I was really eager to find out what the story was with Nevada and Tucker. All we knew was that something happened between them…something that involved them seeing each other naked and him breaking her heart. When we get the story, we find out that Tucker really screwed up. But the worse part is that he doesn’t really know the extent of how badly because he was so wasted that night. All I know is that I would’ve held on to that heartbreak just as long as Nevada. Tucker has grown up and learned from his mistakes, and he really does feel bad about what happened with Nevada. The main problem is that he learned the wrong lesson from all of it.
For me, Only His was the funniest book in the Fool’s Gold series so far. A lot of it was Nevada and Tucker, but it was also because of a certain sculptor entering into her “feminine period.” Some of the things that happened to Nevada or that she stumbled upon were just so unfortunate that I couldn’t help but laugh. She did have bad luck in that respect. Though I was happy Denise finally got a…er, happy ending. :)
In this book, we get to know the next three protagonists of the next Fool’s Gold books a little better. I’m really intrigued by the librarian most of all. I bet her book will be very interesting indeed. ;) Now I can’t wait to meet the men, which Susan Mallery has said are cowboys! Oh yes…I like cowboys.
I loved the wedding at the end of this book. I loved seeing the different styles of the Hendrix sisters all in one place. It was really the most beautiful, perfect ending for each of them. My love for this town and its residents grows with each book and I will eagerly anticipate the next ones.

Wedding bells are ringing in Fool’s Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they’ve seen each other naked, but she’ll never forget the way he broke her heart.
Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada’s “business only” ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life. But when great business partners turn out to be so much more, every rule gets broken. Will either of them be willing to try again…or will their past get in the way?
