Just One Kiss by Susan Mallery

4 Stars
Just One Kiss (Fool's Gold #11)

I really like Fool's Gold stories. It is such a community that pulls together. So many characters from previous stories are still involved with the town. Their are a few love scenes that I skipped over I admit.

Justice lived in Fool's Gold for awhile as a teenager till he disappeared without a trace that he was even their. They were just gone. Now he is back and thinking of opening a business with two partners. Justice never forgot his two best friends Ford and Patience. He wondered many times about what if he was able to stay in Fool's Gold.

Patience has lived in Fool's Gold all her life. She has no desire to leave it. She lives in the same house she grew up in with her mother and daughter. Patience cuts hair for a living and dreams that one day she will open up a coffee cafe.

When Patience was fourteen she developed a crush on her best friend Justice. Justice was two years older. She was getting up her courage to tell him when she was interrupted by Ford another friend of theirs. Every day for school Patience would stop at Justice's home and they would walk the rest of the way together to school. But that last time their was no Justice waiting for her. He and his Uncle just disappeared overnight with all their belongings as if they were never there. Patience went home and told her mother about that.

Police tried to find them and could not. Patience never forgot her friend and always wondered what happened to him. She never saw or heard from Justice till he shows up at her work.

Justice was deciding if he wanted to open his new business in Fool's Gold. He is the one to decide if it will be a good place for them. Is one partner was Ford who grew up in Fool's Gold. Some days he wanted to come home and other times he wants to stay away from Fool's Gold and his big family. His other partner Angel did not care where they should open their business.

Justice wondered if he could belong in Fool's Gold. Would he be good for Patience? What if he turns to more violence like his father did.

I like the plot line of this book with many surprises to come. Lots of questions get answered and brings more questions to be answered. The community sounds like it would be a nice place to live. People get involved in each others lives and care about each other.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when I was through with it by Netgalley.
05/28/2013 PUB. Harlequin Imprint Harlequin HQN 384 pages ISBN-10: 0373777604

I can tell that their is a few new stories that are going to be told in upcoming books. I can't wait to see what happens next in Fool's Gold.

Description below taken off of Netgalley.

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.
