Maddie Chester is just living her life on Gansett Island on her way to work when she bumps into Mac McCarthy, literally and he begins to fall for her, figuratively. Mac is the kinda of guy who goes the extra mile and helps Maddie despite her repeated objections to take care of her son. She has always done thing for herself and doesn't want any help, especially a McCarthy's, but can't deny her attraction for long. Just as Maddie starts to believe in Mac and a life she never allowed herself to dream, something from her past that still plagues her is thrust into the spotlight.

After reading an excerpt and finding where I could buy it (Thanks to Marie Force), I started it and before I knew it, had read it front to back. It's a sweet romance with steam and a terrific storyline. Her characters are real people you can connect with, living their lives and finding love when they're not expecting it.

If your looking for a contemporary romance that will make you sigh in delight and has unexpected turns, I'd recommend any book by Marie Force. One of my favourites is Love At First Flight.

    Fun Series to Delve Into

    I really enjoyed the entire series of this Island family. It was fun to go from book to book and follow the lives and loves of each young person and their strong parents. The books drew me in with their strong individual stories. I went right from one to the next to keep up with "what will happen next". It was fun! Loved them!

    Liked the series, she get raunchy as the series progresses as if

    Liked the series, she get raunchy as the series progresses as if to try to shock or keep you interested. It was not needed as the family she has created is really likeable. I did read the entire series anyway. Decent beach reads.

    Family ties, redemption and love

    I really like this series, and have begun to read all of them. Fleshes out the realities and challenges of living on a small island. Shows characters with depth and emotion and has a happy ending!

    Great easy read

    Light and funny easy read. Makes you want more information about the other family members. I later purchased the other books in the series. I am going to read more from this author.

    Easy reading, good love story

    The location where this story took place was a main focus and made it a very enjoyable book. The characters were real and you can imagine living and working there, I would recommend this book and any other by
    this author.
