Romance Review: All Summer Long by Susan Mallery

All Summer Long (Fool's Gold, #9)

Former underwear model turned entrepreneur Clay Stryker has loved, tragically lost and vowed that he’ll never risk his heart again. After making his fortune, the youngest of the rugged Stryker brothers returns to Fool’s Gold, California, to put down roots on a ranch of his own. But he’s frustrated to discover that even in his hometown, people see him only for his world-famous…assets.Firefighter Chantal (Charlie) Dixon grew up an ugly duckling beside her delicately beautiful mother, a feeling reinforced long ago by a man who left soul-deep scars. Now she has good friends, a solid job and the itch to start a family—yet she can’t move toward the future while she’s haunted by painful memories.
Clay finds an unexpected ally, and unexpected temptation, in tomboyish Charlie, the only person who sees beyond his dazzling good looks to the real man beneath. But when Charlie comes to him with an indecent proposal, will they be able to overcome their pasts and find a love that lasts beyond one incredible summer?

Another great book in this series, but I still hold a soft spot for Pia and Raul. But this book was a little different because we have also a mother-daughter relationship. If you follow this series this is Charlie book and we all knew she was going to be a difficult one, because of her past and her issues with men. But Clay was a great guy and I didn’t expected him to be so good with emotions and helping Charlie.

So I had my fears with this book, because it sounded like the most dramatic for me, but Clay made things so easy and I liked seeing him with the rest of his family, I always thought they were a little estranged, but they have a very normal relationship and it’s nice seeing them all together. Charlie also has to deal with family, but her mother is a mystery to me, because who treats her daughter like that? I was not in her side, but learned to accepted her.

These two together and fabulous and I loved this couple, but this book didn’t got a five star because of Charlie’s mother. Sorry, but I can’t forgive her that easily. Clay was supper nice and Charlie is very different but also different.
