Yes! It's summer, and there's nothing better than a feel good contemporary story for me. I haven't read the rest of this series, I admit, but I saw this book feature on a friends' blog and just had to get it. I was hoping it would work as a standalone and I think it accomplished the job perfectly. If I did miss something because there were some previous couples getting hitched or showing up, then I can honestly say it didn't take away from enjoying this story.
Shane works with horses. He's back in Fool's Gold doing what he loves while building his own ranch and licking his wounds from the bad divorce from his ex-wife. Now he decided he can't have another woman that he is that passionately attracted to. Another woman that can truly make his blood boil spells trouble.
Annabelle is the town's librarian and not a local. Too bad the first time Shane sees her she's dancing on a tabletop at a bar. No matter how much he wants her he thinks its better to stay away. But she wants him and they keep running into each other.
This is maybe a story about love at first sight. Or at least lust at first sight, but their connection quickly develops into something more. It was a very sweet and light read.
Having not read this author before, I have to admit that I enjoy her style. This was romantic, with a sense of a small town and family that I like, and just felt very easy to read.
Shane was to die for sexy and Annabelle was determined to have him without begging. I like that.
I think I might have to find time to read the other stories in the series and will definitely be looking forward to the next book to come out.

Summer Nights is my favorite book in the entire Fool's Gold series! ”Melissa G wrote this review Saturday, July 7, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Fool's Gold continues to be one of my favorite series. Susan Mallery writes such loveable characters that you can't help but fall in love with all of them. Summer Nights is a wonderful love story between Shane and Annabelle that teaches readers not to judge new love by the harm an old love caused. It blends friendship and romance perfectly and leaves you wanting to read the next novel, All Summer Long as soon as possible. :D”Kendra Ogles wrote this review Sunday, July 1, 2012.

“Loved it. Annabelle is the quiet town librarian. She is getting ready for one of the festivals that will raise money for a bookmobile. In this festival there is a dancing horse and a dance of a happy virgin. She demonstrated the dance for her friends on the bar at Jo's. Shane just happened to see the dance and immediately thought the sexy redhead was just like his ex-wife who wasn't happy unless she was the center of attention. She also cheated on him many times. This left Shane with major trust issues. Annabelle doesn't ride, but has to learn in order to do the festival. Her friend Heidi sets her up with lessons from Shane, where they both feel the attraction. Shane fights it hard, still believing that Annabelle is the wrong type for him. Over the next few weeks they spend a lot of time together, not just with the horse but doing other things. They also give in to the passion. I loved Shane's patience with teaching Annabelle. He knew just what he needed to do to help her ride. I also loved the horse that everyone thought was so vicious, but was an absolute puppy dog around Annabelle. I also loved the way that Shane took care of his mom's animals and worked to help the elephant to find friends. Shane also came to Fool's Gold to set up his horse breeding business. He had no plans to become part of the community. But this is Fool's Gold and it just sucked him in. He soon finds himself giving riding lessons to little girls, going to baseball games with the other men, and getting strong armed by the mayor. When he makes a stupid mistake with Annabelle he finds himself on the bad side of nearly everyone in town - I loved the attitude he got from everyone. I loved the slow rise of the romance between Shane and Annabelle, and the hot love scenes. I loved seeing his brothers and the other men trying to explain things to him, and the utter confusion he was going through. The conclusion was fantastic. I can't wait for Charlie's story, and then Evie's.”ScoutmomSKF wrote this review Tuesday, June 26, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
