"I LOVE LOVE LOVE every single little thing about Longing For Love!!! It was simply PERFECT!! I think that it is definitely my favorite of the series so far!! I love Blaine and Tiffany and I love how Marie Force wrote their relationship with such a mixture of love and laughter. I was sucked in immediately and I never wanted to leave!! Blaine *sigh* I never wanted Longing For Love to end and I found myself trying to read slower to prolong the story. BEST OF THE BEST rating. --Belle's Book Bag --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

LONGING FOR LOVE
Series favorite Tiffany Sturgil steals the spotlight in Longing for Love as her new boutique Naughty & Nice opens in downtown Gansett, right in time for the annual spring Race Week festivities. Finally divorced and ready for a new beginning, Tiffany wonders if sexy Police Chief Blaine Taylor thinks of her as often as she thinks of him since their explosive encounter last fall. Back then he directed her to call him the second she was officially divorced, but the opening of her store and her unconventional advertising "campaign" have put the island's lingerie queen at odds with the town's top cop. Despite their clashes, when these two finally get together after months of steamy build up, readers will need to keep a fire extinguisher close at hand!
Blaine has been burned in the past by love affairs gone wrong, and he's wary about risking too much too soon. But he quickly discovers that Tiffany's sarcastic rejoinders and bitter outer shell hide a badly wounded heart of gold. He also discovers she's a "sex-toy fraud" and convinces her she can't possibly sell the merchandise without trying it out first... While he finds himself thinking of her all the time, the mayor is after him to curb her sexy advertising and his mother worries that Blaine has taken on another "project" who will break his heart.
As Blaine and Tiffany fight for their happily ever after, readers' favorite characters from past books are back for more island adventures. Joe and Janey return to Gansett for the summer and discover the big secret his mother has been keeping. Evan learns that Grace hasn't told her parents about him. Stephanie's restaurant is ready to open in the renovated Sand & Surf Hotel. Dan keeps showing up to "visit" Kara at work, Mac is worried about Maddie's upcoming meeting with her deadbeat dad and a Race Week catastrophe reminds everyone what's really important.
The McCarthys of Gansett Island takes a decidely erotic turn in this seventh book! If hot, sexy men in uniform cavorting with hot, sexy women who sell sex toys for a living aren't your thing, this book might not be for you!

"With the McCarthy's of Gansett Island, Marie Force makes you believe in the power of true love and happily ever after. Over and over again." --Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author of the Serendipity series
"I always look forward to a Marie Force release. She manages to create lovable characters who can get a reader to fall in love with them in as little as five words (Hi, my name is...). There is something special about the group that lives on Gansett Island. It's always enjoyable to be able to reconnect with our friends from previous stories, drop in on their lives or meet new friends. They're a fun, friendly, loving group of people who make you want to go back to Gansett Island again and again." --Night Owl Reviews on SEASON FOR LOVE.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I loved the growing relationship which actually started long before Tiffany and Blaine finally 'got together' once her divorce was finalized. Blaine is one HOT man and Tiffany turned out to be his match in every way that counts. That he turned out to be so intuned to Tiffany's daughter only adds to Blaine's appeal. Tiffany really turns out to be such a complicated character. She was written with depth and emotion. I especially liked her interactions with her ex-husband (the louse).
So many wonderful characters came to visit in this book, too! We even got some real drama and a fearful situation. Had me on the edge of my seat! I loved the idea that David might be attracted to Daisy AND that Kara and Dan found their attraction to one another. I really LIKE Dan!
The outcome of Maddie's meeting with her real deadbeat father was written wonderfully and what a good thing Big Mac did for her when he attended the meeting. I think between Ned and Big Mac, that Maddie has great Dads. Hopefully soon, Francine will be able to marry the love of her life!
Fabulous book Marie. Thank you!
Naughty and Nice was not well received on the island when it first opened, and gradually people began to frequent it. I thought the steaminess was appropriate to the story. The storyline represented both people supportive of the sexy store, and people against it. If your personal preference is to avoid a book with sexier scenes, you might want to take a pass on this one.
My problem, (being perfectly honest, this was not the writer's problem), was in trying to keep up with all of the couple's. It had been a while since I read some of the earlier books, so I spent some time trying to remember their storylines. Once I remembered the who, what, when, where, and why, it was smooth sailing. It was also nice to revisit the couple's and get an update on their lives.
Each book is a standalone. I would recommend that if this is the first book you read in the series, that you read Maid for Love, Book 1, next. I think the Gansett Island series is more enjoyable if you read the books in order.
Loved reading up on everyone, most especially very happy for Caro and Seamus. I would have really like a book relating to Dan and Kara though, I think theirs is a really good story also.
Lots of great possibilities - looking forward to reading more of this series.
