Overview

The McCarthys of Gansett Island: Book 2

Joe Cantrell, owner of the Gansett Island Ferry Company, has been in love with Janey McCarthy for as long as he can remember. At the same time, Janey has been dating or engaged to doctor-in-training David Lawrence. When things go horribly wrong between David and Janey, she calls her “fifth brother” Joe, one of the few people in her close circle who lives on the mainland. Janey decides a few days with Joe is just what she needs before she goes home to the island to face her parents and family with the news of her broken engagement. It was bad enough for Joe loving Janey from afar, but having her in his house is pure torture. Will he take advantage of this opportunity to show her what they could have together? And what will Joe’s best friend and Janey’s protective older brother Mac have to say about it?

    Good Romance Reading Continues Into Book Two Of The Series

    This book is filled with romance and hot scenes. Characters are carried over from the first book to this one and we are introduced to some new characters. More family dynamics are brought out. One guys stupid action lays the groundwork for an entire new romance. Hope we find where the romance is headed in book three. Don't give up on the series! The more you read, the better it gets!

    more from this reviewer

    Favorite of the series!

    After wasting all that time being engaged to a man and being in a long distance relationship, Janey finally attempts to right the wrongs in her life. Good for her for seducing a man even though it was a little wrong since she figured out pretty quickly that he loved her. I admired Joe for taking her as she was while trying to guard his heart at the same time. He didn't tell her how stupid she was for not just ending everything with her fiance right away or give her an ultimatum. He just basked in the joy of being with her.

    In this story the author really tells Janey's story and you realize how gullible she was about her fiance. Granted, she was in love but still. How can you be with someone who doesn't feel that your education is as important as his, who takes his time to call you back, who rarely visits? My heart almost broke for Joe when he overheard her say some things out of anger but was fairly happy with his midievil antics at the end!

    Recommend - if you like to read a series

    I've enjoyed reading about the McCarthy's. I've read several of the books, but have not finished the series.

    My only problem with this series, is the length of the books. Seems there is so much catching up from other books and way too much explicit sex scenes. If all that's taken away, there is a great story, but just not long enough. Would have rather had less sex scenes and two of the characters in one book.

    Love reading them.

    Seems like the author can't write a story. Just fills it with sex scenes. Could have been an excellent series if there were more substance.

    Amazing!

    I am still loving Gansett Island Series!  I especially love that we get to keep up with all the characters that too me is the best.

    This time you get to find out about Joe Cantrell & Janey McCarthy! Joe has grown up around Janey & is like a 5th brother. He has loved her for son long now from a distance!  Why you ask? Well Janey is engaged! She has been engaged for two years but has spend 13 years all together with her fiance. On their  anniversary she goes to visit him & find him in bed with another women, she is heartbroken & torn to pieces. She calls the only one she has always loved & leaned on always! Can you guess who that is? Its Joe! He comes to her rescue & scoops her! During this time she says she cannot go back to island yet so she stays with Joe on mainland & sparks happen between those two! I could say more but I do not wanna ruin the surprise! So if you wanna know more go read the book! I promise you will not be dissapointed!
