An irresistible new love story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of theFool's Gold series, set in a town Library Journal calls “so appealing, readers will wantto start scoping out real estate.”

To overcome her painful past, baker ShelbyGilmore goes on the hunt for a friend—a male friend—to convince herstubborn psyche that men can be trusted. But where in a town as small as Fool's Gold willthe petite blonde find a guy willing to not date her?

Dark, charmingAidan Mitchell puts the “adventure” in Mitchell Adventure Tours…and intothe beds of his many willing female tourists. Until he realizes he's inadvertently becomethat guy—the one-night Casanova—and worse, everyone in town knows it.Maybe Shelby's boy/girl experiment will help him see women as more than just conquests sohe can change his ways and win back his self-respect.

As Aidan and Shelby explorethe secret lives of men and women, the heat between them fires up the Fool's Gold rumormill. If no one will believe they're just friends, maybe they should give the gossipssomething to really talk about!


  • Best of the series!!

    By AngieMac4398
    Best of My Love is one of my favorite books of the Fool's Gold series. Aiden and Shelby have decided to be friends- definitely not a couple. Yeah, we know how that's going to work out for them. But the journey is lots of fun with hilarity along the path. Haven't you always wondered how the other half thinks? Well, these two take the time to find out. Doing male/female focused activities and learning about each other. Becoming friends and of course something more. I loved so many things about this book. How it made me feel and how much I laughed while reading it. And the dog Charlie. I loved him!! So much fun. We get to visit with past characters too. And get a glimpse into the spin-off series Happily Inc. Ms. Mallery always makes me glad I picked up one of her books. I can't wait to read the next series!! Thank you for a terrific book and the laughs. I really needed this!

Both for reasons of their own are looking to change the perspective on their relationships so they decide to attempt an experiment and become friends just friends. What will they find at the end of this, friendship, or perhaps even more? For fans of Susan Mallery and Fools Gold, you will enjoy this very much. What's so great is that even if you've never visited Fools Gold you'll soon feel right at home. This is a great summer read for by the pool or at the beach.
  • Another great addition

    By Rybecbensmom
    This is another great addition to the Fool's Gold series centering around being friends with the opposite sex. Shelby, trying to overcome her past, proposes an experiment with Aiden where they would be just friends. I enjoyed the various "gender events" they went on as they navigated their friendship. My favorite part was the gender switched event near the end of the book (Aiden and the girls and Shelby with the boys).So pick up the book and enjoy returning to Fool's Gold and seeing old and new friends.
  • wonderful romance

    By momof3boysj
    A wonderful treat to read! When Shelby asks Aidan to be her guy friend, just friends, no one believes them. They learn a lot about the differences between men and women, do things together, and form a genuine friendship. Friendship suddenly doesn't seem like enough, but neither wants to ruin what they have, until it's too late and the attraction is too much to be put aside. Both have to overcome fears and trepidation from the past to make things work for the future, learn to trust, and believe in love. A wonderful HEA!
  • Fool gold.

    By Diva Princess1
    Adrain and Shelby were the perfect pair. They had really the same emotional or physical baggage. The scars stop them both from trusting others as well as theirselves. Good story like all the the fools gold series.
  • Loved the interventions!!!

    By Cheryl SDS
    What a great story line and there couldn't be two more perfect people than Aiden and Shelby to fit right into it. Their goal was to survive six months hanging out together, as friends only, no sex. Shelby needs to learn to trust men and Aiden needs to learn how to be friends with a woman and ONLY FRIENDS! She's up for it but what about him? I felt like I was following these two around watching the story unfold...IN REAL LIFE! I always wondered when Shelby would deal with what her parents did to her and now I have my answer. I loved the role reversal interventions. Aside from working through past traumatic events, the story and characters of this fabulous little town are always fun to read about! I can't wait for my next visit to Fool's Gold, California. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    I have always loved Susan's books. The Fool's Gold series has been a favorite of mine. In this one she deals with the age old question of ' can a man and woman be just friends?' Shelby wants Aidan to just be friends for six months so they can learn about how the male and female should really be. After six months they will then go on their ways to be able to find someone one and fall in love. I enjoy the characters of Fool's Gold and how they enteract with others. Since I hear this is the last in the series, I will miss them. Found this to be a sweet romance of two characters I felt were right for each other. I received an ARC for an honest review.
