Romance Review: Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery

Chasing Perfect (Fool's Gold, #1)

Welcome to Fool’s Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There’s lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there’s just one tiny problem in Fool’s Gold: the men don’t seem to stick around. Maybe it’s the lure of big-city life, or maybe it’s plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.Charity’s nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer—everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she’s not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he’s perfect just the way he is. But maybe that’s just what he needs—someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he’s just chasing perfect.

I have this series on the TBR for so long and have no idea why I keep postponing. I love romances and Susan Mallery makes the best of them, but Fool Gold has some books released that I was a little lazy to start. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with the book or anything it was just me and starting a new series dilemma.
Onto the best part we have a town with fewer males every year and a population very small. But it’s such a quaint little town in the mountains with great outdoors activity and some very nice weather. So what’s wrong, right? Nothing just better opportunities elsewhere, but the town great guy is back to stay and try to settle down after his career came to an end. Josh is everything good and he’s hiding his secrets and his fear, but he’s such a nice guy that it’s a little difficult to find bad things about him to say.
The girl was actually the mayor granddaughter and came to town after getting a job offer. You see she never knew her mother had left this town and it’s was quite a surprise to discover this little gem, but Charity made such a nice couple with Josh. They are truly meant to be because we can see friendship and love more than anything else. I liked this first book and it was nice meeting everyone, but my hopes are high for the rest of the series.
