time on Montana’s story. I can already tell you it was a cute and funny story! Not that I doubted it would be anything but. *wink*
Montana has a job she loves, training dogs so they would help people. I have to say I envied her job. Who wouldn’t like training puppies into being serviceable dogs! I love how Susan Mallery characterized Montana’s dogs. They are so cute and I’m sure if you have a dog it’ll make you want to reach out and pet it. I’m a sucker for cute pets in books (yes I’m easy like that).
And what did you know that one of Montana’s puppy landed her right into the arms of a very sexy man. I couldn’t help but laugh at how it happened.
Cue dark and sexy hero, aka Simon. Ladies, prepare the fan because this hero is one tough cookie. I do have a thing for jerk/dark/brooding/scarred/sexy heroes…well isn’t that my luck! Here we are with the perfect candidate. *g* Simon is tortured and no, I didn’t always understand him, but sometimes people are weird that way and they don’t always make sense. At least he had the good sense to realize it ;).
We could say that Montana didn’t really make a good first impression, but the same could be said for Simon. They got off on a rocky start but I loved the sexual tension between them. Simon is…intense…and it was very interesting to see how unsettle he was around Montana.
Only Yours is a sexy and cute story. I’m dying to read the next book to read more about the triplet’s mother. She has one really fascinating story and I cannot waiiiiiiit to see where this go *g*. My only complaint about the story is that it felt a bit like a dejà-vu. Well maybe it is on purpose but some things were a bit too much like the first book. The story is predictable but it doesn’t take any fun from reading it, I’d even go as far as to say that it was reassuring to know I could predict how it would end (I don’t do well with suspense).
I can say it with all my heart this book was a very good Summer read. If you’re not already addicted to Fool’s Gold
you should definitely give this series a try.
I give Only Yours 4 Bookies
