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.

If you like romance, this is a decent romantic fairytale. Completely improbable but cute and the character dichotomy is well constructed. For an easy afternoon read thats uncomplicated and reads quickly, this would be the right story. Enjoyed the book however fantastic and unrealistic the story appears.

l have read all the books in this series and l did enjoy them. They are not award-winning books. I would use the term "romance books" to describe them. Hence my headline "nice light reading". One of the things L liked about the series is that each book includes characters from the other books so there is a sense of continuity. In the first book, the reader gets to know the other members of the family before another book comes along to tell their story. Fun, light, easy, entertaining books to read.

I really enjoyed this book. So much emotion packed in to one story!! Mattie is so strong and has a backbone made of titanium. Mac is such a softy and only wants what is best for Mattie and Thomas and does his best knight-in-shinning-armor thing. Mattie is so used to everything going wrong and people believing the worst in her, she isn't sure how to take Mac, but when they finally do come together, it is pure chemistry. This is a quick read with great humor and lots of great banter. A very lovely love story. I honestly can't wait to meet the rest of the McCarthy clan. Janey, the baby sister is up next, and I am anxiously awaiting June 1st.

Well I must say that Marie Force has did it once again!! Although Maddie and Mac are attracted at first sight there love is not an easy one. Maddie has had to struggle all her life, while our hero Mac has been everyone's golden boy since he could remember.In while Maddie struggles to let mac inside despite past hurt they face hurdles around every corner. Including families that hate each other, Maddie's past, and Mac's need to try to fix everything, but in the end Maddie realizes maybe she does need mac.In Mac realizes that maybe there is more to life then just work and pleasing other people.Maybe it's what makes you happy that matters.

My first Nook purchase, and it was a total accident! However, I started it on a boring all day car trip with hopes that it wouldn't be too terrible. Well, what can I say- a typical heavy breathing bodice ripper. I think I got over this genre in 9th grade. Gee- there are apparantly 5 more books in this series on their way.

Ms Force is a talented writer. This book has a believable plot, the characters are well-drawn and also believable. I'm delighted to find this author and have purchased the other two in this series. I'm looking forward to more of Ms Force's writings.

It is a little unrealistic but still not a good read. Who falls in love in oone day and proposes and offers the perfect life. I did like it enough to purchase the book in the series.

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!

1st of series pretty good. Story line on this one was just ok.... Way too many detailed steamy bedroom scenes! My original review was blocked when I suggested it should have adult type ratings and warn about the "s--ual" content!
