Only Mine by Susan Mallery

Only Mine


You can’t win if you don’t play…

Her town’s lack of men may make headlines, but it isn’t news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool’s Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town.

Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers—the perfect contestants—off the show. Despite Dakota’s better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn’t dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV.


I don't really know what to think of Only Mine. This is the first book by this author I have read and something was missing. I hate when I feel like there is something missing, but I can't figure out what it is.

The story starts off with Dakota meeting Finn while he is in an angry rampage. Finn is just way too overprotective of his brothers. I am not sure what he thinks he can do. The whole way through the book he just doesn't listen to anyone and just gets angry in seconds. I didn't really like him that much. I also didn't really see him being in love with Dakota.

Dakota was sweet. I liked her and wanted nothing but the best for her. I didn't really see her in love with Finn, but that's okay. I didn't really like the most likely can't get pregnant so don't worry about protection thing. I didn't like the way that ended up. I did like how she was always level headed and kept Finn in check. She was always the voice of reason, and really once she got her baby I did like the two of them together more. I also did not like the intimate moments between Dakota and Finn. They were too clinical or something. It was the best and I skimmed quickly through them.

I did like Stephen and Auriel. They were so nice together and they helped make this book enjoyable. Even though they had an age difference, they both are in similar places in their lives. Yes, Auriel has a job and Stephen has to finish school, but because of her mom Auriel is in a similar place. I really liked them together and how they helped make each other better, stronger. They added to the story.

I know that seems like I didn't like a lot of this book, and I didn't, but I didn't have it overall. I just didn't love it. It was an alright book. For some reason I feel like I should give the author another try to see if it is just this book that I didn't love. We shall see.

Rating: 2/5
