Dakota Hendrix is a small town girl, who is determined to keep Fool’s Gold on the map. A reality show is to be filmed there, and she’s overseeing the romances.

Dealing with the eligible bachelors is harder than she thought, as an irate brother comes to take his twin brothers, the perfect contestants, home. All kinds of things go haywire in Dakota’s life as she juggles her two jobs and her crush on Finn.

Finn Anderssen tries everything to get the twins to go back home, with no luck. So he stays for a while, despite having to leave his business to a partner. He soon finds himself torn as he can’t get Dakota out of his mind.

The twins are having an interesting time and perhaps love is in the air.

ONLY MINE is a delightful tale of trying to find true love. The book is filled with humor, families, emotion and expertly blended in to sex scenes. It’s a tale with light-hearted characters, in an intense and oddly compelling page turner tale. It was a satisfying book, with a great ending that left me feeling perhaps true love is out there for a lucky few. The emotional drama, added to an expected betrayal as the contest played out.

The lovely heroine seems to juggle life and love better than most. The hero is a man who has a longing to stay but goes anyway. Ms. Mallery’s writing reminded me of the ‘Notebook,’ as the reader is left guessing if the story will end well, and this one has an unusual and unexpected one.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
