Hoping for Love Marie Force
Hoping for Love, the title grabs you from the off, as we have all been there dreaming of when Mr Right would come along. Lucky for me he did, 33 years ago!
This is the fifth book from author Marie Force set around the McCarthy’s of Gansett Island.
I haven’t read the early four books but going off this one they can stand alone, although a much fuller enjoyment will be achieved if all the books are read, as the stories of the main characters are developed over the series. I look forward to reading the whole series.
This one is set around Grace Ryan who was the “fat girl.” Taunted and teased and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to change her life as her twenties slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she’s lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. During a boat trip to Gansett Island with the new guy in her life, Grace refuses to have sex with him and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy’s Gansett Island Marina. At home for the summer awaiting the launch of his debut CD, music star-in-the-making Evan McCarthy is performing at the Tiki Bar when he notices Grace looking lost in a sea of happy people. Evan comes to her aid and quickly finds himself smitten. But the last thing Grace needs after all she’s been through is a guy who “doesn’t do relationships.” Will Evan change his ways to win Grace’s heart?
The book is very sexual explicit, but not crude. I found the book a real page turner, believe me I started reading it about 10 pm & next time I looked it was gone 2:30 am! Not good when your two year old grand daughter is coming “to play” at 7am.
I’d definitely give the book a 4 out of 5 stars
