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 regard...more
This review and all reviews for this series are going to be short, and to the point since there are 19 books in this series. Unless there is one that I love so much or hate so much that I just have to rant or rave. Chasing Perfect was a sweet start to the Fool's Gold Series. I have heard such good things about Susan Mallery that I had to try her books, and I can say I wasn't disappointed. This was a very cute story. Lower on the angst, this was more of a chill read. I loved the the ...more
City planner Charity is hired to bring more men to Fool’s Gold. Though considering her past history with terrible boyfriends, perhaps she wasn’t the best choice. Certainly she doesn’t trust her attraction to local hero Josh--a famous sports figure could never be interested in an ordinary woman like her, right?
The perfect-rich-charmi ...more
CHASING PERFECT is the first book in the Fools Gold series. There are currently thirty one books in this series and I have been wanting to read it since it came out years ago. I'm so excited to finally read it. CHASING PERFECT is a very sweet beginning to this series and lived up to everything my reader friends were saying about it. I was instantly hooked on the story and read it in one day. It is the story of Charity Jones a city planner who is looking to put down ro ...more
Susan Mallery delivers a small town romance story that will leave readers anticipating the next book in the series. A combination of whit, charm and steam provides a delightful and entertaining read.
Chasing Perfect is about Charity Jones, who is a young, vibrant go-getter. Having spent the majority of her life taking care of herself and moving around, she’s determined to find a place that is quiet and peaceful so that she can settle down. Her whole li ...more
First things first, I want to say that it got off to a HILARIOUS start. For your pleasure, I took down some of the lines that made me snort tea out my nose (attractively, of course):
- "When she made the mistake of meeting his hazel-green eyes, she
could have sworn she heard the theme from Gone with the Wind playing softly in the background."
- "...her curi ...more
I almost decided to skip this series by Susan Mallery. I usually tend to like her series, but not love them. And considering how bit my Mt TBR is, I just thought I'd pass on this one. But the setting of the series and the storyline intrigued me and I figured I'd give it a try. I'm really glad I did because I loved this book.
First book in Mallery's new "Fool's Gold" series.
Charity Jones has been looking for a place to call home her entire life, and she thinks sh ...more
Charity and Josh are fine, but again, rather standard—and with rather standard hang-ups. Her trust issues up against his commitment issues and with a small town set to watch the fireworks. And yes, I'm being a ...more
(view spoiler)[First, there's not a whole lot of depth to either character. They don't talk much, and when they do, there's no real conversation happening - no discussions about hopes and dreams, no talks about past relationships. As readers we get to see their inner monologues, but that never translates into a conversation where they can connect to each other. ...more
Chasing Perfect es el primer libro de la serie llamada Fools Gold de la autora Susan Mallery y narra la historia de Josh y Chasity, ademas de ser mi primera experiencia con el trabajo de la autora, aunque reconozco que hacia un tiempo que queria leer alguno de sus libros.
Desde hace unos dias queria leer alguna novela ligera y bien desarrollada del estilo de Kristan Higgins y recorde que habia leido muy buenas criticas de esta saga, por lo que decidi empezarla.

Romance books have a formula. I get it. It works, and for some readers it must be comforting. Take sassy (on the inside) yet conservative chick. Throw in man whore with a heart of gold. Put them in a situation where she acts like a bumbling idio ...more
Particularmente me encantan esos libros en donde hay muchos personajes, en este caso, una ciudad muy peculiar, y los vamos conociendo a todos libro tras libro y mas cuando son lindo personajes y todos tienen una historia tierna ...more
"PERFECTION IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER"
“Knowing what to do is the easy part. Finding the right person to do it with is a whole lot harder. - Josh Golden”
A fun and easy read! Even if i did not love it, i did enjoyed it.Most of all the characters were really sweet ad easy to like...
The Hero: Sexy athlete with a cocky attitude and a "tragic" past. But it works for him. And the story of his past isn't too angst-y or over the top, which I appreciate.
The Heroine: Let me start out my saying I am the same age as this heroine and what look ...more
When I first read this, I’ve read it again twice already since my first read; I was just getting into this type of adult romance that focused on the relationship and family rather than pure erotica. There was a story here, and it was a great one. Charity Jones moves to Fool’s Gold looking for a new start. She’s ready to settle down in a place she can call home, and just like any other romance MC she’s not looking for romance, then walks in Josh Golden. The ...more
