Just one kiss by Susan Mallery Mar 07, 2014

He won't hesitate to put his life on the line…but will he ever risk his heart?

Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw's otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now he's back in Fool's Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won't abandon her again—and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He's returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can't resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice's past doesn't make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they'll succumb to just one kiss… Then one more… Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone's control. Summary from

I absolutely adored this book. I loved how strong of a character Patience was considering everything she has overcome in her life. This author really knows how to pull strong emotions out of her characters. I loved that she wrote Justice as a hero with real emotion. The author’s writing style is both captivating and engaging. This is a delightfully well-written romance with characters that are charismatic and alluring.

I really love the Fool's Gold series, and I was looking forward to this next book in the series.  What I love about the Fool’s Gold books is that even though characters show up in other books, you don't have to read from book one to know what's going on. Although - you will definitely want to read all of the books just because they are that good! Review by staff member Leann
