Kelly and Kimberly review Two Of A Kind by Susan Mallery

TITLE: Two of a Kind
SERIES: Fools Gold #12
CHARACTERS: Gideon Boylan & Felicia Swift
AUTHOR: Susan Mallery


New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery welcomes readers back to Fool’s Gold, where a one-time fling could become the real thing…

Felicia Swift never dreamed she’d hear a deep, sexy voice from her past in tiny Fool’s Gold, California. The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away…on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool’s Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that.

Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm’s length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men…and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her.

As these two misfits discover that passion isn’t the only thing they have in common, they just might figure out that two of a kind should never be split apart.


My second Susan Mallery book was just as good as the 1st one I read Just One Kiss #11 in the Fools Gold series.

Felicia (who we met in Just One Kiss and I would highly recommend you read Just One Kiss first) is the brainy, sexy, socially awkward new girl. Felicia has had a very strange and lonely childhood. Now she just wants to be normal. To finally fit in. To finally know what it is like to be loved and to love. But the person she wants to do all this with has made it clear that he his not the forever type.

Gideon may have dreams of Felica. He may wish that he could be everything she needs, but he knows he can’t. He is not whole any more, not after what happened to him. And Felicia deserves someone better then him. But when Felicia asks him to teach her how to date and teach her how she should act with a boyfriend. Gideon is powerless to say no.

These two are so perfect for each other. Throw in some twists and turns of life, the past and the possible future, you have an awesome story. You will be rooting for Gideon to man up and for Felicia to stand up for what she wants. Very much looking forward to the next book in this series Three Little Words.

4.5 Stars So this is the 12th in the Fool’s Gold series and with all of her books Susan Mallery takes us to a place that not only do we love to visit but we wish we could live.

I will be honest and say I was unsure about this story when I first started it. Felicia is a bit hard to get to know. She is what we know as “book smart but not street smart” and is a bit rough around the edges. She has never lived a normal life and her IQ is off the charts high so while at first her intelligence and yet her naivety is a little overwhelming it soons becomes endearing. Gideon on the other hand is the strong silent type. We met Gideon in the last Christmas story Mallery put out so while we knew he was a loner we also got to see that he had a heart in that muscled up body and this books just shows us more of it and gets to the heart of why he is now the strong silent guy he is.

As with all of this series you can easily pick up any book to read it as a stand alone and this story is no different but this story really gives the reader a feel of the town of Fool’s Gold that we haven’t seen as much of lately. You will never go wrong visiting Fool’s Gold or reading any of Susan Mallery’s books.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

    I loved how Felicia might not have had parents in the biological sense but through her life created a family from people she came in contact with! Love the book! I am excited about the next in the series!

    Two of a Kind is a fantastic read for those of you who are Fools Gold junkies. YOu find out more about Gideon & Felicia along with Mayor Marsha and Morgan, and Charlie and Clay have a major surprise for you to enjoy as well.

    Love Fool’s Gold, its always a pleasure to return. “Two of a Kind” is the story of Felicia and Gideon each strapped emotionally by what has happened in their past. Susan Mallery created the best dialogue for Felicia, the clinical and textbook approach to conversations with the rest of the characters was hilarious!!! Can’t wait until the next book “Three Little Words” is out!

    I loved this book. Felicia and Gideon are great and the supporting cast are so entertaining. What I love so much is that Susan continues to write and build the community of Fools Gold while keeping each and every story unique. It’s a gift!

    I love Fool’s Gold. Felicia is so funny. In Just One Kiss, I was so curious of her, but in Two of a Kind, I knew I liked her. I knew she would be a good friend of my.
