Summary (from
Welcome to Fool's Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There's lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there's just one tiny problem in Fool's Gold: the men don't seem to stick around. Maybe it's the lure of big-city life, or maybe it's plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.

Charity's nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer—everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she's not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he's perfect just the way he is. But maybe that's just what he needs—someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he's just chasing perfect.

Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery starts out with Charity's first day on the job as the new city planner. She wants and expects everything to go perfect, until it doesn't and then Josh Golden comes to her rescue. Josh is the typical popular guy that everyone wants and has the steryotype of sleeping with most of the girls in town. Charity feels drawn to him the second her eyes meet his, and she knows she's in over her head but he will never feel the same way. She then tries against her will to stop the feelings she gets from him everytime he's in the same room as her. But maybe Charity is everything Josh needs.

This book was super cute. I loved how the characters were so interesting and you felt compelled to finish the book and see where the author was going to take the plot. I also really liked point of view change from the characters. Most of the book, however, was written from Charity's point of view but you get a few chapters from Josh.

Will I reread it?
Defiantly, I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a light read that makes you swoon. This was the first book I read from Susan Mallery, and she didn't dissapoint. I will defiantly be on the lookout for more of her books.

This book will be released on April 27, 2010
This book was given to me by the publisher for no compensation
