When We Met

by Susan Mallery

Harlequin | April 29, 2014 | Mass Market Paperbound

When We Met is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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… 

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. 

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a brilliant read for anyone What a fantastic novel. I fell in love with Fool’s Gold from the first page. Mallery paints such a vividly inviting picture of the town that you can’t help but be pulled into this world. The merger of a lovely, quaint small town with individuals used to big city life brings more than a couple of laughs to the reader. Mallery combines a heartfelt tale of two individuals coming together with just enough heat to get your heart racing. Emotions abound, in both the character and the reader, as you travel through this town with the inspiring cast that Mallery has developed. I loved how you get to know the ins and outs of each of the characters in this story. They are such unique yet simultaneously normal individuals that you won’t soon forget them. I loved the fact that character development continued throughout the entire novel. Even in the last chapter we’re learning a bit more about these two, who they were, who they are, and who they will be together. Getting to know them from the most important details to the tiniest allows the reader to easily form an emotional connection with them. Not only do you find yourself wanting to know what happens to them, but wanting them to succeed as well. As a whole, this was the perfect mix of the heartfelt with the cute and cuddly. There’s also just enough heat on the side to peak your interest. I’ve also got to admit that this is my introduction to the town of Fool’s Gold. I’ve read other works by this author before but jumped into this series here. I wasn’t lost for a second. It can be read as a standalone, an entry point to this fantastic series, or in its rightful place in Fool’s Gold. It’s the best of all worlds. (And yes, I will be going back to read the previous novels, and reading the future ones in the series.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Story This is a wonderful addition to the series, Angel and Taryn are put in uncomfortable situations but are able to muddle through with the help of each other. It's great seeing them fall in love.

Read from the Book

"We both know where this is going." Taryn Crawford glanced up at the man standing by her table and ignored the rush of anticipation when she saw who he was. He was tall, with broad shoulders and gray eyes. But the most compelling feature-the one she would guess people pretended didn't exist-was the scar on his neck. As if someone had once tried to slit his throat. Taryn idly wondered what had happened to the person who failed. She supposed there were plenty of women who would be intimidated by the man in front of her. The sheer volume of muscle he had might make someone apprehensive. Not her, of course. When in doubt she put on a power suit and killer heels. If those failed her, she would simply work harder than anyone else. Whatever it took to win. Sure, there was a price, but she was okay with that. Which was why she was able to stare coolly back and ask, "Do we?" One corner of his mouth curved slightly in a sort of half smile. "Sure, but if you're more comfortable pretending we don't, I can make that work, too." "A challenge. Intriguing. You don't expect that to be enough to make me defensive so I start saying more than I had planned, do you?" She made sure she was plenty relaxed in her chair. She would guess the man was paying as much attention to her body language as her words. Maybe more. She hoped he wouldn't make things easy. She was tired of easy. "I would hate for you to be disappointed," she murmured. The
