Summary from 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?

This is my second Fool’s Gold book and while not as good as Three Little Words it was still enjoyable.  Yes, I know I am really them out of order but I loved Three Little Words so much I borrowed whichever Fool’s Gold book my library had.

I really liked Nevada and the fact that she is able to hold her own in what is typically a male dominated industry and yet hold on to her femininity.  She wasn’t one of those characters who felt like she had to act like a man in order to do the job which I really liked.  She also has her moments that cracked me up.  I don’t think I will ever forget the scene where she walks in on her mother doing the deed on the kitchen table.  Talk about traumatizing. :)

Tucker wasn’t a hero that grabbed me as much as some of my other favorite romantic heroes which is why I didn’t rate this one quite as high.  Yes he was sexy but the fact that he made a fool of himself over Cat and then developed this bitterness towards all love seemed like such a cop out.

What I did love about this book though were all of the supporting characters.  I cannot wait to read more about Charlie, Heidi (I need to find out what the deal is with those feral cows!) and Annabelle.  The entire book is filled with such an interesting cast of characters that it will have you dying to read the rest of the series.
