Review: Before We Kiss (Fools Gold #14) by Susan Mallery

 Before We Kiss by Susan Mallery
Release Date: May 28th

***Pub Date: May 28th***
New York Times bestselling sensation Susan Mallery returns to Fool's Gold, California, where it's true that sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs…

Former pro-football kicker Sam Ridge has notoriously bad luck with women—from cheaters to fame chasers. Still, the gorgeous brunette at the bar in Fool's Gold looks harmless—until she takes him home and he discovers a room devoted to securing a man, for life.

Dellina Hopkins never guessed that storing gowns from a friend's bridal boutique would chase away her first and only fling. After her parents died, she skipped her "wild youth" to raise her sisters. She doesn't want forever from Sam, but one night—all night—would've been nice.

His clean getaway gets messy when his firm hires Dellina to plan an event. As long hours lead to late nights, the two succumb to temptation again. Has Sam's luck finally changed? Or this time, will Dellina be the one to run?

My Review
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Heart Worming, sweet, and sexy are just a few words that describes Before We Kiss. Mallery has always been a pro at creating awesome characters. Sam is a retired football player that is just so yummy. Sam has always had horrible relationships in the past. So when a good woman comes along, he hesitates to let her into is heart.

I have always been in love with the Fools Gold series! Every time I see a new one out, I rush to get a copy. I was really captivated by this book. I really enjoyed the plot, and story line of this book. Sam and Dellina's story was cute.

Sam and Dellina had sex before this book, and Sam saw something that had him running from Dellina whenever he saw her. I thought that was funny. It created a nice connection between the characters. Dellina really tried to stay away from Sam sexually because they were working together. But, one thing led to another. Mallery is the queen of romance.

Dellina is an amazing party planner. I wish I had her skills. Sam and his partners at score wanted to throw a party for some of their business clients. Dellina planned the party, and lets just say I really wished I was there.

I really liked the side stories that was going on. I was surprised that Mayor Marsha had her own side story, but I really enjoyed it. I thought the side story about Dellina's sister was cute, but it also was a bit annoying. I wish we could have caught up with some of the other characters from the past like we do in other books!

I am a huge FG fan, and I am excited to read the next book in this series!!!
