Book Blurb: 
Meet the Mitchell brothers of Fool’s Gold, California—five gorgeous men who’ve left a trail of broken hearts in their wake… Maya Farlow learned the hard way to depend only on herself, so when she fell too deeply for the bad-boy charms of Del Mitchell, she did the only thing she could—she ran. Stunned, Del left Fool’s Gold to make his name and fortune in extreme sports. Now ten years later, Maya’s been hired to promote her hometown’s new slogan, The Destination for Romance. The celebrity spokesman is none other than Del, the man she dumped but never forgot. Awkward!

Although Del’s not the type to hold a grudge, he’s determined to avoid falling a second time for the woman who broke his heart. He’s a daredevil, not an idiot. Trouble is, in all his adventures, he never found a rush as exhilarating as Maya’s kiss. Maybe risking his heart will prove to be the biggest thrill of all…

Review: Susan Mallery is one of my go to authors when it comes to summer romance. Thrill Me is another winner. I was totally amazed to know that this the 18th book in the Fool's Gold series.

This is a second chance at love story which is an area of romance of that I'e been reading a lot of. Sometimes its done well and sometimes it makes you roll your eyes. For awhile I thought I might be heading towards the eye rolling area, but  I really found myself liking Maya and Del. They had an interesting history. (And I always find it amusing that people hold torches for their high school sweethearts in these books). Plus there are a few brothers that are going to need stories. I'm all for Aidan settling down.

The one thing that really bugged me was the situation with Elaine, who just happens to be Del's mom as well as Maya's close friend. From the time the problem arises you know it is going to cause problems with Maya and Del. I really hate when the end of the book conflict is really obvious, and this was in your face obvious.

Thankfully the chemistry between Maya and Del was electric. The two of them really fit well together and I love the mixture of heat and humor that came whenever they were together.

Overall, the story worked out well, and I enjoyed reading about the family tensions as the couple found their way back together.
