Summer Nights by Susan Mallery


11 Critic Reviews

All in all this wasn’t my favorite Fool’s Gold Series, and the one that had the weakest romance, in my opinion.
-The Bookpushers


Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he's determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher's wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill.

Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can't understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her with a special event for the next Fool's Gold festival. And maybe while he's at it, she can convince him to teach her a few things about kissing on hot summer nights, too—some lessons, a girl shouldn't learn from reading a book!

There’s a little fun, a little sizzle, and a whole lot of homespun charm.

Romancing the Book

Reviewed by JoAnne on Jun 22 2012

The story flowed easily and was a nice continuation of the Fool’s Gold’s books that have come before

Summer Nights is the same light-hearted and entertaining book that Mallery is known for. The wit and attention-grabbing dialogue are enjoyable.

Reviewed by Estelle on Jul 02 2012

Mallery inserts a lot of comical moments as well (like with Shane’s growing farm) and really knows how to build chemistry and intrigue.

I was bored. I mean I laughed and was entertained in many parts but i was still bored. I still wanted more than what I got.

Susan Mallery’s writing is fantastic. She’ll make you laugh and cry and want to call your best friend to rant and rave about the storylines.

Though she is skilled at creating the small town world, Susan Mallery truly excels at character-driven romance, and that's what this most recent book lacked.

Sure this is a HEA book and to a point I wish that there had been a little bit more conflict. Everything works out just perfect, almost too perfect.

Gone With the Words

Reviewed by Jess on Jun 28 2012

Summer Nights has got to be Susan Mallery’s steamiest book in the Fool’s Gold series to date! I found it completely fun, flirty, and sexy.

I can’t tell you just how much I love this series with each book you get a sense of someone new but the old characters you’ve grown to love still come back to make you happy as well.
