All Summer Long by Susan Mallery

Length: 9 hrs and 30 mins

Date Read: September 2012

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

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?

First thought when finished: All Summer Long is going down as one of my favorite in the Fool’s Gold series. I really connected with Charlie and Clay!

What I thought of Story: All Summer Long is the story that I have been waiting for and is probably my favorite in the Fool’s Gold series. I adored pretty much everything about it from beginning to end. Everyone has their favorite couples and this one is mine!

What I thought of the Characters: You can pretty much guess that I love Charlie and Clay. I was a little worried that Clay wouldn’t be good enough for Charlie but in the end, he won me over. I was a little mad at him during the last 1/4 of the book but he made me smile in the end.

What I thought of the Audio: I thought All Summer Long was a pretty good audiobook. The voices for the men were a little too feminine for me but overall the pacing, narration, and voices for the women characters was spot on.

Final Thoughts: Fans of the Fool’s Gold series will not want to miss All Summer Long.

  1. I read some great reviews on this book and it is on my radar. I hate it when females try to impersonate male voices and it just doesn’t quite work!

  2. I love when you just fall for a couple. I don’t know what it is about the right chemistry but it just WORKS! Gonna have to check this one out (even though, for some reason, when I saw the title, I started singing “All Night Long”… EARWORM!).

  3. I love Susan Mallery! I read book 8 (?) of the Fool’s Gold series and I really enjoyed it!! I still need to post my review though!!! So this is your fav of the series?! I must read it ASAP!
