Back Cover Blurb:
To overcome her painful past, baker Shelby Gilmore goes on the hunt for a friend—a male friend—to convince her stubborn psyche that men can be trusted. But where in a town as small as Fool's Gold will the petite blonde find a guy willing to not date her?
Dark, charming Aidan Mitchell puts the "adventure" in Mitchell Adventure Tours…and into the beds of his many willing female tourists. Until he realizes he's inadvertently become that guy—the one-night Casanova—and worse, everyone in town knows it. Maybe Shelby's boy/girl experiment will help him see women as more than just conquests so he can change his ways and win back his self-respect.
As Aidan and Shelby explore the secret lives of men and women, the heat between them fires up the Fool's Gold rumor mill. If no one will believe they're just friends, maybe they should give the gossips something to really talk about!
If I thought the plot of this novel was fantastic, the characters were definitely off the wall. I can’t remember the last time that I had so much fun getting to know two individuals as they got to know each other, but most especially themselves.
This novel is both a fantastic addition to the series as well as a great novel to read on its own. My copy is bound to be dog-eared I short order as I’m already ready to dive back in and read it again.
