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…

Thrill Me takes us back to Fools Gold to get to know Maya, who first appeared in Kiss Me, and her first love Del. I like Maya and Del, they were a fun couple and I liked the fact that they dealt with how their relationship ended the first time like adults. They addressed the issue and moved on without a lot of excess drama.This book definitely seemed to be about who Maya and Del were individually in addition to being about them as a couple. It was nice to see Maya realize that she had been reacting to life versus actually making plans, but I got frustrated with her waiting for Del to make a move. I also liked seeing Del mend fences with his brothers, it would actually have been nice to see a little more of those interaction. As much as I enjoyed Thrill Me, I didn’t love it. The book was well written and the characters were great, but everything felt a little predictable. It almost seemed like it was more of a “transition” book to introduce the Mitchell family to Fools Gold than really a story about the two main characters.
If you have been following the Fools Gold series, I would definitely suggest picking this one up. Favorites from other stories make brief appearance and you learn a little more about the family coming up in future books.
