All Summer Long
Fool's Gold #9
Released July 24th, 2012
I can't believe the Fool's Gold series is up to NINE books already, not including the three novella's Susan has included in between releases. Nine books in a series and I have adored each and every one.
All Summer Long holds a special place in my heart, not only did I love the storyline, but I LOVED Charlie and Clay. We meet Charlie in Summer Days, and we get to know her better throughout the Summer Nights, but it's in All Summer Long that we get to see her shine, and I found myself liking her more and more with each page. We meet the youngest Stryker brother, Clay, in Summer Nights, when he help Annabelle get Shane to realize that they are meant to be. Any brother than will take a punch to help a girl get her man, is a man after my own heart.
So you have to understand how thrilled I was that Charlie and Clay were getting their own romance, even if they both screw it up a time or two. Charlie is a strong woman, who everyone assumes can handle herself, but Charlie is just like every other woman. Sometimes she needs a little protection, a little guidance and someone to show her that sex is nothing to be afraid of, that is where Clay Stryker comes in. Little do these two know, the second they ignite the fire under the sheets, they will be changed forever.
Clay Stryker is just looking for a more meaningful career, and he has some ideas for making a name for himself in Fool's Gold, while the town, more the ladies of the town, still see him as a piece of sexy "ASS". Charlie is the only one to see him for what he could be, and to treat him like a friend instead of the male model that he used to be. But Clay has a few fears of his own, and being with Charlie might be more of a risk than he is willing to take.
I think this might just be one of my favorite Fool's Gold books ever. I enjoyed every page of All Summer Long, and found myself on the seat of my pants in anticipation of when Charlie and Clay would finally get together. This was such a fun read, and ANYONE will enjoy the blooming romance between Clay and Charlie.
I highly recommend this book, and I hope that you all fall in love with Clay as much as I did.
Enjoy and Happy Reading!!
