Only His by Susan Mallery


Only His (Fool's Gold)

Synopsis:

Wedding bells are ringing in Fool's Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they've seen each other naked, but she'll never forget the way he broke her heart.

Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada's "business only" ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life. But when great business partners turn out to be so much more, every rule gets broken. Will either of them be willing to try again…or will their past get in the way?

Review:

Only His is the third book about the triplet Hendrix sisters. The other two sisters have found their men, and now Nevada is feeling a little left out. Her sisters are going to have a double wedding at the end of the year, and while she is really happy for them she is also sad that she won't be getting married as well. They have done everything together so I can understand that. And of course then you know how this book is going to end, which made the ending a little too quick for me.

Nevada has been working for her families company, but she wants to go out and see if she can get a job and prove herself elsewhere. She applies for her dream job only to find that that would mean working for her first love Tucker. She had been in love with Tucker for a long time, back when he was with Cat. They spent one night together, with Tucker drunk and hurt from his breakup that day, and she has not seen him since. At first she doesn't want to work with him, but eventually she figures she can do it. No problem.

Tucker's relationship with Cat was intense. He thought he loved her, and when it ended with her he realized how not himself he was with her. She was an obsession, like a drug to him. Since then people have told him that is not what love is, you don't have to loose yourself to be in love, but he doesn't believe them. He wants nothing to do with love because he doesn't want to be in that position again.

Of course Tucker and Nevada can't stay away from each other. Tucker sees Nevada now, unlike when he was with Cat. He likes her, has fun with her, they are attracted to each other, everything is great. He is leaving eventually and doesn't want it to get super serious between them, and Nevada knows that. Then Cat shows up and man I wish Nevada could stick up for herself. I have no idea why Nevada would consider Cat a friend and why she would talk to her at all. When you find out what Cat did back in the day...I wouldn't have been able to forgive her for that. Plus Cat is pretty self centered and doesn't really seem to care about others and is way too over the top for me. I have no idea how Nevada handled being around her. Plus Cat was in her feminine phase so she wanted to be with Nevada, and even when Nevada was just like nope Cat still tried to convince her otherwise. I really hated Cat and wished someone would call her out on all her awfulness.  Thankfully Tucker was not affected by her anymore.

Besides Tucker and Nevada you also have the story of Jo and Will. I liked learning more about Jo and her past. They were not the main couple, but it was still nice to see their relationship progress. Then of course there is some drama with both couples, some heartbreak, some making up. The end, as I have said earlier, was way too quick. It was like two pages everything is fine now! Yey! No. It just was too quick, too easy. This book wasn't my favorite in the series, but it wasn't the worst either. Still a good read even if some of the characters annoyed me.

Rating: 3.5/5
