Hold Me by Susan Mallery

Hold Me by Susan Mallery
Fools Gold #16
Published by HQN Books on April 28, 2015

Summary: "Destiny Mills believes passion has its place—like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for once…the rest is terrified what'll happen if she does.

Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills—and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trust—and before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.

I love all of the Fool's Gold books, but Destiny and Kipling's story fell a little flat for me.  I think Destiny's backstory was the part of book that I had trouble with.  Her parents are famous, and she's a virgin who gets pregnant after having sex one time.  Sigh.  I hope the next book in this year's trilogy is has a better character.

Disclosure: I received a digital galley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
