It also helps that for as much a Joe is a sensitive stud muffin you would hate to leave every morning, janey's finacee David is such a whiney weasel scumbag I am happy the book started the way it did.
What would have helped- maybe some flashbacks with janey and joe from the past which shows that she felt something that she did not want to explore because of her loyalty to David maybe.
Again I really have no complaints- at 32 and having read thousands of books I do rate this one highly. I find Marie Force is a talented writer in which she does get to the point and extends that "happy" fun, sexual moments between two people before the "foil" occurs. Also the foil is just a bump in the road and does not tortue the reader for many many chapters before a quick reconciliation and an ending of the book. I am looking forward to the next book about luke and Sydney. I accidentally discovered this author and all of her books throguh amazon and now I am a loyal fan.
Fool for Love is the second book in the MaCarthys of Gansett Island series and what a delightful series it is. Until Maid for Love, I had not read any books by Marie Force, but now after reading/listening to two, I’m sold. Light contemporary romance is not my first choice of read, but I loved Fool for Love.
Joe Cantrell has been in love with Janey McCarthy since high school, but since Janey has been with David Lawrence for thirteen years, he knows he doesn’t have a chance. Then he receives a call from a crying Janey asking him to help her.
Janey McCarthy is looking forward to her wedding. On their anniversary of thirteen years, she decides to surprise her fiancée. Unfortunately, David is unaware that Janey comes in and sees him in throes of passion with another woman. He’s so involved in fact, he never even realizes Janey is there.
When Joe takes Janey’s desperate call, he makes a mad dash to help her. Could this be the chance he thought would never come?
While this is a light-hearted story, it has many emotionally-charged scenes between the hero and heroine. I loved the developing romance, and it happens remarkably fast, considering Janey has just broken up with her long-time fiancée. However, it is believable. Ms. Force clearly shows that Janey was not truly in love with David and the relationship had gone on long past the time it should have. I had no problem with the speed in which Janey falls in love with Joe.
I fell in love with Janey’s character from the first book in the series, so I was already predisposed to like her. I could feel her pain over her fiancée’ s betrayal, but it was very clear it was more from the loss of her idealistic dreams than the loss of true love. I loved her awe over the passion she feels with Joe, passion that was sadly lacking with David. She behaved like a child let lose in a candy store, and she couldn’t get enough! Having been in a similar situation many years ago, I totally identified with her reaction.
Joe Cantrell is also a great character. He is fierce in his determination to take this opportunity to win Janey’s heart, and he leaves no stone unearthed in his pursuit. It’s so refreshing to read a romance where the hero is the one completely in love and has to convince the heroine that what is budding between is real and lasting.
Since I listened to the audio version as well as reading this book, I want to mention the narration. Eva Kaminsky reads with a great deal of emotion, helping to pull me into the story. She give the male voice a bit of a raspy quality that helps distinguish them from the female characters. I would have enjoyed it more if she had been able to make each voice unique to the character, but I'm sure that is difficult for many narrators.
If you enjoy a sweet love story with plenty of passion and a few laughs along the way, then you will love Fool for Love. It’s a breath of fresh air. Happy reading!
