The Gansett Island Series, Book 10

A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

She's waited a long time for her second chance at love...

It's been twelve years since Jenny Wilks lost her fiancé in the 9/11 attacks in New York City. Since then she's been floundering, trying to find her way. Taking the job as lighthouse keeper on Gansett Island was the best thing she could've done for herself. On the island she's found amazing friends and a wonderful new life. There's only one thing missing and that's romance. She's recently asked her new friends to fix her up with some of the island's more eligible men. While her friends are busy arranging dates for her, Alex Martinez comes to cut the grass at the lighthouse.

He's given up everything to come home to Gansett to care for his ailing mother...

Alex has gone from cultivating orchids at the US Botanic Garden in Washington to cutting grass on Gansett, like he did as a teenager. Running the family business with his brother while managing their mother's dementia requires Alex's undivided attention until a sexy lighthouse keeper shows him there's much more to life than work and endless obligation.

During a scorching summer heat wave on Gansett, Jenny and Alex take comfort in each other, and what begins as a hot summer fling quickly becomes something much more lasting. But will it hold up beyond the heat wave when real life intrudes on their sexy interlude?

Catch up with many of your favorite characters from past Gansett Island books in this latest installment in the New York Times bestselling McCarthys of Gansett Island Series!

This is an amazingly entertaining series!!!  I am starting #11.  They are super romantic, with lots of "spice," but they also have a plot worth reading.  I have enjoyed ALL of them!!!.

I enjoyed reading this book!  I love romance, and it doesn't disappoint.  I love when a series has the same characters in all the books and you can learn more about what is happening with the other characters!!!  Good read

This is the tenth book in this series and I think they should be read in order to get the whole story. This book focuses on Jenny the light house keeper and Alex. Jenny has been through a great tragedy losing her fiancé Toby in the south tower on 9/11. She has come a long way since she moved to Gansett Island to be the light house keeper and is finally ready to date again. Her friends immediately jump to help to set her up with single guys on the island. Then one day she is woken very early by a man mowing the lawn around the light house. She throws a few tomatoes at him to get his attention. She never thought a few tomatoes and early wake up would change her life so much. Alex has moved back to the island to help take care of his mother and with the family business. He has gone from working a job he loved back to mowing lawns. Alex has a lot on his plate right now but one look at Jenny and something takes him over. They don’t even bother to exchange last names. They both like that the other doesn’t know there story. But things quickly go from just sex to meaning more. Could they be just what the other needs? Will Alex be Jenny’s second great love or just the man who helps get fully back to her old self? This book was emotional at times. I felt for Alex and his brother Paul. They are trying to help their mother so much but they need help. Just like the other books you get to read about the other couples on the island. Evan and Grace finally set a date. Dan help Kara avoid what could have been a horrible situation; as well as a bunch of other things. I can’t express how much I love this series. The books pull you in and you wish you could have the characters for real friends. Marie Force you are fantastic.

I love this entire series of books and how the author weaves the updates through each, so we don't lose sight  of  our favorite characters.  This book was especially touching because of the inclusion of Alex and Paul's mother,   Marion, living with the effects of dementia. I have to agree with another reader who said the books  are too short.

Meant for Love is Jenny's story and I have been looking forward to this book since the character was first introduced in the series. Jenny lost her fiancé in the 9/11 attacks in New York. It has been 12 years since his death and Jenny moves to the island to work (and live) at the islands lighthouse. She comes to the island to try to start a new life, away from all the sympathetic looks she receives in her hometown. With the help of her new friends she starts dating again but hasn't met "the guy". That is until she meets Alex Martinez. Alex recently moves back to the island to help take care of his mother. Alex is also tired of all the sympathetic attention he receives, so when he meets Jenny there is an instant spark. Actually it is smoking hot!!! Author Marie Force does an incredible job in creating the chemistry between Jenny and Alex. Plus they really are meant for each other – they are both dealing with heartache and finally meet someone who truly understands what they are going through (and not just sympathizing).  I loved every moment we spent with Jenny and Alex.  But I was disappointed in some of the side stories. It is nice to catch up with other characters but for this book I felt there were too many interruptions (we heard about 5 couples). I felt they were too distracting.  I did love hearing about Janey and Joe (since there was a shocking ending for them in book 9 – Time for Love), but I would have loved to hear more of Luke and Sydney. Despite this I still love the series and can’t wait to read more. Marie Force is one of my favorite authors.  Her stories are well written and have characters you can relate to and fall in love with.  I love the small community setting which makes it more realistic. Her stories are filled with love, romance, family togetherness and friendships. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

I really enjoyed reading the books in this series and this one was no exception. The only problem I had was with the swear words.I got turned off by it. But the story itself was great.
