Book Review: When We Met by Susan Mallery

When We Met

Susan Mallery
Series: Fool's Gold (Book 13)
Publication: HQN; Original edition (April 29, 2014)

Description: New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery invites you back to Fool's Gold, where a newcomer to town might finally meet the man she never knew she needed in this uplifting opposites attract romance…

Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can't be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool's Gold, California, he's cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he's not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe after the devastating loss he's experienced.

Working with pro-football superstars taught tough-talking PR woman Taryn Crawford one thing—she can go toe-to-toe with any man. But then dark, dangerous former Special Ops Angel targets her for seduction…and challenges her to resist his tempting kisses.

Even in four-inch heels, Taryn never backs down. Unless, somehow, Angel can convince her that surrender might feel even better than victory.

My Thoughts: This was another entertaining Fool's Gold romance. Taryn Crawford is still adjusting to life in Fool's Gold after her former football player partners vote to move the business from LA. She's high fashion and high heels and isn't sure she likes all the friendliness.

Angel Whittaker is a partner in the bodyguard school after a career in Special Forces. He's dealing with the deaths of his wife and son in a car accident. He feels guilty that he wasn't there to protect him. 

Angel and Taryn are attracted to each other, but neither is looking for a committed relationship. An affair suits them since neither is willing to risk their heart. 

I enjoyed this story. I liked that Angel got roped into being a troop leader for seven-year-old girls and that Taryn helped him with that. I liked that Taryn had a great group of female friends. 

This was an excellent addition to this long-running series. 

Favorite Quote:
They were a couple of broken souls, she thought, passing him the spare ribs. A man who had loved and lost and a woman who didn't believe in romantic love at all. 
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
