The McCarthys of Gansett Island: Book 1

Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she's knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy's Resort Hotel by Gansett's "favorite son," Mac McCarthy. He's back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be "maid" for love.

While the book was NOT fantastic or great, it was a decent to good read for the most part. A predictable storyline with twists and turns, I do believe in love at first sight, but the writer's weak transitions left me disappointed. Some of her word choices had me scratching my head. The ending was stronger than I anticipated. I will read the next one in the series though.

Good bodice-ripper. As for those who didn't like the sex....umm...have you ever read books in this genre before?! That's what it is! If you don't like the genre, don't read it! At least it wasn't a typical free "romance" book with preachy biblical overtones...there's been too many of those lately.

Would have enjoyed it more without the sex. A great author doesnt need to add smut. And this is a great author.

While this book has an interesting premise, quickly the reader discoveries there is no depth....even though the hero has no experience with children, he does not have any trouble bathing or changing diapers, etc.... the entire story is like that -- the hero is perfect, the heroine completely wronged and misunderstood by the entire town....

This was a cute story. It was not exceptional, I wasn't dying to turn the page to see what happened next, but I enjoyed it. The plot was predictable, the characters somewhat shallow. It passed the time, though, and it was enjoyable.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!! This is a must read -- I read Book 1 Maid for Love on a Friday and am already on book 8 !! Maid for Love is the intro to the McCarthy family and the romance of Mac and Maddie! Marie Force does an exceptional job of updating all characters with each book!

This is the first by Marie Force that I have read and it was fantastic. This book completely pulled me in right away. Marie Force writes a story that makes you wish you could be friends with the characters and live where they live. I felt for the characters and was pulling for them so much. In this book Mac McCarthy has come back to help his parents but doesn’t plan to stay. He wants to get in and get out. He is on a forced leave from work on doctor’s orders. All his plans change quickly after arriving on the island. He steps off the curb and right into Maddie, knocking her off her bike and badly injuring her in the process. Maddie can’t work with her injuries and then there is her son and taking care of him. Mac offers to cover her shifts and his family’s hotel and help care for her son. After all it’s his fault she is hurt. There is just something about Maddie that brings all kinds of things that Mac has never felt before to the surface. He wants to help her, protect her, and so much more. Maddie isn’t so receptive to Mac’s help much less anything else from him. Maddie refuses to acknowledge what she feels for Mac. Maddie has a reputation that is undeserved and comes from her high school days. Maddie tries to stay out of way as much as possible and just live day to day. Mac wants to fix everything for her. Will Maddie accept Mac’s help? Will Mac be able to prove to Maddie that he is different from all the other men she has encountered before? I can’t say enough about how much I love this book. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series. Marie is fantastic author. This series is a must read for sure.
