Susan Mallery's Two of a Kind

Book Description from Goodreads: 

Felicia Swift never dreamed she'd hear a deep, sexy voice from her past in tiny Fool's Gold, California. The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away...on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool's Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that. 

Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm's length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men...and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her. 

As these two misfits discover that passion isn't the only thing they have in common, they just might figure out that two of a kind should never be split apart.

My Review 

Having read the 10.5 books in this series prior to Two of a Kind I kind of knew what to expect when reading Susan's new book. Once again she did not disappoint. The story is about two new characters that came to Fool's gold in the last two books. Felicia one of the main characters moved to Fool's Gold to help Justice and his friends set up their "Bodyguard School" and found that this town was just what she needed in her life. However, long be hold she hears a sexy voice on the radio that sounds alot like the man she hooked up with years ago. 

Gideon moved to Fool's Gold to escape his past so he bought up two radio stations and thought he could make a new start. However, long be hold the one woman who he never could forget show's up in town and is there to stay. They try to ignore each other except until Felicia gets offered the job of taking over the festivals in fools gold and needs advice from the one man who really knows her. As the story continues you get to see their relationship blossom and go through rough patches along with interesting curve balls thrown at them.

I feel like this book was another step up from what I have read of Susan's books. It seems with every book that she writes it gets better and better. Her back stories on the two main characters always seem to become more intriguing and really grab your attention. There were defiantly twists and turns in the books that I did not see coming but defiantly a needed add to the book. I am very interested to see where she will go with Isabel and Fords story in Three Little Words!
